Not For The Squeamish - Goat's Head Left On Doorstep Of Charlie Brown Campaign Office

by: David Dayen

Sun Nov 02, 2008 at 09:00:51 AM PST


This could be the result of a Halloween prank, all the way up to something out of The Godfather.  But the fact that it happened at the beginning of GOTV weekend is very curious.

On Friday night, upon leaving the Charlie Brown for Congress campaign office in Grass Valley, staffers found a severed goat's head on the front step.  I'm putting the pictures on the flip, because they are graphic and disturbing, so please don't open if you don't want to see them.

Who in the world would do something like this?  I don't care if it has nothing to do with the election, although putting it at a Brown campaign office obviously makes a certain connection.  Authorities were involved in the removal and are looking into finding the perpetrator.  If this is politically motivated, it is sad and cruel for someone to involve an innocent farm animal in their personal frustration or anger or derangement.  Hopefully, those responsible will be caught.

Edit by Brian: Photos moved here...

I really hope they catch these people so Doolittle can have some company when he goes to jail.

It's not in the flip on the RSS feed -- there IS no flip.

Couldn't you move it to a separate page?

Ghastly....

I guess it comes of growing up around hunters (0.00 / 0)
but although that was a nasty prank, and much worse if it was meant as a threat, I didn't find the photos all that disturbing.

Anyone who eats meat should be willing to countenance the idea that it means killing an animal, and that in turn means blood and the death of something with a face.


umm .. yeah. i think this is less about countenancing (0.00 / 0)
the killing of an animal and a lot more about the fact that a goat head was left on the doorstep of an office.

There's a Democratic Underground thread on this post here:

Apparently a goat's head is a satanic symbol of some sort...strange.

I think?
