I hear pit bulls are such nice dogs, but all the dog attack stories involve pit bulls.

...with a safe backdrop, away from neighborhood homes.

Yah know... it's tough enough to keep your head about you when under stress. That's some good situational awareness by the homeowner/shooter.

My mother was searching for a new dog and went to the pound.

All she saw were pit bulls and pit bull mixes when she was looking for a little yapping lapdog.

They seem to be overpopulating dog pounds all over the country.

Somebody is letting their unspayed and unneutered pit bulls out to run around impregnating anything it can.

Poor doggies.
It’s not their fault, its how they are raised.

Shoot Pit Bull owners, not the dogs.

There’s a little give and take; while pit bulls were raised to be more aggressive (or defensive?) dogs, they’re not tremendously worse than any other breed in that regard.

However, how they’re raised has a huge influence on how a dog develops. When someone wants to buy a “mean guard dog”, guess what they buy?

It’s like how sports cars and hummers are the most likely vehicles to get speeding tickets - the vehicles aren’t prone to speeding, it’s about the buyer.

Police say that, "The area and manner in which the dogs were shot was determined to be remote with a safe backdrop, away from neighborhood homes."

But cops are allowed to open fire on crowded streets, apparently the more shots fired the better, right next to the Empire State Building, wounding nine innocent bystanders, no problemo.

It’s not only how they were raised.

We had a sweet lady in this community who raised her pitt bull well, never had any history of violence.

It bit and shook her infant baby to death.

My boarder collie will never swim in icy water as well as my labrador retriever, no matter how well trained.

Good.

If you have large breed dogs and don’t keep them from roaming free, prepare for someone to kill them.

Besides, most pitbulls are owned by douchbags who train them to be aggressive.

The animal control officer left a comment after the article to say that the dogs were not pit bulls.

It's been this way for a decade at least. You can thank the thugs and the playerz. Having a bully dog is a big deal in their "communities." Tragically most of these dogs are badly bred, unsocialized and have more often than not have been treated cruelly and abused from birth. Unless you are a trained animal rehabilitator you'd be safer adopting a petri dish of live ebola virus.
