Trainwreck Ed. 1.3 - Check Mate

Any chess players? I played a lot of chess as a kid, and I recall one scenario where a player would retain their King but nothing else. That leaves said player in a situation where they can dodge, but are in no position to engage the other player. This scenario indicates "game over" and by continuing to play you are doing nothing but wasting time.

The "Mickey" Scenario reminds me of the above chess scenario. The nuts have our balls in a vise. Mickey supporters outnumbering Kevin supporters 100 to 1? It is freaking game over, so get used to it (as many dog lovers would say).

As usual, I have my "big 3" to blame:

  1. Pit nutter aggression. They assert have the "right" to attack us with their dogs and get away with it. Not only is any prior restraint off the table, but there will be no restraint after the fact, either. They can do whatever they want to us and we MUST suck it up and take it. They not only may own the beasts, but they can do whatever they want with them. Anyone who disagrees is worse than Hitler!!
  2. Out of control Dog worship. Who set the above standards, anyway? Its dog lovers who eroded all of the social barriers regarding any reasonable animal control. No licensing requirement, no leash laws, no barking laws, no restraints on biters. Ever. ALL dog behavior is just and good by definition. Sure, this might or might not be codified, but your buds in AC will never enforce any laws, correct? Everything Fido does is somebody ELSE'S fault, right? It MUST be the vic's fault as only a total monster would not love every dog in existence unconditionally.
  3. Unrestrained Animal Rights (AR) advocacy. All animals have the same rights as people, correct? A dog, like Mickey, has full protection under the US constitution IN ADDITION TO full Miranda rights! Mickey has his own LAWYER For shits sake! How the hell can a DOG have a lawyer? Oh, THAT would be due to the fact that dog lovers and AR rightists have been pushing the meme that DOGZ IS PEEPEL for the past 80 years! Thanks to you, every dog bite case is now going to cost taxpayers hundreds of thousands. Thanks, assholes.

Pursuant to (3) while you are clearly losing your battle on every front, you BSL folks need to determine what you believe. While many of you are consistent in your beliefs, some of you need to figure out whether or not "DOGZ IS PEEPEL". BSL and animal rights are fundamentally inconsistent. If dogs truly ARE people, then there is NO BSL, period! I mean NO BSL, not under ANY circumstances... zero, zilch, NADA! You can't throw pit bulls out of your town any more than you can blacks or jews. Just forget about it: Indeed it IS "breed racism"! End of story and the end of the road. Again, you dog lovers and animal rights nuts OWN this one.

Thanks dog lovers and animal rights activists, you laid the foundation for this train wreck. You built the locomotive and laid the track! You own the cultural standards (blame the victim) and the legal standards ("get that dog a lawyer!") Sure, maybe YOU don't support Mickey nor would you own a Pit Bull, but the framework is all yours! You don't think non-Pit owners would take a stance like this? Check this out.

In any case, my prediction is going to be that Mickey is spared. The local AC agency tried to do its job, but was overwhelmed by dog lovers, Pit bull afficionados, and AR nutjobs. Even the government has limited resources. Plan B, lower case scenario: Government wins, but its a complete Pyrrhic victory. Mickey IS put down, but the government decides to NEVER pursue anything like this again, thus leaving maulers free to maul. I would give it 60-40 in favor of Mickey, but a win for the nuts in either case. Essentially, 100-0 in favor of the nuts. Check mate.


Update, March 10th -

Please be advised that the Phoenix City Court ruled today that The Schill Law Group on behalf of their client The Lexus Project will be allowed to intervene on behalf of a dog named Mickey! This means Mickey will have an attorney fighting for him in Court!

The Vicious Dog Hearing that had been scheduled for March 13, has now been continued until March 25 at 8:30am

It just gets betterer and betterer!


  1. "Sure, maybe YOU don't support Mickey nor would you own a Pit Bull, but the framework is all yours!"

    I think you'll piss some people off with this argument, but you're absolutely right.

  2. Kill Mickey. I'm sorry Mickey had a bad life, but way sadder that a little boy was nearly mauled to death. And now the nutters have invented that Mickey had a bone and was starving and Kevin took the bone. Only a total moron would think a four year old could wrest a bone away from a pit bull. That literally could not happen. Ever. Mickey bit Kevin because Kevin was the first person in a long time to come within chain range. That is the only reason.

  3. People wouldn't have to make such a big hairy deal of their dog wuv if they'd keep their dogs in their houses or otherwise under control. I know some dogs are too big to keep in houses, but that's why people who live in apartments or on small tracts of land shouldn't have those kinds of dogs... with a few exceptions. There actually are some responsible people out there who will put the time into their pet to take care of its needs without infringing on the rights of others. But, they are, regrettably, a very small minority.

    Mickey's former owner pretty much sounds like a lowlife type of person, so I guess we can't expect much out of him as far as responsible pet ownership. It may be the baby sitter naively thought she could get Mickey to behave and was unable to do it. In any case, Mickey should have been confiscated from SOMEONE before this tragic incident with Kevin occurred.

    Since Mickey was not confiscated until after a human being was viciously mauled, then Mickey's time on earth is done. Anyone who can't see why this should be so is immersed in magical thinking and should not be allowed to qualify as an adult. I think a lot of people who SAY that Mickey should be saved know that he should not be, but they are not going to admit that.

  4. I think all of the big three factors are largely related to the billions of dollars that are at stake. A dog is a huge profit center for several industries. And profits tend to come before people.
    Madison Avenue has managed to reduce half the population to Manchurian Candidate mode--they've gotta have that dog and they've gotta make the world dog-centric.
    The truth is there is a sizeable silent plurality that have remained sane. However, the price of this sanity is eternal vigilance. People opposing dog madness need to support one another and resolve to never curl up and be victims.
    This has nothing to do with actual hate of dogs, it really is hate of dog owner idiocy and cruelty. Most animal abuse is committed by dog owners. No-kill shelters are also often guilty of gross abuse, by keeping dogs in overcrowded conditions for months, and/or adopting them out to a series of temporary "rescuers" sometimes even in far-away locations, in climates the dog is unaccustomed to, or foisting them on unfit adopters, or temporarily modifying the dog's unacceptable behavior so some hapless human will take the dog off their hands. And then the dog nutters have the gall of criticizing sites such as this one. I am willing to bet the vast majority of "dog haters" have never harmed an animal and have far higher ethical standards than the dog nutters..
    Thanks for your site.

    1. Excellent comments. Thanks for your reply. I may even bump it up to an essay if you are ok with that.
