Study Shows 100% Of Police Dog Bites Are Sustained By Minorities

Via Latino Fox News reports:

The number of Latinos and African-Americans bitten by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department canines have dramatically increased in the past few years, a new study released earlier this week states.

While the annual dog bites for whites, Native Americans and Pacific Islanders remained very low from the years 2004 to 2012, the number of K-9 unit attacks on Latinos and African-Americans rose in the same period.

“In the first six months of this year, 100 percent of the dog bites were of blacks and Latinos,” the report stated, adding that a total of 17 dog bites had been reported up to June, according to the Los Angeles Times.

The number of Hispanics bitten by dogs increased 30 percent, from 30 bites in 2004 to 39 in 2012 ,and the number of African-Americans bitten increased 33 percent for the same time period, from 9 to 12.

The report’s researchers found that the majority of the attacks occurred in neighborhood’s deemed by lawn enforcement to “high-crime” areas and that five sheriff’s stations — Century, Lennox, Compton, Lakewood and City of Industry — had the highest number of bites, more than all the other 21 stations combined.

Let’s face it, racism is a human problem. It’s not something you see in domesticated pets plus dogs are color blind. They can’t differentiate between a white or a black or a Latino. Do you think K-9s are taught to hate on minorities?
