Cop Dog Attacks Cook In Unwarranted. LIVINGST

LIVINGSTON, MT — A kitchen manager visiting his place of work after hours was mauled by a police attack dog, which was released into the property with the purpose of seeking out and attacking anyone it found. Police defend the actions of the dog, saying “He did what he was supposed to do.”

Mark Demaline manages the kitchen of Park Place Tavern in Livingston, and on August 22, was visiting the business at 2:00 AM, which he often does, to eat before going home. His routine visits are brief, as he makes a quick salad, grabs his laptop, and leaves. He does not lock the door while in the tavern, reported the Livingston Enterprise.

Unbeknownst to Demaline, police had decided to perform a “standard downtown security check,” which involves entering a private business without probable cause or a warrant, snooping around inside and releasing an attack dog to sniff out intruders, without permission from the owner.

Mark had prepared himself a take-home salad and prepared to exit the building, with food and drink in hand. A strange black dog approached him.

Being a dog lover, Demaline greeted the dog, “Hey puppy.” The dog lunged at him and sank its teeth into his leg, gnawing his flesh with repeated bites. Mark dropped everything and began screaming and trying to restrain the attack dog.

Just then two Livingston police officers appeared. The K9 handler, Officer Andrew Emanuel, took control of the dog. Demaline was cuffed and dragged him outside for an interrogation. A phone call confirmed he had permission to be in the building, unlike the police officers and their violent dog.

The property owner was quite upset that he was not called first. “I’ve been in the phone book for 40 years,” said Glenn Godward, incensed that his cook was mauled and his business was intruded upon.

The police chief staunchly defended the warrantless search, as well as the use of the dog. He claimed that police can enter any private property if it is unlocked. Nothing that happened was out of line, according to the chief.

Alot of people in the comments don't seem to care. This is a pretty extreme problem if they get away with it, which they likely will. If this was the norm, police could come into your home, handcuff you, search through all of your belongings, and interrogate you without you having done anything.
This is a direct violation of the fourth amendment and should be treated as such. It's another instance of the state continuing to tread over the Constitution with little to no repercussion.
Furthermore, they released a dog into private property with the intent to have it attack on site. No officer accompanying it, no due course, and absolutely no sympathy. At the very least the officer drove the man to the hospital, but he still had to miss work and incurred medical charges that he will have to pay himself.
Who cares if it's on a radical site, if its a legitimate case, and the facts are straight. I'd love to see an article coming from the other side, but I couldn't find one.

I want to state my opinion about when a persons dog bites someone, the owner has to get their dog put down and could face a very hefty fine.

But when a police dog does it's "Nah its okay It was trained to do so"

But some people would claim that its under two different scenarios and that the dog is specifically trained to do so and such.

To continue my rant, while dogs attacking people (unprovoked of course) is really a terrible thing that a dog could do I don't believe that putting it down should be the go-to solution.

Even in situations that it is a provoked attack, the dog ends up being put down anyway.

I am not saying the police dog should be put down; I am just saying that if the police expect others to put down their dog after an unwarranted attack that perhaps they shouldn't get so offended when they are in the wrong.

This pisses me off so ******* bad. If I were the owner not only would I press charges for unlawful entering of a private business, but I would get the mauling victim and sue the police officer for damages, pain and suffering, and any psychological damage that they inflicted upon him, on top of having the dog euthanized. This is why I ******* hate the police because they can literally get away with murder without a single consequence. Holy ******* **** this kind of stuff pisses me off more than anything.

law suits are the best way to fight the police.

Drain the bank accounts then they wont be paid to patrol.
