I stumped on this article today. Very interesting that we see more articles are being written, and taken seriously by so many.
Thanks Jennifer Thompson for the enlightenedment.
Dariek from Brentwood, Michael Vick is now linked to this - and is being punished by the NFL, endorsements, etc.
(in this article above) Rapper Jay-Z has a pit bull snarling and lunging at the camera; a DVD titled "Hood Fights Volume 2, The Art of the Pit," shows several vicious pit bull fights, and rapper DMX has a toned pit bull gracing his CD cover.
There is a dog fighting problem in all states.(from Article)-Whether it be at highly organized events or at improvised encounters for 'street cred," the activity is growing nationwide and goes largely unpunished in Missouri and Kansas.
We need to shut these things down.
I DON'T KNOW HOW (I know know why - greed for money) but to sit there and watch helpless dogs (or any animal for sport) go at each other. You have to have a screw loose.

Seems this less than human has also been charged with unlawful posession of a firearm and as an unlicensed driver. His bail was set at $50,000.00 (not posted as of July 24) and his next court date is pending.

Appears his attorney is court appointed, as he went into court "Pro-Se", so we the taxpayers are footing his legal bill,($75.00-$100.00 per hour.

Let's hope we get our money's worth and this creep gets put away for the max!

I did give, but it wasnt toward the reward. The day I wen t on to give to help with Maximus care, it said in memory of Maximus. Thats how I found out he passed. But I gave so that they can continue their honorable work. What if the Npsca or Spsca or these vets werent there to give their services. The Aspca would have just put him down. These orgs are there to help save these animals and they need our help too.
Yes, I also gave to the Veternary Medical Center of Long Island for Maximus's care. I wish I was rich, it's so frustrating to not be able to make a huge difference.

Am I reading correctly? Did no one call until a reward was offered?
That is correct. They all waited until the decent people in this world had offered as much as they could. Disgusting, but it's the only way to make them talk.

It always saddens me to see animal abuse! First of all when you save an abused dog, you need to take it to a professional animal medical center to get treated with everything that it needs. They need love after that, but you need to give it slowly at first so they trust you unlike their old owners.
