Eighteen Months Sentence; or ‘Ear and a Half?

While looking at the article on the dog attacked by idiots, I found this: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/new...s-suing-police-after-dog-bit-off-his-ear.html

Leon Reid, 31, was left screaming in pain after the dog attacked him, but the ear was packed in ice and sewn back on later in hospital.
The jobless burglary suspect appeared in court charged with burglary with a large white bandage over his right ear.
He was asked if he could hear properly from the dock. "Just about," he responded.
According to The Sun newspaper, Reid, from New Cross, South East London, is now considering suing the Metropolitan Police.
He would most likely qualify for legal aid and could get up to £50,000 in compensation.
A police source suggested the dog may have acted inappropriately.
"Dogs are trained to go for arms. But when he ran, the dog felled him and went for his ear," he told The Sun.
Reid was arrested after a series of burglaries in the area and spent four days in hospital before being brought before the courts.
Police were called when a man was seen acting suspiciously in a back garden on Saturday night.
A helicopter tracked the man along with police officers on foot with dogs and Reid was arrested in the grounds of Haberdashers' Aske's Hatcham College in New Cross.
His steps were retraced through five gardens and a rucksack was found filled with property believed to be stolen.
Greenwich magistrates remanded him in custody to next appear in court on August 20.

Personally, I would put this dog on extra victuals; as a reward. I’m assured by my politically correct girlfiend, though, that the scally is right to sue the Police! I suppose if the woof scuff had swallowed his ear, the poor sod would have been put down.
Pity the dog didn't bite off his meat & two veg, would have stopped him procreating more generations of theiving bastards :twisted:
The Police dog probably got a 'bit' confused :lol: :lol:

The guy must've had his arms protecting his face and head --pity
he had his ears sticking out .

Sue the dog :lol:

Yes, that’s right mate. MOD training is to teach the dog to go for the suspect’s ear first! As the plod shouts "police, dog stop!" then the dog goes into high tempo mode, and talks him to the ground. While having a friendly word in his shell, (no ear). my heart bleads for him.

Talking about this in the pub last night, I was assured, by one who seemed to know, that the dog would have been put down had he swallowed the ear fragment.
I suppose it would be a bad thing to have a police dog with a taste for human flesh
