1. I missed this. It makes me sick. Did the cat survive? Did it get placed in a new home.
The kid is a future Dahmer.

2. Thanks for the update.
I couldn't watch the video- hearing descriptions of it was sickening enough for me.

4. As much as I hate, hate, HATE to see an innocent creature brutalized--
--and they were indisputably torturing that cat--I hope that a 14 year old can handle all the shit raining down on him from the entire World Wide Web.

Jail is obviously not going to happen, but while some sort of punishment should definitely enacted, I don't really want to see this kid's life destroyed before he has a chance to turn into a responsible adult. And when I say life, I'm thinking about the possibility of suicide--when you're at that age, everything seems larger than life.

If this keeps up, the Witness Protection Program may be a good idea....

5. A kid who tortures animals
has an uphill climb to being a responsible adult, publicity or not. Animal cruelty and arson are the two big indicators of a serial killer in the making.

11. So we should bully a "serial killer in the making" until he REALLY snaps?
This kid needs counseling and punishment--but not threatening phone calls and letters to his house.

Which are readily available on the web. I hate, HATE mob mentality.

26. one would hope that the attention this has garnered would
have led to someone seeking therapy for the boy.

35. He's already snapped
now it's just a matter of honing his skills. It's unlikely to end well for this kid, nor for the people who cross his path. And I don't think there's much you can do about it at this point except keep a close watch on him and try to head him off when he tries something else.

25. He's not going to turn into a responsible adult most likely
He'll turn into a serial killer or a rapist or something. Personally, I don't have any concern for the boy. He's not wired right.

32. I totally agree with what you're saying. This kid has obvious issues, and the hatred of the world
is not going to help him at all. I object to what he did, and I object to what people are doing to him.

6. Oh My God - what sick kids. (somebody helped him with this - his brother & more?)
Makes me wonder what his parents are like.
this kid will need a lot of watching after some jail time.
Bet he thought it was just a big joke.

8. He's also a racist. Someone pulled up his youtube comments
white power, N*****s, etc. One of his cat abuse videos had a confederate flag in the background. I'm sure he's mirroring his parents beliefs.

7. Conduct disorder
Edited on Tue Feb-17-09 02:28 PM by drmeow
Likely to end up anti-social personality disorder.

Neuter him now before he breeds.

Also, put him on a psych ward for dangerous kids.

9. I can't watch the video.
People who abuse animals usually lean toward abusing people as well.

I have no sympathy at all for someone who would abuse an animal. NONE.

Sending good thoughts to the kitty, he looks terrified. :(

13. I couldn't watch it either. Someone uncovered a second video of him abusing dusty...
Which had him spraying windex into the cats face. I have no sympathy for this monster either :mad:

22. Story from NY Times
http://partners.nytimes.com/library/politics/camp/05210...

Search for animal - second reference.

Very believable given the characteristics of conduct disordered kids and Anti-social personality disordered adults (which GWB was in spades).

Young Bush Blew Up Frogs

This is old, but I just came across it. George W. Bush's Journey: A Philosophy With Roots in Conservative Texas Soil quotes a childhood friend of George W Bush:

"We were terrible to animals," recalled Mr. Throckmorton, laughing. A dip behind the Bush home turned into a small lake after a good rain, and thousands of frogs would come out.

"Everybody would get BB guns and shoot them," Mr. Throckmorton said. "Or we'd put firecrackers in the frogs and throw them and blow them up."

23. Thank you for posting this...
I am happy to read that Dusty is safe.

Right now, I am crying for the poor animal outside my door who wasn't. I am getting ready to take him to the vet to be euthanized. I have no idea who his owner is or was.

He has been showing up at my back door after dark to feed on whatever scraps I put out for him. At one time, he was a beautiful siamese, with bright blue eyes. We called him Possum, because when I first saw him on the deck, I thought that's what he was.

Today, he is no longer wanting to eat. One ear is half its normal size. The other is swelled up from an infection. He has a discharge from his nose and eyes, and his breathing is shallow. I can feel his spine and ribs.

From past experience, I am pretty sure it is Feline Leukemia or FIV. Since my back door is a magnet for homeless or neglected critters, I feel I have no choice but to end his suffering, and to keep him from spreading whatever he has from others.

27. I had to do the same thing a few years back.
Edited on Tue Feb-17-09 03:10 PM by susanna
We have lots of ferals here. I seem to be a magnet for them as well, though I'm not sure why. I think it's my huge garden. They feel safe there. Anyway, I found a kitten that was blind and utterly spent due to frequent convulsions. She couldn't even walk. I had to take her to the vet and they confirmed that euthanasia was the most humane option; she was very sick, and without costly tests, no way to tell what the problem was. The vet was terribly kind to me because I was so upset. I pretty much cried all the way home. Poor baby. I still think of her often.

ETA: The most important part of my post (doh): my thoughts are with you, Contrary1. Take care. :hug:

38. Thank you both for your kind words.
I just got back from the vet. The kitty had a temp of 105. After examining him, she felt that he had an infectious disease. He also had a major infection going on in his mouth from bad teeth. She told me that he had so little body fat left, that the cold weather alone would be enough to kill him.

Anyway, he went peacefully without so much as a whimper. I am glad I took him, I think he probably was too.
