Good News: Crush Video Makers Severely Punished — 5 Comments

  1. I have to wonder how members of PETA are able to cope with the terrible sights and stories they must face on a routine basis in order to bring justice to the victims of vile crimes such as this. After digging around trying to find more information on this case, I wish *I* could wipe everything I read and saw out of my mind completely, and Iā€™m sure I saw only a tiny fraction of what they must have seen. Do members of anti-cruelty organizations eventually become hardened to all of the horrors they must see? I

    Regardless, kudos to everyone ā€” including PETA ā€” who worked to bring these two low-lifes to justice!

    • Good point Rena. I make a deliberate effort to limit the number of articles about animal abuse and I almost never write about the details of animal abuse because I think it can damage people. I have certain images in my head from one or two videos I watched years ago which I regret now watching. I never watch videos of animal abuse these days and writing about it can have a similar effect. Therefore as you say the people investigating it such as in this case may become psychologically hurt by it. It must depend upon the person as some may become used to it which is also a bad thing I would have thought.

  2. Good to see this outcome.
    However, I wish the sentencing were different. I believe that the actress deserved the 50 years or more for performing the actual acts.

      • Should she serve her entire sentence (very unlikely), the actual crusher will be free at age 33. Plenty of time left to purse her “hobby”. She should have received the 50 years like the photographer did since she was the actual abuser.
