".... lawmakers, the legislative process & the justice system are controlled by the most powerful corporate actors, which abuse & exploit democratic & legal processes for their own interests. That includes abusing the power of the criminal law to punish those who criticize these industries, report on them & dissent from their practices."

And if the laws don't fit, just change them

GREED & CORRUPTION in the legal system... so who should be facing the felony charges????

These animals are just considered things, rather than living beings. Under this law, it's OK to abuse aninials, but not to save them. This is sickening.

The hypocrisy is if dogs and cats were treated the way other animals are treated there'd be a huge outcry. It's why we have so many laws protecting them but not other animals. But in the simple minds of many humans one animal deserves care and the other torture. It's this attitude that allows many humans to accept racism and bigotry. One group deserves compassion but the other not so much. These kinds of people are unable to extend compassion beyond a very limited circle.

Once while in a grocery line I listened to several people in front of me talking with the clerks about a newspaper headline about 2 puppies that had been dognapped (and returned safely). When one lady said it's horrible how some people abuse animals I said if you really want to see animal abuse check out what's happening back in the meat department. They all shut up and continued loading their dead animal products into their grocery bags and left.

Thank you, Judy, for this posting.....I hate the meat producers, Smithfield, Tyson, etc. so much. They do almost as much environmental damage as mining and oil discovery, extraction, transportation ....etc.

And they treat animals viciously and they tie up the court systems just like the other giant of nastiness and greed...Big Pharma, Big Oil, Big Meat, Big Corn.....enemies of all life on earth.

Whistle blowers are a necessity to our physical and mental health. Bully tactics.
