FYI Everyone, currently there are petitions going around that you can sign to get this law & the consequences changed. Anyone who would even think about doing this is a sick individual and needs to be dealt with accordingly. This was one of the accused's FAMILY pets. Thankfully the vet was available and the dog was put down immediately so there was no more suffering.
Exactly, if someone has a sick enough mind to do that in the first place who’s to stop them from acting out again, but this time towards some little kid down the street or walking home from school??? Remember the murder of two year old James Bolger back in '93? The two boys who killed him were only eleven years old at the time, and took him from a shopping mall. They were sentenced in adult court and had their initial sentence raised to 15 years, so what are we going to do with these kids? Who’s to say they won’t act out in a similar way in the future??
Yup once we have the tracking devices in place the guardian angels or some other "good ol' boys" can finish off the job. Will set a good example for any other future offenders too(see.... thinking ahead here)
