File criminal charges against man who shot neighbors dog.
The constant horrific abuse inflicted on innocent animals has a pernicious effect on our society. We have chosen to accept these acts of atrocity. We are indifferent, callous and arrogant to animal suffering. We have lost sight of what is right/wrong, moral and ethical. The mentality of our society is self-absorbed, materialistic and sadistic. The consequences of animal abuse are frequently community service, counseling and perhaps a meager fine. They are represented by a public defender at the tax payers’ expense. They are released back into your community. Animal abuse has reached diabolical proportions. It has permeated every county in every state across the United States. Animal abuse, neglect and suffering are not a trivial matter. Hundreds of innocent animals are found burned, starved and frozen to death every single day in the "greatest" country in the world... There is something so very dreadful in tormenting those who have never harmed us, who cannot defend themselves, who are utterly in our power. ~ Cardinal John Henry Newman
