This guy has turned himself in because the police were looking for him. He’s the guy who was filmed kicking a cat in a parking lot. Kicking stray cats is not that uncommon sadly and neither is videoing it which is equally sad and bad. It’s the video which got him. It was shared widely on social media – fame for the criminal but it’s a but dumb because it is good evidence and you’re more likely to get caught.
In my experience of surfing the internet for years when searching for cat news, the profile of the person who likes to abuse stray cats on video is a young male in his early twenties. He can be black or white. It’s about even on that score with perhaps I slight trend towards black men being more likely to do this.
I won’t show the video. There’s no need to. It’s too unpleasant. But we need to see the face of a self-confessed cat kicker. I need to try an understand what is going in between the ears if anything at all.
He’s been charged with a misdemeanour crime of animal cruelty. The guy who filmed him has not been found as far as I know and neither has the poor cat. We have no idea how badly he/she was injured. This is also normal. Sadly we often don’t know what happened to the victim of these sorts of crime: the cat. I guess they are second class citizens.
Note: There were two guys in this crime: the kicker and the video maker. The news media e.g. foxnews.com say that the guy in the photo is the ‘cat kicker’ and not the video maker. I have taken that on face value. The scene of the crime was Atlanta, Georgia, USA as far as I know.
