    How many kids have killed other HUMANS by the time they are 18? I don't approve of torturing animals needlessly, but its a drop in the bucket compared to what humans will do to other humans.

    Needless killing is needless killing... I don't care if it's animal or human. Both feel pain, so why the need to put it on a level of hiearchy?

    In reading up on this issue, it appears that animal killers are usually exposed to domestic violence and that often they are taking out their aggressions on animals. I am guessing this kid is receiving physical abuse from one of his parents.

    Re: 18-year old charged in Florida cat mutilations

    I remember when I was growing up there was a kid who lived in a neighborhood nearby who used to steal people's cats and then skin them alive and perform various tortures on them. He didn't grow up to be a serial killer, he just grew up to be a lazy asshole.

    If you've ever seen the movie Gummo, the two main characters in that movie were kids who go around killing neighborhood cats only to sell them to the local butcher so that they could get money to buy milk shakes and glue to sniff.

    I don't think that killing cats in this way is necessarily a sign of a person being a serial killer later on. It does tell me though that there are probably problems at home and/or school and this kid is using animals to take his aggressions out on. Adolescent boys doing horrible things to animals and insects certainly isn't anything new.

    Easy fix for that. Tie him down, smear tuna fish all over his body, and let loose the cats.

    If you spend your free time torturing animals for kicks there is something monstrously wrong with you; end of story.

    Young boys killing small animals is not out of the ordinary. If its other peoples cats, obviously there are charges that can be made, since the animal is someone else property. But I mean, little boys hunt down small animals all the time. I don't know how many squirrels, frogs, birds, and other various small animals I shot at, up at my grandpa's cabin when I was a youngster.

    Hmm, how about destroying a nest of ants with firecrackers.

    Or burning ants with a magnifying glass, or pulling the wings off of flies, or the legs off of grasshoppers....

    I think there's a difference between small boys putting salt on a snail vs 18 year old hunting down the neighbors pet and skinning it...obviously.
