    I don't know if it is still the case, but when I lived in Oregon (for about 10 years, throughout the 1990s), the "penalty" for abusing or even intentionally killing a dog or other animal was so negligible that it was laughable. Something like a smallish fine and that was it. Completely shocked me when I learned about it, and still does.

    No idea what the penalty is here in California...

    Though I fully understand the impulse to tear rapists, murderers and animal & domestic abusers limb from limb, the problem with capital punishment is that it is nowhere near impartial. In recent years alone, 123 people have been released from death row due to mistaken convictions—but many more have been murdered—by the state.

    I could post many reliable stats to support this; here's just a brief list: https://www.aclu.org/capital-punishm...th-penalty-101

    As violence and misogyny are now played for sex and entertainment in most of the "action" movies so beloved by the U.S. populace, and more and more children are almost entirely screen-bred, I believe we're in dire need of intensive real-world empathy training in elementary school and beyond to avoid a real decline in our civic safety, with several generations now of too many kids who just never learned to care much. I know nobody's ever going to fund this in our political climate in the U.S., but I'm convinced that elementary school kids are old enough to and should have intensive, daily hands-on fieldwork to learn that what makes you important in the world isn't your looks or your wallet, but your ability to help: at an animal shelter, community cleanups and gardens, recycling centers and nursing homes.

    Contributed. Hope he's on the mend. Humans can be the worst animal in the world.

    That is disgusting. I cannot wrap my head around that. An eye for an eye and some serious karma for that horrible excuse for a human being.

    Laurie, I have personally known people who deserve capital punishment. I'm not talking in abstract here, murderers, rapists, and murderer/rapists. People who have been unapologetic about their crimes and who would commit them again given the chance.

    Every one has their own opinion, but to quote the great Ron White. " In Texas if you kill somebody well kill you back! If 5 or more people witness you do it you get to go to the front of the line. In my state were putting in an express lane."

    I am so unhappy when a precious animal that has no protection other than a human is harmed.

    I am so tired of the way we here in the US view punishment for criminals. My grandfather once witnessed a state hanging. He told me the eyes popped out, the tongue was longer than what he would have thought and he never broke the law!

    Even though it seems harsh we have to change our stance people think anything goes because we don't complete the sentence.....the Constitution gives specific due process...state courts, then supreme court once the sentence is up held then sorry bye bye....

    A more stringent system is needed when you can go to prison and get food, exercise, all the conveniences why not?

    I bust m @ss every day to put food on the table, I live by the laws of this country, I pay my bills. It's time to make life tough for criminals and stop the madness
