Body Cam Footage Shows Deputies Releasing A K9 On An Inmate in Oregon

An Oregon sheriff claims that dramatic body camera video showing deputies siccing a K9 deputy on an inmate with a suspected history of mental illness was a justifiable use of force. Belgian malinois K9 deputy named Lars was sicced on an inmate by his handler, Deputy Ryan Dews. Incident reports indicate Christopher Bartlett, an inmate who had been combative with deputies and may have a history of mental illness, needed to be moved to a different pod in the jail.
