Legacy of Contridiction

We can talk all day about hypocricy but i rather show you. By the way it IS illegal for a civilian to attend a dog fight as John Goodwin stated in testimony while he was being bounced from a case as an expert. "I might mention being a spectator at a dog fight is a crime" when asked had he actualy ever been to a dog fight.

"Our investigators risk their lives by going undercover at dogfights. Our staff trains thousands of law enforcement officials every year on the basics of the illegal animal fighting industry. We work with law enforcement in investigating and building cases. We publish manuals and the key resources on the subject. And we produce videos, public service announcements, in-depth stories and other quality materials to educate the public and law enforcement authorities about this despicable underworld. There's usually no glory or limelight in the daily grind, just the satisfaction of knowing that we are helping to bring participants in this cruelty to justice. The emotional cost for our staff who work daily on these issues is incalculable." -Wayne Pacelle

They take pride in stating how much law enforcement needs them.

"First and foremost, the U.S.D.A. should not be relying on a private animal welfare charity to do its job for them,” said Paul Shapiro, who oversees issues involving farm-animal abuse for the Humane Society. He said there was little incentive to go to the Department of Agriculture anyway because the agency often ignores abuse allegations."

Then states the Government should do thier own work.

"How to Spot Signs of Dogfighting in Your Community
An inordinate number of pit bulls being kept in one location, especially multiple dogs who are chained and seem unsocialized.
Dogs with scars on their faces, front legs and stifle area (hind end and thighs).
Dogfighting training equipment such as
treadmills used to build dogs' endurance
"break sticks" used to pry apart the jaws of dogs locked in battle
tires or "springpoles" (usually a large spring with rope attached to either end) hanging from tree limbs
Unusual foot traffic coming and going from a location at odd hours"

Wow this would also describe

They donate confiscated dogs to Lawdogs. So if they are donating true dog fighting dogs then these would have to be considered

1. They may have scars
2. Diane Jessup shows the use of chains on her website. (director)
3. Diane Jessup shows treadmills and flirt poles on her website (director)
4. Can't imagine to the untrained eye how unsocialized an "attack" police dog would seem.
5. How many different people come in and out a week looking for detections dogs.

So what we have here is the HSUS saying all this is illegal, but what we do is none of your concern. Not to mention this would include anyone who rescues any breed of dog and anyone who enjoys hunting with their dogs. Convenient.

"The HSUS opposes legislation aimed at eradicating or strictly regulating dogs based solely on their breed for a number of reasons. Breed Specific Legislation (BSL) is a common first approach that many communities take. Thankfully, once research is conducted most community leaders correctly realize that BSL won't solve the problems they face with dangerous dogs."

"1. Pit bulls – There is no doubt that pit bulls are in bad shape in America right now. They are likely the most popular dog in the country, but unfortunately, they are also the dogs of choice for drug dealers, gang members, and anyone else who is looking for a dog to be a status symbol. Legislation banning pit bulls or requiring strict regulation will not solve the problems created by dangerous dogs. However, because pit bulls currently flood animal shelters in Louisville and across the country, legislation requiring their mandatory sterilization could be a benefit to the breed and to all dogs in the community. Additionally, the mandatory sterilization of pit bulls would negatively impact those individuals who use pit bulls for fighting, guarding locations used for illegal activities, and the backyard breeders who so recklessly add to the dog overpopulation. Requiring the sterilization of pit bulls does not have the same problems as traditional breed-specific legislation. This does not punish responsible pet owners, as truly responsible owners already have their animals sterilized."-Letter from the HSUS to City of Louisville Kentucky.

"Ms. Desiree Bender stated that while she is not a resident of the Community, she would like to see the City adopt legislation that would require the spaying and neutering of Pit Bulls. She stated that most fatality cases have involved a dog on a chain or an unaltered Pit Bull beside an in heat female Pit Bull. She offered support data to explain her argument. " - minutes from Jacksonville town meeting on July 7 2005.

I could go all day. And when i have time i will.
