Video Shows How Cops Use Unreliable Drug-sniffing Dog To Harass, Arrest And Search A Man’s Vehicle!
A 2011 analysis by the Chicago Tribune has called into question the accuracy of drug-detecting dogs used during roadside traffic stops. After examining three years of data for suburban departments, the Tribune reported that only 44 percent of sniffer dogs’ positive signals led to the actual discovery of drugs or paraphernalia. The Tribune’s analysis also shows that among drug alert roadside traffic stops of Hispanic drivers, the sniffer dogs’ success rate was 27 percent. If the dogs are as unreliable as the Tribune’s analysis suggests, should police departments be allowed to use sniffer dogs to bypass 4th Amendment protections against warrantless searches?
