Yes, that's animal cruelty and while I'm not like PETA I still hate animal cruelty. He should get at least a few days of jail time.

Ah, pointless animal cruelty. Really a great way to become famous, isn't it? I'm annoyed that I'm sorta resigned to this stuff happening. This bothers me, but I just keep thinking of the kittens crushed by high heels or the cat that was set on fire and I can't get that mad at Kenny Glenn. I think his animals should be taken away from him and he should be forced to do service at a shelter or something along those lines, but it seems I've lost the ability to be shocked at this kind of activity.

Sad but true. After seeing some of the other things that have happened, this doesn't seem quite as extreme. It just outrages me more to think that this little kid almost made Dusty into the next Zippocat.

Zamamee;4809419I think that's rather tasteless, but you are entitled to your opinion, of course.[/QUOTE]

When you woke up to breakfast this morning you knew that animal abuse existed; but you weren’t worked up over it, it was just one of those facts of life. Statistically this was always going to happen to something, a cat, a dog, a person; the fact that it happened here doesn’t change anything, the world is no more or less terrible than it was this morning.

At an abstract level you already knew about this sort of thing, that this level of suffering – and far worse – existed and continues to exist in the world; and that didn’t motivate this sort of response. So I can’t help thinking the real cause for your caring is the pictures, the videos; not the actual suffering of the animal but how it’s presented to you.

Frankly I consider the outcry for this kind of thing equally tasteless simply because it illustrates the usual absence of it and of the actions that should accompany it if it’s true.

How much suffering is there in the world around us? How little do people actually care? This is what people choose to vest their moment of fragile caring in, not in action, not in making things better, but in screaming for blood and vengeance. Emotions in this regard are nothing more than any empty indulgence that motivate no consistent action, they make a fragile mockery of the proclamations of anger people spend over the case, and then forget about in a handful of moments.

‘GRR. ANGRY. GIVE ME BLOOD! I’M SO DISGUSTED I’M GOING TO TELL YOU HOW ANGRY I AM!’ That’s the standard response, and if that’s what you mean by being tasteful you can keep it; it doesn’t do the animal any good, it doesn’t do the broken person who did it any good, and it doesn’t reflect very well on you as a person.

[QUOTE=Zamamee;4809419]Do you still think there should be legal action taken against Kenny, even if you don't disapprove of his actions?

Not really, locking him up or applying another legal penalty to him won't do anyone any good. He clearly has serious mental problems, and locking him up for a short while so he can learn to be nastier, or making him do something like community service has absolutely no benefit to anyone besides making a few angry people feel better.

The law isn’t about taking vengeance. Either you lock him up forever/kill him to remove the threat or there's no point doing it at all. That’s not going to happen so at this point the best you can do is remove him from his parents, diagnose him with a personality disorder and refer him to the psych services.

I look at there face book group, it was pitful. The group was made to help Dusty's Abuse know, then why has it turned into Mob crying for this kids blood? Did anyone stop and think this Video the kid made was a cry for help? You've made it know but now you've turned bloodthrist mob. Animal Abuse is sad yes, but once the mob turns blood thristy doesn't the group defend it's purpose?

I want to kick that kid in the sack.

Sure, I've hurt my dog before, but only tastefully, and as a means of discipline and teaching, never like that. Vicious and for no reason. Yeah, they should do something to that kid, because if they don't take legal action, I will find him, kick him in the nads, and put THAT on Youtube.

Stupid Kids. My perspective on life, holds a higher regard for those animals then those people. Simple because people know better.

While being a cat owner I really hate animal abuse of this sort, I guess there is little point getting worked up over it. That said, it's pretty bad that the authorities just turn a blind eye. I've heard of worse cases than this...if memory serves, not too long ago there was a teenager who repeatedly dropped his cat from a thirteenth story window and filmed it on his phone. As I recall the cat was still alive throughout the first few times. I wouldn't say any of it surprises me but it's really hard to imagine what goes on in that kind of person's head.

Voicing your opinion about such incidents in a decisive manner creates a social taboo if enough people do it. Laws against animal cruelty aren't very effective, if someone wants to hurt a cat then there is little one can do to prevent it and it is difficult to punish such a person unless they are dumb enough to distribute evidence over the internet. An existing taboo is a more relevant threat to a possible offender.

So voicing your opinion is not as ineffective as you say. It isn't as effective as joining some dedicated group of activists or even making a donation to such groups, but it is more effective than stating that you don't care.
