Are police dog bites more severe the more a suspect struggles? Would the dog stop biting if the suspect was lying down motionless?
I am always been curious about the police dog and had an encounter where there was a drug dealer who got caught by the dog.
There is no definitive answer to this question as the severity of a police dog bite can depend on a number of factors, including the size and weight of the suspect, the breed of dog involved, and the amount of force used by the dog. In general, however, the more a suspect struggles, the greater the risk of suffering a severe bite.
It is possible that the dog would stop biting if the suspect was lying down motionless, but this is not guaranteed. The dog may continue to bite if it perceives the suspect to be a threat.
