Man Gets 18 Months For Forcing His Daughter To Kill A Cat

29 08 2008

This is the sort of stuff that I find scary.

A man was sentenced to 18 months in prison after admitting that he forced his 7-year-old daughter to kill the family cat by holding a knife in her hand and making her stab the pet.

“I am extremely sorry for what I did,” Danield J. Collins said during his sentencing Thursday. “Everything is my responsibility.”

Collins, 39, pleaded guilty to a felony count of animal cruelty and two felony counts of neglect of a dependent. In exchange, prosecutors dropped three other felony charges.

“This is not civilized conduct,” Judge Robert Barnet Jr. said as he sentenced Collins.

Under the plea agreement, Collins must receive counseling and attend parenting classes and substance abuse treatment. The judge also prohibited Collins from owning a pet.

Collins was arrested March 13 after police said he forced his daughter to stab Boots, the family’s 8-month-old cat. The girl and Collins’ 11-year-old son said their father ordered them to stab the cat because he wanted them to “learn to kill.”

Why in the HELL would this man do this? He makes his kids kill a cat?

I don’t get people sometimes.

There’s no real limit to the depravity of hairless apes. The infinite combinations of neural networks coupled with the pressures of a world in which they were never meant to fully function creates some very odd patterns… In short, people are F***ed Up.

Superpixel sums up my thoughts perfectly. Trying to figure out why people do what they do is just too tiring an exercise.

I’m gonna clock out, go home, drink a beer, and pet my doggie.

People who’ve been brutalized as children think the world requires brutalizing children as preparation. Or maybe he’s just a sick f#@*(. Or both.

I think about the natural gentleness of most children, and this makes me sick. They’ll learn about death soon enough without inflicting it at such a tender age.

It sounds as though the plea agreement is more careful of animal welfare than of his children. Why should the court risk their lives and mental health any further?
