I was at the big cockfighting bust the animal writes activists started. Trying to make good pepole criminals and outlaws who arn't bothering anyone they just keep to themselves and want to be left alone. Why do they try to stuff their beliefs down our throaT WHY DON'T THEY JUST MIND THEIR OWN DAMN BUISSNES.

Correct me if I am wrong, but isn't cockfighting illegal? If not then I agree with you. But if it is illegal then it is their business and you don't have much of a complaint.

There is no law on cockfighting in the state of AK, they bent other laws around us like the running of a gambling house, and the crulity to animals, becouse there is no state law against cockfighting.

Justin Arkansas' abbreviation is AR and no cockfighting is not illegal in our state but gambling is and that was their grounds for the warrents. I do believe we will all get off on all these charges but that is only if we keep our mouths shut until trial time!!!!!!!! The most innocent comment can be misconstrude by the ever so nosey law officer watching these websites. Good Luck on your charges as we will need it on ours.

Replying to Justin James Mchone. I understand your frustration on being caught at the cockfight in Arkansas. This is a big problem and most folks just do not care.#1. cockfighters do not bother anyone and do abide by the laws governing behavior. cockfighters are less violent than the average citizen. Children of cockfighters are taught good sportsmanship, not cruelty (as put out by humane society) A few out of state medlesome people stick their noses into every states citizens activities. The humane society and other like groups go from state to state causing trouble. They do that to raise money for themselves. It is a money thing for them. Without a bunch of problems that they say they are doing so much good in solving, they would be without any cause to get money from welmeaning donors. They are frauds from one end to the other. It has nothing to do with kindness to animals. They are the only ones that get quoted by the press and they constantly lie about the facts. The humane society and other like organizations are the problems, not the cockfighters.

stement #2 response to Mr. Justin James Mchone. Another problem that citizens across the country should be offended by is the fact that the "Rico Act" was designed by congress to fight the mafia with. The homeland security law was designed to fight terrism with. Both are used by the Government prosecutors to go after Chicken farmers. That is a mususe of the power given by congress. Some of the overzealous prosecutors are "streching beyound belief" the laws of our land to up their own positions. These trumpted up charges are a disgrace to our Nation. Cockfighters are good chitizens. I knnow thousands of them. I used to be one of them. They are the kindest and most generous people I know. They are loyal Americans and veterans, taxpayers and God fearing people. Yet, with the "stretching of the interpertation os well meaning laws, cockfighters are being portrayed as corrupt, drug dealing, crazy people. Nothing could be farther from the truth. The truth is, animal rights groups(in order to raise money) are the terrorist. The misapplications of laws is blantantly wrong by our judicial system and a miscarraige of justice. Cockfighters are good family people but, yet, they face far more punishment for fighting one rooster than a child molester. This is just plain wrong. The tail is waging the dog here. Everyone should have some rights. Especially the veterans. But, they have far less than they deserve. A good person can be made into a FELON by simpley watching two roosters fight. Another problem I have is with this BS that the law and the animal rights people "SAVE" the roosters by killing them. Does that make any sense to anyone. Personal property is being taken and destroyed immediately by the law with the so called expert help by the animal rights groups. I contend that anyone that approaches a a chicken farm with the police or the police themselves with a preconceived plan to "kill" chickens, are the sick ones and where did out right to a fair trail go. Our birds are being killed before any court give the ok on our personal property being destroyed. I have a BIG prolbem with this act. Game cocks are not contraband. no one has the right to come onto ones property and kill their animals or birds. I simply want my rights and I want others to have theirs. I served my country honorably and am proud to have done so. I resent the law being heavy handed against one segment of our populations simply because a few "nuts" want it done.

You are all mistaken here. Cock fighting is illegal in Arkansas. Gambling on cock fighting is illegal in Arkansas. Simply attending a cock fight in Arkansas is a class A misdemeanor. I realize most of you don't want to admit to being wrong. I offer no offense here. However, by simply wishing something to be acceptable and legal doesn't make it so. If you want cock fighting to be legal in Arkansas or any other state for that matter, pressure your legislature to make it happen.

response to dave from van buren arkansas, here is the law that the humane society says that makes cockfighting illegal in arkansas . pull it up and you will see that that section is reserved and there is no law on cockfighting ;. as far as possesion of gamecocks you will see that that is legal and also spectating and owning cockfighting paraphanelia. let's look up the law before we speak.

Just so you know, the postal code for Arkansas is AR not AK which is the postal code for Alaska.

Even if cockfighting was legal in AR it wouldn't change the fact that gambling is illegal. And seriously, isn't the money(gambling) what its about? Or do people really just like seeing two fouls fight? I think its the money.
