An example showing that it is a crime to shoot your neighbor’s cat just because he is on your property — 5 Comments

  1. Albert, I am also an atheist. I refer to this as disrespect for all life of all species. By brutally attempting to kill or actually killing other species or one’s own, one is disrespecting all life, including one’s own.

    My late Dad, who was atheist, used to say, “All species are evolutions gift to all others” I still believe this.

    I believe that we are all born loving, sociable and non violent. If we were not, we would not have survived as a species of mammal (for that is what we are) Other species, according to their evolutionary path have kept the art of nurture close. We humans have generally lost that essential skill. We have fallen prey to the power of our enormous brains, our amazing ability to alter and shape our worlds beyond our basic needs. We have been wooed by shallow and callous greed. We have forgotten the importance of nurture to our survival. The way many humans of all social strata live, brutalises and anaesthetises them to the importance of love and respect.

    I believe that if we could all regain belief and skill in the art of nurture, then we would see none of this foul cruelty from damaged scum such as Kristen, Aubert and countless other depraved monstrosities.

    I believe it is brutalisation of individuals (trauma of any kind) that results in individuals who are capable of this cruelty to other species. This of course is no excuse, but having learned many life lessons in the nature of trauma, and studied much, I do see that the result of brutality, so often is, yet more brutality.

    My own visceral response to such crimes is to shout for vengeance. I too would like to have seen Aubert imprisoned for a long time or constantly faced with the agony he perpetuated on poor, beautiful George. Rationality is not my forte when cruelty to living beings is concerned.

    We need to find a simpler, kinder way of raising our own.

    If we do not, we will not survive, never mind evolve.

  2. The only crime he committed is that he didn’t kill the cat. Any hunter knows that just maiming an animal, then not tracking it down to slit its throat (legal and humane exsanguination) or give it the final kill-shot, is legal grounds for being convicted under animal-cruelty laws. Had he killed the cat there would have been no crime of animal cruelty because killing animals with bows & arrows or rifles is considered a humane way to kill any animal — when done right. Everyone knows that a dead cat is a legal cat.

    Nice try to try to support your inbred UK psychoses, but again you’re dead wrong.

    • Hi Woody, you idiot. Your idiocy has emerged big time. It is impossible to describe killing a cat with a compound bow as humane because it causes a lot of pain and the magistrate says the same thing. Please try and switch on your brain although I am sure that’s hard to do befuddled as it is with booze and drugs.

  3. One of the absurd defenses in the Kristen case was that she came from Montana where it’s reportedly legal to shoot cats, by state law. That Texas has animal cruelty laws doesn’t matter there anyway as they don’t prosecute them. What I am loathe to maintain is the morality of it all. In my opinion it’s a crime against nature and all things right and just. It’s like murder… you just don’t do it. However I’m an atheist and would like a new word to explain this without having to refer to the bible all the time. One can write forever to explain why killing an innocent animal is wrong that every reasonable adult person could agree on… everyone on this planet, rather than just refer to a few sentences in one ancient book. We can be more sophisticated than that and relate to how we have come to see things now. That’s just my opinion but I think it’s well founded.
