PETA and the cannibal
PETA sent this letter to the sheriff housing Christopher McCuin. Chris is the guy who ate his girlfriend last week. Literally. Read it, it’s hilarious!

Dear Captain Pinkerton:
On behalf of PETA and our more than 1.8 million members and supporters, I am writing to ask that you prevent Christopher Lee McCuin from being involved in any senseless killing while in your prison by providing him with exclusively vegetarian meals.
As you know, McCuin allegedly killed his girlfriend, cut up and boiled parts of her body, and may have consumed parts of her corpse. Tragically, every day in homes and restaurants across the U.S., humans cut up, cook, and devour the corpses of chickens, pigs, fish, and cows. Only in a culture where people routinely kill and eat living, feeling beings would anyone even think to kill and eat a human loved one.
Like humans, animals are made of flesh, blood, and bone. They have the same five senses that we do, and they have the same capacity to experience suffering and fear. And all animals share the desire to live their lives free of pain and to avoid a violent death.
It is up to you to prevent McCuin from contributing to any more suffering and death by placing him on a healthy, humane vegetarian diet.
Please visit the Web site GoVeg.com to see video footage that depicts the cruelty of factory farming and to obtain vegetarian recipes. Vegetarian meals are healthy, cost-efficient, and easy to prepare. They also promote nonviolence, which is something that every prison needs. We also would be happy to help you design meatless meal plans for McCuin—or even the entire prison.
Thank you for your consideration. I look forward to hearing from you.
This guy is serious I think! I’m clueless here. My suggestion is rather than feed McCuin meat for the rest of his life, do society and PETA too a favor and just end that life now and save the cows. Not that I’m a veggie or anything, McCuin just don’t need to be living any more. That’s just more steak for the rest of us.
