6 Women Gang-Raped by Man Tied to Chair

That’s how inaccurate  
naming some gangs  
really is
 
Imagine puppy and  
cat slayers
 
Called
“puppy lives matter”
 
...opposite to truth

if someone refused to  
acknowledge it
 
while believing

in humane  
pet treatment?
 
How much media  
confusion
could it cause?

Wow I guess manipulation inspires similar themes, I"m not the only one that went with the puppet metaphor and fish bait reference, but I assure you it is purely coincidence I didn't see what others posted till I posted mine, I guess great minds think alike as they say, lol
