Police Dogs To Wear Booties For Muslims

From the UK’s Times:

Sniffer dogs to wear ‘Muslim’ bootees

Stuart MacDonald

July 6, 2008

Police sniffer dogs will have to wear bootees when searching the homes of Muslims so as not to cause offence.

Guidelines being drawn up by the Association of Chief Police Officers (Acpo) urge awareness of religious sensitivities when using dogs to search for drugs and explosives. The guidelines, to be published this year, were designed to cover mosques but have been extended to include other buildings.

Where Muslims object, officers will be obliged to use sniffer dogs only in exceptional cases. Where dogs are used, they will have to wear bootees with rubber soles.

We are trying to ensure that police forces are aware of sensitivities that people can have with the dogs to make sure they are not going against any religious or cultural element within people’s homes. It is being addressed and forces are working towards doing it,” Acpo said…

Caroline Kisko, of the Kennel Club, said: “We would not condone any attempt to make search dogs wear special clothing, which could cause them distress.”

It’s hard to see how this would ever be a problem.

Why would the police ever need to use a dog to check for drugs or explosives around Muslims?

    Whenever I have to use a shop owned by a muslim I always take my dog, which is big and hairy.

      Rubber soles with pork-rind uppers!!!!

      Why are we kissing up to these vermin. I don’t seem to recall any of the PC bunch getting their panties in a bunch over “Piss Christ” or any of the other crap that mocks Judaism or Christianity.

      Maybe Hasan complained of the dogs routinely used on military bases. A new measure to prevent Hasan “incidents”.

      This will confuse the highly trained dogs. Just use them in muslim areas as dogs don’t like paw nails messed with. They will show irrated hit signs, whines, tail gestures, which will lead to

      tearing up muslim and mosque walls, pulling up carpets, bringing down ceilings. I’m all for it. ;)

  2. I would so totally be the coolest police chief there.. My Drug sniffing pigs would find all the bad guys’ stash.

    And if they objected I would put special TAP shoes on them.

      My Special Forces Pigs will have IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) upon entering “Magic Carpet” parking areas.

    Adding my voice 13 Charges of murder should be 14 charges of Murder. Who is going to speak up for Baby Velez? 12 Soldiers 1 civilian and one unborn baby. That’s 14 counts.
