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.
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.
