Utah police employ "porn-sniffing" dog

It makes perfect sense. Who better to sniff out pussy than a dog?


#3

his highly sensitive nose has been trained to detect the unique chemical compounds found in the certain electronic components

“I give up.”


#4

If the videotape left in the VCR a friend loaned me umpteen years ago is anything to go by, there’s a veritable plethora of phallii as well.


#5

“porn-sniffing”


#6

Porn dogs sniffing the wind, sniffing the wind for something new
Porn dogs sniffing the wind for something violent for me & you


#7

And a profusion of penises, a cornucopia of cocks, and a wealth of willies, I believe.


#8

Fucking stupid.


#9

Nice to see someone’s finally putting that vastly misunderstood breed, the horn dog, to good use.


#10

They used one of those to bring down Subway’s Jared.


#11

Did anyone tell Utah fuzz that there’s free porn on the internet, and they don’t have to go to these lengths to get their rocks off? They can even get it pre-bubbled.

Hmm… yes, I’m so certain those compounds are found only in memory cards and devices. I suspect that this dog may be another “search justification” dog.

To be fair, the dog might have a similar reaction to being told you can tell the difference between orange and pink, or a Monet and a Picasso.

Be as cynical as you want about the humans involved, but the idea that a dog could tell the difference between one kind of electrical/plastic smell and another is not at all farfetched. No human has ever been as good at anything as the average dog is at smelling things.


#14

I thought they used a dog that was specially trained to sniff out Subway’s Veggie Delite subs, a banquet to celebrate your healthy lifestyle, stuffed full of delicious cool, crisp vegetables.


#15

Leads with child porn and terrorism. That’s it, brains off!

This is truly pathetic. They can’t make it more than two sentences without contradicting themselves.

I always wonder, when they make this kind of announcement do they think we’re all going “Yay! A new way to search us! Huzzah!” Oh right, they think we’re all idiots.


#16

:question:


#17

OK, let’s say the dog detects a USB device. How is that cause to stop a person and search said device? Are people who like portable storage now automatically suspect?


#18

In theory, it shouldn’t be (though I wouldn’t be surprised if they tried).

What this could be used for is to help execute a search warrant looking for hidden electronics.


#19

I like the optimist in you but the cynic in me can’t see this dog being used for legitimate police work all that often if it’s only for warrant searches.

Hey, Horn Dog has been put to plenty of good uses.
