    Default Poor Puppy

    Man arrested for breaking puppy's legs

    Wednesday, February 20, 2008


    LOS ANGELES -- Police say a 22-year-old man, reportedly despondent over a break-up with his girlfriend, has been arrested on suspicion of animal cruelty for allegedly severely injuring a pit bull puppy.
    Authorities say Steven Butcher was arrested Monday. He is accused of breaking the puppy's rear legs, breaking the dog's jaw and inflicting numerous other injuries.
    A resident who called police told officers that Butcher "was despondent over a break-up with his girlfriend and had threatened to harm a small puppy." Police say the resident had an audiotape of the suspect claiming he was hurting the dog as it was heard "yelping in pain."
    Police say officers found the dog lying under a running faucet, drenched in cold water.

    Butcher was released after posting $20,000 bail.
    Attempts to find a phone listing for Butcher were not successful.


    Yeah, I wonder WHY she broke up with him. Too bad he didn't put a gun to his head and pull the trigger instead.

    I couldn't agree more.

    There's a case here in Austin quite similar to this. Except it was a woman who set fire to the dog because of the breakup. I think she was just recently sentenced to prison for the crime.

    I don't get it.

    I'm sure our illustrious webmistress has heard this kind of thing way too many times.

    And yes, according to a lot of research and data - people who physically abuse or kill animals are just a step away from doing the same to humans. And thankfully, due to the hard work of people like Allison - the public and the justice system is becoming less tolerant of these horrible people and they're getting sentenced more strictly and more often than in the past.

    Look at Michael Vick - everyone I know kept telling me, "Oh, he's a famous football player, he'll get off with nothing but a slap on the wrist - if that." Can I tell y'all how happy I am that didn't happen and that he's being held accountable for his actions? I'm sure he'll be back on the gridiron and viewed as some sort of martyr by too many misguided fans who think it was much ado about nothing for the good 'ol boy. But in the meanwhile, he's cooling his heels and not making a living.

    As for those who think he got a raw deal - they generally fall into two categories - both of which I personally think are pathetic. First are those who think the only reason he's being held accountable is because he's black. Whatever ... playing the race card to excuse reprehensible behavior of any kind just shows a complete lack of intelligence and perpetuates the sorry state of race relations in this country today. The second group are the rabid sports fans who think that professional athletes are some kind of royalty or ought to be exempt from the very same rules and responsibilities the rest of us mere mortals must live by.

    Again ... whatever. I've long lamented a culture in which we pay those who entertain us (including professional athletes) obscene amounts of money and allow them to conduct themselves in sometimes insane ways without repercussion. I just don't get - especially the part where clueless fans support obvious criminals - Michael Jackson, Michael Vick, Britney Spears - all come to mind. What is WRONG with these people - the celebrities, athletes and especially the fans who blindly support them?!

    IMO, this guy is only 22. The older he gets, the more aggressive he will become, not only towards animals but people as well. I would hazard to guess his girlfriend left him because he was abusive.

    Breaking his legs is too temporary.
    I'll stick with my previous unspoken choice;
    1 bullet and not another thought.
