Stupidity - The Policeman's Friend
A great asset in the War are our sensitive shnozzed four legged buddies. The problem is that we don't have enough trained dogs to cover our needs either in Iraq or at home.
But in this article on the subject in the Washington Post, an exchange between a passenger and a dog handler on the DC Metro outlines exactly why criminals get caught. They're outrageously stupid.
One man walked by and asked Shieder whether his dog would bite. "No, he sniffs," Shieder said.
"Can he sniff drugs?" the man asked, smiling nervously.
"No, just explosives," Shieder replied.
"Whew, that's good," said the man, who declined to give his name and walked away quickly, clutching his pocket.
