Here in Baltimore when these laws were passed by MARYLAND ASSEMBLY and/or Baltimore City Hall the 99% of WE THE PEOPLE LIVING IN GHETTOS shouted---you treat us like dogs-----why protect DOGS and not PEOPLE?
The answer is this: These are FALSE FLAG statutes and we know this because MARYLAND/BALTIMORE does not enforce civil law unless the US FEDERAL JUSTICE DEPARTMENT comes in and makes some arrests.
MOVING FORWARD ONE WORLD ONE GOVERNANCE HAS GOALS OF TAKING US TO COLONIAL STATUS COMPLETE WITH OVERSEAS THIRD WORLD CONDITIONS TO INCLUDE ANIMALS BEING USED JUST TO MAKE MONEY.
As is happening overseas in third world nations victims of FAILED STATE policies -----global banking 1% CORRUPTS social benefit policy by saying----
IT IS MORE HUMANE TO KILL THESE FERAL PETS----CATS AND DOGS THEN LEAVING THEM TO SUFFER NEGLECT.
Our US 99% of WE THE PEOPLE black, white, and brown will be hearing very soon this same argument over increasing numbers of abandoned PETS.
Carroll senator's amended animal cruelty bill passes Maryland Senate, advances to House

After being changed significantly in a Maryland Senate committee, Sen. Justin Ready’s bill seeking to hold those convicted of animal cruelty financially accountable unanimously passed the Senate Thursday., Feb. 14.
The bill now clarifies that judges can order a person convicted of animal cruelty to pay restitution for the cost of care an impounding agency — like animal control or a local Humane Society — accrues caring for a seized animal.
Lawmakers on the Senate Judicial Proceedings Committee — which Ready sits on — amended the bill after the committee’s chairman, Bobby Zirkin, D-District 11 (Baltimore County), suggested that it would violate the due process of those who are accused.
Senate Bill 152 originally sought to establish a legal procedure for people who have their animals seized because of animal cruelty charges. It would’ve mandated pet owners who wished to keep their animals pay for the costs of care accrued by the impounding agency that seized the animals until court proceedings are concluded.
“I like the concept of making an animal abuser pay,” Zirkin said at the Jan. 31 bill hearing. “But I would like to think that they’re actually the animal abuser before they are forced to give up anything other than spending time to go to trial.”
Now, the bill recommends that judges order restitution after they convict a person of animal cruelty, Ready, R-District 5 (Carroll County) told the Times.
“Many times judges felt they couldn’t order restitution,” Ready said, citing testimony by animal workers from around the state during the bill hearing Jan. 31.
“The Humane Society of the United States appreciates the senate committee’s agreement that animal abusers should be responsible for paying for the cost of caring for their animals, even while they are in the custody of animal control, and clarifying that judges can award restitution to agencies for these costs as a condition of sentencing for convicted animal abusers,” Emily Hovermale, the Maryland director of the Humane Society, said in an emailed statement.
Should it become law, the amended legislation would authorize courts to order a defendant to pay — in addition to court fees and legal costs — “all reasonable costs incurred in removing, housing, treating, or euthanizing an animal confiscated by the defendant.”
Restitution, Hovermale said in her testimony before the committee Jan. 31, is an imperfect solution.
“In cases where (animal control agencies) are awarded restitution, that’s something that they often never see,” Hovermale told lawmakers.
Ready said that the amended bill doesn’t fix cases where animal control agencies seize large amounts of animals and accrue massive care costs, but does protect the taxpayer from paying all of the cost of animal care at local humane societies and animal control facilities.
In her testimony before the committee Jan. 31, Crystal Mowery, field services director for the Humane Society of Washington County, highlighted various animal seizure cases — including one where her agency seized 39 dogs from a home.
Because her agency had to house and care for so many dogs while one case played out in court, the Humane Society was limited in the care it could provide for regular strays. If the strays weren’t adopted within five days of intake, she said, they had to be euthanized due to a lack of space and resources.
“Unfortunately, the legislation that passed the senate does nothing to address the issues caused by the lack of a workable civil procedure to determine the disposition of seized animals,” Hovermale wrote. It “will do nothing to help with the issues for the agencies and the animals that are caused by forcing seized animals to live in animal shelter kennels for months awaiting the outcome of the owner’s criminal trial.”
Ready’s bill was introduced in the Maryland House of Delegates Friday and assigned to the House Judiciary Committee. The bill would have to be OK’d by the committee before it returns to the House floor, where lawmakers would vote on adopting the bill into law.

Detroit Cockfighting Gambling Ring Uncovered
An underground cockfighting gambling ring has been uncovered by federal immigration authorities in Detroit, and the bust could lead to the deportation of dozens.

The United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) raided an abandoned building in southwest Detroit last weekend that turned up gambling evidence and around 100 gamecock birds. Around 50 people were detained and now face deportation, and one additional person has been arrested on criminal charges.
Along with the US Department of Homeland Security, the US Border Patrol, US Department of Agriculture, and local and state authorities carried out the seizure.
“This operation was taken down because we had information that it was a nuisance in the community,” ICE spokesman Khaalid Walls explained.
The blood sport of cockfighting dates back thousands of years. Not all fights are to the death, but the birds involved almost always suffer extreme physical pain and trauma.
While cockfighting remains common in Southeast Asia, it’s illegal in all 50 US states plus the District of Columbia.
ICE hasn’t released details on the detained immigrants. However, in Mexico, cockfighting is also illegal, though it is permitted in the city of Ixmiquilpan. The practice is also still legal in several US territories including Puerto Rico, Guam, and the Virgin Islands.
It’s hard to imagine a more despicable form of gambling than betting on the outcome of an animal fight. That’s why when the perpetrators who organize and attend such events are caught by law enforcement, they often receive little public support.
Quarterback Michael Vick can certainly attest to that fact, though the NFL player did manage to make a comeback years after being caught participating in dog fighting.
When today's new immigrants to US CITIES AS FOREIGN ECONOMIC ZONES hail from Asia, Arabia, Africa, Caribbean they naturally bring these cultural attitudes towards PETS AS ANIMALS USED TO MAKE MONEY
While I am DUCKING AND DODGING for being a REAL LEFT SOCIAL PROGRESSIVE activist shouting against policies MOVING FORWARD------it is very easy to see with POLITICAL MACHINES as NIHILISTS and new immigrants from third world nations having different cultural feelings---that the WESTERN MORAL AND ETHICS HUMANISM ----will be a great big loser.

Cockfighting, known as “Murgh Janghi” in the Afghan Dari language, is a popular game among Afghans during the winter season, which was banned by the Taliban rulers. The heels and bills of the birds are sharpened before fights, which run around 4-6 rounds. Each round lasts between 10 to 20 minutes with a gap of 5 minutes in between bouts. Some 100,000 to 200,000 Afghanis ($2,000 to $4,000 USD) can exchange hands among spectators placing bets during these fights.

MORE ON COCKFIGHTING:
Abhorred by animal rights activists around the world, cockfighting may be one of the earliest spectator sports with traces back to 4000 BC Persia. Despite being illegal in all 50 states, The Humane Society claims that cockfights still occur today and describes cockfighting in the following way:
Left to themselves, roosters almost never hurt each other badly. In cockfights, on the other hand, the birds often wear razor-sharp blades on their legs and get injuries like punctured lungs, broken bones and pierced eyes—when they even survive.

What the Bible Says about Animal Abuse

His Eye is on the Sparrow: What the Bible Says about Animal Abuse
By Betty Miller
Pastors Bud & Betty Miller
Does God of the Bible hear the cries of the abused animal who does not communicate in human language? Does His heart respond to the fearful meowing of a motherless kitten or the exhaustion of a donkey staggering under a load far too heavy for it?
Does He care about the animals that are bred in cramped quarters and exploited for profit?
Does He care about animals who are made to fight to the death, as men watch and gamble on which one will win?
Does God approve of men who race dogs until they drop dead of exhaustion?
What about spearing a bull to death after it performs before a blood thirsty crowd?
Did He create animals to be used in such a way?
We know from scripture that God was so interested in the welfare of the animal kingdom that He created, that He even commanded Noah, in the time of judgment on the earth, to make the ark big enough to hold two of every kind of animal that existed.
Biblical Care of All God’s Creatures
The Bible actually has much to say in regard to animal abuse. In the beginning, God created the earth and all the creatures on it to be under the authority of humanity. 'He entrusted these beautiful elements of His creation to our care (Genesis 1:26). Our sinful nature causes us to abuse the animal kingdom, sometimes without even realizing it'. Yet, God expects the Christian, above all others, to be sensitive to all of His creation, knowing that exploiting or abusing it shows a disrespect for God Himself. Abuse of anything that God made is not the character of God, but rather of the Evil One.
“A righteous man cares for the needs of his animal, but the kindest acts of the wicked are cruel” (Proverbs 12:10). Throughout the Bible, God shows how He expects us to care for our animals in practical ways. In the Law of the Israelites, for example, one of the purposes of the Sabbath year of rest for the land, was to let the land lie fallow–and so that the poor as well as livestock and wild animals could eat from it (Exodus 23:11 and Leviticus 25:7). The Sabbath day itself was not only for humans to rest. God also commanded us to give our animals rest on the same day (Exodus 20:10).
He also commanded the Israelites to help both their friends and enemies when their ox or donkey had fallen over, or was carrying a burden too heavy for it to bear (Exodus 23:5 and Deuteronomy 22:4). In addition, livestock were also allowed to eat as they worked (Deuteronomy 25:4). Finally, God says to us in Proverbs 27:23: “Be sure you know the condition of your flocks, give careful attention to your herds.”
Part of the reason that God anointed young David to be king over Israel, was that he was a good shepherd and could be trusted with the sheep under his care, even risking his life for them when they were attacked by lions or bears (1 Samuel 17:34). God knew that if David had this sort of heart for his sheep, he would be a faithful shepherd over an even greater treasure–the people of Israel.
God’s Divine Care and Provision
Wild Animals–His eye is on the sparrow: In addition to domesticated animals, God also watches over wild animals and commands us to do the same. In Deuteronomy 22:6-7, God promises a long life to those who will watch over wild birds. If we rape the land or the creatures in it, what will sustain us in the future? He allows for the taking of eggs, but commands that we release the mother bird to continue living in the wild and reproducing as He intended. In Job 38:41, God says that He hears the cries of newborn ravens crying to Him for food. Jesus went on to say that God supplies food for the wild birds and that not one of them falls to the ground without Him knowing it.
Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they? Matthew 6:26
These small, but kind and practical commands written throughout the Bible give us good insight into how God expects us to treat animals. Surely we will have to answer to Him for any abuse that we have committed against them. God created animals for us to love and to learn from. In them, we see our own dependence upon God illustrated in their dependence upon us. We can also see elements of our foolishness manifested in them (who has not seen a crowing rooster and laughed at the comic caricature of ourselves crowing to all the world in our foolish pride at times?) In addition, God also tells us to learn from their wisdom: “Go to the ant, you sluggard; consider its ways and be wise! It has no commander, no overseer or ruler, yet it stores its provisions in summer and gathers its food at harvest” (Proverbs 6:6-8).
But ask now the beasts, and they shall teach thee; and the fowls of the air, and they shall tell thee: Or speak to the earth, and it shall teach thee: and the fishes of the sea shall declare unto thee. Who knoweth not in all these that the hand of the LORD hath wrought this? In whose hand is the soul of every living thing, and the breath of all mankind. Job 12:7-10
Although worship of animals as deities is strictly forbidden in Scripture, we are to respect them as a part of God’s creation. Some believe that because only humans were created in God’s image, they alone are worthy of respect and care. Yet, the Bible tells us that even the angels were not created in God’s image, yet we are to respect them! We are to respect all of God’s created order, not to worship facets of it, but to see in it the same call that we ourselves have, which is to glorify God. All of God’s creation was made with the ability and the power to glorify Him, each in different ways. In this, animals, as well as humans, share a common element with the rest of creation.
Perhaps the words from these Psalms say it best of all:
Praise the Lord from the heavens, praise him from the heights above. Praise him all his angels, praise him, all his heavenly hosts. Praise him, sun and moon, praise him all you shining stars. Praise him, you highest heavens and you waters above the skies. Let them praise the name of the Lord, for he commanded and they were created. He set them in place forever and ever; he gave a decree that will never pass away. Praise the Lord from the earth, you great sea creatures and all ocean depths, lightening and hail, snow and clouds, stormy winds that do his bidding, you mountains and all hills, fruit trees and all cedars, wild animals and all cattle, small creatures and flying birds kings of the earth and all nations, you princes and all rulers on earth young men and maidens, old men and children. Let them praise the name of the Lord, for His name alone is exalted; His splendor is above the earth and the heavens. Psalm 148: 1-13
Let everything that has breath praise the Lord. Psalm 150:6
Some people don’t abuse animals, but go to the opposite extreme and place animals above human life. This was not God’s intention either, but rather that He wanted to bless mankind with a wonderful world of creatures that we could enjoy and with that enjoyment, He also holds us responsible, as to how we treat and care for them. May we all take that responsibility seriously, as we shall be judged for the way we treat animals and all of God’s creation.
