    Well from the link that was posted:

    After the car stopped, she tried to hold the cup securely between her knees while removing the lid. However, the cup tipped over, pouring scalding hot coffee onto her.

    It all comes down to personal responsibility and in some cases gratuitous displays of stupidity. Go after the individual that is irresponsibly keeping a pet or the irresponsible breeder. Heck, regulate breeding so we can end puppy mills and backyard breeders who are a large part of the problem with aggressive dogs. Instead we are going with the group blame (see the myriad posts I have done in other areas of CU on this BS approach to life in general) and putting people in a position to explain to their 7 year old why Sparky, the beloved family pit bull, has to die.

    So, did you ignore everything else in that link? She was found to be 20% responsible.

    I wish my parents would have sued for everything they could have. I had a teacher punch me in the face in 5th grade, and knock me out. My parents were scared to make a scene in our city, and did not do a single thing. Guy was never even fired.

    I swear, I really did not. It was on a field trip, and a kid and I were power walking to get this certain seat on a bus. Teacher said, “I told you not to run”. I said ” I was not running I was walking fast”. Bam, laid out on the ground. It is quite comical looking back on it now, but still I wish they would have sued the school district, I could be in a ferrari right now. If I got even 100k in 5th grade, imagine how much that would be now.

    The PETA sauce (previous page) isn’t too hot… but their hot sauce is about Tabasco-level. FWIW. :D

    back on the original topic, an update from a Capitol Square news publication…

    Yates, Webster Announce Pit Bull Legislation

    State Reps. Tyrone K. Yates (D-Cincinnati) and Shawn Webster (R-Hamilton) Monday announced a joint effort to craft a comprehensive approach to Ohio’s pit bull issue.

    “I introduced legislation to ban pit bulls as a springboard for discussion on a vital public safety issue for Ohio,” Yates said. “Pit bulls raised in urban neighborhoods to be aggressive pose a threat to our children and our communities, and I am serious about stopping this dangerous practice.”

    Webster, a practicing veterinarian, agreed to work with Yates after the introduction of Yates’ HB568.

    Both representatives have a history of addressing vicious animal issues. Yates first engaged the pit bull issue as chair of the Cincinnati City Council Law and Public Safety Committee in the mid 1990’s. Webster is sponsor of HB366, which removes pit bulls from the definition of “vicious dogs.”

    “I appreciate Rep. Yates’ willingness to work on compromise language together,” Webster said. “Many pit bulls are good family pets owned by responsible people. Local communities should be able to decide what is best for their residents, and I believe there should be exceptions made for responsibly-owned, good-citizen pit bulls.”

    Hundreds of people have called or emailed both representatives about their respective legislation. Several cities – including Cincinnati, Toledo and Lakewood – have responded to a series of pit bull attacks by considering restrictions or outright bans on the breed.

    “My goal has never been to seize family pets,” Yates said. “We want to address this danger to our urban areas while respecting the rights of responsible dog owners. I’m glad constituents have contacted me about their concerns as we engage in this important dialogue, which will hopefully lead to comprehensive legislation protecting gentle family pets while putting a stop to the violent training of pit bulls.”

    Very interesting. And thanks for the heads up. I’ve never understood the obligation to retreat under those circumstances — seems to me if I’m in my home, I’ve pretty much already retreated.
