Bruce Friedrich of PETA has the following comment on Rabbi Dr. Levinger's visit to Postville:
The fact that Levinger watched them do it correctly strengthens our case, really: I would bet that none of these animals showed the signs of consciousness that we documented in 1/4 of the animals during our sample. The challenge to Rubashkin is to find someone to say that what we documented is not a problem.
This nonsense is like a serial killer calling you over to his house to watch him not kill people: "See, I'm not killing anyone." Of course they CAN do it right – our point is that they can do it right but didn't – that's why what they did was illegal. A criminal can be law-abiding, but that doesn't exonerate them for their crimes.
