The officer made very bad judgement. The man was already with his hands up. There was already other officers at the scene but instead of standing back or waiting to assess the situation he kept moving forward to him with his dog. Instead of putting his dog back into the vehicle or letting another officer deal with the arrestee he wanted to take matters into his own hands. Yes he could not control his own dog, and so the dog went after another officer instead of being put into a stay or leave it. I have trained with law enforcement before many times. But This officer reminds me of a common attitude I have seen on some officers. In my opinion some officers give me the impression that they care more about getting a “live bite” or scaring the shit out of a guy than ethical patrolling. I think if he had the right “attitude” all of this could have been prevented.
