Dogs as Weapons Banned. Goodbye Dukinfield Rent-a-Mob?

The home secretary, Alan Johnson has introduced a wave of new laws to update the Dangerous Dogs Act. The changes include new rules to control vicious dogs aimed at problem inner city areas. This includes banning the use of vicious dogs as weapons. Speaking to the Metro newspaper, Alan Johnson said:

"The vast majority of dog owners are responsible, but there is no doubt that some people breed and keep dogs for the sole purpose of intimidating others, in a sense using dogs as a weapon.

"It is this sort of behaviour that we will not tolerate; it is this sort of behaviour that we are determined to stop."

Ah so that makes me wonder what is going to happen to Councillor John Taylor's private security vigilante force, Peak Close Protection which go around with Rottweiler dogs with the intention to intimidate youths on the council estates of Tameside.
