What time is the press conference next Wed., May 30th?

Many officers of the LASD and LAPD have proven to be very insensitive. I sometimes wonder how they got that way. Both units need better training and an entire makeover in general. 
I have had 2 insulting and threatening incidences, which happened to me - one by LAPD the other by LASD. I would like to share these with you:

Any idea why the dart didn't work? Why was euthanasia the only option? The photo of the mountain lion looks so peaceful, curled up like a cat and resting in the courtyard. Not ready to attack. Apparently the same thing happened a month ago. I live in a remote area of the Santa Monica Mountains and haven't seen a mountain lion yet. Strange that they're walking into buildings downtown...Should we organize a protest?

Signed.  They need to refine and perfect the effectiveness of those darts so this NEVER HAPPENS AGAIN!

Dear UAALA members,

Please sign the petition to stop lethal force against wildlife such as the killing of a baby mountain lion which occurred in Santa Monica two days ago:  http://www.thepetitionsite.com/425/508/056/stop-the-lethal-force-by-city-officials-against-our-wildlife-animals/?cid=FB_TAF_new1 

Also, below is a message from a concerned person from Belgium regarding the shooting of the baby mountain lion which occurred and urging us to stage a protest. Does anyone have an interest is pursuing this?

For the animals,

Baby Mountain Lion Shot And Killed In Downtown Santa Monica

Hello,

I subscribed to this group only to ask that I hope you guys will be striking in front of the police station regarding the killing of a Baby Mountain Lion in downtain Santa Monica. We read the news in Belgium and we are extremely horrified by it! It is not the first time this happens in the US. Killing innocent wild animals instead of anesthetizing it. Maybe those cops need a training in watching National Geographic how to anesthetize a wild animal. It's really pathetic and disgusting. We don't have any words for it. Especially that the animal wasn't attacking anybody and probably was more afraid of them then vica versa. I mean, have you seen the pictures. They almost arrived with a whole god damn army for a BABY Lion. What would have been the case with a Adult Lion? The Army??? I hope you will live up to your titel of United Animal Advocates and go strike in front of the police station and force them to apologize to having done that and forcing them that they take courses in how to anesthetize a wild animal to prevent things like that in the future. It's not only Belgium, but whole Europe who is fed up reading stuff like this coming from the states. We are freaking 2012 not 1900! All this technology for what. Just because some freaking cop machos wanna test their new guns. I am going to stop this because it's making me sick. We would strike here and elsewhere in Europe. I hope to read in the coming days in the newspapers that you went striking against this.

Keep up the good job. Glad to read that you guys have already 326 Animal Rights Activists!

Best regards and best of luck.
