[quote=“UKbikerchic”]Namahottie, can i ask what you think should happen to this guy then?
If not jail time for what he has done to an animal who was unable to protect itself then what? slap on the wrist and some counseling?? What? What should be done?
Do you honestly believe without punishment this man will not go on to do even more terrible things?[/quote] I already said that compassion has nothing to do with a 'get out of jail free ’ card.
[quote]I thank god that this man is being made an example of. Maybe it will put a thought into anyone else’s mind who is thinking about doing such vicious things to any animal or person. It is about time that people spoke up and got enraged about such a terrible act.[/quote] Ah, yes. Shame him into being the poster boy for abusers. You haven’t been in this country very long, if you have you haven’t observed enough. So, we use him as an ‘example’ and you some how think this is going to alter the mentality in Taiwan. Remember what we see as an example is called ‘lose of face’ over here. And to lose face can have some times have serious repercussions.
[quote]I am in fact educating any child that comes into my classroom about “don’t do to others what you wouldn’t want done to yourselves” this includes animals. It is terrible that some people believe they can do these unspeakable acts to living creatures and get away with it saying, “it’s just an animal”.[/quote] Ah, yes, we must impose our western imperialistic values on these people. Like they don’t know right from wrong already.
[quote]This man has shown no regret or remorse for what he has done and so in return deserves no compassion. Forgiveness comes to those who repent. Forgiveness shouldn’t be bestowed on anyone who has no love in their hearts. And for this man to do this to a poor helpless animal shows he has no love in his heart. It is cruel and malicious. As i have said before there would be no question what should happen to the man if he had done this to a child.[/quote] Nor did Clinton, nor has Bush, Nor did Hitler, Nor does Kim Jong II, Nor does the man who lied in South Korea about cloning, nor has Mel Gibson. You know why, when you impose your beliefs of what’s ‘right’ and what’s ‘wrong’ you aren’t going to get anywhere. So, wag your finger in this man’s face. Shame him even more, and then when you wondering why he won’t apologize, ask yourself was it because I judged him?
[quote]Hell would welcome this kind of man and I’m sure he’d feel right at home there.[/quote] A bit dramatic for my taste.
