"Whether it's a breed specific ban on pit bulls... you know, my office has done studies and we've seen, by an almost three-to-one margin, the pit bull breed is one that's obviously more aggressive (and) has the most incidents of bites," he said.I'm sorry, what? City council offices don't generally do studies - researchers with degrees and knowledge about statistics and confidence intervals and correlation crap do studies. People who spend years analyzing data do studies. Your local city council member is not doing studies, at least none that are scientific.
I don't even have to tackle the 3:1 or "obviously more aggressive", because both are based on faulty logic. Even better, I don't have to argue against them because arguing against magical studies and made-up numbers is an exercise on silliness. If I want to have an exercise on silliness, I will watch my two dogs play.
