Exactly. That video has led to more than one arrest.

Unfortunately, I think what those horrible excuses for human beings were doing may only be misdemeanors in Ohio.

He was probably waiting to get a very solid crimanal case instead of escalating the situation and having the abusers destroy the footage so they don't get punished and get to keep abusing the poor animals.
Exactly. What self-control I could never sit there without doing something or sobbing....even if I told myself over and over it would stop if I got footage

Bearing in mind I have not watched the video (I can't), I was to the understanding the videos were static ie. Hidden cameras placed in key positions, not being handheld?

Whitefoot - Earthlings, that was the one, first ten seconds gave me nightmares for a year.

I can't watch this kind of stuff, my heart is too delicate. I seriously can't get over the images when I see them. I've learned the hard way to not watch.

This is what the criminal justice system is for, it usually does put a stop to people that make these poor choices when there is sufficient evidence against them. I believe these people have been arrested, and therefore I'd say the filming of the incidents was a success.

I will not watch the video because it upsets me too much to see animals abused but from the comments I can tell it was horrible.

I feel sorry for any animal that has to go through that kind of pain and suffering. Which is why I don't eat meat.

I'm aware that the justice system prevents some of this, but a lot of it, they won't even touch on. Take horse tripping, for example. It's been banned in a few states, but then the question arises, if they ban horse tripping they have to ban cattle tripping. A lot of rodeos have this as a main event. The justice system doesn't want to get involved with that.

Not even counting the things that the justice system doesn't know about: every individual who participates in animal abuse. They don't know most of this because it's down behind closed doors.

It sucks, but it's reality: The criminal justice system will never be able to put a stop to all animal cruelty

Your point has now changed, before you did not mention all. It would be difficult to say that we could stop all animal cruelty, of course. But we can certainly stop some and hopefully if history tells us anything regulations and animal welfare will get better and better.
