Can it get more insane than this?

DC Law Forces Exterminators to Relocate Rats.

By Christopher Goins, CNS News

Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli says he is worried that a new District of Columbia law that governs how pest control operators must handle rats may result in entire rodent “families” being relocated across the Potomac River into Virginia by D.C. pest control personnel.

Lately, there have been reports of growing rat infestations around the Occupy DC protests at Freedom Plaza and McPherson Square.
Cuccinelli said D.C.'s new rat law--the Wildlife Protection Act of 2010 (Wildlife Protection Act of 2010.pdf) --is “crazier than fiction” because it requires that rats and other vermin not be killed but captured, preferably in families; no glue or snap traps can be utilized; the rodents must be relocated from where they are captured; and some of these animals may need to be transferred to a “wildlife rehabilitator” as part of their relocation process.

OK folks here's my thought....
Exterminators cannot kill rats in D.C anymore. Rats and their respective "family" should be relocated across the river to Virginia. So one must question:
Since when rats are protected species? Really, don't we have enough of them? Could DC-land politicians be considered a part of the "rat's family" ? After all they are all the same... 
Seriously, we just can't let a rat relocation go to waste. Here's a chance to get rid of  deceiving politicians...
Lastly, who is the genius that conceived this thing? This person deserves to be relocated out of the planet.
DC-land surprises us with new absurd laws just about everyday, don't they?
Summarizing, this whole thing leads me to only one conclusion: rats deserve more respect and rats are humans too ;) ...Not!
