Bitpulls have a "street creed / gangster" connotation in many cultural circles. It's very much like wearing a Raiders hoodie in the hood. So, essentially, owning a bitpull is more of a statement than befriending man's best friend.
Personally, I think they are dangerous. Yet, the "oh, you just don't understand them" argument is still pervasive. Yeah, wait until it's your kid, or friend that gets attacked.

My brother who lives back east owns a pit bull, he is single and has no kids. he can't even go to a dog park because the stupid dog is so aggressive to other dogs. he has to lie and say it's a "pit bull MIX" in order for others not to get nervous around the dog. DUH! If you have to lie about the breed of your dog, doesn't that tell you something? I doubt he will ever have kids so no problem there but I do worry that dog will one day hurt another dog or a person. I rarely talk to my brother but have heard from my mom that she has "babysat" for the dog and she has to keep him in a crate, otherwise the dog will tear up everything in the house. And it's a 7 year old dog, not a puppy.
I don't know why these dogs are legal, they do so much harm, why are they legal to own? I feel awful for this local family who had their dog murdered by the pit bull and they really should get some kind of compensation for the whole family to get therapy for many years to come because of it. Of all the breeds, why does one have to choose THIS breed that is known to be so dangerous? Just awful. My heart breaks for the boy who found his dog murdered like that. Again that family who owned the pit bull knew the potential and they ought to pay for the a lifetime of therapy to help the family recover emotionally.
I'm just wondering what it's going to take to get these vicious animals to be illegal to be kept as pets.

My sister had a Pit for twelve years and it was a loving wonderful family pet. I have a friend who had a golden retriever who they nicknamed Cojo and had to get rid of it. My cousin was bitten on the face by a Disney looking Dalmatian, he required multiple plastic surgeries.
I like dogs but I think all dogs should be muzzled in public.
