farking scumbags. Remember when people like this were an extreme rarity, now they pair up and wander the streets.

That was an awful lot of heartstring pulling for one article, but since arrests were made I'm going to figure it's true despite that.

So for the record, allow me to say, fark those guys, enjoy prison.

"When he got slapped that down it shot stuff outside. So, I don't doubt the turtle died,"

Indeed, Blough. Indeed.

This would make it so hard to be a judge. To have to just sit there and not be able to make people like this understand just what kind of pond scum they really are, and have to follow the sentencing guidelines that don't give the leeway they should. And if you actually do anything at all, they just feel sorry for themselves, never smart enough to think about why they are regarded like that, no way to get through to them.

You know who should have been beaten? Both the author and anyone who was supposed to proofread that farking mess.

"They said there was three guys out here killing at turtle," said Blough.

"The swelling is going down," said Blough who pointed to where they guy kicked and punched him in the back of his head.

"My husband who is disabled tried to save a poor animals life and he gets beaten up," said Jennifer Blough.

Police say a responding officer last saw the turtle in the water with is a cloud of blood.


And that's not even taking into account the usage of "guys" all through the piece that wasn't quoting the witnesses, police or victims. Jesus, I would have failed 8th grade English for that.

I hope those ugly sons of bastards get thrown down to the ground butt first as hard as possible. This way, they'll feel the pain of their asses getting wrecked and won't die right away. Then throw then in a sewer to drown or have the ninja turtles have their way with them.

Turtles are pretty farking tough; they assume it died, but it might come up fine in a few months. Still animal cruelty any way you put it, but I'm glad the turtle ended up disappearing into the tides.

Here's a much better article:  http://www.clickorlando.com/news/daytona-navy-veteran-assaulted-tryi​ng​-to-stop-men-from-killing-turtle-police-say

It was missing a leg and floating motionless in the water surrounded in a pool of its own blood.  It died.

The farktards were picking it up above their heads and slamming the turtle onto the concrete trying to break its shell while still alive.  The three "humans" that should be Darwin'd then decided to beat up a disabled veteran who had the audacity to try and get them to stop.

Maximum sentence in Florida for repeatedly torturing an animal and/or killing it is 5 years in prison (third degree felony).  Aggravated battery is 15.

So hopefully they end up with about 20 years in prison.  They should end up near the max given the callous nature of both offenses. Since they are 23 and 18, I'm perfectly fine with them being in prison until they are 43 and 38.  The third kid was 16.

...despite my recent post to the contrary, I find myself in agreement that this article was poorly written; I have nothing to add, except that Florida is a remnant of Gondwana, which was grafted onto the NA continental plate.

Farking a-holes.  I was leading a car club drive over Hawk Mountain (a nice place to go if you are ever in eastern PA) and on the way down the western side I stopped a caravan of 20+ cars because a turtle was in the road and a combine harvester coming the other way was going to crush it.  Just a standard american box turtle, but hey... respect the life.  Picked it up and placed it where it appeared to be heading.  Guy at the back of the line saw what was happening as well as some rangers and they stopped all traffic.   Probably pissed some people off that weren't part of the group but I didn't care.

These guys are well on their way to moving up from turtles and beating a guy to killing people (if they haven't already)

One easy way to spot people who should never be allowed out in public is if they torture animals and assault disabled people.  Just lock them up for life.

[img.fark.net image 376x200]


They're no kind of god, puny or otherwise. They don't even deserve that...

Maybe load them up with psychotropics, force them to suffer over and over again, unless they care for a small, hardy animal that's caged with them. The animal dies? They get beaten for 2 straight hours, then locked in solitary for a month, while another rat, or turtle or guinea pig, is prepared to give them another chance to show empathy.

Three strikes and they're put on death row, no appeal.

I'm not as optimistic, considering the turtle was bleeding badly, lost a leg, and reportedly had stuff "shoot out" when it was thrown on the pavement. But after the election I guess anything is possible.

We do need people to pick up garbage along highways, and shovel poop, so locking them up , only, is wasting a valuable resource. Until we have garbage and diggerbots, or course.

Anyone who will torture an animal is capable of treating a human being in the same way and this story is a perfect illustration of the point.
