Amy Van Hagan whom I do not know said it all and PERFECTLY. She should be removed from the bench ASAP.
She needs to be put on a list for never getting another animal. If I was he neighbor I would really watch my pets. I have lived in IOWA need I say more.
I do think the squeaky wheel gets the grease-so you know I believe in the power of the voice-I just wish I could put the circumstances of cases involving children in here-but it is agains the law-but all you who are for animal rights please consider being the voice of a child in cases of abuse and neglect contact Paula Lance with Lancaster-Guardian ad Litem program (Chester doesn't have a manager at the moment )or Blondean Funderburk with the state GAL office-S.C. Guardian ad Litem ---just google it and you'll get there-thanks
Retire the Judge or hang HIM ..Painfully obvious his days at making good decisions are over...
Boy what kind of Judges do they have out in the mid west? They aren't to sharp are they!
Is this another stand your ground? Maybe the dog licked her too much? What is wrong with this sick society?
The woman should of went to jail!!! This just makes me so sick and mad that she went free what the hell is wrong with this judge???
Punishment should fit the Crime.
The law should be clear and easy- If you hurt or kill an animal or child, then whatever you did to the animal or child will be done to you! An eye for an eye would put an end to all of this BS, because the people that hurt animals and children are GIANT MEEEOOOWS, which is why they take their anger out on those that are weaker and can't defend themselves!
Get rid of that judge!!!
