I understand that each separate incident needs to be looked at individually. Well bred Pit Bulls can be fine dogs. However, the vast majority of pit bulls ARE NOT well bred. They are intentionally bred to be aggressive by selection.
I also understand that not all of the police shootings involve Pit bulls. The vast majority do involve a few breeds I previously mentioned. The rarity is when a nice family dog is involved. When that happens, the cop should be persecuted.
I know bad cops abuse their position all the time. I see it even in my small town. I had one pull out in front of me at an intersection a couple weeks back. I had to slam on my breaks to avoid T-boning him. There was no emergency, his lights never went on. He just did not feel like waiting like a normal person would have to.
There is also a local story about an off duty cop hitting someone when he was drunk. At first it looked like he was going to get away with it. Huge public pressure came to bear. He is going to jail like he deserves.
The vast majority of cops are good people, putting their life on the line at times to do their job. Are there bad cops, absolutely.
Are far as dogs go. We had to put down a 2 year old yellow lab because he tried to bite people. One of the people was the 8 year old girl next door. My dad was attacked by his own dog(an Airedale Terrier)when he came home from a trip. It almost killed him. The breed that bites the most, as a percentage, is the Dachshound(bred to go into a hole, fight and kill badgers). The breed that has the most bites in total numbers are actually Labrador retrievers. This is because the lab is the most popular dog in North America.
Most dog bites do not get reported. They rarely result in serious injury. It is the big heavy guard dogs that have the ability to do serious damage and even kill. There is an Italian guard Dog called a Cane Corso. It is a mix between a pit bull and a Mastiff. It is bred to be a guard dog. It could easily kill a small person.
The other dog that accounts for many dog attacks are the wolf hybrids. They typically are a mix between a wolf and sheppard. I have a friend who was attacked by one of these when he was jogging down a rural road. He is 6’ and 200 lbs. He thought the dog was going to kill him. He ended up with 25 stiches in his legs.
Some breeds are just naturally dangerous. I have never heard of anyone that was killed by a Malteese. Except, killed with kisses.
Nice debating with you FRiend. :)
