Declare that the killing of the white buffalo calf is a hate crime

All religious/spiritual and civilized people should be aghast and horrified with the slaughter and skinning of this rare animal, which is sacred to the Lakota people.

Whether this was done for profit or as an ignorant act of vandalism, this crime needs wider attention and deeper punishment for the people who committed it.

      The White Buffalo is a "symbol to Native American " there is laws for killing our Bald Eagle *protected by the Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act * $5,000 or one year imprisonment with $10,000 or not more than two years in prison for a second conviction. Felony convictions carry a maximum fine of $250,000 or two years in jail ** we need to have the same laws for these beautiful animals

      This is a sacred animal and the killer knew the people who would be the most upset about it were those who worshipped it. If that is not hate, I do not know what is.

      As a native person I'm deeply appalled by the killing of Lightning Medicine Cloud. I hope whoever comes forward and admits to his wrong doing, and my desire for revenge has only resulted in prayer. Prayer that Creator takes care of this, and whoever did this comes out from hiding.

      Why was this done? Who would be foolish enough to destroy something that is so precious to many indigenous people's here in the America's?

      I would see this the same as murdering a person, Lightning Medicine Cloud was sacred to many native people including me. Brings tears to my heart knowing he's gone now.
