Watching Animal Cops again, there was a horrible case of a cat tortured by a 14 year old boy. It was a miracle the cat survived her severe injuries. Makes me sick, made me question my thoughts about what a torturer gets out of such a shocking and disgusting act. Power: power over another living being? I realize a torturer is mentally abnormal, but where’s the social responsibility in his upbringing? Why not teach a child over and over that kindness and responsibility is power? It’s powerful to make a person or animal happy and lovingly responsive.
