WOWO

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO): Police officers and K9s from across America will be in Fort Wayne next week, but don’t be alarmed — they’re coming for a workshop, not an investigation.

  1. They’ve even turned dogs into criminals.

    Every week in our local small town paper “Los Lobos” makes another drug bust.

    Sheriff’s office even talked about training with some dept.(sheriff’s) in Georgia on how to do bust’s and then with the asset forfeiture monies buy equipment for our local sheriffs.

    Hey, this is big business!

    Maddening.

  2. “More than 150 police officers and 100 police dogs are coming to Fort Wayne for the 2016 North America Police Work Dog Association National Workshop next week,…”

    And you can bet the farm there won’t be a single Islamic ‘terrorist’ in sight.

    They’re never around when you REALLY need them!
