Man gets VERY light sentence for dog fighting

I just can’t believe how soft our criminal justice system still is on violent criminals. Innocent people are not safe in so many areas of the nation. Yet, the court system refuses to get tough.

A Kalamazoo, Mich. man was sentenced to 45 days in jail recently on dog-fighting charges. He will also serve three years probation. Fox 17 reports that back in September, the same man pleaded guilty to a felony animal fighting charge. And yet, he got only 45 days in jail.

The judge should have looked at the previous case, from just a couple of months back, and told the defendant that it was clear he had decided to ignore the law and that he had decided no one was going to stop him from torturing animals. So the only way to do stop him was to put him prison for a very long time.

In fact, as far as I’m concerned, in a case like this where a violent, repeat offender is involved – the sentencing should be automatic and decades in length, at minimum.

It has happened again and again the news comes out of Ohio. On Saturday, 241 dogs were rescued from an alleged puppy mill in Sidney, Ohio.

WLWT reports the dogs were found to be in very poor health and were living in unfit housing. One was found dead. And the name of the operation? – Pedigree Pets.
We need for the pace to pick up on puppy-mill raids nationwide. This is good news for the 241 dogs saved in this case. How many more, how many millions are suffering tonight?
