A Dog in the UK Was Accused of a Hate Crime Because it Took a Poop on Someone's Doorstep

Newshub

A dog in the UK has been accused of a hate crime, it has been revealed.

The suspect in question has been accused of pooing on a doorstep in what is said by the victim to be a racially motivated attack.

The police log read “an unknown dog has fouled outside of victim address and victim perceived this to be a racial incident,” the Mail on Sunday reports.

The revelation came to public attention thanks to the release of 2500 incident reports by the Metropolitan Police.

Current legislation sees police record any allegation motivated by prejudice as a hate incident. This has led to records of a bus driver giving “a racist look”, and a person who “recently found a dead rat in garden and perceives this incident to be racist”. Dogs are apparently also capable of hate crimes – as well as the dog poo debacle, another report claims that “suspect’s dog barking at victim”.

I mean this is an entire episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm. Larry has a dog named Sheriff and according to Wanda Sykes it hates black people because it barked at her. Now someone in the UK is accusing a dog of the same thing because it took a dump on a doorstep? How in the world is that a hate crime? We’re really calling a dog racist for shitting on your door step? The person who submitted this to the police must be a real blast at parties. I feel like the venn diagram of people who call the police over this and people who complained to their teacher because the rest of their group wasn’t pulling their weight during a group project intersect. I know those two have absolutely nothing in common whatsoever, but at the same time it makes sense in my brain. In case you were wondering, the police weren’t thrilled about having to do a police report on a racist dog.

David Davies, a former special constable and current Tory MP, told Metro that reporting such incidents is “a waste of police time.”

“People need to start thinking more carefully before they call the police.”

Throwback to when Michael Scott threw a watermelon on Stanley’s car and had Dwight call a lawyer to see if he dealt with hate crimes. Such an incredible scene.
