It’s a good thing he’s been arrested, before he moved on to mutilating people.

He’s 18, he’s an adult. Try him as such. Of course what always happens is that they never give the maximum penalty possible, in fact he’ll probably get a very light sentence when it’s all over. Always happens and it’s just sick. It’s only a matter of time before he starts going after people.

This is not killing animals for nuisance, self-defense or overpopulation. The guy derives pleasure and a rush from torturing and killing a living thing. Pretty soon it won’t be enough for it to be an animal. court will underestimate, defense will say ‘good boy, first time, he’s sorry (he got caught), slap on wrist, free to go.

In fact, there are only THREE common threads to serial killers; bed wetters, fire starters and killing/torturing animals.

This guy’s a POS.

Nope, not this time. He's in Florida and will be tried as an adult. The AG here is pushing for the max and may well get it.

Florida authorities said Sunday that 18-year-old Tyler Weinman, above, was arrested and charged in the brutal killings of numerous cats in two south Miami-Dade County communities. The gruesome attacks over the past month have terrified pet owners in the area.

Always gets plead down. Always. The case where the kids doused lighter fluid on a rabbits’ ears and lit them on fire, the case of lucky bunny who had explosives taped to her and lit and thrown into a lake - videotaped - all these kinds of cases get plead down evne with overwhelming evidence AND people sending letters to the DAs to go for the max. Even if DA does sentences may not be handed out to the max.

If it doesn’t I will be extremely (and happily) surprised.

"Always gets plead down"

Any plea that doesn't include a lengthy probationary period along with intense psychological evaluation, treatment and perhaps even medication, is a mistake.

As others have pointed out, the torturing and mutilation of animals is symptomatic of much larger, and more dangerous personality disorders.

I’d like to see where he’s smirking from after he meets Weird Harold, Big Bubba, and Dirty Leon. Tender white boys like him tend to get a lot of entertainment in the slammer.

Yeah, but cat mutilation won’t put him away forever.

Tyler had two MySpaces (a personal one, and one for music), a facebook page and was a member of the group “Catch the Cat Killer”

Tylers parents were divorced, and he lived with both - one in Cutler Bay and the other in Palmetto Bay, which explains the geographic reach of the crimes. Both houses had been under surveillance for weeks. Police were put on the trail thanks to community tips. At least four of the killings happened on the street where his mother lived.

Weinman was arrested on May 29th for possession of cannabis. He had two previous arrests as a minor, but police can’t release the details.

IMHO anyone serial killing helpless pets deserves sentencing to the fullest extent of the law, monetary reimbursement to all pet owners who lost their beloved animals by his murderous hands plus pain and suffering damages, lifelong psychiatric treatment and location monitoring until the day he dies.

I'm not an animal rights activist by any means, but I love my pets and believe those who lost theirs to this killer will never be fully compensated for their loss just because they were animals, and not humans (by prior verdicts).

And most of them probably drank milk in their youth, too. Rather than start with psychopathic killers and work backwards, are there any studies that start with animal abusers and work forwards?

I'm not trying to excuse anything this little snot might have done, but I hear the "serial killers come from animal abusers" thing as often as I hear "child rapists are often killed and sexually abused by their fellow prisoners." Empirical evidence is the only proper way of determining if either one is true, and I should be reading about dead child molesters every day in the news if the latter truism were indeed credible.

Some of you guys are way overboard on this. Prison rape with racist overtones? Cutting off of hands? Ridiculous.

Sure, psych analysis and whatever the law requires for having pot and killing cats, plus a long probation. But come on with all the Torquemada stuff.

TorkyMutha?? Who’dat be?

Maybe if the penalties in this country fit the crime we’d have less crime?

Neighbor across the street had his house broken into on Friday while the family was at work...took plasma TV, computer, kid’s toys and games, jewelry etc. This guy is NOT rich, works hard and some PUNKS rip him off??

If they catch the filth that did this, I’d cut off their hand too!! Keep your hands OFF other people and their property!

Common decency has been gone for a long time in this Country...

I’m with ya GR but you are always gonna have bleeding heart limp dick liberals who snivel that these monsters should have their little minds looked over by some shrink, slap ‘em on the wrist, house arrest type crap etc. cuttin’ of hands might be a start, (if this kid is guilty of these cat mutilations) but I think the old tree/chains/blowtorch to finish him off should apply here.

In regard to child molesters being killed in prison.

Considering the recidivist rate of these monsters I'd say it just doesn't happen. I don't think I have ever heard of a child molester who had not been a repeat offender and not been in prison many times.

no, they need to kill him. if he is castrated, when he gets out, which they always do, he will just use the rage that being castrated generated in him to do worse than mutilate cats. kill him ASAP.

That's not something to bring up on threads like this, unless you don't mind the mindless abuse it brings.

I myself know several cat abusers who grew up to be caring, kind people.

But I won't bring that up either. Let them wallow in thier PC ignorance.

You want the death penalty for killing cats? You can’t be serious. Castration? I love animals as much as the next guy, but you people are talking some crazy stuff here. The kid killed some cats. That is a disgusting and mean thing to do, but I think prison would be an appropriate punishment.

How about putting the guy naked into a tub of water and throwing a bunch of cats in?
