You unplug my game, you die. That appears to have been the mentality of a 21-year-old man in Staunton, Virginia, who, according to reports, has been accused of killing his girlfriend’s kitten by hurling the tiny animal against a wall after the kitten disconnected the video game he was playing. This allegedly happened while his girlfriend’s children watched.
People who hurt animals are bullies and cowards, because they vent their rage, insecurity, and idiocy on the smallest and most defenseless beings available. What’s more, numerous studies show that animal abusers often turn their violence against human victims.
Please write a polite letter to Commonwealth Attorney Douglas L. Guynn asking him to vigorously prosecute the case:
