Annoy.com Exhibition: Timothy McVeigh

The more we kill, the more we eat;
The kids explode; the mothers bleat;
A toxic wasteland blows apart;
The heavens bleed; the frying starts
Foot and Mouth and Bomb and Hand;
Burgers, Rifles, Promised Land,
Swallow the poison, kill the swine;
Block the circuit; pretend it's fine.
It's payback baby, even score;
It's in God's name, it's just one more.
The more we kill; the more we waste
Perfect precision, damn good taste.

The Regency Tower apartments are located at 333 N.W. 5th, one block west of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building. On April 17, 1995, a security camera in the McDonalds in Junction City, Kansas, video taped Timothy McVeigh at 3:57 p.m. inside the restaurant. That McDonalds is one mile from Elliott's Body Shop where we believe he picked up the Ryder truck at 4:20 p.m. on April 17, 1995. The video tape from the McDonalds does not show anyone with Timothy McVeigh. He appears to be alone. The Final Report of the Oklahoma County Grand Jury

"Now that the Federal Prison system offers a vegetarian meal plan, Timothy McVeigh should not be allowed to take even one more life," writes PETA's Vegan Campaign coordinator Bruce Friedrich in a letter to Warden Harley Lappin, the man in charge of the U.S. penitentiary in Terre Haute, Ind., where the Oklahoma City bomber is scheduled to be executed on May 16.

McDonald's "are culpably responsible for cruel practices in the rearing and slaughter of some of the animals which are used to produce their food". These 'cruel practices' included: 'the severe restriction of movement' of US and UK battery hens crammed into cages all their lives, and hens suffering 'osteopaenia'; the 'severe restriction of movement' for US and UK broiler chickens for some of their lives and endemic 'leg problems' caused by 'breeding for weight; 'rough handling' and 'pre-stun electric shocks suffered by broilers on the way to slaughter' and 'a proportion of chickens [used for McDonald's food] are still fully conscious when they have their throats cut'. He also found as a fact that a 'not insignificant proportion of the sows which produce pigs [for McDonald's UK] spend virtually their whole lives in dry sow stalls' where they suffer 'severe restriction of movement'.
Summary of Mr Justice Bell's 1997 verdict in the UK's longest ever libel trial, brought by McDonald's against Helen Steel and Dave Morris, over a factsheet entitled What's wrong with McDonald's? Everything they don't want you to know.

In the slaughterhouse, animals often struggle to escape. Cattle become frantic as they watch the animal before them in the killing-line being prodded, beaten, electrocuted, and knifed.

A recent British government report criticised inefficient stunning methods which frequently result in animals having their throats cut while still fully conscious. McDonald's are responsible for the deaths of countless animals by this supposedly humane mehod.
