Wow...that's really scary. Chief should have to go through extensive firearms training in an academy setting, not through his own department and not just qualify with his own duty weapon. He should know how to handle and clear just about any weapon. If he can't do so, he should be forced to resign.

The police department's explanation is unacceptable and nothing but an excuse. I have been around law enforcement K9's for years and none of them would ever attack without being given a verbal command to do so. This dog and handler have no business being on the streets if the K9 can not be controlled. Why was the K9 not on a leash? Thank God the child's injuries weren't more severe.
