I am rereading Tom Sayer now. I didn't remember the part where Huck Finn and Tom were playing with a dead cat. (didn't say they killed him. Just played with the dead animal.)

I was shocked at that. Contemplating how far we have come as a society.

Today I RTFA, and read these comments. The more we change, the more we stay the same.

Humans are animals. With all the in-bred cruelty that implies. Nor am I excusing myself. I too would gladly hurt this person if I caught him in the act. At least I am a little different. I would put him down humanely.

snailbarf: Calmamity: End him.

hey you guys have something in common! you both like to kill things.


Yeah, I put "kittens" above "future serial killer and/or rapist and/or Fortune 500 CEO" on my list of things I feel bad about killing.

Way above.

I'm funny like that.

HindiDiscoMonster: mbillips: theflatline: spare the rod, spoil the child.

these little shiats have been raised in a Dr. Spock world because their parents never gave them any real punishment.

here is a bit from this article http://www.wnd.com/2009/01/87179/

In 1946, Dr. Benjamin Spock first published his infamous book "Common Sense Book of Baby and Child Care," which was unlike any that came before it. Instead of stressing the importance of teaching self-denial and respect for authority, Spock discouraged directive training and emphasized accommodating children's feelings and catering to their preferences. No longer did children learn they could endure Brussels sprouts and suffer through daily chores. Using Spock's approach, parents began to feed self-indulgence instead of instilling self-control - homes were becoming child-centered. As parents elevated children's "freedom of expression" and natural cravings, children became more outspoken, defiant and demanding of gratification. In fact, they came to view gratification as a right.

Yessirree, nothing's more likely to dispense reasonable child rearing advice than World Nut Daily.

Spock counteracted the really stupid child-care books of the early 20th century, which focused on rigid toilet-training and feeding schedules, and discouraged parents from showing physical affection to their kids. What he mainly did was advise parents to use their own best judgment, instead of listening to quacks.

yeah... it's turned out soo well today.


Because every parent is reading Spock's book, and following is directions.

I have one parent who never showed even the slightest sign of affection to me the entire time I grew up, and another who showed constant affection.  I know who is responsible for molding the better parts of my responsibility, and who is responsible for molding the worse parts.  And "showing constant affection" doesn't mean "letting me run wild and do whatever the hell I want."  The opposite, in fact.  She was the one who would show disappointment when I did something wrong, and that carried weight.  Dad never showed anything. I could have tortured cats all day long and he wouldn't have cared.  So long as I wasn't interfering with the TV.

So yeah, it's all Spock's fault.

Portrait of a future serial killer. I find that people of this sort who have no regard for the life of animals often lack the ability to form meaningful bonds with people as well. I'm not one of those animal rights activists, but really, kill kittens out of boredom and then take pictures of yourself playing with the dead kittens? That is sick beyond any measure, I wish he could be executed for that, he is a worthless waste of air.

Every time you kill a kitten, God masturbates.

Kibbler: Because every parent is reading Spock's book, and following is directions.


All it took was one generation to follow it... then it was passed on generation to generation more and more extreme each iteration... you knew that though.

I have one parent who never showed even the slightest sign of affection to me the entire time I grew up, and another who showed constant affection. I know who is responsible for molding the better parts of my responsibility, and who is responsible for molding the worse parts. And "showing constant affection" doesn't mean "letting me run wild and do whatever the hell I want." The opposite, in fact. She was the one who would show disappointment when I did something wrong, and that carried weight. Dad never showed anything. I could have tortured cats all day long and he wouldn't have cared. So long as I wasn't interfering with the TV.

So, you had one parent at one extreme and one parent at the other... so all households were that way. Sorry but no. Even if that premise held weight, the mother's traditional role has always been the sensative one and the father was the one you didn't want to piss off. In nature, it's called balance. All sugar and no sour is cloyingly sweet... All sour and no sugar is just as terrible. If a balance is struck, you have a happy medium.

So yeah, it's all Spock's fault.

yup... you got that right at least.

This thread will get more comments than the one about two black kids who killed a white human being because they were bored.

I saw it was a Chicago Tribune article, and thought, oh no, this news is probably coming out of Indiana.  Never mind that Cook and its surrounding counties have 7.5 million people while Indiana only has 6.5 million.  Never mind that Chicago media believes that the world ends at the state line.  Never mind the weirdness emanating from Wisconsin.

It was Indiana.  East Chicago, to be precise.  Granted, East Chicago is the heart of Da Region, a part of the state that identifies more closely with Chicago than Indianapolis, but it's still Indiana.  (You can tell by the gun laws.)
  So...

I CAN HAZ INDIANA TAG?

Good for him.  Feral cats (aka kittens in back alleys) are a invasive scourge of nature far worse than pythons in the everglades and should be destroyed.  They kill over 1 billion native songbirds each year in the US alone, not to mention innumerable native rodents, reptiles, and amphibians.

Came to say, that child needs to be put away somewhere. But your advice works well for me.

Three down, millions to go.

I can't speak for the city where he lives, but around here there are no leash laws for cats so they're allowed to roam free, even if they're feral. The only time they'll come out to pick one up is if it's dead or hurt. I could never bring myself to kill them like that, but I won't lose any sleep over someone else doing it.

If you damn cat lovers feel so strongly about it, get your asses out there and collect up a hundred strays and give them a home, I'm sure there are plenty to be had in and around your town/city.

2nd thought: go to the local shelter and hug all the kittens.

To be fair though, one is a remorseless killing machine with no regard or compassion for the sanctity of life.

The other is some psychotic brat.


Hahahaha.

That. He's not killing them because they're a nuisance. He did so because he was bored. And then he played with the dead corpses and posted pics on Facebook.

Your idea of balance is roughly as follows:

Put one foot in a bucket full of ice water.

Put other foot in bucket of boiling water.

Happy medium!

This is why I'm so glad I don't (and won't) have kids. I see crap like this and those idiots in Oklahoma and just shake my head.

But hey, they all have excuses, I was bored, I was picked on, daddy doesn't love me.

Yeah, Yeah, Yeah -> Cry me a river

My dad nearly killed me, hasn't made me want to (nearly) kill him
  my perfect revenge is that I'm an only child and guess who gets to pick out the nursing home
  Muahahahahahahahahahahahahaha

Except the kittens have more of a soul than the kid will ever have. I also have no problem with "End him". He shows all the signs of a psychopath.

Richard "The Iceman" Kuklinski said he would capture kittens and throw them into the boiler and watch them die through the glass when he was a boy.  So, you do have a point.

Yes, of course. Everyone knows that beating the shiat out of your child will make them a well-adjusted, non-violent adult.

It's obvious who the pussy is.

I've shot dozens of ditch cougars with bow and BB gun both. Damn crazy cat lady across the street feeds strays, herd constantly needs thinning. Sounds like this kid did it for "fun" instead.
 
2013-08-21 08:19:12 PM
Did anyone think of Steve-arino from American Dad (not posting pic even though it's a cartoon, just in case)? Steve's clone who received all his parenting from Stan (super-strict) and his brain eventually snapped and went crazy.
 
2013-08-21 08:26:54 PM
I volunteer to do something about this shiatbag. I'm looking to learn more about using a bow and arrows, so my aim will need time to improve, but I'm sure I'll do it in eventually.

Cats in an alley = domestic!?

Did the cats have a collar?

Feral cats are NOT domestic cats.  Feral cats are animals that crossed the line into invasive predator species.

RoLleRKoaSTeR: Cats in an alley = domestic!?


Having to remove a nuisance  =  killing animals because your bored?!

Feral cats exist, and yea they need to be removed.

But shooting any animal "because you're bored" and taking pictures of said animal and putting them on facebook is inexcusable.
