    People have always eaten meat but there wasn't always 7 billion people in the world and if you look at western society now it is not uncommon to have a large-ish portion of meat for each meal. I believe portion sizes in general and especially meat portions have increased notable over the last couple of generations, but I have nothing to back support this and don't feel like putting in the time to research that so feel free to disregard.

    I really don't want to discuss this too much because it is a super complex issue (as most things are despite what the vocal extremists on both side would want to profess), and I wish it was as simple as telling everyone to eat local, ethical, "organic" (I agree with you regarding the wishy-washiness of this term) small-farm produce because that's not realistic for a large segment of the population. The discussion is far more complex I'm sure and not one I can do proper justice whilst at work.

    It's really not uncommon. If you're keeping your catch, the best the fish can expect is a whack to the head to stop it from squirming. Most fish will just get thrown in a net, a cooler, or hooked on a line. You're not keeping them as pets.

    They're just fish. We impale live smaller fish on hooks, to catch bigger fish. Suffocation? Who cares? They're fish.

    Should've thrown the vegans in the water

    And lol @ the completely useless cops. What better way to tell people to take matters into their own hands when being harassed by extremist cucks

    Let's be fair to the cops. They did not have access to the video of the guy stealing the fish and throwing it in the water since that was taken by the activists and uploaded later. The wife of the fisherman only started recording after the fact.

    And more importantly

    ITS FLORIDA

    The cops down there get calls about a man with his penis stuck in an alligators ass while wearing gramdma's undies and shooting wildly on the reg. A bunch of activists walking out of the park and no video evidence at the time is probably low on their priority list.

    It's almost as if cops should be expected to do the bare minimum of investigation into the complaint

    lol... When I was trout fishing with my dad as a kid, he'd whack em solid in the head with rock before putting them in his creel. He'd get mad at me for not hitting them hard enough. Said I wasn't doing them any favors buy being a pussy and lightly tapping them.

    If fishing is violence, I'm basically literally Hitler.

    Should've (discretely, as things were escalating) taken a knife, beheaded and gutted the fish. Then flung it at the protester.

    I haven't fished since I was a kid, but don't a lot of people just put the fish in a bucket after it is caught? I would assume that's how most of the fish go - suffocation.

    That's standard fare for a lot of places

    You could go on my local pier at any time and see people doing exactly that

    When I was a kid I used to stop and watch the fish flopping because I didn't understand what it was lol

    It is. People on Facebook have been posting the statute. The cops were probably afraid of cuck backlash

    Last paragraph was unnecessary mumble jumble used to disguise your insecurities.

    Sit down son. No one gives two fucks about you because this isn't about you.

    Would you force your cat or dog to live on a vegan diet?
    If not, then why would you force others to do so?

    Getting in the way of people feeding themselves is a really great way to get murdered, so I strongly recommend more vegans try to interfere this way

    Man I'm triggered. I fish a little bit and if some stranger threw my fish back in we'd be fighting point blank.

    Bothers me that they had that child approach those people. Children should be left out of encounters like this that can turn ugly. They shouldn't be used to gain sympathy for your side, or put out front to fight for whatever your cause is.

    Shame on those people for bringing along that child.
