Indicted for Dog Slaughter!

A watchdog to bite the perpetrators! I will apologize up front. I am angry and I’m not going to be very nice, or civil even.

This picture came from www.theage.com.au (via Yahoo!) and I hope they won’t yell at me for borrowing it. This little guy looks as angry as me and it seemed appropriate!

I have just about had it with the criminal element! This incident was the last straw for me when I heard about it. The incident in question apparently happened at the end of December but it wasn’t until recently that the media focused on it and I was able to hear about it first hand. That’s not necessarily a good thing. It’s a sickening story but there’s an article in the Honolulu Star Bulletin that gives the series of events more clearly and with the most detail.

Warning: If you’re sensitive to animal cruelty and/or have a weak stomach, don’t read it!

Although this is technically old news, I am even angrier now! These men confessed and now they go to court and plead not guilty?!? What?!? I’d like to throw their attorney in there with them! I wasn’t going to even talk about this because it was so nauseating. But, since I’m angry and still have one more angry story that I will talk about in a couple of days, I figured I might as well face it and get this one off my chest.

This crime is not only a legal issue, it is a social issue as well! Wayne Pacelle, President and CEO of The Humane Society of the United States, says it best in his blog article, Betrayal of Trust. I received an email from the Online Communications Department of the Humane Society’s mainland office that informed me about Mr. Pacelle’s article. Thank you, Meghan, for reaching out!

I wouldn’t waste tax payer money on these disgusting freaks. They did it. We know the did it. They confessed that they did it. What’s left? Lock them up and nail them to the full extent of the law! Sick bastards! We’ve got a new law that was long overdue so we should put it to work! I was not able to talk to anyone at our Humane Society office but I read in another article that they are doing some investigating into it as well.

    I’ve been following the story since it first broke. I just didn’t have the heart (or the stomach) to blog it. I realize we’re dealing with different cultural practices, but these men knew it was illegal and against societal norms in Hawaii to do what they did. I’m disgusted – and keeping my dog securely at home behind a locked gate.

    I wasn’t going to talk about it either because it defied any sense of reason or decency for me. They lived and worked here — cultural differences should NOT have even entered into it! I’m not going to go to India and steal a cow and chop it up for steak some evening!

    At the very least, it was very disrespectful of our culture, extreme “no class” and, no matter how you look at it, it was still theft!

    It’s stories like these, along with the slaughter of an innocent child that happened recently makes one think, what in the hell is this world coming too!!! As far as I’m concerned, they should hang all of these bastards. NO MERCY, NO MERCY, NO MERCY!!!!! Like it says in the Bible; “an eye for an eye”. I know it’s hard for you Evie to blog about stories such as these, but we all must realize that this world, as beautiful as it may seem at times, is also filled with the lowest of the low!! Real scumbags that should never ever see the light of day ever again. They should lock them all up forever!!! Now that I finally got that all out of my system (after many restless nights), how was your day?

    Thank you, Rod, for your comment and for braving the article. Things are still restless and I’m sure they will be until after the court cases for all of these recent events are over. Heaven forbid any of us should get called for jury duty any time soon. I’d be dismissed instantly! Well, by the defense I would be anyway! Bet on it!
