Via MyFox Memphis:
Shelter workers have filed a grievance over the internationally watched web cameras at the Memphis Animal Shelter. They claim they’re being threatened by people watching.
“They’re the only ones, nobody else in city government has to work with cameras over their shoulders,” said Memphis Mayor A C Wharton.
Mayor Wharton, how many divisions of your government starved sentient beings to death in recent years? How many divisions include the needless killing of healthy/treatable pets in their daily duties? How many divisions currently have a staff member on suspension pending criminal cruelty charges in connection with her city job? How many divisions are hanging cats in tongs before killing them?
Cause see, I was thinking that MAS was the one and only division of your administration that needed the webcams in order to be held accountable to the public. But if you have other divisions like this, do tell. I’m sure voters would be very interested to hear. Otherwise, it is a false equivalency to compare MAS to other divisions of your administration. Furthermore, it is an insult to your constituents and to the deeply held belief that American government is by the people and for the people.
P.S. If you need money for webcams in the new shelter, just say the word. As I have offered previously, I will help raise money and I can probably find you a better deal than what you’re getting at present.
