PETA wants accused cannibal killer fed vegan diet
JEFFERSONVILLE, Ind. It has the stuff of a comedic one-liner, but PETA says it is dead serious in urging the local sheriff to feed an accused cannibal killer a vegan diet in order to swear off flesh while hes imprisoned.
Kenneth Montville, a national spokesman for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, said the proposal is aimed at making the groups point that meatless food can help reduce violent behavior and also save money for jails.
We really want to take a situation thats a tragedy and make it into something positive to reduce the total violence in the world, Montville said in an interview with the Jeffersonville News & Tribune.
Clark County Sheriff Brian Meyer said PETA made the suggestion in a letter dated one day after Joseph Oberhansley, 33, was arraigned in court Monday on charges of killing his ex-girlfriend, Tammy Jo Blanton, 46, and eating her flesh.
When I first saw the letter, I thought it was a cruel joke said Meyer.
When I realized it was real, my first thought was to not even respond because its ridiculous.
Meyer said the PETA proposal was out of line given the nature of the murder case. I cant believe they would be so insensitive to the victim and her family, he said.
PETAs Montville said it isnt the first time the organization has asked law enforcement to feed prisoners vegan diets. He said a similar request was made in a Tennessee murder case, and the cannibal aspect of the Jeffersonville murder made it especially appropriate.

PETA's letter follows:
On behalf of PETA and our more than 3 million members and supporters, including thousands across Indiana, I am writing to suggest, with all due respect, that you help alleged killer and cannibal Joseph Oberhansley swear off flesh by providing him with exclusively vegan meals while he is in your custody.
Some prison operators including those at Alabama's highest-security prison, William E. Donaldson Correctional Facility have found that switching inmates to vegetarian meals can be a successful part of a violence-reduction program. If Oberhansley did, in fact, kill Tammy Blanton and eat parts of her body, opting to feed him only vegan foods could diminish that bloodlust and might even help protect staff and neighboring inmates. In fact, a meat-free meal plan could benefit all your inmates if you'd like to explore it.
Every vegan meal served at your facility would save animals from coming to a gruesome end. Chickens, cows, and pigs have their throats slit, often while they are still conscious, and their bodies are then dismembered and cut into pieces.
Vegan meals are healthy and easy to prepare, and they can be less expensive than meat-based dishes. Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Maricopa County, Ariz., estimates that he will save $100,000 by eliminating meat from inmate meals and feeding them healthier and cheaper soy protein instead. PETA would be happy to help you design the perfect cruelty-free meal plan for the Clark County Jail.
Thank you for your consideration. I look forward to hearing from you.
PETA = People Eating Tasty Animals
He is already requested fava beans with a nice Chianti..
That's because they're too weak to get off their cots.
cruel and unusual punishment is banned, better to feed him vegans...
I wear a t-shirt that says this each year when I go to the circus. There is always PETA protesters out front of the arena, protesting the “mean” circus.
For the first time I am agreeing with PETA. A vegan diet would be a horrible punishment.
The headache I would have would be so bad it would kill me quickly.
Befitting a cruel and unusual crime to be sure.
On the other hand, pissing off PETA is also a worthwhile endeavor.
I kinda like those protests when PETA girls go out wearing only lettuce leafs.
Death by meat cravings.
Peta got in big trouble here in Connecticut for setting up a display on the New Haven town green comparing the killing of a chicken to the lynching of a black man.
That didn’t play well in New Haven.
Perhaps this is the solution to the whole issue. Can’t stop laughing everytime I see this scene from the Hitchiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.
I actually agree - feed the guy veggies only just to jerk his chain, before putting him in the chair.
You know how the left lumps its perverts into ‘LGBT’: lesbian, gay, bisexual and trannie.
They’ve added a couple more but I’ll be dipped if I can remember ... OK, I’m thinking PETA is laying the groundwork for yet another disgusting, horrible lifestyle choice to be foisted on the America public as “alternative” but acceptable.
Cannibalism (C): “Yeah, hi. We’re your new neighbors, the Millers, and we’re cannibals. Please don’t judge us, and that cologne you’re wearing ... Do you mean to say that’s .. *you*?”
Sure, it sounds wild but who’d a thought 20, no 10 years ago, that the government would pay Mad scientists (named Dr. Kutchyacokov?) to operate upon men in order to turn them into women, and women into men.
Who’d a thunk it?
Perverse isn’t a strong enough word.
