Lots of dogs are fast, Monkey. Not just Pitties. And we shouldn't let the media win here and hold down a breed by feeding a false reputation and spreading the lock-jaw myth further.

Doggy daycares need to be run responsibly, by trained people, with sound methods and good pre-screening. The bad press when something happens should focus on not the breed of dog that it happened with, but how the place was run and who was involved. It should NEVER be one person in with a group of large dogs. There should always be two on hand at the least. Which is why you will find most places will not run 5 dogs at a time as financially it's not going to work. And while it's not all about the money, that has to factor at least a bit.
