Saw a thread on the debates forum about a woman killing a dog in SC.
I followed the article link and am horrified by her conduct and the suffering of this poor dog.
But more than that was the reaction of many on the forum who felt "it's just a dog".

I read the first paragraph and had to close the article.

That's an absolutely heinous crime. I hope she -- a bible lover, no less -- rots in hell.

While she rots in jail (hopefully) she'll have plenty of time to actually read the Bible instead of "love" it.

Job 12:7-10. But ask the animals, and they will teach you; or birds of the air and they will tell you; or speak to the earth and it will teach you; or let the fish of the sea inform you. Which of all these does not know that the hand of the Lord has done this. In his hand is the life of every creature and the breath of all mankind.

May St Francis of Assisi come down and dump her butt in hell. It would be no great loss.

based on the hundreds and hundreds of emails i get about dogs and other pets in need of rescue, those responses in the great debates forum do not surprise me in the least.... people are cold and cruel.... i can not even open most of the email i get because i know that there is nothing i can do.... and i don't need any more reasons to be searching for a bridge to leap from.....

The same is true in the politics/controversies forum...a lot of cynical, cold-hearted remarks going on over there.

This is a terrible story, and I hope this nutcase woman pays for what she's done to an innocent creature. People should be extremely wary of humans like her...first it's a "devil dog", what next? A "devil child"? If someone can do such a gory and malicious thing to an animal, that person could likely do it to another human, too. Scary stuff. And very sad.

I had to stop posting in that debate as I had been following the thread

The cold and heartless attitude of some of the posts, including the OP really were stating to make my blood boil , especially one of the latter posts by some uneducated idiot stating that all Pitbulls should be killed!!

They clearly have the IQ of my shoe size, I am glad the topic got closed as it was making me furious!
