When that happens, all the PETA people crawl out of the woodwork, and a great cry goes up against the rodeo. Do they not understand that horses love to run? That the bulls usually kick the cowboys butts? That these animals are cared for and loved?
It's like a side note that a rider, i.e. a human/person was injured. The animals are more important than the humans.
"I'm not a fan. I never have been," said Anderson, who grew up in British Columbia.
Already, two horses have died from heart attacks at the Stampede, one has been euthanized after a shoulder injury and a fourth broke its back from bucking too hard. A rider was also seriously injured.
In other news, a mom kills her daughter and walks away. Apparently, horses are more important than daughters.
So, an immigrant:
Putting a Calgary mom who strangled her promiscuous 14-year-old daughter in jail would smack of vengeance, a judge said Thursday, in handing her probation instead.
Justice Sal LoVecchio placed Aset Magomadova on probation for three years ruling the time behind bars sought by the prosecution wasn’t needed.
“The Crown says due to the nature of the act, namely a ligature strangulation and the necessity to address deterrence and denunciation a period of incarceration is necessary to preserve respect for the law,” LoVecchio noted.
“I do not agree,” the Court of Queen’s Bench judge said.
“Deterrence and denunciation may also be addressed without a period of incarceration,” LoVecchio said, in agreeing with defence lawyer Alain Hepner prison wasn’t warranted.
Magomadova sat in the prisoner’s box wiping away tears as a Chechen interpreter translated LoVecchio’s words.Who can't even speak English, kills her daughter and gets three years probation. This opens the door for every other honour killing. This Liberal judge should be called before a human rights tribunal (isn't that their purpose) to explain how a murder is okay because the person had a hard life in some other country. I am totally disgusted with this ruling. She should be deported back to where ever she came from, she does not deserve to be considered a Canadian.
Liberal judges, ensuring a Conservative majority!
