American police have become militarized and have lost the concept of reasonableness. Nothing illustrates this point better than the outrageous raid carried out by 13 law enforcement officers at the St. Francis Society Animal Shelter in Wisconsin. The legalized thugs served a search warrant on the animal shelter because it had taken in a motherless young deer. The July 9th raid was the result of two anonymous tips that the shelter had a baby deer, which caused the full weight of the law to rain down on the do good animal society.
The offense? Possessing wildlife without a permit. The animal cops acted as judge and jury put little “Giggles” the fawn into a bag and took the little animal from the safety of the animal shelter and killed the innocent little thing! The animal shelter was across the street from the Illinois state line. The deer was a resident of Illinois because it had been found by Illinois residents who brought the animal to the St. Francis Society. Instead of extraditing little Giggles back to its state of birth where the St. Francis Society had found a permanent home for it the animal police murdered the fawn. According to Jennifer Niemeyer, the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources local warden supervisor, Wisconsin law requires the DNR to euthanize animals “because of the potential for disease and danger to humans.”
For more see “Baby Deer, ‘Giggles,’ Killed After Raid On St. Francis Society Animal Shelter,” “Armed agents raid animal shelter for baby deer” and “Wisconsin DNR defends removing fawn from shelter, killing it.” In the latter article the DNR says it took Giggles because the St. Francis Society didn’t have a permit for the deer. If that is the case, why didn’t DNR just send one civil servant to the animal shelter and say “Please complete this application for a permit for Giggles?” Instead, the DNR sent 13 armed thugs to terrorize the animal shelter people so it could kill the deer for its own good.
