Denver, CO: America's Dog-Killers

Pit-bull ban may reveal unwarranted prejudice

Apparently, a pit bull killed a kid. Denver decided that the proper reaction to this tragedy was to round up all the pit bulls and kill them. That'll learn 'em!

We'll just ignore the obvious: "...there have been fatal attacks in the U.S. by Pomeranians, that half a dozen attacks that caused death or serious injuries were by cocker spaniels." Nope, it's gotta be the breed. They're born bad.

Just like their owners, perhaps?
"There appears a racial end of this," Bill Suro says.

"Look at the dogs that have been impounded, and the surnames of their owners. . . . They aren't killing dogs from Cherry Creek. They pick on the easiest people to pick on, the ones who give up easiest," he said, adding that he has forwarded this claim to the American Civil Liberties Union.
