PSYCHOPATHS, not just murderers, start their "careers" this way! How many times does this kind of animal abuse have to happen before the law finally recognizes the obvious?
He is a future serial killer, and needs to be locked up for a very long time.
Premeditated murder. 4 years is to little, and you know that a 17 isn't going topay a $20K fine. Forget the fine and add 10 years...
I agree!!...he is sicko!!...poor dog!!
He needs to feel what the dog was going thro.
What a big, brave 17 year old, on his way to becoming a big, brave man who will no doubt go on to exact more cruelty on our animals. He needs to be put away, period. Poor Athena. Rest in peace, baby.
He should get life
In that case someone need to twist his stupid head.
This kind a person will go on to hurt or kill babies & people. This truly made me sick to my stomach. If it wasn't for my dog, anyway animals, are worth a lot more than what this guy is getting. Way more! What about 20 to 30 years plus a much bigger fine. That would make others think about doing anything to someone's pet or any animal. Since we really can't do the same thing to him.
I want to see a lot more harsher penalties for people who kill poor defenseless animals
So evil A lowlife degenerate. He should be punished to the full extent for murdering this innocent sweet creature.
