Cecil The Lion Hunter

Quote:
The White House will review online petition calling for #CecilTheLion hunter to face justice.

The White House has said it will review a petition urging the Obama administration to send the US hunter who killed Cecil the lion to Zimbabwe to face justice.

More than 140,000 signatures have been gathered for the bid to send Minnesota dentist Walter Palmer to the African country.

It urges Secretary of State John Kerry and Attorney General Loretta Lynch to extradite the trophy hunter.

Any petition to the White House that attracts over 100,000 names within 30 days must receive an official response.

White House spokesman Josh Earnest said it is up to the Justice Department to respond to an extradition order.


What do you think? Should he face justice, maybe even execution, for killing a proud creature like a lion?

Yes, he should be extradited.

Actions have consequences and he has to face them.

Execution? No.

A heavy fine, prison sentence and a bar from entering the country where the offense occurred, on the other hand, would be appropriate for him.

Something along the same lines for the people who arranged the trip, too.

Worth noting that at least 5 elephants have been killed by poachers since Cecil was killed, and we hear sod all about them.

I'm sure the U.S. has fought against extraditing their own for worse crimes.

On an aside, every single person that's attacked his dental practice can go f*ck themselves. Their retaliation is affecting the lives of people that work there and had nothing to do with the hunt.

Public hanging for killing a brave Lion which is really symbolic of the brave English lions.

Its practically an act of war on England and the Queen.

Yeah, it isn't the citizens' right to enact their own punishment on the hunter, that is for a court to decide. Anyone who commits a crime in their own personal attempt at bringing him to justice should be arrested and charged themselves.

i'm just amazed at his stupidity really, like why did he think it would be a good idea to kill a lion and not make any effort to hide his identity, surely people will think of him as a brave masculine man! like what century does he think this is?

What's the worst sentence he could get? Cba to read

I'm not entirely against extradition, but justice systems can differ wildly from country to country and if execution were a real possibility then lol no rather let him get away with killing an animal tbh

I'd bet that if he killed someone in Zimbabwe, there wouldn't be this shitstorm. Let's look at Amanda Knox. Due to problems with the case against her, she never wiould have been extradited. The U.S. public was also hugely on her side. But at the end of the day, a person had been killed, and a court case was still ongoing. But did people wish her family cancer? Did people organise huge petitions for her to be extradited in order to ensure correct justice for Meredith Kercher and Amanda Knox? I certainly don't remember any. But someone goes and shoots a lion, he's suddenly the absolute devil, even though he hasn't been tried. If he gets extradited, every potential criminal should be as well.

EDIT: Just to be clear, I do think it is beyond shit that this lion has been poached.

No, he shouldn't be extradited. Zimbabwe has a corrupt despotic government, and they do far worse things to these animals than this dentist idiot.

These public witch hunts are embarrassing.
