People need to speak out on behalf of animals who have been abused
The abuse of animals has to be committed by the lowest form of human life. I’m writing this asking people to be a voice for these animals that are tortured and abused, and to let your voice be heard.
Especially in the case which will be in front of Circuit Judge Timothy Sheldon on May 31 regarding the cruelty of animals by 43-year-old Phillip Rinn from Aurora. In 1993, he chained his dog to the back end of his car and drove around dragging this poor animal, and then he unchained it and drove over this dog to make sure that it was dead. I’m hoping that you will find this hard to get this picture out of your mind as I have. Then in 2010, he was charged with beating yet another dog!
We all need to be a voice for these horrific acts of cruelty toward these animals, so please contact Kane County State’s Attorney Joe McMahon at 630-232-3500 or email him email@example.com, and ask for justice in this case on behalf of these animals.
I’d also like to mention that dog fighting is a felony! Dogs are beaten and abused in training them for dog fights. They spend their short lives caged with minimal human care. The injuries sustained in these fights are severe and fatal. Dogs who may survive die of extreme suffering. If you suspect dog fights or animal abuse, call and report it.
Finally, if you would like more information or are interested in joining our “Animal Abuser Squad” in taking them down, you can go to: http://kittykat911.bbnow.org, where we will be posting a list of all recent animal abusers who have been charged with cruelty to animals.
Thanks for your support.
Grateful for help of lawmaker, attorney general in fighting scams vs. seniors
I’d like to thank state Rep. Keith Farnham and Hanover Township for their effort in bringing Attorney General Lisa Madigan’s office to Elgin to provide assistance and resources to our community.
As an older Elgin resident, I often hear about scams that target unsuspecting seniors and try to bilk them out of their hard-earned money.
While we must remain vigilant against these frauds, it is reassuring to know that the attorney general is proactive in fighting these criminal schemes and puts such a focus on educating Illinois residents about how they can protect themselves.
I thank Farnham and Madigan for all their hard work in protecting our community.
