Re: “Police officer sues sheriff's deputy over dog bite

I believe this is Bullock? First of all get your facts straight. Martin Sokolovic has scammed me along with 3 other people out of a lot of money. Please do some research on him before you try to spread lies just to get the attention off of you and stay on the subject because that is what we are talking about. You made this statement and you know it. Many K-9 trainers in NC suck".
I do not know you and I do not care to meet you either. I have seen you 1 time at the airport where both of us got dogs in several years ago and you called me a "BITCH" because I was looking at your dogs thinking they were my dogs. So I retreated because I will not stoop to your level. You can not argue the things you said. You were interviewed and you made those statements which I DO NOT agree with no matter how much you don't like it. The officer lost control of his K-9 so how can you say the K-9 should target the suspect only??? Have you ever lost control of a dog? Everyone at one point has dropped that lead by accident. So quit trying to say it was bad training and NC trainers suck. I hate it happened but I hate even more that a K-9 trainer would make such statements. Read this again!

"Though impossible to quantify, police dog bites have become a major problem in North Carolina, according to Mike Bullock, a Greenville-based police dog trainer and certifier. "Cops do stupid things. Half the police dog trainers in this state suck," he said. Properly trained dogs should always know who their intended targets are, he says."

Re: “Police officer sues sheriff's deputy over dog bite

"Cops do stupid things. Half the police dog trainers in this state suck," he said. Properly trained dogs should always know who their intended targets are, he says.

That is a very ridiculous statement. When an officer hand cuffs a suspect and the handler looses control of his dog it is very likely that the K-9 will engage in a fight with the first person he gets to.
I can not believe a K9 trainer would make such a ludicrous statement.
It is impossible to comment in this situation and has nothing to do with improper training. It was clearly a handling issue and an accident. We did not see the incident and I do not care how great a K-9 is trained. When a dog is released with other officers around no one can guarantee who and what the dog will bite. So this statement is just pure ridiculous.
