Yes, I would've preferred it if was something more gentle that had taken me down as well. Maybe a turtle perhaps? Or a sloth?

3- I think the cop was thinking more on the narcotics side. Police dog=drug dog, a lot of suspects try to flea and drop their drugs along the way so the cop can't find it to charge them with it which is stupid because running is a felony. It happens all the time on cops lol

I feel that an officer of the law would be pretty unsympathetic to your plight, they hear every excuse in the books while on the job. That being said, I feel bad for you OP, I know if it'd been a clown chasing me, I probably would have shat my pants at some point.

Seems more like excessive force because he needs to go off reasonable suspicion before he can react unless he gave a verbal command and op disregarded it then I think he could make a decision to react but it still seems a little excessive to me.

#1: Exactly when was he going to tell the cop? If he's afraid of dogs, he's just going to reflexively avoid the situation and that's when the cop reacted.

That's the last thing we need. Cops dressed up as clown patrolling the streets. Now that will scare the shit out of the bad guys.

The cop was just trying to do his job and OPs behavior does sound really suspicous. I'm afraid of dogs too and can understand why OP would do that though.

Still the bacon of the law offered no verbal warning or an attempt to communicate with OP. I think it's a bit overkill to attack someone with a dog just because they began to walk away.

Maybe op isn't telling the whole story... The officer maybe did tell op to stop... Op Then decided to make some lame excuse and put it on fml

sue their bloody arses for emotional distress and whatever else you can get away with. that's just police run amock

The cop was probably too out of shape to catch the OP themselves (too many donuts) and the dog was handy, so yeah sic em fido...

The police are not employed to go around making people uncomfortable. The officer should have requested that the OP stopped, then asked why they were running - OP could have explained that they were uncomforatble around dogs and the officer could have requested a search after removing the dog from the situation. Simply setting the dog on them was unreasonable force and the OP has a case to press charges against the officer. I personally would do so, and inform the press, a lot of police are simp

That sucks. I used to be terrified of dogs when I was a kid. I grew out of it eventually, though. I'm not really sure how, just one day I wasn't afraid anymore.

Seriously. I saw a bunch of pigs scream like banshees and tackle an underage girl to the floor for being drunk and having a slight slur in her speech on Cops or some other show like that. She literally wasn't doing anything but just looking a bit buzzed, but when she admitted that she had been drinking, about 5 of them ganged up on her and took her down immediately. Ridiculous, albeit funny.

If someone makes it obvious that they are trying to get away from a cop (never mind that it was actually the dog) then it looks very suspicious, like they had committed a crime and so this is NOT unnecessary force.

Reply

How is it unnecessary? From the cop's point of view the OP was trying to get away from him/her, looks very suspicious and is grounds to detain the OP Edit: Sorry about double post stupid app made it look like first one wasn't added..

Reply

yes it is, normal protocol would be to ask the person why they are running away (you know, speak to them) rather than setting a dog on them.

Yes, cynophobia. I was bit as a child (twice) I have it and it sucks because all my neighbors own dogs. Strays are the worst!

Yes have a perfectly good dog put down because it was doing what it was trained to do. That sounds about right.

Reply

what the fuck 13! why dies the dog have to pay for anything, I bet you one of those that tapes their dogs and leaves them in the garbage can.

Reply

13, no17 is right. I hate dogs aswell because they tend to scare my son but it's actually the owners that are the ones who need to be put down if anything. There are also respectful dog owners and handlers with well trained dogs.

Reply

I agree with going after that ass hole cop, Thats fucked up, but the dog was only a tool doing what it was told. No need to punish the dog

Reply

Or...he could be retrained. Obviously the next time yous screw up at work (which I'm guessing is daily) you should be fried.

Reply

Idk why people keep saying it was the officers fault, OPs' behavior does sound extremely sketchy. You can't blame him for just doing his job

Reply

You have to give a verbal warning before you release the dog for just this reason. You have to give the suspect a chance to surrender before you just sick a dog on them.
