This is why you need to keep your toddler strapped to the back of a rottweiler at all times. Also have at least 4 pit bulls orbiting the rottweiler just to be safe.

Ross E. Krushan: Kieron? Why are boys' names getting so ghey?


It's a variant of Kieran, which means "black" in Gaelic. It's been a name for centuries, though we in the U.S. are more used to seeing it as a surname in its other variants, like Kiernan and Kern.

Why do people own dogs like that?
It seems that the lower one goes on the scale of life, the closer they gravitate towards vicious dogs. Is it in order to match up with their tough persona? Compensation?

Aside from that, we are talking about the British here, and there is a fine line between being British, and being gay.

The guy doesn't look like he can afford to be sued at all. That kid better learn how to pick his lawsuit targets better before he decides to give up his other eye.

And that's what happens when you let your crotchfruit wander around.

I feel bad for the parents, but it's not like the owner sicced the dogs on the kid.

The dog was on his own property. A two year old wandered in unsupervised. Not exactly the owners fault, no matter what he looks like.

"If you're a parent, you have to look after your children 24 hours a day. If it wasn't a dog, it could have been a paedophile."

And then....

Police said it was unlikely Mr King will be charged because Keiron was attacked on his property.

So......basically, yeah. Don't let your kids wander into people's yards. Seriously.

Are you hoping there's enough over penetration to take out the ass-hat parents that refused to supervise their g.d. crotch fruit?

No difference in these tools and people that don't put their kids in car-seats or let them drown in home pools.

I can't stand the number of people who are going to blame the toddler in this thread. Toddlers aren't born inherently vicious. They are made that way by aggressive, violence-loving, and irresponsible parents. I've know 35 pound toddlers who were gentle as cotton balls. I've also known 10 pound infants that would rip your face off. The parents make them that way by beating them with two-by-fours, shocking them with Tazers, and even forcing them to eat pureed peas. They treat them like animals, so they act like animals.

The best thing we can do at this point is lock the parents up and put the toddlers down. If they've tasted blood, then they are far beyond the point of rehabilitation. I know if might sound cruel, but there are humane ways to dispatch of them. They deserve peace.
 
2012-06-05 10:05:20 AM  
I'll probably get eviscerated for this, buuut...

The boy wandered onto the dog owner's property where the attack happened. I'm guessing it isn't the safest neighborhood, in which case having a guard dog is, I believe, to be a legitimate form of protecting your property.

I can't imagine the trauma on the child and the family, but why the hell weren't the guardians keeping a better eye on the boy in a neighborhood of such questionable integrity?
 
2012-06-05 10:06:11 AM  
I love dogs. I love Pitties, I have worked with them a lot and have a Pit mix myself. But I firmly believe that once an untrained dog (ie. not a police or war dog) crosses that line, they can never be trusted around people again. It's damned shame because the irresponsible owner is the farkwad that made them that way, but the dog needs to be put down.

Dammit. I was just finishing posting something like this to the cougar thread and you beat me to the punch here. Well played.
 
2012-06-05 10:08:28 AM  
I also agree that the parents are partially to blame in this instance. Letting your eight or nine year old wander around the neighborhood is one thing, but two?

2012-06-05 10:09:34 AM  
There is so much blame here, I'm not sure who is more at fault.
The Parents;
Where were they?
How could the boy be left to wonder that close to the dog?

The Dog Owner;
Was there a fence?
Was his dog tied up?

These are just some of the questions that should be asked. My kids were never out of my sight at that age. It appears that everyone knew the dogs were nasty, they should have been taken away after the fist time. The only innocent here is the boy. I hope he will heal. It does not look like he will see any money from the owner.

Garfield King's Staffordshire bull terrier inflicted horrific injuries after Keiron Guess wandered into his garden.

That guy has a point. They try to make him sound like a completely awful person, but there are questions about a number of things:
1) Was the dog chained/fenced in?
2) How did the kid get in there?
3) Why was he able to?
4) What were the parents doing while their 2 year old wandered into someone else's yard? (it is not like they are fast)
5) Was it really necessary for the Sun to use an ill-timed, grainy cell phone pic of the guy instead of a better taken one with a decent camera (like the pic of the dogs)?

^ This. Why aren't the parents being charged with child endangerment or whatever the Brit version is?

If they have other kids, why haven't they been re-homed?

My son and I were attacked and torn up by 3 pit bulls at the beach even the owner could not make them stop. 5 days in the hospital.

A poodle and taco bell dog is ten times more likely to bite you, one bite then they run most times it does not even break the skin.

A pit-bull bites in goes all the way thru the skin breaking the bone.

A small dog gets in a pack with other small dogs and they will bite and as you kick them across the yard they will come back and bit you again it will take two days for them to kill you.

A pit bull has it breed into them from over 70 years of breeding for fighting and bear killing to go for the kill no mater what it can not be trained out of them. It takes tops 2 minutes if you are an adult for them to kill you.

It is the difference between have a domestic kitty cat and a well trained bob cat. Sure they are both just smallish cats but on can kill you as easily as swatting a fly and should not be kept as a pet without being secured away from the public.

Agreed. That's why they need to be trained, especially the powerful breeds.

2012-06-05 10:33:18 AM  
I love dogs, have my entire life. I, too, believe a person has a right to use a dog as a tool to guard his property, but I also think it's reasonable to expect a dog to differentiate between the threats posed by a toddler and by an adult wandering through your yard. If it can't, then it isn't a good tool. Might as well litter the lawn with bear traps.

Well the problem are the people who organize the baby fights. That's who we need to go after. If we shut down all the illegal gambling on baby fighting, then the baby owners would have no incentive to raise their crotch goblins to be vicious. Unless they live in the ghetto, then it's probably going to happen anyway, since you aren't considered 'tough' if you don't have a 'tough' baby. That's why you see babies being fed gunpowder and made to drag truck tires while wearing large gauge chain collars.
But that's nothing a little nerve gas deployed near a Church's chicken can't solve.
 
2012-06-05 10:43:13 AM  
2 year old's don't scale fences - so it appears that there was nothing keeping the dog in or the kid out. If you have a dangerous dog ( or an attractive nuisance like a pool or trampoline) you need to put a fence around it.

Both of those are likely variants of Aidan, also an old name in Irish history.
