A homeless man was sentenced today to 60 days in jail for choking a pelican to death because he was hungry.

The District Attorney's Office said Sergio Alvarez, 30, caught the bird near the Malibu pier on Aug. 22.

About 5:50 p.m. that day, a bystander flagged down a sheriff's deputy and said a man was choking a pelican.

If this hungry transient had been caught in Malibu choking his chicken instead, the liberal locals would have left him alone ...

He now has three hots and a cot for the next 60 days.

Such is life under Obamanomics ... go figure.

Pelican ... I’ll bet it tastes like Malibu chicken.

I’d rather have fed this turd to the pelican than vice versa. Probably high at the time. I hate the homeless here in L.A., absolutely hate them. I stood at the bus stop just the other day and watched some bum shell his boiled eggs and throw the shells into the street. Trash can was just a couple feet away, but no, he’d rather throw his trash in the street. At that moment, I’d have cheerfully fed him to Uday Hussein’s dogs. Alive.

He should have claimed self-defense.

Understood.

I grew up in the area (Agoura Hills) and my favorite hangout was Zuma Beach back in the day.

I keep to myself in Temecula now ... and commute to San Diego. I try to stay away from LA as much as possible.

This around the 3rd time an article about this guy was posted

Sounds like 3 hots and a cot is what he was looking for. Funny how the Californication gummint gives the dirt bags what they want.

The Judge was going to give the homeless man probation, and asked the man what pelican tastes like.

The homeless man said it tastes somewhere between a bald eagle and a whooping crane.

60 Days.

"caught it and killed it"

"flapped its wings in distress until its body went limp and died"


Sounds more like he tortured the poor thing to death. Note to homeless: if for some reason you absolutely must kill a pelican, show some humanity and just brain it and snap its damned neck

...or maybe he wasn't hungry and he was just enjoying himself.

Confucius say:

Give a man a meal and you feed him for a day.

Teach a man to choke a pelican and you feed him for 60 days.

if this was a wild pelican and not privately owned, I would vote to acquit

Years ago when going through school I worked night desk clerk at a motel near Tampa. Guy came in to the restaurant there and ordered the best dinner we had then came to the desk and told me he had no money and to call the cops.
I told him to get the hell out of there.
It was february and cold.
He thanked me and promptly walked across the street, picked up a cinder block and threw it through a shell gas station window,.
He wanted to get in from the cold and get a few meals.

Just think how long and how many people Jesus could have fed if he was splitting loaves and pelicans instead of fish.

I’d heard L.A. was why they invented Neutron bombs.
Do away with the crazies and leave Zuma alone.
What a great beach Zuma is.

Check this out. You can get 180 days of meals for stealing two candy bars in Ocala Florida — 180 days — and you don’t have to wrestle with a pelican to get it either.

From Amazon's description of the famous book, Stations of the Lost:

When first published in 1970, Stations of the Lost won the C. Wright Mills Award for Best Book in the Area of Social Problems. The study considers the Skid Row alcoholic from two points of view, that of the alcoholic himself and that of the agents of social control who treat him. A major discovery of Wiseman's research was that Skid Row men spend only about one third of the year on Skid Row. The rest of the time is spent "making the loop"—going from Skid Row to city jail, to county jail, to the state mental hospital, to the missions, and back to Skid Row. While these facilities are designed to handle or rehabilitate Skid Row men, they are actually used by these men as a means of survival.

...well ...he must have been pretty adroit to capture a wild bird.

The cops couldn't catch a peacock the other day....

Here in Florida I’ve had a chance to add to that through personal observation, the snow bird skid row guy.
Skid row weather followers. Go south for the winter north for the summer. Just like them rich folks do.

He should get pelican poop cleanup detail for a year .. at least the pelican community can sleep soundly, for 60 days anyway.. once ya choked a pelican, a chicken or pigeon will never do again. reckun the recidivist rate is pretty high.. or maybe not. ;-)

If this hungry transient had been caught in San Francisco choking his chicken, a parade would have formed behind him.

Obviously, you suffer from “Hobophobia.”

I do indeed. I used to feel some sympathy, till I got to see them up close. I ride the bus, so I get a good long look at their behavior. Most of them have exactly the life they deserve.
