I cannot watch the video. I hope these kids get what’s coming to them and repent afterwards. I know if I did something like that, it would haunt me. BTW, those kids ought to be thankful they are not in ancient Egypt, the willful killing of a cat would most likely get one the death penalty. The Egyptian goddess, Bastet, was believed to be the protector of cats and those who cared or them. IIRC, St. Francis of Assisi was an animal lover too and he is their patron saint.

It’s not the killing of animals that is the problem. Deer, rabbits and other game are killed every year by normal people. It is the torture of the animals that show a sick mind.

Of course, I was not referring to the harvesting of animals for food, like cattle, chickens, deer, fish, pork. The torture is wrong. These chumps are sick MO FOs.

Why is it that these stories seem more frequent now? Are we seeing an increase in all kinds of violence because of the general mood of the country under Obama?

Poor little kitten.


Well, if I may be a little OT, the causes of unnatural death used to be vehicle accidents but after Obama occupied the White Hut, it has been overtaken by suicide. I'm sure drug and alcohol abuse is up to, my grade school buddy installed breathilizers into cars that are mostly court ordered for the State of West Virginia. He's always busy, has over 100 installs to do on his list. That alone tells you something there. I think overall, we are in a period of bad karma as a country and crap like this story goes on. Still, I like what Prime Minister Deifenbaker of Canada said, we have the "freedom to be wrong, not to do wrong."

And??? You see something inconsistent with being against torture in this??? I’m a pro-capital punishment conservative. Get over it. (And no, I’m sure they won’t get the “death penalty”, so don’t get your panties in a knot.)

I adore cats and despise children, but also hope that they get the help that they need.

They’re not too young to know right from wrong.

The typical 12 year old isn't old enough to *fully* understand things like this.And as for a 7 year old...give me a break! Consequences? OK.Serious intervention for both? Absolutely.Felony charges for either? Not at 12...or 7.

What alternative reality do you live in?? 12 year olds aren’t old enough to “fully” understand cruelty, torture and killing??? Give ME a BREAK! Yeah, they need some “serious intervention” all right... we’ll just have to disagree on what that should be. Go ahead and coddle. That thinking is part of how we got where we are today.

Should read “alternate reality” but “alternative to reality” works just as well.

And it’s how most serial killers start: with the most innocent and helpless.

Yes,I've seen it written many times that cruelty to animals by a child can be a danger sign of a psychopath in the making.I suppose that could be true of one or more of the kids involved here.But at this age I say give them the benefit of the doubt regarding *felony* charges and sentence them,instead,to serious psychiatric intervention.

I just don’t have that much faith in “psychiatric” help. Not in the least — especially if the little monsters are re-released on society after getting “cleared” by these same psychiatrists.... No, thank you.

Not if you had anything to say about it, I guess!

You're on record!

Most kids have to be taught civilized behavior, even some of the quiet ones have the capacity for cruelty. Todays. school often make the big mistake of taking games and sports away due to their Lawyer puppetmasters. Kids need. constructive ways to release and gain control of this energy. Some treat lively children as annoying problems to be pilled into submission.

Go ahead and coddle

At 12 (and younger) I'm prepared to "coddle"...at least when it comes to felony charges.So what's *your* solution? Execution? Or are you prepared to go easy on them and give them all 30 years? Did you do anything extremely stupid at 12...or younger? I did.And I suffered the consequences from my parents.But during the 45 years that I've been considered an "adult" by the law I've never been arrested for *littering*,let alone anything more serious.Maybe,just maybe,the same thing will happen to these kids if they get what for from their parents and/or others *without* the felony charge.

Have you considered the possibility that one of the kids learned this stuff from watching his father/uncle/next door neighbor or from having seen a sicko video that a relative might have on a computer or a DVD? If,by chance,*that's* the explanation do you *still* give them 30 years?
