Is it true one cannot practice law with a felony conviction on your record?
Tape the birds head back on to its body and sell it to a blind kid.
All of our pets heads are falling off!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Disgusting. No doubt these are future ACLU workers. Smarmy evil bastards. And Interesting comments from a few here....hate to be your pet, OR kid.
Watching too much Monty Python?
The bird didn’t think it was so funny.
Couple of Affirmative Action Lefties destroying other people’s property.
Where is PETA on this grassroots level attack?
It used to be. However, the practice has often been for judges in these kinds of cases to reduce charges when promising law students are involved. I know of a case back in the 1950s where several Stanford law students stole a yacht in San Francisco on a lark and ran it aground. I don't remember what the official penalties were, but I know the ring leader went on to practice law with Melvin Belli.
If the perp is already an attorney, they serve their time, pay their fines, and continue to appeal to get their law licenses back.
i assume it was a white bird since no one has accused them of a hate crime.
‘E’s not dead, ‘e’s just pinin’ for the glades!
The system protects their own.
Time to put these two in a mental ward for a full evaluation.Sane people don’t do things like this.
Lighten up, Francis. go to 2.15 on the video.
I am with you on this disgusting behaviour.
Where is the respect for Gods creatures, lack of respect for life and lack of remorse.
I somewhat understand the humor that freepers see in this situation, but remember these are future lawyers/politicians, maybe one day they will decide to pull our heads off because they were not dealt with today.
These are two are pycho or sociopaths
I agree about the nature of the comments. This was a disgusting act and I hope the creeps who did it get punished to the max.
To be so callous about the murder of a defenseless animal speaks volumes about a person’s character. Which I guess is why these idiots are enrolled in law school . . . in Berkeley.
Yes, sell it to a blind Berkley student and make sure the two get Felonies on their records.
--can't help but wonder about the immigration status of these two--?
Thank you and neither are the comments from some here and this always happens with animal cruelty stories on FR. Some come out and think its just the funniest thing they’ve ever heard or do a big “meh, who cares”.
Scary people here think like that. I guess if you show any compassion for animals you’re a left wing animal rights nut?
Idk. I always found some on FR reaction to animal torture or cruelty stories to be a little strange from a site claiming to be Christian in general.
This should tell you just what kind of lawyers they would be.
Disgusting. They better get kicked out of that law school.
