UP-DATE on the b**** that beat her 8 week old puppy.
For Mary who ask in my last article about this...if the puppy lived or not,at the time it did not say for sure,but this article says...According to SF Weekly, the eight-week-old Labrador retriever puppy was eventually humanely euthanized as a result of the grievous injuries.
She will be sentenced on 4/9.

Guilty - but is she going to prison. Time to fit the crime- though execution is the better solution.

Don't know the whole story but IF she is a victim of domestic violence herself (which is suggested by the black eye), this is an example of the far-reaching effects of that abuse, and why we need better laws.

Disgusting human being!!! May justice be served - she deserves to be locked up for life - cannot condone such awful abuse. RIP little puppy, sorry for your loss.

A wonderful reason to bring back public stoning! What will be her punishment? A slap on the wrist?

I'm glad she was found guilty. What a pity they can't throw her into an oubliette! I hope she goes to prison for a long time and shares a cell with a very large, very violent dog lover.

I echo Wendy C.'s comments. I don't believe anyone is born with an innate need to harm without provocation. It is something some of us acquire. This woman's shiner shows there is probably more to this story. I hope she gets what she deserves - but this might mean counselling or treatment as well as punishment.

Looks like someone beat the crap out of her. Deserved if for no other reason than for what she did to that innocent puppy.

I disagree with you Miranda,studies show some people are born with the innate desire to harm others ..if provoked or not.Obviously someone gave her a black eye,does that mean that she deserved a black eye does that mean she deserved it just because she provoked someone?I know myself and others here want to give her another for what she did to an innocent 8 week old puppy.
I myself am the victim of 31 years of domestic abuse,physical and emotional,just 5 days ago I had a black eye worse than hers,but did I do anything to provoke it??No I did not,and do I abuse animals because someone abuses me?No I do not.
If she is really crazy,then I say lock her up on the phyc ward,if not throw her in jail,and neither her or her abusive person she is with should ever have another dog again.While in either place she will have a chance for counseling and maybe get out of that abusive relationship.
If anyone wants to hear my thoughts on her black eye,I think she looks like someone who gets into a lot of a "tough"women.If so we will see how tough she is on the phyc ward or in jail.
No matter what the case there is NO VALID excuse for what she did...just my opinion....

Also she just has a black eye,the poor puppy got his eye knocked out of it's socket and was so bad he had to be put down.Sorry she is NOT the victim here!
She looks like she can fight back,the puppy never had a chance,sorry after thinking it over...hang her sorry ass.

The law won't do anything meaningful to this waste of space. She'll be free to go back to being a career crack whore and probably spawn a bunch of her deficient DNA into society to further poison it with maggots such as herself.

Diane, studies do indeed show that some people are born with psychopathic tendencies - i.e. there is a partly genetic element to it (e.g. Blonigen et al 2005 doi:10.1017/S0033291704004180). However, this does not translate directly into a desire to do violence to others. We all have the capacity to commit violent acts when provoked because it is a survival strategy, but I have yet to come across a study that proves that some human beings are born with an innate desire to inflict violent assaults for pleasure. That has to do with a person's upbringing, culture and environment, to which some people are more sensitive.
Would such a person be deterred by just a prison sentence? They are probably not going to be deterred by anything. So we need punishment AND counselling, and yes maybe that does mean exclusion from society for the rest of the offender's life locked up on a psych ward. Is that a punishment or a treatment, or is it both, as I originally suggested? Like I said, I hope she gets what she deserves.
You will see that I have signed the petition. I am certainly a fan of punishment. I just don't believe punishment on its own is ever enough - the evidence is all around us - and so we need to understand why some people do this to animals (or other people). If we understand, perhaps we have a chance to intervene and change. This is especially important because realistically, even if we really wished it so, this horrid person isn't going to be locked up for life and she isn't going to get the death penalty. So the next best thing is to try to change her before she's released, right? Just doing time in prison isn't the best way to try to reform a person; counselling and treatment are essential. Don't we all want the SAME THING here - to stop such terrible abuse?
Did I say that victims of abuse go on to abuse others? No I categorically did not. Aguilar may have punched her own face for all I know.
Diane, I am so very sorry that you have been the victim of abuse for so many years. I sincerely hope that it ends, today.

Apologies, Dianne. I spelt your name incorrectly.

No problem and yes you are right we all want the same thing here,that it stops.I do hope if she goes to jail or the psych ward that she gets the help she needs..and never does this kind of thing again.It gets so frustrating with all of these animal abusers getting away with just a slap on the wrist.

There are many studies on Nature v/s Nurture,also many debates on both sides.I have studied these in my psych and sociology classes in nursing school.The debates can go on forever.I do know of 2 serial killers Manson and Dahmor who both stated in many interviews that if they were let out of prison that they would do the same things again.
