A new report focusing on the Canine Special Detail of the LA Sheriff’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.
Oh oh! Wait, wasn’t there a film about that?
But I digress. Who is raising this as an issue?
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” .
Ah. Of course. The usual race-mongers and grievance industry shills…
“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.”
Gosh! Maybe it’s what they call a….’clue’?
