That's my lunch ruined, i actually feel quite sick.
I hope the fucker dies a slow and horrible death.
but if you scroll down a little bit there's a story about a 78 year old woman being raped in her own home by someone who forced their way in.
Kinda puts things into perspective.
And then they put that ridiculous looking photofit in the middle of it, where she seems to have been attacked by a middle aged Harry Potter
but i wasn't making any comparisons, and it doesn't make this any less wrong or utterly dispicable.
It does. Specifically it makes me ask myself if I'd like it if someone knocked on my door every evening to tell you how many old ladies had been raped in my area.
I think that would suck. So now I'm wondering why we're all paying the BBC (and I guess, all the other news organisations) to tell us these things in their 'local' (read 'irrelevant') news reports. What possible benefit is there to anyone in informing them that the other day a dog had its head kicked in in a park?
which would be a good thing, no? Also, i'm sure it represents a crime, which is news (albeit local), and thus gets reported as such. It's obviously been escalated to the front pages by the BBC's 'most read' lists, and a story like this will always 'achieve' this feat...
How would a news report help the police with anything? For one thing, if the police ever need actual help with their enquiries the public is literally the last place they turn to.
and thus it may result in witnesses coming forward etc. Also, the public tend do an ok job via crimewatch and the like...
What a fucking cunt. Cruelty towards animals is the first sign that suggests you're gonna be a very cruel/violent/murderous adult.
However, one of the links from that story was this: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/cornwall/8329295.stm
""I'm not, and nor are you. When I am dead and that I will have lost the spark of my 20s, and I know that happens, at this point I will come back to you and you in turn will give me back your extraordinary passion for living. I am not dead. Yet."
Mr Leslie, who does not speak French, tried to translate the letter" :D

^Has feck all to do with anything, really.
we dunno what the hell they look like!
"that in the wild would grow up and attack people it didn't like, and kill them if it could."
You sure about this?
*that SOME owners have with their pets
What are you talking about? If its 'owners' don't own it, who does? Remember these are pets, not wild animals, and if no one claimed owenership/responsibility then the animal would be fucked.
'cos if you're not, that's kind of hypocritical.
for a reversal of thousands of years of domesticating animals and then destroy those species that are / have been?
Others say "companions".
who treat their animals well will possibly disagree with you on that point. i'm sure there are some indicators that a dog has some sort of positive emotion towards its owner!
but some of your points have been a bit silly.
? so get rid of them all? there aint ,much room for the improvement of the human species either if you look at their behaviour!
and....'leisure object' is a strange choice of words!
because you think it shouldn't exist at such a level in the first place where human beings have such feelings for it...?
i'm sure a dog realises pain.
we're veering off topic a little because the article says the dog died instantly, however to prove a dog feels pain; next time you are near slam its leg in a door very hard and see the result. i did this once (by accident!) and the animal most definatley felt pain.
But your starter for 10: Tell me what a jack russell's 'natural destiny' is...
it's not a wild animal. There are no wild jack russells. You cannot apply wild animal genetics to it, but if you're looking for a simple explanation, Vikram's post suffices.
just some of your claims have been fairly wild, and hence have prompted quesitoning. You've also explored a few tangents way beyond your summary here.
this is a dicussion re: compassion (for this section at least), not conservation - i.e. were this a wild animal that had died as a result of a natural process (predtaion, competition etc) then fair enough, but it wasn't.
Also, no-one's said that human life is of lesser value than a jack russell's.
Others say "accept responsibility for, care for".
What's a rational relationship you can have with pet??????
i'm gonna stand as an independent in St.Neots at the general election, with this as my manifesto.
Also, yes, the kid is going to be traumatised by this for sure :(
dog: bring happiness/joy to its owners
person: probably a lifer waiting to happen
that guy would be a drone of the lowest order.
no boss would lose a job over such a non-entity.
some people are worthless, in my opinion.
what would your opinion be on someone like Ian Hunley or Ian Brady?
in my opinion, utterly worthless
So you're claiming that:
[someone working in a factory stacking shit] + [productivity for the world] - [a human with feelings of inadequacy that lead to kicking a dogs head in] = [a level of happiness overall]
[a level of happiness overall] > [a level of happiness provided in a multitude of ways, almost unconditionally, by the dog]
[someone working in a factory stacking shit] + [productivity for the world] - [a human with feelings of inadequacy that lead to kicking a dogs head in] > [a level of happiness provided in a multitude of ways, almost unconditionally, by the dog]
Please show your working.
and the animal is going about its business! the plantes much more than us humans you know.
There are an awful lot of people I would get rid of first.
If 2-3 billion people died, I'd argue in many ways it would be for the better.
But in reality, are they currently 'contributing' more than the benefits the puppy was probably offering in terms of lessons on responsibility, companionship, warm memories that could get someone through the hard times in the future, etc?
For someone who usually takes the cold, calculated 'anti-human' angle on things (often with good reason), you're showing a surprising amount of empathy for these eejits.
but it made me fucking livid. those are the ocassions when you wish you were there to lay into every one of those cunts
makes me glad im going to asia in 2 weeks tho. I want to eat some dog
Following on from, an summarising all of the above...
Some people (in the vein if the dog kicker discussed above) seem to think that the law doesn't apply to them.
How do you connect with (rehabilitate?) them in order that they are more likely to realise their potential and less likely to infringe negatively on the lives of others?
he is the new pocketmouse.
