Default interesting article on police k9s used in drug searches

Legal challenge questions reliability of police dogs | Las Vegas Review-Journal

k9s used in the military to sniff out bombs and enemy threats are actually assets but imo k9's used in civilian settings is nothing more than a loophole to search you. this article applies to s&r dogs too. they can indicate a body when there is none just based on subtle cues by the handler or the handler thinking they are smarter than the dog and know where the body is and subconciously leading the dog in that direction.
