Apr 17, 2012 Pekin cop attacked by pit bull

The article notes the city codes for designating a dog dangerous and vicious.  These codes are taken verbatim from Anna's Law, the state law which allows dogs like Chaos the pit bull to bite 3 people before being removed from the owner and put down (fingers crossed).  Anna's Law protects dangerous dogs and owners like the one in the following story whose stated credo is "I can do whatever the f--- I want."

Pekin – A city police officer making an arrest was injured when attacked by an unruly suspect’s pit bull Sunday morning.
(T)he dog, Chaos, was taken into custody by Tazewell County Animal Control. Jolly said the dog had been deemed “dangerous,” for biting people twice before. In January 2001, an 18-year-old was bitten on the face, causing puncture wounds; in October, a 20-year-old was bitten on the nose and face, causing lacerations.
