I keep saying that North Carolina is the Massachusetts of Dixie

Here's proof:
Wayne County animal control officers confiscated 27 dogs and cats from a temporary emergency shelter Monday that was being run by volunteers with Crazys Claws N Paws rescue. 
Frank Sauls, animal services manager for Wayne County, said there is an ongoing investigation with animal control services and could not say what the charge would be. 
“If we didn’t feel like anything was being done wrong, we would not have taken (the animals),” he said. “But that is for the courts to decide.”

Tammie Hedges, who runs Crazys Claws N Paws, signed the dogs over to animal control. 
All of them were taken to the Wayne County Animal Adoption and Education Center.
“We were trying to help abandoned animals,” Hedges said. “We knew North Carolina didn’t have any regulations or laws regarding shelters for animals. 
“So a group of us got together to do something to help those animals is why we opened our building to them so they’d have a safe dry place to go until their owners returned to get them.
So where does Massachusetts come in?  Remember Martha Coakley, the former Attorney General?
Tekmage has great post about Massachusett's idiot Attorney General, Martha Coakley. For those who haven't heard, here's the Cliff Notes version:
  1. Pervert molests 4 year old in public bathroom.
  2. Kid's (ex-Marine) dad catches him, and goes all Semper Fi on perv's ass.
  3. Police show up, take one look at situation, and arrest the dad.
When Atty Gen Coakley was asked WTF was up with this, her reply was "We don't encourage self help." Well now.
Well now, indeed.  Hurricane forcing evacuations?  Pets left behind?  Think that you might want to do something to keep them from drowning?  Frank Sauls, animal services manager for Wayne County does not encourage Self-Help.

Frank Sauls, animal services manager for Wayne County is a statist prick.  The same reasoning applies to him as what I pointed out applying to Martha Coakley:
At first blush, it seems that the $64,000 question is "Why would the authorities not want the public's help?" Suppose that the Mass.Gov really wanted to reduce child abuse. They'd give the dad a medal, and haul Mr. Feely off to durance vile. Then everyone would retire to the local saloon: Whiskey for my men and beer for my horses.

That's sure not happening. So the real $64,000 question is "Why not?" The answer is ugly.

It's not ugly because the idiot police let the molester go free, although that's pretty ugly. While the molester is a threat to the community, he is not a threat to the authorities.

What is a threat to the authorities? Mr. Marine Dad, who wasn't a good victim, who didn't go running to the Nanny State for help, who handled things.
And so we see that North Carolina is the Massachusetts of Dixie.  Q. E. D.

"Do unto others, then split" is the lesson for Marine Dad.
If you did your thing, and stood around waiting for a gold star from the authorities, you already screwed that pooch.
Turn Perv's head into an ashtray, and #Walkaway.
It's the suburban/urban version of the Three Ss: Shoot-shovel-shut up.
Once you've used perv's head as a can opener for a porcelain sink, your work is finished.
Wash your hands, literally and figuratively, and mosey along.

Cat lady's problem: someone noticed. And/or squealed.
She probably got some nosy in-her-business (literally) neighbor p.o'ed, and landed on the skyline, and official radar screens.

Sheriff Andy is dead, boys and girls, so even is Deputy Fife.
There is no situation they show up to that the authorities cannot make worse, and they default to it, because it's how they justify their budget next year.

Total number of government workers who decided they were superfluous: zero, going back only as far as Hammurabi.

If your county has already staked a claim to something, dismantle that first, or prepare to be boarded when they find you've butted into their domain.

Look what's happened when they became involved in charity, adoption, etc.

There is no honor among thieves, and no criminal enterprise appreciates competition for turf.

Government is no exception.

Until you get rid of the agencies exiting 24/7/365, you can't step in and "help" just because they're incompetent at all times, and overwhelmed sometimes.
because that's how they're going to justify a bigger budget next year.

Y'all should have strangled that baby in the crib thirty years ago.
Now that it's the size of Baby Huey playing middle linebacker, it's a bit late to for that realization to dawn.

Sigh.The most wonderful dog my sister ever had was the only survivor from a shelter next to the Tar River. The rest drowned during a hurricane in the 90s. I believe it was Floyd.

I would like to go to MA because the houses that my English ancestors built in the early 1600s are still there. But I won't. Because MA is one of the stupidest states on God's green earth.

And the only hope I have for reuniting my family is Raleigh, because technology. And it's south and I would only move south. But NC is getting stupider and stupider. Because of Raleigh.

And right now I'm arguments both with people who think that clerical sex abuse invalidates the Catholic Church AND with Catholics who think that no clerical abuse has ever happened and it's all an anti-Catholic conspiracy.

Why are there so many stupid people in the world?

As you know, no good deed goes unpunished.

Because of sanitation, vaccination, and regulation.

Stupidity, sadly, is no longer fatal in the way it once was.

And stupidity BREEDS..
