At any time, one or more of these dogs could have attacked the crowd and killed people.

We find out that there are even police officers and animal control people involved in dog fighting.

Is that the case in Memphis?

Why is animal control accepting paychecks and not doing its job?

Memphis has sustained quite a few level 5 maulings over the past year. One of them happened in a schoolyard.

Obviously, law enforcement has a blind spot because "It's just dogs".

People also need to use video cameras

Wish she had tape. That says a lot more than words

Let's be fair. The average animal control is equipped with a catch pole and maybe taser and we all know how effective those are. Thirty men, 15 pit bulls, an unknown number of weapons? What do you want an animal control officer to do? What do you want one or two armed patrol officers to do?

Given what we know about the connections between dog fighting and drugs, gambling & violent crimes, this call should have taken priority over all others. The Memphis PD should have swarmed those maggots. They should should have sent in a SWAT team. That was quite a missed opportunity to clean up some riff raff.

Who really gives a rat's ass if these attack and kill these punks? In that scenario, the dogs are actually performing a public service. My only concern would be for the undercover cops.

In some cities, animal control gets a lot of money and hires a good number of people

But the point is that they need to work with the cops to get things done

This is no shock. Memphis is a dump. I know, I lived there. They city is overrun with criminals, and dogfighting is all over the place. I guess the police don't believe in the "broken windows" theory of fighting crime.

The Menace Unleashed series, I can't quite figure it out. They aim for the "pit bull is misunderstood and abused" angle, but they do not seriously address the danger of the number of pit bulls in their community, nor necessarily the prevalence of dogfighting. They manage to slip a "few" slides in of human victims, including James Chapple. The people who made this slide show may not even know that he DIED due to his injuries a few months later...

James Chapple Jr., 59-years old, had just gotten off the bus and was walking home when two dogs ran out from an auto repair shop and attacked him. The pit bulls ripped off his entire left hand and badly mauled his right arm. The injuries Chapple sustained required amputation of his lower left arm. James died several months later from complications stemming from the attack.

Quote from one of the owners,
"These dogs make me feel like Superman."
Sums up your average two-bit owner well.
