    i guess it depends on if it was causing problems or not
    raccoons are a trip and while they are for sure pests at times i don't think i would toss it off the boat to drown
    if anything i'd kill it and then toss it in the water
    with all the rats and things i lay waste to where i live i still have compassion for the life
    had so many babies at one point in my moms garage i had to lay out the glue traps which are awful
    i'd go back and check them all the time and kill the stuck ones w the pellet gun
    one time i had two babies caught in one trap and after i shot the first one the other screamed a cry of holy terror i'll never forget
    took me a moment to load again and the whole time this thing was crying out
    pretty tough to say that small animals don't feel terror and that raccoon could have likely been handled different since it was terrified
    throwing it in the ocean to die is fucked up imo
    and i'm a killer of animals i just think all living things deserve some dignity
    and racoons are badass, ever have a stare down w one?

    They sounded like mooks but here's the thing - if they had a pistol then yes, kill it and toss it overboard. Otherwise, that animal can't be caged 20 miles out to sea, and leaving it to bite you or others isn't an option.

    The fact that they filmed it was bullshit. Cap it or hold it under water with the gaffe and drown it ... but I had run ins with raccoons in Denver. Those varmints are pushier than AOC on climate change. Seriously ... I'd prefer opossums or feral cats aboard ship to a coon.

    Not a Jack Daniels fan, but love their choice of music in their latest ad. One of the great riffs ever.

    discrimination?
    maybe they just weren't as good as the white strippers
    racist



    Jury awards $3M to black strippers in discrimination case

    by Emily Wagster Pettus | Associated Press — 18 May 2019

    JACKSON, Miss. (AP) — A Mississippi jury has awarded a total of more than $3 million to five African American strippers after a federal judge found the women worked under worse conditions than their white colleagues.

    U.S. District Judge Henry T. Wingate ruled in the discrimination case last year. After a trial that lasted nearly a week on the question of damages, jurors decided Wednesday that the women would split $3.3 million for back pay and past and future suffering.

    The attorney for Danny's Downtown Cabaret, Bill Walter, said Friday he will ask Wingate to reduce the award. If Wingate disagrees, Walter said he will appeal.

    "Obviously, the client is disappointed in the verdict," Walter said.

    The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission sued Danny's years ago, saying the Jackson club limited when black women could work and fined them $25 if they didn't show up for a shift. The commission said white strippers had flexible schedules at the club and were not subjected to fines for missing work.

    It also said a Danny's manager used racial slurs against a black dancer, and Danny's owners forced black women to work at another Jackson club they owned called Black Diamonds, where conditions and security were worse and dancers were paid less.

    Marsha Rucker, the EEOC's regional attorney in Birmingham, Alabama, said in a statement that the commission "will protect employees in any industry who are subjected to such blatant and repeated discrimination."

    "This case shows the EEOC will sue any employer, operating any type of business, who violates federal anti-discrimination laws, especially those who will not stop discriminating even after being given repeated chances to do so," Rucker said. "The jury ... sent a powerful message to Danny's and any employer who thinks they are above the law."

    why anyone would want to go into business at all anymore is hard to understand
    at least w aspirations of actually building something
    too many ways to take you down
    surprised fat women haven't figured out they can sue strip clubs
    earners get prime time period

    It is not about building a profit generating business anymore.
    It is about building a production generating business that provides sufficient profit while mitigating most risk.
