Finally! A bit of justice has been issued to an animal abuser. This is in regard to the article about the "dog beater." I applaud Judge O'Brien, usually these animal abusers are given a "slap on the wrist." I realize they can't all be put in jail, because the jails are getting full, but in my opinion, I respect and applaud any judge who will issue the stiffest penalty to any and all animal abusers. There are lots of children and animals being abused and neglected out there and if these "help" agencies can't do anything, maybe a Judge can.
