City Founders Encouraged Killing Dogs

30008_437147240271_3251284_nWhy does this not shock me, hmm well maybe because things have only switched around some and not changed. From abusing powers & harming pets & owners, to participating in cruelty to animals by wrestling hogs for entertainment. Not only does that show a violent culture towards innocent living beings but it promotes to continue such violent behavior onto each generation born. Teaching your children that its ok to be cruel to animals for your entertainment teaches them to be violent. Violence that continues into their teen years & adulthood yet so many wonder why the city has out of control youth, high crime, drug use, & domestic violence. Hmm well I think I just answered that.

When will violent people be banned from being in any position of authority. Better yet, when will citizens realize this & stop voting them into office? When will someone of a true positive nature seek office to change it all? Maybe soon?

The marshal also received 50 cents for each hog he found running at large in the city. But those animals were to be impounded, not shot down like … dogs.”
