Parrot Arrested in Colombian Drug Raid (VIDEO)

Lorenzo the parrot has been arrested in Colombia as part of a drug cartel raid. It is believed his role was to call out when the police were coming, so his comrades could run. But this time his actions were just too little, too late. 

Authorities say he may have to spend the rest of his life behind bars. But I say, that’s not a new punishment — he’s already behind bars!

I think the parrot should come to the United States, because I think we might treat him better than the Colombians.

David F., I think the 35% were joking about extraditing the parrot.

Parrots learn from repetition so if he stays around long enough, he will learn a new vocabulary and way of life.

Seriously -- 35% of those who voted in the poll believe the bird should stand trial? Are you completely nuts?
