If this man was not caught in the act of fighting those birds then why spend the tax payers hard earned money on this ridiculous trial and go after some drug lord or rapist. I know going after this man and men like him is alot easier then stopping real crime.

I'm willing to let my taxpaying dollars help punish bad behavior. Michael Vicks case should have taught people like him the hard lessons of animal abuse...
And Cody Baker should get LIFE!!! Different subject.

Only with you Mike, only with you.

You want 'moral equivalence' as you call it?

O.K.- We put this guy in a barb wire cage with another inbred, glue and stitch razor blades all over them, and beat them until they fight and one kills the other - with razor cuts. Oh yeah, if they start to tire, dont forget to throw some firecrackers at 'em!

'Moral' enough for ya Mike?

Killing and eating animals doesnt mean torturing them to a horrible death is o.k., Mike.

But I'm guessing you thought Dick Cheney was an allright guy too..........

What a creep! I wish he was put in a pen with me holding a razor! I don't care what kind of animal it is, that is cruel! Animals feel pain too. Even if he goes to jail, he should never be allowed to own an animal again! I'd like to meet him in a dark alley!

This is so sad...spending the tax payers money on crap like this. I know this man and he is the biggest animal lover I've ever met!!! Those chickens that he owns have wonderful care and eat better than most people. This is all crazy!!! People in this county can't stand to see someone being successful. It is pretty sad!!! Todd Fulton should be ashamed of himself and fired from the dept. Ray is kinder and smarter than most people in this county...Good Luck Ray!

Cockfighting is a real crime! It is cruelty to animals! Virtually every serial killer starts out torturing and killing small animals, then they work their way up to people. Before you start ranting, I'm not suggesting that this man is a serial killer, just that he likes the same kind of stuff.

Just in case you don't know what cock-fighting is... it is NOT two rednecks with their pants pulled down having a battle royale! It IS the torture and murder of innocent animals for the amusement of dirt-bags.

Ray is a dirt-bag. He likes to torture and kill small animals for the sake of gambling and amusement. Being successful doesn't exempt you from obeying the law, just ask Michael Vick.

I'm really having a hard time finding any logic in your argument. If I were to keep my children well fed and send them to the best schools before I slit their throats, does that mean I'm still a good father?
