Pit Bulls know they are THE face of extinction. All that remains is where they make their final stand. Say NO to BSL!

She' a peice of work. I wrote her the last time when she suggested that all pit bulls should be shot. I was polite and she never once answered my questions over 2 replies. :rolleyes2:

I like a challenege but she's feeding on this and I refuse to feed her. She's just like my mayor. Media whore. :x

Sadly she's not the only person that feels this way, and this isn't the first article I read from her. From what I vaguely remember :? I believe she is the woman that stated she'd received threats, harrassing phone calls, plenty of vulgarity and obscenity from the so called "pit bull" owners. I find this sad, and I'm sure the parade of emails, knocks, etc. have only caused her to increase her media coverage and negativity towards "pit bulls" and their owners. I think she likes the bombarding emails, and to know that she's "pissed" people off. People like her refuse to see the positive light despite the negative, and they refuse to listen. :( They like the drama, and when it dies down the find something else to fire it up again. Her article makes me sick... Just my opinion of course.

What a tool.

You never know when it will strike, but there comes a moment at work when you know that you just aren't going to do anything productive for the rest of the day.

her reply to me and my email to her:

You may be right. Maybe the problem is irresponsible owner. Frankly, when
people are being mauled by these dogs, the reason for the carnage doesn't
matter. It's a public safety issue. kerry

She saw right around it, what the hell?

How many breeds of dog do the idiots of society have to come up with before they realize it needs to be an owner issue??
