In answer to your question, as I understand it the coroner can usually identify it as a pit-bull byRead More the teeth marks on the victims corpse.
Shirley B. Backus April 16, 2014 at 11:57 pm
We should remember that the pit bulls of yesterday are not the same as the pit bulls of today. WhenRead More they were legally used for fighting, the most aggressive puppies were trained and bred for their aggressiveness. Now, the sweetest, gentlest puppies are bred. The aggressive puppies are spayed/neutered and extensively trained to behave. However, there are still those dogs that are naturally aggressive. Without specialized training, these dogs can be acquired by drug dealers and other criminals - either for protection from each other or cops, or to be bred and sold to the unsuspecting public. Such a pit bull, raised in a proper home, will be gentle and sweet in its own family, but an unfortunate incident can trigger a brutal assault - such as a yard full of cats. Owners of dogs of all breeds should know the physical capabilities of their pets and keep them under control. When any dog gets out of control, it's the owner's fault.

"Now only the sweetest and gentlest puppies are bred" "drug dealers need them forRead More protection from cops" "an unfortunate incident can occur causing a brutal attack" WTF did I just read ?? Folks, this is ghetto mentality 101.

Thanks for the weather report. It seems to be more detailed, and more accurate, than the ones I getRead More on line.

the war on women is republicans trying to force women into involuntary servitude. I have flaggedRead More this vile propaganda. And will continue to follow up with patch to pull this idiotic post off here.
Gretchen Robinson April 16, 2014 at 11:07 pm
GOP, so stupid and tone deaf about how to reach young women (to brainwash them....to late DuckRead More Dynasty guys). So they went through Mitt's "Binders of Women" and found Phyllis Schlaffly who pitched her propaganda about how all women secretly want to marry men so they wouldn't have to work and could stay home and breed. Get this claptrap off PATCH.
joseph esposito April 16, 2014 at 11:23 pm
wo=MEN can be brainwashed? Oh? How credible are wo=MEN as voters, if they can be brainwashed? You'reRead More right about Phyllis Schlaffly's propaganda about how wo=MEN, secretly want to marry MEN so they won't have to work and can stay home and breed. Now wo=MEN secretly want to marry MEN so they can divorce them and take all their money, and yes still breed, and on the MANS paycheck!

Agreed but the problem we are running into here is at the end of the tragedy, you are told the dogRead More belongs to the child (usually a teenager) and the parents refuse to take any responsibility at all. Even to the extent of telling authorities themselves to put the dog down. It's disgusting the measures some take to avoid responsibility and get away with it! You are correct the laws are there for the law abiding citizens, the rest couldn't careless.
Jack Baillargeron April 16, 2014 at 04:57 pm
Doesn't matter, If the teen lives in the home or one the parents property they are responsible.Read More Their home owners insurance company can be sued as well. Putting the dog down does not negate the incident. It is like destroying the knife used to stab somebody. The stabber is still responsible. I am not a lawyer or anything like that but read enough cases and know enough victims as a Retired firefighter to know you can win on these things easily. Might not be able to get money from some of these people but you can get them banned from being able to own an animal again at the least in my opinion.
Jack Baillargeron April 16, 2014 at 05:05 pm
Would point out also that is the reason for getting leash law or town ordinances. They merely stateRead More the rule and have no age limitation. I have seen children walking a 40lb dog as young as 8 to 10. There is no way they could control that dog unless the dog has been very well trained along with the child being trained so the dog will obey it. Problem with society right now is that no one takes self-responsibility for their own action anymore (well any criminal activity or incidents like this). Idiot owners like to blame the dog also to negate their responsibility. Start throwing them in jail with sentences they would give to a person for doing what the dog does and you would have deterent. But there will always be some excuse. It sickens me to no end.

Take $110.00, deduct the sales tax, then calculate 15% of the pre-tax total and that is your tip.Read More What retarded advice to suggest tipping 15% of the sales tax...does it get served with a side of fries? LMAO!!!!!!!! Go back to school.
Mathnasium - Math Learning Center April 14, 2014 at 07:45 am
Thank you for your comment. I am only trying to show a typical example for calculating tips andRead More sales tax. I'm merely showing a student how he/she can take percentage of a number different ways in real life. Granted there are some people tipping based on the entire bill (including tax), and there are other people tipping based on the pretaxed bill. But I will make the update to the post, so it becomes clearer. Thank you.
