Careful that you don’t “go on record” here, lol!! In all seriousness, though, your post shows a grasp of the deeper issue here. Too many bleeding hearts, here, methinks.
I don’t think they should get just a slap on the wrist either. They should be removed from their homes for awhile. Their psychiatric evaluation can take place in a juvenile detention center. These little creeps knew what they were doing. Times have changed. Kids grow up faster.
well you have a working conscience. you still wish you could go back and do things differently, don’t you?
it is the burden one has to carry for mistakes that kill innocent living creatures out of stupid cruelty. God knows you’d do things different if you could, so you have that going for you.
I had a crow in one of my trees that just would not shut up for hours. Took a co2 bb pellet pistol and winged him in the leg, wasn’t trying to kill, just scare off. i kind of felt a little bad but not so much. especially after i have seen what a group of these crows will do to smaller animals like small rabbits and such.
for the record, farmers who had too many kittens born to the cats on their property would drown them and nothing was thought of it...simply a fact of life....and for the record, I’ve never done that but my fil said he had done it as a youth back in North Dakota...
they take’pleasure in the torture and killing, they get off on it being in pain and killing it finally. that’a why thesefolks’need to get stomped on hard, like get the living crap beaten out of them, and if they don’t figure’out they etter stop doing that to other things for their jollies, you put em down right there.
i wonder if sebelius signed them up to be on the deathcare panel?
bullcrap, they sure are at 12.
and especially now we’re told kids grow’up faster’than we did, they know a hell of a lot more than we did. can’t be both ways.
Interesting to me that so many people post about a kitten being murdered but when a thread is started about abortion not many reply. Do we read the headline and not react? Just wondering.
torturing and killing animals for pleasure is not little suzy shoplifting some lip balm from walgreens.
and it’s not that every kid is doing it either. don’t minimize it. this is serious crap and it leads to more serious crap.
you cannot treat those that get their jollis from torture and killing of other creatures, lightly, at any age. it’s an addiction and they soon need a bigger thrill.
like i said, beat them within an inch of their lives. see’if they make a real personality change after and conclude maybe i shouldn’t take sadistic pleasure in the torture and killing of others, it kind of sucks’to be’on the receiving end, and if they change, fine, if not, end them right there.
That's hilarious. Just this Friday I had reason to recall the ads in Boy's Life for Remington rifles, which featured short cartoon strips of , e.g., Boy Scouts shooting crows with a Remington rifle. Varmits, you know. No explanation needed.
I was very far from knowing anything about this, but I WAS a Boy Scout, so it made sense to me.
yeah and that is sadistic behavior. the amish on ‘puppy farms do tht too to certain pups that don’t somehow’meet criteria, and that is sadistic cruel behavior too.
just because certain people do that as SOP to otherwise healthy animals, it still is sadistic. i don’t care what the rationale is. if it’s injured, deformed, etc there’s a valid reason. healthy, or not the right color,no.
thanks i was waiting for someone to b1tch because we’re not talking about abortion. this doesn’t take away from abortion, go and post an article, i will go over and comment.
well i didn’t think it was hilarious. i really don’t like thepossibility of taking any life without a good reason, which was why again i wasn’t trying to kill. but i have little sympathy for crows when i’ve seen how THEY gang up on and go after weaker animals. it’s deliberate and they’ve got evil intelligence. they are unnecessarily cruel.
Something needs to be done with these boys ASAP.
Forty+ years ago, when I was about seven, I spent part of my summer at my cousin’s farm. He had three kids, the oldest, a boy about one year younger than me. Because of the age of the kids, he also had a hired hand, a teenager on release from juvenal detention working as a hired hand. This teenager could out work anyone, but there was a little something ‘not quite right’ about him. No one knew what was wrong with him at the time, but he was ‘a little off’.
One day, he took my six year old cousin, me and a few friends, across the railway tracks and a small swamp, to another pasture and an old, falling down farmhouse. Nothing eventful happened. On the way back, as we crossed the tracks, he caught a large frog, held it by its hind legs and dashed it across his other hand, stunning the frog. He then broke or disjointed the hind legs, posed it back into a sitting postition facing the train. Of course, the poor frog could not jump out of the way.
The teenager told us that he thought it would be ‘neat’ to see the frog explode, as the pressure wave from the approaching train would do this. I did not look to see if this was what happened or if the frog died. I was shocked at his cruelty and told my parents when they came to pick me up.
This farm hand eventually left the farm and ended up for a while at both Millhaven and Kingston Pen. He also spent time in the Penetanguishene Hospital for the Criminally Insane (now apparently known as the Mental Health Centre Penetanguishene). He was what was known then as a ‘didler’, known now as a paedophile, both boys and girls.
Something needs to be done with these AZ kids so they don’t turn out like this teenager did!
Cats and dogs are companion animals. People feel differently about them. If cows and pigs were companion animals we feel differently about them too.
But why aren’t cows and pigs companion animals? Because they aren’t like us, the way dogs and cats are. Predatory! Sympatico.
Stay away from my little girl kitty. I’m warning you that there’s a Tokarev, an Arisaka, a Mannlicher Carcono and a Mosin Nagant protecting her.
Lord of the Flies
I have a soft spot for cats, especially kittens.
How anyone could commit a cruel act against such sweet creatures is beyond comprehension.
I hope they are jailed and raped.
No worries. I won’t. If you are attempting “irony”, though, you would have to have made a stand at some point against capital-punishment. Otherwise....no irony.
“torturing and killing animals for pleasure is not little suzy shoplifting some lip balm from walgreens.
and its not that every kid is doing it either. dont minimize it. this is serious crap and it leads to more serious crap.”
“you cannot treat those that get their jollis from torture and killing of other creatures, lightly, at any age. its an addiction and they soon need a bigger thrill.”
ITA. Like I said, far too many bleeding hearts here on this thread for a conservative forum. Glad to see another here understands the root problem and isn’t in favor of giving a slap on the wrist to these monsters.
Ah, so you noticed the in-congruence, too. You don’t have to post, but supporting the life movement would be apropos. ;-) I wonder if the number of sociopaths has risen since 1973 along with the drop in population. No one even considers those who weren’t born because of birth control. I’ll have to do some research.
As a kid on the farm we killed feral cats all the time. They are very destructive to poultry. We also kept several cats to control mice and rats. Of course the wanton killing of a kitten for the entertainment factor is repulsive but it is hardly a new act!!
i think you will find that the same people who’d post on this article are also those who post on stories’of moms killing babies in toilets, or the latest abortion doc in PA horrors, etc. there’s plenty of disgust and anger to go around. i am pissed at anyone taking pleasure at the cruelty of any innocents.
