Teen Chased And Bitten By A Police Dog
A 15-year-old boy was taken to hospital after being bitten by a police dog.
Quaid Gayle was among a group of teenagers who ran off when approached by police in Aspley.
The dog gave chase and grabbed the youth's arm. Police say the bite was made worse because the boy ran away from officers instead of staying put.
But neighbours in Tunstall Crescent, where the incident took place, claim it was unprovoked.
They say the boy had done nothing wrong and the dog, which was off its leash, was acting "out of control".
One neighbour, who asked not to be named, said: "
The police were just standing there as the boy got bit. The dog got both his arms and his back. It was very nasty.
"The police were looking round for about 20 minutes before the dog came. Whoever they were looking for had obviously already run off."
Police confirmed they were investigating a car crime when they came across the teenagers. The dog approached them, but the group scattered in different directions. The dog, trained to chase anyone who runs away, started pursuing a youth.
Police said officers called for him to stop running, which would have caused the dog to stop. But he ignored the pleas. The dog caught him, and, as trained, took him down by biting his arm.
The teenager fought back and was bitten several times. He was treated at the Queen's Medical Centre.
A police spokesman said: "It appears that this was an unfortunate incident. As a matter of course, all accidental bites are investigated. If any further action is required, it will be decided at a later date"
Dub ass don't run from the Police and don't fight with a dog.

I love the bystandard comments. Another example of how everyone knows our job better than we do.

Once again, someone who had no lawful right to resist officers is injured and the blame is put on the police (dog in this case). This kid will undoubtedly be portrayed as a 'Boy Scout' that helps little old ladies across the street.
When will people realize they should not resist law enforcement? Too bad the dog didn't take a big chunk out of his ass.
Sad part is, the kid will probably get a lawyer, the department will settle a nuisance suit, and the kid will be able to afford a better car than the one he was trying to steal.'The Art of War' teaches us to "Rely not on the likelihood of the enemy's coming, but on our own readiness to receive him"--Sun Tsu
