    The throat-slashing thing is terrible, and was unnecessary...but I can't help but ask:

    Who the hell fights over custody of a dog??

    He sends a picture of their dead dog and then leaves a voicemail saying, "Youre next girl".
    He made false statements to the police and he isnt charged with any of this?

    I hope he gets what he deserves.

    I had a case once where the guy used pliers to pull the teeth out of his ex's two little bitty dogs. These dogs were like children to this lady. One dog died, the other lived. He tape recorded the dogs screaming, and left her the tape. He also hid the teeth all over her house (in the pockets of her clothes, inside dishes, behind books, etc). He went to prison, and months later she was still finding the teeth.

    As much as I love dogs and fervently wish that he gets thrown in a pit with 1000 rabid Chihuahua's, is it really any different than cutting a pigs throat? A chicken? I think he ought to be charged with a bunch of things, but animal cruelty doesn't seem to be the right crime.

    it's the sharkskin wall of silence. They look out for each other. Chances are the judge and prosecuting atty in the jurisdiction is also an attorney.

    Psychopathic lawyers do, apparently.

    This incident does nothing to change my opinion of lawyers in general.

    The lawyer's actions constitute a terroristic threat if ever I saw one. What are the statutes in Alabama regarding such threats?

    That sicko needs to be dipped in beef gravy and locked up in a cell with some hungry Rotties!

    It's a dog. It was his property. That is all. At the most... some sort of cash fine is all this sort of thing merits. The dog is not a person. Killing it is nothing more than a misdemeanor. Getting all emotional about it is irrational.

    He also sent his girlfriend a picture of the slaughtered animal with a message saying "You're next!".

    I'm not sure about you, but I'm willing to bet most folks would agree that slitting an innocent animal's throat for the purpose of threatening the life of a fellow human being is pretty solidly within the realm of what society considers to be sick, dangerously obsessive behavior.

    I believe the local scuttlebutt is that his dad IS a judge.

    Did he eat the dog? Did he do it for the purpose of eating the dog? Do you actually need to ask a question that obvious?

    Which is a wall you just made up. Lawyers keeping quiet to protect each other is on par with the local Ford dealer keeping quiet about wrongdoing by the local Nissan dealer. Lawyers love to tell on each other - nonlawyers just don't usually understand when there is something to tell.

    Anyhow, in Kentucky this would result in at least 2 felony charges and permanent disbarment and he'd be less likely to get a break than a thug from the hood - judges often make examples of lawyers.
