When faced with a difficult decision regarding something that' s illegal governments often take the easy way out by making the illegal legal.

Quelle tristesse de voir qu'un gouvernement ne prend pas les responsabilités qui lui reviennent avec les conséquences que nous connaissons.

I wish that some body of people would actually do something positive which would save animals! By and large the world doesn't give a damn and that means that our grandchildren will not know what a wild animal is. Tragic does not begin to cover it.
