Probable cause on four legs': How one police force's K-9 Karma INCORRECTLY 'sniffed' drugs at 100% of traffic stops - letting cops
Karma, a K-9 in Republic, Washington, would give the signal for drugs every time

But he was often giving the signal regardless of whether drugs were present

Sniffer dogs give officers probable cause to make arrests and seize vehicles.

This has led to people being jailed, despite not having anything illegal in their car.

A drug sniffing police dog in Washington indicated narcotics were inside 100 percent of the vehicles it sniffed, but police found drugs in just 29 percent of them.

Karma, a K-9 with the since-dissolved Republic Police Department operating near Washington state's border with Canada, would give the signal to police officers that every vehicle he sniffed was carrying drugs.

The signal - Karma sitting down when his police handler pointed to a vehicle's rear panel with the palm of their hand - would be given regardless of whether the driver possessed illegal narcotics or not.....'
