Freedom for the Police Horses

Retirement Party for the Police Horses
The Horses need a little bit of Justice
The Horses need a little bit of Justice
When I was at the eviction of Occupy in Portland and the police horses were forced into the crowd, the first thought that went through me was the horses were going to hurt someone. The second thought was why the hell are the police using animals to hurt other humans. Now my thoughts are to take the horses away from the cops. Seems like a good project for us to take on. Want to "take a ride on the Justice side?" This is something all of us can give some time to, maybe we can see these beautiful horse retired to a farm, enjoying life. I know we are all busy but I got really pissed at the cops for making these animals move into the crowd and risk being hurt, when all the horses wanted to do is eat some hay. E-mail me and after some ground work, if enough of you feel bad for those horses as I did that night, let's work to "Free the Police Horses."

I agree with taking horses away from the cops to use as weapons but lets too take the canine units away. Both the horses and the dogs are being subjected and exploited to being part of the use of force against others and they as well may be hurt or killed in the process.
