The Patrick County Sheriff’s Office released Tuesday the names of 80 people who have been arrested as a result of an 18-month investigation into illegal cockfighting in Claudville. Patrick County Sheriff Dan Smith said in an email Sunday that more than 50 officers from multiple law enforcement agencies executed a search warrant at 435 Long Branch Road at 1245 p.m. on Saturday. Smith said the site was the venue, and had been on multiple past occasions, for illegal cockfighting.(Snip) Cash, methamphetamine, firearms, multiple-edged weapons and assorted property, including vehicles, were seized from the property.

You’ll be surprised how cockfighting is accepted in Mexico, like boxing. While visiting there last year, I was invited to see one. It was definitely a cultural experience which I will not have again. It’s a different morality for sure.

This article doesn’t mention this, but I read yesterday where all the birds confiscated were euthanized. Seems counterproductive but what do I know?

Reply 2: those birds are completely worthless as barnyard fowl for obvious reasons and no good as food because they are juiced to the wattles with steroids. Losers in cockfights are thrown into the trash; not a dignified end for a fighter. Euthanasia is the right thing to do with confiscated birds.

This doesn't sound like the sort of sport Americans engage in. We eat chickens, we don't watch them fight.

Chances are well over 50% of the men arrested are illegal aliens from Mexico. Cock fighting is big in rural areas of Mexico.

It's realistically the national sport of the Philippines. I never saw the appeal but I don't know if it's much worse than hanging by your feet from a conveyor belt trundling you toward the beheading slicer at the processing plant.

A man who was in the United States illegally has been indicted on federal charges accusing him of kidnapping a 15-year-old Paterson girl and forcing her to perform sex acts as they drove to Chicago earlier this year. Juan Carlos Morales-Pedraza, 33, a Mexican national living in Paterson, pleaded not guilty before a federal judge and he was charged with kidnapping, transportation of a minor, and re-entering the country as a deported alien, federal prosecutors announced Tuesday. Pedraza abducted the girl, who was his neighbor in Paterson, on April 14 as the pair headed to the Midwest, officials allege.

Florida’s two senators demanded answers Tuesday after revealing the National Endowment for the Arts paid $45,000 for a traveling art exhibition featuring a portrait of socialist revolutionary Ernesto “Che” Guevara, saying U.S. taxpayers shouldn’t subsidize the idolization of a man involved in “mass murder.” Sens. Marco Rubio and Rick Scott said it was an insult to exiles who lived through the Cuban revolution to see their tax money go to aggrandize Guevara. “Guevara was a sadistic butcher who murdered and tortured innocent people,” they wrote in a letter to NEA Chairwoman Mary Anne Carter. “We do not believe that taxpayer dollars

Range Rovers have been shipped from the UK to southern Africa for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's ten-day tour, it was revealed today. The 4x4s were drafted in because organisers at the Palace were unable to locally obtain secure enough vehicles suitable for Harry, Meghan and baby Archie. The cars for the trip were understood to have been offered by Jaguar Land Rover, and were transported at no cost to the taxpayer, the Press Association reports. But the shipping of the cars over a 10,000-mile distance will raise further eyebrows over the couple's green credentials despite them promoting environmental issues.

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in a new interview scoffed at the unwanted touching allegations against Vice President Joseph R. Biden, saying voters need to “get over it” and vote President Trump out of office. Sitting down with People magazine in a joint interview with daughter Chelsea Clinton, Mrs. Clinton dismissed speculation that women might be less than enthusiastic about voting for Mr. Biden after several women came forward this spring and accused him of unwanted touching. The former vice president has since apologized for putting people in uncomfortable situations. “For goodness’ sake, I’m sorry, I have to jump in

The government’s special program granting a pathway to citizenship for immigrants who are victims of domestic abuse is rife with fraud, according to a new watchdog audit Monday that suggests migrants have figured out how to game the system. Fraud cases have quadrupled this year alone, the Government Accountability Office says, and now total about 13% of new applications from those who “self-petition” for protections under the Violence Against Women Act. Claiming abuse can be a fast track to citizenship, and at the very least usually serves as a shield against deportation and leads to immediate work permission for immigrants who

There is no reason to cut back on red meat for health reasons, according to a controversial claim by a group of leading scientists. Researchers in Canada, Spain and Poland have cast a shadow over eating advice adopted by health organisations around the world. In a landmark paper, the academics analysed past studies of how eating meat affected the health of more than four million people. They found no evidence that eating beef, pork and lamb could increase the rates of heart disease, cancer, stroke or type 2 diabetes–despite fears. And the team also said they found nothing strong enough to signal

First, it is likely that President Donald Trump violated some cockamamie administrative rule when he recently spoke with the new Ukrainian president about the potential corrupt dealings of former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter, in Ukraine. Fine. Can’t Trump just pay a fine or something? Yes, he should’ve been more careful (and he needs to tell Rudy Giuliani to calm down, as the former mayor risks perjuring himself before not one, but three Congressional committees). What Trump did was the equivalent of going 15 mph over the speed limit in rural Georgia: it happens. Rarely does anyone notice. Ignorance is still not a viable legal defense.

The most famous loser of a presidential campaign is peddling another book, so each day interviewers ask her vapid questions about how she feels. Naturally, she responds with vapid variations on a theme: Donald Trump is no good, he stole the election, the world is ending, I’m fine, thank you. Only she’s not fine, or she wouldn’t continue to embarrass herself by trying to rewrite history. She lost the election fair and square and even the “resistance” movement no longer pretends otherwise.

The University of Tennessee Police Department released footage Tuesday of Tennessee Volunteers linebacker Jeremy Banks’ comments to officers after he was arrested on an outstanding warrant, including one remark in which he tells a civilian riding with officers: "Where I'm from, we shoot at cops." Banks, 20, was arrested after he initially was pulled over for an illegal U-turn on Sept. 15. The video shows Banks’ interaction with the officers. Banks had a warrant for his arrest issued on Aug. 21 for failing to appear in court in July for a misdemeanor driving with a suspended license charge, according to the Knoxville Sentinel.
