DAILYKENN.com -- Markus Meechan, 28, apparently has a weird sense of humor and the British government has a stranger sense of free speech.
Teaching dogs the Nazi salute is considered a hate crime in Britain and Meechan has been arrested.
Meechen contends it was more of a practical joke than heart-felt anti-Semitism.
The suspect video recorded the dog and posted the video on the Internet where it received about 1 million views.
The Sun newspaper referred to Meechen as a YOB, which is a slur in Britain but — unlike a dog Saluting Hitler — is apparently protected free speech.
