Outrage of the Week - PETA Wants Inmates Running Asylum

Friday, January 25, 2008

 This week’s outrage comes from the Smith County Sheriff's Jail near Dallas, Texas.  Sheriff J.B. Smith recently received a fax from the national headquarters of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), one of the largest animal-rights groups in the country, which is also virulent in its opposition to hunting and fishing.    

PETA asked the sheriff and jail officials to refrain from serving any meat products to inmate Christopher McCuin -- a man jailed for murdering his girlfriend and “possibly participating in cannibalism” of the victim’s body.   PETA Vice President Bruce Friedrich wrote, “It is up to [the Sheriff] to prevent McCuin from contributing to any more suffering and death.”  

Obviously, this is just another ridiculous request from the folks who consider drinking milk and eating cheese crimes against nature.  But the true outrage lies in the reasoning behind PETE making such a request.   

“Like humans, animals are made of flesh, blood, and bone,” said Friedrich.  “Only in a culture where people routinely kill and eat living, feeling beings would anyone even think to kill and eat a human loved one.”  Friedrich compared eating a hamburger to eating human flesh, saying that all meat is from a corpse, and absurdly warned that the alleged murderer and cannibal, McCuin, might become violent and kill if he ate meat!  

After grafting their extremist agenda to a cannibalistic psychopath, what’s next?  Would PETA suggest that America’s hunters and anglers should be treated as murderers and cannibals?   

The fact that that question must even be pondered speaks volumes and reminds us, yet again, that PETA remains outrageous.
