Yet another news story about domestic abuse and animal abuse

Maybe we’re just hearing about this more because the media is focusing on it more – but maybe not. It seems there are an increasing number of cases where people are abusing family members, both human and pets.

In Canton, Ohio, a man was arrested last week and charged with assaulting his pregnant girlfriend and her dog. He punched the puppy several times before holding a knife to her stomach and striking her several times.

Is it because this type of person is so mentally and physically weak? – Is this the problem with men who beat up kids, women and puppies? I think judges in these cases should require these “men” to wear shirts – in prison and after they get out – with words in large letters that read, “I’m a little wimp boy who picks on women, toddlers and puppies.”
