The time has come && gone for excuses and blaming the dog breed of pitbulls that seems to have generated mass hysteria among people these days! It is our duty as a people to protect them rather than allow them to be brutalized both in the physical sense and morally as they are phenomenal dogs and it is time not to take action against their lives and determine that they are awful just through a few stories on the news who choose not to ever show the loving side of these dogs! It is not the blame of the dog but of the humans of have mistreated them that are to blame && the repercussions of those actions should be severe not slight as ultimately  it is without saying that it is the humans doing not the breed.  Do what you must to protect these precious pits and fight for stronger laws against the owners rather than banning the dogs
