Any person capable of such vicious behavior toward an innocent animal will no doubt eventually work their way up to brutalizing people. How many
serial killers tortured animals as children I wonder?
Realistically I don't think prison is the right place for this guy or others like him. I think he as well as society, would be better served in a
Being an animal lover, of course I was horrified by this act of senses brutality. I found the ferocity of some individuals reactions disturbing and
being a vegetarian, hypocritical in theory.
I wonder how so many, can love the animals they call pets and eat the animals they call food. I no longer see a distinction because all animals are
created equal in my eyes.
I didn't became a vegetarian for health concerns or because I didn't like meat, quite the contrary. I stopped eating meat because I didn't want to
be even partly responsible for the extreme cruelty animals are forced to endure at "Factory Farms" and slaughter houses. Helpless to stop their
suffering, meat was forever ruined for me.
I realize I can't force others to believe as I do, meanwhile animal prejudices will endure if only to perpetuate our self indulgence.
Nevertheless, what I found most unsettling about this incident, was the hate filled reactions of some people. To judge this man's crime worthy of
him being killed or worse, having his own head pulled off, illustrates our cultural tendency to condemn with no room for forgiveness. With such
rampant " Capital Punishment" mentality, is it any wonder so few extend their mercy to the animals we eat and sometimes even to our pets?
