Cases like this against the state, a top notch lawyer should be awarded to them and all the money it costs comes out of the cops involved paycheck so they have some skin in the game.

It needs to be this way because the state has everything at their disposal unlike citizens to fight back.

Yes, it's the dad's fault for immediately and completely complying with police instructions without hesitation.

The cop apologists on this thread are disgusting. Cops can never do anything wrong, right

Infuriating! How about his fellow police release a dog onto his daughter if/when he has one. And then just say 'oops! my bad!' This guy is a demonstrated danger to society, and should be rotting away in concrete cage. But nope..he just switched from K9 to patrol. That's it. My god.

In cases like this, I wonder how many would support self defense when you are unlawfully under attack?

My guess is that, if the man attacked the cops, we would have never heard about the initial miscommunication and the mans history would be laid out for all to see to make him into a criminal.

I have in the past. The courts have also.

That's what the headline (copied to the thread title) was meant to evoke. And the result is what happens when people emote rather than think.

The cop hatred is clear here, as evidenced by calls to fire or imprison them all. This happened quickly, and the only one who could be considered to have acted too quickly was the K-9 officer. The others didn't ask him to intervene. And no one knowingly released that dog to maul an infant as the title suggests.

There was miscommunication all around. The guy they questioned never said a thing about a baby in the car, and the responding K-9 officer saw movement in the car (the red SUV that a "witness" claimed to have seen a "perp" get into). Turns out there wasn't even an attempted robbery, and that information, reported to police, was incorrect (someone [the black guy] wasn't allowed to return an opened item and made an offhand comment about coming back to rob the place, so the shop owner called the cops).

No perp, wrong guy ID'd as getting into the red SUV by "witness," ....miscommunication all around. No wonder everyone was confused. Which is probably why, after almost a year, no one (much less all of them) has either been fired or imprisoned.
