Give these bas##rds equal treatment. Of course that is not going to happen, but it might scare them if they were threatened with the same abuse they gave to innocent animals.

As an Iowan (currently) I am outraged. And these idiots ought to be prosecuted. Friedrich, however, is an idiot. Abuse is not the Norm. PETA thinks so because they think the whole process of feeding the world is abusive.

Sarah Palin's 15 minutes of fame are winding down. The public has lost interest as nearly everything we are finding out about Palin is BAD.

LIED about Bridge to Nowhere LIED about earmarks LIED about Troopergate LIED about a broken teleprompter at the convention

Makes RAPE victims pay for their own rape kits, but she has no problem letting the city of Wasila buy her a $42k SUV!!!

People are starting to say "Thanks, but no thanks" to Sarah Palin, and until John McCain puts someone on the ticket as VP that I believe can run the country (aka Romney), Obama's got my vote.

This is DISGUSTING!!!!!!! I'm not a vegetarian, but if I had to kill my own meat, I could be. The only thing I can kill and gut for consumption is fish.

People that can so callously mistreat ANY animal have some serious mental issues. These are the Jeffrey Dahmers of the world and they need the same treatment inflicted upon them. This type of scum needs to be wiped off the face of the planet.

This is what happenes when we go to mass agriculture and not the local farmers. Disgusting. Show the animal some respect before its harvested.

STOP ABUSING THESE PIGS!!!

Be nice to them before you lop their heads off, slit their bellies, yank out their guts, cut out all the "good" parts, chop off their feet and pickel them and put them in jars and use every other part imaginable.

C'MON, DON'T ABUSE THEM.(until it's time to eat them, of course).

Show them some respect... LOL. You're going to eventuall lop their heads off, slit them open and drain all of their blood before you chop them up. But you want to show them respect BEFORE you do all of that. Pretty hypocritical.

"Oh, come here Mr. Pig. Would you like a massage? Yes, good piggy, nice piggy. Oh, you're so cute...

WHAM!!!!

some respect. Either accept that you're going to eat their flesh and all that comes with it or don't eat meat at all.

Well, this is one time that a religious person got it right. Yes, animals were put on this planet by nature/evolution to be food for other animals.... however that does NOT give humans the right to abuse them like these pig farm workers did!
I hope they arrest these pig farm workers, ban them from EVER working on a farm again, and put them in prison for a long time, because if they are doing this to 'poor dumb animals' who did nothing to deserve this abuse... what might they be doing to other HUMANS?
