    I would go so far as to suspect that there is even more to the story not reported on.
    There is not more to the story. The charges are for the goldfish only.
    It's just reported that the bird had the eye problem but also be broken leg. It was not for sale.
    But there are no charges for cruelty . Just the goldfish. It's this severity of the charges that is ridiculous.
    The article also shows lesser charges for greater crimes.
    They need better guidelines for the judges apparently.

    The law says you can't sell pets to people under 16 because they can't be expected to take care of a pet properly on their own, so the kids need parental permission. The law applies to all pets, not just the cute fuzzy ones. "It's not like it's a dog!" So what?

    He broke the law. Got the fine. Not sure what the tag is about but I'm not familiar with the laws over there.
    He touched her over her bra and underpants, she says, and guided her hand to touch him over his underwear

    It's usually given in lieu of a custodial sentence or as terms of a remand order (bail). Or to enforce a curfew on minors charged with certain anti-social offences.

    Really? So the article lied? You can prove this, with, I dunno, some sort of evidence?

    Gee, the prgressives fo teh forum have no problem with sort of heavy handed government action, shocking? No, no not at all.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Unless of course the heavy handedness was implemented by the "other" political party - then it's fascist man, just fascist.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Never fear.... we will catch up with then soon.

    Bull****. Saying that there is more to the story than we have is not saying anything other than just that. Or to put it another way:

    Gee, the conservatives on this forum have no problem with jumping to conclusions based on only reading part of an article and incomplete information.

    Pathetic is what I call this.
    So if someone comes by, steals your dog, tortures it for giggles, then kills it, should we write it up as theft or cruelty to animals?

    I mean, its a ****ing dog, right?
