… the annual Goat Purge
Also, “Fair officials kill a little girl’s goat to ‘teach her a lesson’” probably not turning out so well in the PR department, either.
If they want to make sure the police don’t come near the goat, just hide it in a school during the middle of an active shooting.
Just to help keep everyone up to speed, Shasta County, CA is well and truly deep into The Great Unhinging:
As idiotic and tragic as this is, it is not at all surprising.
It certainly is, along with the corollary that rules are also there to be broken. Even rules of science, nature…
If it involves wilful abuse of power, then yes, absofuckinlutely!
Shasta County is an epicenter of the kind-of-ridiculous-and-never-gonna-happen “State of Jefferson” movement so that certainly fits.
Isn’t that what school shootings are for? /S
Isn’t using the police for a purely civil matter a form of SWATting?
Additional development. Nobody really knew what happened to the goat. Those who really knew aren’t talking. We suspect it’s been slaughtered after its retrieval by the deputies, but nobody can trace where it went EXACTLY.
Yeah, they Streisanded the hell out of that one.
Centuries and centuries of Cruel Imbeciles with Power.
