"Two Men Arrested in Cow Shooting"

2 men arrested in cow shooting - The Westerly Sun: News


NORTH STONINGTON Connecticut — Two of three suspects in the Palmer Farm cow shooting were arrested Tuesday. Max R. Urso, 18, of North Stonington was charged with reckless endangerment, first-degree criminal mischief, cruelty to animals, unlawful discharge of a firearm, carrying a loaded firearm in a vehicle, discharging a firearm from a public highway, and conspiracy to commit the crime. The cruelty statute carries a maximum sentence of five years in jail and a $5,000 fine. Henry A. Williamson, 20, of Pawcatuck, was charged with hindering prosecution and making a false statement. Police believe the three men were in Williamson’s vehicle when they shot the cows. State police made two arrests in the case, but the man they say actually pulled the trigger of the 30-06 hunting rifle, 23-year-old Todd A. Caswell, was still at large as of Wednesday evening.

After the shooting, State Rep. Diana Urban, D-North Stonington, known as a champion of animals, established "The Angel Fund" at Chelsea Groton Bank to raise money for the Palmer family. More than $3,500 has been raised. Farmer George Palmer told state police the replacement cost of the cow is $1,500, veterinary fees were $139 and it cost approximately $200 in labor to care for and move the injured cows.

Comment..... Did you ever find yourself at a loss for words? I mean I could call these three cowards bad names. I could wish evil things on them. I could say that I wish they dream of calf's crying every time they try to sleep for the rest of their lives. Classic High School bullies is all I can come up with. They deserve everything the Connecticut court system imposes on them. I hope the stigma of what they did stays with them all their lives. I hope every time they try to get a job, this felony pops up somewhere on their job application. I also think the parents of these three monsters should pay for all the damage and suffering done to the Palmer family and son Asa...

I agree with you L.J.! Anyone that is cruel should pay for it for the rest of time! There is no excuse for cruelty, of any kind, in my opinion!!! Thanks for sharing, Sure hope they catch the other creepy kid!!!

Wow, is this how bored our young adults are, or maybe how non-compassionate they'be become. I have to say that I truly believe that there should be work houses again. People should not be able to get away with the kind of stuff without paying and in a way where they suffer themselves. I don't mean torture or anything, but put them to hard labor to pay back what they have taken. They should be locked up and have to go every day to this mans farm and repay everything that they basically have stolen from him. What is wrong with society today that people think that it's a joke to take someone else's livelihood away.

Thought provoking post L.J.
