Police and dogs are a bad combination


February 28, 2019

I grew up in Birmingham, Alabama and watched police sic dogs on blacks merely because they wanted to sit wherever they wanted on the bus and to eat at public lunch counters. I’ve not liked the combination of police and dogs ever since.

Yes, very few people in Haines may bring drugs into our community. But I don’t believe that merits all of us and our visitors being subjected to invasive sniffing by police-handled dogs. Although, I welcome dogs to check me out when we meet on equal terms.
