City TV is holding a town meeting kind of

Last night after the segment on Pit Bulls they said that they recieved over 400 emails and have decided to have a public forum and want everybody to write in and say why they would like to be there. So some of you like Schwinn,Sammie,Luvmypit and Dukieboy and the others who have spent so much time and energy now is your time to educate the public. Start writing. They have invited the village idiot but I would bet money he won't show up. They did not give a date yet but I would get on it right away. How much would you love to go face to face with this a**? I would love to go and I might write in from a large breed dog owners point of view and how it affects us.

This was after the pit bull segment. I got the imprssion that they were surprised by the volume of emails and have decided this is a lot bigger issue than they first thought. It will happen in the evening I'm sure since this is how they usually do these things around 8:00

I don't know if I will be able to go in because of my schedule, but definitely I will be writing in.

I think whether your a pit owner or not this is so important. It actually holds more steam if your not a pit owner so mastifflover your support is greatly appreciated. Write this sucker. My first question would be
What evidence do you have that suggests that these dogs are inherently dangerous? He keeps saying it but never has an answer. He has no proof and there are no different genes in these dogs then others. Also I would tell him to ask the victims of other dogs bites from other breeds and tell them the horror that they experienced is nothing like that of a pit bull attack. He keeps saying the victims the victims. Well what about other breed attacks. Their not important. This ban wouldn't have protected them.
