San Diego Police Dog Attack Injury Claim Settles for $385,000

An entrepreneur visiting San Diego was tripping from a party the night before.

He ended up naked in a ravine!

While this sounds like the beginning of a hilarious story, it is the beginning of a story of a violent attack on an unarmed civilian.

December 12, 2016, NBC LA released a video which shows a horrifying degloving injury.


Here the dog can be seen with a mouth full of blood.



With the major arteries that run through the leg, I have to wonder, did they just want to permanently this person, or did they actually want him dead?

More lawsuits likely?


At this point you would expect someone from the department to inform the public what steps would be implemented to ensure nothing like this EVER happens again. Instead, a statement is released "...While the split second decisions of police officers are easy to second guess when you know the outcome, keep in mind the deployment of our K9 is intended to prevent the situation from escalating...”

Wow.

In 1995, LA settled with 55 dog bite victims.
