This is crazy! Will he actually serve the full 2 1/2 years? NO. Will he receive any mentally therapy for seeing "the devil in his eyes"? NO. Who is next?

A man who severely maimed a friend's dog with a chain saw because he "saw the devil" in the animal's eyes was sentenced to 2 1/2 years in jail after pleading guilty to animal cruelty charges.
It sounds like this man is seriously unwell. I think he needs a psychiatrist more than a jail term. Or maybe a little of both.

I agree. Especially the part where it said the man was crying as he tried to stop the bleeding - this man is not a sadistic animal killer, he's a sick man in need of help.

That poor sweet doggy though, what a dreadful thing. RIP Blue.

Oh God!!! Honestly!!!!!
People like that just make me want to do the same to them.The phsycho


If he tries the ' I was mentally incapacitated crap' then the prosecutors should see through that.
If he ' saw the devil ' then why did he try to bandage the poor dogs legs when
he realised he was found out?????????????

Put me within 2 foot of that and I'd show him whats what.

Well, once I took 250 lithium tablets and slit my wrists. About ten minutes afterwards, when I realised what I had done, I woke my father and told him. i did not try the `mentally incapacitated crap'. I was mentally incapacitated.

As anyone with a mental illness will tell you, you are not always in control of your faculties, and then afterwards when you discover you have done something crazy, and you're feeling normal and human again, you try to fix it.

Walk a mile in someone's shoes....

I agree, some people are just evil, I am glad he at least got jail time.

This man really needs to be locked up for a long time. Maybe not in jail, but possibly a mental health facility. I mean really, if he is in that much mental distress is jail really going to help? And when they let him out in what, say six months or so, whos to say that his next victim wouldn't be a child.

I feel so horrible for this poor pup, but IMO jail time isn't the answer for this man. A mental health facility and rehab for alcohol abuse is.

I have walked many miles in my own shoes and I would not wish anybody
to walk it too.

Sarah I am sorry you have been in that dark place.
My comment was not meant to offend anybody who
genuinely suffers from mental illness.

I believe this case just highlights a common problem.
That 'scum' did what he did under the influence of alcohol/or drugs he tried to say
'he saw the devil' when in fact if he did or thought he did then there would have
been some phsychological assessment submitted to the court in his defense.
THERE WAS NOT

He plead innocent and tried to say the dog attacked him, till he knew he had no
defense...then plead guilty to try to get a lesser sentence.

He only started crying and bandaging the dog AFTER the babysitter went across
the road to call police and when she got back that is what he was doing.

If she had not woken up when she did and called the police when she did
who knows what would have happened...there were young kids in that
house...this could have been a completely different story altogether.


There is a common misconception about people with mental illness.

People associate violent crimes with mental illness and the truth is
the incidence of violent crime by people with mental illness is NO HIGHER
than in any other average group of people....in fact people who suffer
from mental illness are more likely to be a victim of a violent crime...
because people like that 'scumbag' who don't want to accept responsibility
for their actions perceive people with mental illness as 'seeing the devil'
So when stories like what that scumbag did hits the headlines this just
adds fuel to that miconception.

He should rot in jail where he belongs.

I agree with furryferals comments above, he did lie about being attacked and he did plead innocent. The real shame is that he got the maximum sentence available which is only two and a half years
My thoughts are with the dogs owner and poor Blue running free across Rainbow Bridge

Well, when put that way, it seems a little different, doesn't it?

He was probably crying because he got caught, and trying to bandage the dog's feet to make it look like what he'd done was less serious and horrible.

Although, I do feel that anyone who attacks an innocent animal (or person or child, for that matter) has some form of mental illness.

It doesn't mean that they shouldn't be punished for what they have done, though. I'm glad he got jail time at all - too many animal abusers walk free with just a slap on the wrist for the crimes they commit.
