Why won't a well connected, Dallas Animal Shelter Advisory Commissioner say when she first learned of the trapped cat that died in shelter walls?

Last week, after presenting with very defensive and protective comments over the trapped cat incident at Dallas Animal Shelter, I asked Dallas Animal Shelter Advisory Commissioner, Rebecca Poling, via Facebook comments, when did she first learn of the trapped cat that was left crying and clawing for at least 6 days, in the walls of shelter before dying. Shelter Manager has been indicted on Felony Cruelty Charges; his boss, Kent Robertson quickly resigned after indictment of Tyrone McGill. Employees asked Tyrone to rescue the cat. Did Tyrone mention the trapped cat to Kent Robertson? If so, who did Kent Robertson mention it to? We the people deserve to know if any of the Commissioners knew of the trapped cat before it died. Just for the sake of integrity. Let's start with home base.

Guess what? Within two hours of asking Poling this evidently, daunting question, I lose my position of Ft. Worth Chapter President with Texas Humane Legislation Network (THLN)! Commission Chair, Skip Trimble is Secretary/Tresurer of THLN. Poling, Mr. Trimble and other THLN leaders are good friends. What's up with all of this? I smell something.
No one is above being questioned and because it's been several days with no answer from Poling, tells me that something really does smell pretty bad.

Tyrone McGill, Dallas Animal Shelter Manager Charged w/Felony Animal Cruelty - why is he still on payroll?

It shouldn't matter if he is convicted or not, he needs to be off the taxpayers payroll! He knew about a cat caught in between two walls at the Dallas Shelter and he didn't bother to rescue the cat. Cat died. Something is badly wrong here! And what about Kent Robertson? Where is he in all of this mess?!

Knock, knock....who's there -- America 2010, Land of Foolish Enablers

Knock knock, who's there? Your neighbor. I want to let you know that I know nothing about the value of personal responsibility; therefore, -- I want, and expect you, the taxpayer, to pay for my baby's prenatal care, birthing and any medical care my baby may need, cause I don't want to use a condom when me and the 16 year old girl down the street have sex. Also, since I don't wanna work -- I want, and expect you, the taxpayer, to pay for me to eat, drink and be a little merry throughout the day, each day. Also, I want a house -- I want, and expect you, the taxpayer, to contribute to my down payment. Oh, and, I don't really want to invest the time & effort into my children's education, schooling, emotional health or life and I don't really care what damage this envokes on their future -- I want, and expect you, the taxpayer, to pay for the detention, social services, counseling, rehabilitation, support, detox support, prison, food, care & clothing that my child will most likely need throughout his/her entire life. Another thing, I want a dog but can't afford it -- I want, and expect you, the taxpayer, to pay for all of my expenses related to the dog.
And the people say.....OK, we'll do.

This is America 2010! The land of foolish enablers. We need to desert this plan, and turn all of the social services business and hand outs, over to charity and take it away from our elected officials, they are abusing their powers and working against, not for, the taxpayers who supply their dollars to spend.

This is one way we should be solving the growing problem of dog overpopulation and rising taxpayer expense of Animal Control Services

"The program partners with schools, juvenile detention facilities, community centers, community based organizations......" not to mention the benefit to our youth, communities and society.

Ft. Worth Protecting Vagrants from the Law

City Code Sec. 30-12 states: "It shall be unlawful for any person to enclose, build upon or make any other private use of any part of the street, sidewalk or other right-of-way, without first obtaining the express authorization of the city."
I have sent email to Councilwoman, Kathleen Hicks, who represents this area of Ft. Worth, asking for clarification of the law and why the law is not being enforced here in East Ft. Worth.
To my knowledge, it against the constitution to segment sections of society and protect them from the law. Gosh, I wished I were wealthy, I could then hire many attorneys to process my arguments in court.
To make private use of city street(s), according the Ft. Worth Code, unlawful! If you are not going to enforce the law, get rid of it!! Or is it racial -homeowner profiling -- they only enforce it on white people who own homes.
(The Salvation Army shelter is in the picture to the left -- they hand out freebies.)

That Big Bang Of A Dog-Fighting Bust Turns Into A Weak Whimper In The Courtroom - Houston News - Hair Balls

That Big Bang Of A Dog-Fighting Bust Turns Into A Weak Whimper In The Courtroom - Houston News - Hair Balls: "prosecutors doled out light sentences because, in most instances, the defendants were spectators, and were not witnessed entering dogs in fights. (Participants in dog fights can face up to two years in prison; spectators can get a year in jail and a $4,000 fine)."
