When did this exactly take place? Last weekend? Last month?

May 26th, so it's been almost a month.


How sad. The repercussions are horrible, but you know... I have to question the decision to penalize the budget and availability of ambulances to a rescue squad. Actually, the more I think about this, the more I want to see something in the news or some kind of police report. My first reaction was focused on the idiocy of some people, but now I can't help but to question other aspects of this. Given that it's been about a month since the FurBQ took place, shouldn't there be some form of solid information out there?
 
Probably. But they seriously cannot be in their right mind if they go and do something like this. Plus..all that money wasted on a fursuit. Why would anyone want to ruin one just to do that in it?

Many people stupid people would. Two of the fandoms most popular fursuiters did/do it. I just imagine it to be like having sex wrapped up in a rug :/

Of course, it would be preferable if it WAS two trolls. The people wouldn't be in danger of losing their jobs, perhaps.

A.) "All that money wasted on a fursuit" - http://www.totallycostumes.com/ppp-56565-gorilla-suit-adult-costume.html (Here's a cheap 'fursuit' right here; non furs wouldn't know the difference between a 'furry' fursuit and a 'troll' fursuit.

B.) "No troll would do this unless they were really, really stupid" So a furry would do this because furries are really really stupid but trolls can't be just as dumb? Besides, if they bought a cheap fursuit, no one expected they'd be there so when the head count was tallied their names wouldn't stick out like a sore thumb as being not part of the main group, then this would be a very smart way to demonize the fandom. Also, I'd consider the Columbine high school shooting from years ago a 'trolling' attack and those guys killed themselves after killing or injuring many of their fellow students with guns. So yes trolls can be 'that stupid' just as stupid as anyone else.

I know of one fairly popular fursuit maker doing such an act...then thinking about how I saw that suit in pictures from a con. All I could think was about how disgusting it was and how people hugged that suit. D:

First things first, trolling is manipulating people around you into creating lulz, without being implicatable yourself. Columbine wasn't a troll, it was just a massacre. (You also really, really didn't even need to mention something so controversial, what are you doing jesus christ)

Now, if you're really going to claim that people who weren't actually part of the furry fandom did this, you're going to have lay some evidence forward. Just hypothesizing possibilities randomly isn't creditable.

"Haha, let's get ourselves criminalised and put on the sex-offenders register to... uh... lol, them stupid furries"

It sounds like one of those closely-knit little communities. This would be both why the repercussions seem exaggerated and why they would try to keep it out of the news. Cutting their funding is just their way of showing that they don't want the sort of attention this shit might bring. According to the mighty wiki, population ~2,100 and 40% of those over 45, and a relatively high-income area. I imagine they want to keep news of a bunch of crazy animal people fucking in public from spreading.

Stop with the persecution complex, trolls aren't trying to infiltrate the fandom and make it look worse in the public eye, the fandom itself does a good job alone by itself.

Then why not go farther and implicate the human race as a whole instead of limiting it to 'furries' when stories of sex in fursuits or copying each others art float up to the top of the poop heap? There are some people inside and outside the fandom who specifically target furries because many furs have a low self esteem and are incredibly easy targets to make said trolls feel better about their own miserable lives.

Now you're being ridiculous.

Well, to be honest, it takes a ridiculous level of paranoia in the first place to take seriously the suggestion that "trolls did it". Why do you have to assume that there must be a conspiracy to discredit furries from within the deepest levels of the internet, infiltrating furry conventions and sacrificing their members to the police in terrorist acts like this - when the obvious is that two furries without social skills just decided to get jiggy in a fursuit in a public place without thinking?

Ah, okay. With a population like that, I guess that makes sense. Cutting emergency services still seems like a bad response to me though.

In any case, I guess this'll be in the news after the investigation or whatever is finished. The two involved better flee the country while their names are still unreleased.

Also, alert the admins on the main site.. this will be worse than a certain Tyra Banks episode. o__o

I saw a vid on youtube of two cute suits so I googled their names and found a disturbing vid. Ew and they were interacting with strangers and hugging them. One of them still walks around in that yiffsuit and the other person sold it. Even more eww :C

Its the same popufurs I mentioned :C

Because there have been examples of trolls doing this before. I'm not saying it's a huge planned out conspiracy it could still just have been two idiots but instead of being sex-crazy furries they were just trolls. I'm saying it could go either way and would not be surprised if it WAS two fursuiters but we can't be putting blame anywhere until more facts are revealed and I'm more lashing out at the huge wave of disdain all bottled up with nowhere to go BECAUSE there are no targets yet besides 'furries' which we're all furries so the hate is going to get vented out at each other like it already has in this thread and wherever else this has been posted.

Because maybe we are dealing with the furry fandom and what some of its less "bright" members do? Hell, isn't it usually those that are aligned to the furry fandom that like to bang each other in murrsuits in public?

There are some people inside and outside the fandom who specifically target furries because many furs have a low self esteem and are incredibly easy targets to make said trolls feel better about their own miserable lives.

What is attacking the fandom? The Anti-furry Illuminati or the Anti-Furry Brotherhood? Just accept the fact that a good number of furries are complete and utter nimrods and actually help foster the negative stereotypes of the fandom.

Because there have been examples of trolls doing this before.

Would you kindly enlighten me on the so called "incidents" that took place involving trolls that purchased thousands of dollars worth of murrsuits, got arrested, and ostracized for life, all for shits and giggles?
 
Fucking idiots! How embarrassing for the rest of us, now. That was so unnecessary. Must've been really drunk or something, shit. Whatever they get now is too good for them.

You guys dont need to be derailing the thread and bringing up things like colombine or how implicating the human race blah blah blah.

Seriously, this needs to be taken care of.

AND... I know its a small community, but unless its an ongoing investigation, there should be something out there and i spent an hour googling new jersey fursuit, sex fundraiser.. everything i can imagine and i cant find one shred of evidence to back this up.
I hate saying this but ... the person who posted the original journal should have left this in the dark until people could find some evidence on what happened. A picture, news report, police report.... something.

Well it did cause the closure of a fairly large fur meet (200 people iirc), so they had to inform the attendees what the hell happened and to explain why they aren't having a meet ever again..

If nothing else, there should have been a little blurb about in the legal section of the local newspaper. You know, the place where they list everyone who's gotten a traffic ticket or whathaveyou. Something about public indecency or something. Not sure how easy it would be to locate that on the internet though.

I agree... he should have made an announcement or something like, "FurBQ In NJ 2013 To be Announced".

You keep stressing 'furry illuminati' when I said it could have just been two retards. You aren't reading my posts.

You keep stressing 'thousands of dollars in fursuits' when any schmuck can buy a cheap animal suit off the internet anonymously and since we haven't seen the pictures and since non-furries don't understand that those cheap animal suits aren't 'real fursuits' yes, any person can buy 'murrsuits' for cheap and for the lulz. You aren't reading my posts.

I repeated, now for the third time, you aren't reading my posts, in the hopes you'll do the opposite from now on.

I doubt that it will really come to that.
I know it probably won't, but it'll be bad if FAUXNews reports on this.
