In this transcript, we have the Montgomery County Board of Education's attorney asking a parent, "Well, did they wipe the pit bull down with Handi Wipes before bringing him into the house?"
We offer no explanation why such a question would ever be asked of anyone. Ever. We have no idea how this relates to the special education services that a child receives in public school as part of their free, appropriate education.
We leave it up to the animal rights activists to debate the use of Handi Wipes on dogs.
The Board of Education's attorney also asks a number of questions that seem to infer that pit bulls are inherently dangerous dogs, and that any parent that allows their child to be near one is less than a good parent. We leave this to the Maryland pit bull Task Force for their comment.
We do remind readers that the Board of Education pays its outside counsel approximately $6,000 a day to represent them in these hearings. Clearly, it is in the attorneys' interest to extend out the time of the hearing. Your tax dollars at work.
