As I have said before, if you mistreat an animal ( this could also inclued people). The animal, or person will turn on you.

KSD has also shown news clips of murders, driunk drivers killing another person, child molestation, corrupt polititions, robberies, just to name a very few, and these crimes have been committed by PEOPLE, not animals, at least even if a person is guilty, they get a trial. Should they. No worse than what these pitbulls did. I'am not condoning what these pitbulls did, but some of these people should be punished, If someone kept you lock up in cage, took away your freedom, I'm sure you would be vicious also

Mommato4kids, I watched those clips you posted. Nowhere in the interview with the son did he say the dogs actually killed his father, he only had a theory, HE WAS NOT SURE how it happened. At one point he even said, "it could have been a cougar" all he gave was theories, and he again made the comment, "these dogs are gentle". And by the way, did you see the living conditions for the dogs. The way the conditions were, if he lived in Florissant, he would have been given a citation by the Health Dept. And another thing, 17 dogs, ah come on!

Poo Taco you're right and that was our argument as well. Stafordshire Terrior IS a pit bill. Try explaining that to Florissant Health AND the board members. They didnt care.
It kills me that people think its okay to stereotype pit bulls as violent, but its not okay to stereotype black people as violent... The VIOLENT Black people are the ones that own the VIOLENT pit bulls.
Just sayin...(and before I get bashed...I'm mixed and half blank thank you very much...)
Excuse me I'm black I have a pit bull and neither of us are violent....so how about u stop being a stereotype or shall I say racist!

The reason Florissant enacted such a law (which a lot of other cities have also) is because of a few incidents. The final one was when a young boy was walking his new puppy and a pit attacked them. The boy was badly bitten and the puppy was killed. The dog that attacked had bitten others including the people who owned him.

Since someone brought it up, the owners of that dog were not black. Race is irrelevant except to the foul mouth racist/bigots that like to spend all day yammering on here.

Anyway, in order for the law to be enforceable they had to ban all pit bulls from being owned by people moving in after the law took affect. People who were residence before the law were allowed to keep their dogs after their residence was inspected by the animal control and certain things were done (like proper fencing). Not just pit bull owners residences were subjected to the inspection so were those who owned, German Shepards, Rotties, Dobermans and a few others.

Personally I think it is unfair to target one breed based on the actions of some of the dogs. Just like I think it is TOTALLY wrong to generalize about any race, ethnic group, religion, etc. Individuals commit the crimes. Individuals choose to behave indecently. The person who does such things is the person who deserves the blame, not an entire group or race. Only the very ignorant like some that can be found on this forum make negative hatefilled comments relating to an entire race or group. And those are the kind of people our community doesn't need no matter what race they belong to.

There was a house in Barrington Downs close to a friend who I would visit from time to time--on one of the streets behind that big clubhouse. They had a pit chained to a stake in the front yard, out in the sun all day with no shade, it was mean as hell and would lunge at passersby. They also had the concrete lions on the porch. What the hell is that all about? I don't get it.

what a surprise! You have another tale about blacks, who would have guessed.

Looks as if the only life (if it can be called that) you have is sitting by a scanner, hanging out on forums and watching black people. Pitiful, truly pitiful!

don't know what to tell you the above story is true, if the black people who lived in that house didn't do this i wouldn't have a story to tell.
