Why do these hate groups hate victims?

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

My name is Maggie Bain and I am the host of the 2nd Annual Event for Victims of pit bulls and other dangerous dogs.
I actually came about hosting this event due to a personal incident that occurred in our family last year. I am a previous pit bull owner. My boyfriend and I moved in with each other in December of 2010 and he had a 4 year old pit bull named Bexar. He was a well- trained, well mannered, great with children, and he was our family pet. November 2012 my dog mauled my 5 year old cousin, right in front of our eyes, unprovoked and nearly killed him. He has been through 12 surgeries and is scheduled for another next month on the 19th. I will attach the detailed story of what happened, along with pictures of my little cousin’s journey. His name is Gavin. I will also attach pictures of my dog's everyday life and pictures of Gavin and my dog playing and laying on the couch together. I feel like the pictures hit home for a lot of people.
My goal in hosting this event is to show these victims and their families from all over the world, the support they deserve, along with giving them a voice to share their stories. I am also looking to spread awareness on the potential dangers of subjecting yourself and/or your children around a dangerous breed/ type of dog, EVEN IF the dog is raised well and has been around children their whole life, as Bexar was. I do feel that it is very dangerous to choose a pit bull as a family pet, especially if there are children in the home.
In regards to the recent accusations that involved me, Maggie Bain, making threats directed towards a local pit bull rescue, the Pistons and Pits Charity Car Show, and the Children’s Literacy Event, are extremely false.
As the director of The 2nd Annual Event for Victims of pit bulls and other dangerous dogs, I assure you that I personally did not make any phone calls or threats stating I was going to show up to the Children’s Literacy Event “wrapped in bandages and covered in blood” protesting that a pit bull was attending. I also did not make these threats to the Pistons and Pits Charity Car Show, or their sponsors, which was scheduled for October 19th, 2013, which is the same day as The Second Annual Event for Victims and other dangerous dogs.

Unfortunately I cannot control others actions and I cannot promise that someone else did not follow through with these threats, but I can tell you as the director of The Second Annual Event for Victims of pit bulls and other dangerous dogs, that I did/do not condone or encourage anyone to make these threats.
I would like to thank Simmons and Fletcher P.C. for sponsoring this event and also apologize to them for the recent phone calls, emails and negative publicity they have received due to false accusations of me threatening the pro pit bull events.
I would also like to apologize to Jump for Joys for the negative publicity they have received due to false accusations of me threatening the pro pit bull events.
And I would also like to thank PJ's Softball Park for allowing us to rent their park out and apologize to them for the negative publicity, phone calls and emails they have received due to false accusations of me threatening the pro pit bull events.
Thank you!

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
24 dead by dog attack so far in 2013.
Pit bull type dogs killed twenty-two of them. Fifteen of the twenty-two dead are children. 
Stars indicate people killed by a ‘family’ pit bull – ones that had been raised and cherished as an indoor pet, ‘never showed aggression before’, and knew the victim.

Child fatalities by pit bull type dog (14):
Christian Gormanous - 4 yrs old
Isaiah Aguilar - 2 yrs old
Ryan Maxwell - 7 yrs old **
Dax Borchardt - 14 mos old **
Monica Laminack - 21 mos old **
Tyler Jett - 7 yrs old
Jordyn Arndt - 4 yrs old **
Beau Rutledge - 2 yrs old **
Ayden Evans- 5 yrs old **
Nephi Selu – 6 yrs old **
Arianna Jolee Merrbach – 5 yrs old
Daniel (surname as yet not revealed) – 2 yrs old (Gilbert, Arizona) **
Samuel Eli Zamudio – 2 yrs old**
Boy, name not yet released – 5 yrs old (Baker, Oregon)**

Adult fatalities by pit bull type (8):
Betty Todd - 65 yrs old **
Elsie Grace - 91 yrs old **
Claudia Gallardo - 38 yrs old
Pamela Devitt - 63 yrs old
Carlton Freeman - 80 yrs old
Linda Oliver – 63 yrs old
James Harding - 62 yrs old - chased into traffic by two attacking pit bulls
Juan Campos – 96 yrs old

(1 non-pit type killing) [Rachel Honabarger - 35 yrs old - mauled to death by her own GSD mix]
(1 husky-mix killing, unknown if the other half of the dog was pit bull) [Jordan Lee Reed – 5 yrs old]

Two of the pit bull type dogs were BULL mastiffs, ie 40% pit-fighting bulldog.

If 20 of 24 dead were killed by pit bull attack, that's 83% dead by pit attack, 9% dead by 'molosser', 4% by some kind of GSD mix, 4% by a husky + possibly pit mix

If you count the pit-mix mastiffs as pit bull types, that's 92% killed by attacking pit bull types. Pit types are only about 5% of the entire dog population.

The man who ran into traffic kept pit bulls himself. He knew perfectly well what the two stranger pit bulls that were chasing him would do if they caught him, so he preferred to risk a swift death by oncoming car
