British Police Dogs to Wear "Boots" When Searching the Homes of... Guess Who?

Posted at Eye On The World.

More preemptive liberalism in the U.K. I'm continually shocked by how the British can take political correctness to new heights. Why are the British so concerned about offending Muslims? Islam is the Religion of Peace™. It's not like Muslims would use terrorism or threats of violence to advance an agenda. Preposterous.

Times Online: Sniffer dogs to wear ‘Muslim’ bootees
Police sniffer dogs will have to wear bootees when searching the homes of Muslims so as not to cause offence.

Guidelines being drawn up by the Association of Chief Police Officers (Acpo) urge awareness of religious sensitivities when using dogs to search for drugs and explosives [Why would a Muslim have drugs or explosives?-ed]. The guidelines, to be published this year, were designed to cover mosques but have been extended to include other buildings.

Where Muslims object, officers will be obliged to use sniffer dogs only in exceptional cases. Where dogs are used, they will have to wear bootees with rubber soles. “We are trying to ensure that police forces are aware of sensitivities that people can have with the dogs to make sure they are not going against any religious or cultural element within people’s homes. It is being addressed and forces are working towards doing it,” Acpo said.

So will dogs have to wear yarmulkes when they go to Jews' houses? How about sticking crosses around their necks for when they sniff around Christian homes?
