    do unto others as you would have done to you………………………….
    throw them off a roof and let them see what it feels like. Also dangle them by their ass to show the arses they are!

    Motive, punishment , education, contribution, family involvement, all these need to be factored in, otherwise they will be terrors to the community for a very, very long time. They chose animals, what’s next children and seniors.

    I would like to suggest to the news editor to gather a list of political
    careers leaders who are NOW active working on upgrading laws to protect all animals and upgrade the penalties bestowed to these thugs.
    It has been proven that misdemeanor charge has not help at all to change their behavior.
    Animal abuse must be a FELONY no matter what the degree of physical harm done to any sentient creature. Removing such defective humans from society would be a good action as time alone makes people think and perhaps change. (?)
    These social misfit should be monitored to never have any animal or be employ on work near animals.
    We need to change society into a kinder society and it all begins we each of us. So, how about the Editorial Chief gives the record on these political leaders to begin with, so the people can begin to write letters to them demanding protection for all animals..

    I’m Just Glad That They Where DUMB ENOUGH To Record It!!

    Cruelty to animals at a young age is a common denominator in convicted serial killers worldwide. Though in this case it may just be a few young men doing what they deem to be fun … but then again … maybe it’s a sign of what these young men will become?

    These young men need to be seriously assessed …

    ” An eye for an eye” never solved any problem.

    The laws of this country will deal with those who abuse animals .

    Will you, please stand in silence and in peace .

    We have laws to deal with people who abuse Animals.

    We are a charitable people.

    We are what we are and what we are going to be.

    At this time of the year there is not much food out there for our wild birds many go to roost hungry.

    They don’t need to eat trash ,

    They can be trained with food to go bird sanctuaries.

    Cruelty to animals also extends to and includes our wild birds ,who is feeding them ? You are judged by what you do and what you don’t do .

    A hungry little bird will sing his little heart out even in the cold rain.
