Some interesting advice from a hunter written in 1888;
"Shooting is cruel; so are many other things in this world. Don’t make it more cruel than necessary. Shoot humanely. How? First of all learn to shoot. Practice at projected plates, bottles, glass- balls, turnips, or any inanimate thing that moves, before you shoot at living creatures. And then, I implore you, shoot before, not at the latter, unless sitting. Never mind if you miss, don’t wound. By shooting before the object (and you will soon learn how much or how little before it you ought to aim), you will, when you hit It, kill it dead, and so spare suffering to the animal and your own feelings, if you have any. Don’t shoot very long shots at any game; and never, pray never! at hares going straight away from you, unless very close to you, and you can aim at the back of their heads. Broadside, if you shoot well before them you can kill them dead a good way off, but going straight away you are certain only to wound them.
Avoid, humane reader, any cold-blooded experiments, and when there is much doubt, give the poor animal the benefit of it, and forbear to press the torture-dealing trigger.”

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — An Oklahoma City police officer was charged Friday with 16 counts including first-degree rape and sexual battery after being accused of assaulting at least eight women while on patrol.
Daniel Holtzclaw, 27, also faces charges of forcible oral sodomy and indecent exposure. Holtzclaw, a former standout football player in high school and college, was arrested Aug. 21. He remained in custody on a $5 million cash bond Friday, according to jail records.
He is accused of stopping women, who were all black and between the ages of 34 and 58, while on duty in Oklahoma City. Prosecutors allege that he raped two women and either fondled others or forced them to expose themselves, and police said there may be more victims.
