doctors are one of the leading causes of death in america...should we blame their dogs?
Wow, imagine the death toll if we didn't have doctors!
if your car runs someone over, or your gun shoots someone...or a shingle flies off your roof and....
or heaven forbid a burgler might hurt himself on a defective ladder while breaking into your house.....
who's responsible by law?
depends on who has your car, and how did you let your gun get away from you? If you sold it to a gang member, yup you will face repercussions.
In my state, if you let a tree get sick and it falls and destroys someone else's property, you can face serious repercussions.
wait a minute ...doctors are serious cause of hundreds of thousands in the US every year...
hundreds or thousands of what?
So your alternative is the village shaman. I will take my chance with the doc.

Pit Bulls ranked above 121 other dogs in terms of temperament!
The link is full of wonderful photos of BABIES and Kids snuggling with Pit Bulls!!
I own 2 Pits a male and female, both are cuddle bugs and non aggressive, I take them to the dog park several times a week and have seen other dogs such as boxers, and labs get in nasty fights with other dogs but NEVER a pit bull. You are wrong about your opinion, pit bulls are some of the most loyal and loving dogs out there. do a little research before posting something dumb!!!

Sounds like the owner was responsible for the animal and thus the child's death.
Dog's aren't born mean, they are bred to be mean. Of course animals have instincts, but they aren't inherently "evil."
This is tragic, however...
Ironically dogs kill more people than terrorists do........
The outdated debate, "It's the owner, not the breed," has caused the pit bull problem to grow into a 30-year old problem.1 Designed to protect pit bull breeders and owners, the slogan ignores the genetic history of the breed and blames these horrific maulings -- inflicted by the pit bull's genetic "hold and shake" bite style -- on environmental factors. While environment plays a role in a pit bull's behavior, it is genetics that leaves pit bull victims with permanent and disfiguring injury.
71% of the pit bull fatalities have occurred in the past 10 years; 42% in the past four years; 24% in the past two years.
n the 3-year period from 2006 to 2008, pit bull type dogs killed 52 Americans and accounted for 59% of all fatal attacks. Combined, pit bulls and rottweilers accounted for 73% of these deaths.
A trucker who was at the gas station ran over with a long metal rod and he hit the pitbull so hard it bent it, and it would not let go of the guys thigh. I grabbed my .45 from the center console and had to shoot it point blank through the upper chest.
The pitbull died almost instantly, but it still made one last mad lunge at me after I shot it.
He was plenty upset over me shooting his dog, no concern for the poor guy it mauled
