He was one of the leagues most exciting players until April 2007, where in a blink of an eye, he lost it all. Mike Vick was convicted and pleaded guilty of running a dog fighting operation just outside his home in Virginia. Vick was responsible for the torture and murder of innocent dogs. He was immediately suspended by the NFL without pay and he lost his endorsement deals, eventually leading himself to bankruptcy.

Of course we hear stories of pit bulls attacking people, but the same is true of all other breeds. When a dog of some other breed attacks someone it does not draw much media attention, but when it's a pit bull it's all over the news. This gives the public a false sense of security because it makes us forget about other dogs from different breeds that have a attacked and hurt people. B. This leads me to my topic, should pit bulls be banned?
Back then they had the utmost respect from people and a lot of people in England owned a Staffordshire terrier. They came to America in 1870’s with the name Pit Bull due to owners placing the dogs in a pit and fighting each other to the death. These dogs go by many different names like Pit dog, Pit Bull terrier and American Bull terrier.
