We are now running on a new, and hopefully much-improved, server. In addition we are also on new forum software. Any move entails a lot of technical details and I suspect we will encounter a few issues as the new server goes live. Please be patient with us. It will be worth it! :)
Please help by posting all issues here.
The forum will be down for about an hour this weekend for maintenance. I apologize for the inconvenience.
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.
