    How can a lowly nothing sheriff have the power over life and death.SICKENING

  2. I think it is so retarded that this is going on…. If that was the case I know many dogs that should be banned…. Growing up I was chased and almost bitten by many different kinds of dogs. One dog that I have never had a negative encounter with is pit bulls. And I own some. I think what everyone is doing is wrong. Its like a holocaust all over again just with pit bulls. And honestly once they extinct pit bulls it may be YOUR pet, friend, family whatever you call them next….. Think about that…. Everyone is so quick to report a pit bull attack but nothing else…. My friends daughter got mauled my an Akita that belong to her mother and that her daughter knew. But I aint see that on the news or reported! I just think this whole thing is stupid. I been raising and breeding pit bulls for going on 6 years and never had a problem with them in any kind of way!
