  2. Nice!

    "Certainly most pit bulls never bite anyone. By the same token, the vast majority of lightning bolts never kill and only a small handful of sharks ever bite a human. But that does not prove that lightning bolts and sharks are safe."

    "The "Pit n' Proud" mission statement posted on its own Facebook page declares that it is dedicated to the defense of "the American Pit Bull Terrier and related breeds" (the italics are mine). Bottom line — you can't embrace "mixes" and "related breeds" when they're behaving well but then turn around and disavow them when they kill someone."

    I don't think the Nutters expected such a detailed response that calls them out as "in denial" and guilty of tossy-turny logic:-)

  3. Pit-Advocates…Fight for the Right to Bite!

    If they spent 1/10th of their energy and resources going after the breeders and dog fighters pumping out dangerous Pits, they might actually help society.

    Instead, they demonize victims and are actively saving dogs involved in attacks. Then in the next sentence, give assurances of safety because "Dogfighters culled manbiters"

    All under the guise a tax free status.
