Two Words. MARC RACICOT !! What this man (A very poor version of one I might add) has done as a prosecutor and a Govenor, is a crime in itself. Remember Mt. Power's De-regulation on the 11th Hour?. Now this man has NO Consience!!
We do need volunteer work done at the Homestead. E-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org to find out our current needs. Hope to hear from you, soon!
Caretaker - Moon-Randolph Homestead
It is not unusual for prosecutors to embellish or tell complete lies to judges or jury's to get convictions. The defense attorney has no way to counter or confront the falsehoods. This is why minimum of 15 percent of inmates in Montana prisons are innocent. The public needs to be educated about the judicial system that is not about justice but rather a game of ego's and money. If one were to discover the depths of corruption in this system, one could only assume that the system particularly in Montana, is littered with socio paths only interested in their own gain. The question is, how could a man or woman of good conscience fight so hard to keep an innocent person in prison. The only answer could be is that they have no conscience.
Are they taking volunteers at the homestead? How could I contact them?Thanks
i believe that he should get a new trial. to many un-answered forensic questions in this case. the bloody palm print that belongs to nobody.(???). un-matched pubic hair.
testimony that brings a new suspect(s)
Sissy Atkinson and her friends from jelousy
hell you can even count Kim's own boyfriend as a suspect after arguing about something that day she dies some time during the night.
just my two cents
instead of pissing andd moaning about not being able to work every other friday and having to move motions or other hearings because of this..
well here is a novel idea. work that friday anyways. work pro-bono give your clients and actual reason to trust you, most of them, with their freedom and or lives.
sorry if you feel i am out of line but this is just how I feel
He should run and his first act as a candidate should be thanks but no thanks, Montanan's are against DC based outside groups having influence on Montana's congressional delegation and say, "If I'm going to Washington, I'm going to CHANGE Washington, and PCCC can keep the change."
Way to go John. We need more people who care.
Forget about the Senate! Schweitzer for President!
Run Brian Run!
The Wild horses are an integral part of the ecosystem, especially the grass lands. Scientific research has proven the wild horses are indigenous to this country. Horses help spread native seeds which helps those plants propagate. To the individual who stated slaughter 50,000 horses and send them to africa... horse slaughter is not an altruistic business it's about profit. The largest purveyor of US horse meat is the EU and the only wild equidae eligible to export into the EU is zebra meat. The EU market is closing very soon to US horses of any kind.
The Wild horses are kinder on the water sources than cattle, they will destroy a river bed very quickly. It's amazing that 100,000 acres can only support 100 horses, yet support thousands and thousands of head of cattle.
Poor Eddie whose only crime was to have been born a "food animal". And sadly his only flaw was to be delivered into the hands of someone who would "respect" him in the most twisted, vengeful kind of ways. With "friends" like this - Who needs enemies?
Oh - And that mention of a vegetarian menu not likely in an male dominated household... It's a joke right? As if compassion and the ability to appreciate plant foods was strictly a female attribute. With "logic" like this - No wonder why Eddie met the fate he did. Lori has a tough time thinking beyond the platitudes, myths and stereo-types. How tragic that sentient beings are left in the "care" of such narrow-minded, gluttonous, speciesist, non-thinkers.
May I respectfully say that you sound like someone straight out of this book: http://www.the-ultimate-betrayal.com
How tiresome are these self-indulgent, conscience-driven pieces coming from proponents of (fill in the blank with some manner of exploitation) who search their souls for a moment, examine ramifications beyond themselves in brief passing, then do exactly what benefits them. (In addition to this one, I recall one defending the illegal construction of a visitor center in Wilderness and another about living with the threat of predators after building a house in their habitat).
This writer had an epiphany when she learned about CAFOs--but it was a self-serving epiphany filled with convenient rationalizations. "My desire to understand the life cycle of an animal" - The life cycle? This pig's mom was intentionally bred for profit, and Ms. Bell prematurely ended his life! "...his job on earth was nearly complete." Sadly, these words simply reflect the speciesist attitude that defines the status quo bottom line: treated well or treated badly, animals are nothing more than commodities for human use and consumption. Their "job" is to fulfill our desires.
"It wasn't easy, but I decided to be present at his slaughter." How good of Ms. Bell to make this sacrifice after betraying his affection. "I thanked both him and Elton..." Gag. Perhaps worst of all, "the respect he deserved." Given the choice, what do you suppose Eddie would have rather had--thanks, respect, and a bullet--or to continue living? Why is it so hard for some to understand that sentient animals--all of us--value our lives?
Look, I agree that the pig lived a good life. But "socially responsible meat" exists in the self-delusions of speciesists who won't admit that they're dominated by mere appetite and willing to kill for it. Philosopher Theodor Adorno said, "Auschwitz begins wherever someone looks at a slaughterhouse and thinks: they're only animals." That goes for when the knacker's truck rolls up, too.
As a vegetarian for 26 years (as well as a biologist for 45 years), I would like to thank Lori Bell for writing her story. Allow me to explain.
The last meat I ate was a turkey (Tom) who I had raised from a chick. I, too, thought that if I was going to continue to eat meat I should be absolutely involved in the animal's life and to honor that life, as Lori did with Eddie. I took one step further and did the slaughter as well as the cleaning - after thanking Tom for being our turkey. Problem was I could not do it again and so I put off killing Jerry for Christmas dinner, deciding to wait till Easter. Two weeks before Easter Jerry (now Geraldine) laid an egg and that was all the excuse I needed not to kill her. She lived to be an old bird and gave me delicious eggs every season, naturally. She loved strawberries.
Humans evolved as meat eaters and many other primates eat meat. I do not. I am so far beyond even thinking about it and there is so much nutritious non-meat available that there is no need to eat any critter. At 68 years of age, I am healthy without meat or meds.
So to Lori I say, you are doing it the right way. To others I say, unless you raise it the way Lori did and are involved in its killing it, go veggie. 7 billion humans (and their domestic dogs and cats) eating meat is decimating life on this planet. It is time to acknowledge this.
I am in shock that anyone could kill and then have an appetite to eat a beloved animal much less enjoy it. I lost mine just reading about it. But then I haven't eaten any meat in over 20 years spurred by experiences not unlike this. That meat so hardens our hearts means that no matter how good it tastes, it cannot BE good.
There's nothing "humane" about being raped, having her offspring kidnapped, exploiting her reproductive system (milking for some) and then being brutally murdered in the prime of her life - all for some "caring" consumer? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fKr4HZ7ukSE and http://www.veganvideo.org
Tens of thousands of 4-H and FFA students (and their families) learn this every summer. It's not a bad thing to be more connected to your food chain and the circle of life.
