Serial Burglar attacks LRPD police dog (HILARIOUS VIDEO at source URL)
Fox 16 (AR) ^ | 08 MAY 09 | David Goins

Posted on 05/08/2009 12:43:00 PM PDT by DCBryan1

Little Rock Police think they've solved a string of burglaries across the city. All of them, detectives say committed by the same man, who as he was arrested, tried to poke out the eyes of a police dog.

Limping his way out of the Little Rock Police Department, detectives say Russell Brewer, 39, of Greenbrier is responsible for over 40 business burglaries, including ten Wednesday night and early Thursday morning. Lieutenant Terry Hastings says it ended inside Cruse Uniforms at 1201 South Barrow where he fought with officers and police canine Xanthro.

"Mr. Brewer decided he was going to try and poke the eyes of our canine dog out. The dog did not appreciate that and the dog did bite him severely," Hastings says.

Which explained the visible cuts and bandages on brewer as he was walked to a waiting squad car on his way to the Pulaski County Regional Detention Center.

Detectives say brewer hit places from a Karate gym to a medical supply store on Rodney Parham, stealing a gun.

Police say Brewer also broke into Andy’s Restaurant at 124 S. Barrow after the business closed. He didn't get anything at that location but when employees came to open up the store Thursday morning they'd found that, for whatever reason, he'd left behind a pair of pants in the bathroom.

"We probably don't know the amount of burglaries this individual has committed," Hastings says.

This is not the first go-round for Brewer. He was convicted in a dozen robberies in July 2008 and additional burglaries in October 2008. A judge didn't give him jail time for either convictions.

"It's very frustrating for us when we catch him and get him in the system and then he gets five years probation," Hastings says.

Police say Brewer is an example of multiple property crimes committed by just one burglar.

"We hope this time we send him to prison for a long time," Hastings says.

Police canine Xanthro received a cut below the eye in the attack and is being treated by a veterinarian.

Detectives also believe Brewer is responsible for a dozen burglaries in the Scott Hamilton and 65th Street area earlier this week.

He makes his first appearance in district court Friday morning.

That way that burglar limped out of the hospital, that police dog must have went off on him like he was a bucket of Kentucky Fried Chicken.

My 83 lb.+ half Pit, half Black Lab sleeps with me at night. He just might do something like that to anybody who broke in to my house while I’m there. Of course, Mr. Beretta, who also lives here, might do something, too.

We're my home or business hit by this POS and I had to shoot him or worse he got away......I'd sue the POS Judge in civil court.

The video of the perp going "OOOOWWWWWW" is IMHO better than the "dont taze me bro" "AAAAIIGGHHH"!

I’m betting the police was saying “K9” Unit dog and the reporter was too slow to pick it up.

Given that half the time they failed to capitalize perp’s name (”brewer”), that’s not surprising.

German Shepherd PING

favorite line:
“..The dog did not appreciate that.” That dude was messed up.

I have a German Shepherd....he wouldn’t “appreciate” that either.

typically, states put laws in place to protect PD’s from service dog related injuries ....if that dude really tried to fight the dog...he’ll have no case.

No doubt. But, if she’s like mine, she’s a teribly silly dog who’s totally self-assertive and totally self-confident. I also suspect she believes each of her humans was placed on the earth to be her personal dog toy.

(GRIN!) I did relate that report to my German Shepherd Dog. My dog did appreciate their dog’s sense of humor and we are laughing our collective arses off! HELL FUNNY!

I know I’m replying late, but I have been trying to change hi speed internet providers ever since my last post. I just wanted to mention that my dog doesn’t sound much like yours. She’s more serious than silly, though she occasionally gets some kind of dog high and really, REALLY wants to play wild and rough. She acted more puppyish until I got a second, smaller dog, after which my half-pit half-lab comported herself with massive dignity. She’s not demanding, though she loves to be walked and played with. Interesting that two such similarly bred dogs [i.e.: yours and mine] could be so different. What I love most about Mischa is her protective attitude. I feel sorry for anybody who tries to pull a fast one on me when she’s around. She has teeth strong enough to bite through regular tin cans [i.e.: not those lightweight aluminum ones]. She’s tres formidable. :)

Of all things, Ulysses is not a creature of "massive dignity." Rather, he's a bounding, silly, slobbbery animal, for whom I have created a neologism, "fupus," to describe his basic nature.
