Talk Back 3: Response to Pit Bulls of 11/08/07

We have focused on the owners. Even to the point of them threatening to sic their dogs on our photographers as soon as the cops left. These dogs were not around 40 years ago. As a newspaper carrier for 7 years in west Jackson, I got my share of dog bites. However, nobody ever got maimed in those days. Certainly they are mistreated. We document every case we can when we hear or see of it. But no other breed can snap like they can at a moment's notice. Why do you suppose they are called pit bulls? They were bred to fight in a pit. Those fighting genes just don't disappear overnight.
