Have we had enough death by pit bulls yet? I know I have.

I hate saying rest in peace to these little innocent children, because their deaths are so brutal. This all could have been avoided if pit bulls were not pets.

I'm a hater of pit bulls. I hate that they kill children. I hate that pit bulls have advocates. I hate that those advocates are okay with toddlers getting mauled to death.

I'm sorry little guy. We failed you as a society because some people believe pit bulls deserve a better life than what you got.

How many more? How many more children do we have to witness mauled to death by pit bulls before we say, NO MORE?!
