Man Accused Of Setting Cat On Fire

Warning: This story may disturb some readers.

A Boston man has been charged with the malicious killing of a cat and arson. Earlier this month, he was arrested after setting a cat on fire and throwing it against a residence. Police said that the man has confessed to killing the cat.

“Whether it’s an attack on an animal or an attack on a person, the Boston police take these situations very seriously,” said Boston police spokesman James Kenneally.

Under state law, killing a domestic animal is punishable by up to five years in prison, and arson is punishable by up to 20 years in prison.

    Justice would dictate,the same treatment for this murderous waste of a man. feel,THE SUFFERING FOR THIS INNOCENT CREATURE.Then demand this human waste be burned at the stake. Rabid animals are deemed by society as a menace.This is a “rabid” waste of a sub human.Bet he can not wait,untill he can harm a child or the elderly. Destroy this beast,he has NOTHING to offer society.

    I hope the judge gives him 20 years.

    Many times people and animals die in arson set fires. I think the death penalty should apply for arsonists. Same for judges who release child predators only to have them kill again.

    That’s right…that bastard should be punished to the max. The death penalty would be ideal and would no doubt save the lives of this piece of filth’s future victims, both animal and human. Unfortunately, the criminal loving hypocrites won’t allow us to put these truly just laws on the books, but at any rate, I hope he gets the book thrown at him!

    YES I THINK 25 YEARS SHOULD DO IT. WHY DO SOME PEOPLE WANT TO HURT ANIMALS I WILL NEVER KNOW. I BELEIVE IN AN EYE FOR AN EYE THEY SHOULD SET THIS CREEP ON FIRE JUST LONG ENOUGH TO FEEL THE PAIN THAT THIS POOR CAT FELT. GOD BLESS YOU LITTLE ONE I HOPE YOU ARE IN CAT HEAVEN EATING LOTS OF CATNIP AND PLAYING WITH GREAT CAT TOYS. P.S I HAVE 6 CATS OF MY OWN IF ANYONE AND I MEAN ANYONE WOULD TRY TO HURT THEM GOD HELP THEM.

    I am uncapable of understanding why anyone would want to do this. It is horrible, cruel and I too wish he could be set on fire for a bit so he can see the pain he put on that poor baby.

    Who is this criminal individual? Who are his parents, his sisters and brothers, and who are his employers? Where did he go to school - which restaurants does he eat in -what shops does he use?

    Who says we can’t know? Why can’t we know? Because only when we know this would his own community - what a concept - bear down on him… “innocent until proven guilty” we say - but when a thug is seen throwing a living burning cat against the wall, communal common sense has to prevail… else we do not have a healthy FREE society. A FREE society has the freedoms to institute - and act on - common sense… between a society castrated of common sense and extreme vigilante-ism is a happy medium… it’s time we exercised that… or become a castrated society… looking to increasingly greedy and criminal lawyers to fix what ails us…

    And this is why the fathers of those 15 y.o girls in Sonoma County who set poor little 3 mo/ kitty Adam on fire - files a not guilty plea - the community wants those fathers racked up and chemically castrated along with the girls, and who’s to say that ’s not the best solution for our crazy times .. enough interventions like that will CURE animal torturers for generations to come…

    Let’s hear the fathers of those despicable girls come on to Itchmo and defend themselves - I can hear it now: “in this country we are innocent until…” which in my book .. they’d get a “sorry, that doesn’t work anymore - as this country has stripped its citizens of almost of all constitutional rights already, *so why the heck should you animal torturers get a break…”

    Get the chemical castration hook out! These monsters and their monstrous parents all hide behind court anonymity, and I have a good mind to expose who they are, where they live, where they shop, and let the people deal with them the way they should be dealt with FINALLY.
