Please do tell how the statistics are being manipulated to “lie”.
Let me guess: You have a pit bull.

OK, I'm telling your husband, yourself and the 3 useless people with the pit bull that Pit Bulls do not have jaws that "lock".

On of the most popular misconceptions about “pit bull” dogs is that they, unlike other dogs, lock their jaws.
Here’s the reality: According to Dr. I. Lehr Brisbin of the University of Georgia, no dog, of any breed or mix, has an anatomical structure in their jaw that functions as a locking mechanism.

Dr. Brisbin said:
“We found that the American pit bull terriers did not have any unique mechanism that would allow these dogs to lock their jaws.There were no mechanical or morphological differences. . .”
OKAY, BUT WHAT ABOUT THEIR BITING POWER?
The media and other outlets often say that “pit bull” dogs have a massive biting power measuring in the thousands of pounds of pressure per square inch (PSI).
As for my comment on Dobies:

The top 10 breeds of the 1970s were:

Poodle
German shepherd
Doberman pinscher
Beagle
Dachshund
Irish setter
Cocker spaniel
Miniature schnauzer
Labrador retriever
Collie

Dobies were everywhere and the same type of people who owned Dobies then are the same type of people that own Pits now. And it's not "SWJ"s who own Pits these days. Dobies are now around 15-20 in the most popular dog breeds and are now seemingly in the hands of responsible owners.

I know their jaws don’t lock.
They still manage to do more damage than any other breed with their jaws and teeth and kill more people and pets.
Just a couple of days ago.
