Oldfed, thank you so much for your nuanced perspective. We also need to be wary if cows, they areRead More big and can fall on you. It sounds like you have already gotten into some of their BS! Also glad some one else us finally blaming the soccer moms. Thank you so much for adding such positive thoughts to the conversation!

PEDOPHILE ALERT***Pho Boss Hogg has been approaching young boys. He is dangerous to your progeny.

John D, there you go, you tell that guy. That will scare him away. I'm curious why your mind wentRead More there, something you aren't telling us. Just don't be too rough on him, after all we all know about what you like to do with those dogs. Secret is safe with me brother, don't worry!

"The bullcrap about a Pit Bulls jaw locking...." I feel so much better, their jaws don'tRead More lock but they can still rip me to shreds or kill me. But oh wait, if they kill me, it's my fault because I don't know how to read or interpret dog psychology. I guess that poor grandmother deserved what she got because she caused the dog to attack her in her own backyard while she was minding her own business? Did I get all the pro dog talking points correct?

#Gus Sotirakis. The Nanny Dog propaganda you printed is a myth and confirmed via BAD RAP (a pitRead More bull advocacy group) just last May. Here is their facebook posting: https://www.facebook.com/BADRAP.org/posts/10151460774472399 BTW, why would a Nanny Dog attack children so often.....I know, I know. They did something to warrant it. I wouldn't call that a suitable family pet, by any standards. Stop reading the Pit Bull bible to us. It just doesn't fly anymore.

Tribble by your logic about Pit Bulls you must think minorities are bad. Our prisons are filled withRead More minorities therefore if you're a minority you must have a propensity to violence or to burglarize. That is the mentality of the Pit hater. Take a look at some of the even Michael Vick surviving dogs that were rehabbed. Mel who was rehabbed and moved to Texas with his new owner was even given a key to the city. Here are some results of temperment tests given to various breeds. The test looked for good temperaments in dogs. Lab Retriever 92.4% Amer Pit Bull Terrier 86.4% Golden Ret 84.9% Yorkie 82.5% Beagle 80% Shih Tzu 78% Bichon Frise 76.7% Yes the APBT was #2 on the list 2nd only to the Lab. 123 Breeds were tested. There are 4-6 million Pit Bulls in the United States. That is a low estimate. 99.9% of them never hurt a person. Furthermore: No single, neutered household pet Pit Bull has ever killed anyone. What I'm saying is dogs are individuals. Pit Bulls are a popular breed and owners need to be responsible. Persons aged 20-24 commit the most homicides, again by your put them all in one box thinking, lets just put anyone that age in prison. That'll save a lot more lives than a ban on Pit Bulls. That's what you "ban the Pit Bulls" logic looks like to us. Keep your dirty laws off my Pit Bulls. I'll defend my Pit Bulls if I have to with my guns.

Agreed but the problem we are running into here is at the end of the tragedy, you are told the dogRead More belongs to the child (usually a teenager) and the parents refuse to take any responsibility at all. Even to the extent of telling authorities themselves to put the dog down. It's disgusting the measures some take to avoid responsibility and get away with it! You are correct the laws are there for the law abiding citizens, the rest couldn't careless.
Jack Baillargeron April 16, 2014 at 04:57 pm
Doesn't matter, If the teen lives in the home or one the parents property they are responsible.Read More Their home owners insurance company can be sued as well. Putting the dog down does not negate the incident. It is like destroying the knife used to stab somebody. The stabber is still responsible. I am not a lawyer or anything like that but read enough cases and know enough victims as a Retired firefighter to know you can win on these things easily. Might not be able to get money from some of these people but you can get them banned from being able to own an animal again at the least in my opinion.
Jack Baillargeron April 16, 2014 at 05:05 pm
Would point out also that is the reason for getting leash law or town ordinances. They merely stateRead More the rule and have no age limitation. I have seen children walking a 40lb dog as young as 8 to 10. There is no way they could control that dog unless the dog has been very well trained along with the child being trained so the dog will obey it. Problem with society right now is that no one takes self-responsibility for their own action anymore (well any criminal activity or incidents like this). Idiot owners like to blame the dog also to negate their responsibility. Start throwing them in jail with sentences they would give to a person for doing what the dog does and you would have deterent. But there will always be some excuse. It sickens me to no end.

Boss Hog I see you changed your subtitle from "telling the whole story" to "helpingRead More people make decisions". Was that because I pointed out the FACT that you were NOT sharing the "whole story"? Let me point out something else, your NOT helping anyone with you simpleton approach to a Blog. I get it, you don't like certain dogs. It's your choice and your opinion. Your NON blog is just a collection of stories written by someone else and pictures that have nothing to do with the stories you recycle. It it exactly this biased reporting of a collection of horror stories about people being attacked that creates a fear of these dogs. Not all bully breed dogs are evil and bad. I feel bad for the people injured. It's terrible. But you neglect to tell the OTHERSIDE of the bully breeds. I personally know many pitbull type dogs that do good things but unfortunately we live in a drama addicted society so happy stories don't sell. you are in no way helping anyone. Try actually writing more than five bullet points about a terrible story. It would be nice to see some real discussion. It's unfortunate that many people hate these dogs based solely on the news instead of based on personal experience. I used to be that person until I actually met several pitbull dogs.

Hi Maya- I hopped back on this thread for one purpose- you and others on this thread have madeRead More sincere, intelligent comments. But you are ignoring the cardinal rule of the internet: Don't Feed the Trolls. Boss Hogg is a troll. His biased presentation of one sided material, "culled" (pun intended) from a broad, unrelated array of news sources, is classic trolling. Remember: Trolling is not just for the comments! The whole purpose of a blog can be to troll for outrage, and pageviews, as seems to be the case here.
Gary Renfrod April 15, 2014 at 06:33 am
You people all should get a life. By definition none of you who speak out against pit bulls haveRead More any first hand experience with pit bulls let alone owned, or taken care of one. My pit mix is the best, sweetest dog ever. And he was the eighth of seven prior fosters - some good, others great. I know there are bad dogs out there, and pits like any larger dog are powerful. So when they're bad, they're dangerous - but there's nothing unique to the breed that makes them so. By the way, my cocker spaniel/beagle mix is crazy and dangerous.

He espouses a point of view distorted through the lens of a Liberalism he believes in deeply... However, if the discussion is an examination of why there is an over-population of African-Americans in our prisons, then the discussion of family values must be central to the solution." ___________________________________________________ I love it when people do not even bother to read the blog before commenting.
