Slim may be your favorite police officer, but not mine. I have never been keen on the idea of my rights being interpreted by human police officers, but a dog, heaven forfend. How do I know what the dog has been trained to do? Can the dog testify in court, and can I address my accuser? "The dog indicated..."; sure it did.

Now, I have never been arrested using a police dog, the concept has always seemed prone to abuse, in my opinion. Using them for tracking suspects in a swamp, if you could limit them to that, seems ideal.

What's funny is that I actually watched Cool Hand Luke last night, and I was gonna go on about tracking through pig farms, over drainage ditches, back and forth over fence lines...but I reckoned folks would get the picture. I was wrong, and I promise to profusely elaborate from now on through the foreseeable future, and right up to the point it becomes the unforeseeable future, which is where I will have to reassess, and perhaps, take a second reckoning.
