I put several rounds of .45 through one a few years ago when serving a warrant. That dog died right at my feet.
Do I hate them? Nah.
Do I have a healthy respect for what they can do? You'd better beleive it.
Having responded to 2 deaths by pit and seeing the carnage, I aint playing around.
I'm not prejudiced though,whether it's a Pit Bull,German Shepard, Lab or a pshyco Chiuahua tyring to killl me...I'm an equal opportunity shooter.
