A police force had to pay £2,000 in compensation to a car thief after he was bitten by a police dog while in the middle of a break-in.

The unnamed man was injured when he tried to flee after being confronted by a dog handler while breaking into a vehicle in the Meadows area of Nottingham.

It is believed he spent several days in hospital.

The payout came to light following a Freedom of Information request regarding people who had sued Nottinghamshire Police over dog bites in the past three years.

Wasn't the police dog doing its job???

I mean that's like the criminal suing the homeowner because he fell inside the home he was robbing. :rolleyes:

it's SLIGHTLY possible that that dog slipped it's handler and attacked without instruction, so like the owner of any dog that did that the Police were liable.

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

It doesn't seem so in this case but I agree it is possible and the police not being able to discuss the circumstances makes it seem even more suspect .

No, Britain has.

I'm afraid after being ruled by a Lefty Liberal establishment since the 1960s British law is now firmly on the side of the criminal, not the victim.
