The Faces of Evil

images-14






images-13There is a video making the rounds on the internet this week of Tim Sappington shooting a horse for no other purpose than to intimidate “activists.” Sappington is the only paid employee of Valley Meat, the proposed horse slaughter plant trying to open in Roswell, NM. Bloomberg recently gave him his 15 minutes of fame by including his horse eating habits in a story that was picked up in several newspapers. In cold disregard for life, he leads a very healthy horse to a place in front of his single wide trailer, pets it on the forehead, then, while cursing about activists, takes his gun out and shoots it.

You do not want to see the video. It is far too graphic and far too violent. It has value as an educational tool for those in the mental health field in the study of sociopathic behavior (currently called “antisocial personality disorder”) and for one other specific purpose – for it displays the typical personality of those involved in the horse slaughter trade. These same personalities crowd into every horse auction and every slaughterhouse, deriving their pleasure from killing and watching other kill horses.

If you believe the lies about “unwanted” horses, “starving” horses, about “peaceful euthanasia,” then yes, you need to watch it. If you think sending your horse off to the slaughterhouse is really the way you want to discharge your responsibility for the animal you bought, then yes, you should watch it. This is the type of man to whom you are turning your horse over. If equine slaughterhouses once again open in American – this man will win.

Back during the years of Dallas Crown, I drove through the streets of Kaufman, TX. I followed the trucks, watched them unload horses, watched them beat, kick and kill horses and watched the skins of horses that were alive just minutes before, flop off the conveyor belt into a dumpster. Nothing will ever erase those memories, nor take away the memory of the pure evil that those people carried with them in every step they took.

If you are one of those who make comments like, “Stop this,” know that I am trying, but it is YOU that has to stop it. Don’t think that I and a few others can do it without your help. YOU have to put in the effort to pick up the phone, to send the email, to protest and support those that are fighting beside you. Don’t think you can just close your eyes and post the occasional comment. To “Stop this,” YOU have to get involved. Make the calls to your Senators and Representatives. On RT’s blog is a list of email addresses and phone numbers to those who need to be made aware that this incident arouses the anger of every mentally healthy American.

BREAKING NEWS: A Statement From Valley Meat

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

VALLEY MEAT COMPANY, LLC – For further information contact A. Blair Dunn, Esq. at abdunn@ablairdunn-esq.com

Valley Meat Co. does confirm that Mr. Sappington does work doing maintenance for Valley. We have seen the video showing Mr. Sappington euthanizing a horse for slaughter which we understood he did as was his legal right for his own consumption and in which he did complete the processing for consumption. We agree that his comments were regrettably crass, not contributing anything to this dialogue so we do not condone his statements, but he was within his lawful rights to slaughter and butcher a horse and he was not acting as an employee of the company in that action. The emotion of the situation is what is most troubling especially since the opposition is now resorting to terrorist tactics by calling in bomb threats and death threats against our families. And while Mr. Sappington’s personal comments are inappropriate they pale in comparison to threatening to bomb people and kill their families. We respectfully request that the media and the public remember that we are discussing the processing of horses as livestock and no animal is worth threatening or ending a person’s life.

    As a former mental health professional, I concur that the man killing this horse and cursing animal activists is displaying the behaviors typical of a sociopath. He likely has narcissistic personality disorder as well. People who treat animals with such cold disregard are known to treat humans the same way. I pity those related and associated with such a heartless soul.

      I too am a mental healthcare worker, currently working in a maximum security prison. I see sociopaths everyday, all day. It is people with personality disorders like this that will be seeking employment at Valley Meat and other slaughterhouses. As a business owner I would not want the likes of such people working for me. They have NO MORAL COMPASS!! They DO NOT HAVE FEELINGS!!! They HAVE NO CONSCIENCE! Therefore they commit crimes against people & animals that are violent in nature and have no remorse whatsoever. These people CANNOT FEEL! They perform acts of cruelty in an attempt to feel, this is their form of entertainment!! I see this firsthand everyday. Why on Earth would a bussiness hire someone like this, knowing that such acts of cruelty are being performed outside of their establishment and to innocents, human and otherwise? To the community that will house this business: Be forewarned!Know where your children and pets are at all times!!

        I for one would not like to be around him or any other like him, live near him no and my pets would be in unless I was home, I had a sick o that fed my arab gelding some thing and he died a week later and lots of money was spent to save him. I know first hand what sick people can do.

    EXCUSE ME VALLEY MEATS! I DID NOT CALL YOUR PLANT! I NEVER MADE A THREAT AGAINST YOUR BUSINESS OR ANY PERSON!

    Your employee committed a hate crime. He should be brought up on Federal charges and rightfully terminated. His actions are a deterrent to your business. Do you really want employees with so little oral compass working for you?

    I hope authorities bring this man up n charges and he rots behind bars for a long time to come. If not for killing his horse but for the fact that by his comments “activists” conceivably could be in danger.

    WARNING! IF YOU HAVE NOT SEEN THIS VIDEO DON’T WATCH! I’M STILL SHAKING AND QUITE UNSETTLED. PLEASE DON’T WATCH THIS VIDEO. LET OFFICIALS DO THAT. IT IS EXTREMELY GRAPHIC.

      Valley Meat’s statement just proves what an arrogant bunch of pricks they are.

  • that is exactly howlittlemindet the trash was that worked for the slaughterhouses while they where killing horses at dallas crown and beltx. allso… perfectly healthy , sweet horses would die. i think its sad that someone wants to vorbid threats against the man or about his behavior, when he is the worst and most violent and can schuff a tape like that on us…

      I will not give a sociopathic moron the pleasure of watching his sadistic act, and as for your company condoning … Yes condoning …. Such brutality …may you and your company live in Hell

      March 21, 2013
  • As horible and graphic as the video, and as much as this person is representative of the people that crowded this industry in Kaufman Texas, this horse suffered much less and at least got a pat on the head, before he died. Slaughter is what we are fighting…and it is much worse… Contact your Senators to co-sign and support the SAFE Act S541 and your Representative to do the same for HR1094 . Maybe send them this video if you can.. Make a call. write a letter through POPVOX, and post on their FB page and Tweet to them.. Then most important: Reach out to your friends and acquaintances. Most likely they are in the 80%. We desperately need more than the advocates to act. I am offering to do it for them…

  • I also disagree with Valley Meat. Don’t insult our intelligence to make it sound like this man shot this horse just to fill his freezer. That wasn’t his point at all. He did it to make a statement which he did, very clearly. He did it to start a bigger fight and his callus and heartless and meanness validates a lot of public opinion about the mentally and egotistical attitudes of people who take pride in slaughtering helpless animals. I saw this again in a Russian video available on youtube of horses being beat to death with sledge hammers. The men were worked up in a frenzy, like it was a competition. There are too many videos displaying this heartless attitude with slaughtering animals. For Valley Meat to in anyway condone this man’s behavior again shows how acceptable this behavior is to you. This man has contributed to a war and should have expected to evoke anger and retaliation in people who have even an ounce of compassion for horses, or other animals for that matter.

    March 21, 2013
  • How many people do any of you know that butcher their own animals, but tape it, post it on YouTube, and make insulting and challenging comments to a certain group of people? (animal activists) NONE, that I know of do!!! This mans motives had nothing to do with butchering a horse for his own consumption, as much as it had to do with taunting and trying to intimidate us animal activists. This is EXACTLY the kind of people that are employed at slaughter plants. CRUEL. CALLOUS. HATEFUL! He not only disrespected people…he also disrespected the very animal that he killed.

  • Jane Kartes

    These are the type of people that run slaughterhouses and one more reason to never allow them to reopen in the U.S. Europe has banned U.S. horsemeat so what is the point anyway! It is not humane to slaughter horses for no purpose other than the idiots like Sappington who get their kicks from this. Hopefully he rots in jail and then in Hell with the rest of the horse slaughter trash!

  • Cindy Cardy

    If this conpany is so concernec about negativity directed towards them aand their families than why do they continue to employ this sociopath . If anybody else committed such a horrific act with intent to anger the public who has compassion then they would most likely be terminated from their employment. I would never threaten families nor would I or any other sane person kill a sweet trusting animal with the intention to demonstrate hate. Perhaps karma will play hete and all the bute this monster is ingesting will manifest in a not so healthy existence for him. I mean unhealthy physical to combine with g is unhealthy mental state..

    Valley Meat-if this is your representation of employee behavior, what goes on in the plant where no one can see. Patty Whiting said all and more, and I’m sure that there are alot of reprocussions that your business and family will feel after more of the public wakes up to the senseless behavior your ONLY paid employee displayed. What do you really expect? And then to throw in the concept of wanting to openly submit for the right to do this on a daily basis. REALLY. May God NOT have pity on your souls when you ROT IN HELL>

    I watched the video. At first I wasn’t going to, but I did. I was so stunned I couldn’t even cry. It was not until I prayed and asked God, in Jesus’ Name, to send His wrath down upon this man. I agree with the former therapist. He is a sociopath. He exibits all the symptoms. Showing kindness towards the horse at first, then just shooting it. I had a feeling he consumed the horse based on his display of butchering tools he proudly had positioned on a butchering table in one of his pictures, meat hook included. I am thoroughly sick to my stomach. And these are the personality types that will be immediatly hired by slaughterhouses. Sociopaths. May God help us all, and grant eternal refuge to all the horses that will die at the hands of these monsters.

  • Kathryn Ireland

    While I know it’s not a crime to kill and eat your own horse, that is your choice, but I certainly feel that killing that young, healthy colt,as it appeared,was done with malicious intent. It did show however, the type of horses that end up at slaughter, the young,healthy ones and not the sick,old, neglected ones they would like everyone to believe.The video also showed the type of person that will be haunting the neighborhoods at Roswell. Sorry Del la Santos is now being harassed and made to appear the victim, but when you open your doors to sociopaths and dance with the devil, seriously, what can you expect. He knows this despicable industry is thwart with sleaze and crime, good grief, he hasn’t even gone into operation yet and he’s already getting threats.Please people , let the authorities deal with this, two wrongs don’t make a right. Maybe Santos can find someone nice to employ…LOL.

    It was so hard to see this sweet, trusting horse all of a sudden his life was just snatched away and the horse trusted the man who led him and then shot him. The image is haunting of the sight of this horse. This is so appalling of any person to deliberately for no reason to kill in cold blood. This is one reason why I don’t want horses to be slaughtered in the United States again. I was rather proud in the fact that we stopped in int 2007 and were above the idea of slaughtering our lovely horses. We need more compassion for our animals here. I know that they truely feel and love just like humans.

    There is no need to threaten violence to Valley Meat and its employees. The Lord God, Creator of these very special animals, will curse them and their families for generations in their evil deeds. What they do to these poor horses will come back upon them and their families sevenfold. The Lord will return upon a white horse at the end of time, and will cast these workers of death into the lake of fire.

    March 21, 2013
  • God have mercy on this man, as he does know what he was doing. And so do the Valley Meat people. They are not ignorant of the dangers of horsemeat, of how the majority of Americans do not view horses as livestock. They are very responsible for having the greedy minds that we see all over the world, that enjoy evil things, and it is totally wrong to allow these kinds of people to enjoy money off the beloved animals that people carelessly haul them off to face evil!!! I will make the calls and send the emails and the faxes. I’ve seen slaughter plants in action, the stench of the blood coming from the kill floor, running into the sewer drains. And the terror of the horses as they come off the trucks into the pens. It has to be stopped!

  • Robynne Catheron

    Did I read that right, did Valley Meat really call that euthanasia? Lord, help us. What has become of the human race? I don’t understand how some people can be so evil, while others are so loving and giving that they spend hours each day trying to stop these horrors, and still others who clearly have their heads stuck in the sand

  • Marcia

    Just reinforces my belief that people who make a living killing animals have some kind of character defect.

    Why, I wonder, would he not be arrested as a terrorist for killing to intimidate activists. After all, there are proposed laws that would label people terrorists for protesting/disrupting businesses that abuse animals.

    I suppose the chance of his being prosecuted for what he did to the poor horse is zero. I won’t make any threats but just hope he gets what he deserves. Sometimes fate catches up with people from the consequences of their own bad deeds.

    As for the video, awful videos have a place. They show people what simple writing cannot–the true horror of violence and abuse. That is why there are ag-gag laws now to punish whistleblowers for revealing the horrors of factory farming. Sad that those trying to help are the very ones facing fines and jail time.

      Sorry to say this, this may open eyes more to how these people really are they are unfeeling, heart less, nasty,evil….a lot of our problem is our government who are tired of feeding the wild horses they round up, they want a way to get rid of them, they should of be left in the wild, nature took care of them the strong lived and the weak died. Our government wants this slaughter house to happen, they slide things in to other bills and pass them quickly, we the people have been dooped for years. Get to our government and raise hell…This is where the hang up is right now, if washington wanted it stopped, it would be stopped. Call write them, bug them….

    Talk about stirring the shit, he certainly did. That the Valley Meat lawyer had to come and make a statement just shows how much this has upset people.

How do you think those horses are going in the building and smelling the smells and seeing strange things, and in iron boxes…..Your a lot sick to do this to animals, be afraid for a while see how it feels. The shoe is on your feet now.

    I have contacted by legislators, and received very heartfelt assurances from them all, that they will support the SAFE Act S541 and HR1094(should it ever come to floor)
    However, I totally disagree with A. Blair Dunn, Esq, or whomever wrote that release. My dear 15 year old dog’s life is much more valuable that that sub-human that made the crush film. I can certainly understand why Simpleton generated threats, as he made that film as a terrorist threat aimed at animal advocates. I’m sure that he wasn’t surprised or disappointed that it caused an uproar.

    I viewed an edited version of this sick and sad video earlier today. The “F” word was bleeped as he cursed Animal Advocates, and this version of the video then fogged over the horse just before being she was shot in the head. I, like so many of us, have been sick about it all day. I thought to comment after viewing the video but was unable to find words. You penned it correctly Jerry, Evil. There is no other word for it. Darkness at it’s clearest, pure Evil.

    Sorry, not good enough for me to “wait for God” to deal with him. What he did was animal cruelty, pure and simple, and his feeble attempt to justify it by saying he used it for his own consumption is just a tactic to keep the heat off of him. I for one, am not waiting for divine justice or intervention, I am doing everything I can to bring down the full force of justice on his head. Without threats mind you. I suggest everyone else do the same.

    March 22, 2013

      lets hope the company will have to fire him to take the heat off them, but they are still doing the same thing in a more cruel way for moneybig bucks $$$$$$, it is not right. We need to put the pressure on Washington, that is the key.

      March 22, 2013
  • Daniel Cordero

    Although I wasn’t initially going to comment on this barbaric act, I feel obligued to offer some comments to add a new aspect to this issue:

    It’s evident this man is a sociopath, nobody can contest that. His behaviour is no different from those that 70 years ago killed millions in Europe in the name of racial superiority. It’s in the books, I don’t think I have to provide examples.

    What’s the purpose of this? A professional would tell you this man has a need to feel superior and he satisfies that carrying out these acts; somebody else can explain it better. However, there is more to it.

    Valley Meats’ Santos, together with others credited with filing petitions with USDA for inspectors, claimed they would or even had more than 100 employees, yet this man appears to be the only employee of the shuttered plant and that is being put into question (probably he is just Santos’ “dear buddy”). Where are the 99 others?

    Upon examination, the companies that filed such petitions turned out to be shams: Business addresses matching home addesses of local politician wannabes, company telephones turning out to be personal cell ones of such individuals, etc, etc… and, to crown it all, all indivuals involved turned out to be acquaintances of a single individual: Sue Wallis.

    This man committed this attrocity to taunt and inflame “activists” whom he perceives are preventing his “employer” from opening up. However, the puzzling thing is that there is no such employer. Valley Meats, together with all the recently reported ghosts plants getting ready from Oklahoma to Tennessee, is just a racket: The actual facility has been shut for over a year, there is no EU import permit nor USDA export one, there are no foreign investors, nor customers, no nothing… Nevertheless this fact didn’t prevent Wallis to make the headlines in major news outlets despite being no new whatsoever.

    Sappington, Wallis, Santos and their network of pinchbeck fronts that conform the pro horse slaughter lobby actually thrive on this.

    The purpose is not as much as slaughtering horses in the US as it is to polarize and draw people into confrontation, preferably on a physical framework, in order to rake in from the aforementioned fronts they set up to collect from agribusiness. Said in clearer words: without confrontation, there is no business for Wallis, which doesn’t detract from the fact Sappington and probably all her friends and even Wallis herself are actually clinical sociopaths. If we resort to Hollywood’s extense library of cliches we would find that Clarence Boddicker is a perfect fit for them.

    Morever, we can say that, definitely, Sue Wallis and her circle are nothing but hatred peddlers; people that thrive on evil and confrontation. In this regard they are no different from Qaeda operatives inciting the Sappingtons of the world to commit senseless attrocities.

    They not only commit barbaric acts for the pleasure of their sick minds, they are conning you, they are profiting from it -right before you- and they like it. I think it’s time to crack on this and, as others already pointed out, do not play into their hands: That’s good for their pockets and will only promote this kind of stuff.

    Ahhhhhh yes, drop the “pington” and you have his name right. If Valley Meats hasn’t figured out that the Death & Bomb threats that they are experiencing is a way of people saying they are sick and tired of you and your friends killing horses.

    Do you NOT understand that most people don’t want to see the horses slaughtered, and you have your eyes closed to the possibility.

    I saw the video before it was known to be authentic, and before it was edited. I couldn’t even think, or act, out of despair – I was truly shocked. I do not believe in making threats against the plant’s owners etc,but if what Daniel Cordero says is true, this whole thing is a sham !!! Why can we believe anything put forth by these people? I used to believe the propaganda and hyperbole around slaughter, but this video sums it up–young, healthy trusting horses, not diseased abandoned broken down horses. This man has no empathy, or compassion–nor the people around him. It is not for me to dictate his diet, or tell anyone else what to eat, be it dog, cat, horse , rat, monkey? Solient Green–comes to mind–but I can not condone the cruelty displayed so blatantly.

    This guy is a typical type of employee at horse slaughterhouses. Abuse is the norm.

    Every aspect of horse slaughter is torture, from the shipping to the handling to the killing. Veterinarians that are supposed to
    “inspect” are in on it and let the abuse happen.

    These people are always making false complaints about threats to try to get sympathy. Don’t let them use you.

    De los Santos, the “part owner,” is just another exploiter using our agricultural system to abuse and harm.

    He wants people to thinks he’s a victim, but he is a victimizer.

    I’m also suspicious that Bloomberg is using these criminals to promote horse slaughter business for his hedge fund and foreign investment friends.

    The Goldman Sachs crowd makes money off animal abuse, and they get their friends to promote and protect these abusing businesses.

    Tell Bloomberg he’s a disgrace for colluding with this.

    The Obama administration also, through the USDA, has helped these people. Let Obama know this is not acceptable.

    So Valley Meat is discussing “horses as livestock” and no animal is worth threatening a person’s life. Well, some people don’t regard living beings as stock, live or otherwise. And, no, we can’t threaten or kill the sorry specimen who shot the horse, but we don’t have to respect him just for belonging to the human species, sad as it is to recognize that fact.

    I have to disagree that people that work on slaughter houses are cruel and horrible humans. There are cruel and horrible people in all walks of live. People that work at a slaughter house do so for a job. This guy is NOT the norm for any human being. My family raises livestock for sale and for our own use. We know they are treated humanely and fed well. We do not have what it takes to kill an animal we have raised. I take that back I can clean a chicken. We take our personal meat animals to the local locker. I do not consider them murderers, they perform a function that many of us prefer not to do. It’s easier for everyone to eat meat that comes wrapped on cellphone at the supermarket the animal still had to be killed.
    I have had horses for years and we have enjoyed them immensely. But they are livestock.

    Can anyone help stop the Bucking Horse Sale energy year, held in Miles City, Montana. Decades ago, it was strictly for rodeo stock buyers to find new good bucking horses. Now, for any years, horse owners who either raise horses and can t sell them, even saddle horses, who are no longer ‘earning their keep’, and horse owners who can t afford to keep them anymore and refuse to look for alternative horse friendly answers, all put their horses thru this barbaric event. The horses are whipped into the chutes, they often use twitches on their ears to make them hold still while they cinch up tight the flank cinches. They are bucked out, several during the three days of drunken celebration break legs or necks. They will force a horse with a broken leg to run into the holding pen. This is the far worst part-the horses are bid on by kill buyers in majority. They are shipped to the stockyards. Next they are forced by every cruel means possible to enter cattle trucks(designed for cloven hooves animals). They will travel for days to another state, Canada, or Mexico, with no water or food, falling on each other at every corner, stop, and go, hills, etc. then they arrive at the the place where they will suffer the worst imaginable death, rarely dead, as they are held upside down by a rope on one hind leg, until a killer can bring them a slow death by slitting their throats and letting them slowly bleed to death. This is close to being crucified upside down. God did not create these magnificent animals to come to an end this way. CAN ANYONE HELP ME STOP THIS?
