    they should take him out and take a tire iron to him now. If he would do this to an animal he would do it to a person.

    People like this, are like ex wives/husbands. They do it to hurt the person that loves the animal the most. It is a revenge thing on the owner who ask him to leave. [sad]
    This is why animal abuse should be a felony, it is only a matter of time before a person with these tendancies will start doing it to humans too, if he has not already. Make this a felony crime and the public would be more safe.

    If he worked there shouldn't he have known there were cameras? What a cruel, stupid excuse for a human.

    Put him in a cell at the humane society. Preferably with a large angry dog.

    This man should just plain stay in jail for good. Every action was calculated and planned. There is no amount of his issues that makes beating an animal to death with a tire iron in anyway acceptable. Infact the authorties probably should look back at his life, he did this with too much ease. He has probably killed before.

    Useless excuse for a human being. No amount of jail time is enough for someone like this.
