In a story in today’s Saratogian, Saratoga County DA Jim “noballs” Murphy says despite that the fact that serial convicted horse-abuser Ann Arnold has an order not to keep horses and has been re-arrested for keeping horses she still, get this ”gets to keep horses” HERE
Back in November, the Greenfield judge who sentenced her to not own horses, called the police to report she had 17 horses on her farm. Now any reasonable person would see this as a violation of probation and contempt of court. She was re-arrested but released where she went back home to continue to flaunt the judge’s order and abuse horses.
Murphy said Wednesday to the Saratogian that despite the pending charge and the alleged violation of probation, his office has no jurisdiction over the horses.
“There is no allegation these horses are being mistreated,” Murphy said,
To his credit Greenfield Town Supervisor Richard Rowland spoke up and said
“It’s something that has gone horribly, horribly wrong and the town wants to do something to fix it,”
Though the horses are being given hay, he said they still have no shelter and are still in conditions that are “unsustainable.”
“The property is not proper for horses. It is not like it’s eight acres of rolling pasture, it’s eight acres of rock and muck,”
Rowland said Arnold is also in violation of several town codes relating to the property and town officials are “seeing where we can go.”
I give Rowland credit for that. So while Saratoga County DA Jim “noballs” Murphy sits back and waits horses are left freezing in a rocky, muddy field that will soon turn to ice. No shelter,no where to get out of the wind. No confront and no kindness. I wonder if our society is so wrapped up in its own self-interest that we forget about kindness and decency.
So for now the horses suffer. The halfwit Arnold can continue to watch with sadistic pleasure the suffering. A Greenfield Judge who did the right thing is rendered impotent by a “noballs” DA.The cruel and sadistic Arnold is due back in Moreau Town Court Feb. 25. Her case was transferred there because the Greenfield Town Justice recused himself, since he was the person to call in Arnold’s alleged violation of probation.
I will be there.
Saratoga in Decline
We never Sleep
Because it’s a cruel world
