I say get a pit bull at your own risk.
Now the Humane Society in Michigan won't adopt out even part pit bull dogs. They'll put them down.
My sister had a dog, Prince, who was part black lab and part pit bull. He had a bit of an ornery streak in him. You did NOT push or pull him, or he'd growl--you had to ASK him to move.
Prince was NEVER abused by any family member. Yet there came a point where every time my mother tried to go into my sister's room, he'd attack her! So he was put down. I know that my mother and sister never did anything to encourage him to be aggressive. They also had a Great Dane who was a big baby--and he was afraid of Prince!
I don't know what's up with pit bulls--are they bred to be vicious or what? If so it had to have been in recent years, because Petey, the dog in the Little Rascals show, was a pit bull.

My personal experience with pit bulls is that they are sweet and loving dogs, but can be very protective. I don't think the breed should be outlawed, any dog can be dangerous if it's not trained properly.
