they just have a bad rep because they have been known to be the meanest and most aggressive one out of the bunch. in my opinion they aren't a bad dog just the people raising them. they need to learn how to train them properly.
They get a bad rap because when they do attack another dog or a human, they do a very good job at it (attacking). Sure, other breeds attack, but do they leave behind the damage that a pit does? Usually not. That's why.
