If it takes these women to go to jail for their criminal negligence then so be it. But clearly these dogs should have been put down before this tragic nightmare for the 76 year old decedent and her family. As the owner of a Rottweiler, bad breeding (poor temperaments, zero socialization and training) dogs can become lethal. But please do not impugn the pit breed in general, but/for for the lack of quality and vicious propensities in these dogs you write about, I know and have met hundreds of pits who are loving, kind and well socialized. This breed is NOT inherently dangerous but the Cornelios obviously were.
