Killing any animal should require a licence and ethical standards.

Anyone killing an animal without a licence should be immediately in breach of the law and have to justify their actions if questioned.

This is similar to speeding where you can be caught speeding but justify one’s actions and be let off.

Any torture, maiming or unjustified killing should face penalties similar to a crime against a human.

Stabbing a police dog is a big penalty, I hope he makes it. Kaos is a really well known dog and I remember him particularly because one of mine is registered as Kaos, mine's older at 10 so he got in first.

A 21-year-old Milton man and a 24-year-old Enoggera man have both been charged with one count each of serious animal cruelty, unlawful use of a motor vehicle, serious assault police and obstruct police.

What I don't get is that the fwit would have known he was about to be arrested but stabbed the dog anyway. Gotta ask which of his two brain cells thought this was ok. What did he gain from it?

This story is behind a HS paywall but here's an excerpt:
Aaron Shahin, 35, is accused of catching a cat and killing it by shooting it in the head in June, Ringwood Magistrates’ Court heard.
An alleged sicko accused of committing vile acts of animal cruelty has made a bid for freedom.

Aaron Shahin, 35, faced Ringwood Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday charged with six acts of animal cruelty as well as being a prohibited person in possession of a firearm.

Police charge sheets released by the court alleged Shahin was at home with his girlfriend in April when he caught two mice and told her he planned to burn them alive.

He took a blowtorch and allegedly held up one of the mice using a set of pliers and laughed as he burnt the mouse to death, the documents alleged.

These are clearly cases where mental illness should be deeply investigated.
so true

I would say 99% of dangerous criminals have a mental health issue and only 1% truly just horrible people with no excuse. However, mental health is not an excuse for a crime, rather it is a reason for the need of outcomes.

Everyone needs a purpose in life and getting up every morning with work gives purpose and structure.

A very grey interpretation PR.

What passes for "dangerous criminal" slides between absurd to fully qualified.

What he did is obviously so wrong but I do feel some sympathy, it's been a bit upsetting watching facebook groups hating on cats and asking for cages to trap them so the council can take them away.
