KCTV5 story on bit bull app: It is understandable the owner could not afford the test.

TV 5 should have conducted the DNA test on the two confiscated dogs to help determine the accuracy of the app.

As it stands, the story is (as usual) incomplete.

I love how pit Owner's immediately start equivocating. But, but, but, they aren't pitbulls, they're uh, uhhh, labs, yeah, labs and a bull mastiff, or I don't know. Jeez. You're worried about affording a DNA test to get your pit back but you have babies in the home? I mean to tell you, ya can't fix stupid. I've literally never met an educated, intelligent, or respectful pit Owner. To a tee, they are: PWT (like in story), ghetto thugs, supremely stupid, wanna bes. Nothing else. I don't mind dogs, but that breed needs to be eradicated.
