Im glad that they are being prosecuted.. Shows them they are not above the law like the rest of us.. Looks like they may even lose their jobs, since you can not have a felony and be police officer.. Props to people doing their job investigating this POACHING!!!!
Looks like they are throwing the book at the 2 cops for poaching the elk in Boulder. The local paper reported today they were charged with 4 felonies and 5 misdemeanors. Apparently, a local animal rights group also wanted them to be charged with another felony crime for cruelty to animals.
Sounds like the third cop (a Boulder county sheriff's deputy, I think) wasn't charged but could be if other evidence implicates he participated in any way other than talking about it with the other 2. Hopefully the trial will be straight forward and these 2 nincompoops will get what they deserve.
All I have to say about that is shame of those cops. Shame on them! They should get no special treatment. Shame on those neighborhood residence too. They should all be charged and fined with harboring and feeding wildlife, which they have all openly admitted to doing with that elk. That's also against the law. None of them should get off easy either.
In the spring of 2007 I was the unfortunate recipient of an injury cause by a damaged carbon arrow that shattered on release of the arrow. I was in the yard going to take a few practice shots before dinner and the second arrow is the one that did the damage. That day will forever be burned in my mind. After I release what happened I made mistake #2 I pulled the tail shaft of the arrow out of my hand causing more damage.
Thank goodness that my wife was home and was able to...
