25. And once again, the breed is getting the blame instead of the owners
Heck, not only are the owners at fault, but in some ways the government is liable, since these dogs were already known to be a problem, having bitten before, and nothing done.

But the howling mob wants to go after an entire breed instead of the true culprits, the humans who owned the dogs, and the community that did nothing about the situation.
