Is that a Dutchie?  Why does it look like a pit bull?

A pit could turn on its handler.

There could be a few causes. I don’t know about in dutchies. But in mals and GSDs there seems to be occasional cases of the dogs having something similar to rage syndrome. 
 

Along with that there could be the issue of people being okay with handler aggression. We don’t know the qualifications of the handler or the breeding behind the dog. Some smaller departments will let officers buy dogs or have them donated and train them up. If they got the dog from a less than reputable breeder or one of the people who thinks handler aggression makes for a better dog that could come into play.

The dog has handled aggression and maybe poor nerves, but it could be a mix. I can’t tell from the picture.
