Enraged devil dog lover locks on to Reg photo team
'Staffys are not devils... I've seen them sharing crisps with babies!'
Double FoTW Our photographer's unprecedented access to the world's trouble spots and glamorous events has been a big hit with Reg readers in recent weeks.
Not everyone's happy at seeing reality in such vivid clarity for the first time. Enter left of shot commenter Anthony to dish out his own brand of justice in the wake of our world exclusive documentary still of the satanic canine firing squad session on the mean streets of Saaaaarf London:
this bloke is such an idiot, go and educate yourself before exposing the public to this utter bulls**t, where are your morals, working in the media you influence people stopping them from making their own desicions, maybe your job is important to you but this country is more important to the british people, its people like you repeating crap through media outlets that have f***ed this country up so much, have us all in fear and wll soon have the electronic ball and chain attached to us.
staffys are not devils or satanic dogs you nob, they are the same as any other person or animal on the planet, its how they are brought up, grow a brain before you try to influence people you should be executed.
It's all there: the complete lack of capitalisation, the acrobatic logical leaps, the dodgy spelling, the 100-word sentence, and of course the call for Mr Haines to pay the ultimate price for his transgression -that is the hallmark of a truly great FoTW. Bravo.
But Anthony wasn't finished. Like a rabid bull terrier in need of a good tasering he took a bite at our original news story on the devil dog incident too:
This is terrible, i am so disapointed in the way reg has reported this, nothing todo with the dog at all its how they are brought up , and probably becaise it was being threatened by those peices of **** that are slowly policing us into Nazi germany, give up you guns, give up your knives, give up your dogs , bow down let me serach you , keep notes on you lock you up without reason, insert a microchip in you, the police and media are crippling this country in front of our eyes and we do nothing be bring it on quicker by accepting such ****
Staffy's (the nanny dog) rae the most lovng and gentle dog ever, they have such a good nature, i have seen staffys sharing crisps with babies before they are so gentle, they are so emotional this report is disgusting, i hope the wrter and those barbaric homeland security operatives are executed themselves (at least they will have done something to deserve it)
I feel for the dog and the owner and hope their energy is passed forth to more good.
Well Anthony, you don't have to tell us thrice. You'll be glad to hear that Lester will indeed be executed in true police state style, and his ginormous media salary used to set up the Devil Dog Memorial Canine Retirement Home and Country Club, Croydon, where local babies will happily share reminisces with Alsatians over a nice bag of cheese and onion. ®
