(Reuters) - Two dogs, a chocolate Labrador retriever named Franky and a German shepherd named Aldo, should have their day at the U.S. Supreme Court.
The court is scheduled on Wednesday to hear Florida's appeal of two decisions by that state's highest court that found the detection of drugs by trained police dogs had violated the constitutional ban on unreasonable searches and seizures under the Fourth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.
These arguments involve distinctly different issues: whether a dog can sniff outside a home without a warrant, and how qualified a dog must be to do a legitimate sniff.
They give the Supreme Court a chance to extend, or limit, prior decisions giving police a long leash to use dogs, including for suitcases at airports and cars stopped at checkpoints.MORE about the invasion of your privacy.
Remember, the police dog is never your friend. Ever. The police dog is the policeman's friend, get it? If you have a reason to be in contact with a police dog, circumstances are not in your favor.
While it may have once been a cute puppy and while it's not the dog's fault he's a police dog, he is still your enemy. If one is coming towards you that means it's attacking you. Kill it. Kill it first then engage your other targets. Do not hestitate, kill the damned dog before it fucks you up.
