some of the "critics" do have a point, but in a different way. obviously it's a good apprehension. the guy was wanted for a felony, had evaded arrest and had a history of violence towards the cops. good bite. no question there. my problem is the three guys (including the handler) who stand around and watch the guy grab the dog while he's on the bite and obviously not very affected by the bite. on the second bite, finally a guy with some sense steps in and tackles the guy while the dog is on the bite. hooray for that guy! too often people believe that once the dog is on the bite, the fight is over. nothing except a shot to the dome with a gun is a guarantee to stop a bad guy and one should always have a back up plan for if and when your use of force isn't working (be it pepper spray, taser, dog, bean bag round, etc).Phil Dodson said:The subject in question is wearing a leather jacket which took some of the sting out of the bite more than likely. I do not know the circimstances but there is never enough backup as far as I am concerned. He is not cooperating obviously and has probably not been searched for weapons either. I love the critics, I really do.
