What sort of message does it send when the detection dogs are only there for 2 days out of the 5?
And even then they packed-up at Sundown and went home.
Some people would say this adds to the already bad smell of hypocrisy about the whole exercise.

"It would be really interesting to do a FOI request" to find out how many people were arrested over the 3 limited occasions when they were there,
and to see the breakdown of how many dealers were caught, and with what.
And how many arrests were for cannabis possession and with how much?

And what person of good will would begrudge a citizen finding out this sort of information?
If it's such a good thing, those who endorse this would surely not be worried about people knowing the truth,
would they?

I am inclined to support detection of powders and pills, but this flawed exercise needs to have a serious and honest review of it's purpose.
At least to have some little bit of credibility going forward.


Look what some interested person sent me in the post...

India has 30 million stray dogs… 30 million reasons to be afraid.

India has some 30 million stray mutts and more than 20,000 people die of rabies every year. Last year, Global Alliance for Rabies Control reported that India accounted for 35% of human rabies deaths, more than any other country.

Shocking...

Now that two men can finally get married we need to focus on the current hidden civil rights issues and protect the general population from dogs and especially police dogs who are trained to attack human people.

I’m sure the people of these Indian slums and would agree that dogs should be banned from festivals. In fact they would probably think the entire concept of dogs being trained and paid to intimidate concertgoers mindboggling.

The good news is: A parliamentary committee is looking into management of dogs and monkeys in Delhi

Would those posters opposed to the cute pooches be upset if they were bomb sniffing dogs ?

As I discovered,there have been dogs trained to detect bombs at Bluesfest.
The security guard I talked,told me that one was a drug dog and the other a bomb dog.
And here we have one of their tribe members in action.

Could also be used to pursue those who scale fences to avoid paying entry fees.

Just goes to show that the dogs are useless - if there were bomb dogs on site how come they didn’t stop that bloke passenger a few years back?... Many of us are still scarred by that “performance”.
