Called to deal with a case of 8 week-old stray kittens nesting in a woodpile in someone's backyard, Officer Barry Accorti of the North Ridgeville police Ohio, unholstered his gun, and blasting away, shot the entire litter in front of the homeowner's kids.
Officer Accorti told one witness “the shelters were full and that these cats would be going to kitty heaven”. North Ridgeville Police Department Chief Mike Freeman backed his subordinates actions to the hilt saying that his subordinate's actions “were appropriate”. Now, obviously all cops are bastards but some a clearly utter c*nts into the bargain.
Well, yes, we all know that the G8 leaders are an absurd bunch of deluded fantacists. But in a real case of emporer’s new clothes, it seems that the host county’s council is more than willing assist by doing all it can to shield them from any, er, reality.
With the G8 circus just about to roll into town, could it really be coinicidence that, despite Ireland’s ongoing austerity squeeze, large treasure chests of cash have materialised to splurge on tarting up host town Enniskillen and surrounding area; cleaning up, painting, a few repairs, screening derelict buildings and, best of all, painting empty shops to look like full busy thriving shops.
The council have denied that they are planning to lock up all the residents and replace them with cardboard cut-outs of happy, prosperous aspirational consumers.
Maybe if all the protesters took some extra cardboard rioters with them we could have Seattle all over again...
