UK: Gratuitous Violence Against Cat and Dog

The dark underbelly of British society leaks out from the primeval soup and presents itself as gratuitous violence against domestic cats and dogs – our nation’s innocent creatures – and while this thug kicks and beats these animals it seems a mate of his is filming it on a mobile phone. He saves the video under “LOL” (laugh out loud)!. A descent into madness.

man kicks cats

These are foul people and all decent people should and do hate them. They are the product of broken families and crap parenting.

This video is horrible so a lot of you won’t watch it but…please know this: both cat and dog made full recoveries we are told. They are in new homes.

The 16 year old animal abusing thug was sentenced to an 18-month Youth Rehabilitation Order. He was banned from keeping any animals for the rest of his life. A lot of us would like a much more severe punishment. We would also like the parents who raised this nasty piece of work to be rehabilitated, at the very least, with the intention of arresting the perpetuation of this horrifying behaviour. Some people believe that the generous welfare system in Britain encourages this sort of feckless, degenerate behaviour.

However, it goes deeper and is more complicated than that. This criminal is likely to be deeply disturbed mentally. It is quite possible he was badly abused himself by a family member. You could argue that he needs long term psychological help and treatment in which case the sentence handed down is appropriate.

As well as kicking a cat in the head – actually he half missed, it seems to me, because if he had not he probably would have killed the cat – he brutally assaulted a smallish dog, hitting him/her in the face, stomach and face.

Both violent episodes occurred at different times in the same place: Luton, Hertfordshire, England (a dump) and it is the same person. He cannot be named for legal reasons which I disagree with. He should be named and his parents should be named and shamed too.

The criminal was in fact detained for something else but the police checked his mobile and found the incriminating videos on it.

  1. I couldn’t watch the video, on overflow of horror right now. Such violence against innocent animals is sickening! I think being on benefits and feeling bored and worthless is partly to blame for the bad behaviour of some young people, but it’s no excuse!
    We’ve a lot of unemployment in our town and a fair amount of anti social behaviour and damage to vehicles. Just recently we’ve had wing mirrors and windows smashed on cars, at night, also yesterday an old person living alone had their bungalow window spray painted by mocking youths, he was very frightened. If they had to get up on a morning to go to work they wouldn’t be roaming around half the night causing trouble. I think if they targeted animals instead of property they would suffer from the wrath of the decent people here! Our Police do their best but they get blamed for not catching those yobs and yobesses, but with their dwindling numbers (thanks to the coalition government’s cuts) they can’t be everywhere.

    • Exactly – there is no excuse actually. One is responsible for ones actions and words – even if you were abused as a child it doesn’t make it ok to abuse others. There is NEVER an excuse. Only reasons. And somewhere in there is always a simple choice made by the person to do evil. Maybe they should make a law saying parents must do 3 hours of therapy a week if their underage child commits a crime. That would motivate parents to control their children.

      I can’t watch it – obviously.

      Lots of these types in England…. I know the type.

  2. OMG that poor cat but thank God he got away not being kicked right but that poor dog.I had a difficult time watching that poor little thing being so abused. How can anyone be so vicious with a helpless animal. I had dogs my entire life while my kids were growing up and they are so loving and loyal and affectionate. That kid has to b mentally ill. How can a sane person treat any animal that way.

  3. I couldn’t watch either.
    I’m still not fully recovered from the evil spit-in-the-cat’s-mouth vet of yesterday.

      • I so wish we could find him R.
        It’s so important to tell each and every one of these vets what we think of them.
        It makes it personal and upfront.

  4. I do not watch that kind of video. I barely read the stories. People like that, I am certain, do not just stop their deviant, violent behavior. More likely he will abuse people one day. There is something wrong with this person mentally or psychologically that 18 months in jail won’t cure.

    But here is the other problem – the law punishes these deviants marginally. It’s not just a matter of age. If that had been a person he kicked the penalty would be more severe, but it is “only” an animal. We basically have to wait until he does it to a person so that the offense is taken more seriously.

    Honestly it’s a shame, not only for the animal but for the person because neither belongs behind bars. A mental institution is in my opinion the proper place for this guy so he can have a chance at life.

    • There is something wrong with this person mentally or psychologically that 18 months in jail won’t cure

      I completely agree with you. Well said. It is sad however you look at it. Something needs to be done to break the cycle: parents/children/parents/children. It has gone on for so long. Why can’t we do more to stop it? It is such deviant destructive behaviour it seems that something rotten is at the heart of us and it comes out from time to time.

      • Yes on everything you said except for I don’t think the problem is at the heart of us. I think Anne Frank was right that people are really good at heart. In my very uninformed and unprofessional opinion the problem is sometimes people are not normal, whether from birth or from how they were raised, and we haven’t got a way to deal with these people.

  5. sorry i really cant look at it too upsetting. theres just way too much violence happening on cats and dogs these days. just too stressing.:(
