They’re not even pretending anymore

Even if the dog has already gotten it wrong twice on the same person, the dog is presumed reliable.  Meaning any cop can search anything they want just by getting their trained animal to “alert” on someone they don’t like.  Meaning anyone.

And by “trained”, I mean trained to please their master, nothing more.

You can’t even introduce evidence that the same dog had gotten it wrong before with the same person and the same truck.

There’s no fourth amendment anymore.  Just a pretense.  Get a dog to sit, get a judge (likely a former prosecutor) to sign a form, or just make up a non-existent CI.  Or claim you smelled marijuana.

More disgraceful, there wasn’t a single dissent.
