Pit Bulls Maul Woman & Her Dogs



“And there was a man walking by with crutches, so I grabbed the crutches and started hitting the dog. The crutches broke. The dog didn't let go. I saw a baseball bat lying in the lawn and used that. I started swinging the bat at the dogs and hit all three of them before they finally let go.” ~~ Eric Eagan, witnessed attack

“The owner of the dogs stood back just screaming and yelling and not lifting a finger or doing anything to control his own dogs.” ~~ Lois Vine, witnessed attack

I agree scats. What ever happen to the time when greece was the place to be? Where are the schools that used to rank high. Is it true that athena once ranked in the top 100 schools in the country? If so, the fall has been embarassing. The school is now in trouble with the state for not meeting ayp. Will we see history repeat itself with the new odyssey?

All dogs are basically " Pack animals" by nature. As such when someone ones two or more dogs their natural instincts are easily accessed when a perceived threat is encountered. When aroused, they will attack the threat as a group. Pit bulls are not vicious as a breed. However, any dog who is mistreated and restrained can revert to it's primal instincts. They become vicious because the owner has caterered to those instincts by mistreating and not feeding the animals.
In this case, two other dogs entering their 'territory" would constitute a threat. The problem with the pit bull breed is their basic dislike for other breeds of dogs. Otherlarge breeds have the same problem with smaller animals
As I see it, first there is no reasonable reason for someone to keep three pit bulls unless you have an anterior motive.Three pit bulls together is akin to three loaded guns. these type of owners a aware of that fact.
In my opinion, the owner should be held responsible for the actions of these dogs who were doing what any pack dogs would do. I always hate to see a dog put down because of bad ownership. However, in this case if I suspect was the case, they are better off being put down. My only regret is the fact that the owner wasn'PUT DOWN as well.

Urban spall has invaded Greece. Get used to it. This town and it's schools will never be the same. So it makes no sence to lament about what used to be.The towns of Irondeqouit and Henrietta have the same problem
As it stands now, some parts of the City have become more attractive as a nice place to live than parts of Greece. May be the smart move for some of us is to move back to the city to find a better quality of life than what exists today and in the future for this town. Just a thought!

SCATS said...

To 1:49PM ~~ Get used to it?? You are just going to roll over and play dead? By all means please take your family back to the city and try out that school system. Then you might understand why some of us care enough to try to get things corrected before Greece becomes as bad.

How to you proposed to stop it Scats. I wasn''t referring to the city school system. That is a lost cause. What would you suggest SOME of us do to make things better before it' gets worse. I am all eyes to see your plan to reverse a trend that has been going on for the past ten years in this town? GET REAL !!! This blog site is a lot of talk, criticsim and will have no impact on bringing about change what ever your idea of positive change might be.The numbers don't lie. This town is ciircling the bowel and there is no lawfull way to stop it.
The current demographic changes taking place in this town is like a cancer and will continue.
By the way I have no intention to move back to the city as I never lived there in the first place. I have always been a resident of Greece as where my parents.so again, please tell us your thoughts on how to stop things before they get worse, I would be more than glad to get involved and help.

If you dont realize it the decline of urban centers is what is called white flight. Instead of running away what is the problem with coexisiting? What has happened is that to get away from"them folks" e.g b.lacks and latinos, white have moved further and further away to find thier own utopia, the unfortunate thing is that the further and further whites move away the consequences of their failure to coexisit will be forever their burden, whether it is through taxes or crime or terrible education, or more prisons. So until you actually embrace your subconsciece racism, the problems of Greece, or Irondequoit, or Henrietta will just be passsed on to future generations.

Scats, I understand where you are coming from. The poster who talked about some areas of the city being ecologically better than some areas of Greece not far off.
I to would like to see something done to reduce the ever changing landscape of Greece. There is no doubt that our schools are already being impacted by these changes.
I believe we are powerless in curtailing of the city culture that has come to Greece. However, I do believe we can have a positive impact on improving the learning environment of our schools. We the residents, parents and taxpayers hold the key and power to make it happen.
When I was on the school board , the one thing that I could never fathom was the lack of parental participation at board meetings. The only organized group was the special education parents who came to meetings and complained about how their kids were being treated. You know it finally paid off as it forced the district to enter into a consent agreement between special Ed parents and the school district.
However, in my 3 years on the board, I do not remember one parent complaining to the board about their child's education. There in lies the problem.
Until parents start getting involved and put pressure on the board and super nothing will change

Joe Moscato said...

I meant to include this in my last post but the dinner bell rang.
There is a little know section in SED law that would be one way to put pressure on the Board and administration to take positive action to create a better learning environment at some of our under performing schools. In that section it states that any parent whose child is attending an under performing school in the district, can request that their child be transferred to a better performing school. The district is obligated to honor that request on a""Space Available" stipulation. This is one fact that the administration would prefer to remain in a stealth mode.
Can you imagine the problems that would present the district with if they received a bunch of such requests?
While seemingly unrealistic, it certainly would put enormous pressure on the Board and Administration to take measures to correct the factors contributing to the failure of that school as well as it's student body.
I mention this fact to illustrate that parents do have the ability see that their children all get a quality education if they choose to take advantage of this option.

Joe ~~ Parents already do that. Thus the HUGE waiting lists for Pine Brook.

Joe said...

Scats I realize that. However, Pine brook currently is a SOC with a predetermined population for the entire school year. Unless you have" connections" chances of success are extremely doubtful. I was referring to our middle and high schools. The secondary options for those schools is still in effect but I believe next year due to budget. Shortfalls they will be history as some sports and music programs. I believe that DW kept the secondary option for this year to handle requests. What is really germaine to thes requests is the reason the parent wants their child to attend a better performing school.
I remain convinced that until the parents demand that the district effectively deal with the discipline problems at these schools.
When I was a member of the GPD, there was motto through out the law enforcement community that " if you deal with the little things you may never have to deal with the big things". I am afraid that our district has not figured that out and eventually, well, let' s just leave it at that and hope for the best.

I know this is hard for some of you to accept but we have to have econimci poltical and social reform in our area to make headway. We need better jobs for many and a culture of equal respect. And we need to get rid of the folks in power and the smug attitudes of rochester elites. It is not a matter of republican or democrat we have in the not so recent past examples of republicans who were for civil rights equal and inexpensive educational access for all. But it is a matter of getting rid of these republicans and fake democrats running the show.

SCATS said...

Joe ~~ I believe the BOE & DO have next year's budget covered. Between reimbursements for buses, etc. and the sale of one or more empty school building, they will squeeze through yet another budget without having to cut the things they should have cut first.

The anticipated sale of Kirk Rd School did not materialize at least with one potential buyer. As far as West Ridge is concerned, questions remain as to owns what at that site.Crista at one time owned a piece of that site.
Second, considering the zoning in that area commercial development with exception of Condos or a Town house project would be a long shot
Residential development would not be attractive to a builder because of the decreasing values of the current properties..Barnard school would also face environmental as well as limited use capability.
With exception of Kirk Rd. the other properties would be Tuff sells.In my opinion.
Let's hope your right and buyers are found.. However, let's pray that any of these properties don't end up in the hands of HUD. JOE

SCATS, are you going to respond to 3:27?

SCATS said...

To 1:46PM ~~ Anyone who has followed this BLOG for any period of time is well aware of the many things I've proposed. There's an archive. Feel free to search it. Hint: look for my idea about getting rid of those who are stealing school services.

SCATS that is no way to speak about members of the Greece Teacher's Union or their enablers from the Administrators Union.

You know damn well you wouldn't be getting the catnip you are today if it weren't for Unions!

1:46 why not respond yourself? Not only do you wish to be an unknown, you want to hide behind Scats, What's the matter the"C A T got your tongue ?

SCATS said...

To 1:34AM ~~ Actually, I'm referring to the hundreds of "students" who are faking their residence.

Anonymous said...

Think how desperate a student must be to fake his/her residence to attend a GCSD school and matriculate toward moronism.

12:05 They are trying to escape the violence that is even worse in the city schools. Do you blame them? We have violence here but it is not as dangerous as the city schools even at the elementary level. And if there is no way to prove they are not real Greece residents, then we are obligated to teach these students. Is the city truant officer looking for these supposedly city residents? So rochester is ok with them being here.

If only sweet Tyler Scrimshaw had been there with his hockey stick.
That boy would have solved the nasty Pit Bull situation right then and there.

The Town should hire Tyler as a Dog Catcher.
