Jail for "hunter"

Post by Bigjobss » 14 Jul 2017, 10:01 am

Fairfax going full Fairfax today:
http://www.theage.com.au/video/video-ne ... 4w2l3.html

Would appear he was going to jail for training his dogs for hunting; but

http://www.theage.com.au/victoria/cobra ... qar9i.html

Seems they forgot to mention they already reported last year that:
"Among Kennedy's offences were aggravated cruelty to a deer, boar, goat and cat. He was also convicted for hunting game without a licence, six counts of theft, three counts of burglary and a number of traffic offences"

Not defending this guy as he has obviously been a naughty boy with questionable morals and ethics, but the misleading and tabloid nature of the video is both hilarious and dissapointing, more fodder for the antis to paint hunters as all being irresponsible rednecks.

Pretty dumb stuff. Not a hunter at all IMO...

What always gets me is the amount of people caught without a game license... They're relatively cheap and quite straightforward to apply for. I'd be quite paranoid without one. Not that this guy was ever hunting by the looks of it...

Same old ignoring the facts for a scandalous headline and a jab at the LAFO community.

Got what he deserved by the sounds of it, which is great to see.

Don't see any references to the guy as a "hunter" in the video or report, which he clearly is not. Failing to link the video to last year's report is a bit misleading but overall I'd say releasing the footage was in the public interest. The guy is a proud criminal and deserves everything he gets.

On a side note, that video reminds me of the "dodgy guy" type reports on Current Affair or Today Tonight. The chaser explained the format pretty well here:

Maybe I am less sensitive than some but nothing in the video (apart from the gate breaking, I mean, how dumb can a man be) is overly offensive to me, just looks like dogs working, ever seen dogs go after pigs or wounded ducks? Much more violent.

My problem with the video is that they show typical hunting scenes and manipulate the edit to evoke an emotional response and imply that these actions lead to the man being convicted, ignoring the multiple other criminal acts.
No it is not an outright "hunters are bad" but it plants a more subtle message into the mind of the viewer.

To me hunting is about a clean kill without pain or fear to your target. Sending a pack of dogs after an animal is not hunting in my book.

You are right, Fairfax and MSM aren't a threat to anyone anymore, they are dying slowly and trying to take as many innocents with them along the way, these days I rate journalists below contracted speed camera operators.

Pretty tame but they did get a quick jab in:
"The case highlights an alarming trend among young men in north-east Victoria and southern NSW, who gloat about the killing on social media."

Nice statement of oppinion here in a 'news' piece, not sure who the author has refferenced so I am assuming that she is alarmed by this oddly geographically specifc 'trend'.
I am equally alarmed by the amount of douchebags taking photos of their lunch and gloating on social media, neither are my thing but hey whatever floats your boat I guess.
