I remember when this happened. She deserves this and more. The womwan showed no remorse and blamed the victim for the attack. Justice served. Thanks for this update Tom.

Mixed feelings on this one...considering the murderers and rapists that get out after a few years.. not to mention the murder that has taken place in Iraq!!

This is another Breed Specific "crime", is more about the dog involved, and how the dog was trained/or not trained and undo care and attention. The same thing as driving drunk/or allowing a drunk to drive. People must start to understand if you want a guard dog you must take the responsibility of the care and control of such animal. I emphasize "RESPONSIBILITY"!!!

Once again, it brings home the point that the owner is responsible. This is as it should be. Thanks, Tom.

Joycey...I agree with you. Besides, this woman and her husband raised these dogs to attack and allowed this dog to attack the neighbor. It was one of the most horrendous attacks by a dog. I don't blame the dog because it was bred to kill and hate. Yes, justice was served.

I watched this on Court T.V.!
I was shocked to see this man and wife smirk! Awful, just awful. No respect!
These 2 even adopted the 30 something skin head that had the dogs.
They all knew what these dogs were capable of doing!
I don't know if this was here say, but one lady said that these were the same dogs
that were at a ranch up north where they were being trained to kill small animals and
being rewarded for it! This included any kind of animal that could not fight back!
They should go to prison for the rest of their lives for what they did to this lady and these dogs! There are no bad dogs, only bad human companions!

oh yes i remember this one. knoller claimed the dogs attacked whipple because whipple was a lesbian and the dogs could "smell" that. i think this was an indirect attack on gays by knoller ~ adopting a white supremacist, come on! the dogs were victims too, of people who trained them ruthlessly. these particular dogs are noted for aggressiveness to begin with (i forget the breed at the moment ~ maybe somebody can help me here?). justice served for knoller ~ perhaps this will wipe that hateful smirk off her face ~

knoller sort of killed the dogs too as they were "destroyed" after this attack. she doesn't seem to care about much of anything except her own satisfaction ~

I feel she got off lightly. In my opinion this was a hate crime and murder.
When you have an aggressive dog you take all kinds of precautions. For the dogs protection if nothing else. I still think she said sic it to the dogs and once that being said to two large aggressive dogs, oh hell no she couldn't hold them back. Nikki Kaye dragged me UP Slater Hill at Purdue when Match Box 20 was here. I had her tied to my ankle just in case,,, oh yeah that was one of my smarter moves and so embarrassing:)

Knoller deserves every year in prison, she get. There are No mean, evil animals. Only humans are to blame raising some breeds as a murder-machine. I also hope that this woman is never allowed to take care of dogs again for her entire life! She is a dangerous person and she will always be!
Thanks Tom!
