I am a owner, raise the wonderful breed of Pitt-bulls. Most of the time, they are just grand, they follow the path of their owners be good or bad. Just follow "psych 101, or BF Skinner who shaped Rats behavior to be or not to be favorable for adapting to life. I know Pitts very well and find them very intelligent and very easy to train. Get a book at your local library and read up on this wonderful breed. You might be persuaded to adopt One for your very own.

These dogs in question were not exploited, except in the way they are now being treated as cruel when, in fact, they were a pair of the sweetest dogs I personally have ever met. And for your information, historically, pits that showed tendencies towards viciousness, decades before fighting them became illegal, were put down because owners did not want dogs of that strength and pain tolerance that could not be controlled. I doubt you would defend anyone who says all people of a certain race are criminals, so why say all dogs of a certain breed are vicious? Put aside your prejudices and think...
If people were selected and bred for aggressive/combative behavior, i.e., mating violent male criminals with violent female criminals, if the predisposition towards violence were NATURALLY OCCURRING and not a result of upbringing or brain damage, then YES eventually one could produce strains of naturally violent people in the same way the Germans tried to breed blonde, light-eyed people with their Lebensborn program during WWII. This "artificial selection"
has been performed before- IN FACT THAT'S HOW THE DIFFERENT BREEDS OF DOGS AND CATS CAME TO BE. Siamese cats were once EXTREMELY LARGE AND GUARDED TEMPLES. It's not racism when it's the result of genetic manipulation.

You are leaving out FREE WILL when it comes to breeding violent humans.

I agree with lanes. The owners are my best friends and I have known these dogs since they were born. These dogs were not a threat they have never hurt a soul since trey were born. Nor are the owners at fault. These are good people not what the media are portraying them to be. Back off becauseif you were in this situation you would not be on this blog bashing people you don't know
