Why even bother to make this raid if the roosters were given back to the owners. The police did this after citing the people for animal cruelty?? Unbelievable. This is such a cruel treatment of the roosters by redneck, backward people. Something for KY to be really ashamed of. This will further damage our image to the rest of the country. Of course people like this are too backward to care. Make a nickel where you can.

lol You are right...these morons who want to continue to fight roosters try to convince normal people that it is all about culture. lol George Washington did it is one of their defenses to something indefensible. But, you are right- the backward hillbillys probably don't even own a da*m computer and will never see this post.

You guys didn't read it right. They weren't fighting roosters, they were swordfighting with their peckers. It was a homosexual get together. hahahaha

I don't see many posts on this subject. Do London residents not care that this archaic activity is going on???

Yeah, the Feds are keeping everything under wraps though. I hear they are trying to tie Michael Vick to recent chickenfights.

I am originally from London. It is sad that this is still going on. The problem starts with the parents, they are stuck in a time warp of the 50's. This is when it wasn't broadcasted nationally that this isn't a sport and inhumane, again most learn this from family. Some, not all, believe it is ok to do these stupid things because of their parents inability to realize how wrong they really are. In defense, everyone chooses their own destiny, others live with their parents until their parents die. Hopefully at least one person at that raid will come to a realization that they are commiting an inhuman act and tell others as well. Again, HOPEFULLY.

Rooster fights and dog fights are both inhumane and very cruel. It is hard to believe that people get a thrill from watching these activities. Smart people would have more sense.

Since you live in Kentucky then you must be redneck also. If you are ashamed then move to another state.

You should have been one of the roosters they confiscated because you are on a roosters intellectual level.

Interesting that you are the only one defending this activity and trying to defend your mentality. You are making it very clear just how smart you are.

You need to go back and read this all again! I haven't been defending rooster fighting anywhere in any of my posts! I just get upset when people like that say such things. And for your information I am a very intellegent person and it matters not what you think of me!

It does not surprise me that something as idiotic as cock fighting still happens in London. It also does not surprise me that the cops gave back the roosters. It would not surprise me if police in London were aware of it to begin with. It is a horrible thing to be running this kind of operation anywhere, animals, dogs, fowls, or any living entity raised to fight for a persons amusement is wrong. It disturbing, but its London. I realized growing up that many things in London are archaic and corrupt. Two main issues with London are its police department and the educational system...archiac and corrupt. What can any one expect from a place that the cops are involved in most of the illegal activity and the education system is outdated and almost non existent.

No, I have never killed an animal. Fowl or animal, you are watching living things tortured. I would never consider anyone involved in this type of activity good guys. Far from it. There seems to be plenty of disgusting, corrupt activity going on in London. Does anyone know what has happened to the people involved with the chicken fighting? It is too small a town for the police to not know about this and when it is occurring. To give the chickens back to these horrible people was a disgrace.

Whats funny is that cj pit has been there for as long as i remember, then all of sudden there is a police raid. Why the delay, why not five years ago. I know they couldnt have been in the dark for that long on what was going on there. Someones pockets must have gotten alittle bit deeper. If someone knows something i dont please feel me in....

From the newspaper:

"FRANKFORT --Kentucky State Police raided an alleged cockfighting operation in Laurel County on Friday and cited 10 people on misdemeanor animal cruelty charges.

Property owners Clyde Cecil Johnson, 73, and Shirley Doris Johnson, 70, were cited for misdemeanor animal cruelty and not having a permit for operating a place of entertainment, according to a police press release. Eight others were cited for misdemeanor animal cruelty."
