Is this happening with other breeds and just not making the news? Or is it really only happening with pit bulls? I try and try to support the police 100%, but something needs to be done.

I guarantee that any dog that is shot by a LEO becomes a Pit Bull or Pit mix when the media gets involved, regardless of its actual parentage. Same thing happens when a dog bites. We've all seen it a million times.

And you're right, something needs to be done. That something usually involves owners properly containing their animals so we don't have to shoot them to keep from getting our balls torn off (been there). But "Owner Fails to Control Agitated Dog, Police Shoot in Self Defense" doesn't sell papers like "Cops Kill Family Dog".

The journalists of the American news media overwhelmingly have sub-kindergarten levels of intelligence coupled with the scruples of Bernie Madoff. As a general rule, I believe nothing they produce.
