I was in a locally owned pet store in Ludlow (MA) and a mother and two out of control (that belong in DSS custody) kids come in with a kitten to buy some stuff for the poor thing. Those kids were so rough with that cat I was about two seconds away from calling the police. Those kids were not just teasing it, they were outright cruel. The kids were about 4-5 years old.
I told the manager to pull the security tapes and call the police after they left but I feel it fell on deaf ears.
I am a cat and dog lover myself and those kids deserve to locked away in DYS until they turn 18. A cat is an innocent little creature. Those kids (even though they were about kindergarten/1st grade age) are probably on the journey from cradle to cell. -- I've experienced ImOn (when they were McLeod USA), Mediacom, Comcast, and Time Warner and I currently have DirecTV. They are much better than broadcast TV.
