Rector, AR - Another Arkansas town is reviewing its vicious dog ordinance and another police chief speaks pointedly at pit bulls. Police Chief Tommy Baker says that pit bulls are the most dangerous breed there is because they don't let go.
"Unlike German Shepherds and Dobermans, a pit bull is bred to not let go once it bites. That causes more damage and makes them more dangerous."Mayor Ron Kemp agrees. He says, "I think if you went to the people in town who were concerned about vicious dogs and told them you were going to put an ordinance into effect which required Pit Bulls to be kept in a pen, 90 percent of them would be happy."

Simple answer: 200 years of grotesque selection via the fighting pit. The developers of the breed were no different than Mike Vick, even though they are revered as "noble dogmen" by the Pit Bull counterculture.
