Houston, TX - Texas and pit bulls are in the news again -- this time for a drug related crime. As a pair of HPD narcotics officers carried out a search warrant on the 10100 block of Cheeves, they entered a room to find a 31-year-old man, his girlfriend and a pit bull. The dog charged the officers, who both fired their weapons. The dog was badly injured and did not survive.

Well aggresive or not I count 21 that were killed by the police or shot by someone in self defense. Thats 21 this year. If you plan to defend yourself you better have a gun, not much else will do the job. A freind says a pitch fork is pretty handy if you don't own a gun. Forget a baseball bat, that will only get you killed.

Yep... at current pace, US Law Enforcement will shoot over 120beserking "Nanny Dogs" this year. If it were Mountain Lions or Bears being shot at this frequency, the public would demand that they be hunted to extinction.

All the police I've talked to really would like to see something done. It's getting dangerous to try to make an arrest. These people have a built in defense system, that they don't have to be held accountable for.
"oops, sorry about that" is all they have to say.
