#1 One of the commenters called for the death penalty. Also, if the cat's were tame would this be another case of "domestic" terrorism? Would someone mind asking Sully for me?

#3 I agree this is terrible, and the kid is truly messed up, but one cannot "murder" a cat.

Animals are not human.

Agred, but I just can't help to wonder if sometimes during say the last 5 or so years, there wasn't a toddler or a lone young kid being killed in an "accident" in the boonies, or more modestly, some mysterious arsons, stuff like that.

#8 There will undoubtedly be a gazillion "experts" who will testify / comment / pontificate about the perp's reason for such cruelty, but, when all is said and done, the little bastard should be locked up for some serious time before he graduates to trying his skills on people.

#9  Yes, someone capable of this is capable of who knows what other atrocities. What a heartless twisted monster.

#10 He could face a maximum of 158 years in state prison if convicted on all counts, said Terry Shavez, spokeswoman for the state attorney's office.

Ouch! It's not fun anymore is it?

#12 Here in the peoples republic of Seattle a while back there was a case of animal cruelty to a donkey - the media was all over it like Letterman on a 14-year-old.(1)

In fact they went as far as making a law and naming it after the Donkey.

At the same time there was a case of a child being killed by his (or her) parents. The media practically ignored this story completely.

To her credit the Judge in the Cruelty case made the contrast a specific point in her comments.

(1) Oops - I kind of mean 18-year-old.

#13 Animals are not human.

Perhaps not. But in a attempt to throw the flammable liquid of levity on a dark situation...

#14 Feed the kid to the lions at the Miami zoo. Turnabout is fair play.

Steve S. : Though I am protestant in background, the Catholics are right on the issue you have there.

#16 "Heaven goes by favor. If it went by merit, you would stay out and your dog would go in".

I don't know who said it but pretty much describes me and my dog.

#17 Not long ago here there was a discussion of the startling number of psychopaths wandering through the general population; but most of them do nothing more than hurt others' feelings because they continue to accept limitations on actual murder and mayhem, no matter how tempting. But those psychopaths who progress to actually acting out such thoughts on animals entirely too easily progress to acting out similar thoughts on humans. That is why the penalties for cruelty to animals are so heavy, not because stray cats and dogs have such high inherent value when tortured vs. when run over by cars or dying of inadequate food and shelter.
