Now, this is my first Mytake so please understand that I might not explain very well.
I was raised knowing that some animals are nice like puppies and kittens and some are mean like bears and snakes. What I was also taught was that what people give out is what animals give back. Pitbulls are typically used for dog fights because of their natural reflexes and tough build which means people raise them to fight. From the time they were puppies, they were taught to attack.
Now not all pitties are raised like this and usually those pits are careful and sweet because they never were taught to fight. People see news stories like "Pitbull attacks little girl!" and never understand that most of those pitbulls were raised in fighting situations and were rescued. Just because they were rescued does not mean they will forget the life they were taught. Thats like someone telling you to forget everything you think you know.
Also, the pitbull's medical structure also plays a key in violence. The breeds skull is built horribly. The skull slowly starts to almost cave in between their eyes (hence the famous dip in the forehead) and causes pain. This can effect how the animal acts. Now, something I dont agree with is police officers shooting them when they did nothing wrong. That is basically racial profiling. It is the same as a white officer shooting an African person.
The pitbull is also known as the "Babysitter dog" for their protective nature over family.
Who agrees? Reasons for disagreeing? Anyone wanna bet I can fight over this?

nice take :) I love pitbulls. I have one, a blue-nose pit. and she has been the sweetest thing. before her I had a dog that was part pitbull part mastiff. people were terrified when they saw him but hell he always covered people with kisses. but was also protective. my pitbull I have now, she's like that too. AND I have a mini poodle. he's so tiny compared to her, yet they love each other to death and my pit is always very gentle with him. like you said it just depends on how they are raised. blue nose pits have been labeled as "most dangerous pit breed" but that's hard to agree with when it comes to mine. if a dog is raised to be a fighter, its gonna be a fighter. if its raised to love, its gonna love.
