Punish Juvenile for Strangling Cat


Target: Chief of Cleveland Police Calvin D. Williams

Goal: Punish Ohio teenager for strangling and throwing cat

A video surfaced of an unidentified Ohio teenager who strangled and threw a black cat for eating his dog’s food. Authorities were notified thanks to concerned viewers, but the teenager has yet to be charged for animal cruelty. While the cat appears to be unharmed, the public is pushing the police department to charge the teenager with animal cruelty. Demand Police Chief Calvin D. Williams to press charges and punish this person for harming an innocent animal.

The teen is heard in the video threatening the cat with his hands wrapped around the creature’s neck. “You think it’s a motherfucking game, huh? Keep on eating my dog’s food. You hear me? I’ll choke the shit out of your dumb ass.” The teenager then tosses the cat across the street.

The video was uploaded to the teenager’s Facebook where it was quickly taken down. Viewers from the community and around the country called investigators and alerted them to the issue. Many are appalled that the teenager has not been arrested and despite this backlash, the teenager is bragging about his misdeed, saying, “28 shares [on that video], in all 40 people sent me a friend request in 6 minutes. I think that was somebody [sic] cat, oh shit that cat might of [sic] been famous.” His Facebook profile has been taken down.

The cat was found by authorities who is mostly unharmed except for a scratched nose. They’ve named the cat Clarissa and report that she is doing well.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation acknowledges that children who inflict animal abuse are more likely to be criminals when they become adults. Some criminals such as murderers, rapists, and drug dealers have a history of animal abuse. This is why it is imperative for the Cleveland Police Department to charge and punish this teenager for animal abuse. If this is how he treats a strange and unfamiliar cat, imagine how he treats his own dog or other people. Tell Police Chief Williams to protect animals, as well as the public, from this deranged person by charging him with animal cruelty.


Dear Police Chief Williams,

Recently, your authorities investigated an Ohio teenager who uploaded a video of himself strangling a cat. This disturbing footage prompted many citizens around the country to report the crime. The sole reason this teenager abused this cat was because she ate his dog’s food. These actions point to a deep and troubling attitude. It is obvious that this teenager has a proclivity towards anger and he must be dealt with.

I urge you to press charges against this teenager. While he is still a juvenile, studies have shown that those who inflict animal abuse at a young age are at higher risk of becoming hardened criminals. Some of America’s most notorious serial killers have histories of abusing animals. I implore you to protect not only the animals in the community, but the humans as well, by charging this teenager with animal cruelty.

  1. We need more education about cruelty to animals!!!

    • We need more rules and punishment for our kids too

    • Enough with the education, we need strict and i mean STRICTER laws when it comes to the harm and death related to cruelty from a human? AND i use that term human very loosely!! It’s time to start dishing out the punishment and punishment that is going to make one think before putting their grubby hands on another defenseless animal!! For this perp i’m sure the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.. It all starts at home. I can not imagine the chaos that must go on behind those walls.

    Can we please pledge to strangle anyone who is cruel to innocent, helpless animals???? That way we could take care of the world’s other major problem too (overpopulation, since the amount of animal abusers seems to be astronomical, based on everything I read and/or see on the news).

  3. This makes me so enraged how sick little freaks think its acceptable to be cruel to animals, justice needs to be done, animal cruelty needs to carry a proper punishment.

    Abuse is the ultimate betrayal towards any living soul and absolutely heartbreaking all the way around. You simply can not do such a horrific thing without it killing the best in you. Period. But in case there are any out there who couldn’t care less about torturing animals – which says a lot about you, as well – then think on this: If you find people happily willing to hurt an animal in any way, they are actually finding a venue to act out their deepest, most inner evil fantasies of twisted sickness. There’s nothing more revolting than that. Aside from this, it has been proven over and over again that people who have horrid intents with animals, get bored with them soon enough, ultimately leading them to bigger prey, moving up to people, in order to re-ignite and enhance the excitement that the torturing of animals used to provide. It’s simply never enough. And do not forget, these horrendous monsters also end up raising their children in “the game”, breeding evil, little sickos to continue on “the trade”… no doubt causing abuse in every level of their lives, as well. It’s just a revolting cycle that will never end until someone gets into it and breaks the heart-wrenching pattern. So, even if an animal is not of your utmost concern, then note that it will not stop there. It is just a start. And it is just a matter of time.

    so SICK of hearing how people are getting away with animal abuse!! This kid may have not succeeded in killing this cat, but that doesn’t change the fact that it was the idea behind the action! Harder laws and PUNISHMENT for this behavior has got to be enforced!! WHY IS THIS BEHAVIOR BEING ALLOWED TO CONTINUE WITHOUT PUNISHMENT???? This has got to be taken seriously!! This has got to STOP!!!
