Stop Releasing Animal Cruelty Convicts From Jail Early

Cow-In-Trailer-by-Animal-People-Forum.jpg

Target: Kip Thomas, Madison County Sheriff

Goal: Force animal cruelty convict to serve his full jail sentence instead of releasing him because of overcrowding.

A man who was convicted on animal cruelty charges was released early due to overcrowding. According to the sheriff, they chose to release some who they considered “non-violent” offenders from jail and they won’t have to return and serve the rest of their sentence.

He was sentenced after being caught with a cow cruelly strapped down to a flat-bed trailer in a “spread-eagle” position. Justice was hardly served to begin with as the convict was only given a 10-day sentence combined with some fines and an order to volunteer 100 hours at an animal shelter where more animals can be put at risk.

Animal cruelty is violence and there’s been enough evidence to show that animal abusers are often dangerous members to the entire society. It’s even more risky to release him after only giving him a slap on the wrist. It seems the lives of innocent animals aren’t important to Madison county. Sign this petition and demand that people convicted of animal cruelty are not released early.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Thomas,

We are disappointed to learn that a man convicted of animal cruelty was released from jail early and will not have to serve his minor 10-day jail term. You stated that the jail was overcrowded, so those considered non-violent offenders got released early.

It seems the fact that people who commit cruelty towards animals are often significantly more dangerous members of society has been ignored in this case. This man harmed innocent animals and that should be considered a violent offender. We demand that you stop downplaying the lives of animals and start serving justice when it’s deserved.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. Animal abusers are a danger to all animals, but also human beings. They do not deserve reprieve because of overcrowding. They are violent criminals!

  2. Gene Sengstake says:

    Let’s not forget – the law protects the bad guys – so letting them out early is no big deal. I mean – you really don’t want these poor guys suffer through crowded jail conditions do you???

  3. Cynthia Mattera says:

    This is a very disturbed, sick man to do something so cruel to a helpless cow. He should have served his full sentence, and then some for his crime. I wish judges would take animal neglect, abuse, torture and murder more seriously!!!

  4. hal shootel says:

    An animal abuser is a human abuser in training. Certainly you should worry about one of these early releases targeting your children, wife or parents.

    It would be tragic for you to come home some night to learn your family has been attacked or killed by one of these model inmates…wouldn’t it?

    Do the right thing. Keep them incarcerated for the full term of the sentence.

  5. What the hell does this stupid sheriff think ISN’T of a “violent” nature/act here? Definition of “violent” = using or involving the use of PHYSICAL FORCE to cause HARM or DAMAGE to someone or something; showing violence; caused by physical force or violence; caused by force, not natural. How does he think this POS got that poor cow INTO a spread-eagled postition in the first place, in addition to the use of STRAPS to hold her there?!! Bovines do NOT lay down in such an unnatural manner, and one can only imagine what damage and pain this would have caused to her legs and internal organs, much less her psyche, ALL of which counts towards the EFFECTS of any nature of crime regarding “cruelty” or “abuse” or “violence”!!! Is he insanely trying to believe this DIDN’T cause HARM to that poor cow??!! This sheriff is an utterly imbecilic MORON, not worthy of his title or job, and should therefore be fired for mental INCOMPETENCE!

    keep these asswipes in there until they would rather slit their own wrist than even LOOK at another animal. maybe they will die in there. that should ease the over crowding.

  7. HOW DOES THE JUSTICE SYSTEM THINK THAT THESE SLIME BALL MONSTERS WHO ABUSE, TORTURE AND KILL ANIMALS WILL EVER LEARN TO RESPECT ALL LIFE WHEN THEY ONLY GET A SLAP ON THE WRIST AND THEN DON’T EVEN HAVE TO SERVE THE LITTLE TIME THEY GET IN THE FIRST PLACE?? THEN THEY LET THEM OUT TO DO IT AGAIN AND THEN EVEN WORSE ABUSE. DO WE HAVE TO EVEN WONDER WHY OUR WORLD IS SO MESSED UP?? I THINK NOT!!

    EXTREME ACTIONS DEMAND EXTREME PUNISHMENT!!

    STOP THE INSANITY AND SEVERELY PUNISH THOSE WHO DO SUCH HORRIFIC THINGS AND THEN ENFORCE THE PUNISHMENT!!

  8. In my mind, animal cruelty/torture is equivalent to child abuse and there must be no leniency offered these violent, disturbed individuals.

  9. Disgusting piece of crap needs to serve full sentence. Also these losers deserve much stiffer sentences, because they will just get out and do it again!

  10. Violent criminals like these animal abusers need to serve every day of their sentence. No EARLY release for violent offenders!!!!
