Hey "customer", if you pay attention to that video closely you will see that one turkey had a knife, one had a 9mm, and one had a baseball bat. They had it coming to them.
Go eat your tofu, hug a tree, and shut the hell up.

The topic is about the treatment of farm turkeys, HELLO! It is wrong to abuse any animal for ANY REASON. As far as that goes it's WRONG TO ABUSE ANY PERSON FOR ANY REASON! Find some morals if that is possible and if you can't, think about the role reversal, what if the one being abused was a family member or friend, or maybe even yourself! I don't think anyone would want to be abused. As the saying goes "been there, done that", it's not pleasant and it doesn't make you "act out on" or abuse others, so don't use that as an excuse!

Anyone who abuses animals or children are just trying to prove they are tough when in reality they are wusses who aren't man enough to take on any resistance. Put them in a cage with a real man and let's see who gets abused. I hope there is a special hot hell for these characters.

PETA is a disgrace to the human civilization. We have worked thousands of years to get to the top of the food chain. Now with all this smack talk against rednecks WTF next time you eat something ANYTHING thing chances are it was grown by a redneck ever think of that?? And boys be good to the turkeys... cause mine over here in dubai wasn't big enough this year lol

PETA shows people what they never wanted to see, and for that I love them. They have made so many vegetarians.

OK...here is the thing....these turkeys are born to be killed and eaten. Do you care if someone kicked your apple before you ate it? I know I don't. They are food for heavens sakes. They were not beloved pets or homeless kittens.They were ground turkey.

PETA cares nothing for people. This kind of drive-by is typical of selfish narrow-worldview people. Remember that you choose to not eat Turkeys because you have "choice". Do you think people in starving countries give a crap about how the food got to their plate? Grow up and also WAKE UP!!!

I am a meat eater. Love it and always will. Thing is I also know right from wrong. Some animals are raised for food--they should be treated in a humane manner while alive and killed in the most humane way. I've not seen the turkey video but I have watched the ones about the cattle industry that shocks the weak/sick cattle who can't stay on the feet on their way to be slaughtered. I think everyone needs to go back to raising their own food cause you know they are feeding us those sick animals because the boss makes sure that those cattle make it through the line if they have to use a machine to lift them up until they can be slaughtered. This is 2009, everyone should be able to express their opinion without people having to result to ignorance and insults.
