Is cock fighting a despicable sport? Yes, but it shouldn't rise to the
level of a felony.Fines, probation, and a few months in the county
jail should be enough to convince most people that staging cock fighting
contests is a bad idea. They would do better to support their local little
league, instead of a sport that offers little more than brutality.
Why does everything have to be a felony?America already has more
citizens locked up per capita than anywhere else in the world.America may be the home of the brave, but it's already the land of the
imprisoned.Why add to that problem? Do employees of the Utah
Department of Corrections need job security that badly?Why should
chickens have more rights than people?Sure, a misdemeanor makes
sense, but a felony for cock fighting? That's just dumb.
