The mayor of the city of Detroit should have held a press conference to speak about this brutality of hideous dogfighting that continues to spread evil and death to the poor dogs and the community.

The mayor needs to say that oganized, vicious dogfighting that hidiously hides in Detroit will not be tolerated!

Every person at that dogfighting, death event needs to be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law!Give each of the 53 people who were arrested at this BARBARIC, TORTURE CHAMBER event four years in prison!They deserve to be in prison for four years!This kind of animal cruelty (to watch or participate in) is a four year felony. Let the heartless, cruel and hideously evil 53 people (animal killers) each receive FOUR YEARS IN PRISON. They damn well deserve it. Creepy,criminal dog killing evil no good scum of the earth a##holes. Suffer in prison! You cowards. Animal torturers. I pray to God you each get four years in prison. Aholes.

Please. God. Let there be justice for the dogs in Detroit.

Let justice shine for all the animals on God's earth.

Let it be known that organized dogfighting rings horribly injure and kill small, helpless animals, too. They throw them in the rings to let the dogs tear them apart. This is part of their training, which is supposed to train the dogs to be killers. The people who are involved in dogfighting are dangerous, heartless and extremely evil! Give them prison time if they are caught! Show them no mercy!

Now, just imagine what happens if these dogs get loose and lost in your community. If I were an animal which had been trained to attack and kill, I would hate humans. I would hate their guts. Some of the dogs, not all of them, will attack you so fast you will not know what hit you. Then, you will realize, oh my God, you are being attacked by a dog who may bite you to death. Good luck, trying to escape the jaws of a strong attack dog.

Give these people who torture, kill and brutalize animals four years in prison!

Make it safe for the people in our communities to be able to walk in their neighborhoods without the fear of being attacked by some lost dog who has been terriby, viciously abused by his criminal owner. Make it safe for the people in our communities to be able to walk their beloved pets without the fear of being attacked and killed by some lost dog who has been terribly, viciously abused and trained to kill by his callous, very stupid, criminal owner.

Give the people who are caught and arrested in dogfighting rings the maximum sentence. Four years in prison. Show them NO MERCY!

Organized dogfighting rings should not be tolerated in any of our communities.

Give them four years in prison. They should not be allowed to continue to put our dear dogs and neighborhoods in danger of death and destruction.

Stop allowing them to put people and beloved pets in danger of injury and/or death. It is a matter of life and death!

Say a prayer for the two pit bulls who WERE FORCED to fight in this most recent dogfighting chamber of death event. The dogs are innocent! I pray for them! I cry for all animals who are mistreated and abused!

Justice for the dogs in Detroit! Justice for dogs and animals everywhere! All over the world. Justice for all animals on God's earth!

90% of the people fighting dogs are convicted felons you idiot. The point im getting at is cities and counties want to put a dog ban on certain breeds because stupid chellas want to make a few bucks off fighting them. So there they go ruining it for the rest of us like they do everything else.

Are you serious? We still have to deal with dog fighting rings? I thought that was a thing of the past. I don't know why these guys don't understand that dog fighting IS animal abuse. Teaching these dogs to attack and kill each other is dangerous and stupid. I can't believe this is even still an issue. http://www.seponds.com/

I'm an animal lover and have two pitbulls of my own that I take very good care. In my opinion though, who gives a shit if these people are fighting dogs. Are they just mad that they're not paying taxes off the money earned? 4 years in jail, ha. Dog's fight on their own as it is and that's not illegal. I'm a big fan of UFC, and isn't this really the same thing? Oh, nevermind, the gov't allows it because of the income taxes that they could charge on it.

Kings and Queens used to watch dogs fight each other and other animals, to the death. So if it's ok for royalty, why shouldn't it be ok for cracked out junkies in D-town? Point being, mind ya bizness. If Vic wouldn't have been famous when his house in Virginia had a dog fighting ring in it, this case would've never even showed up. They would've received a fine and possibly had the money confiscated for tax evasion, but that's it, nothing more.

Obama said,"Even Sarah Palin is getting back in the game, guest hosting on the Today Show," Obama began. "Which reminds me of an old saying... what's the difference between a hockey mom and a pitbull? A pitbull is delicious."

Is that supposed to be a dog joke or a bitch joke?
