Depraved Indifference

To constitute depraved indifference, the defendant's conduct must be so wanton, so deficient in a moral sense of concern, so lacking in regard for the life or lives of others, and so blameworthy as to warrant the same criminal liability as that which the law imposes upon a person who intentionally causes a crime. Depraved indifference focuses on the risk created by the defendant’s conduct, not the injuries actually resulting.

Driving analogy to the dog owning world....

Pit Owners=Drunk Drivers

Rott Owners=Texting Drivers

I wonder if Erb would be willing to sell "Satan"?...I have a cousin who is a Meth Dealer and he needs a "Man-Stoppah" in case "The Man" stops by.

Between driving analogy and man stoppah I am actually having the first bleak laugh on this very bleak and deadly day.

How did we as a society let it come to this?

This is a war. There's a daily pit bull body count.

In unrelated (and slightly more modern) news, here's the Lexus Project's newest case:

https://www.facebook.com/pages/Save-Dream/265548240304151?sk=timeline

Pit bull "service dog" bites small child and causes significant injury to her face. Apologists waste no time in downplaying the severity of the bite and blaming everyone except the dog and its owner. Very little sympathy is shown for what the child went through.

This complete lack of concern for child dog bite victims may not be technically depraved or criminal, but it's becoming disturbingly widespread.

It's okay for innocent children to be attacked by pit bulls, but it's not okay for pit bulls to be put to sleep for being aggressive, and preventing this from happening again.

This makes me sick.

"7 year old Dream is sentenced to death for a bite. The mom of the child who was bit wants Dream dead for revenge. Jake, Dreams (sic) owner is willing to relocate Dream, but not kill her."

Yes, please relocate Dream out of state, and obfuscate the biting history. This piece of crap pit bull is a "service dog" after all. We wouldn't want all of that intensive training to go to waste.

Has there ever been a report of a real service dog attacking children, or other animals?

Hey pit bull service dog trainers and owners, why can't you control your service dogs?

agreed anon 8:10, this is sick. i can't imagine anyone or any group rallying support for pedophiles but that is essentially what is happening with vicious dogs.
