Ving needs to be charged with manslaughter. If firearms makers are liable the Ving certainly is

the man HAD worked there? Why did he come back?
OJ got off so I am sure the dogs will too.

Oh wait. What color are the dogs?
What color is the victim?
Was he an illegal immigrant doing work Americans don't want to do?
All of these important facts matter when twisting laws to fit the crime.

Scooter and Rove and Rumsfield all get off. Cheney shot a friend, we assume, and the friend apologized. God Bless this once great nation of America.

Something else to consider concerning people with dangerous dogs. Given that people who gravitate towards dangerous dogs also gravitate towards guns, and are obviously unsuitable stewards of deadly weapons whether canine or otherwise, how about making a dog attack episode automatic probable cause for a search of the dog owners' house and car for illegal weapons, while simultaneously making owning a dangerous dog grounds for automatic revocation of any gun permits?(Obviously, that couldn't be retroactive, so a gun legally owned before the attack wouldn't be a crime, but the owner would have it confiscated and held by the police until he found a new owner for it.) This would help keep guns out of the hands of irresponsible gun owners, and give the cops a tool to get gangbangers' guns and perhaps find a evidence of other crimes (drugs, illegal machine guns, sawed off shotguns, etc) to get these thugs off our streets.

Were the dogs Bullmastiffs or Fila's because these are two totally different types of dogs (mastiff family however). I am a Bullmastiff owner and do not want people thinking that they are a "dangerous" animal.

Do a Google search on Fila Brazilian Mastiffs, it is in their genes to recognize only the immediate family. The explanations on their temperament is quite concise, these are what it is reported Ving had.
It is sad for the person and all those that will be affected by his death. It is sad for the animals doing what it is they have been bred to do, as they will most surely be put down.

What an ignorant remark. Any dog running in packs CAN attack. It has nothing with being abused or
neglected. Moron!

I was attacked by our family dog when I was 5 yrs. old, I did nothing to provoke him, I was just sitting on the porch. My Dad was sitting right next to me, the dog's mouth got clamped around my knee with his teeth embedded in my flesh. My Dad pryed the dog's mouth open, grabbed the animal by its hind legs and smashed its head against the corner of the house. In another instance a man from our church walked out on his back porch to feed his dog, the dog jumped out from behind a bush and ripped his face open, he still has the 3" scare 20 yrs. later.
