What I'm getting at is until DNA tests are done nobody can sit there and say it's time to ban theRead More breed when most of the time the breed is not accurately represented. Government temperament testing studies show the American Pitbull Terrier scores among the highest!

They were originally bred for one thing and one thing only. People , especially men, who own theseRead More dogs do so to make up for their own short comings.. "my dog can beat your dog" "look at me I control this scary dog so don't mess with me" . These are Uneducated , misguided cowards. . Oh and don't say you have one and we're never curious to see it fight. You know dam well why you got that dog you wimp. It's a dam shame someone didn't pull out 44 Ruger Red Hawk and stick it right up that dogs ass.

In answer to your question, as I understand it the coroner can usually identify it as a pit-bull byRead More the teeth marks on the victims corpse.

Thanks for the weather report. It seems to be more detailed, and more accurate, than the ones I getRead More on line.

the war on women is republicans trying to force women into involuntary servitude. I have flaggedRead More this vile propaganda. And will continue to follow up with patch to pull this idiotic post off here.
Gretchen Robinson April 16, 2014 at 11:07 pm
GOP, so stupid and tone deaf about how to reach young women (to brainwash them....to late DuckRead More Dynasty guys). So they went through Mitt's "Binders of Women" and found Phyllis Schlaffly who pitched her propaganda about how all women secretly want to marry men so they wouldn't have to work and could stay home and breed. Get this claptrap off PATCH.

wo=MEN can be brainwashed? Oh? How credible are wo=MEN as voters, if they can be brainwashed? You'reRead More right about Phyllis Schlaffly's propaganda about how wo=MEN, secretly want to marry MEN so they won't have to work and can stay home and breed. Now wo=MEN secretly want to marry MEN so they can divorce them and take all their money, and yes still breed, and on the MANS paycheck!

Alphonse, Do you know what makes a Great Leader? Followers.
JOAN FAGAN April 15, 2014 at 01:29 pm
Great comment Mike. Along those lines, we must be "good" for the sake ofRead More "goodness" not reward or punishment. A personal commitment to continue humanity assures our civilization and allows us to "go on".
Linda Maloney April 15, 2014 at 02:32 pm
So agree with both of the above comments! Yes, Mike great leaders have always had many followers,Read More but so did many evil leaders (Hitler, Stalin, etc.)! Yes, Joan, we have to try to be good for goodness's sake! I truly believe kindness , generosity and compassion for others is contagious, we just see a lot less around lately! We must not look for other's approval when we do good but we must thank others when we see them doing so!

Agreed but the problem we are running into here is at the end of the tragedy, you are told the dogRead More belongs to the child (usually a teenager) and the parents refuse to take any responsibility at all. Even to the extent of telling authorities themselves to put the dog down. It's disgusting the measures some take to avoid responsibility and get away with it! You are correct the laws are there for the law abiding citizens, the rest couldn't careless.

Doesn't matter, If the teen lives in the home or one the parents property they are responsible.Read More Their home owners insurance company can be sued as well. Putting the dog down does not negate the incident. It is like destroying the knife used to stab somebody. The stabber is still responsible. I am not a lawyer or anything like that but read enough cases and know enough victims as a Retired firefighter to know you can win on these things easily. Might not be able to get money from some of these people but you can get them banned from being able to own an animal again at the least in my opinion.

Would point out also that is the reason for getting leash law or town ordinances. They merely stateRead More the rule and have no age limitation. I have seen children walking a 40lb dog as young as 8 to 10. There is no way they could control that dog unless the dog has been very well trained along with the child being trained so the dog will obey it. Problem with society right now is that no one takes self-responsibility for their own action anymore (well any criminal activity or incidents like this). Idiot owners like to blame the dog also to negate their responsibility. Start throwing them in jail with sentences they would give to a person for doing what the dog does and you would have deterent. But there will always be some excuse. It sickens me to no end.
