Nobody is talking about hurting their dogs? At most people have said they should do some jail time and that then brings into question what will happen to their dogs but nobody is saying hurt their dogs as far as I can tell.
I 100% read all that you've said. I understand what you mean about the initial framing of the situation as well. My first reply to this post is that I doubt they themselves killed the cat. It just seemed like you were only condemning others for being upset and wanting some sort of actions to be taken but you had no solutions to offer in place of the actions you were condemning. I was mostly just curious what you felt should be done.The initial framing of the situation as though they did has created a disproportionate response."
Yeah I'd actually be more pissed off if they mutilated a raccoon, I don't even like cats really. Life is life though. If you're not making jewelry or art out of its remains to in a sense honor it's life and you're not gonna bury it, leave it the fuck alone!Would any of you give a shit if it was a raccoon?"
As far as I know only 2 of the 3 have been arrested so what more do I want personally? I'd like the third dude the one who's in most of the pictures who seems really fucking amused to get put on a timeout as well. I think that piece of shit needs to go without his dope for a while so he can think about his actions.Also, they've already been arrested and charged, they're probably gonna do some time, their dogs are likely going to the pound, and they are gonna be called out and shunned (hopefully). What more do you want?"
So to ostracize them, that's it huh? Pretty lenient in my opinion.So what I'm saying is that this whole justice-avenger fantasy/cop calling bandwagon is kind of unnecessary, and it may have been better for folx to just be like "oh those kids that cut up a dead cat on Instagram? Fuck them, they're not welcome in my scene."
THIS right here, this is why they need to be dealt with above all else. Oogles already ruin shit way too fucking much as it is. So how many people are gonna run this through their mind before they pull over to give you a ride? How many kids are gonna really be in a jam and desperately need a few more bucks to get outta town or any other crisis and it's gonna take them that much longer to get there because people are viewing us as cat mutilators now.Meanwhile, Asheville locals are probably gonna become more hostile toward travellers."
Would I give a shit if someone posted selfies of themselves smiling with a raccoon where they stuck rigs in its neck and slit its stomach open and left it tied to a fucking fence???? Yes. Yes, I would. It's just blatant disrespect for a life. But these scumfucks probably don't even respect their own life, so it doesn't surprise me.....It's one thing to utilize road kill or a hunted animal for it's meat/fur/bones and it's quite another to post instagram pics with it's mutilated body like they did. It shows a lot about what kind of human trash they are, and honestly I hope they lose their dogs and someone adopts them.Please reread what I have said.

this all fuckin dayWould I give a shit if someone posted selfies of themselves smiling with a raccoon where they stuck rigs in its neck and slit its stomach open and left it tied to a fucking fence???? Yes. Yes, I would.
What's your source? There has been zero confirmation of necropsy results in the press. Also, AFTER you posted this, new charges of animal cruelty were added. As of 3 weeks from their arrest, they have been released and issued a new court date and their charges of animal cruelty still stand. The judge has ordered zero contact with animals. Thank fucking good.And AFAIK there was an autopsy performed on the cat and it died of rat poison, likely from eating a poisoned rat.
I guess I'm trying to determine if there's a shred of legitimacy to it. Which I don't think there is. Waiting to hear printed results straight from the coroners mouth.the user stated:
which means, 'as far as i know'. which would make this an anecdotal statement, rather than a statement of fact based on sources.
No need for the hostility man . I never said what they did was right or painted them as saints. My point was that they didn't kill the fucking cat. It was roadkill already. If you think I painted a picture of them as saints you can GTFO with that shit. My ONLY points was that they ain't the killers and there dogs are well. That is all . I said my pieceExactly, @roughdraft .
Beyond that, I think the majority of the people who have gotten involved in this thread tend to believe they might not have been the cat killers themselves. But this isn't just about whether or not those individuals killed the cat themselves.
@Bryan Fucking Jones You know those dogs that are so well taken care of that you mentioned? I bet you fucking anything that these oogles would be hella pissed if their dogs died of even natural causes and before they could give them a proper burial some assholes came along and stabbed them up with heroin needles and took pictures like this.
Bet you ANYTHING they'd be out for revenge and everything else if that's how they found their dogs. That's what this is about, disrespecting the life of that cat and the owners and so much more. If they killed the cat that's just worse is all.
Don't try to paint it like it was one of them casually meandering down the road, sees what might be a cat in distress.. wait, is that.. is that poor cat dead or can I help it? Hmm, lemme try to first find a stick and I'll just give it a little budge to see if it's alive before I get my hands all corpsy.
They stuck rigs in it's neck, jabbed their knives into it's guts and who knows what else off camera. They're not saints, GTFO with that shit!
