    I dunno, why don't you go back through and count it. By all means, give yourself something else to feel satisfied about.

    I certainly don't have time for that. If you don't stop this derailment, I'm simply going to report your posts; this is even more tiresome than usual. But I'll give you another opportunity here: Advance an ethically consistent position that permits the violent slaughter of livestock, but not of domestic pets that also asserts that it's uniquely wrong to kill such pets.

    Then don't. I really don't care what you do Agna. Report me but do bear in mind that you have been just as complicit in responding with your accusations and other assorted teenage angsty bull****.

    So have at it, sport. Just do me a favor and let me know how it works out for you, mkay?

    Perhaps the responder will view it as such. And if so, it wouldn't be any different than your threats to report me in the thread about Letterman, wherein you were effectively more complicit in the derailment than I was. But the fact of the matter is that I've attempted to shift this discussion back on-topic numerous times, but you simply refuse to reciprocate.

    It's not that cats and dogs are any more entitled to life than cows and pigs. I don't think it has anything to do with ethics...it's the WAY in which he killed the animals that is disturbing. When someone intentionally kills someone's pet, mutilates it, and does it over and over again for no particular reason...there is something psychologically wrong with them. They have all the warning signs of becoming a serial killer.
    Are you coming to bed?
    I can't. This is important.

    Correct. It demonstrates a disturbing detachment from social norms that should set off a flurry of alarms and deserves intense examination.

    If he went to a a pasture and did the same thing in the same way to future beef cattle or pigs bound for slaughter, there's no difference. His desire to kill and mutilate is the disturbing issue, not what particular animal he practiced his deviation on.

    Of course. But that would be an indication of a person merely needing medical treatment for such mental instabilities. The intensely emotional and aggravated responses posted here indicated a reaction of extreme fury instead, presumably because of the suffering inflicted on the animals in question.

    I agree with this. While I understand the anger of the people who lost their pet, I don't think he should get a prison sentence or anything like that. Obviously he needs mental help before he harms a human. I think he'd be much better off in a mental hospital than in a prison.

    I think so too, yeah.
