Is it true one cannot practice law with a felony conviction on your record?

The bird didn’t think it was so funny.

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.

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.

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.

It’s a known fact that serial killers start out by killing animals then move up to humans.These two need to be watched.

This is the ethical, spiritual and moral nature of humanism. Immediate gratification sickopathic attention whores.

This is what liberals replaced America’s culture with in the culture war. I understand that it’s liberty, only smarter and superior to the judgemental, boring and racist American-American Western culture that grew out of our constitutional Republic. According to liberals, it’s cool and edgy.

Emphasize the kicking part. Kicked, beaten, pummelled, thrashed out of school and into the local bone clinic. Save the courts money and give them time served in plaster and bandages.

“It’s all right officer...I have an azz-kicking warrant.”

“Carry on, citizen.”

"It’s a known fact that serial killers start out by killing animals then move up to humans.These two need to be watched."

That's mostly right, but not completely. John Douglas, generally regarded as the pioneer of modern criminal profiling and founder of the FBI's Behavioral Science Unit (Later "Investigative Support Unit) identified a triad of predictive behaviors. In interviewing virtually every known serial killer in captivity at the time, Douglas concluded that in their youth there were three behaviors that tended to surface over and over again. These included, animal torture, latent bedwetting (into the teen years) and pyromania. IIRC, without exception, all known serial killers at the time acknowledged at least two of the three, but there were a percentage who did not exhibit (or at least admit to) the animal torture.

This kind of cruelty to animals is a precursor to other depraved behavior. These to losers should have to wear a sign in public warning people. Instead of practicing law or anything else they should be picking trash up along the hwy

Just tell the “authorities” the bird flew into one of Baraq & Harry’s wind turbines. Those bird kills are totally ok with the media.
