Comments on: Good judgment / Poor Judgement … what do you think? http://blogs.hillandknowlton.com/brendanhodgson/2008/08/07/good-judgment-poor-judgement-what-do-you-think/ At the intersection of yesterday & tomorrow Mon, 20 Jan 2014 15:48:33 +0000 http://wordpress.org/?v=2.9.2 hourly 1 By: Allison Brough http://blogs.hillandknowlton.com/brendanhodgson/2008/08/07/good-judgment-poor-judgement-what-do-you-think/comment-page-1/#comment-527 Allison Brough Fri, 12 Jun 2009 00:57:01 +0000 http://blogs2.hillandknowlton.com/brendanhodgson/11033.aspx#comment-527 I am appalled by PETA's choice of choosing this horrific incident as leverage for their organization. Although PETA is notorious for their shock PR practices it is disgusting and in the poorest of taste to associate the Greyhound murder to the slaughter of animals. It brings to mind the advertising tactics PETA used in relating the holocaust to the killing of animals. Wrong, wrong, wrong! PETA, you never fail to repulse me in your convoluted and perverse ways in order to bring some attention to your cause. Bottom line: BAD JUDGMENT I am appalled by PETA’s choice of choosing this horrific incident as leverage for their organization.

If PETA wants John-Q public to listen to their message and take them seriously — if they want to actually affect change — then imho this was a very poor decision.

Now, taking my PR cap off, from a private citizen point of view, I’m absolutely disgusted by this campaign and would now never consider supporting PETA as an organisation.  My sympathies are with Tim McLean’s family .. and not with any group trying to benefit from a horrific tragedy.
