Treat all animals with dignity, care

I have followed the activities of the group Compassionate Consumers for more than a year. I have viewed the Wegmans Cruelty video. The laws of this nation must be changed to protect the animals that we "pet" and also the animals that are consumed for food.

Any important change in this country seems to come only after some group or another "breaks the law." Why does it have to come to that?

The sentencing of Adam Durand to one year of probation, 100 hours of community service, $1,500 fine and six months jail time is absolutely a travesty of justice.

There are no words to describe how outraged I am at our justice system, a system that lets murderers and rapists walk the streets over and over again, forgives the CEOs of large corporations after they have ruined tens of thousands of lives, a system that put a young man who committed a misdemeanor, for the first time in his life, in jail.

The powers that be at Wegmans, Judge Dennis Kehoe and Wayne County District Attorney Richard Healy should rethink this sentencing.
