Do you agree with the petition, to stop hiding animal cruelty or disagree?
I strongly agree with the petition.
"By hiding online records of welfare violations, U.S. agency robs journalists, investigators, and the public of timely information—and takes pressure off abusers."
What do welfare violations have to do with animal cruelty or the USDA?
Just realized you meant the welfare of the animals. Sorry.
Everyone should expose all Cruelty. People are animals too. There are tons of horrible things happening to all of God's creatures every day. Child molestation, forced prostitution, rape, murder, and on, and on.
Yes. I do believe that the welfare and humane treatment of animals, is of far more importance than any 'privacy concerns' of those who profit from and abuse those animals.
"We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America."
Nothing there about treatment of animals, guaranteeing profits to bankers, indoctrinating children, giving money to unwed mothers, or most of what the modern government does. Most officials would be totally unable to defend themselves against a charge of treason.
Humane treatment of animals = establish justice in my opinion.
Yes because people who abuse animals are more likely to abuse people. Fact!
