Don't forget: McCoy killed Animal Cruelty Bill



















"The cat showed up on the porch of a Monroe Township home on Jan. 30 with a blow dart in its left eye. The dart - the kind that’s only fired out of a gun of sorts - came out the back of the cat’s neck." Article

Just a reminder that SB #2623 would have made the above picture a first-offense felony. Speaker Billy McCoy double referred the bill so that it would die in committee. While everyone blames Farm Bureau, don't forget it was their lapdog House Speaker Billy McCoy who used every legislative trick in the book to kill the bill. Here's to you Billy Boy, you earned full credit for this one.

The part about this that people fail to get is that the kind of people who do this stuff GET OFF on hurting the helpless. It's not the fact that they are animals, it is that they are helpless animals. These people aren't the ones on the prowl for bobcats or wolves, they go after cats and dogs.

The kind of people who want to hurt helpless creatures ARE the ones who turn on humans. The "entertainment value" of hurting small animals will diminish to the point that they need bigger "kills." That's when they turn against kids, family members, strangers, etc.

monroe? miss law wouldn't have stopped that dart

Might not have stopped it, but it would have locked him up for an appreciable period of time. Why you fail to recognize that distinction...get your head out of your ass.

MS-FACT, the spearheaders of ths movement to get this bill passed are in need of $$$. They are going to be having a a Doggie Beg-a-thon soon in order to raise much-needed cash. Check out the website if you really want to do something about this. Or join them and help with some work that needs to be accomplished. MS-FACT.org... and yes, this is a shameless request for donations and help. Dogs and cats, vulnerable people need your help.

God bless that poor cat. And that's NOT considered a felony. Unreal. To be honest, I'd like to commit a felony all over Billy Boy McCoy. No, that's not Christian but it would sure feel right.

Let's just routine vote AGAINST incumbents untit the dumb asses get they work for US.

Does McCoy always look this angry? I have lived here for only 10 yrs and every time I see him on TV or in photos he looks so constipated?

Anonymous said...

That is the look of a man who hates baby puppies and kittens! I am only half kidding. Maybe that is the expression formed on one's face when they know they are sold out and owned.

Anonymous said...

Yes, Kingfish, I agree.

KF, (6:12) you are sooooo succinct. Pithy, even ;-)

Couldn't add anything if I tried - you nailed it.

This is so horrible, I shouldn't be surprised at cruelties some people can do to innocent animals, but unfortunately sometimes I am. Keep it up KF, maybe the voters will remember this at election time.

So,do we know how much FB has contributed to McCoy? Does he attend their conventions aka free vacations>
I'm a follow the money kind of gal.

1:13, all you need to do is rove around in the Secretary of State's website and you would be amazed at what you can find under campaign prior to 2008 ....... look under MS Farm Bureau and see who they gave to. you can also do it under McCoy's name. you can also go under expense reports for Smantha Cawthorn and see how often AG committee memebers get to wine and dine with FB

Kingfish said...

Exactly. While everyone lambasts Ward, the real culprit is McCoy. McCoy is the one who double referred the bill and picked the toughest committee he could send the bill to.

While drinking and dining together tonight, Speaker Billy McCoy, FB's David Waide and an assortment of other political types were over heard discussing David Waide's plans to run for Governor in 2011 as an Independent...scary!!!

Anonymous said...

What a bunch of sick freaks! All in bed together. So to speak. Let's not forget when their names come up.

just getting started said...

We can all pray (and vote) that Waide's political career as a want to be governor is just! WANT TO BE and never will be! Thank you Kingfish for keeping the people enlightened!

You have to do MORE than vote. You have to contribute in 2011 to the candidates opposing McCoy, Ward, et al. We have to fund the opposition because one look at the campaign finance reports will demonstrate that McCoy, Ward et al are PAC WHORES. It takes more than a vote. It takes money and blood and sweat.

Animal cruelty is a crime. There is a viable punishment for such. Why must it be a felony? Is there a rash of animal cruelty cases that are somehow being missed?

4:48- Having a felony conviction for the most heinous acts of torture isn’t just about putting someone in jail for a longer period of time. It is about ensuring that these people have a felony record so that they cannot get a job working in a school, nursing home, hospital, or anywhere else that would include contact with children or vulnerable adults. It is about making sure that violent offenders do not possess guns. It is about a parent’s right to protect his or her child from a violent offender who could work in their child’s school because the offender didn’t get a felony conviction, even after committing an egregious act of violence. It is, quite simply, about ensuring community safety. A first offense felony for animal abuse is a law enforcement and mental health issue. If our jails are full, sentence these violent offenders to house arrest with ankle monitoring devices, but don’t turn them loose, without a felony record that a potential employer can look up, to work with those who may not have a voice of their own – our children, vulnerable adults, and our pets, These offenders need psychological evaluations, and often, counseling. SB 2623 would have provided these options.

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).


Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.


In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.
