If it is alright for a man to kill a chicken to eat, then shouldn't it also be alright for a chicken to kill a chicken? These chickens have it a whole lot better than the ones we get at the store!
Why don't you google "cockfighting" and take a look at some of the pictures. If your interested I can get you some real good gory pics... then you can tell me that they have it a whole lot better than the ones we get at the store. Cockfighting is just as sick as dogfighting and most of the time even more brutal. They actually tie blades to their feet so that they can slash each other.

It's not the life of the chicken. It is that fighting is prolonged suffering. It amounts to torture, unlike quickly killing them for food.

No uproar, no protests....NOTHING! It must be their "culture" to fight chickens. LOL My, my, my...how consistent we are about animal rights.(and no, I don't condone cockfighting and I am not a Vick supporter) It does go to show that the dogfighting case obviously didn't deter any other type of animal cruelty.
Exactly!!! Right as usual :)

Thats why we have different agencies that handle different crimes. As long as you have the Poindexters over here, the Feds will have to work stateside as well. Im sure the good ole Osama hunt is still on, buddy.

I've been following this story from the first time I saw it in the Page Co newspaper. I'd love to be on the jury. There would be no quick verdict. Seems like a lot of folks want to hang this guy. Believe me, we'd take each count seperately, look at all the evidence and his defense or denial, discuss it, and then take a vote. From what I've read, some people involved in this case had charges droped for telling the feds what they wanted to hear. You know, if I was facing time in prison, and changing my story to what the feds wanted to hear, would get me off, don't think I wouldn't give it some serious thought. All I say is give this guy a fair trial, and don't just go along with the croud. You will have to live with your vote.
