In what may be the first US police chief to support a pit bull ban, Gary Pelican of Kinder, Louisiana has asked his town to consider such a ban. He cites several incidents involving the dogs, including one in which an officer shot one that attacked him.
"It's time to put an end to this," he said, saying he has the support of residents, many of whom are concerned for their children's safety."DogsBite.org hopes that Pelican's brave stance catches on to police forces nationwide. It's not just adults, seniors, children, and postal workers that are victimized by pit bulls, it is most certainly police officers as well. These dogs and other dangerous breeds are frequently used in criminal enterprises.

It's about time for what? The Rights of the Law Biding, RESPONSIBLE Pit bull owners to be quashed and stepped on?!
What you are doing is giving the IRRESPONSIBLE and Degenerate Dog owners a reason to consider the dog down the street for their next project.
Ban the IRRESPONSIBLE HUMAN, lobby for higher penalties, stricker laws, higher fines, longer jail time, and the loss of rights to ever own another pet.
Breedism is Racism at it's best! Makes you feel good doesn't it?

Unfortunately, it may be too late for the mythical responsible pit bull owner..Instead of being proactive and fixing the breed aggression problem, the denial of a problem continues.
The public views it this way...There are plenty of dogs of other breeds owned as casual pets. They aren't clogging the shelters, steadily causing six figure medical bills/deaths and being shot by law enforcement on a weekly basis.
