Firstly, I wish to say that I am sorry to report another example of animal abuse. I prefer happy stuff but I just feel that this needs to be discussed openly and exposed. This is the only way that it will eventually cease.
Anyway this is good news. Animal abuse of this nature in society will take a long time to stop or diminish in frequency because for some sad and inexplicable reason it is part of the human psyche. Some sad people like to hurt animals which means other people will make videos of people hurting animals. It’s the human way.
The crush videos were made in Houston, Texas over the period: 2010-2012, as far as I am aware. Ashley Richards, 23, was the actress and Brent Justice, 54 (ironic name), was the video maker. They were making the nastiest of specialist “consumer products”.
Ashley, as the scantily clad actress, did the following in front of the camcorder:
- Stabbed puppies and a kitten
- Chopped of the limbs of puppies and kitten
- She used a meat cleaver and knives
- Urinated on puppies and a kitten
- Puncturing the eye of a cat with the heel of her shoe
- Made sexual remarks while doing the above
She was convicted after pleading guilty on four counts of making crush videos under the Animal Crush Video Prohibition Act of 2010. She was sentenced to 10 years detention.
Richard’s crime was more serious. He was convicted and sentenced to 50 years in prison for cruelty to non-livestock animals.
PETA instigated the arrest and conviction. They made a complaint to the authorities.
Damn them, I say. May they suffer purgatory in hell when they die.
