OH MY GOD.
Just heard this story on news radio and had to pull over to share it. These sub human beasts should be thrown into a pit of vipers.
How can this be protected by the First Amendment?! The First Amendment protects speech, NOT conduct. The Founding Fathers would be weeping if they knew one of the most important protections we have was used to shield these disgusting sadists. They should be charged with animal cruelty, obscenity, and whatever else can be thrown at them. What a frightening, heartbreaking absence of empathy.
If people can treat animals like this and not be deservedly punished, I shudder to think of how we are going to improve the general safety of our country when it comes to preventing violence and getting justice for the wronged. In light of the recent tragedies in Boston and West, TX, this is just another disheartening low.
Please read ahead with caution; not for the faint of heart.
