a shout out to

supervisory assistant state's attorney stephen preleski who charged (the ALLEGED) dog torturer with a crime that carries a stiff sentence. it's about time. animals suffer. there was NO justification for what was done to that dog. if indeed the dog bit the child (and i'm believing she did. HOWEVER, she was in a cage and from what i understand was ALMOST ALWAYS IN A CAGE), i blame the adults FULLY. i could accept having the dog put down (humanely) if she was vicious. i cannot and will not accept having holes drilled in her head. may the person responsible for this (the one accused is pleading NOT GUILTY BY THE WAY) serve the MAXIMUM time allowed by law (and have this stay with him for the rest of his life)

If Cruz is convicted of that felony charge, he could be fined $5,000 and sent to prison for up to five years."I reviewed the case and charged Mr. Cruz with what I feel are appropriate charges," Preleski said later. ....
