Five Years In Jail For Exposing Animal Abuses In Minnesota

Five Years In Jail For Exposing Animal Abuses In Minnesota

Have any owners of puppy mills, farms, labs, etc, where animal cruelty has been found been given a sentence of 5 years in prison? I doubt it, Yet people who peacefully expose this cruelty would get 5 years if these "men" get their way, Attacks on labs and lab workers in terrorism, but this is not, this in investigative work, just like any overcover police or FBI agents do. So filming or recording a crime taking place is now a crime in itself? So, if I film a bank robbery in progress, I'm going to prison? What is it with the politicians who support animal cruelty and try and stop it's exposure? Just how much do they have invested in puppy mills and other facilities were animal cruelty is practiced? Or is it just the votes they get from the owners of these places? It's pure greed either way, greed for money or greed for power, or both.
