    Life without parole is only fitting He committed murder. Until these cases are dealt with severely, this will continue. They have NO reason to stop.

    This hunk of ghetto puke should not even be arrested or prosecuted – he does not deserve one ounce of the so called ‘justice system’ – maggots like Delos Pierre Gallon should just be hogtied and thrown off the Golden Gate Bridge – he is of no use to society or the human race. His vile cruelty to a small puppy only proved he is nothing more than dog shit and should be treated like such – thrown away. He is trash and deserves to be denied life, breath or consideration – give him what he gave an innocent defenseless puppy – NO MERCY!!

    This POS waste of valuable oxygen .. needs his worthless ass beaten like a drum. I think the best punishment is to break every bone in his body. Or better yet tie this fucker to the front bumper of a car .. to be used in a demolition derby. This prick will then KNOW the meaning of being SLAMMED!!!!

    Takes a real BIG man to throw a puppy on the floor and kill it. “There you B*tch, I killed your puppy aren’t I tough”! He needs to be thrown off of a cliff somewhere and forgotten about! I hope he gets what he deserves and not just a “slap on the wrist”!
