An Oregon man who choked his girlfriend’s dog to death will have time to reflect on his cruel actions from behind bars. As reported by the Statesman Journal, 51-year-old Richard Lipps was sentenced to four years in prison after being found guilty of first-degree aggravated animal abuse, domestic violence menacing, resisting arrest, second-degree attempted escape and two counts of attempting to assault a police officer.

Marion County Judge Mary Mertens James sentenced the dog-killer to prison on Friday, telling him:

“What you did is heinous, and it’s shocking to me that anyone would think otherwise.”

Lipps was reported to have been high on meth on the day that he used a shoelace and metal coat hanger to kill a young pit bull named Andrea. Lipps was angry that the dog had an accident inside of an RV. Lipps allegedly smiled at his girlfriend while killing the dog and informed her that she “was next.”

Lipps’ girlfriend blames his deplorable behavior on the drugs and stated that she would like to continue dating him, “if God allows it.”

    Maybe “God should allow” the same thing to happen to HER!

    As for HIM–First, prison–next, HELL!

    This woman is clearly an idiot. She wants to continue dating him??? Based on the list of charges, 4 years is basically a slap on the wrist. This guy deserves to be put away for at least 20 years or until he is eligible for Medicare. Being high on drugs is NOT an excuse for this type of behavior, it calls for more punishment, not less. Fry him and be done with it. The world would be a much better place without him, and maybe without her too.

      You said it!!! I agree with you. She could easily be the next victim……….
      Being “high” might explain why someone did an act BUT it does NOT excuse the act itself……….
      Evil is evil is evil…………

    I don’t know who is the bigger idiot, the POS that did this to his girlfriend’s dog or the girlfriend who wants to keep dating this disgusting POS who told her she was next. Drugs might have had something to do with it, but what makes her think this isn’t his true identity. I am willing to bet once back on the streets he will again go for the drugs and where does that leaver her? All I can say is if she is THAT stupid, she gets what she deserves. May he rot in jail and after that, Hell!
