Parrot detained as a key witness in Dominican Republic murder - A parrot and its alleged revelations on a murder has become the talk of the city, and have even led to the bird’s arrest and detention in the Central Police Command.

The bird has reportedly cited the names of several people who may be involved in the death of Carmen Altagracia Castillo, 60, a Dominican-Italian whose decomposed body was found Thursday in her residence of the sector Los Reyes.

Prior to the parrot’s capture the victim’s relatives affirmed that they had to protect it because it was in the residence when the crime occurred.

The Police said several people are being questioned but deny that the parrot is revealing names of possible perpetrators.

Only in the DR would I believe this would be possible. Probably the "number one witness" as well and can't even be paid off. Mmmmmm????

Parrots only repeat what they hear, they do not recall sounds or have memory. This stupid arrest on an innocent bird, just proves how irrelevant the "three stooges like" authorities in charge are.
Next we will have a monkey as a judge and a donkey as the main prosecution witness.

This takes it all. The bird has more integrity than any Dominican.

At least it will speak up for what is right.

Now this article puts it all in perspective.

The parrot and the plumber

A plumber promised old Miss Johnson he would be at her apartment by 11am the next day. When he had not arrived at 11:15 she locked up her apartment and went about her shopping.
The plumber arrived at 11:30 and knocked on the door. Although Miss Johnson was gone, her parrot called out, "Who is it?" and the plumber said, "It's the plumber." When noone came to the door the plumber knocked again. Again the parrot called out, "Who is it?" Thinking Miss Johnson may be hard of hearing the plumber raised his voice and shouted, "It's the plumber!" This routine continued for some time.
Eventually Miss Johnson returned to her apartment with her bag of groceries and found the plumber dead at her door. As she unlocked the door and let herself into the apartment she exclaimed, "Now I wonder who that is?!" to which the bird promptly replied, "It's the *Fuckin PLUMBER!!!!!"

Will the parrot have acccess to booze, sex, and drugs? When trial comes, will probably been let out on bond of a couple of crackers and will never come back.
