The original CarolinaLive.com article has been updated to include:

Neighbors say the pit bull mainly stayed outside chained up, but because of bad weather Tuesday night, Lane decided to bring him inside. According to a couple of Lane's close friends, Lane got the dog when it was just 6 weeks old. The pit bull is now two years old, and they say the dog was very friendly and never harmed anyone. They say Lane raised the animal in a loving way and taught it to be gentle and kind.

"The pit bull is now two years old, and they say the dog was very friendly and never harmed anyone. They say Lane raised the animal in a loving way and taught it to be gentle and kind."

How ridiculous in this.

Loving way by chaining the dog up outside? This dog was showing aggression, and this person tried to resolve that by chaining the dog outside, making a bad problem worse. Instead of doing what needed to be done and euthanizing a vicious dog.

This dog could easily have killed a neighbor.

Another person who bought a fighting dog without realizing that genetics overrules "training."

Pit bulls are not pets.

The victim isn't a defenseless child or infant, nor is the victim elderly, the victim is a 25 year old MAN! This is significant. A full grown man was unable to escape or fend off a dog. Amazing power and tenacity our white, English and Irish ancestors selectively and successfully instilled in this breed. How terrible! Pit bulls are remnants of a past time now illegal everywhere. BSL works.

I can tell you pretty much everything you need to know about this attack in these simple words: 2 year old pit bull.

It's the magical age. Sexual maturity, when the nature of the beast takes over, and the dog is no longer a puppy. There's a reason most pits don't survive past the age of 18 months. It's not because people are dog fighting.

Only a simple paragraph for this pit bull fatality -- protect your own so to speak. 25-year old Justin Lane is gone, buried in some Dillon County drawer, I imagine on behalf of his family.

6th South Carolina Piticide since 2004...Of course there is no breed specific problem!

A little self-regulation from the Pit Breeding community please!

It is not wrong to breed away from explosive Dog Aggression.
