Column Headline – “Indifference to Cruelty Cannot Be Excused”

Great headline – “Indifference to Cruelty Cannot Be Excused.” I found it over a column on the Richmond Times-Dispatch website , out of Virginia.

Columnist A. Barton Hinkle rightfully points out our laws and punishments are far too lenient, for his focus in the column – in Virginia. But that state is far from being alone in this tragedy.

Hinkle notes only three of 10 people convicted of dog-fighting felonies in Virginia in 2009 actually served time, and only one served as much as 24 months.

Torturing animals takes a particular mentality and state of mind and individuals with that state of mind should be out in the world coming into contact with innocent people and animals.
