To Whom It May Concern:
This morning (4/4/08) on my way into work I was cruising thru the radio stations and heard the end of a news report about a man who was being sentenced to a misdemeanor for killing his girlfriend’s cat by throwing it against the wall. Because he was charged with a misdemeanor and not the felony he could still (once out of jail) begin his enlistment with the Navy.
I am not perfect; I have made some real big blunders in my life. But to think that our US Navy would be OK with allowing this man to still enlist, I just cannot believe it. So a man who by admission stated he threw a cat and killed it for no reason is now allowed by the US Government to join the Navy and learn really how to shoot a gun, be a protector? This person who has so little regard for life. Now he will be trained, feed, clothed, educated, housed, and medical. What did that poor defenseless cat get? Murdered. That is what it got.
Here is the link from the local paper:
On the link to the story you can also see photos of the cats, man, and girlfriend.
I cannot believe this is the type of person you will allow to defend us, stand up for us, and represent us.
I am actually ashamed of us.
"Deliberate cruelty to our defenseless and beautiful little creatures is surely one of the meanest and most detestable vices of which a human being can be guilty of."
