Unspeakably horrible stories of cruelty

The story of the man feeding kittens to his pitbull has been widely canvassed but I only just came across this one. It's chilling.

I saw and heard the sister of the man who fed kittens to his pitbull saying he was just being stupid. She valued their lives just about as much as he did. A certain type of people don't care about themselves (except in the most base way) and don't care about others - human or otherwise. Quite commonly, they are parents.

They are just stealing oxygen from the rest of us and are suffering from a lead deficiency!

Added to that is the fact that cruelty to animals is a very good indicator of domestic violence.

Strangely enough, whenever I see photographs of the perpetrators of these sort of evils, I always wonder whether Lombroso did not have a point after all.

At least the judge in one case has shown she takes it halfway seriously. (but now wait for the inevitable taxpayer-funded appeal).

It's high time the sentences for this kind of filth reflected the repugnance people feel.
Either that, or give the creep to me and Os for a few minutes...;)

I know this might seem like an over reaction but I feel this guy needs to be locked away for a very long time.

Failing that, I want to join KG in spending a few minutes alone with him and any more of his "family" who think that what he did is acceptable.

And you'd be very welcome on the team, Big Bruv. :)
