I'll drink to that. Was based there for a few years for work. It didn't even feel like America to me. I wish I could wipe it from my memory as well.

People don't know unless they experience it. It's like some kind of vortex of pain sickness. Nothing good comes out of Newark or at least certain areas. I need to be careful when I go visit my poor brother in the cemetery. My GPS likes to swing me through the edges of Newark. I never completely stop at the stop signs in that area because I'm afraid of getting jacked.

My point is that there are horrible people doing the same horrible things all over the country. The point of this post appears to be to trash Newark. This is not in defense of Newark--but it is faulty logic to say this happened because it is Newark.

Nobody is saying horrible things don't happen else where. And I am most certainly trashing Newark. Guilty as charged.

I like you. Maybe it would be fun to throw her into oncoming traffic and let her feel the terror that poor dog felt. What's one less worthless piece of crap surgically removed from society?

Thank you to the judge who ruled in this case! Would love to see more judges take this kind of action in animal abuse cases. Wish this judge had ruled on some other cases.

The sad part is that cute little ball of fur was actually trying to protect the owner when that lowlife scum broke into the house.

I have a feeling jail isn't going to be kind to that piece of trash, Haniyyah Barnes. If I were her, I would stay away from busy streets once out of jail.

To be honest I am quite shocked. I agree with the other person who said animal abuse should have much stiffer sentences.

I forget, who said "a society will be judged by the way they treat their animals"?? The Dali-Lama?? Confusious? Am I just dreaming that I think I read that at some point in my life?

She says she saw a boy hanging a dog from a tree with a leash in the front of an apartment that we passed by. Since I'm in a bit of a hurry, I ask her to clarify a bit before I bust a u-turn on a major road. Within in a few seconds, I know I have to turn around.

Passing by the apartments heading the other way, I see a man running to where a couple of kids are, but I can't get an accurate picture of what was going on due to traffic and paying attention to the upcoming light and traffic so I can turn back around to be on the same side.

Once I get turned back around, and into where the apartments are, nobody is out front any more.

Apparently the man stopped them, but my daughter says it was a real dog that was being hauled up and down the tree via one of those long line leashes over a limb. I asked here how old the kids were, and she thought they were about her age, she is 8.

I felt so sorry for that dog, but there was nothing I could do at that point.
Kudos to you for even trying and good girl for your daughter.
