The Little Rock Police Department reports that one of its K-9 "officers" a dog known as Ammo, has been restricted to home quarters in Alexander after escaping his pen and biting two neighbors. The report:

On 8-4-14 our agency was notified by Saline County that one of our K-9 officers was able to escape his pin, jump the six foot privacy fence, go across the street and bite two neighbors. At least one of the victims was transported to St. Vincent’s Hospital for his injuries. The K-9 bite is being treated as a vicious dog bite by Saline County. The K-9 is at home but cannot report to work for 10 days under Saline County vicious dog ordinance.

The K-9 handler [Jason Harris, according to Saline County authorities] was not at home at the time of the incident. Emergency personnel responded to the residence where they located the K-9 in his driveway.

The K-9, Ammo, has been with the department at least three years. His breed is Dutch Shepard.

The Saline sheriff's office said two men were bit on Quail Ridge Drive in Alexander — Norman Beth, 73, and Trent Holloway, 35. Both were taken to a hospital for treatment. Beth's injuries weren't immediately known. Holloway, who'd been doing yard work, said he was bitten on the leg. The dog became aggressive when he tried to grab its collar for identification.

Here's the Saline report.

    SB 202, which will take effect Tuesday unless Gov. Asa Hutchinson vetoes it, isn't the only legislation pending that aims at protecting discrimination against gay people. A companion bill, HB 1228, by Rep. Bob Ballinger, has similar intent to protect "conscience" as a pretext for legal discrimination against gay people in matters unrelated to religious practice.

    It is hard for a straight person, The Observer included, to imagine what it would be like to be born gay — to be shipwrecked here on this space-going clod, where nearly every textbook, novel, film and television show, nearly every blaring screen or billboard or magazine ad, reinforces the idea that "normal" means "heterosexual."

    The Presbytery of Arkansas, the governing body for Presbyterian churches in the northern two-thirds of Arkansas, met Saturday at Clarksville and adopted a resolution urging Gov. Asa Hutchinson to veto SB 202, which is aimed at preventing local government from passing anti-discrimination laws to protect gay people. The Presbytery also expressed its opposition to a pending House bill that, in the name of "conscience," would protect those who discriminate against gay people.
