please write, call and email. I dont care how old he is the laws for the town strictly state that what he attempted to do was illegal, and in front of a 5 year old child too...

BTW, here is the Massechusetts State Law that Chief Tomasian is ignoring, if you would like to cite it in your letter.

MASSACHUSETTS GENERAL LAWS

TITLE I. CRIMES AND PUNISHMENTS

CHAPTER 272. CRIMES AGAINST CHASTITY, MORALITY, DECENCY AND GOOD ORDER

i don't care if he's ninety....he deserves to be punished for what he did.

Many thanks to Ms. Hill for saving that little baby!

Yes that is ridiculous! A lot of things used to be done that are now illegal!

No one should be above the law! What if the guy was 22 but came from a country where drowning cats was the norm? Would he be above the law too?

This is not at all uncommon. In cases of animal cruelty they are always making excuses for the criminals and going out of their way to let them off the hook.

I'm going to raise a stink about this and I hope everyone who sees this thread will too!

I think what this shows is that we need to keep up the efforts to spay/neuter stray and feral cats...that way there will not be any kittens for this man to drown.

That's just awful. how can someone do that to another living creature....it's why I don't understand hunting either.

God bless that Lady

Thank god she was there to save the kitty

________________________________________________________________________________ ___



That Sick has been doing that 'for all his life'.

He should have been put to sleep at birth......But at least he hasn't got long before he takes his place in hell





It really bothers me that there are decent kind caring people who have no chance in life and die so young or tragically.

And then life Belches out a Disgusting example of a human like THAT!!!!

Well, I read the subsequent letters to the editor & they were good ones. However, there seems to be no public response by area rescue groups about assisting Mr. Thayer in removing feral cats from his property. Even the neighbors should group together and create a solution; until then, future cats & kittens face the same dangers from that elderly CRIMINAL & his offspring!! And why didn't Child Protective Services investigate - I'm sure that killing a companion animal in front of a small child is illegal; shouldn't Mr. Thayer's granddaughter be held accountable for allowing her child to be exposed to that?
As for the malarky about "that's how they did it in his day", well, "back then" a 45 yo man could marry a 13 or 15 yo. girl & it was "better to be an old man's darling than a young man's fool": NOWADAYS, we call it for what it is - PEDOPHILIA!!
