Genius Du Jour

About a week ago in the Minneapolis area, a 70 year old grandma wrestled a pit bull mix down a hill after it had killed her 13 year old schnauzer. The grandma had tried to get the dog off her schnauzer and was attacked in the process. The pit bull mix named Vicious was caught two days later and was put down today. The dog's owner, Jacquelyn English admitted that the dog escaped from her yard after her grand daughter left the gate open. Her son was interviewed for the Star Tribune story that ran today. Here are his thoughts on the matter:

English's son, 21-year-old Ronnie English, said Vicious "wasn't really vicious" and blamed Johnston for getting bit by his 70-pound dog.
"The lady socked him," the son said. "What kind of idiot really gets in the middle of a dog fight?"

There is a certain amount of contrition that you would expect from the owners of a dog that killed someone else's family pet. This isn't the right amount.
