Perhaps the Garden State should switch its nickname to the Barnyard State.
A New Jersey judge has dismissed animal cruelty charges against a cop accused of committing a sex act with young cows, saying a grand jury had no way of knowing whether the animals were “tormented.”
Moorestown police officer Robert Melia, who is currently suspended, allegedly engaged in oral sex acts with five calves in Southampton in 2006.
Since New Jersey currently has no law explicitly banning such an act, prosecutors in Burlington county brought animal cruelty charges against Melia, the Philadelphia Daily News reports.
Judge Morely said it was questionable that Melia’s acts, though “disgusting,” constituted animal cruelty.
Well, I suppose everybody enjoys a good blow-job. (via Glenn Reynolds – thanks…I think!)
