i have nothing against "bully breed" dogs - but their owners need to grow some nuts and train them to behave the way they need to in public - not the dog's fault just a stupid lazy dog owner - could have been someone`s kid

Yeah that is 1 too many zeros there. Pits can bite pretty damn hard but they don't have the strongest bite of the domesticated canine. From a quick internet search it seems that a Rottweiler`s bite is in most cases much stronger. German shepherds are pretty much on the same level as pits when it comes down to pounds PSI. In any case, owners need to be more responsible. That could have easily been a small child hanging limp from his jaws.

Scuzoid: "..no such thing as jaw locking on any breed of dog."
Pitbull jaws may not technically 'lock` but they can and do exert over 3200 pounds of continuous jaw pressure with little effort. That jaw pressure is comparable to an alligator. Also I`ve seen pitbulls that have chomped down on a few things (a girls hand and a cat) and they would not release. Both dogs had to be put down and even then their jaws didn`t immediately release.
P.S. The girl still has trouble using her left hand, the cat died.
