I can't speak for your local Walmart but, for mine, I reckon me waving a bar of soap would be viewed as an agent of terror!!

I think the year after I visited, the Walmart near my sister's place had a gang shoot-out in the parking lot (the greeter got a hole in his car), and my sister wouldn't go there for months.

60 wonderful headlines about "Florida Man". If they've been posted here before, I apologise: I've only just now come across them!

just typed a longer reply and it's now erased/gone..grrr!..now short story. I'm a Brit living in Florida for years .Today I've learned that my ex american born neighbour has died up in New Jersey after a 'police incident' which resulted in his dog being shot dead (I used to walk my dog together) and him dying in custody. Comments I'm reading from on-line north state news more or less say...'Oh, ..a guy from Florida, all explained' Well what I know of him is that he was born and raised up there and his dog was a fun pup to walk with mine before they moved away.

Sad, but he was apparently drunk while driving a tractor trailer, and refused to stop, and the dog wasn't a "fun pup", it was a pitbull. I am sure most of them aren't a problem, but IMO they deserve their reputation.

Most dogs are what they are raised to be. A pit bull raised by a responsible owner can be just as friendly a pet as any dog raised in similar circumstances. The bad reputation comes from treatment at the hands of owners who should not be allowed near any animal.

I don't entirely agree, as IMO a few dogs are hard-wired to be aggressive. .... The same is true of humans.

Maybe "the wrong sort of owner" is disproportionately attracted to pitbulls. ... But my insurance company would disagree as pitbulls get a specific mention in the policy exclusions.

probably because humans have bred them that way.
