A WHALE'S LIFE & AGONIZING SUFFERING = $20 PER THUG
They promised tough prosecution, but in the end the Makah Nation
couldn't put together a jury to try five whalers who were charged with
illegally killing a gray whale off Neah Bay last fall.
Tribal Judge Stanley Myers on Wednesday instead granted the men
one-year deferred prosecution and promised to dismiss the charges if
they committed no offenses during that time. The whalers also were
each ordered to pay a $20 fine.
The deferral came after the judge summoned more than 200 people from
the remote village of Neah Bay on the Olympic Peninsula to serve as
potential jurors. But the judge gave up on empaneling a jury because
just about everyone was either related or said they had strong
feelings about the case, according to one of the whalers, Wayne
Animal-rights activists were dismayed at the tribal judge's ruling Wednesday.
"There should have been a better show of discipline here," said Naomi
Rose, lead scientist with the Humane Society of the United States in
The concept of 'animal rights' values the simple premise that ALL living creatures have a "right" to be allowed to live their lives without victimization--free from brutality. It is a right that EVERY being strives for.
"Humanely" slaughtered 'meat', is an obscene lie invented and perpetuated by people who are too lazy, selfish and cruel to change their dietary habits. Forcibly denying a creature its right to life, love and companionship can NEVER be humane.
