We've got devil dogs...
Last year, during a drugs raid at the house that Shovell — or ‘Shovi’ as he is known — shares with his father, Garfield King, his ‘pet’ attacked not one but two police officers.
Nothing illegal was found at the end-of-terrace in Swanage Walk, but one officer was bitten on the hand, the other on the leg. Even a blast from a Taser stun gun failed to subdue the crazed animal.
In other words, Ratty was a tragedy just waiting to happen....urban street culture...
With his ‘hoodie’ and the peak of his baseball cap perpetually pulled down over his face, Shovell King cut an intimidating figure.
His appearance, though, was not the only reason which made people want to cross the road when they saw the 15-year-old coming towards them. Another was invariably by his side: up to 3st of muscle, teeth and claws masquerading as a family pet — a vicious Staffordshire bull terrier called Ratty....sloppy parenting...
On Sunday, Keiron was being looked after by his grandfather. He was playing outside but wandered into the garden where Ratty the Staffordshire bull terrier was kept....social networking by soulless illiterates...‘
Swear this worlds f*****,’ he declared. ‘If I trespassed on a police dog’s territory I would get attacked and thats what my dog did ’n’ got put down? don’t have kids if you aint supervising them, nuff said.’...benefit culture...
‘Shovi’ King is believed to be the youngest of Garfield King’s offspring. He has at least four other children (Shovi’s half-siblings) by a number of different women. Although a painter and decorator by trade, no one in Swanage Walk, where he has lived for the past decade, can remember him working in recent memory....and finally, the inability of the authorities to do anything about it without wielding the blunt hammer of more legislation that will inevitably catch those no-one intended to in the net.
Crucially, the Sentencing Council is also moving to close a loophole in the law which has prevented dog owners being prosecuted for a dog attack on someone unlawfully if it was on their own property.
It is this ‘loophole’ that prevented any member of the King family from being charged with an offence.Honestly, it's like God went through my Blog labels and decided to arrange an occurrence based on a random selection, isn't it?
With some of these people on here, I think we can take a leaf out of the community action policies of the less fashionable parts of Ireland. When I mean community action I do not mean a 'fun day' finishing with a free Aswad concert. The old Northern Ireland policy with unmarried mother's was to keep them in hospital until the father of the child married them, or until the child was put up for adoption. Less harsh than sending in the nuns but effective.
The effective community action used by both sides of the sectarian divide, was the punishment beating, pick axe handle round the back of the legs, or a round into the kneecap. Quick and effective.
So ladies and gentlemen I commend the Northern Ireland methodology, local solutions, by the local community for local problems.
[I add that I no way condone other issues within Northern Ireland such as sectarian killings and bombings on the mainland, or any attack on UK troops or police officers serving or retired].

Hold on. Am I imagining things here? But I THOUGHT I had seen in the news somewhere in the last few days (week?) where a dog was shot under some law about dog attacks on private property....
I am SURE it was here, Julia....HELP!
Look at the mongrels. These beasts belong in a labour camp.
On the other hand, the entire neighbourhood is going to be a Labour stronghold.
Sew and reap.
Although this is a very sad case, I was left so traumatized after being burgled not once but four (4) times, that I couldn't go outside for some time. I now have a dog, which helps me feel safe in my home. If this 'loophole' is closed will I be charged if I am burgled again and my dog attacks those trying to rob my house?
Off the top of my head, the 1871 Dogs Act works anywhere. The 'new' Dangerous Dogs Act works in public but only in private if the dog is trespassing there.
50% of the participants in this sad little drama, yes.
"With some of these people on here, I think we can take a leaf out of the community action policies of the less fashionable parts of Ireland. "
I think it's going to come to that, and sooner than originally feared.
"Hold on. Am I imagining things here? But I THOUGHT I had seen in the news somewhere in the last few days (week?) where a dog was shot under some law about dog attacks on private property...."
Checking my recent links, I can't find anything. There's this, but it was in relation to offences on public land, and so was this.
"Off the top of my head, the 1871 Dogs Act works anywhere. The 'new' Dangerous Dogs Act works in public but only in private if the dog is trespassing there."
Another case of more recent legislation being not fit for purpose. God knows what the new new one will do.
Hmm. Tazering seems to ring a bell. Some drug dealers dog that got charged for trying to bite a policeman during a drugs raid, or similar?
Na I will search around for it.
