I heard the THS had a no-kill policy and that is the main reason a lot of the animals were sick and some dying. I also heard there were way too many cats there for the space and cages available to be able to keep them healthy.

Now suspended again & charged with (IM)personating a peace officer & perjury Does he think he's above the law or something?

If it proves the other guy Mark Beauchamp did tip off the THS prior to the raid ... that's just a shame!
I agree he wasn't too smart to handcuff the guy to his car but if I remember correctly the only reason Tre Smith handcuffed him was because the guy was trying to prevent him from rescuing the Rotti, but it's possible I'm wrong.

As for Mark Beauchamp, if he did what they say, then he wasn't trying to protect the animals, only the people at the THS. How sad

From what I've read and seen on TV about Tre Smith, everything he's done has been for animals, even while he was impersonating a peace officer. I can't condone what he did, but at least he was thinking about the animals, not the humans who worked at the THS. I agree with L4H, though what he did was against the law, I don't think he should be thrown in the same boat with Trow and the others. Just my 2
