    Fine the owner and put down the vicious dog. How much longer do we have to tolerate this terror because a few irresponsible owners want “bad assed” dogs?

    If I am ever bitten by your dog I will sue you into the stone age, please have home owners insurance.

    Not all Pit Bulls are bad assed dogs! Ours is a family pet. You MUST be a liberal to be so concerned with sueing into the stone age! This is terror? Are you kidding me? Osama Bin Ladin is a terrorist you idiot! PS…why not use your name rather than 5th Estate?
