This is being put below the fold because of autoplay on the video linked to.

Now one could say the dog was coming at the officers, however given the rate at which officers have been committing puppycide and that they were arresting him for video taping them in a public place.  They wanted an excuse to shoot his dog.  The man wouldn’t be convicted in court, but by god they killed his dog and he would think twice before documenting police action again!

Because when someone films you doing your job and you’re a cop, arrest them and kill their dog.  The arrest won’t stick, but the dog being dead sure will.

Accorti responded to a home Monday afternoon where a feral mother cat and her five kittens were living in a woodpile.

He allegedly told the homeowner that shelters were full and that the cats would be going to kitty heaven. He then pulled out his gun and shot the five, 8- to 10-week-old kittens.

Accorti allegedly told the homeowner that he isn’t supposed to do this, but it was justifiable. The woman ran into the house to shield her children, who were screaming and crying.

The police chief has justified the actions of the officer.  Why does this end up in the count?  Because if you or I had done the same thing and someone saw us, we would be arrested at minimum for reckless discharge of a firearm within city limits.  There was no immediate threat to life or even property and there were other methods to deal with the problem.

Further, you’re telling me that no one out in the middle of nowhere Ohio needs barn cats?  No this man exercised poor judgment and was looking for an excuse to exercise some trigger time on a living animal.  If it had been a dog the argument would be it was coming right for him.

I guess cops have decided that killing every dog they find is no longer enough, they’ve decided to move onto killing cats too.

Because reckless discharge of a firearm is only reckless if you’re not a cop and you make up a good reason, like “killing kittens that were coming right at you!”.  In that case you can do whatever you want and get away with it.

SSCC Boerne

A South Texas police officer has been put on administrative leave after being charged with shooting a neighbor’s cat with an arrow.
Police in Boerne said Officer Lance Deleon was not on duty when Bobby the cat was wounded.

Remember though, he is trustworthy and responsible enough to be trusted with a firearm while the rest of us should be left defenseless.

State Sponsored Criminal: Lance Deleon

Because animal cruelty is by no means anything to worry about with a man who is authorized to use lethal force against people.

Typical of Government…

Spend money in droves to solve a problem when they could be making money instead.  What am I talking about?

Killing seven members of a wolf pack that repeatedly attacked a Northeast Washington rancher’s cattle cost about $76,500, according to preliminary state figures.

You cannot obtain wolf tags within the state of Washington.  Not even depredation tags which would allow the wolves to be taken as they’re a problem to live stock.  Think about that for a second, instead of allowing the public to hunt, control, and otherwise reign in this problem, the state spends almost a half million dollars a year on the problem.

The best part is they aren’t even really maintaining the status quo, overall they’re loosing and the problem is getting worse.

Idaho finally got the right idea and made tags dirt cheap because odds are you won’t see a wolf, they’re too damn smart, but if you do see one, shoot the bastard!  As usual animal rights activists I’m sure will end up in an uproar because they live in places like LA or Seattle where they don’t get to experience the problem first hand.  If we could relocate the wolves so the animal lovers could live with the problem I’d be in full support.

As an FYI my buddies who went elk hunting in Idaho this year informed me the hunts were a total bust.  Why?  Wolf tracks were on the tail of any elk tracks they found.  The packs are out of control and decimating wildlife.  Remember though, according to the animal rights folks, all will work itself out.  Never mind there is no other predator to hunt the wolf, I guess their solution is the extinction of the elk and deer herds.

Lets not forget increasing the state deficit in Washington by having to pay farmers for damaged stock and then the state trying to hunt them down.  Know what’s easier?  Hunters will pay you for the opportunity.  Hell I would go out of my way a few times to go wolf hunting.

Begging for a caption…

Was browsing through raw images to play with in Photoshop and came across this picture of Snowflake… It’s begging for a caption, let’s hear them!

I would like to remind everyone this is free for non-commercial use.  AKA, if you post some place else it in an effort to make money off of it, you need to contact me and send some scratch my way.  I won’t say no, but like most working American’s, I don’t like people coming in and stealing my stuff.  Those who do that I feel are no better than the occupy hippies!

Continuing on My Series About the Food Chain

So I saw this today and wanted to make a quote of the day but just couldn’t figure out how.  The stupid is so heavy it hurts.

An Irvine resident is requesting that the city install a sign to memorialize the hundreds of fish killed in a traffic crash in early October as they were being taken to Irvine Ranch Market.

In the letter, Dina Kourda, on behalf of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, asks the city’s street maintenance superintendent to place the sign at the site of the crash on Walnut and Yale avenues.

I think my favorite though was this quote from the boy genius himself:

“Research tells us that fish use tools, tell time, sing, and have impressive long-term memories and complex social structures, yet fish used for food are routinely crushed, impaled, cut open, and gutted, all while still conscious. Sparing them from being tossed from a speeding truck and slowly dying from injuries and suffocation seems the least that we can do,” the letter continued.

Tell me, what hands do the fish use to pick up their “tools”?  They were food there sport and while you may be well intentioned, the fact is, death is a part of life and humans are omnivores.  That’s right, we eat both plants and animals.  You do realize a plant is a living organism too right?  It is the behavior of people like you who have created an environment where things like this occur.  Today I got a new one to add to the list.

Berlin authorities say they shot and killed a 120 kilogram (265-pound) wild boar after it attacked and injured four people including a police officer in a residential neighborhood.

I’m sure that Mr. Kourda weeps for the wild boar, that could have easily killed someone, and I’m sure he wishes that they erect a sign to remember the boar time immemorial.  This is what happens when animals stop viewing you as a predator.  We, as a species, have progressed to the point where many just go to the store and pick up food.  Many, like Mr. Kourda feel that it is no longer necessary to kill animals for food.

Well, here’s a random though, that pile of grain you eat because it’s not from the back of an animal?  How many mice were killed to prevent them from eating it so it can be on your table?  Say you avoid producers and go “organic” which doesn’t use pesticide or kill the little vermin, the reason for the higher costs, which not everyone can afford, is because the lower crop yield due to the pests.

Tell me, what about mouse infestations in your house?  See I live on the edge of town surrounded by farm fields.  The little bastards have chewed their way into my crawlspace and now into my house.  Would you like to put up memorials for all the mice I’ve had to kill Mr. Kourda?  They bring with them disease and damage to property.  Hire an exterminator I hear you say?

Well I’ve done exactly that, and they poison the little bastards so that people like you can think that they’ve just ran off to live somewhere else.  That way you don’t their handy work, or in this case my handy work.

We have been steadily removing ourselves as being a predator in the pool of animals.  Many, like Mr. Kourda would like to forcefully prevent those who still act predatory to stop.  The thing is, just because we stop being predatory, doesn’t mean other animals won’t view us as prey.

If you would like to voultarily vacate your position at the top of the food chain, that’s your choice.  Me, I’m going to stay right here at the top and keep my family and my self free from disease and vermin while keeping them healthy and well fed.
