at 30 to 50 thousand per year it takes to keep a person in prison it would not be sustainable to jail them. besides we kill over a million pits per year in shelters because pitbull lovers keep breeding an unwanted dog and then throwing them away.
nyc and los angeles between them alone kill upwards of 500 pits per day. what's the lives of three dogs compared to the millions of pits already killed and the millions more that will be put down?

For those of you who don't believe finances should be used to imprison people who commit unspeakable acts of animal cruelty - would you allow them around your kids? Oh, I know, you're going to say "They have nothing in common", oh, but, they do - there have been multiple studies done since the 1980's proving that there is a correlation between animal abuse and child (including elder and significant other) abuse - people like this are rarely changed, all they can be is warehoused, and to stop them, I know I'm willing to pay financially so that I don't have to pay in any other way.

Noted and signed. I don't care HOW much it costs to imprison monsters like this. It needs to be done. As heretical as it may sound, if we're not going to do true rehab -- and many can't be, let's face it, maybe prisons should go from being somewhat comfy to a place one NEVER wants to return again, filled with hard labor and no free time. If they will do this to dogs, they'll do it to humans.
