On November 14 the body of a gay 19 year old was found a few miles away from the town in which he was residing in called Caguas. He was a very well known person in the gay community of Puerto Rico, and very loved. He was found on the site of an isolated road in the city of Cayey, he was partially burned, decapitated, and dismembered, both arms, both legs, and the torso."

(The sound of screaming piglets in the video made my skin crawl.) Their squealing mothers are shown scrambling to escape workers who slam spiked mallets into the animals' sides. Many pigs bear sores from their constant confinement—one mother pig suffered an excruciating prolapsed rectum for at least 13 days before she was killed."

The whole thing's been ridiculous."

More disturbing than usual, but the last video is hilarious!

Garçon Stupide said...

Eric and Dusty... I didn't realise at the time but there really were a lot of really horrific stories this week. And that was without including Jason Mattison Jnr, who I covered separately earlier in the week, and had me quite literally in tears as I was writing.

Two stories REALLY stuck with me this week: the killing of Jorge Steven Lopez Mercado and that father killing his son...
