Cops with Drug sniffing dogs destroy car at airport and find......
This is a true story that happened recently to someone we know personally.

The gentleman in question drove his nice car to Hopkins Cleveland International Airport and left it there when he took a short trip to Florida.

While in Florida the Cleveland Police called him with bad news.

While doing a drug sniffing search around cars in the Airport parking lot the drug sniffing dogs freaked out at his car.

This gave the Police enough reason to break a window and let the dogs into the car to see what they might find.

The dogs continued to freak out and ripped up the interior.

No drugs were found.

As a last thought the cops lifted the hood where they found a raccoon who jumped out.

Apparently the raccoon had been hiding out on the engine to keep warm during this awful winter.

The cops met the gentleman at the Airport when he returned and offered to drive him home. They were very apologetic, I don't think they wanted this going public.

But, what the heck, this is the strangest thing I ever heard. I didn't realize they had dogs sniffing the cars at the Airport-- some people might need to know this.

I was surprised they broke the window to get in and let the dogs destroy the car.

Anyways thought it was worth sharing.

The dogs are not supposed to be that stupid. They had to have been poorly trained and I bet a $50 the cops are not going to pay him jack for this damage.

I did a search and could not find a story written on this event--I believe it happened within the last 2 weeks.

It would have made the cops look bad if it had been on the news.

Surprisingly the man was not really upset, and was glad the police were doing their job keeping the Airport safe.

Dogs are not stupid, only handled wrong. I'm guessing the officers with the dogs were not trained or handling it properly.

Apparently they can't do this to your home--

[link to www.cleveland.com]

The Supreme Court ruled Tuesday that police cannot bring drug-sniffing police dogs onto a suspect's property to look for evidence without first getting a warrant for a search,

a decision which may limit how investigators use dogs' sensitive noses to search out drugs, explosives and other items hidden from human sight, sound and smell.

The high court split 5-4 on the decision to uphold the Florida Supreme Court's ruling throwing out evidence seized in the search of Joelis Jardines' Miami-area house. That search was based on an alert by Franky the drug dog from outside the closed front door.

Justice Antonin Scalia said a person has the Fourth Amendment right to be free from the government's gaze inside their home and in the area surrounding it, which is called the curtilage.

"The police cannot, without a warrant based on probable cause, hang around on the lawn or in the side garden, trawling for evidence and perhaps peering into the windows of the home," Justice Antonin Scalia said for the majority. "And the officers here had all four of their feet and all four of their companion's, planted firmly on that curtilage -- the front porch is the classic example of an area intimately associated with the life of the home."

Sometimes they get it right--

VERMILION, Ohio -- Sealed plastic bags, insulation and mustard didn't hide 9 pounds of marijuana from two drug-sniffing dogs.

A package mailed in San Jose, Calif., to a home in Vermilion was intercepted Saturday at Cleveland Hopkins International Airport, where a police dog alerted officers to the smell of marijuana.

Vermilion police were notified and the package was sent to the Vermilion Post Office, where another police dog detected drugs.

Glad you mentioned that. Someone had a You Tube here about an airport security dog. Think it was Canada? Watching them, I wondered too. The dog looked like he was a "for show" dog, to make people think they were doing something. The handler looked the same. A good working K 9 and partner are tuned in to each other and you can see it. That dog and handler weren't.

Doubt the dog was stupid, but seriously doubt that he or the handler were very well trained.

The dogs don't rip up seats. Their nails are trimmed short to prevent excessive mauling; teeth are enough.

I've witnessed dogs searching cars. They paw at seats if they smell something, then look over to the handler, who then cuts open the cushions.

There's a great video on youtube by an ex cop called never get busted again.

One of the things he said was a dog's brain can seperate smells. Like when we smell stew cooking a dog smells all the ingredients of the stew.

It doesn't take more than a couple molecules for a dog to pick up scent. Nothing is sealed well enough to keep a well trained dog from finding it. Even glass has tiny pores that allow scent thru.
