BREAKING NEWS – Sacramento, California – The California Assembly’s Public Safety Committee has approved a bill that would ban the use of police dogs for arrests, apprehensions and crowd control, apparently a first-in-the-country measure. The authors of the bill cited the need for the removal of police dogs due to racial bias and violence against Black Americans.
“The use of police canines has severe and potentially deadly consequences for bite victims, especially communities of color,” stated the ACLU California Action. “Let’s be honest and blunt. Blacks are the fastest ethnicity… by far. This bill not only protects them if they are caught by a police dog, it also protects the dog who may be chasing an extremely fast brutha, which may cause the canine’s heart to explode due to shear exhaustion. The U.S. Olympic sprinters confirm our position.”
