The comment made at "Racist Dog Lovers" is ridiculous and the person making it needs to read a book and learn something. Where does race figure into ANY of this? Get this through your thick skull: No one cares what color an animal abuser is- and stop detracting from the issue. Evil comes in all colors and this is just one. Anyone who purposely starves a helpless craeture and throws him out like garbage needs to be punished. And 6 months and $1,000 doesn't cut it. $1,000 won't even cover the vet bills for poor Patrick. If you truly believe this is a horrifying, sicckening crime (which it is), you will keep race out of it.
