Nope...I couldn't believe the headline either.
Then again, most dogs have a keen sense.

'Racist' LA police dogs only bite Latinos and African-Americans

by Tim Walker

Police officers in Los Angeles have long faced accusations of institutional racism, but now it appears their dogs may be unjustly discriminatory, too.

A new report focusing on the Canine Special Detail of the LA Sherriff’s Department (LASD) has uncovered a vast increase in the number of minority individuals bitten by police dogs since 2004.

And in the first six months of this year, every single victim of a bite by a LASD dog was African-American or Latino.The data was published in a new report by the Police
Assessment Resource Centre (Parc), a Los Angeles-based non-profit organisation, devoted to “advancing effective and accountable policing”.

According to Parc records, the number of Latino individuals bitten by LASD canines went up 30 per cent between 2004 and 2012, from 30 to 39 bites. The number of African-Americans bitten increased by 33 per cent over the same period.

Meanwhile, police dog bites caused injuries at a much higher rate than alternative deterrents such as batons, tear gas and even guns.“Large swathes of LASD’s jurisdiction, encompassing generally affluent areas with smaller minority populations, had few [canine] deployments or bites,” the Parc report states.

“Crime rates are lower in these areas, but the stark disparity leads us to wonder why canine deployments seem to occur disproportionately in less affluent areas with larger minority populations.” During the period covered in the report, the largely black or Latino areas of Century, City of Industry, Compton, Lakewood and South LA/Lennox suffered more dog bites than all of LASD’s other 21 districts combined....

It's simple really when you patrol in thugville naturally your going to have to deploy the dog more than say Malibu or Beverly hills. A dog is trained to respond to violent behavior and as such the thugs have only themselves to blame.

That's pretending the boys in blue with guns and dogs who wolf pack ain't thugs themselves.

If you look at the numbers world wide Whites are the minority compared to those of darker skin color.

Whites have long lead the world in bringing moral peace to violent immoral people from the from the Empire of Rome to the Empire of British colonies who brought peace and also brought the Gospel according to the Great Commission.

These people react violently just as physical and spiritual darkness will always react violently to light.

The dogs are only biting people who have no self control or self discipline. Those that are obedient to the laws of man and the laws of God will not be hurt.
