Police dogs are used to violate your fourth amendment right. The dogs can be triggered by the officer to create a false positive to search your possessions without a warrant. And police dogs have a 50% success rate.

Read the Constitution, then tell me that a dog can void the fourth amendment. I like your Philosophy Sam, but giving up your security for freedom is insane.

So Bowzer's batting 500. That's better than A-Rod, and they're not doing more drugs than Lindsey Lohan to get the job done. Dogs smell 1000 times better than humans, so they're an asset to cops who are an asset to us. That philosophy works for me, and if they go Cujo on a crackhead don't look for me to reach for the hankies. I'm a fan of the fourth amendment too, and I hate illegal search and seizure by crackheads from AH next door while I'm at work (a four letter word to them). Unless you live in a cement pillbox, cops are your friends, and dogs are their tools. Better to get bitten than shot, and the threat of a dog can cool down a bad situation. All of the other police forces are constantly borrowing our dog teams (hey budget dudes- make them kick down some to help this cost. No need to shoulder it all ourselves), so enjoy the fact that dogs have better batting average than our city council.
