That's more than the next 7 most dangerous dog breeds combined.

I've always said no one should have a bull dog around kids. Now I do. She's the sweetest dog in the world she sleeps with my kids and watches over them like they were hers.

I keep telling myself she's a boxer.
The only problem with statistics like that, is that people who couldn't tell an amstaff apart from a pitbull would definitely describe it as a pitbull anyway. One always have to take those things into account as well, and they do skew the statistics up a bit. They're not as reliable as they should be.
