Justin, I just read the article you mentioned. Firstly, my condolences to little John Harvard's family. May God rest his soul. Now to the issue in question. Pit bulls. You failed to mention that the dog in question- who belongs to John Harvard's neighbours- was NOT ON A LEASH and there are NO LAWS in regards to leashes in the vicinity. The neighbours admitted that they 'feel responsible' and so they bloody well should. In future, can you give us the WHOLE story instead of your own misguided agenda? Thank you.

@Justin Vale, please do some research on dogs that kill before you make such erronously blanket statements regarding pit bulls. Pit bull are a part of dogs that have killed humans, but so are Saint Bernards, Dobermans, German shepherds and in one case even a Yorkshire terrier. Sadly the media just seems to focus on pit bulls. In all cases where dogs have attacked and killed people their is one commonality. The dogs were allowed to run loose, had been kept chained up in their companions yards. My heartfelt condolences to the Harvard family for the loss of their precious five year son John - R I P. I fault the owners of dogs that bite or kill a lot more than I do the dogs, regardless of breed! Those who have dog companions need to know their dogs and how to treat appropriately. My three shih tzu companions are walked at least twice a day and we encounter children, adults etc..... But they have NEVER been aggressive towards anyone. They are on their leashes and I pull up short when I see people coming towards us. Some people can be skittish, or downright afraid of them. I smile at the person and keep my companions close at my side. Not that they would bite, but out of respect for the person who is afraid of dogs. Our companions give us so much, but we need to take responsibility for them when out amongst people!
