Good Luck Ray!!! Why is there never anything in the paper about the district attorney threatening Ray's witness???? It doesn't look like the truth gets printed. The tax payers should be very angry!!! And what about Todd Fulton and his lies??? What about the goat pen that Todd Fulton constructed into a fighting ring??? This isn't saying much about the Humboldt County court system or the Law inforcement. The rest of the livestock community should be ware of Todd Fulton. He is an uneducated man with a big badge. He doesn't know one thing about livestock....maybe his position should be replaced???

I know that our Courts have better things to do than go after this man.
I heard they sent 76 federal agents out to handle this case. Is this what we pay taxes for? Who is really behind the push to get this man?
We have people that need time in Court. Not this terrible use of tax payers money.

I really like the "who cares" point that the prosecutor makes.Like who cares if Ray did anything illegal,someone did sometime somewhere and that should be good enough for a conviction.
By the way this country is going that might work here in the near future but not yet.Even the good ole boys need some actual correlating evidence to convict someone that can hire adequate defense,instead of having to depend on the DUMPTRUCKS on the PD staff.

Locking up hard working, taxpaying, support yourself type, citizens seems rather un American. Lets go after the deadbeat drags on society. The won't work, welfare as a way of life, spread the wealth advocates. We are tired of their free ride.

Don't forget how much HSUS charge ur city/county to euthanize , vet fees, medicines, handling fees, disposal fees, boarding fees fees, fees and more bogus fees and NOn-Performed service that the Hsus will charge the cities/county/TAXPAYERS MONEY..these are DOLLAR signs for these " TErrorist Extremsit HSUS"", it's HSUS incentive to witch hunts these gamefowls , EUTHANIZE them to make MONEY or charge to TAPAYERS MOney, waht a scam & a very creative ingenious Racketering in stealing TAxpayers money...

Have u all wonder why the SALARY of HSUS( non-profit) president makes more than the current President of America?

Imagine the Cost of taxpayers money to have 76 law enforcements to witch hunt gamefowls..?

These millions of TAXPAYERS money can wisely spent in Funding Teachers/school systems, prosecute oragnize groups that steal taxpayers money in millions, VIolent crimials, Local terrorists such as the hsus & their militias, over crowded prison systems to which human predators are release in our community...in the city i live in there are over 500 sexual predatoprs that are release due to overcrowded jail and legal systems, gang violence , drinking and driving, corrupt public officials that cater/support to terrorist extremist animal groups hsus & their militias etc etc etc etc....
For what Chikens! these abuse in taxpayers money , authority and power!

Having raised chickens,,I think they are about as smart as ants or bugs that splatter on our car windows. Neither should be treated badly. I hear no evidence shows he mistreated or killed anything.. Humboldts District Attorney needs replacing..The office has no leader.
As for fulton,,what a waste. He has been braggin about killing the mexican,,telling other cops,," i have one under my belt".
Since high school,,,has been know as a pussy ,,sorry gals. so he took some classes at college of redwoods, got a badge to get even.
Yes,,fulton the lier. He lies in the field, in the courts,,on complaints..dont matter.

Who is going to proscute him,,,considering no one, from
the sheriffs office, has been proscuted for pergery in humboldt history.
Be careful,,he is the type if fired,,he might go postal.

Ray is a good family man and so was his father. He is innocent. His brother Darel on the other hand is a jackass. Send HIM to jail.
