Elementary Children Subjected To Fake Police Raid, Child Attacked by Police Dog

Children in Indiana were recently subjected to what police and the town of Brazil are calling a “simulated raid”. The purpose was supposedly so that the children could witness police searching people with trained canines. All of this was for the purpose of “drug education,” to “educate” the children on what happens when you have drugs. In this case, “what happens” was a raid of a party, where police searched party-goers without probable cause, in order to look for contraband.

As if this weren’t bad enough in and of itself, things got even uglier when one student was actually attacked by the police canine being used to sniff for simulated “drugs.”

McQueen explained that “a very small amount of illegal drugs were hidden on one of the juveniles to show how the dogs can find even the smallest trace of an illegal substance.” This was done, he explained, “under exclusive control and supervision of members of the court and law enforcement.”

But that “exclusive control and supervision” wasn’t enough. The Brazil Times quoted the police, saying: “As I got closer to the actors, Max began searching the juveniles,” according to the police report. “The first male juvenile began moving his legs around as Max searched him. When the male began moving his legs, (this is what) I believe prompted Max’s action to bite the male juvenile on the left calf.”

“It was an unfortunate accident,” Brazil Chief of Police, Clint McQueen said, “Wish it hadn’t happened like that but it did. We are trying to evaluate (the incident) to make sure nothing like this happens again.”

    They hope nothing like that happens again. it should not have happened in the first place.

    Well, gee, I guess the kids shouldn’t have moved his legs and since it was an “accident” no more should be done, amiright? I hope the parents sue the shit out of the police/county, whatever. This should not be occurring and it is inexcusable.

    Let me preface the following sarcasm with saying that I live in Brazil, IN.

    This sounds just as reasonable as when I beat my wife in front of my children to show them just what happens when people commit domestic violence…wait, that’s absurd and would likely terrify my children and make them afraid of me. You don’t think that’s what they’re doing, do you?
