Okay, so why did he kill his companion then?

I could not agree more. Although this isn't what happened here, people valuing animals too highly results in problems when the neighbor has a yorkie that won't shut its freaking piehole or a cat that gets its pawprints all over your BMW and the owner of the pet is not held accountable, but YOU will be if you shoot the thing (which I'd be of the mind of doing). To me, an animal is an animal is an animal, and if a dog or cat is causing problems for me, I see no difference in shooting it vs if I shot a poisonous snake or even a non-poisonous snake, or if I sprayed for bugs etc. To me a pest is a pest and it's totally illogical to assign dogs/cats a higher plane of importance.

And yes, no matter how great you think dogs are because "oh, they're so sweet, they don't care about anything but loving you" (it's called they're too stupid to know better, it would be like having a blow-up doll for a girlfriend), a pet is nowhere near as important as a human's life. Only idiots think a dog or a cat is as important as a human being. Yes--someone who thinks a dog or a cat is equal to a human being in importance, they're an idiot.

All I know is a homeless man was arrested for something he was accused of. And, we see a photo taken of him after he was arrested. Most people dont look their best after they are arrested, and especially not if they are homeless.

I didnt see any video of him killing the dog. All I read is that witnesses said he did. Did any of the alleged witnesses make a video, rather than try to help the dog?

I guess everyone who ever has a witness say they did something is guilty until proven innocent, especially if they are homeless.

Like that guy the cops killed on camera in CA a few years back, he was obviously guilty of something - and probably kind of ugly too -cause he was also homeless.

If you cant tell, Im trying to get with the program, lol. Fact is though, it just doesnt suit me. Thank God! This is not an indictment of you personally either poodlestix. So, if it strikes a chord, and you feel a need to message me, please dont. Thanks so much.

Nobody knows, but was suggested that he may have purposely wanted to have been taken somewhere where he could get some comfort and care. It is being assumed that the dog was "his companion", which may have just been a stray, hanging around him and others, sadly. Yes, it is awful what he did...there is a lot of insanity or other motivations. It's difficult to see or think about what goes on.

Not me. Any "random kid" is still a human being, a dog is an animal. Simple--for people with brains and morals, anyway, it is.

Nooooo...this is what happens when do-gooders who don't believe in institutionalizing the mentally ill successfully advocate to release them and institute laws barring involuntary committment.
