Salon reports that a Pennsylvania police dog has been suspended amid allegations of racism. Dolpho, a German shepherd, bit a 14-year-old black girl during a crime-prevention demonstration at a local school on Jan. 28. Two years ago, he was investigated after escaping from a police vehicle and biting a 9-year-old black boy playing nearby.
On the one hand, Dolpho is a German shepherd, and we've come to expect a little racial discrimination from those parts over the years. Hitler's favorite dog Blondi was a German shepherd, too. On the other hand, German shepherds are black themselves, so Dolpho should really know better. Bad dog, Dolpho!
