Heartless thug arrested for throwing and kicking pillowcase of puppies into storm drain

A Florida man, videoed by his neighbor stuffing a litter of puppies into a pillowcase and then kicking and throwing them into a storm drain, was arrested this week by the Jacksonville Police.  Ernest Martin, 39, has been accused of six counts of animal cruelty for the abandonment of animals in public without providing for their welfare. According to News4Jax, Martin was caught on camera last September cramming the six puppies he stole from his stepfather into the pillowcase.

Martin is then seen tossing the puppies one by one over a fence and walking to the storm drain in the street. There he   tries to push all the puppies. into the drain. As they struggle to escape, Martin kicks them back into the hole.

The witness, who videoed the disturbing scene, couldn’t believe anyone could be so callous:

 “He throws them real high into the air and over the fence and they’re hitting the ground. He came back outside with some pillow cases, grabbed the puppies up one by one, came out here to the drain and started shoving them into the drain. When they started moving around, he was kicking them, trying to shove them back into the drain.”

Fortunately all six puppies were rescued and survived the attack; one of the puppies lives with Martin’s stepfather and family members have adopted the others.  According to Martin’s mother, her son suffers from schizophrenia and stated her son thought they were tiny demons.  Martin remains in jail in lieu of a $90,000 bond.

    If he is ill….. he should be BANNED form living anywhere near companion animals. If he choses not to stay on his meds, he should be locked up…. it is evident he is a danger to society. Just look at his eyes…there is nothing there but two black holes. PLEASE….. BAN THIS MONSTER!! I am sorry he is sick, but that is not society’s problem..

    “WHEN I LOOK INTO THE EYES OF AN ANIMAL, I DO NOT SEE AN ANIMAL. I SEE A LIVING BEING. I SEE A FRIEND. I FEEL A SOUL”.

    You see nothing in this monsters eyes………..

    If her son suffers from schizophrenia, how about making him take his meds before he thinks you are a ‘demon” and throws you in the storm drain. How do people stand there and video tape this stuff without trying to put a stop to what this POS is doing? Unbelievable! I am glad, however, the pups all survived this horrendous ordeal, but why didn’t someone put a stop to it?

    FOR a change there WAS a JUDGE that KNEW THIS RIFF_RAFF POS needed to remain incarcerated and out of reach to BE ALLOWED TO HARM HELPLESS PUPPIES< DOGS< CHILDREN.. HOPEFULLY HE WILL HANG HIMSELF WHILE IN HIS CELL AND SAVE THE POULATION being in constant fear of WHAT HE WILL DO NEXT like DECAPITATE HIS MOM!!!

    Schizophrenia? Well, lock this sucker up in a mental institution and forget about him – Personally, I think this is just an excuse to cover up his cruelty – $90,000.00 bail – THANK YOU for one judge with a brain. I hope jail is as cruel to Ernest Martin as he was to these helpless puppies.
