A South Carolina mother had both arms amputated and her colon removed after she was mauled by two pit bulls and a mixed breed dog earlier this week. Kyleen Waltman, 38, was savagely attacked by the pit bulls while she was out on a walk Monday morning, WYFF reported. (snip) A good Samaritan saw Waltman being mauled by the dogs and was able to scare the animals off by firing his gun into the air.

Wait for it. "They're not naturally vicious dogs. Its how you raise them." BS. They are vicious dogs who like to kill. And they seem to be owned mostly by white trash who cant compensate anyone for the damage their dog does.

A Good Samaritan, yes. But firing his gun in the air? I would have shot all three dogs dead!

They represent 6% of the population but account for half of all acts of violence. But we shouldn't discriminate against them. Oh, right . . . should specify that I'm talking about pit bulls.

#1...have you even been around any of them? I have. In my daughter's home with two small kids. The pit and they "maul" each other daily. A better dog, I've never owned. OP: Let's change yours to read, "guns.. too many bad stories about them.." What is the instrument of death preferred by bad guys everywhere? How many homicides, suicides and maimings involve guns? Bad stories, daily. On the heels of #1, guns don't kill people, people do...right? There's always more to these stories, and GWP is very good and not providing context or full understanding. It's a continual stream of BOMBSHELL boob bait.

Yet again dogs pay the price for irresponsible ownership. It’s not how they’re raised, it’s how they’re treated. Many of Vick’s dogs were rehabilitated and went on to live long happy lives with families including young children. I followed several of them on Facebook and I believe all of them have passed now. I know this is redundant info but we have 7 dogs. All neutered or spayed, all well fed and indoors if they’re not outside in our fenced yard. We joke they have better medical care than we do. We have 1 pit, 1 American bully, 1 Akita, 1 mastiff mix, a boxer, a pit mix, and a blue heeler mix. Several of these breeds are headstrong but, not to toot my own horn, well behaved. Not perfect but I know they chances of them mauling someone are very low. Not impossible, of course, they are animals. I’d bet a lot of money these dogs are underfed, intact and poorly socialized. That’s not their fault. A well fed, neutered and socialized dog is a potato usually found on the couch.

Poor lady. She was practically facing a wolf pack, and lost her arms trying to protect her face and throat. Three large, vicious dogs would make quick work of any unarmed human, regardless of the person's fighting skills. Some British commandos in Afghanistan came under heavy enemy fire from several positions inside a house, neutralized one, but had to take cover from another. They released their heavily trained Belgian Malinois (similar to a German shepherd), and the dog went in to find the shooter. A moment later the shooting suddenly stopped. When the commandos went inside, they found the terrorist savage on the floor in a gigantic pool of blood, his throat ripped completely out. Goo'boy! In Las Cruces, NM a female police officer was suddenly attacked by two dumpster divers' pit bull*, and had to shoot the dog, which flopped around the parking lot in agony for minutes before eventually having to be taken to the vet and euthanized. Same as the Las Cruces officer, if I were attacked by a large dog, the dog would get shot. This particular dog jumped directly in the officer's face. Fortunately, she was quick on the trigger and didn't get mauled. * (Somewhat graphic: a pit bull that attacked the wrong person)

Settle down, #4. These stories always — ALWAYS — involve a few select breeds, and pit bulls the vast majority. There are so many wonderful breeds to choose, but the owners wanna be “tough guys” by getting the most dangerous breed.

Another in the news, with much of the attack caught on video. They're strong and stupid and selectively bred for violence, and sometimes something will set them off and they'll attack for no reason at all, whether the person be the owner, a child, or a stranger. This is not a creature that deserves to live.

People have no problem acknowledging that certain breeds have certain traits, as in beagles for hunting rabbits, and Australian sheepdogs for herding, but they have a real problem seeing pitbulls were bred with the instinct to fight. That disconnect is in spite of the evidence.

I hate the breed and the whole attitude it reflects. Had the grandkids down at the lakeside park last week, and some dude chained one to a lamppost. You best believe I had my eyes on it the whole time, as we were getting into the car. He was a white guy, and just oozed "I need something to make me look tough."

Also, the gun analogy does not apply here. A batch of defective guns that work unpredictably (say, firing multiple rounds at a time when they're not supposed to) are recalled and repaired by the manufacturer right away because that's dangerous, and there's not a gun anywhere that decides on its own to get up off the table and open fire. Same with cars. Cars that endanger fellow motorists by suddenly accelerating get dealt with pretty quickly, as would cars that have brakes that don't work.

There's a reason why you aren't allowed to own a pet salt water crocodile, king cobra, or rattle snake and take them for a walk in the neighborhood. They are dangerous and can kill people. Yes, all dogs can attack folks. But, pit bulls have a greater bite force that other dogs and are bred to kill. They are killers. All pit bulls should be killed. Just a way to make the world a better place.

I'm with those who would have shot them on the spot. After seeing what they were doing to that Woman, why would you think that it wouldn't happen again if they were "saved". No thank you. I would have shot them on the spot. Might have saved the woman's life! And having Pit Bulls around small children is like a accident waiting to happen. Many, many stories of Pits turning on their Owners or their children and mauling them. Like Playing with dynamite!

Pitties are dogs, dogs can bite, maul, and kill. My husband has been bit twice by German Shepherds. My niece had disfiguring wounds made on her face when she was 4 by a vicious Golden Retriever. Bad owners = bad dogs. I have known good Pitties and bad. Many moons ago (well over a decade) I was trying to get the authorities to do something about a house that everyone in the neighborhood knew was fighting dogs. It was just horrendous. One of their dogs, on a chain slipped under the fence but was still on that massive chain those monsters who fight dogs use. The pup was a female, sweet baby, not much more than a puppy intended for endless breeding I am sure. She just looked up at me frightened, almost pleading for some kindness, whining and wagging her little tail. Broke my heart as I love animals and I knew her fate. We eventually got the bastid who was abusing these poor animals hauled off to jail for animal abuse and also surprise he was dealing drugs, he was a college "professor" at a local state Black college. Sadly, they euthanized all the dogs as there was no rehad system for pitties back then. We had a pittie growing up that was a snuggle bug, not a mean bone in his body. Probably the single most patient dog I have ever known around kids. I never heard him so much as bark. My sister has a rescue pittie who is also a sweet love bug, she especially loves kids. My daughter lays all over her and the pup loves it! My MIL's house is next to some folks of foreign origin (machismo types who NEVER fix their dogs) that have 4 intact male pitties they let run loose. They pinned me against my car sitting in my MIL's driveway one day while I was trying to help my MIL with her house chores. Thankfully the idiot owner saw this and was finally able to persuade them to not hurt me. I take a gun and a huge molded plastic walking stick with me when I go there now, I never go alone anymore, and my MIL is now in assisted living Thank the Good Lord!! Those dogs will eventually kill someone because the police and animal control do nothing after repeated calls. Sadly, fences and guns are the only solution to stupid dog owners.

We had one for 13 years and she was the sweetest dog we’ve ever had. Any dog can be made to be vicious. It IS the owners who are the problem. The only time I have ever been bitten by a dog, it was a dachshund.

When my son was 7, he was attacked by the "sweetest" pit bull ever. The owner was shocked. No idea what happened. The only thing scarier than a pit bull is some owner who thinks he has complete control of the dog. They don't. They never will. Dogs are animals and will always revert to that in circumstances we can't predict. I think they are beautiful dogs but they are like Russian roulette - you never know when one will go off. Sadly, I think they should be banned.

#1, in my area they are mainly owned by bLACK trash to guard the drug stash. How so many people can defend the breed and blame the carnage on owners puzzles me. I will go to my grave with the image of being backed up against a brick wall by two of them with lips peeled, teeth bared, and ears pulled back. They ate a hole through a wooden privacy fence to roam freely. God was on my side that day.

James Dickey’s (author of “Deliverance”) daughter wrote a book a few years ago about Pit Bulls. She wanted to get to the bottom of whether or not the breed was inherently dangerous. She found that there are myths that surround the breed like their bite force (there’s no way to measure bite force accurately but no anatomical reason to believe Pit Bull’s are any more powerful than any other breed their size) or even how one can identify a true Pit Bull as the term is used almost universally for dogs of a particular look regardless of their DNA. A century ago true American Pit Bulls were very popular family dogs and thought to be especially good companions for children. Because of their gladiatorial appearance and the ease and inexpense of obtaining one they eventually became popular with people in tough neighborhoods who often abused them by poor breeding and socialization and still do. Like a lot of dog lovers I have a heart for the breed but would never adopt one because of the fear they instill in other people, sometimes for reasons that are justified. Were anything to happen, how could owners defend against claims of recklessness in the present climate? As is so often true, the tragedy is that humans are to blame.

Border Collies are genetically predisposed to herd and Goldens are genetically predisposed to retrieve. (Ok?) Pit Bulls are genetically predisposed to maul other animals to death. ( No? Despite statistical evidence?). How about: Black Americans are genetically predisposed to be taller than other races. (Ok?) How about Asians and academic achievement? (NO? Despite statistical evidence?). Reality can be uncomfortable... denial helps. (Full disclosure: I am nether a Border Collie, Black, nor Asian).

23’s post made me recall something. The full name is pit bull terrier. The terrier part of them is where they get their drive to hunt and kill. A rat terrier can kill 100’s of rats in a short amount of time. As much as I love dogs I would have shot these or any other dog attacking a person. We’ll always have a pittie in our pack, to each their own.

I own a 10+ year old Minature Pincher who probably weighs less than 10 lbs. Her heritage is a ratter. She is a killer without any hesitation. Baby cottontails don't last long in my yard. A couple of days ago I heard a dove hit a window. A few minutes later there she is with a bird almost as big as she is in her mouth trying to get in the pet door. My husband got the bird out of her mouth. She spent some time in her bed spitting out feathers. She's driven by her instinct.

I say why take a chance with pit bull dogs when there are a lot more friendly breeds of dogs available who will bark to alert you to danger allowing you to take your 2nd Amendment rights into consideration if necessary and prudent. Without your dog causing serious injury or death to innocent persons. We have always owned German Shepherd Dogs and Airedale Terriers over many years and have never experienced an instance of our dogs attacking or biting anyone, but if attacked themselves our dogs could certainly finish any fight.

Don't let children (or anyone for that matter) put their face close to a strange dog's face while looking it in its eyes. Definite trigger for any breed. Also, if you have any time/room to respond to an attack from a pack, pick out the leader (the one leading the circle of attack) and attack IT with all you've got. I've survived two such attacks by intimidation. Use your feet if nothing else, not hands and don't stop until they tire and lose interest. It's your only chance.

Nowadays, there are so many breeds without the reputation and horror stories to have as fabulous, loving companions for our precious children and grandchildren. I wonder why some people insist on these pitbulls. The shelters are full of them, pure bred and mixed pits. There is a reason. My Colleyville TX friend has many neighbors in their gated community with pitbulls. She never goes for her walks without the gun.

My late best friend, a professional golfer, was in Miami in 1984 to play at Doral Blue with some other pros. Like most playing pros, they like experimenting with new or old equipment and like swapping clubs until they find something close to perfect. Our Miami friend lived with his brother in a house at Julius Boros's Turnberry Isle, and he wanted to trade a MacGregor persimmon driver for a Hogan 1953 that my friend was willing to part with. Because our Miami friends couldn't go back home for several hours, one of them left my friend a key so he could get in and trade clubs. What my friend didn't know was that the brother had a Doberman, and they failed to tell him about it. When my friend unlocked the door, he was immediately accosted by a growling Doberman that was about to make a lunge for him. His hands were on the grip of the club. Without even thinking he brought the persimmon clubhead straight down on the dog's skull, which made a dull BONK. The dog, mortally injured, sank down to the floor with blood pouring from his head. Our friend's brother wasn't too happy that his guard dog had gotten offed, but not telling my friend about the dog could have resulted in my friend's getting killed. It was the dog or my friend Too bad it had to happen.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has said that the US Capitol riot last January was a 'trial run' and that Congress could come under mob attack again if Republicans regain a majority. 'If we lose the House, this is no joke -- January 6 was a trial run and a lot of people don't seem to understand that,' the New York Democrat said at a town hall in Queens on Wednesday. 'It was a trial run, and they're going to come back if they win the House,' she continued. 'The only reason it wasn't worse is because Democrats had the House, and they didn't have the votes.'

In the days after the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol building, the two top Republicans in Congress, Rep. Kevin McCarthy and Sen. Mitch McConnell, told associates they believed President Donald Trump was responsible for inciting the deadly riot and vowed to drive him from politics.McCarthy went so far as to say he would push Trump to resign immediately: “I’ve had it with this guy,” he told a group of Republican leaders, according to an audio recording of the conversation obtained by The New York Times.But within weeks both men backed off an all-out fight with Trump because they feared retribution from him and his political movement.

A federal appeals court ruled on Tuesday local governments in California can sue oil companies in state courts for allegedly causing climate change and hiding it from the public.The suit, which dates back to 2017, is seeking damages for more than 30 companies, which the anti-oil San Francisco Chronicle said fossil fuels producers “profit from products contributing to rises in temperatures and sea levels.”And that means climate change is forcing cities and counties in the state to spend more money on infrastructure, including sea walls.The plaintiffs in the case are San Mateo, Marin and Santa Cruz counties and the cities of Richmond, Santa Cruz and Imperial Beach

President Joe Biden has reportedly told former President Barack Obama that he intends to run for re-election in 2024. He wanted to be president for decades, so his desire to keep the Oval Office is unsurprising. But the case for a second term is quite weak — and voters know it even if Democrats in dreamland don’t.Inflation is at its worst in 40 years, erasing wage growth. Crime is surging in many major cities. Employers are struggling with labor shortages. Illegal immigration could top 2 million encounters this year, amid a border crisis that has been spiraling out of control since virtually the moment Biden took office.

When I was a teenager, the cool kids smoked cigarettes. Today they cut off their weiners. A mom writing for Substack’s “Parents with Inconvenient Truths about Trans” is claiming that her kid went full trans-tard after going to a new, woke, trans-happy school. She starts her article with this: “My teenage daughter has decided that she is “trans”. So have all her friends. Not some of them. Not most of them. Every. Single. One.” The anonymous mother also states that her daughter showed no signs of gender dysphoria and had never heard the word “transgender” before enrolling at her new school. That’s where she met a group of nerdy, artsy kids.

A Washington Nationals pregame display involving U.S. Army parachutists briefly caused an evacuation at the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday. U.S. Capitol Police around 6:30 p.m. sent an alarming notice to Capitol Hill staff that it was "tracking an aircraft that poses a probable threat to the Capitol Complex." Less than 20 minutes later, police sent an update: "The aircraft no longer poses a threat to the Capitol," and USCP said that buildings in the complex were being prepared for re-entry. Its message did not contain further information about the aircraft police had initially deemed a "probable threat." According to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, the Federal Aviation Administration failed to inform

Florida Democrats reportedly erupted Thursday on the House floor as they were powerless to stop the Republican-led body from passing a new congressional map that is expected to yield favorable results for the GOP. There are currently 16 Republicans and 11 Democrats representing Florida in the U.S. House of Representatives and the new map, which also adds an additional district, increases Republicans’ dominance in the state to what will likely amount to a 20-8 margin over the Democrats.The new map effectively targets seats held by Rep. Al Lawson (D-FL), Rep. Charlie Crist (D-FL), Rep. Stephanie Murphy (D-FL), and potentially Rep. Val Demings (D-FL).
Who exactly was Biden talking to during
his many stays in Delaware?

When a man becomes president, he suddenly gains a new appendage: The Secret Service. Wherever he goes and whatever he does, members of the Secret Service are there, keeping an eye on him. And, like all bureaucracies, you can be sure that the agents are required to document everything on their watch. That’s why it’s truly peculiar that, in response to a FOIA request from the New York Post to see documents identifying Joe Biden’s visitors during his regular stays in Delaware in 2021, the Secret Service is claiming that it has no records with that information.

Appearing Tuesday on MSNBC’s The Beat With Ari, veteran Democrat strategist James Carville lamented how no one “fears” the Democrat Party. A transcript is as follows: ARI MELBER: The party has long talked about being a big tent and the Internet has given more people a chance to weigh in, which can be great. It also feels like you’re in one of these local town meetings and everyone has two opinions about three projects. You have people who say they’ll vote for Biden again and wouldn’t vote for Trump, and they spend a lot of time talking about strategy, the Senate, Manchin. Do you think that’s a drag? JAMES CARVILLE: It’s totally a drag. It’s also
