    I'd like to see photos of the dogs before I buy into the "pit bulls attack again" scenario. Way too many people call every dog that does something like this a PB. No, I don't own PBs but I do know the ignorance of the majority of the population.

    So a guy saving a kid is subject to the AG's wrath, but a reporter breaking the law to make an ignorant presentation is good to go.

    They're the best dogs by far, when a responsible person owns them. When stupid people own a shi-tzu the worst that happens is it gets fat, lazy and barks a lot. When a stupid person owns a pitbull, with locking jaws, it's a different story.

    True enough regarding the ignorance of both the average person and the news media. But regardless of the breed, any dog attacking a child deserves to be shot.

    Agreed. Why did the article need to single out that the dogs were pitbulls. Why could they not say something like, "3 dogs attack young boy" or something. Any dog, poodle to pitbull can turn violent and mean. Just hate the single-ing out of a specific breed.

    +1 on the neighbor though doing what needed done. Glad the kid is safe and just bite wounds.

    Man shoots dog while mauling child-may be charged

    I'm not the best with words, so I am having difficulty coming up with an appropiate one: ludicrous, lunacy, idiotic, stupid?

    Some of the comments are very good.

    It's really a shame that DC is filled with...well, the people who live in DC. If it weren't for them, it would be a great town.

    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.

    I don't think it's because you think you are not good with words. I can't find stong enough words either to describe the stupidity of these people.

    Who should they be prosecuting? The man who let his pitbulls attack an 11 year old child or the man who saved the child's life?



    If you answered the man who helped the boy, you should be a DC prosecutor!

    If it's all as the news initially reported it, then he almost certainly saved the kid's life. He'll live with that one the rest of his life, much to his satisfaction I'm sure.

    I can almost see a jury of peers (even 12 average dolts) realizing this much: a strong case can be made for a few sticky firearms statutes being a good trade when someone's life is on the line. If they've got to decide this guy was a bad guy for doing what he did, they might well have troubles doing it. I'm hopeful that at least a couple sensible people with that perspective could be on a jury of 12. If they can see the senselessness of essentially penalizing someone for saving a life ... then perhaps they can begin to realize the utter, abject lunacy of such anti-weapon statutes in the first place.

    Unbelievable. Sends a clear message to everyone that you are better off watching the child get mauled and die then to intervene because you might not be able to do so from your property line.

    Yes, it does.

    And that's the hook I'm hoping that just one or two of the 12 will see. The People in juries need to stand up to this sort of crap, big-time. Am assuming that even in DC there is a "competing evils" clause in the statutes. One would think that the defense of the life of a child (or any other) would be sufficient cause to bend a few questionable proscriptions against this or that line he stepped over.

    Gads, one could go nuts thinking how lunatic things have become. Once upon a time, we'd all of us see the sense in doing what that guy did, honoring justice by disallowing his lynching.
