I Don't Find Police/Military Puppies Cute

So I'm going to say it here and now that I feel, deeply of course, that NO animals should be used in law enforcement or military. It's a dangerous and horrific relic of human cruelty toward animals AND other humans. I view it the same as I view underground fighting rings.

When I see stories and pictures of animals wearing police vests or other such like adornments, I'm immediately barraged with photos of humans set upon by trained animals. Many injured; some dead. Different periods of World and US history--yet all the same. Corrupt power structures utilizing animals as weapons terror and war.

You want a recent example?

Look no far back than 1960s in the U.S. when people were marching for their rights. Military and police and their trained dogs, ready to squash down the right to protest or peacably assemble and make their voices heard.

A more recent example than that is Ferguson, MO. The police set the dogs of war (and let's be real here, it IS a war) upon the protesters. In fact, the police and dogs were there--not to keep order in case anything happened--but to incite and ignite conflict--especially when some police went undercover to pretend to be protesters and start shit.

This is pretty much why I'm against the use of animals in law enforcement and military. It's not cute or funny; it's a legacy of training animals to subjugate.
