Dogs and Tasers used to break up student party

Police in Middletown, Conn. used dogs and tasers to break up an year-end party involving Wesleyan University students.

Alison Go at USNewssummarizes the story. She notes reports that a student was sent to hospital for treatment of multiple dog bites. The students are accusing the police of using excessive force.

I agree with the students. There is no need for the use of tasers and attack dogs to disperse a crowd of students. The use of tasers and attack dogs in a crowd control situation by police shows very poor judgement and a lack of training. Senior officers in the force should be held accountable for that.
