Teen Girls Who Filmed Themselves on MySpace.Com Kicking Cat Wrapped in Plastic Around a Room Face Weak Misdemeanor Charge

How weak of a charge for two sick girls who are showing signs of future abuse towards even humans. As the article says, their crime is only related to a misdemeanor charge, and that is IF they were adults.

It’s well documented that those who abuse animals will very soon move on to human victims.

Here are a few articles on the connection between animal abuse, mental problems and future abuse of humans.

Here’s an article on kids and animal abuse:



Teenagers face sentencing for kicking wrapped cat

Two teenage girls charged with cruelty to an animal face sentencing Aug. 1 in Marion Superior Court after a fact-finding hearing Tuesday.

The Marion County girls, both 14, were charged after an animal-rights group told authorities the girls had posted on the popular Web site a video of themselves kicking a cat wrapped in plastic.

Authorities were alerted by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. The almost two-minute video showed the girls dropping, shoving and kicking the plastic-wrapped cat, named Stump, around a room, making comments such as "How does it feel?"

The 19-pound cat was removed from its home, but a judicial officer later ordered its return.

Authorities have withheld the girls' names because the animal cruelty charge they face would be a misdemeanor if it had involved an adult.
