Bill Simmons' take on police dogs.

Ringer editor-in-chief Bill Simmons kicked off quite the Twitter fight Monday over his opposition to emotional support dogs. Simmons started it off Monday morning by tweeting a Washington Post story about a dog injuring a passenger on a flight. That drew some criticism.
