Torture for Fun and Profit?

There has been a lot of talk about torture recently. Questions have been raised: Is torture ever justified? How far is too far? With the change in administrations, our national policies towards the treatment of prisoners have changed. And the practices of the former administration have come under renewed scrutiny.

In the midst of all of this, it has come to my attention that a New England company is manufacturing and marketing to private citizens a torture device so vile, so diabolical, that it needs to be brought to light.

Warning: the images on these videos are graphically funny and disturbingly amusing.

Did you hear the demented laughter of the torturer! This is not right! These squirrels are not even being questioned. They have no information to disclose. This is torture purely for the amusement of the sick torturer!

This is much, much worse than waterboarding!

I’m calling for congressional hearings into this travesty. All Yankee Flippers and their ilk should be removed from every backyard where they have been placed. This company needs to be shut down, and its executives jailed. Reparations should be paid, in bird seed, to all squirrels, and their families, who have suffered as a result of the illegal and immoral acts of the Droll Yankees Corporation.
