Habeas Chimpus

Originally published by ANewDomain.net:

In a victory for the animal rights movement, two chimpanzees being “unlawfully detained” by a Long Island university animal research lab will get their day in court on May 6th. If a New York State Supreme Court judge rules that their habeas corpus petition is valid, they”ll be released.

Meanwhile, more than 100 Gitmo detainees are still waiting for their habeas corpus rights to be charged or released.

  1. Animals are cute, trendy people will donate million to save and then turn around and not lift a finger to help the homeless. The homeless must be defective…never mind some are veterans, some used to have middle class jobs, some need mental services they are all now urban blight that is ignored until it is time to cut the budget on social services again. Imagine the monkeys being set free but without services they are arrested for stealing fruit and sentenced to ten years in prison.

      • It’s a little like we have enough domestic problems that we shouldn’t be prioritizing foreign conflicts.

    • Globally, there might be millions of chimps. On this same planet, there are functionally billions of human homeless. Earth’s .01% richest primates prioritize which populations they have to spend the least amount of money on.
