Trying.. I checked the link and it didn't take me where i was Back in few.

Change.org is where I got the e mail from. Here is copy and paste.
First time that has happed. Best I can do guys/gals.



On June 10 in Lorain County, Ohio, North Ridgeville "Humane" Officer Barry Accorti responded to a call regarding a feral mother cat and her five kittens living in a woodpile in a homeowner's backyard. He told the homeowner that shelters were full and that the cats would be going to kitty heaven. He then pulled out his gun and shot to death the five 8 to 10 week-old kittens.

We are told that he discharged his gun approximately 15 feet from the backyard patio. Never did Officer Accorti let the woman know that he would be killing the kittens on site or that he would be firing a gun in her backyard. The woman ran into the house to shield her children who were screaming and crying. The mother cat is still alive.

Not only are there more humane ways to put down feral kittens, the poor judgement Accorti showed by firing a weapon in a backyard surrounded by other homes put people in danger. Allegedly Accorti told the woman that he isn't suppose to do this, but it was justifiable.

I live in Lorain County and this is not the type of behavior or poor judgement we expect from our police officers. Our citizens are outraged that this happened yet Police Chief Mike Freeman has already cleared Accorti of any wrongdoing. We find that unacceptable. Officer Accorti should not continue his position as a humane officer with the North Ridgeville Police Department.

Now we have a legit scumbag officer. But to be fair, he is animal control, one step below meter maids.

I am no way defending what the officer did. However, feral cats ARE a problem in many areas. Feral means "wild". If they are in your yard, they are fair game IMO. No different then a squirrel or chipmunk. They aren't always "someones pet". If they were someones pet, they'd train them to be an inside cat or put a bell on it's collar. Why should dog owners be required to keep their dogs on a leash and licensed yet cat owners can just open the door and let them roam as they please???

Calling this guy a cop is like calling a stewardess a pilot.

You must have missed the fact that he was a cop for over 30 years in the same town:

"Accorti retired as a sergeant with the North Ridgeville Police Department a few years ago and was hired as a part-time humane officer with the department"

So he is a legit scumbag cop. And wouldn't you know it, the words in the first article, "Police are defending the shooting". Still protecting one of there own as usual.

After 30 years, wreckless discharge of a gun is ruled out but I think , and its just my views, a little more respect for the area would have come into play with kids around and kitty's being killed. Taken them somewhere else after catching them to do that might have been a better idea. Argument on the other side if you had of called them to kill a snake, no one would have complained but Kittens are on that close to the heart pet thing, but apparently not to that guy.
Warranted but Bubba screwed that one up...........again. Dang good thing he ain't a elected official. LOL

I don't care what he did years ago, he is animal control now and he's not a cop. I guess the local cops don't like you and you are pissed that you can never talk your way out of the stop sign you blow by or the red light you eat. I hope the anger doesn't consume you.
