This little f*cker needs to get dropped off that balcony thats for sure. I graduated from Ponderosa 2 years ago and I never knew this kid but if I had he'd be feeling it. Sick beyond recognition.

I don't think suburbia is the cause . . .

I think the kids disturbed and obviously has some serious issues.

Why do you say Suburbia breeds this kind of activity??

I was raised in suburbia and turned-out just fine. Being a heathen has nothing to do with where one was raised.  thumbsdown

I am quite sure the local proscutor will use laws against animal cruelity upon this jerk. I also hope he is banned from certain school activities for his acts to teach him a lesson for his horrible beheavor. The pubicity of his acts will also haunt him for many years, and probably hurt him in getting employment even at a McDonalds.

Oh really? Certain countries and cultures are well known for ignoring and/or flaunting animal rights. Ignorance and arrogance breed more of the same when they're tolerated.

Laws against animal cruelty? Ever heard of the term 'slap on the wrist'? If he's a first-time offender he's pretty much in the clear. If he's even prosecuted and convicted in the first place (no guarantee), he'll probably get a relatively minor fine, no jail time, some community service work, and then he's done.

Let me put this into perspective for you...

You can get a group of your friends together, break into a fenced-in animal shelter, use baseball bats to literally beat the living shit out of dozens of animals and leave dozens more injured beyond recognition and still get off with a slap on the wrist. You can also chain a dog to your car and drag it to a bloody death, throw kittens onto freeways, and poison bags of pet food without ever spending one night in jail so long as it was supposedly your first offense. This is America, people. Wake up and smell the foul stench of injustice.

I seriously doubt it. I can't think of any previous examples of this happening with other folks.

Eric, PHS beat HRHS for the most fucked up thing to do to animals in Douglas Co. In 2002, just when HRHS was starting rennovation, some pissant got one of the abundant bunnies and its baby from Highlands [Rich] and tossed it across the gym during the "senior farewell." Kissed that activity goodbye for 2 yrs.

Indeed. But I guess when you're a bitter, reluctant suburbanite *cough* DLKAPA *cough*, you will go to any lengths to bash suburbia.

The remaining chicks were taken to an undisclosed location.

I'm not gonna debate all about how theres nothing to do in the suburbs and the boredom to the point that people do things like this because they see it as the only thing to do, though this place is pretty empty as far as entertainment goes, but this kid is seriously f*cked in the head.

Which you answered here:

Which I submit is hogwash . . . unless your definition of suburbia varies from the norm . . .

But at least we agree here . . .

Yep, it's perfectly acceptable to subject millions of chicks to untold horrors for food production everyday, but to drop a few off a balcony is sick beyond recognition.  Yeah sure

The "slap on the wrist" in Texas would be seven charges that are state jail felonies, and thirty eight class A misdemeanors... and that is for first time offenders. Third degree felonies if convicted two or more times.

I can see what you're trying to say. However, many of the cases I've seen prosecuted here in Texas are situations where the cruelty went on for years and years until somebody decided to get a group of folks together and hound the authorities into action. It's not like the police are on the prowl for animal cruelty. You have to make a big fuss about it and have plenty of strong evidence, such as multiple starving animals or carcasses openly decomposing on the property of the accused.

In the case mentioned in the post above you have a very rare situation where the incident was apparently caught on tape and covered by the news media. I'd be willing to wager that 99.9% of all animal abuse cases aren't caught on tape or covered by a major news outlet. In those cases the authorities are rarely interested enough to do any substantial investigating and charges, if filed, will tend to be rather minimal with minor punishments for those who are found guilty.

You are right. In most cases animal cruelty is very, very, very far down a police departments watch list.

You can get it right to the top though if you want to fund the new animal crimes unit.

Funding sucks... High profile busts get better funding. Ten pounds of cocaine will get more funding than 100 animal abuse cases. sad...

In fairness, it often takes repeated offenses and a growing degree of public outrage before action is taken on most issues (illegal immigration anyone?). Right, wrong, or indifferent this just appears to be a fact. You probably won't see a speed trap in your neighborhood either until a number of residents complain about a chronic problem with speeders.

I would prosecute this kid fully - particularly as this appears to be a deliberate and planned act ("prank" as this media outlet put it). In general, I'd like to see most people prosecuted "fully" with lesser sentences being the exception rather than the (norm?).

However, I personally don't agree with your suggestion that the suburban upbringing of this kid was a cause for this kind of behavior. Contributing factor for some small percentage of the population? - Possibly. A major or driving cause of the problem? - Unlikely in my view.

Just heard that the kid is facing 3 years and a 100K fine, felony cruelty to animals. If I get an actual source as opposed to the rumor mill I'll throw it in.

Although I see your point, I guess the difference is that in the first case you do it to get food, in the later is just for sick fun. Morally, there is a big difference.

Nevertheless, animal cruelty is never acceptable and it should be severely punished.
