I belive that pit bull should be legalize ther not the monsters people say they are. Any dog could be vicous its the way they are train and the time spent doing so. The ban of pit bull race is like being racist toward the blacks and white. Whats the diffrence between a greman sheperd and a pit bull? There just as vicious.If the ban stays there goin to be more problems people hide their dog because they dont want them to get tooken away or fined, less vets attention means higher risk of the dog getting sick and getting rabies.I mean shouldnt all animals no matter thier race or colors be treated the same? Legalize pitbulls it not the animals fult they were train to be that Way its the owner they should be delt with. I have a pit myself and ive never had a mor noble friendly loveable compaion lyk my pitbull

"its the owner they should be delt with"

How ignorant. So AFTER the neighbors kid has been mauled than the ownber should be dealt with.

In the land of Sp#cs with less and less Hispanic Americans every decade you do not legalize a breed which was bred to fight .
I would hate to live in Hialeah if PB are legal.

Don't give me that BS that cocker spaniels bite more because I rather see a kid bit by a cocker spaniel than a pitbull mauling.

Where are Sharpton and Jesse Jackson. Vicious Pit Bulls are a vital part of Black Culture.
Abusing an innocent dog until it becomes a killer is typical and encouraged in that Community.

I am for a ban on Pitbull the Cuban "singer"/rapper. If you can call him a singer. He copies other people's music doesn't he? Cubans love to copy...

Did you know that "Pitbull" the famous Miami Cuban who not only has DUI's but admitted drug dealer was given key to city by Miami Cuban politician?

I guess since he is another Miami Cuban it is over looked the disaster that drugs do to neighborhoods and families not to mention the fabric of America.

"Rapper Pitbull has been arrested for DUI - twice - and has admitted to once being a drug dealer in Miami, but that's not stopping Commissioner Tomas Regalado from giving him the keys to the city."

As you know Tomas Regalado is now mayor.
Perhaps he will also give the recently arrested Medicaire fraud Miami Cubans , keys for the city.

The political standards in this ill run banana republic are ZERO thus I would not be shocked.

There are also plenty of sp#cs here and as is the city is so badly run by such grossly inept, self serving Cuban politicos that even when illegal pitbulls attack, NOTHING happens to the sp#c owner.
This took place while back and the guy had his dog registered as a collie or something like that.

"MIAMI (WSVN)-- Miami-Dade Animal Control put down a dog after it attacked a mail carrier Wednesday afternoon. Now the owner has hired a lawyer.

Coral Gables Hospital is treating 53-year-old Georgina Pacheco for what they described as severe injuries after the dog jumped on her, biting here hand and chest as she tried delivering the mail to a home the area of Southwest 36th Avenue and 24th Terrace on Wednesday afternoon. Police said the animal ran out of the home where she had planned to drop off the mail.

Omar Fernandez, the dog's owner disputed the notion that his 5-year-old pet, named Blue, is a vicious dog that needed to be euthanized. "I saw her yelling, the dog started walking towards her, wagging his tail, and she was going like this," Fernandez said as he clawed at the air, "and when I got there the dog was sitting down."

"A pack of pit bulls on the loose in a South Florida neighborhood left one man under attack.

Seventy-six-year-old Walter Roach is in the hospital for the first time in his life after being attacked by a pit bull.

Roach was going out for his daily walk in his Miramar neighborhood when his neighbor's pit bulls, Tiger and Leviathan, ran up to him and started barking.

Shortly after, a third pit bull named Red heard the noise. "There goes the big dog through the gate, the big pit bull, and when he was coming in a speed you cannot outrun," said Roach. "And just come and jumped on me and knocked me down, and then he tried to get my neck."

The pit bull then attacked Roach, biting his leg, arm and back. "There was a lot of blood, a lot of blood," he said. "Since I came here, it's about five times they changed the thing. I'm still bleeding"

Above is the exact scenario, of how the worst people are attracted to owning pitbulls....it may not always be the dog's fault, but it's almost always the owner's fault....

YOU sir are the ignorant one. Pitbulls, like any other dog, can be trained. It's the owner who raises them to fight! Like any other breed if you show them love and care, it is rare that they will snap unless they feel threatened. At the end of the day they are animals. Why be prejudice to this one specific dog breed? If you are voting for the ban, might as well vote to ban every dog in general. There is not one animal that can be 100% domesticated. Regardless of its breed, just like a human, when an animal is mistreated, abused, or threatened, they are going to defend themselves. It has NOTHING to do with the breed!
PRO PITBULLS! I'M VOTING TO DISCONTINUE THE BAN.

No such thing as being prejudice as far as dogs are concerned.

Pitbulls are dangerous and most will be voting to keep them banned, the underwear sticking out of sagging shorts bunch might be voting for first time in their lives to lift the ban but rest of us want them to remain banned.

The only reasons that you see more pitbulls on the news is because they attract the media .A Dalmatian does not nor a fat stupid Bulldog .But yet the dalmation does a lot of damage and so does the Rottweiler, which are ugly looking dogs .Of course the pitbull has muscles and most of the times are in hiphop videos, which gives them a negative connotation.
And yes it is the owners fault not the dogs. Now a days, most pitbull owners are thuggish delinquent wannabes because thats what they see in stupid hip hop videos .
Now if you want to talk about breeds then send the blacks back to africa or if not they will take away our money steal the cars and live off of food stamps .
Put all the whites in prison because they all are from the KKK and stackers don't forget serial killers and live in the swamp in a trailer .The only reason so called sp*cs are in this country or cubans is because the CIA put Fidel in power if not they would be in their own island.
And you're probably still living with your mother you fat a*s and banging your sister, aunt and cousin while living in a shed by the swamp in a trailer home MR.GITANO .
{Roach was going out for his daily walk in his Miramar neighborhood }
You do know MIRAMAR is in broward .GITANO isn't that a sp*c name?
It's a shame that there are still so many white people living here in Miami. If you hate and talk so much crap about it, why don't you just go further up north with the rest of your kind and your KKK tribe. Don't worry, my family, the Iraqi's will come to the rescue :) and then you'll hate us, too :*
