    It’s time to take the dogs out of policing

    In video footage The Chronicle obtained of a San Ramon police stop from December 2020, Ali Badr, an Egyptian immigrant and Uber driver, appears to be standing outside his car and slipping on his shoes when an officer releases the dog that tears open his arm. This grisly scene shouldn’t happen in a rational public safety system. Yet Badr’s horrifying experience is far too common in the U.S. and Bay Area, according to the reporting of our colleagues at the Marshall Project, San Jose Mercury News and Oaklandside. It’s long past time law enforcement agencies let go of the lie

    A pair of specially-trained dogs, 14-month-old labs named Huntah and Duke, began their training in May 2021, and now roam the halls of schools in the Freetown-Lakeville Regional School District.
