And God shall let the dumb rule the earth

Yet again, God doing a nice job helping those who can't help themselves:

Video shows fishermen joking about catching, killing 83 dolphins

Fishermen were caught on video killing 83 dolphins and joking about their illegal catch, Brazil's environmental protection agency says.

The Associated Press reports that the video, which was later broadcast on TV, showed the fishermen netting the dolphins, which suffocated because they could not surface to breathe.

The dead dolphins were then piled on the boat's deck, most likely to be sold as shark bait. The fishermen laughed after someone said, "Everyone's going to jail after this filming!"

Authorities are still trying to identify the culprits. When they are, "they will suffer the appropriate sanctions," an official said.
