The cops literally planted drugs on a fifth grader during a school event, then the kid was attacked by a drug dog.
Police perform "simulated drug raid" on 5th graders; child attacked by police dog | Police State USA
With the goal of “educating the Clay County fifth-graders on drug awareness,” police crashed into a simulated party to search the attendees for narcotics. The children involved were told to hold very still while they were searched by police and their K-9.
Brazil Police Chief Clint McQueen revealed that police deliberately planted drugs on an 11-year-old boy in order to make the raid appear more realistic. According to the Brazil Times:
McQueen said a very small amount of illegal drugs were hidden on one of the juveniles to show how the dogs can find even the smallest trace of an illegal substance. He added all this was done “under exclusive control and supervision of members of the court and law enforcement.”
Dog handler, Ray Walters, issued a report that described the event that resulted in his dog attacking the 5th grader’s leg.
“As I got closer to the actors, Max [the dog] began searching the juveniles,” wrote Walters. “The first male juvenile began moving his legs around as Max searched him. When the male began moving his legs, (this is what) I believe prompted Max’s action to bite the male juvenile on the left calf.”
The unnamed boy was transported by ambulance to St. Vincent Clay Hospital for puncture wounds on his leg from where the police K-9′s fangs had ripped his skin open.
“It wasn’t the dog’s fault and it wasn’t the kid’s fault. But my gosh the kid is gonna carry those memories for a long time,” Clay County resident Ron Pell said.
If this show of incompetence wasn’t enough, police went forward with one last drill as the young boy was being carted away in an ambulance. There were 4 “scenarios” carried out that day.
What was pitched as a “drug awareness” event was in reality more of a “police state conditioning” drill. Young, impressionable kids were subjected to witness first-hand one of America’s most offensive policies: cops crashing into private parties to arrest citizens for possessing a plant or a substance without permission. The kids were being conditioned to accept that getting searched by police dogs without cause is normal behavior that should be supported.
