University of Oregon police K-9 officer fired

EUGENE, Ore. (AP) -- A University of Oregon police officer and handler of the department’s K-9 was fired after an internal investigation confirmed four allegations of misconduct, including lying and overuse of force.

The Register-Guard reports officer Troy Phillips was terminated from his position Nov. 25 after a man riding a bicycle, who Phillips inappropriately stopped at gunpoint in October 2018, filed notice that he intended to sue the university’s police department.

  1. All K9 officers are liars. They ALL, without exception, train their dogs to have false hits on any one they pull over for “probable cause” to rummage through your car while you sit on the curb.
