Enact the maximum sentence for animal abuse and cruelty

      Joanne Contegiacomo

It was a conscious decision by Michael Faulkner to torture Queenie, his dog,  that spanned several weeks. This was a determined effort, in that it was a decision he made every day he did not provide food and water for her. At any point he could have stopped this cruelty. This indicates the intent is clear - he wanted to kill this dog and he wanted her death to be slow and painful.

*80% plus of domestic violence victims coming into shelters and/or programs report that their abuser abused animals.*

To:
Suffolk County, New York District Attorney's Office
Enact the maximum sentence for Animal Cruelty

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      Animals puts their love and trust in the humans who take them in. It is a crime to do less than honor that loyalty.

      This is insane. If you as a person in a judges seat, cannot look at this picture and have your heart sink in your chest, then you have no right to be a human being. The man who did this is a nut job. Clearly.
