Indisputable evidence that Crosby is a hired gun for the pit nutter lobby.

The emperors are losing their clothes.

I would like to know if he actually came to believe this drivel OR was he paid to believe this drivel? In essence, has he been brainwashed or just sold himself out?

It's unclear, but he certainly goes to ridiculous lengths to blame the victim. If only Mary Bernal had not been holding the dachsund in her hand, well, she'd still be alive today...if only the dachsund had not "supplanted" the pit bull, well then, the pit bull would not have been jealous and KILLED a person...

The MaulerAnalyst is brilliant and worthy of repeating:

The Crosby Analysis
.....The pit bull is not to blame for the attack that killed a person and violently injured another because Taz was "supplanted" by the dachshund. When a dog feels jealous, it's perfectly okay to attack and KILL.
.....It's Mary's fault that she picked up the dachshund to stop the dogs from "scrapping" and screamed in fear. Mary should have known that to "scream" in the vicinity of a pit bull is an invitation to attack and KILL.
.....Mary also should have known that continued screams would only trigger the already explosive Taz to attack more violently. Regardless of the fact that at this time, her scalp was likely being ripped OFF.
.....Ms. Macias never should have picked up the shovel to save her sister-in-law. According to Crosby, that was the nail in the coffin. The "screaming, thrashing" woman was bad enough. But when the owner began to hit her dog with a shovel, Mary's DEATH was a no-brainer. (It was reported at the time that Ms. Macias suffered at least one thumb loss as she tried to pry the dog off of Mary).
.....Crosby excuses Taz's "sudden aggression" on a possible neurological disease despite this breed specific behavior. This deduction is from the seizures that emerged after being repeatedly bashed with a shovel. The McKnight Brain Institute should be informed that "sudden aggression" is indisputably a genetic trait in pit bulls.
.....Finally, notice how the pit bull owner in Crosby shines through as the misunderstood, man-killing pit bull is lovingly referred to as "Taz" throughout the comment, and the expendable dachshund is referred to as "little dog" and "the dachshund."

The Pit Bull community relies heavily on self-created dog authorities to steer the dangerous dog debate away from the breed issue. Mr. Crosby’s own website states that he does not charge communities for his investigations, begging the question: Who is paying?

Yes, that is an absolutely brilliant breakdown of the "expert's" work. So nice of him to share it with us non-pit nutters.

People actually pay for this shite?

Crosby is an arrogant ass who has sold his soul to the ONLY DOG THAT MATTERS.

It would be be interesting to see an examination of his financial records.

Is his business licensed? Is he filing tax paperwork and accounting for "donations" and income?

I guess we now have a better understanding of why Mr Crosby is no longer in law enforcement. He lacks the necessary moral fiber for the job. Clearly, his skills are more aligned with a lobbyist.

Crosby still is in Law enforcement...He is the Animal Control director in Bay County Fl!
Their new enlightened dog law allows a dog to kill two domesticated animals before being declared dangerous.

The Nutters are working overtime creating faux experts spewing garbage about dog aggression. It is an attempt to lower society's expectation of normal canine conduct and be more accomodating to the pit bulls they are selling.

First time I had seen the analysis of the McCurry death.

Whitewash Jimmy postulates that the man was killed due to taking drugs prior to trying to purchase this misunderstood leg humper.

I swear, these analyses are not written for the benefit of the public, they are written to keep the pit dupes motivated and sending money to the pit lobbiests.

With 'Whitewash Jimmy' out of the way, maybe the ACF can start grooming one of the other upcoming stars in the pit bull world to become the next court recognized dog behavior/aggression expert.
1) Mary Harwelik with her 20+ yrs as a dog trainer (certified since 2007)
2) Julie Perry, the 29 year old woman from Mississippi with 30+ yrs as a veterinarian.

Jere Alexander would be my first choice but no one can find her.

Well, I just don't see AC as an arm of law enforcement. They have become social workers.

Too bad your site doesn't bump stories up to the top when they are commented on. I would like this one alive for awhile.

What Happened:
McCurry and Cunningham drove to the residence of Firas Beseisso to inquire about the sale of a large, mature pit bull. The three were talking when the pit bull, Dax, broke free from the owner and attacked McCurry and Cunningham. Cunningham was attacked first but she was able to get to the roof of her car for safety as McCurry and Beseisso attempted to restrain the dog from further attacks. While attempting to restrain the pit bull, it attacked McCurry, biting him over 90 percent of his body. The fatal bite was to his neck.

Animal People News:
However, Firas Beseisso, 22, of Willis, another Houston suburb, was charged with a Class A misdemeanor count of possessing a dangerous dog, after his pit bull killed David "Ted" McCurry, 41, on October 29, 2006. Recounted the Houston Chronicle, "McCurry and Kimberly Cunningham, 19, had gone to Beseisso's home to look at the pit bull because they wanted to buy a dog for home protection."

Crosby's Version:
On top of that, Drix was protective because of his owner’s disability, and the dog slept each night on his owner’s chest. The bottom line, Crosby said, “is the dog was looking out for the owner and making the decisions because (his owner) was unable to. The dog was taking care of the human.” For some reason, Crosby said, “the dog perceived this visitor -- who had shot up some sort of intravenous drug shortly before he arrived and had needles and some other drugs on him -- as a threat and it set this dog off. The dog’s response was over the top.”

It's at the Best Friends link in the story(5th link).

So BEST FRIENDS is supporting Jim Crosby?

Clearly they have gone completely down the toilet, and have now decided to alienate the average joe out there with a radical who says that people who get killed by a pit bull deserve it

Who sold Best Friends to the breeders?

By the way, Michael Mountain looks like he got tossed out of Best Friends. He is no longer president.

Was he the problem, or did someone else get him out of the way in order to head Best Friends down the breeder and dog fighter lobby path?

Mountain was publishing propaganda from this friend of the dog fighters and in the magazine, but maybe he wasn't the only problem?

“Much to the amazement of the police, I was able to put a lead on Drix without any problem,” Crosby said.

While two trainers, armed with Taser stun guns and double poles, as well as an officer with a loaded tranquilizer gun and armed sheriff’s deputies, stood ready, Drix walked into the run and allowed Crosby to approach him."

Nothing like doing a job with your hands with guns, tasers and catch poles nearby to boost your ego.
Yep, lion tamer syndrome!

"“The dog’s owner is developmentally impaired, with poor decision-making skills and is illiterate,” she said.

Um... isn't this the main criteria of pit bull ownership?

BestFriends and Crosby are tied at the hip! Crosby was the expert called for the Amicus Brief to get the Vick dogs!

Mr. Crosby advises that temperament testing of fighting dogs is not measured in minutes but in weeks. A dog which has been used in fighting cannot be evaluated in the noisy environment of a kennel surrounded by a chorus of barking dogs in open view cages. This environment is usually too stressful and almost guaranteed to provoke either fear or aggression in a dog which has been traumatized. As a result the outcome is almost predetermined. The dog will react badly and will fail the temperament test and will be put to death. Because of their traumatic experiences, these dogs require a highly specialized form of assessment which few shelters are equipped to provide.

"The facts of the case as Crosby and Woodard learned them are based upon their investigation and in-depth interviews with witnesses as well as input from law enforcement and animal control."


"The dog, a young pit bull named Drix (who was also called Dax), regularly greeted visitors to the house, usually young people in their 20s, by humping their legs. “Drix was used to being pushed away,” Woodard said. “The dog tolerated people pushing him off.”"



"When Drix ran out of the house to meet the new person, “something caused the dog to go for the man,” Woodard said. “It was all about that man and very personal to him. He had just shot drugs with needles. He was high.”

"For some reason, Crosby said, “the dog perceived this visitor -- who had shot up some sort of intravenous drug shortly before he arrived and had needles and some other drugs on him -- as a threat and it set this dog off. The dog’s response was over the top.”"


What an absolute shame, that NO where does there exist a TRULY IMPARTIAL EXPERT on dog aggression and fatal attacks. It is so obvious that Jim Crosby and his new sidekick, Sherry Woodard have an agenda, my head is spinning. Unbelievable that they have not been discredited!

We need the transcript of the Aurora case, NOW!

The so-called "rehabilitated" dogs now live in an above ground cemetery (at Best Friends). Quite a life, as BF rakes in cash on their behalf.

Anonymous Jimmy O  |  12/09/2008 1:40 PM  |  Flag  
This is my understanding of how the criminal justice system operates:

1) information is collected by investigators (officers, detectives, investigators etc)

2) that information is evaluated by prosecutors

3) the information is then presented to a judge/jury and they are the ones who determine FACTS.

I am I wrong? Does it appear that Crosby et al have elevated their role in this process? At least for these two particular cases broken down by Whitewash Jimmy?

Whitewash Jimmy's role seems to be:

Make up a story which;

1.Places blame on the victim
2.Places blame of the owner
3.Whitewash the fact that a dog bred for centuries to bite and shake things to death actually bit and shook something to death.

And if Winograd gets his way, we will have an explosion of above ground cemeteries. Got to wonder about the logic behind this mentality with the worst employment report in 160 years plus massive home foreclosures followed by record numbers of family pets being dumped at the shelters, left in abandoned homes and dumped on the streets PLUS the donations for animal rescue being at an all time low with pit nutters screaming about saving all of these fight bust dogs.
This system can't support itself much longer.

Bravo, very succinctly stated not to mention witty.

I understand why people just sign anonymous (it is quick and easy, I used to do it too) but sometimes I would like to be able to credit some of these really good comments, like the one above.

Best Friends is out of their minds for getting involved with people like this

It makes them look like idiots and nuts

They obviously are money-hungry but they are selling off their future if they stay involved with people like Crosby and Winograd

James Crosby presented as "neutral source" in interview with Eric Alvarez, KVUE TV, 24 Jan 2018, "Ad urging people to not adopt pit bulls goes viral." No disclosure made of Crosby's affiliations.
