    when you suffer disfigurement, people treat you like a freak

    always carry a firearm and don't be treated like a freak!
    Sounds reasonable.

    Tim-
    Yes, it was illegal. there was no mention that it was grandfathered in after the law changed and the state had already identified it as not only illegal, but dangerous.


    And it's illegal to keep wildlife inside your home, so a snake is illegal whether native or exotic. As for spiders, the state has not identified them as their responsibility nor created any laws regarding them has it? If so, it would need to be accountable if negligent.

    So which is it? The animal was dangerous, or it was not? Are you going to now say that the state owes the public an obligation to police common sense?


    There was also a TV show about a Genie that lived in a bottle, you believe that too? Chimps on TV shows may be anything but cute and cuddly, TV shows are not real. You are aware of that aren't you?


    It doesn't matter how a thing is "shown" what matter is how it is. If your rebuttal is that the victim did not believe that an angry 200lb male chimpanzee was dangerous because of what she saw on a TV show, then my advice to someone that stupid would be to stay in the house. Heck, someone that dumb should be afraid of flying monkeys..... since everything on TV is real, right?
    We've covered all this...you can bob and weave all you want....she didnt realize the animal was dangerous. Most Americans dont realize it probably.

    Now....how about a source for your comment? No? lololol

    I never wrote that. I wrote that the state should be held accountable and that from what I read, it was negligent. It should be punished just like the home owner. It might save other people.

    Animals are considered property and the chimp owner never asked the state for help, hence the state was powerless to do anything. The chimp got loose a couple of times but it never went violent before. If the owner had begged them to take the animal away then yes, the state was negligent but she never requested it.

    LOL

    You have no idea how that law works. Many states declare restrictions on or complete bans on exotic animals. I posted 3 quotes from the state that showed they had identified the animal as dangerous...and needed to remove it...and didnt. (Whether the owner liked it or not) The state, under THEIR LAWS, had an obligation to public safety and even said so in the article and in the quotes I posted.

    Try to keep up.

    The victim not realizing that a 200lb male chimpanzee was dangerous is HER PROBLEM, it goes beyond any test for reasonableness. We cannot protect people who are that stupid. Many people don't realize that the ocean is dangerous; hundreds of people drown every year in the ocean surf because they don't realize that NATURE can kill them.

    It was a pet in the home. A home she was invited into. A home where the state knew a dangerous animal resided, even if the victim didnt.

    Where is the quote implying she was aware of any danger that you claimed you had?
