Arrrrgh. Now I'm gonna be humming that damn song all day. Thanks, subby.

heh, like that song by the band "Flock of Seagulls"- 'I Ran (So Far Away)'.

So he ran? he ran so far a-waaaaa-eee-aaaay?

This person seems like a really sick person that shouldn't be around animals, much less other human beings.

The only reason I know this song is because of the ads for GTA: Vice City.

A friend of mine ran into some seagulls by accident had it stuck in his blazer's grill for a week. I also did this once with no chance of avoiding them. Made me sad. Lousy birds will sit on roads in the early mornings until someone almost hit 'em.

That's a tough case to prove, usually they fly away when a car is approaching them, he could rely on the George Costanza defense "I thought we had a deal with the seagulls ..."

Two gulls?
While it is a start, this guy ,on the face of one sided report, is a very real danger to his animal friends.
I recommend some bonding time, say, walk home from Mt Rainier.
When he gets back, he will have a new and different appreciation for animals, 'specially bears.
Mayhaps they will treat him well.

So, at the mall I used to work at in North Carolina there would periodically be a massive flock of seagulls in the parking lot before the mall opened. Every now and then I would drive through them. I never hit a single one. They would fly up about 8 feet in the air and then drop right back down behind me. It was a fairly impressive effect, like a blanket of birds.

So, what I'm saying is that he was either driving very fast or there's something about Florida that makes the birds as dumb as the people.

/Amazingly, my car never got pooped on

So the guy has a known history of severe anger problems, displayed exceptional violence and cruelty as a result, but, defying all common sense, he's still allowed to walk around (and drive around...) in public because "it was just a dog"?

First of all, the guy clearly has serious mental problems and is clearly of a violent temperament and dangerous. Second of all, he's from Florida.

If NASA needs something to do, I'd like to suggest railguns. Then we can not only perform deep space delivery without launches, but we can fling useless hunks of flesh like this lunatic into deep space at the same time.

This type of brazen animal cruelty, even if you're a total dick and don't care about the animals, should be grounds for involuntary and indefinite confinement to a mental institution. People like him have no business being in public with properly functioning human beings.

Where does it end? Are we going to do that to every person who behaves in a violent and antisocial manner?

That's just cruel and racist. People can rehabilitate, and should be given the chance to do so.

At the time, a witness told police Ulsch owned four dogs in two months. Two vanished and one supposedly ran away.

IIRC, people with this kind of psychopatic behaviour cannot be rehabilitated. Doesn't mean they should be killed outright, but controls do need to be placed on them. Jail time isn't ideal, but it is a form of temporary control. The question is, what does society do with him once he's served his sentence ?

To my recollection, animal torture is one of the three warning signs of sociopathy, the other two being pyromania and bed-wetting to an unreasonably high age. As was said upthread: today, animals; tomorrow, people.

Also, he should be legally prohibited from owning any animal, even a goldfish, even if he never does anything nasty again. Hell, I've called the city over a neighbour who insisted on leaving her dogs outside on nights with lows down to -30C--why no, they didn't have a kennel or any such thing--so for this guy... well... I honestly don't know how I would have reacted. Maybe phoned it in; maybe just gone to take care of it with the nearest heavy object. It probably would depend on which action would be less helpful: I have a knack for that.

That's an entirely different argument. The United States doesn't try to rehab people, we try to lock them up. My statement works just as well regardless of which method you try.

And, yes, people who repeatedly act in exceptionally violent and antisocial ways should be locked up (or rehabbed if you live in a modern, non-barbaric country run by people who don't look like they're one stray lighting bolt short of stripping naked and sacrificing a lamb to the sky) ... I fail to see how that's even a question. Especially when you're talking about something like this where the guy is exhibiting classic sociopathic tendencies.

I thought from yesterday's thread you were an average, run-of-the-mill idiot. Now I see you're just being a dick (or "trowling" as the kids call it). Good show. However, as this "trowling" trend is really just a way for dumb people to pretend they're smart on the intertubes, I fear I must still add you to ignore as otherwise your "trowling" will only clutter my screen. Sorry, chap.

Some people can, but not everyone. And even of those who can, fewer choose to. Sure, an argument could be made that our culture doesn't place as high an emphasis on rehabilitation as it does on punishment and that has an effect on who's likely to try and get better about controlling their impulses to break the law, but that still doesn't do much about the problem now. And, frankly, if we're a culture that threatens punishment for transgressions (which we are, because we're human and do that sort of thing), when people transgress we better punish them. Even if we're also trying to go the "rehab as many people as we can" route, following through on a threat of punishment is pretty important.
