Cops: Kitten hurled against wall after disrupting Virginian's play

JUNE 2--A Virginia man allegedly killed a kitten after the animal somehow disconnected a video game while he was playing it Monday night, police charge. Bruce Walston, 21, is facing an animal cruelty charge for allegedly killing his girlfriend's black kitten by throwing it against a wall in their apartment, according to the below Staunton Police Department report. Walston was arrested after his girlfriend, Bessie Hess, called cops about the incident, which occurred in front of her children. Walston told cops that he was "arguing with Bessie over the cats disconnecting his video game at which time he picked up the kitten and threw it against the wall." When police arrived at the couple's home, the dead pet "was laying on the front porch." Walston, pictured in the mug shot at right, was charged with animal cruelty and disorderly conduct, both misdemeanors. He was booked into the Middle River Regional Jail, where he is being held without bond.

I guess I'm just getting old. How could anyone kill a kitten.

Reminds me of the guy in the military who threw a puppy off a cliff. Someone should slap these people 500 times with their own shoes.

If a tiny, helpless kitten isn’t safe, then neither are her children.

I do too. That hair looks like he had video wires coming out of his head. I hope his cell mate is a cat lover who takes this personally.

Typical feral ghetto-dwelling violent offender. The woman is just lucky it wasn’t one of her kids who disconnected Deshaun’s video game or she’d be making funeral arrangements right now.

Yep. He’s been charged with breaking and entering in another case, and with two counts of assault and battery in (I think) a third case. Wish the SOB would try breaking and entering the homes of some of my favorite Freepers; we’d be rid of him once and for all I think.

Yeah, he's a real bad-ass.../s

I just hope his cell mate has as much fun with him.

Throw the lowlife against a wall hard enough to kill him. He “disconnected” the sweet little kitten and that makes me mad. According to his value system, that should be plenty of reason for me to kill him.

If he goes to jail, he’s gonna wanna lose the “reins”.

Wouldn’t want to make “steering him” too easy for “Bubba” and his buddies.

A lion would kill him too fast with a spinal cord snap.

Better he go out screaming and conscious, one bite at a time.

That works. Or being slammed repeatedly against his cell wall until his head cracks. I am sick of animal abusers. You see the thread where the drunken mother stabbed the dog yet?

Euthanize him before he moves up to humans.

Big cats kill by quickly by severing the spinal cord.

Dobermanns bite, hold on and *drop* their full weight out from under themselves, teeth embedded in flesh, doing horrible, ripping damage.

Hitting them just makes them madder...and more determined.

Imagine a world with no “padding”.

Too humane.

Did the kitten go ‘painlessly and peacefully into that dark night’?

I doubt it.

Massive internal injuries and bleeding out, at best.

I hate animal abusers. I missed the horse auction tonight because I have a bad case of bronchitis. Good thing as there were many horses in bad shape & Sassy would have been in tears. That boy is lucky that drunken mother didn’t stab him. I hope she rots in h-ll too.

I love this picture of Medusa. Picked up a print of it in Italy many years ago. One of my favorite pictures. I can relate to her.....

"How could anyone kill a kitten."

How could any human being kill a kitten.

Couldn't, that I know of.

He should go out the same way the cat did.

We'd have to rig up a special device to throw him against a wall. This?
