WPRI: A Massachusetts man is facing charges for allegedly killing a seagull with a rock at a Rhode Island beach. Westerly Police Capt. Shawn Lacey says 19-year-old Michael Holmes, of Pittsfield, was walking on Misquamicut State Beach with friends last week when he picked up a rock and threw it at a seagull, causing it to fall to the beach. The Westerly Sun reports the seagull was pronounced dead by state environmental officials. Lacey says several bystanders confronted Holmes and his friends, resulting in an argument. Lifeguards broke up the fight and called police, who took Holmes into custody.
Is this the new summer “thing” now? Killing seagulls? Because it’s not in the Turtleboy playbook. Usually we see a pretty consistent cycle. In the winter it’s stories about assholes who don’t clear the snow off the top of their car. In the summer it’s supposed to be stories about people living children and dogs in cars while they’re in Wal-Mart. But this summer it seems to be chuds throwing rocks at seagulls who keep making the headlines. What possesses people to do this? When did this become a thing? I know seagulls are nothing more than rats with wings. I get that. But can’t you just shoot them with a water gun or throw sand at them or something? Takes a pretty demented fudgestain to throw a rock at a seagull. Not that I’m losing much sleep over the death of a seagull since they’re a dime a dozen and they’d probably just get eaten by a whale in the long run. But in fairness nature should be allowed to take its course.
Anyway, this appears to be the culprit:
Wasn’t exactly what I was expecting. As a matter of fact when I searched for Michael Holmes from Pittsfield on Facebook, I found this winner with five different Facebook pages:
He is also Michael Holmes from Pittsfield. He has been arrested a million times before. He is exactly what someone who would be inclined to throw rocks at a seagull would look like. And he appears to be the IDEAL chudstuffer to blog about on Turtleboy.
But alas it was the other Michael Holmes from Pittsfield. Although I’d bet good money that 31 year old Michael Holmes would throw rocks at seagulls if he could ever get a ride out of Pittsfield. Just sayin.
