    I'm with you. Who cares. It's not like it's cruelty to animals or anything.

    Sure, it's gross, but there aren't any laws against being picking your nose and eating it, are there? Ugh, maybe there should be!

    i have to agree.

    legally, its no worse than blowing anything dead, up.

    recall the exploding whales

    while yes, a dead dog is morally and emotionally engaging, its legally no different from any carcass and thus should deserve a sentence deserving of whatever they are being charged with.

    thats my point.

    just because you find it "sick" doesnt make it a worse crime.

    though in a juried trial, yes it would probably tip favor to the prosecution, but the law doesnt allow for moral or ethical reasoning unless its merited.

    its just like complaining about what some hate monger spews, when all you want is "Free Speech"....its all or none.

    I'm guessing s/he figured few people would walk over decomposing whale entrails to steal it, so it was a safe spot to park. ;)

    Definitely on the macabre side but it was a carcass, not a live animal...

    People putting firecrackers in dead dogs anger me less than the animal rights whackos that commit various acts of violence against other human beings/property in the name of protecting animals. Now that is sick.

    So it shouldn't really be illegal to blow up graves in a cemetary? What about doing cruel things to the dead carcass of your mum or dad or someone you love? Even as "only" a carcass, hurting the carcass of the dead dog still brings pain and disgust, especially if the dog was truly loved by it's owner and was treated as a part of the family. We also tend to treat the dead with some respect, along with the grieving family and friends, whether they're dead or not. Yes, it's "just a dog," but to some people, that's not the case.

    This is coming from someone who just lost 2 dogs and has a dog with cancer back home.

    Yeah, its a little sick and the person perhaps needs counseling, but there are a lot of other sick things that are taken for granted.

    One way that this is worse than bits 'o meat is that the dog even after being roadkilled is the property of the owners so there is the possibility of a destruction of private property angle there.

    \Glad offending the public decency isn't a crime here
    \\they'd throw away the key on me.

    If dogs are the moral equivalent of people its the same.
    The law considers them differently. It allows for dogs that are feral and dangerous to be rounded up and shot.

    Sorry to hear about your pets though.

    yeah you cant legally compare and animal, domestic or wild, to a human being.

    though you might want to with your own pets, or if you are with Peta.

    but the law dont give a crap about dead animals, unless they died by human hands.

    so an argument about blowing up graves is totally ridiculuous as that would fall under another law entirely.

    and with respect to the law, what did they recieve 100 hours FOR? What law did they break?

    you could argue that on lots of things.

    as anyone can see it made no difference that a dead dog was involved.

    thats not to say it is any LESS tragic, but legally it is.

    Couldn't it possibly have posed a health risk?

    If the dog was diseased or something? :shrug:
