How in the world is she pretty? I wasn't even taking into account her actions, if I just saw her walking down the street I wouldn't think so at all. And I am a woman. Even just comparing her to other black women I see plenty that are FAR better looking in my small town!

My deepest condolences. However, you said from, and if that means you are no longer whence you came, then I offer you my most sincere congratulations as well.

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?
It was Gandhi and it is of course true. It is a known fact that serial killers often start out first hurting animals. If you can kill an animal it's not too difficult to kill a person. People that can kill an animal have stunted emotions.

How sad. And forget Newark; it can happen anywhere. Don't forget the case about 10 years ago in which a woman tapped a guy's bumper at a CA airport, the driver opened the car window to apologize and the guy grabbed her 10-year old Bichon Frise, Leo, and tossed him into traffic. The dog died, and the judge threw the book at the guy, giving him 3 years in prison.

I remember how sad that case was because Leo's owner said that she always took the dog with her to the bank, where the tellers knew him and he'd get a doggy biscuit. He was used to getting treats at the window, and that's why he ran to the open window from which the guy grabbed him. Poor thing.

Thats sad.

My mom was taking care of my dad who had Alzheimers. She ofteh took her Bichon with her when they went out. Once, they were at an intersection, my dads window was part way down. The dog jumped on my dads lap and he (late Alzheimers) sort of looked at her confused, tried to put her on the dash which didn´t work so he put her out the window. My mom was schocked but luckily someone from another stopped car chased the also schockd dog down and brought her back. My mom stoped taking the dog with my dad after that.

Should be put to death for eating meat then? Since I'm pretty sure there was cruelty involved in making it.

BTW, I'm not saying the woman in question isn't a witch with a b. She is. But I'm just saying.
