When PETA employees Andrew B. Cook, 24, of Virginia Beach, and Adria J. Hinkle, 27, of Norfolk snuck around looking for dumpsters to dispose of their newly euthanized cats and dogs, they broke the littering law. When they went from shelter to shelter, picking up strays, telling people they were going to take care of these animals, and instead choked the life out of them by injecting them with a lethal dose of Phenobarbital they committed several felonies of obtaining property by false pretense and animal cruelty.
We have all long suspected of PETA and other such "helpful" groups of hypocrisy. The sad facts are that there is an overwhelming number of abandoned and sick animals in our country that face a life of pain and suffering no matter what we want to do for them. For a huge majority of them the best they can hope for is a quick and peaceful death.
Many people profess to care about life, be it animal or human and yet we often times find hypocrisy when we investigate into the bowels of the groups or agencies. Churches fill on Sundays and the congregation promise to love each other as we love ourselves and yet too often we learn that youth leaders and ministers molest our children and elders and deacons beat their wives and kids. Government agencies tell us that they are here to help and we see that their help, many times, is a false hope or a road to disaster, or the help is more of a fat, no-bid contract given to some political crony.
How is it that so many people fill our jails and prisons when so many say they have love in their hearts? Are children born bad? Are they destined to turn rotten even though they are nurtured and well provided for?
Or are these adults that have long lengthy criminal histories our nation's abandoned and stray? Is there a PETA out there telling us that they will be taken care of and will we instead one day find out that they are ending up in a dumpster? You have to wonder.
You have to wonder why little is being done to fight our war on drugs, you also have to wonder why proper health care and education is so hard to come by for so many of our young and people like the couple in Ohio that place children in cages do not suffer stern justice. You have to wonder like I do when so much is given, so little seem benefit.
Just last week the Nation was told that a (false) terrorist plot was aimed against the city of New York, and later we were told that the rich and powerful were told about this threat first, days earlier. Was Neil Boortz, the nationally syndicated talk show host, right when he said that that is the way it should be? He said, "who better to save than the rich... what can the poor offer us?
I was raised to believe, women and children first, every man for himself, so I would have to disagree. But PETA may have put a face on the phrase, "I am with the Government and I am here to help."
So if it is the Department of Homeland Security, or Social Services, or FEMA or PETA or any other agency knocking comes to your door offering help, you might be better off on your own...with a gun.
