Message posted on Facebook:  Hosted by Badges for Bullies, this is our first official public screening of the completed film. In attendance will be several of the interviewed people who made this film possible, including Cleveland Councilman Matt Zone and both of the filmmakers, Jeff Theman (Director/Producer) and Bryan Porter (Editor/Producer).

The Capitol Theatre on Cleveland's west side seats up to 422 people, and we do expect this screening to sell out. The event kicks off at 2:30 for pre-film socializing, and the film will promp
tly start at 3, so be in your seats! Immediately following the film, we will be meeting at the Happy Dog, for food, drinks and socializing - Come join us there too!

    This was an extremely great documentary that educated the public on the dynamics that some prominent politicians, counsel members and mean spirited and prejudice police have done to make sure that Pit Bulls are given a bad reputation. Interviews with what the owners of Pit Bulls and "Pit Bull Look Alike" dogs have had to go through and are continuing to go through. The legislators and the lies that these people told on camera was very revealing. Even with legislation improving, it had not done much to improve the conditions for Pit Bulls, and Pit bull look-alikes. Lakewood still refuses to lift their Ban. Totally ridiculous! Yet there are over 80 sex offenders living in Lakewood and all Lakewood officials are concerned about are people owning a Pit Bull, which they said on camera will keep their city safe by keeping the Ban intact!

      touche, sandie! EXACTLY, EXACTLY, to the T, this is EXACTLY, EXACTLY what i've been up against in numerous communities w/ the deer issue. EXACTLY!! Only the Neanderthal state of Ohio is mired in profit and good 'ol boys hunt mentality (ENTIRE BOARD OF DIRECTORS ARE HUNTERS!) to expect change in my lifetime. I'm struck with the EXACT parallel of all the same hateful council people, haters, etc. in this movie, and EXACTLY what I see in one community after another in NE Ohio re: the urban deer issue. Where are the activists re: this issue? Would it fill up a theater? Pack a council room? Where is the support? It's not only companion animals and factory farmed animals, vivisection or entertainment animals that need our help; it's the wildlife!!!!!!!!!!

      Unfortunately the NRA and their supportive groups of people are not willing to commit to taking a stand on the urban deer issue. Lucy, maybe it will take a group of talented video filming people who can do a complete documentary too on what is really happening. It is very frustrating. My best guess is that it is going to change. More and more people are aware of it. And as one of the people said in the 'Guilty til Proven Innocent', the more people hear about it, the more publicity it gets and even if it fails a few times earlier, it picks up momentum. It may not be the most comforting thought, but we aren't done yet! Thank you for your heart felt comments. Maybe someone will see your comment and come forward to help!

    Cleveland Councilman Matt Zone and both of the filmmakers, Jeff Theman (Director/Producer) and Bryan Porter (Editor/Producer) did a superb job. This documentary should be seen across the entire United States. Excellent work.
