LNP: PATHETIC CLICKBAIT!

duct-taped
    
     Seriously, LNP? Days and days after this has been all over the internet – worldwide – you are going to do an “article” on it? That is pathetic and all you want are the outraged clicks and comments. I’m not going to link to it because if you haven’t read about this dog you must live under a rock!
     And it is one of the most ridiculous things I have ever read! I think muzzles in general are cruel but you can buy them anywhere:
muzzle    
     So, how are these different than duct tape? LNP “investigative reporter” Susan Baldrige wrote a column saying she uses a shock collar on her dog! Where is the outrage? Why haven’t people called the police on her? What an absolute waste of people’s time and effort!
     But this is mindful of what PA House Bill #1538 is trying to offer to the police and it is astonishing and one of the most deeply disturbing pieces of legislation I have ever encountered. There will be much more on this in the days to come.
     Finally, from an item I mentioned yesterday, the trial of Kenneth White has been postponed because apparently his lawyer up and quit this morning. Hmmm. Click here for PennLive’s, “Trial delayed for man shot by police after fleeing DUI stop at 5 times more than limit.”

*    $10,000 cash bail!  If he were a minority in Lancaster city his bail would be $250,000 cash at a minimum.

TRANSPARENCY!

     Today’s editorial in LNP, “Bill in state Legislature that hinders transparency is not the way to protect police,” (click here).

     House Bill #1538 is so scary even LNP is against it. This is unbelievable!

    So, even the LNP is opposed to this anti transparency bill?

    Have they filed a FOIA to get the name of the cop who was involved in the self defense killing of Gomez while trying to serve a warrant? Have they filed an FOIA to get the name of the police officer who was shot by Gomez? Have they ever bypassed the DA to get information that the public deserves despite the DA’s protestations?

    Until then, it’s all just lip service. They are full of crap and bluster… probably just fulfilling their newspaper “ethics” for face value. In the meantime telling the DA, don’t worry we aren’t going to ever bother you if you say no.

      Not to dwell on this – but if I were her I would fight the charge. Just get a lawyer to show pictures of dogs in muzzles.

      CARY, NC – A woman who posted a picture of her chocolate lab-mix with its mouth taped shut on her social media page, which was labeled with a South Daytona, Florida location has now been charged in Cary where she was staying with the dog. Katharine F. Lemansky, 45, whose Facebook page lists her name as Katie Brown, is charged with one count of Class 1 Misdemeanor Cruelty to Animals after admitting that the incident took place in Cary. The charge carries a fine and possibly up to 150 days in jail. Lemansky must appear in Wake County court December 14, 2015. No additional charges are pending.

      “Taping the dog’s muzzle shut was a terrible decision on Ms. Lemansky’s part, and charging her with animal cruelty under North Carolina law was the right thing to do,” said Cary Police Captain Randall Rhyne. “At the same time, it’s important to also note that our animal control officers who physically examined both Brown and her littermate found the dogs to be very well cared for, which is why we did not and could not remove them from the owner. The dogs are current on their shots, spayed, and microchipped. They are clean and well-nourished and appear to be comfortable in their surroundings. And there were no signs of injury to Brown’s muzzle, not even detectable hair loss.”

    Shock collars are probably the most disgusting things ever invented, taping a dogs mouth is also disgusting but a lot less so.

    Wow this kid Looks like’s he been using Crack and MDJ couldn’t tell this by looking at him and his charges?
    The state of the court system in setting Bail is so Un-Realistic to a lot of judges who have no idea on the matters before them sometimes and he might have known the kid since he might have arrested him in the Past as an officer of Ephrata boro.
