Oh, so torturing animals is "free speech"???? :banghead:
I am glad someone started a thread on this. The supreme court overturned it 8-1. Only one justice believed that two of the examples the defendant was being charged with absolutely rose to the same levels that child porn are banned under in spite of free speech.
In other words, because the law was badly written, it is no longer against the law to film and then distribute snuff films of any animal. Fetish videos where woman stomp to death small animals? Check. Any reproduction of an animal being tortured or dismembered? Check. Dog fighting, bear baiting? check.
I hope Congress get's a fix in place ASAP. Because the guy who triggered this case is walking away scott free. It is head shaking.
Yes. I agree the law was badly written, because Animal Planet films could have been prosecuted under the guidelines of the law. But it was a good start. And now it is all gone. Struck down and good by.
Animal cruelty is illegal so why is distributing films depicting real animal cruelty not illegal? It should be and I'm dumbfounded about the overturning of this law. I also found out that NPR was one of the media outlets that submitted briefs to the court supporting the overturning of this law. NPR has received its last dime from me ever. I wont support any organization who would support the over turning of a very sensible and neccesary law.
So the Supreme Court is encouraging people to film and sell animal abuse? Animal Control works so hard to stop abuse and then you have the highest court approving it. This is one of the reason why our country's thinking is so messed up.
I have no words.:furious::furious:
