This is terrible-another child killed by a pit bull-- pit bull's don't really deserve the reputation the media invokes- poodles are probably worse- but if you train dogs to hurt people or give the dog meth etc.-- they will in fact hurt people. Because the family were pacific islanders-- someone in the family or owner of the dog before probably trained the dog-probably a filipino to hurt "white people" or "white indians" etc. and the dog thought it was okay or his food got spiked,maybe on accident with meth etc.- and the family and boy paid the ultimate price. Pit bulls might get taken out by cops soon just for any aggressive behavior etc. and homeless pitbull owners might not be able to own a pit bull etc or laws preventing pit bulls being around kids. I don't really think its the pit bulls but the "trained" behavior by people-- poodles are way worse that pit bulls- the media just blew the bad reputation out of proportions and bad people get pit bulls for the "bad reputation" etc.

I guess rotweillers are the dangerous ones-- I thought it was the poodle-poodles are really snappy dogs -they can't really be around toddlers and young kids.

Pacific Islanders do deal in crystal meth-mostly "ice" the pure form-- lets test the dog for meth and see if he got spiked (by eating a stray baggie of meth" etc.

Looks like their going to impose restrictions on pit bulls- that means conflicts with owners etc.

This is all probably based around hiding the meth in the dog food?
