    IMHO, it is like allowing them to play with a loaded Uzi.  All people that I know who have them have stories about having to break up dog fights involving their pit bulls.  If they were not tough, nasty, and unpredictable, why are they the fashion accessory in every center of gang activity in our nation's urban settings?

      not human aggressive. Yes, there are incidents where these dogs have attacked people, but the most dog bites in the US are not from pit bulls, but from Labrador Retrievers.
      They are not "tough, nasty and unpredictable" any more than any dog that is not properly trained and handled from birth.
