How the examiner slandered pit bull attack victims “get a brain morans”- pit bull awareness day , walk for pit bull victims

here is the original
get a brain examiner

examiner slanders victims


The examiner has stopped to new lows using a photo shopped image to paint pit bull victims as “morans”
This is beyond insulting to all the victims of pit bull attacks , and to paint people with legitimate concerns about the most vicious dog breed as idiots is beyond insulting .
Cindy Marabito should be fired .


Here some comments from pit bull nutters proving they are the morons and cannot tell a basic meme and Photoshop


Kriss Blake Richison· Top Commenter

I love how the brainiac mispelled “moron” on his poster (in the picture). The sign reads: “Get a brain morans!” I googled “morans” and the urban dictionary gives it’s definition as: “A moron’s spelling of the word moron which means idiot. Also the name of a city in the state of Kansas.”
Sharon Aldridge Sleighter· Top Commenter

These people are the “Westboro Baptist Church of the Canine World”. Totally misinformed, laughably ignorant and they refuse any reason or logic that doesn’t further their misguided cause. And please, if you don’t want to look like a moron, please look up the spelling of the word before you put it on a poster calling others morans!

What good is it going to do to require pit bulls to be muzzled in public? I’m going to go out on a limb and say the dogs that are biting people are not likely dogs who are being walked on leashes by responsible owners. The dogs biting are more likely to be strays, or dogs who have gotten loose (either accidentally or on purpose) from some kind of enclosure or yard or house. So all we have to do is get the dogs to put muzzles on themselves before they break free from their chain or their kennel or their yard to go terrorize the neighborhood…Bad dogs come from bad owners, not good responsible owners. I’m going to guess that if you can’t get the bad owners to do the basics like spay / neuter, provide basic healthcare & socialization and not fight their dogs, then you might not have too much luck getting the to comply with muzzle requirements while they take their Sunday afternoon stroll through the park. Just a guess. And I think the “Get a brain! morans” sign just about says all you need to say about anybody who supports this group.

Yes ignore the sign that says “Ban pit bulls” and then it isn’t about BSL is it – you sound like one of the morans eve :0
Shawn Lowe· Top Commenter

It is too bad that people like her are given some credibility. She, like so many others, are blaming the wrong end of the leash…and behaving like “morans” to boot.

Anti Pit bull task force will reconvene, lawmaker says

A task force that studied possible solutions to a liability problem created by a Maryland high court ruling that called pit bulls “inherently dangerous” will be reconvened, a state lawmaker said.

Del. Michael D. Smigiel Sr., R-Upper Shore, said Thursday the task force that met several times over the summer will start meeting again after the General Assembly could not reconcile differences between Senate and House of Delegates versions of the legislation passed during the gambling-focused August special session.

“The pit bull task force will be called back in for some further review,” Smigiel said. “They’re looking at doing something that’s more in line with what [Sen. Brian E.] Frosh wanted.”

The bill passed in the Senate and championed by Frosh made all dog owners strictly liable if their dog bit someone, with some exceptions. But the House version drastically narrowed Frosh’s legislation, making owners liable only if a dog was running “at large.”

The House adjourned after passing the amended bill and legislation that could expand casino gambling in Maryland, giving the Senate two take-it-or-leave-it options. Frosh chose to leave the pit bull bill.

Since then, a lawsuit has been filed calling the Court of Appeals’ April ruling unconstitutional.

Pit bull awareness day 2012- Walk for Victims of Pit Bulls and Other Dangerous Dogs

2012- Walk for Victims of Pit Bulls and Other Dangerous Dogs
Please come and join us, and show your support by walking for the VICTIMS of pit bull and other dangerous dog attacks. Most often when these dogs attack, maul or kill children, adults or family pets, the support seems to be misplaced onto the attacking dog/s to be euthanized, rather than where it should be…on the VICTIM. It is time that the voice of the VICTIMS and their families be heard to promote public awareness and help reduce the number of these attacks.
Date: Saturday, October 27th 2012
! ! Time: 12:00 noon to 7pm
Location: Lincoln Park

Brave Tuscon woman starts support group and international event for victims of pitbulls and other dangerous dogs. Mellissa Barbalaco is a disabled woman who experienced a violent pitbull attack on her service dog. She met with other victims online and spearheaded an event to bring support group members together in the first gathering of pitbull attack victims. The members speak of common problems such as:
Post- Traumatic Stress Disorder
Grief and Mourning loss of pet
On-going legal issues
Dissatisfaction with laws to protect people from vicious dogs
Lack of empathy and understanding from surrounding community
Financial burdens from the pitbull attacks
Parenting issues and Serious Medical issues
A belief that pitbulls pose a safety threat to people and their pets in their neighborhoods and yards.
“I couldn’t of gotten though this without you guys” writes one support group member. Another member posts online, ” GOOD NEWS! My boy has slept in his own bed and slept through the night for the first time since the attack!” The victims feel like family and seek to meet in person and reach out to other victims that need support so “Mellie” and the members of her support group have rented a park, hired onsite security and brought in two lives bands, and a food vendor along with several speakers on the issue of dangerous dogs. The group has also contributed to pay for the hotel expenses so Canadian victim Marie Helene Tokar can attend, and secured Tshirts for the event. We will start the party with a Walk to honor victims of pitbulls. Churches, and business groups are welcome to come out and support victims to help raise awaremess and show support. “We will hold posters of victims that cannot attend due to the severity of their injuries, or due to the fact that they were killed by a pitbull. ”
DOG ARE PROHIBITED AT THE EVENT. https://www.facebook.com/Walkforvictimsofpbodd?ref=ts

Be Alert – Pit Bull Awareness Day is October 27, 2012 – Lies and propoganda

Support Pit Bull Awareness day – October 27, 2012

heres the propaganda –

National Pit Bull Awareness Day (NPBAD) is a day of appreciation and education designed to change perceptions and stereotypes about pit bulls and their responsible owners MOST OWNERS ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE AND HAVE VIOLENCE ISSUES. NPBAD was established to educate and foster positive communications and experiences in the communities in which we and our dogs live, and it is an initiative dedicated to restoring the image of the American Pit Bull Terrier.

NPBAD was started in 2007 by Jodi Preis of Bless the Bullys, a pit bull rescue and education group in Middle Tennessee. When Bless the Bullys introduced the idea of a nationwide pit bull awareness day, the response was overwhelming! It was immediately recognized as an opportunity to educate, change minds, and bring about positive media attention to pit bulls across the country all on one day.

Despite the overall positive reception, Preis initially received criticism from some for using the generic term “pit bull” in naming the nationwide effort, however, the term was chosen deliberately, and is used for a very obvious reason. “Pit bull” is the name most familiar to the public, and the term that evokes a negative connotation of a particular grouping of dogs. The objective of NPBAD is, of course, to change that negative image.
Support Pit Bull Awareness day – October 27, 2012

The ultimate goal of NPBAD is to promote the truth about pit bulls. HOW ABOUT THE TRUTH ABOUT THE 33 DEATHS in 2011 ALL BY PIT BULLS ? Knowledge is power, and with education and advocacy, the truth will save lives in terms of negating the fear and bias generated by the media, circumvent knee-jerk reactions such as breed bans, and the truth will result in fewer pit bulls ending up in animal shelters.

NPBAD is an annual event that takes place in October. With the exception of the date, NPBAD is “unstructured” to allow those who participate to be as creative and have as much fun as possible with their ideas and celebrations. Through the years, we have seen some really creative and incredibly successful events!

NPBAD is the heart of the National Pit Bull Awareness Campaign, an effort to change minds and opinions about pit bulls not just one day a year, but everyday
