LAWRENCE COUNTY, AL (WAFF)-
A Lawrence County jury acquitted five men charged with cockfighting.

31 arrests made after cockfighting ring bust
The verdict came down Wednesday following two days of testimony.

The five were arrested in August of 2011 after undercover officers went to the fights and documented what they saw.

The fights reportedly happened at a home in the Speake community.

Defense attorneys argued that cockfighting is a sport, saying that George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and Abe Lincoln all were known to be involved in it.

They also tried arguing that since a chicken doesn't have four legs and fur, it's not an animal - so animal abuse charges wouldn't make sense.

The jury seemed to hinge on whether or not the fights were on private or public property.

"In short, if you fight cocks in a public place, then that's a violation of the law. The flip side of that is, theoretically, well, you can fight at a private place," said Lawrence County District Attorney, Errek Jett.

The judge told jurors to ignore the argument that chickens weren't animals.

It Denies Fundamental constitutional liberties, which harms adults & children without Due process & for no good reason- No compelling gov't interest is advance through anti-cockfighting laws..
IT is wrong to deny people fundamental constitutional liberties, like equal protection under the law, simply because of who they are.
NO LAW is allowed to violate the US constitution, & our nation's founders established the court to protect every American's constitutional rights against UNFAIR laws.
EQUAL JUSTICE!
IT violates constitutional rights by creationg separate classes of people with different laws for each one- anti-cockfighting laws does IRREPARABLE harm to USA gamefowl sport practitioners, STIGMA< DESCRIMINATION & Economic HARM!
IT's Immoral & Unconstitutional to IMPOSE once personal Moral Chicken values to others, anti-cockfighting laws SPONSORED by a private nontaxpaying Economic Terrorist Vegan syndicates, pls read pages 8-9 of US Homeland Security report on Terrorism, http://www.hsussucks.com/ ,

4humanrights--"1. Legalizing Cockfighting is the only way to save the Gamecock from EXTINCTION. THE ONLY WAY"

Lie. There are plenty of ways to save a species from extinction that do not require they fight to the death.

"2. It promotes brother hood, Rich Poor, Black White, Christian non Christian, Man Woman, Young old, American non-American."

That's idiocy. There are literally thousands of ways to do this that don't involve torture of animals.

"3. Legalized Cockfighting would bring in millions in taxes, permits, and licenses, the money could go to social programs to take care of the elderly, children, disabled, Etc."

So would legalizing the hunting of human beings, legalizing prostitution, strip shows at the Arts Festival, there's all kinds of ways to "bring in tax money" that are stupid and destructive.

"4. Legalizing Cockfighting would produce thousands more jobs like family run feed stores, hotel, gas stations, restaurants, farmers, Etc."

That's just out and out untrue. Even if we do go back to the stone ages and legalize this brutality nowhere CLOSE to the number of people will be involved to "produce thousands of jobs."

"5. Legalized Cockfighting would put Human life and livelihoods above that of a chicken"

Lie. It does not lift human life to devalue the life of an animal.

"6. Legalizing Cockfighting would free up the police force, the public defenders offices, and the judicial system, all of these resources could be better utilized pursuing and prosecuting violent offenders."

These are violent offenders. Want to free up law enforcement? Stop breaking the law.

"7. Legalizing Cockfighting would better serve the whole poultry industry, It would let the vast number of Cockers work with the USDA, State Agriculture departments, medical and poultry science departments to find better ways of disease control, In genetics research and the overall health in all poultry."

That's absolute lunacy. If you really think this is about what's best for chickens...let's just say you're fooling nobody with this.

"8. It can’t be prevented: There’s a reason it’s called “one of the world’s oldest sports”. It’s always been around, it always will be. We might as well use it."

Murder's always been around. That's a lame excuse. It isn't a sport, and claiming "it always will be around" is false. It's disappearing. Thank God.

"9. The laws are arbitrary and hypocritical: It’s okay to fish, hunt, trap, falconry, and to kill unborn babies."

As for the other issues, there MIGHT be some small legitimacy except that fishing, hunting, etc aren't nearly as cruel to the animal prior to death.

As for your BS about "unborn babies," there is no such thing. An embryo is not a baby. Trying to tie your right to torture animals to denying reproductive choice rights to women is a ridiculous straw man argument.

"10. They are private property Period!"

So are horses. And if you torture a horse, you belong in jail. Same with any other animal.

HISTORY LESSON ON ANIMAL RIGHTS AND TYRANNY
Those who do not remember the past are condemned to repeat it.
Hitler's Nazi Germany was marked by a preoccupation with "animal rights." Hitler's Third Reich passed numerous animal protection laws, such as declaring that shoeing a horse was cruel, and declared an end to dissection. This reduced Man’s status to that of animals, and justified treating men as animals. Before the war was ended, the Nazis stepped up experiments on the best way to castrate a Jew without anesthesia, and turned countless men, women and children into lampshades and soap. These Nazi actions were justifiable by their belief that it was possible to "...increase the moral standing of animals and decrease the moral standing of people, thus integrating human characteristics to animals... elevating animal life to the level of cult worship...which would lead to the spiritual and ideological changes necessary... for a new national identity."
The real political objective of “animal rights” is to eliminate "unalienable rights," and to make way for all these other supposed rights and pervert our Bill of Rights to the point where only the perverted are protected. A favored socialist strategy is to separate the population from common sense and its own laws by bringing about chaos, clouding real issues, then bring about “change” through gradual “legislation from within.” Ruling by planned crisis is the favored method, as this short-circuits the brain’s ability to think and reason clearly about true issues. This planned chaos (such as “animal cruelty,”“puppy mills” and “cock fighting”) is designed to rob the nation of its creativity and life force, degrade human existence, make everything seem uncontrollable and bad, which then allows the introduction of a tyrannical form of government.
The Gestapo was first used by Goring to do away with political opponents. A "temporary" state of emergency was declared after the Reichstag fire, but was never rescinded. This allowed the Gestapo to enforce conformity at every level of society. Block wardens monitored their neighbors, and children were recruited to inform on their teachers and parents. The Gestapo was authorized to hold people in "protective custody" which was really arbitrary arrest and imprisonment. At first, only political prisoners were taken under the guise of "preventive protective custody" and placed in SS-controlled concentration camps; later, anyone was hunted down and taken who was deemed to not fit in with SS and Gestapo vision of a perfect Aryan society.("SS" came from Schutzstaffel which means "elite guard").
Today we see this same conduct and set of circumstances appearing in some of our civic institutions. The only way for one man to achieve dominion and control over another is through the darkness of IGNORANCE. Let’s get educated about our own laws, so that tyranny cannot gain a foothold in America, and so that we can once again have “happiness and good government flowing forth” as paraphrased by all our early education laws. We do have some beautiful laws. Let’s learn them, and insist that our civic institutions obey them for the good of our nation. God Bless America.

Now that argument makes perfect sense in Okieland.
Okies are so dumb they'd easily believe this defense.
It would still be OK to kill Muslim chickens though.
They have no souls, unlike the true Christian ones.

My New Call to Action has been posted on my Website ( www.franklosey.com ).

Slowly but surely, my past Calls to Action have helped to "persuade" 27 Members of Congress to send Congressional Inquiries either to the IRS, or to the Treasury's Inspector General, or to Justice Department Attorneys. Their inquiries have expressed the concerns of their constituents that the IRS has failed to enforce the U.S.Tax Code against the HSUS because the HSUS has ignored the prohibitions placed on public charities not to engage in excessive lobbying and not to engage in prohibited campaign activities such as opposing or endorsing candidates for election. While tax-exempt organizations are permitted to engage in a limited amount of lobbying, there is a threshold that has been far, far exceeded by the HSUS.

Several of those 27 Members of Congress are now concerned about the lack of "timeliness" on the part of the IRS because the IRS told them as far back as three years ago that its "ongoing examination program" of the activities of all tax-exempt, public charities would consider such things as the 3,000+ pages of documents that I have submitted to the IRS -- these documents incriminate the HSUS! That is why a few Members of Congress are beginning to be receptive to the idea that a Congressional Oversight Hearing should occur. And that is why I believe that the timing is right for a major push that would generate Tens of Thousands of E-Mails from all over the U.S. to the 535 Members of Congress that would urge them to support a Congressional Oversight Hearing.

I would appreciate if you would consider helping to get the word out in the effort to cumulatively generate a Tsunami-Like Wave of E-Mails to 535 Members of Congress.

Have a Great Weekend!

Keep up the good work. Some kooks make
a difference. Thankfully you've gotten
great result so far. In three more decades
you'll be noticed. Meanwhile pay no attention
