    NFL player faces 3rd degree felony

    ...for barking at a police dog.

    The statute clearly says "willfully or maliciously taunting."

    There should not be a story here. The complaining cop is WAY out of line.

    There MIGHT arguably be some infraction involved with distracting a working* police dog, but there is most certainly nothing premeditated or malicious here to warrant even the discussion of the felony charge. Shame on the cops.

    *This was a "working" police dog, in a location where security screenings were already required, yet conveniently also gave the dog's handler the best seat in the house.

    The operative word "maliciously" is exactly what my brain focused on as well. It's an absurd charge.

    Apparently the cop dog handler is not a Raiders fan, nor is Chief Deputy Kevin Kraus...go figure.

    So they can kill any dog that looks at them, but will prosecute anyone that does anything to their dogs?

    Some animals are more equal.

    rights, due to ignorance." (Paraphrased)
