Lizzie, Preterhumans

A soap box I don't usually get on

Anyone who knows me knows I'm pretty noncombative about a lot of things. I don't get too upset about a lot of things, up to and including politics and the news in general.

This one has me riled.

Actor "allegedly" beat cat to death in jealous rage

First off, yes, I am a card-carrying member of the ASPCA. Secondly, yes, I am a huge animal lover - and cat lover specifically. I am owned by three little fuzz demons, named Aya (Princess), Naruto (Roo), and Malik (Boo). I have had cats my entire life.

I think any person who beats an animal because their significant other "paid more attention to them" than to the accused needs to be dragged outside by the hair and hung upside by their toes. Anyone who kills an animal for such a STUPID reason, drunk or not (I don't consider that to be an excuse), should be shot.

This monster claims he "accidentally" killed poor Norman in "self-defense". Stop there a moment and reread that sentence. Note the two phrases in quotes. A 200+ pound man "accidentally" killed a 7.5 pound cat in "self-defense". Norman was found to have "broken teeth, broken ribs, a broken leg, a torn tongue, massive internal injuries including bruised lungs and a bruised liver and a chest cavity filled with blood" when he died, according to the district attorney.

Drag the man behind the courthouse and see how he likes being beaten.
