"callous course instructor cheerfully whistling while dismembering goats and Coast Guard members joking about writing a song about mutilating the animals." This instructor sound like a psychopath...

Ugh to this whole episode!

Petition signed.

Ty, Dusty.

Thanks Dusty, signed of course.
As a member of PCRM I would also suggest to anyone here to please check out their website (and take some action). They are also strongly committed to end animal use in medical training throughout the US.
PCRM-Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine
For those of you unaware of PCRM please note that Elizabeth Kucinich, wife of brave congressman Dennis Kucinich, has a leading role there as Director of Public and Government Affairs. She has been educating Congress and working to pass the BEST Practices Act, a bill to replace animal use.

the blood of all our fellow beings, is crying out for justice
you can tell a lot about a person or society by the way it treats the beings it doesn't think it has to treat well. silence is acceptance
life has value beyond measure
Peace and Love

signed. This is the perfect example of psychopathic personality disordered people running the military, politics. We need to remember that we are human beings, not ones who support such atrocities to occur on our watch. We are complicit unless we stop them.

Of Beasts they scorn as soulless,
in forest, field, and den,
the CRY goes up to WITNESS,,
the soullessness of men
They're all criminals and belong in jail or HELL

Signed, this is so sad I just couldn't watch it all, seeing this kind of cruelty makes me wish the animals could turn around and do the same to the torturers. No wonder we have people who abuse animals we train them to do it.

Noted, signed and DISGUSTED.. I think they do it to desensitize the soldiers so it wont be so 'bad' to kill and maim a human..WHY else do it when you dont have too? Not to mention that many are just SICK and enjoy torturing..I wouldnt watch the video as Im already angry about this, and it will make me vomit again..
Thanks Dusty!
