so the officer's actions in shooting kittens were justified and approved .. what's next, if kids are trespassing on a complaintant's property, will it be appropriate to take the children tie ropes around their necks, and hang them in a nearby tree..

..this is absurd ..

This adult man with a gun,a supposed humane officer takes it out and shoots 5 little kittens?

Then the chief tries to say it was justified. I'd be a little scared having a guy like that not only working for the humane society but having a gun. The whole thing is sad and bizarre.

I think the chief needs to question his actions instead of excusing them.

You should be ashamed of yourselves. And the pathetic justification....you should be ashamed of that as well.

So Mayor, all eyes are upon you. The police here obviously cannot be entrusted to police their own therefore it is up to you to fire Accorti. Humane officer,? Please, that is an oxymoron. No reasonable and sensible person does this.

"Trespass & you pay the price"! Are you even kidding me? You are an idiot! If a "trained" retired police officer cannot figure out a way to deal with 5 kittens, he needs to find a new job. I am a 59 year old widow, NOT trained and have been trapping and socializing feral kittens for some time now. Kittens are easy to socialize. I do it in a matter of days. If this "trained" officer cannot figure out to handle kittens without shooting them, he needs to quit and find another job. Seriously!!!

It isn't as simple as just not feeding them. These are stray (homeless) cats, not feral cats. If an animal is desperately hungry and there is little chance it will be able to find food itself, we should help it. This is what makes us human, otherwise we may as well consider ourselves uncivilised savages. Stray cats and dogs do not want to be homeless and it is humans who are responsible for the problem. The pet trade is a lucrative industry where everyone profits except the animal, which is too often seen as nothing more than just another commodity to be discarded when no longer wanted. The solution is to fix the problem where it begins, with the mass breeding and sale of companion animals. Start by banning pet stores from selling them, meanwhile treat the homeless and discarded ones with compassion. It is not their fault~!

Had to be some pretty mouthy kids acting all trailer trash and out of line to provoke a former officer. I hope a lesson was learned.

Come election time vote the police chief out of office.
What part of "humane" does the humane officer and the pole-cat police chief not understand??

The reason he did that was to instil fear and submission to authority. It's the same song being played all over the country, "we can do whatever we feel and you will submit" teach your kids about their constitutional rights and limit any contact with the "authorities" and your kids will fair better. Don't believe me? That's fine but remember, people only do to you what you allow them to do.
