Putting an end to Breed Specific Legislation

“Guilty Til Proven Innocent” is a documentary film that examines Breed Specific Legislation – laws that single-out certain breeds or types of dogs, namely ‘pit bulls’, as inherently dangerous or vicious.

Using Ohio’s 25 year statewide law that restricted the ownership of ‘pit bull’ dogs passed in the summer of 1987 and the effect it had on local municipalities, this film focuses on the Cleveland suburb – Lakewood, Ohio, as it proposes and passes a ban in 2008, and the subsequent enforcement and repeal ten years later.

The documentary asks the important question:
“Do we have a dangerous dog breed problem, or just dangerous laws targeting dogs”
