These crush torture animal videos WILL teach our young to become violent criminals due to the fascination with animal torture. The USA also has the highest total documented prison and jail population in the world. In 2006, $68,747,203,000 was spent on corrections. (Florida alone spends $2.5 billion a year on State prison). States spend an estimated 7 percent of their budget on corrections. The cost of medical care for inmates is growing by 10 percent annually. QUESTION: Isn't our prison population high enough?
ALSO PLEASE CALL YOUR CONGRESSMEN AND TELL THEM WHAT ARE CRUSH KITTEN/PUPPY VIDEOS DOING IN OUR COUNTRY? NO MORE CRUSH ANIMAL VIDEOS--EVER!!!!
When the United States Constitution was penned centuries ago, the law makers never had to deal with issues of child pornography or sex pervert videos. A little common sense is needed that in this day and age-you simply can't go "by the letter exactly" when it infringes upon the rights and SAFETY of children as well as animals to accommodate modern technology and how culture changes. Child porn and animal torture videos is part of our modern culture: Yea, Children and the beasts are deserving of society's protection-that is, if we choose to be civilized; if we choose to make child and animal torture porn legal under free speech--we chose the path to savagery.
NOT passing HR 5566 is more serious than you think: How can WE the People have faith in our Country and leaders when there is no sense of decency and morality, and has fallen to the depths of depravity with the disgraceful legalization of crush kitten pornography. How can we trust-or respect-such leaders? You think about that.
Crush kitten/crush puppy videos are corrupting America including our young giving rise to new legions of serial killers, psychopaths, and National terrorists. American Psychiatric Association names animal cruelty as a criteria for conduct and personality disorders:
"Crush kitten" and "crush puppy" videos are becoming increasingly popular across America, and will escalate to epidemic proportions due to the Supreme Court's recent ruling to legalize them. Often teenage girls "star" in these videos - handcuff a defenseless kitten or puppy by the neck, then she proceeds to slowly torture it to death - including sadistic LIVE impaling with stiletto shoes. The kitten or puppy screams in agony, and slowly dies - without mercy. Men buy these videos and masturbate while watching this hideous spectacle and screams of agony: It brings them sexual gratification to watch a teenage girl torture and crush defenseless animals.
People download and watch these for sexual gratification: The sexual perversion is called "paraphelia”. Even children can access these sick materials simply by downloading them, perhaps out of curiosity. It's not hard to find such sites on the Internet with any search engine-keep in mind it's legal to download and watch. Adults download them, and can even show their children such materials (if an adult is sick enough to view these, they will show their children as well). If The Supreme Court says, okay fine. It's free speech: Please examine the damage it causes society:
The Supreme Court recently ruled there is nothing wrong with watching animal torture, including dog fighting videos because it is free speech.
Representative Elton Gallegly of California has acted quickly and introduced a bill to amend the law. H.R. 5092 will make the Crush Act’s language more specific and resolve the over-breadth concerns raised by the Supreme Court. Passage of H.R. 5092 - led to HR 5566, then the Senate created S 3841 which has the wording of HR 5092--bottom line will help prevent a revitalization of the crush video industry. The original Crush Act was passed with little opposition—help us ensure that this revision passes, too.

Animal torture, "crush kitten," and "crush puppy" videos are becoming increasing popular across America. Children and teenagers access these sick materials simply by downloading them. It's not hard to find them on the Internet-keep in mind it's legal to download and watch. Adults download them, and can even show their children such materials. Keep in mind if a person is sick enough to watch these videos of torture for pleasure-chances are they will show them to their own children.
Keep in mind when you allow videos of animal getting tortured to remain legal, children and teens can easily down load them, desensitizing them and they become fascinated with animal torture-then WILL lead toward committing such acts.
"One of the most dangerous things that can happen to a child is to kill or torture an animal and get away with it," Margaret Meade, Anthorpologist.
Freedom of speech has its limits when it places a society in danger such as the ban on child pornography as it leads to violence of children. Films that exploit, torture, and kill animals for entertainment purposes also puts society in danger, for it is destructive inciting violent and antisocial behavior, thereby endangers our citizens: It perpetuates and spreads violence in America, and can even pave the way to attracting new terrorists in our country. Adults showing their own children these videos (since it's easy to access and legal) *will* do damage and leading to child abuse and SEXUAL ASSAULT against children. Parents sick enough to watch crush kitten videos are perverted enough to rape their own children!
Published October 29, 2007: LINK BETWEEN ANIMAL ABUSE AND SERIAL KILLERS
"Ted Bundy, David Berkowitz and Jeffrey Dahmer have more in common than just being serial killers. These three murderers are also connected by the fact that each of them tortured and/or killed animals during their childhoods. "Researchers as well as FBI and other law enforcement agencies nationwide have linked animal cruelty to domestic violence, child abuse, serial killings and to the recent rash of killings by school age children", says Dr. Randall Lockwood (vice president of training and initiatives for the Humane Society of the United States.
Some children are cruel to and torture animals to impress their peers, but future serial killers usually torture animals purely for their own enjoyment. Animal abuse is a recognized sign of a mental disorder. If a child hurts animals it should be a red flag and immediate action should be taken. While there are many factors that contribute to someone becoming a serial killer, the one constant they share is animal abuse.
Jeffrey Dahmer showed an intense interest in dismembering animals as a child. As an adult he was charged with murdering and dismembering at least sixteen people."
The Journal of the American Academy of Psychiatry and the Law
J Am Acad Psychiatry Law 30:257–65, 2002
"A history of animal cruelty during childhood was significantly associated with APD [Antisocial Personality Disorder], antisocial personality traits, and polysubstance abuse. Mental retardation, psychotic disorders, and alcohol abuse showed no such association."
The United States of America is an extremely violent nation
Gunshot wounds: "Each year, approximately 30,000 to 50,000 Americans are killed secondary to gunshot wounds. This upper range nearly equals the number of fatalities (59,021) sustained during the 12 years (1961 to 1973) of the Vietnam war. (1) In 2003, the last year for which these statistics are available, 30,136 persons were fatally wounded by firearms, representing 18.4% of all injury-related fatalities."
Just last year, 16,272 Americans were murdered in USA-in one year. 1,382,012 individuals suffered violent crime; 89,000 individuals were victims of forceful rape. Last year, 304,059,724 populated the United States and 11,149,927 were the victims of some forceful traumatizing and/or lethal crime.
SERIAL KILLERS LOOSE IN AMERICA:
"Authorities estimate that there are between 35-50 serial killers on the loose in the United States-and new reports of suspected killers are constantly surfacing all over the globe." According to an FBI Behavioral Unit study 85% of the world's serial killers are in America.
In short, there is nothing socially redeeming about "crush kitten/crush animal" and animal torture videos when done for entertainment and financial purposes, which even any teenager or child can access. However, relating to educational or for political and sociological purposes, this should be the exception - such as speaking against, or educating the public about the realities of dog fighting or other animal torture and how it affects a society, such as the making of a violent criminal or serial killer; or general psychiatric, psychological, and sociological research and education.
Please institute a law making it illegal to show, broadcast, or transmit animal torture videos, especially crush animal fetishes, other than for educational purposes as cited above.
Please make America safer. Say NO to animal torture videos (with the outlined exceptions). Please protect our children from this violence, and to ensure the mental hygiene of America.
Once HR5566 is signed to law virtually all porno sites will voluntarily take down these animal crush torture videos for obvious reasons.
