  1. Man, the connections in the criminal underground of dog-fighting are vast and varied! I think I need a chart like they make on Law and Order to help keep track of all these connecting dots! I am just sorry that the Arizona Daily Star does not allow comments. It would be a real treat to see all the nutters coming out of the woodwork against this action. They always say "It's the owners" but when the owner's get the shaft, they always cry foul, for some ridiculous reason or another.

  2. the connections drawn between these players located across the country is a perfect example of how dog fighting meets the definition of organized crime.
    the criminal justice system should treat it as such.

  3. Yes, they do. They give lip service to "blame the deed, not the breed", but when push comes to shove, all they really want is to be able to own ugly, nasty dogs with no consequences when they break the law or their dogs injure or kill someone. I hope we see more property seizures like this in the future. Too bad it can't be done to owners whose dogs rack up huge medical bills for victims. That's no less criminal.
