Canines can be dangerous creatures. Don't buy a big dog for your kids if it's got a bad temperament, because if it wants to kill your kid it will. What makes it want to depends entirely upon how it was raised and what it's heritage is.
You can train any behavior.

You cannot train a temperament.

Because of this, you cannot take a dog with poor lineage that makes it very neurotic and expect to get anything that isn't neurotic.

Where in here is banning Pit Bulls? Nowhere. Banning pit-bulls is like banning .45 calibre ammunition.

But in a country full of people who want to pass laws and feel safer from the dangerous world around them, just about anything is up for grabs.

It is the cornered defenseless animal that is
the most dangerous animal. And many people feel defenseless and cornered in todays state of affairs.

These people perhaps don't realize that they shouldn't have put the child and dogs together. Leaving children unsupervised is first of all stupid, then leaving them with two dogs is probably worse. The kid could have gotten them rilled up or some such. It is not a place for the state to come in and say what people should or should not have. It is the place of the land owner/land lord, the people living there. They made a choice to have those dogs, they took that risk and did something wrong. Blame the dogs for the parents leaving the child home alone.

There are poodles that are much more dangerous than retrievers. It still highly depends on the dog and situation. An animal is a great responsibility and the owner has it, when they place their dog in a bad situation they are responsible for it. Not the breed, not every other dog owner in the world.

They left the child in an apartment with something that could kill him if handled wrong.

"In this town, having a pit bull or two or three and three kids is not acceptable because we're not going to deal with the consequences of losing a life."

That says it all right there.

On that mentality, might as well stop cars from being able to exceed 75mph. Far more people die of deadly accidents every day than of dog bites.

I mean, hell, if they really want to stop society from dealing with the consequences of losing a life, there are SO many more things they could go after.

But ..

This is issue du jour .... tomorrow it'll be another one. People ARE fucking sheep, and what's worse is that they think they have a brain and like to look at an issue and go "I KNOW HOW TO FIX IT!!!" ... rather than just ignore it because it really ISNT that big of a deal.

Yeah, really those people could have prevented the whole event had they been following common sense.

Would they do so much about drunk driving, speeding, assault, shop lifting? Something that is a real crime, things that are meant to or cause a great deal of damage. I imagine in that area speeding must kill at least one person a day, drunk driving probably two. But what makes big news? Kid left alone with two dogs. A situation that the parents should have known better than to create. And to fix the so called problem they eliminate the dog.. would work if they eliminated the kid too, or the stupid owner.

Dobermans tend to be a bit prone to snapping. You can raise the world's sweetest dog but there's always a chance a doberman will just snap one day and kill your grandma. nothing you can do about it. They were bred as attack dogs.

Typically there needs to be a reason. Canines are image based animals. Their traits and behavior is managed by certain cues. Snapping is often when a dog that has an alpha/beta relationship tests that bond in an attempt to gain alpha position, this comes up when the alpha shows a weakness.

Word. We take things like guns for granted. We know they can kill someone, but usually we don't think it can kill you or me. You take that risk. If you knew full well what the risks were and still went with it, you're at fault.
