> He never said that whatsoever, stop grandstanding.
No, let’s be precise: he said that I was crazy (for believing a 10 year sentence w/o parole was more appropriate) and that it was only an animal not a human. As if that makes a dam’n bit of difference: subhuman behavior is subhuman behavior no matter what its victim happens to be.
His previous post showed that he didn’t believe the act even warranted a maximum of five years sentence.
Perhaps you should stop grandstanding instead.
> It was just an animal as he said and that jail term is outrageous IMHO.
Outrageously short IMHO. It was more than “just” an animal, it was somebody’s pet: a domestic cat, to be precise.
> People like you give ammo to those that scream against hunting.
What a perfectly idiotic thing to say. As if hunters would stoop so low as to beat a cat to death in front of kids.
> He should of just filed a complaint with the city, then had the animal either locked up or it’s head cut off for a rabies check.
Yup, that’s the law. And assuming that the Animal Control Officer could stop his arse from falling off while he was rolling on the floor laughing at the complainant, that is what should have been done.
Beating a domestic cat to death in front of kids? Do you think that was the appropriate thing to do here?
If so, you’re a sicko too
If not, then what legal sanction do you believe appropriate?
Having worked for a vet a few years, the suggestion I gave was the appropriate answer (call city, have them impound the animal, and make sure it was not diseased). You read it, you seemed to agree with it, then you jump right in to pit bull crazy again.
Lets make this as clear as possible. I don't agree with your proposal that 10 years is the just punishment for the offense. I know you love your dogs, but 10 years is crazy. I don't care if he beat it the middle of the town square.
Other details I would like to know. Did he kill the cat on their yawn or his own. Did he kill the cat knowing the kids were looking or did it make such a racket they came out and observed it. You make it sound like he just rang their doorbell and invited a film crew before killing it.
In real life, I have had a big dog attack my wife and kids while she walked on a city backroad (one child under one in the stroller). Bit her pants leg but did not bring blood. What did I do, I knocked on their door, told them that if it came out in the street again I would beat it's skull in. They moved. I really could care less it that offends you or not.
