CROSS POST TO EVERYONE WHO LOVES ANIMALS!
Wednesday, Jan. 30, 2008 * 2:00 pm
P.G.T. Beauregard Middle School
1201 Bayou Rd., St. Bernard, LA
Locally we know this as St. Bernard Hwy., the continuation of N. Rampart to St. Claude, and turns into St. Bernard Hwy. after Arabi.

Show support against the dismissal of charges of the two St. Bernard parish sheriffs who were involved in the murder of dozens of pets. If you cannot be there at that time, place flowers and notes anytime today or tonight or tomorrow morning… We need to send a message that blatant cruelty should be prosecuted. We need to give these murdered pets a voice since they are no longer here because of the heinous shootings that happened in St. Bernard Parish in the days after Katrina.

+++++++++++++++++++++++

If You Can’t Attend, Donate Toward Flowers For Memorial

MEMORIAL FOR DOGS SHOT POST-KATRINA…

In lieu of the recent dismissal of all charges of the two deputy sheriffs that were charged in the street shootings that were filmed. Flowers will be placed at Beauregard Middle School in memory of these animals.

All who are interested can meet at Beauregard Middle School in St Bernard Parish (where 33 dogs were found slaughtered) at 2:00 pm on Wed Jan. 30.

A photojournalist for the Washington Post will be there to take photos…Attorney General Caldwell needs to see people do still care about the animals and do not support his decision in this case.

IF YOU CANNOT ATTEND, DONATE TOWARD FLOWERS FOR MEMORIAL:

A florist is accepting donations for flowers. We want as many as possible.
She’ll make a basket as well as single flowers to be placed at the school.

DONATE ANY AMOUNT & YOUR NAME WILL BE ADDED TO CARD:
FLOWERS BY JANICE
6609 JEFFERSON HWY.
504-737-1233

CONTACT ME BY EMAIL IF YOU DONATE…
so we can keep track of all transactions.

Kinship Circle - 2008-01-29 - St. Bernard Killings Memorial

Spc. Chelsey Tucker, Army National Guard, tells reporters: “Everyone forgets about them. They didn’t really have a choice about getting out.” Spc. Tucker shakes the paw of one of the forgotten dogs of St. Bernard Parish. From photojournalist David Leeson’s video that also depicts Mike Minton of the St. Bernard Parish Sheriff’s office randomly shooting displaced pets.

According to Dr. Pia Salk, a clinical psychologist specializing in the human-animal bond, who co-led the post Katrina animal rescue effort in New Orleans, “It takes a very sick individual to assert his power by abusing the defenseless. And it takes a diseased system to justify and permit this. As long as a culture deems particular beings to be of less worth, whether because of their gender, ethnicity or in this case species, it will then allow for violence against those beings. This is the root of all social injustice.” drpiasalk [at] gmail.com, 323-899-4160
