The #UnConstitutional Use of #PoliceDogs
Police Dogs, when used in public places, to "search the air around people, place, or things" literally requires the #SearchWarrant required by The Constitution for The United States of America, Amendment 4. This action is a #GeneralSerach by government officers, of which the police dog is one.
The dog, is the #witness and must be called to the stand to testify, as per #Amendment6 of the US Constitution. Just as the #PoliceOfficerHander cannot testify for any human witness -- nor can that dog-handler #Lawfully testify for any other witness; including the dog.
One #US #SS officer claimed that the "impeccable track-record" of his dog was good enough to be admitted into evidence in all future cases. That would be the same as admitting the honest track-record of a police officer as evidence who was caught and/or accused of committing a crime.
The #TrackRecord speaks only of past conduct. It is not reliable for present or future conduct. We know this as fact, because there are many education, medical, police, government, parents, and others who live relatively pristine lives, and then, in a moment of weakness, the assault (sometimes #sexually, sometimes otherwise) the people with whom they were entrusted.
The Constitutional Use for police dogs would work in this manner:
Aside from that, the Constitution must be amended to allow for the use of #NonHuman government officers.
The #PeoplesRights are unlimited with respect to what we can claim as a right. Our rights are limited with responsibility regarding to what extent we may honorably exercise a desired right.
#GovernmentPowers are expressly limited to those the people specifically grant to that government. If a new tool or weapon becomes available for possible use by government, it must be amended into the US Constitution to allow government to use that new tool or weapon.
The people may not want our governments to use certain tools.
