911 calls released; police chief says officer attacked

WFSB has obtained copies of ten 911 calls made by students during the Fountain Ave. incident, and has made them available on their website.

Also, WFSB quotes Middletown Deputy Police Chief Patrick McMahon as saying that the attack by the police dog was due to a student attack:

One of the students remained in the hospital on Friday after being bit by a police dog.

Police Chief Patrick McMahon told Eyewitness News that the dog attack was an accident. He said that a student attacked an officer, and the dog did what he was trained to do: fight back.

    Not everything the police say is true, honey. Especially not in situations where they potentially are trying to cover their asses.

    Why is student attack ital’d? That’s exactly what led to the resisting arrest charge. The student allegedly stuck an officer who had a dog and the dog reacted biting the students. At least that’s what the police report says. You can pick up a copy at the MPD. It’s public record.

    The dispatcher who answers call #2 tells the caller that the entire department is there. Why was the entire MPD there? That use of force was certainly excessive.Not to mention that they were present in such a way as to prevent access by ambulances, even though it was quite obviously a situation that would very likely call for ambulances. Also, in #5: “I have another 911 call coming in so I’ll have to let you go.” Really? That’s how police dispatchers work?
