The Stafford SPCA has been on facebook being extremely unprofessional. If your quick it may still be there before they take it down or facebook does it for them, it is mostly under a post about a dog named Addie. The background on who the bickering on facebook began is not important in my opinion, it is the fact that the owners of that SPCA didn't stop to think what their childish behavior was going to do in the long run. Wether the issue between the SPCA and the accused is legit or not, there was no business putting it out there on facebook, that will be meant for the courts to decide who is wrong and who is right.

I took many screen shots of the "conversation" on there, as they were quickly deleting posts made by people and picking and choosing which of theirs to leave up. Personally, I am a friend on facebook of the person that is being accused of a crime. I didn't even jump in defending her, I just found what was going on very unprofessional and giving the SPCA a bad name. They feel that since they run the place that they are above everything, they proudly pointed out numerous times that they were their own entity and had no parent company. There were numerous people that knew nothing of the accusations to my friend and were commenting on it being unprofessional and they began bashing those people. It is admitted in the posts that Bill and Lori (who run that particular SPCA) are doing the posts.

I at one point made a comment after they started saying very inappropriate thing stating that if they were my employee I'd fire them for talking like that. They replied, "...your broke dumb a$$ couldn't afford me...your stupid a$$ will be banned shortly too. I guess this is what underemployed people do with their time".

Then they start getting dirty stating that they are pulling criminal records on everyone that has posted on the thread and states that she has a lot of friends with sex crimes. They were threatening the accused stating that if she didn't go onto her facebook page and tell everyone the "truth" (which again is up for the courts to decide who is right and wrong here) that they were going to start airing out her "dirty laundry" and continue researching her friends. They state that "when we get insulted, cursed at, we reply in the language that the person understands". Every post that I saw, which wasn't all of them, did not begin with anyone cursing at the SPCA. Most have been along the lines of "how unprofessional".

Apparently at some point in the night, Lori received phone calls from someone claiming to be part owner of the local newspaper, and it was by what she assumes was a 13 year old kid. Wether she knows or not, she claims the people that called her were a particular family and then posts crimes that they were charged with such as DWI, attempt to elude, etc. And yes, I'm aware that there are public records, but there is no need to post this on facebook! They then discover an address of the father of that family who is a registered sex offender and they state "Thanks to the RSO registry we now have his home address and place of work. Keep screwing around. Lori is almost pissed now. You really don't want to see what happens when you really make her angry."

The accused has continuously pleaded for them to stop doing all this but they won't let it go. It then states "If I have even one hatefilled message on this page when I wake up in the morning, I will do NOTHING but turn their lives upside down all day long. Lori"  The posts continued the following day.

Don't you think your time should be with the animals? Do you really have that much free time to argue like children with people? Most of which are just stating that what you're doing is unprofessional and giving the SPCA a bad name.  From the time I began reading the post to now, they have lost numerous "friends" on facebook due to this, this is just going to hurt the animals they are claiming they're trying to save.
