Well let's see here; Out of @ a 150 word post about the incident, Jack@$$ expends 8 words to coverRead More the gruesome prolonged mauling to death of a 4 year old, and the entire rest of the post is dedicated to finding an excuse for the behavior of the dogs that mauled the 4 year old to death. So ignorant and unversed in dog behavior and training and ownership is our <3 inches Jack, that he is unaware that abused, unsocialized, dogs that have been chained or confined to crates and who are let out of their crates by 4 year olds, DON'T MAUL THEM TO DEATH. Only pit bulls have that propensity. Keeping it really really simple for the < 3 IQ pts Jaqov, if you have to write an entire manifesto of excuses for why a only a certain breed of dog is always mauling babies and women and the elderly, pets and livestock to the point of crippling or killing them, THEN THERE IS A PROBLEM WITH THAT BREED OF DOG. I just never hear people opine with such stentoriously tumid rhetoric about any other breed of dog or living creature or serial murderer like pitiots do for their idol. There just never is a need to to try to explain why.... FOR THE THIRD TIME in as many days, any of the people and animals listed below, ripped up a baby, for fun. Here's a tiny short digest of a list of things that do not do that; the poodle/chi hua ,hua/ spanial/lab /GSD/dachs/pom /Golden/vizsla/lurcher/ibizan hound/borzoi/pharoah /ridgeback/akita/pug/rat terrier/staghound/longdog /Dalmatian/entlebucher sennenhund/sheltie/Beagle/ border collie/ bouv/Mal/ cattle dog/ Tervuren/swiss mountain dog/great dane/irish wolfhound/chart polski/azawakhs/saluki/husky/pack of wild african dogs/pack of wolves/pack of coyotes/pod of orcas/troop of gorillas/kangal /maremma/anatolian/great pyranese/duck toller/spinone italiano/harrier/ fox hound/herd of wild mustangs/ grizzly bear/ polar bear/pod of pinapeds/black bear/puma/bobcat/yorkie/school of sharks/all the grupes in the world/dragons/rattle snakes/scorpions/velociraptors/not even the combined work of damler, manson, wournous, Gacey, Borden, Sam and the boston strangler can claim to have torn the flesh off of infants and toddlers 3 times in 3 separate cases in one week, none of them have ever done what the pit bull has gleefully done, year in and year out all over the world for over 20 years now.

Mad as hell... July 21, 2014 at 07:45 am
Any dog can go crazy wanting to attack another dog but as I've recounted here many times when aRead More pitbull attacked me and my leashed dog Max. Max was no small dog...over 100 lbs at the time...and was ready to rumble with this little bitch pitbull but I saw the futility in it. Without going too much into detail let's just say the little bitch died from it's injuries a few months later while suffering the whole time getting there. Her owner was a dirt bag who didn't take it to the vet after I cracked and broke several of the little bitch's ribs when I launched it through the air with a swift but solid shin bone kick to the ribs. I can still see it in my mind's eye how it flew through the air a good 15' before landing on the road and spinning on it's side into the ditch.

A pit bull saving a child is nice. But it's irrelevant. Nobody's saying that every pit bull onRead More earth has human flesh stuck in its teeth. What sane people are thinking and saying, after 40 years of playing guinea pig for the pit bull owners who want to own a powerful, violent breed as if it was a gentle, kind one, is that there are hundreds of dog breeds and types whose track record for killing humans is zero. So why keep rolling the dice? There is nothing special about pit bulls except for their violence. You want a chunky dog with a big head and not much brains, you can get a lab.

From NYT: “Substantial evidence presented makes it clear to this court that the challenged statutes disproportionately affect poor and/or minority students,” Judge Rolf M. Treu of Los Angeles Superior Court wrote in the ruling. “The evidence is compelling. Indeed, it shocks the conscience.” The decision, which was enthusiastically endorsed by Education Secretary Arne Duncan, brings a close to the first chapter of the case, Vergara v. California, in which a group of student plaintiffs backed by a Silicon Valley millionaire argued that state tenure laws had deprived them of a decent education by leaving bad teachers in place.

Seriously? Those of you who are blaming the animal are completely uneducated and VERY misinformed.Read More The pit bull is NOT to blame. Try looking at the other end of the leash rather than blaming the dog. These animals are "TRAINED" to be aggressive, not born aggressive. So the owner is the one to blame. I work with victims of dog fighting daily. I am the President & CEO of the Anti-DogFighting Campaign, a worldwide campaign striving to stop dog fighting, making sure offenders are punished for their crime, saving the victims of dog fighting and educating/promoting awareness to the public. So after 17 years of my life being invested in this battle, I do know that the one to blame is the HUMAN who TRAINED the dog. I have seen my share of victimized pit bulls and it's sad how they have to struggle just to survive because of all those who are so self righteous and think they know it all about these animals, when in fact, they are so uneducated and have absolutely no idea about the breed. Before passing judgement, maybe you should actually check out the actual TRUTH. No matter how you look at this, it's discrimination. These animals learn what they are TAUGHT, breath just as a human, bleed just as a human, and show emotion just as humans show theirs. Start learning the facts before you judge cause I am sure you wouldn't like to be judged on your flaws just because it is how you were raised and taught. The humans are the danger in society, not the pit bulls. The pit bulls are the victims and if you want to see how they are victimized, check out our page. Educate yourselves. https://www.facebook.com/AntiDogFightingCampaign
