commented on How to Defeat a Pit Bull with Your Bare Hands
"Pit bulls" are a type of dog not a breed. There are over 20 types of dogs that people refer to as "pit bulls." Police reports are made by people who only know that the innocent that they're reporting was caused by a dog that looks like a pit bull. It's like saying that a dark-skinned person mugged me and describing them as black.
Yes, there occasionally are horrible consequences that arise from people owning powerful animals that they don't have the ability or desire to control. Same with guns. And booze. Talking about how to defend yourself against a drunk hobo, crack head or street thug won't rile people up enough for the Stranger though.
The Stranger should stick to covering what they're good at - lame bands, nightlife and city council members.
