    In minnesota a few years ago the state passed a vicious dog law.
    state wide, it was done cause a unfit parent letting thier 7yr'old child
    run loose up and down the block. a neighbors pit got loose from the yard an mauled
    the child. now the owner of any dog on this list' shepards pits chows dobes
    like that will automaticy recieve a year in prison. where is the responibilty of others.
    to automaticly place blame on the pet owner. and prison time to boot. thats crazy
    and this law is state wide not just the cities.
    coyotes listen to them, like children of the night what music they make.

    I don't even know what to say to that. I suppose a good parent would have kept their child chained up at home. A parent is unfit because they let their child play? I have to hand it to you. That's certainly a twisted way to look at it.

    There's a guy that wears a wife beater T shirt and a lot of gold chains that occasionally walks his pit bull up our street. The dog wears a spike collar and is on a chain. I mean a chain. It pulls that guy down the street straining the chain the whole way. It takes great interest in other dogs, cats, kids, and adults. The guy either crosses the street or pulls the dog off the sidewalk to let people go by. Dog has intense prey instinct, aggression, and is very reactive. My observations and fear have nothing to do with the breed. I live across the street from an elementary school. Kids are always playing over there. I hope the guy moves soon.

    the thing is this, this incident took place in the ghetto so to speak.
    in such a neighborhood and given the world we live in today.
    it's not the world we grew up in many moons ago.
    child abductions, driveby shootings and the like.
    children SHOULD be able to play freely.
    but sadly our world in many places has changed for the worse.

    15 people watched while 2 pit bulls killed a 7-year-old child last week.

    You can bet the farm if someone there at the scene (Mass.) had pulled out a handgun and shot the dogs, he would now be in jail.

    In Lowell MA, there was probably a pretty good chance someone there did have a gun, but didn't want to add 'felon in possession of a firearm' to dog killing charges.

    Children do play freely in the Ghetto- mostly in the basement with the nintendo...

    I couldn't get your link to post but if I saw any human being attacked by a dog I would intervene. Doubtful I would shoot the dog because I rarely conceal carry (except in Florida) but I would either club the dog or choke him to death with my hands. Two dogs would require some kind of weapon though.
