Regarding your post "Bad Cop / No Donut", here's what the media left out. Officer Kratzenberg was off duty and was exercising her dogs. They were all on lead. The other people's dogs were OFF LEAD!!! They ran up and started the incident. Officer Kratzenberg was pulled to the ground, had torn ligaments and her shoulder displaced in the incident. She did not 'flee the scene' but rather took her dogs and herself to safety as she was very injured. Finally, her dogs are not pit bulls. This is a case of the victim being persecuted. Very sad indeed, especially when one knows the truth about this outstanding officer who always lends a hand, especially to homeless or hungry dogs. Good cop. We'll make you a donut!
i assumed that she must have been off duty as the victims did not report the "fleeing" owner of the dogs to be a uniformed police officer.
how many dogs was she exercising? how many dogs does she own? did she report the incident? how was she able to control THREE powerful dogs with a "displaced" shoulder and torn ligaments?
well, after days of NO response (what a surprise), i decided to do a little research. while i didn't find any updates regarding the NINE charges against the duqusenecop, i did find other interesting info, like the fact that she was a student at DR SCOT E DOWD'S Pit Bull University.
i am guessing that MARCIA did not graduate.
a year and half later, she joined the cane corso forum to research the breed in hopes of getting one and making it her K9 partner. a year later MARCIA acquired her first cane corso, from none other than.... BELLA ROSA CANE CORSOS a.k.a VIRGINIA DUNN. another year later, i found her introducing herself and her dogs (cane corsos, ambulls, pit bull and amstaff) on pitbull-chat.
here is MARCIA and some of her dogs, ambull, pit bull, staffy bull. you can see her with cane corsos on her myspace page (bred by none other than virginia dunn!).
you can see more of MARCIA and her dogs and her tattoos here.
i decided that i should look into VIRGINIA DUNN, a breeder of cane corsos in portland oregon.

i found this interesting interview with a cane corso breeder on dogguide.net.
the first question, "How long have you been working with the breed?"
DUNN'S answer, "Well, I rescued dogs for years, my boys and I. Mostly Pit Bulls. We truly love Pit Bulls! But knowing that only 1 in every 600 Pits that need homes will ever get one, and looking at the reality of the Pit situation really started getting me down. Don’t get me wrong. I will ALWAYS help the pits. But sometimes it just gets so overwhelming. I guess I just needed a break from rescue. That’s when the Cane Corso came into my life. It’s been a blessing to me."
i would never trust a breeder who answers questions about their breed with ramblings about another breed!
on VIRGINIA DUNN'S breeder website Bella Rosa, she devotes a section to CORSO COPS, with none other than MARCIA KRAZTENBERG posing in uniform with an adult and a cane corso puppy. "This beautiful girl is a K-9 in Pennsylvania. Hannah loves being on patrol, doing drug searches, helping frightened children fee safe." i can not imagine that a police department would have this K-9 on their staff that did not go through the proper police dog training. in fact, i am officially calling shenanigans on these two nutters. i googled 'cane corso police dogs' and i found some interesting links and they don't exactly help the nutters.
first up, K-9 Selene. "She's just the third of her breed to serve as a police dog outside of Italy. One is currently working in Beechdown, Ohio; the other, in Hoopeston, Ill." there's some other interesting b.s. in the link, i'll let you find it while i stay on task. although i'd really like to know why the police chief INSISTED that Selene be spayed and that resulted in the termination of her K-9 handler. i am under the impression that ALL K-9s are intact.
second up, K-9 Guido, the first corso cop in the U.S. check out these first three photos as the decoy shows how Guido has bruised his arm through the bite sleeve.
third, one more site that mentions there are only 3 cane corso police dogs outside of italy.
okay, where is all of this going....
the use of cane corsos in police work is extremely rare and NONE OF THESE 3 DOGS ARE IN PENNSYLVANIA!
taking a dog's photo in or near a police cruiser does not make it a police dog, unless of course you are a pit nutter and photos are absolute PROOF of police dogs, nanny dogs and the man in the moon.
VIRGINIA, I FOUND THE PIT BULL!
liars, the whole lot of them.
