‘Can He Sniff Drugs?’

DCist today might have the quote of the day, proving that there’s a reason most criminals get caught: They’re stupid.

The exchange from the Post today:

One man walked by and asked Shieder [a police officer] whether his dog would bite. “No, he sniffs,” Shieder said.

“Can he sniff drugs?” the man asked, smiling nervously.

“No, just explosives,” Shieder replied.

“Whew, that’s good,” said the man, who declined to give his name and walked away quickly, clutching his pocket.
