    This is a horrific story. Glad that you have it out there to educate people. This individual should never have been released to the public but put into a facility for people who do these horrific crimes and can not leave like a mental institution. Isn’t this how serial killers started with animals? I am appalled that the case wouldn’t be reassigned to another officer especially due to the mans past or all the constant complaints.. It’s not just a case of oh their cats. This man has something Mentally wrong with him to have killed 19 animals and probably more!! I am not an activist but a concerned citizen with a heart. I fear for my own family knowing someone like him is out of jail roaming freely. We need to beef up our mental health In this nation.

The number of ” second chances” given to so many offenders, with both legal and illegal residents, by liberal judges, courts, and people in general, has gotten way out of hand!- This, frankly,is why Trump has hit a chord: so many people see us headed for a cliff, economically and socially, and we really need to start getting this ship turned around!
