anyone know how to disable anti lock brakes?

Hi, I'm new here. is anyone else frustrated with having anti-lock brakes on their bmw?? I just recently hit a dog and I know I could have stopped faster if only the brakes would have locked up. and, it's absolutely terrifying driving on the snow, even with snow tires. help!! I want to disable the system so I can have control of the car, like a real car!! ie, no electronic overrides! 325xi.
