Pitbulls Terrorize Amarillo

Pitbulls are savaging Amarillo. These animals are killing our pets. These beasts are attacking our peaceful citizens. There have been editorials. There have been many letters to the editor, including two more today, yet still these ruthless, illiterate creatures are brutalizing our community.

While these animal attacks are real are we focusing on them not for themselves but because of something else? In psychology there is a defense mechanism called “projection,” where a patient or even an entire society will project onto another individual or group issues they cannot admit or resolve.

Our entire community is being abused by something beyond our control. Our sensibilities are savaged by uncivilized brutes every week and we are told we can do nothing.

We could call the humane society, but not all pitbulls have four legs.
