Who is Stretch?

Did you read or see the news on two men and their pit bull? If you have, you would know this much... Andrew Gariety, 21, and James Emerson, 19, sicced their pit bull Stretch on two couples at a Chevron gas station on fourth plain.Stretch jumped into a car, but he hurt no-one. James and Andrew were found walking half a block away from the gas station and were then arrested on suspicion of assault and criminal mischief. Stretch was barking and growling at the officers during the arrests, but still never attempted to hurt anyone. They make it sound like it was for fun, but guess what? Wrong! The media exaggerated the truth and were given false information, most likely by the "witnesses". Even though the witnesses were. as some might say, the "victims". But did the media ever say what started everything? No! Here's what happened according to James Emerson, the owner of Stretch...James Emerson, Andrew Gariety and Stretch were walking to the Chevron, when a truck almost hit them. James being drunk, started yelling that they needed to learn how to drive, and so on. Then when they got to the Chevron, the truck that almost hit them was there. One of the teenagers got out of the truck and started yelling at James, trying to start a fight with him. With all of the yelling that was going on, Stretch got irritated. He started barking and growling at the guy that was yelling at James, as any loyal dog would. Stretch was acting as if he was just trying to scare the guy so he would leave James alone. The only thing done wrong was when Stretch jumped into one of the other cars at the gas station, but he immediately jumped back out. Nobody seems to know exactly why he jumped into the car though. But according to the media, Stretch is a vicious pit bull, a threat to society. They are even trying to say he is a trained killer. The media and people who don't personally know Stretch think he deserves to be locked up an eventually put to sleep. They think that it's better to treat him as a dangerous criminal instead of a dog.But those who have ever spent any time with Stretch, don't just think differently, they know differently. They have seen him through his good days and his bad. But no matter what mood he is in, he will always be a sweet, caring and very loyal dog. He is extremely friendly to everyone, including children and dog-friendly cats. Stretch deserves to live. He doesn't deserve to be locked up, he never hurt anybody. Which is a fact according to the police and the media as well. Stretch's loyalty to his owner, James Emerson, is so strong that he is considered a threat. In a situation like this, I guess you could say Stretch is all bark no bite. Because it's only common sense that if any medium or large breed dog wanted to hurt someone or something, they easily could and would. The only way he would ever hurt anybody is if James Emerson's life was in immediate danger. And dogs aren't stupid. They know when to use their strength, just as any human does. Some do use it stupidly, but Stretch never has. So there is no real reason for him to be kept on his hold at the humane society. If he had actually bit anyone, or it was proven that he tried to bite someone, then there would be every right to keep him at the humane society. But if these people knew Stretch at all, they would know that no one was in real danger. It was just a big scare, and keeping him locked up this long is punishment enough.
