Police dogs barred from crowd-control duty in St. Louis following review of Ferguson protests

Canines will no longer be used for crowd control in St. Louis County after a federal investigation concluded that the policy proved to be “inappropriate and ineffective” when used on protesters last year in Ferguson, Missouri.

The St. Louis County Police Board adopted a measure Wednesday that explicitly prohibits dogs from being deployed for crowd control, the Post-Dispatch reported. The decision was made less than two weeks after the practice was condemned in a report published by the Justice Department’s Office of Community Oriented Policing Service, also known as COPS.

    It’s time for a year long blue flu epidemic in St. Louis.

    Most Blacks are afraid of big dogs, so the use of dogs gives the police an unfair advantage, and infringes on the rioters rights to burn, steal, loot, and destroy property. Switch to all 100 lb. + Rottweiler’s, Akita’s, and Mastiffs, and stop all riots cold.

    The police are no longer allowed to ‘police’ the streets of St Louis, if Blacks are involved. They have a ‘civilian’ review board, (spell that Black Lives Matter, but cops lives don’t!) Talk about condescension! The inmates are now running the cities police department!

    They already removed the ability of police officer to respond and prevent Rioters from Rioting now you remove the Police K9. What will ferguson politicians and the Justice department do now, issue keys of businesses, and gasoline/matches to the rioters to keep from inconveniencing them while they loot and burn the city down.
