Indiana Middle Schooler Mauled By Police Dog In Mock Drug Raid

k9This is how kids spend their days in school now – as suspects planted with drugs in simulated SWAT raids? Via Indiana’s Brazil Times:

An 11-year-old student was transported by ambulance to St. Vincent Clay Hospital for treatment for “minor injuries” sustained following a bite from a Brazil Police Department K-9 officer at the Red Ribbon Awareness week kick-off event.

According to the report, the officer and his K-9 partner, Max, as well as another K-9 team carried out a simulated raid of a party with actors in place to help “educate the Clay County fifth-graders on drug awareness.”

He added the juveniles in the scenario met with officers prior to the start and were asked to remain still when the dogs searched for narcotics. A very small amount of illegal drugs were hidden on one of the juveniles to show how the dogs can find even the smallest trace of an illegal substance.

“Max began searching the juveniles,” according to the officer’s report. “The first male juvenile began moving his legs around as Max searched him. (This is what) I believe prompted Max’s action to bite the male juvenile on the left calf.”

  1. Lesson for the day: the pigs and their pigdogs are not your friends, kids.

  2. Planting drugs on children then unleashing the hounds. You can sleep safer tonight, citizen.

    Somewhere along the line, “protect and serve” got horribly mangled with “harass and detain” and everyone just rolled with it.

  5. Male juvenile? Dude, kid has a name, a class, an age and a description more than ‘male juvenile’. Maybe you should learn these things before you treat them like suspects.
