I don't get it? Why the gag order in the first place? A pedophile wouldn't get such preferential treatment!

Well... at least he didn't try to feign surprise like most pitophiles.

So animal control knew these were problem dogs, they attacked and killed other pets but they did nothing?

And so this boy died

Update: Jury deliberates less than 1 hour...GUILTY!

Yes, Yes, Yes! God Bless that Jury. May the Lord keep them safe from harm, for surely there will be an aftermath from this verdict, because the Pro Pit Lobby will come out in droves to object in order to protect their right to own killing machines. They will cry for the "poor mis-judged breed", yet not one will shed a tear for this child or his family.

Guilty... GOOD! Now I want to see the sentencing at least try to match the crime, although 20 years is the maximum. Even if they both got 20 years, the 40 year total won't match all the days Tanner will be missing from this earth.

The two slingbladers only received seven years for killing Tanner. There still seems to be a legal blindspot irt to dogs for most people.

Interesting that the defense lawyers complain that the couple is "being punished for the behavior of dogs, not for something that they did themselves". They go on to state that seven years in prison is unreasonable.
The pit bull fanciers always state that "it's the owner's fault, don't blame the dogs". You can't have it both ways, if it's always the owner's fault then seven years seems like a light sentence for the death of a child.
Lillian's Law shows promise.

I called the police today because of a pit bull on the loose. The owner was setting up on the porch, on the phone, the dog, maybe 70 lbs, was running around in the street and in the neighbors yard and the police acted like I was bothering them. There were other people that were walking their dogs on leashes and the pit bull on the loose. What a bunch of crap.

Get a video camera!Document the dog running around and with the owner.

Then go to the mayor or city council and raise heck.

Get together with other concerned citizens if you can. Get a petition signed for better laws and enforcement.

Take some printouts of examples of attacks and deaths caused by loose pit bulls.
