Stupidity Rampant in Online News re “Abuse” of Animals

Here is a small test. Someone claimed animal abuse on a lady with X amount of dogs in Lodi, as seen in a Jersey online story… http://www.northjersey.com/news/14-dogs-allegedly-neglected-seized-from-lodi-home-1.1117760
“The investigation began when a neighbor complained that Capabianca was feeding feral cats in her back yard, said Aurelia Cruz, a state animal control officer. Cruz looked into the complaint on Oct. 18 and, while she was in the back yard, noticed a dog crate in the house “that did not look good.” She returned Thursday night with Santini and two Lodi officers.”
Dogs being removed Friday from the home of Deborah Capabianca, who faces charges including animal cruelty and failure to provide food and water.
SO HERE IS THE TEST:
WHICH IF ANY OF THE BELOW COMMENTERS, WOULD ONE WANT ON THEIR OWN JURY, IF
HIS OR HER SON OR DAUGHTER WAS ACCUSED OF ALLEGED ABUSE WHEN THERE WAS NO
ABUSE?

The sad thing that I think about is that this is probably happening in lots of cities all over the country and even the world….the problem is puppy mills and not regulating the breeding of animals enough…..some humans are just not evolved enough to be qualified to breed animals

    There are way too many humans indiscriminately breeding other humans doing a hell of a lot more damage than pet breeding. Pet breeding has already been regulated into extinction. Ten years from now you will not be able to find a nice pure bred dog anywhere, at least none you can affor to buy unless you’re in the wealthy 1%. Marlene, I think you’re a jerk. By the way, there’s no breeding mentioned in this story.

    Susan Dodge , seriously? You think this woman is a jerk because she wants to stop cruel reproduction of animals by people who are mentally ill, or just greedy? Do you have any idea how many dogs are in shelters, or euthanized for lack of a loving home? It has to be controlled, because people can’t help themselves. If you are so intent on buying puppy mill dogs, then consider yourself part of the problem, as opposed to part of the solution. Pet breeding has been legislated into extinction? Grow up.
