    any dog can be dangerous LVS. My mon had a chihuahua you didn’t dare try to pick up if he was on the couch!! Helen Keller, Teddy Roosevelt both owned pit bulls. The MOST decorated dog in WW2 was a pit bull!! they are just as living as the owner wants to make them. Certain people should not own them and everyone knows who those two cultures are!!!!!!

    When did Val Sr get out of prison, and has he been exposing that dog to meth labs? I see Val Jr is in jail right now for dealing weed, wonder when they will let him transition into the family business and start moving the white stuff.

    Human being that’s dumber than the average fencepost + dog breed proving to be ticking time bombs = bad, bad combination.

    What a drag on society these type of people are.Able body loosers that are stupid as h*ll and have no skills at all to be productive at any REAL job to support yourself and the family around you.Don’t have pride left in your body,wake up for the young kids in your family while they still have a chance.

        Including the most injured being his own Mother! Hopefully she’ll wake up and stop allowing the behavior in her home that preceded this incident and others. If that were my son he’d be kicked to the curb until he could act like a decent person. Obviously she gave up control of this guy in her home yrs. ago.

    This guy has been in trouble for one thing or another all of his life. He is a lifetime loser and really doesn’t care about anything. He will get a slap on the hands and a fine that he won’t pay anyway and the dog will get put down. Some people have no business owning a animal and this is one. Especially a potentially dangerous dog like a Pit Bull.
