Police will do nothing without filing a complaint. Then the white trash can find out for five dollars who filed the complaint. If they have a vicious rottweiler, I already know they'll be burning down my house. Laws are made for the dog owners. I guess the reason they have dogs is no one else likes them.

These are evil dogs owned by evil people. Period. And spare me the, "it's not the breed, it's the owner". That's a bunch hogwash.
And you know this how? It's always the owner. Given different treatment and training these dogs are smart enough to be very well behaved.

Sterilize all pit bulls now and let the breed die out. There are too many kids around with a half a face after someone's, "it's a really sweet dog" has ripped their little faces apart. Pit bulls are not essential to the biosphere continuum. They simply bolster those who feel inadequate in their own personal prowess or help protect meth labs. Bring it on dog freaks, I can handle it.
You got it. Let's see if your ranting cand keep up wuth hard cold facts...

Of all fatal dog attacks since 2000:

* 25% were chained or tethered at the time of the attack.

* 80% of the dogs were "intack" (not spayed or nuetered)

* 92% were males.

* only 21% of the dogs were pi bulls.

So, using your logic, German Shepards, Akidas, Rotties, Dalmations, and yes, even miniuture poodles need to be slautered.

Would you mind stating your source of your information please? I have to wonder why, if this is true, why there are so many pit-bull bans accross the country?

I got them from a compolation of humane education esseys called "Child Abuse, Domestic Violence, and Animal Abuse: Linking the Circles of Compassion for Preventionand Intervention" by Frank R. Ascione, Ph.D., and Phil Arkow, Editors, Sponsored by the Latham Foundation. It's not in any e-format, so I can't post links. But if you can't find the book in your local library, you can buy it here:
