    No one in the article said the dog likes biting black folks. The guy who cut a dogs eye out said he gotten bitten a year ago. Did you find another article that said that? Or are you just going dramatic?

    Hey. He knew better than to get all up in the dog's face. His fuck up, if he wanted to keep his job.

    Heh...he probably did it to get unemployment. :rolleyes2:

    Biax, don't be silly, it's much easier for him to find a job now that he is charged with a crime.

    Nope, the owner just said--

    "The dog reacts to black people, Hispanics, anyone who is not white," owner Paul Tocco said. "She always barked at him. He (Owens) was well aware the dog didn't like him, and he knew to stay away from her."

    Apparently he should stay away from her because she licks Black folks and Hispanics to death.

    The guy who cut a dogs eye out said he gotten bitten a year ago. Did you find another article that said that? Or are you just going dramatic?
    Again, ask the SPCA who essentially wrote the article, I'm sure they'll be honest. Yeah, he said it and the SPCA and owner said some shit too-- why do you automatically believe them but distrust him?

    You both missed my point but never mind.

    Maybe stories about animals do funny things to people </shrugs>.

    I quoted the article, did you see that? Also, if the dog bit him a year ago maybe he should have done something a year ago. Would you rather be charged and have to find a new job or just look for a new job without being charged with a crime? Why not try to get the employer to get rid of the dog? You are acting like this response is an appropriate or normal response. It is not acceptable which is why he is being charged.

    My uncle's dog was abused by somebody black, and now she barks like crazy whenever a black person is within her field of vision. That's a problem, because his garbageman is black. I think it has to do with learned thought from past experiences.

    Maybe, but I don't the specifics of the situation.

    I don't know this particular guy's situation, so it's difficult for me to say. I will say this, though, if I am being threatened and it is illegal for me to respond with force, I do not think it just that I should have to forgo my employment.

    Why not try to get the employer to get rid of the dog?
    Like I said to Biaxident-- how do you know he didn't? You are basing your entire opinion on what the SPCA and the dog's owner are saying.

    You are acting like this response is an appropriate or normal response.
    No, I'm acting like I don't know all the facts, so I don't know if it was an appropriate/justified response or not (normality having nothing to do with whether it was appropriate or justified), however, I do object to those presuming this man's guilt. I am simply saying, based solely on the facts in this article, I can imagine circumstances under which the action would be justified.

    See my first post on this thread.

    It is not acceptable which is why he is being charged.
    Right, because no one is ever charged with a crime they didn't actually commit or charged for breaking an unjust law.

    Hey, if the media and authorities say he's a bad man, well, they must be right, yeah?

    Yeah, I don't understand why people put domesticated animals on such a pedestal. We're devastated over a news report on pet cruelty but call the Hindu "exotic" or "strange" because they won't touch our beloved quarter pounder.

    It reminds me of the controversy surrounding Michael Vick. I remember growing up in my neighborhood the boys around the block would raise dogs to fight each other. I never understood then why they'd want to do something like that (nor do I really now), but I also remember not being too terribly appalled by it. I think it has a lot to do with upbringing, cultural influence, etc although that is in no way justification for mistreating animals of any kind, pets or not. Further, my point is despite the fact that I adore animals, always have, and volunteer at and donate to the Humane Shelter as often as I can, I don't as Ragingkatsuki said understand putting pets at a higher priority than human beings.

    Also, I may just be being a jerk here, but I always thought it was a little narcissistic to love something that is entirely dependent on you and loves you as its "master."* Don't hurt me.

    *of course that's not why all people love their pets/have pets - duh, got it.

    Which doesn't make it ok but doesn't make it newsworthy either.

    It does not make it right, but it is effectively the same thing. Cruelty is cruelty, and I can not think of too many things worse than killing something.
