Things like this bring tears to my eyes & heart. And, it is FRIGHTENING to me that this young man shows such depraved behavior. Such callous behavior toward defenseless animals is unconscionable. And, as I understand it, often a first step to further violence. The animals have no voice, but ours. We must not sit silently because that means acceptance. As Ghandi said, "Be the change that you wish to see in the world." We should applaud the young, brave girl who acted & turned this young man in. The boy needs help. This behavior is sick.
I hope when u say young brave girl who turned him in you're not talking about the sister who filmed it. She's as bad as he is
I only watched the first part because it made me sick after he shot the poor little, curious, non-threatening, raccoon. In the beginning, the girl was almost crying & telling the guy not to shoot. If she was laughing as everyone says...I agree, of course. She is also sick. I am thankful she turned him in, regardless. THAT took an act of courage, because if he did this to these defenseless, caged animals, I wonder if he's an abuser in the home? As others have suggested, violence against...

I couldn't watch any. I just know that Jocye is right that hehavior towards animals will end of turning into the same thing for people.
Poor excuses for human beings. I am ashamed to be in the human race with such disgraces.
Have to add that I actually scaled one abusive neighbour's fence and trespassed to save one animal from certain death, by tossing the trap over the fence and carrying it to a safe place to release it ......all done after ONE in the morning.........after phoning authorities and getting no help.
I have an abundance of psychopaths where I live. I have risked getting in trouble and my life taking animals from them.police do nothing. they threatened to lock me up (trespassing,theft of animals) aspca does nothing. Keep saying they must be caught in the act.How will that happen if they ignore my pleas for help? Thank you for helping those animals.never give up.
I blame the parents for not teaching their kids moral values and kindness & compassion. They have to be taught a harsh lesson they will never forget.
Also, since his sister was filming it, she is just as guilty. It seemed the brother was using some sort of pellet gun, which is not sudden death for these poor defenseless animal's; they suffer. This just makes me so angry. I will be calling tomorrow when the office opens to express my horror over this.
Ted Crowell....WTF! You are obviously sick in the head! This punk trapped animals to torture them! I don't mind hunting if it's done legally and if you eat the meat. Real hunters do not condone torturing animals. They do their best to get a clean shot so animal won't suffer. I really feel bad for your kids to have a father who thinks it's okay to torture animals.
So, when I'm hunting and I inadvertently make a bad shot and the animal suffers as the result, I should then be prosecuted? Your a fucking joke! Take a look at the film, and take off your rosé colored glasses. This boy takes his time, places the barrel of the gun carefully and then discharges the weapon! He still makes a poor shot but that doesn't constitute a crime.
He was arrested, this is a victory in my eyes.
I live in Melbourne, FL and our laws are not that tough for animal abusers, I hope this brings change and he is prosecuted as an adult. Anyone who can do this is twisted mentally, he needs psych help and evaluation. Normal people just don't do this!!! :/
They do not need psych help, they need to have the devil removed from them!! This is satan incarnate!!! If you think he and his demons do not live in humans, you are extremely wrong. Only a devil would do things like this and man does not have a cure for this evil!!!
This idiot is beyond help! He is a coward, sadistic maniac, who needs to be treated, charged and punished like one. I am sick and tired of so many evil people, who bring nothing but pain and agony to others, be it animals or humans. I for one stand for all animals as they have no voice and are treated like they don't matter, but the filth of earth who commits the crime gets country club treatment in prison while my tax money is paying for all the comfort for his sorry ass... Really!
Charges should be brought against the sister also, for not getting help for these poor animals and not reporting it to the parents or anyone ..and where were the parents? What kind of people are these? SICK SICK SICK folks
I have called. Everyone needs to call. Those kids are dangerous. The officers seem to be acknowledging that. They are investigating. I will be following this case as we all should be. Do not forget!
