Selfish, narcissistic, sociopathic lying, me first, denial, enabling, no accountability...denying the right of others to live free and the right to the pursuit of happiness and the right to have any peaceable quality of life. Why are people like this, people that name their pets,their loved ones,Vic (Michael Vic) and Tyson (Mike Tyson)...two documented convicted abusers, allowed to have no accountability and a press that allows that gives them support. Where is the responsibility of the Press?...same reason selfishness and greed in this case to sell more to the public that supports this.

Get your facts in order. Kevin is the father, Sean is the dog owner and son of Kevin. Lindsay is the daughter of Kevin. Obviously you went by an earlier story or photo gallery where you had your info incorrect.I do agree with your opinion though.

This scenario is playing out across the country and it always seems to be this breed of dog. Clearly, its an aggressive dangerous breed. And I agree with Scott regarding the naming of the pets- both named after violent aggressive fighters. That is telling about the owners intention or view of their own dog. I'm not sure how I feel about having the dogs put to sleep, perhaps an alternative is a "Doggy jail" deep in the Adirondack's away from people- that the owners are required to pay for if they don't want their dogs put to sleep. But these dogs def should never be allowed to reside near other people.
