A police dog tears apart an unarmed black man’s face while officers watch.
Bertus, a K-9 unit of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, watches over the festivities near Super Bowl Village in Indianapolis, Friday, Feb. 3, 2012.
Policing in this country really seems to be going to the dogs. Yes, that’s a silly euphemism, at least unless you live in Vineland, New Jersey. A video filmed a week ago Tuesday appears to show local police allowing a K9 dog to tear into the face of what looks to be an unarmed black man while he is curled up on the ground.
The man, identified as 32-year-old Phillip White, later died while in police custody.
The police were responding to a report of a disorderly person, who was “screaming and yelling,” according to a local television station with access to the police radio transmissions of the incident. Multiple officers arrived on the scene and requested backup, yelling as they allege White reaches for one of their weapons. Moments later, one of them reports, “Slow units down. Subject under apprehension. Tried disarming me.”
