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: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.
When Atty Gen Coakley was asked WTF was up with this, her reply was "We don't encourage self help." Well now.
- Pervert molests 4 year old in public bathroom.
- Kid's (ex-Marine) dad catches him, and goes all Semper Fi on perv's ass.
- Police show up, take one look at situation, and arrest the dad.
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.And so we see that North Carolina is the Massachusetts of Dixie. Q. E. D.
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.
