As these crimes become more exposed to the public, there will be those willing to take the law into their own hands especially when the laws allow the abusers to walk away with a slap on the wrist. Juveniles are even more apt to be sent for a few counseling sessions and that's all.
Noted with sadness for the death of this famiily's cat in such a horrible way. I can't imagine coming home to find my house broken into and my precious cat killed in my microwave.

Arthur Schafer, director of the University of Manitoba's centre of professional and applied ethics, said, "Publishing of the names together with threats is itself bordering on shameful and is as worrying for society as the original act.

So, what's his point? Who gives a damn? It seems to me
that a bit of Frontier Justice would be called for in
a case like this! God knows these monsters are not going
to recieve any fitting punishment from the court. They'll
get their wrists slapped, walk away, and consider
themselves to have gotten away with it.
OMG, this kind of thing makes me mad as hell!
noted with fury.

Noted with disgust.

It's this kind of thing that makes me wish I had gone to law school so I could be the judge (and perhaps jury) in cases like this.
