Not all of the people that own and worship pit bulls are assholes.

But if an asshole owns a dog, it usually is a pitbull.

I own a pit mix and she is the sweetest creature I've ever met, and I'm not just saying that because she's mine. So incredibly loyal, loving, affectionate, playful, and awesome. I love her as much as anyone else that I love. My cold little feets are wedged under her right now for warmth.

Most of the other pits I've lived with or taken care of have been angels. Many have a playful stubbornness to them that's hilarious, and tend to act dumb and goofy and less intelligent than they actually are.

But yeah they're animals and some of them come from fucked up places and are violent and can kill people. Still, I don't know how one could vote an entire breed of animal crap.

I feel less threatened by a pitbull showing its teeth than a human tweaking statistical data to prove something grotesque. The impulse to euthanize an animal is the same lower brain function that led said animal to rip someone's face off - I'm not even saying that euthanasia is wrong, but they'll never admit that they feel threatened and defensive, exactly like a pitbull.

Pitties are Not Crap.

What does one critter say to another critter, anyways?

You're a superhero, or a future president, or a psychopath, or an armchair man of principle, or just full of shit.

^Those videos of the dogs protecting their treats are pretty much any dog (especially male dogs) ever. Even my poodle does that and he's the biggest wuss in the world. It's basically an empty threat, not that I'd push my luck with any dog. Accidental bites still hurt.

Most pitbulls are Not Crap. And frankly most of my 'dogs who are generally cool but are capable of going batshit out of nowhere' experiences have been with greyhounds..

What does "trained rescue dogs at local no-kill humane society" get me?

Also none of the videos you posted are rabid animals, #3 is just food aggression and even then he's all bark. Hence the owner laughing.

There's a chop shop parading as a Sunoco in downtown Columbus; a grey pitbull guards it when they do business at night. My bandmates used to work a block away from it, so I've seen her out enough. She's chased me three times. Since I haven't heard anything in the news about someone being mauled downtown, I imagine she's also more bark than bite, but I never wanted to find out for sure. The best nights are when she either doesn't notice me or doesn't bother, opting to sleep by the garage door instead, protecting what she's been trained to protect, trying to be the best dog she can to make her total fucking asshole of an owner happy.

I can figure her out, I don't see any malice behind it.

I can probably apply that same empathy to FMs who want to ban pibbles - they're just trying to protect what they need to protect - but the position is so reflexive and arrogant that why even bother.

This is the first post I've made in this thread while sober - go me!

I see your poInt. I'd defend any pet that was being put down for purely statistical reasons. It would have to actually attack someone first. Like Matt Damon says: "it would be a case-by-case basis."
