Stupid Law Alert

My dog has been attacked by both a pit bull and a german shepherd for no cause so I am not exactly attacking this law my because I am a dog lover. I am attacking it because it is arbitrary. A 20 pound limit? I own a pug. The largest of the TOY breed. She weighs 22 pounds and she is all muscle not fat. One of her greatest loves in life is to lick bare feet. Because you have committed a crime, paid your debt to society, you will now be deprived of man's best friend.
CONTRA COSTA COUNTY / Limits on felons owning dogs get OK / Supervisors vote to support ban on aggressive animals: "The Contra Costa County board of supervisors unanimously supported on Tuesday prohibiting convicted felons from owning any dog that is aggressive or weighs more than 20 pounds, making it all but certain the proposal will become law when it formally comes before the board for approval Nov. 15."
By these rules, they can never have a Bassett, collie, spaniel, or bulldog and a St. Bernard would be totally out of their range. It is not the size of the dog that is important here, as anyone who has been bitten by a chihuahua can attest. They should be prevented from owning aggressive dogs, not breeds or size.

At the rate this country is going, people who have EVER committed an infraction will soon be prevented from living life without a monitor, will have to live in a segregated section of town, allowed no children, not able to vote, never to be forgiven. Nice country we have here. You already can't get a job or a decent place to live unless you meet certain credit requirements, thereby ensuring that there is always a permanent underclass that can be added to at will.

Wonder when the official declaration that we are serfs and indentured servants will come.
