I hope Mr McSweeney survives these catastrophic injuries.

Every attack should result in a mandatory seizure/euthanasia.

"Perceived expert" pit nutter gets nailed in a response:

ImBigMo 40 minutes ago in reply to JJ3
You are so full of fertilizer with your "don't blame the breed" mantra, it isn't even funny. Pit bulls were responsible for 100% of ALL off-premise dog attack human fatalities in a recent year, I believe it was 2008. Quick defending these killers. You are obviously a moron, that's why you work in a dog pound.

the pit nutter's name has been released, DEANNE LOU BLITCH and she has quite the record, bad checks, theft, judgement against her from state farm auto insurance and her credit union. i'm guessing roy or the state of florida will be picking up the tab for this scuffle.

meanwhile, the pit nutter's brother DAN DICKERSON speaks
I heard there was a brouhaha over here. I know he is in bad shape

this is jimmy's turf. i bet he is bidding on this one so he can slip in and give it the old white wash treatment.

Excellent call Craven. This is indeed Jim (James) Crosby whitewash turf. I wonder if his resignation as Bay County Animal Control Director has affected his self-appointed fatal dog attack investigator status?

well, the pit nutters have spoken and they say the frankenmaulers are pit bulls.

"There's a constant problem with the dogs," she said. "They are always running the street. They came down here and were growling and barking at the door. We have pit bulls, but she is the kind of person who gives them a bad name."

Mr. McSweeney's injuries are life changing. He will not work in his garden again, he will require assistance with the most basic activities of daily living. If Mr. McSweeney's family is unable to provide this care, he may live out his life in a long term care facility.

How can this man be compensated for his losses? Who will pay for his care? If the dog owner is currently being sued over a previous dog bite her insurance is not likely to cover any of Mr. McSweeney's medical bills. Insurance, when it exists for a pit bull owner, only covers the first bite.

How VERY sad this is.

The Urban Dictionary has quite a few definitions for "Blitch"

now DEANNE BLITCH is claiming that she wasn't home at the time of the mauling, the frankenmaulers belonged to a friend and she doesn't know how they escaped.

why hasn't she been arrested?

2007 Putnam County Pit Bull Article...Putnam County does not directly adopt out Pits due to liability issues:

"Pit bulls or pit mixes are implicated in two-thirds of bite cases in the county, said Paul Studivant."

friends say roy is on life support. it's not looking good.

Sometimes I wonder what these nitwits see in these murderous canines. These dogs just need to be loved and socialized, they just need good homes. Give me a break! Idiots!

A trusted comment sent to DogsBite via email:

I know Mr. Dickerson. He is my neighbor and is actually a nice person. I know that his soundbite came off sounding cavalier, but he actually would have been the one to shoot those dogs if he had arrived before the deputies. We have had several discussions on this subject. We both have a few farm animals and farming makes you a pragmatist. We do not suffer an aggressive animal to live.

Orlando Sentinel article!!
On the pit bull lobby quote, "It's not the dog, it's the owner"....

"Most of which is complete nonsense. It's no mistake that pits are the preferred dog of gang-bangers, drug dealers and dog-fighting enthusiasts. Their power and tenacity when attacking is legendary. But whether pit bulls are dangerous as a function of irresponsible owners or breeding is less relevant than the terror they're inflicting on Florida's population.

More than two decades ago, legislators passed a law shielding pit bulls and other specific breeds from local regulation. We'd like to hear lawmakers who continue to back that law explain their reasoning to Roy McSweeney.

If he lives."

Citizens must apply pressure to their elected officials to change the law.

Mr McSweeney passed away today at 4:48 PM. He is the 168th American Killed by a Pit Bull since the Dog Lobby manipulated the CDC panel in 1998.

Ummm...Putnam County appears to be on the hook. This is UNACCEPTABLE and the injuries were INDEED severe:

Cormier's mother, Rita Garrett, contends her son wouldn't have been attacked if the dogs weren't in the home after the attack on Floyd. She also said that if the dogs were removed after last month's attack on her son, McSweeney would have been spared. Cormier had surgery on both arms and received 40 stitches.

Depraved Indifference
To constitute depraved indifference, the defendant's conduct must be so wanton, so deficient in a moral sense of concern, so lacking in regard for the life or lives of others, and so blameworthy as to warrant the same criminal liability as that which the law imposes upon a person who intentionally causes a crime. Depraved indifference focuses on the risk created by the defendant’s conduct, not the injuries actually resulting.

depraved indifference charges NOW!

in spite of the fact that neighbors that WHO OWN PIT BULLS have said that these killers ARE pit bulls, idiot toellner is raising questions about the breed!

247th American killed by a Pit Bull since 1980 and the 22nd Floridian Piticide...

Putnam County needs to pay up on this facilitated manslaughter...especially in light of the fact that they don't adopt out Pits due to the special liability. They knew and have calculated the risk.
