honestly 5 years is about right... he had a life sentence and the way the court system works. if you plead guilty your sentence is lessened by alot. i believe thats why they give yo ua life sentence. so you will plead guilty and so that they KNOW they have the right culprit. he pleaded therefore he got 5 years. he'll be out and back at it. and kevin is right they wont kill humans as you cant sell human meat. and they were stupid too take someones property. and agree if the kill pens were open people wouldnt have to kill our pets. they'd just take the unwanted ones to make horse meat. as it would not be on the black market.

That is so sad! oh my gosh, that is devastating. A pony was stolen from our area and I dread trying to imagine what happened to that poor animal. I hope nothing else happens.

Glue, Dog food, human consumption. There still is a market for it, just not in the U.S. right now.

There is a huge black market for horse meat among the Latino and Island emigrants, especially with those that settled in Florida.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.


It's not always what you say but what they hear.

How awful. It's so sad that anyone would do this. I would be devastated if something happened to my horse.

I'm confused though, why anyone is drawing the conclusion that Appyluva was suggesting that these people will try to sell human meat? That clearly was not the point. There are several case studies on the connection between engaging in animal cruelty and later on progressing into violent crimes against humans. It is a very valid point and should not be overlooked. I'm not sure if 5 years is enough time or not. I personally would have them in much longer than that.

He is getting off lightly. What a low life. People that do that could do that to a human...not to "sell" their meat but for gang related or drug related crimes...they have no compassion or compunction against killing or torturing another human or animal. Lots of thugs in the world. 5 years is a light sentence in my book.

Thank you, Shasta. I was trying to figure out a better way to explain what I was trying to say and it seems like you've done that for me. I was not suggesting that humans would sell human meat. I was trying to say that studies prove that engaging in animal cruelty can progress into violent crimes against other humans.

There is a distinction here between animal crudity and "business". They are not doing this for the "pleasure" but for the money. There is a hugh difference and not one that escalates to violent crime against humans.

iridehorses, I can honestly say that I have never read an article that studies that distinction, let alone concludes it. I would be very interested to read it though. Can you recall where to find it?

I'm intrigued by your argument though. So, what you are saying is that the ends justify the means? Its OK to torture animals and psychological problems can be ruled out as long as a busniess transaction is involved? I'm not following.
