A woman named Desiree Collins of St. Paul Minnesota was brutally attacked by police K9 while the officers watched momentarily before pulling the dog off.
The attack was unprovoked and the response she got was you were in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Before she could get away from the dog, the animal clamped down on her right arm and would not let go.
The officers claimed they gave the dog multiple commands to let go but you will have to watch the video and judge for yourself. (No commands were given) A trained Canine would have let go on command.
Collins is filing a suit in federal court against the department for damages stemming from the incident, stating that the officer’s leash on the dog was not only too long but he was not in proper view of the officer nor was there any warning that the dog would be rounding the corner.
“The entire incident is shocking and unacceptable,” said Andrew Noel, one of her attorneys. “The video speaks for itself–she was terrified.”
Footage from police body cameras of the Sept. 23 incident, obtained by Noel and Attorney Bob Bennett, shows several officers apologizing to Collins after the incident..
The police have since taken responsibility for their actions and the incident.
