This is a petition on Change.org. The title says it all, really and I have quoted a small section of the petitioner’s post on the change.org website….
Kristen Lindsey has already lost her job and the Texas Board of Veterinary Medical Examiners has opened an investigation. We believe the actions of Kristen Lindsey show a disregard for her oath and should disqualify her from being able to practice veterinary medicine. Please sign our petition asking for the Texas Board of Veterinary Medical Examiners to revoke her license.
You might like to join in; the link is at the base of this page. I expect almost all cat owners who surf the internet have heard about Kristen Lindsey by now. If you are unsure you can click on this link to see a series of articles on this shockingly sad tale.
The only caveat I have at this stage is to ask, “is the petition too early?” Don’t get me wrong, I am as horrified as anyone else at the alleged cruel and callous behavior of this now notorious veterinarian but….at present the evidence we have is a picture and her written admission. Excellent evidence, yes. Almost conclusive but not quite watertight as yet.
It is just possible that the picture is fabricated and the whole thing is a scam.I agree that it is highly unlikely but stranger things have happened.
We all know the old adage: innocent ’til proven guilty. She is yet to be proven guilty in a court of law.
I am sure a lot people will think I am being silly and over cautious. If people do I’ll accept it. I believe that we have to do this sort of thing by the book.
There has been a lot of hype surrounding Lindsey. I have joined it. It is all understandable. Her behavior has shocked America and the international community. A billion web surfers have been stunned.
However, there is a possibility that she won’t stand trial. In fact is probably quite likely. She may not be proved guilty. If that happens then what do we do? We start a petition for her to be charged and tried in the usual way.
