Many law enforcement officers and
scientists now feel the foundation
for violence has been overlooked for
too long. Without a doubt there is a
link between animal cruelty and
violence against people. Remember
this, "those who abuse animals will
one day abuse people."
First, we must establish act of
cruelty. "A person commits the crime
of cruelty to a dog or cat if he or
she intentionally tortures, skins,
cruelly beats, injures without
cause, mutilates, or deprives of
necessary sustenance or shelter
(four sided structure)." Sustenance
shall include fresh water, food
daily, free of insects and pests,
and medical care.
Every killer who went inside a
school and killed another student
started with animals. Most cruelty
begins before a child turns eight.
This is one conduct disorder that
can be corrected.
