— Four men have been charged after Moore County authorities broke up a cockfight.

Deputies found evidence of a cockfight at 667 Alex Road last Friday, including spurs and fighting accessories. They saw several men running into the woods as they arrived at the residence, authorities said.

Two dead chickens and two badly injured chickens were at the residence, and Moore County animal control officers were called to the scene to assist with the investigation, authorities said.

The following men have been charged with one count each of felony cockfighting and four counts each of felony cruelty to animals: Jorge Huerta Balderas, 36, of 667 Alex Road, Alfonso Garcia, 33, of 667 Alex Road, Martin Vera Bocanegra, 39, of Lot 11 Sunset Mobile Home Park in Robbins, and Luis Miguel Vilchis-Hernandez, 22, of 499 Lemonds Drive in Candor.

    WRAL is ran by liberals that cater to illegal residents of the US. They are just another liberal fear machine that wants to extend citizenship to all the criminals in the US.

    And yet here again, is another prime reason the "mexican" heritage is detrimental to our society.

    Don't be a sodomising liberal WRAL.

    Okay everyone....watch out. JustDontUnderstandPpl got revoked. They now have a "silent" person auditing all comments, ready to revoke you. They may revoke me too but here's a thumbed nose to you, WRAL, for allowing people like Sunday sailor to make all of his comments but not other people. Just goes to show how liberal and prejudiced you are.

    "Sigil and Historians 5th...you two are hilarious!!! Haven't seen any disrespected angels today; did he ever answer the question re: does he work for WRAL? "

    Thank you, I have my occational moments {:*) I doubt he(?) works for WRAL, they probably don't allow their employees to post.

    Oh, and on the free speech thing. The constitution of our great nation only guarantees that the government can't censor you (unless, of course, you protest government policy or otherwise say somthing they don't like). It doesn't prevent WRAL from pulling your posts. But they have to walk a fine line. If they take out anything that isn't "white bread" boring, they won't have anybody visiting their web site and they won't be able to charge their webvertisers as much money. But if they leave up everything we post, some sensitive individual will probably sue them.
