  1. St.George's Passport and Immigration Control says:

    we have Stocks and a Whipping Post in the Towne Square for these cockroaches.

    It will make a great Cruise Ship Tourist attraction and we won’t charge $40 a person.

  2. NO MORE WAR says:

    I don’t know why. That joke court will only give the cruel person a slap on the wrist.

  3. Mark says:

    His Mother knows who the no-good punk is – bet she won’t speak up.

  4. Flog em and make them work the farm with hard labour.

  5. Pissant says:

    I will personally volunteer to throw there ragged asses into huge thickest of prickliy pear from a significant height, after lashing there a”"”"with stinging nettle prior to them being force fed (from the wrong end ) with a dozen habanero peppers.

  6. Kim Smith says:

    I think cruelty to animals is an indicator of a mental health issue.

  7. Louden Cleere says:

    This CANNOT go unpunished! A slap on the wrist and a fine will not satisfy the general public and will be a total PR nightmare. Think of the precedence that will set. These evil people need to be made examples. And no, a mental health issues plea is not going to cut it. That’s total horsesh!t and we all know it!

    Many of us have not gotten over the dog tied to a cement block and thrown off Admiralty House cliff into the water to die a slow painful death at the hands of his owner (who got a slap on the wrist, if anything). What is wrong with people?

    Come on Bermuda/BPD/SPCA/PLP do the right thing. Punish these people who know right from wrong. Be the good people your dogs think you are.

  8. wahoo says:

    12 months in prison is not enough.

  9. Bill says:

    You have not arrested them yet?
