Young Hero

I am really proud of 9 year old Drew Heredia, who after taking jiu jitsu classes for only 2 months, jumped on the back of a pit bull and applied a rear naked choke to save his younger sister who was under attack. He held onto the dog for a full 20 minutes before animal control officers arrived.

If you ask me, there is nothing more noble than risking your own safety to protect someone else. It happens so rarely anymore that it's touching to see it from a young boy, particularly considering that most adults would have run from an attacking pit bull. And even though talk of breed bans brings protesters out of the woodwork, I think that there should at least be very strict regulations regarding pit bull ownership. I can't believe how many people will jump up to defend pit bulls every time they attack somebody and swear that they are really very sweet dogs. The fact is that they are aggressive and dangerous and the world would be a better place without them.
