Pit bull advocate, wife beater, failed Illinois gubernatorial candidate, anti-violence community activist, and Best Friends flunkie puppet - TIO HARDIMAN!
"Well, I'm not a convicted felon. I have no convictions in my background….But the thing is, I'm a good man. I've overcome a lot of obstacles in my personal life. And there's not one person in the entire world who doesn't have relationship issues. So, I'm not trying to be a perfect individual because I'm running for governor." from my fox chicago
Like pit bulls, Hardiman is just misunderstood and "desensitized".
"I was motivated to start the program in 2007 when I began to encounter more people abusing pit bull type dogs by fighting them. I always had a big heart for pit bulls because they’re some of the most misunderstood dogs in the world. Some people demonize pit bulls before they are even born. This upsets me. Growing up in the projects and witnessing acts of violence on a regular basis kind of desensitizes people." from stubbydog.org

Bree Walker born Patricia Lynn Nelson on February 26, 1953, pictured on the left in the 1980's before her bizarre journey into the world of cosmetic surgery. The photo on the right was taken last week at the Orange County Sheriff where she was charged with driving under the influence. Walker's pit bull was with her at the time and was also taken into custody without incident.
Walker admits to having trouble saying no to booze and has been in rehab. I'd say by the looks of the amount of cosmetic surgery which actually made her LESS attractive, she has trouble with other addictions as well.

Big Vinny Girolamo 12.05.47 - 09.12.79
After the completion of his military service in 1966, Girolamo joined the Hell's Angels and became the sergeant-at-arms of the Manhattan chapter. He is responsible for the club's motto "When in Doubt, Knock 'em Out" and their insignia "Evil Force".
On September 21, 1977, 22 year old waitress/girlfriend Mary Ann Campbell died after Girolamo pushed her from the roof of a 6 story building. That night, the drunken Girolamo was also accused of attempting to rape two other members. Girolamo was charged with Campbell's murder but before he could stand trial, he died from an injury to his spleen after a dispute turned physical with Oakland Hell's Angel President Michael "Irish" O'Farrell.
Girolamo is featured prominently in this fascinating documentary about the outlaw biker gang. Hurricane Vinny enjoys third billing, right after Sonny Barger and Sandy Alexander.

August 15, 1950 -
In 2001, the princess became the first senior member of the royal family to have a criminal record after she was convicted under the 1991 Dangerous Dog Act for the attack on two children in Windsor Great Park. In addition to this attack, Princess Anne's bull terriers attacked the maid, another dog at an outdoor event and one of the Queen's corgi's which resulted in the death of the royal dog. The Queen banished her daughter's bull terriers.

"Anyone can become angry. That is easy. But to be angry with the right person, to the right degree, at the right time, for the right purpose and in the right way - that is not easy." – Aristotle
A few years ago, I experienced a serious pitbull attack that led to countless personal losses, I found myself outraged at the system that had enabled such attacks to occur in the first place. I mean isn’t Government supposed to protect innocent people from such unnecessary brutal and violent assaults? It didn’t take long for me to discover why, I soon learned there was an aggressive and outraged pitbull advocacy movement that had influenced Government and prevented reasonable protective legislation from being implemented. So I turned to social media to interact with these people, only to realize that they felt they were the aggrieved party, even though they had suffered no permanent physical injury, as I had, they had not lost the ability to walk or care for themselves for a substantial amount of time, as I had, they had suffered no large financial losses, as I had, they had never faced years of legal wrangling to seek compensation for their losses, as I had and they had not lost their business as I had. The only loss it appears they had incurred is that people hurt their feelings because they were critical of the breed of dog they had chosen as a companion animal. And yet their outrage was as if someone had murdered their entire family. This disproportionate over reaction struck me as incredibly bizarre and until now I hadn’t been able to understand it sufficiently.
