Brimfield PD (Ohio) - This is the new puppy at training today….we don’t think the bullet proof vest fits….just yet

Cops need to fuck off with this K-9 shit.Dogs are awesome and sweet, stop turning them into tools of oppression and subjugation.

And especially stop using cruelty and abuse* to do it.
*Often called “training” in the industry.

One of the vet’s offices I worked for was the go-to animal clinic for police dogs in the city where I used to live. Every, single one of those dogs was completely out of control and prone to attacking both humans and pets. Their “training” (which we saw examples of multiple times… it often consisted of slapping the dog or “dominance” bullshit) apparently didn’t include an off switch.
In the 3 years I worked for that particular clinic, we had at least 6 fights between K-9 police and other animals and 2 bites because their handlers insisted they had them under control. After the second (serious) bite, we had to require all K-9 officers to be muzzled upon entering the clinic. 
There were at least 2 handlers who actively encouraged their dogs to bark at the cats boarding there through the glass to the cat room. I had to ask one of them 4 times to stop, and he told me he was “just letting the dog have a little fun” and that “it won’t hurt the fucking cats,” before pouting like a child in the waiting room.
Fuck. All. Cops.

These dogs are a mess from start to finish. They’re intentionally bred to be over-the-top and out of control (people like to call it “drive” but a biological drive is different from being constantly over the stimulus threshold all the time). The training makes it even worse, and what you end up with is a majority of K-9 and military dogs that are completely untrustworthy time bombs.

What makes it almost worse is the department we worked with imported GSD/malinois mixes for 20,000 dollars plus per dog. Then, if that dog didn’t “pass” their abusive, nasty training course, they—get this—gave them away to local families for “protection.”
Talk about time bombs. Shit’s unimaginably irresponsible.

reblogging because i’ve seen this image on my dash a lot lately without the commentary on how fucked up police dogs are. 

My parents gave away their dog to the RCMP after I was born. He tried to kill literally the first cop he saw after training and was shot to death.

And don’t forget that the dogs are trained to “hit” on drugs & etc. whenever the handler wants them to.


Another problem for gauging the reliability of canines is the bias of their handlers. In a 2011 study published in Animal Cognition, the sniffing accuracy of 18 trained dogs was tested over two days. The dogs’ handlers had experience in drug and bomb detection. They were falsely told that the scents of drugs and bombs had been planted in rooms of the church where the test took place and that some of these points were marked by a piece of red paper. Recorders, who weren’t told the purpose of the study followed the dogs to write down where they raised an alert. Out of 144 searches, 123—involving 17 of the 18 dogs—raised a false alert. Most strikingly, the handlers were most likely to claim their dogs picked up a nonexistent scent when they saw a piece of red paper.



The researchers concluded that handlers cue their dogs, deliberately or not, and this affects the animals’ accuracy.

    I really appreciate the gentle character you give to balls. All scrotum treated with such not-over-considered loveliness! I guess this is a snug trouser more than scrotum, but it shares grace with others you’ve posted.

    thank you! i feel like nipples and genitals are valuable to conveying character to images of bodies. they react to ideomotor influences in a clearer way than faces do; faces can be consciously controlled to a far greater extent than erectile tissue or mucus membranes. and the breadth of variance across genital shape and configuration is pretty amazing. it’s one of the things I really appreciate about Oglaf; the artist goes out of her way to characterize breasts and genitals across characters.

  • Marquis Samigina

    Gamigin (also Gamygin, Gamigm or Samigina) is a Great Marquis of Hell who rules over thirty legions of demons. He teaches all liberal sciences and gives an account of the souls of those who died in sin and who drowned in the sea, speaking with a rough voice. He also answers what is asked about, and stays with the conjurer until he or she is satisfied.

    Gamigin is depicted as a little horse or a donkey, which changes form into a man under the conjurer’s request.

  • Chivalry in later ages may have had merits, but in the 11th century it was a social disaster. It produced a superfluity of conceited illiterate young men who had no ideals except to ride and hunt and fight, whose only interest in life was violence and the glory they saw in it. They were no good at anything else, and despised any peaceful occupation.

    i also want to note here that this isn’t limited to penises. vulvas also undergo arousal cycles during sleep, up to and including “wet dreams” (unconscious orgasms). presumably for the same reasons.

    I did not know that! Unsurprising, though. Do you know if that includes erectile stuff? It could easily vary from person to person, but it’s clear that at least some of what sex researchers have to say (I.e. with regard to what is and is not “androgen-mediated”) is very questionable.

    im having trouble remembering where i read about this but I believe it was What Do Women Want: Adventures in the Science of Female Desire. But searching the document here isn’t yielding what I thought I read, so it might have been somewhere else.  Googling results in two terms, SRFO (sleep-related female orgasm) and FNO (female nocturnal orgasm) but curiously, not UFO (unconscious female orgasm l m a o). This was apparently a Kinsey study and has been a quiet field of research ever since.  Here’s a slightly annoying webpage about an apparently clinically serious book on the topic.
