    I hope he gets the maximum amount of time for each of those charges. How much harm could that little dog have done him? Not much. Pathetic POS needs to be locked up where he won’t hurt anyone else.

    Great the Palm Bay FL.. law enforcement CAPTURED this Worthless Scum Bag…. Now let’s hope they don’t give 6 months suspended with probation!!! He needs to be placed in a cell with animal lovers in the Pen for the maximum they can give him….. His “momma” didn’t have a positive outcome with this Maggot!!!!! His life is not going to improve in the future either… Any person to inflect such a Horrific Injury on a little pup like that is A “LOST SOUL”!
