Please stop calling an incident where a police dog who is still a puppy went after a child's stuffed animal an "attack"! This is irresponsible reporting that negatively reflects on Havertown's worthwhile efforts to incorporate a police dog on the force. If the dog wanted to hurt the child, he would have. Your job is to report the news, not play into the hands of a self-serving commissioner who obviously dislikes dogs.

Elaine is obviously insane, I classify this as an attack and it should be reported as such. We are lucky that the patch, if they were to play into anyones hands and they don't, plays into the hands of the commissioners who don't want the dogs, as we should not have them.

should not have what ? The lunatic commissioner or the K9 ?

MerionManor, you stated before that "I pay over 11K in property taxes here in Havertown". Those are not township taxes are they? Which commissioners didn't want the dog?
MerionManor February 20, 2013 at 02:44 PM
Total property taxes, not complaining about the total I choose to live where I live, simply do not want the K9 unit or some of the other "extras" as of late. If you would watch all the meetings relating to the K9 unit you can determine who's for it and who was not, but its was the same old split.
