Guess the race

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – Three young men were arrested Tuesday after police said they beat up a Navy veteran who asked them to stop torturing a turtle, according to Daytona Beach police.

A woman was walking her toddler around a pond at Wedgewood Apartments and told police she saw three men torturing a turtle. She went home and told her husband, Gary Blough, they were “smashing up a turtle.”

    That appeared to be a Riddley, I thought that it was was a felony to kill one of those.

      If it is a Riddley, then it is a felony to just touch one of those, block its path, shine lights to confuse it, etc. You literally have to get permission to help an injured one. Best bet is to call the local cops who will call the local turtle rescue people who will take care o it.

      Killing one, well, that is supposed to be a major federal felony punishable by up to 10 years in the Fed Pen.

    Unfortunately the guy was a disabled veteran. Had I come upon that, I can guarantee at least one those three wouldn’t have been walking away to be picked up later. There’d have been blood on my hands and I wouldn’t lose a seconds sleep over pummeling these cretins. It’s time we start turning the tide on this violent segment of society and have a mantra. We’ll revisit your violence with 2X’s what your doling out. And while they’re not the sharpest segment of our society, the thought of a good old white boy ass whoopin may be enough of a deterrent.

      rayvet, I seem to remember a recent President who counseled “hitting back twice as hard.”

      Or words to that effect.

    It seems to had been a freshwater turtle from the location (too inland) so they only eat the Cruelty charges for the turtle.
    If it were a marine turtle, they would have won a 5 year stretch at the closest Hard Time State facility.

    I’m guessing they were probably Amish ! You know how evil those people are.

    future serial killers. zero empathy. it’s almost like someone made them that way.

    who would want to do that? /sarc

    keep a close eye on these assholes. they’re likely to be the ones with the cattle prods guarding the “re-education” camp.

    If you’re going to confront these little porch monkeys, do it with your pistol in your pocket and a base ball bat in your hands. Hand all three a solid beat down and see if that doesn’t change their attitudes.

    I’m also sick and damned tired of the news media refusing to publish names and photos of criminals less than 18 years old. What’s the problem? They were old enough to commit the crime – let the general public see who they are, and publish a few pix of their parents as well.

    Always carry. If he had, chances are we would be reading a story with a happy ending.
