    ...Allegedly, Stephens - the "animal impersonator" - was making barking noises and hissing at the real thing.

    Walker reported that when he asked the barking Mr. Stephens why he was harassing the canine, he said "the dog started it." The officer also said Stephens appeared highly intoxicated (which is actually reassuring in this case)....

    LOL!! Technically, they DO start it! Every time I have ever been anywhere near a police dog in a car, they've started barking their heads off at me!

    I love them to death, especially since most are GSD and that's my favorite breed. But really.. they start it!

    Too funny! I heard this on the radio on my way in this morning. My nephew lives in Mason and when I heard the city I was hoping it wasn't him! Might be one of his friends tho:)

    Would you say your nephew's bark is worse than his bite?

    Anyone who barks like a dog, at a dog, especially a police dog, is not long for this world.

    From your article;

    ...The legal precedent? Look for one if Stephens argues in court he was verbally harassed by a canine police officer and just extending his rights of free speech to include barking and hissing....

    LOL the rebel in me says me too.

    I love the dogs and what they do. And I understand that fellow officers are rightly protective of them because if upset they don't work well, and they could become dangerous.

    But come on! He was trying to communicate with the dog.

    I wonder what the dog would say on the stand. I guess the first thing the lawyers would have to do is tell him to "speak". :crazy:

    LOL the dog is an officer of the law. The defense attorney probably shouldn't speak to it. After all they are on opposing sides and the dog has been trained to kill.
