He had a "callous disregard" for Bandit's "pain and suffering?" I have the same for Connors in and out of "jail." In jail, I hope he gets beaten in the same manner and then becomes a girlfriend to a big man, or better yet, many men. When he gets out, I hope to have a personal meeting with him to "set straight" the rest of his bones. I know the RCBS Club agrees with me, as well as my boyfriend with his bag of rocks! Thanx Kim!

What he got in my eyed will never be enough as an innocent little puppy will never live life as he was intended too because of sub-scumbags like Connors. If I would of been the judge he would not see the light of day ever! Nothing can make right or justify what he did to poor little Bandit OK in our eyes ever! Thanks Kim!
 

Constance F. (433)
Wednesday February 2, 2011, 7:54 pm
Although agreed by many that the sentence is lenient, and yes, definitely, Jeanette, a petition for stronger laws need to be on the books; however, on a positive note, it was a small success. The article stated that it was the longest sentence ever, and that is an inch in the right direction. If I didn't look at these small inches of success, I'd feel simply bereft all the time. So good, good then. Thank you so much, Kim.

Laura, there certainly is a special place in hell for the evil ones that abuse the helpless! They get special treatment, and not the good kind! Karma always comes back to bite monsters like this! Thanks, Dirka, for the update! Very thankful that the judge gave the maximum. Obviously not enough, but the best the judge could offer us! Can we follow up our petition with a thank you letter?

Sadly the reality of this sentence is six months, presumably less if he behaves himself of work outs and lodging at our expense! Pity there is no option for hard labour and manual rock breaking whilst on bread and water rations! He is lucky he is not subject to Sharia law!

Penalties for cruelty to animals is never enough, but at least he got the maximum. This can be a precedent for future sentencing. I hope that someone keeps a close eye on the creep when he slithers out of jail.
 

Agnes H. (144)

He should have had the maximum they allowed which was 18 months, but he did get more than ever given before and 2 years probation from the day he steps out of jail and then 10 years prohibition of owning or coming in contact with animals AND birds. THAT I've never heard of that the felony comitted stopped the criminal from keeping birds either. I still think this judge had guts in doing that!

Abuse like this must be punished, and Canada needs laws for this. At the same time, what we really need is a shift towards awareness. The sweet dog lost its life, but he lost his humanity by doing that. Real change can only happen if we achieve a shift in the mindset of people.

Even the max of 18 months wouldn't be enough. How demented do you have to be to so violently beat something so small and defenseless? If only we could board up his cell and set it on fire....there'd be one less macho a-hole in the world.

At least he got the max. allowed , not enough of course but now that should help get the law changed to have stiffer and higher max. sentences for this type of cruel and insane behavior. If that's all the jail time then there should be time in a mental care facility for at least double or even triple that after they've served their time in jail.

So grateful that the judge did the most that the current law allows, which of course is still far from fair. If this dog killer is lucky enough to get out of jail with his life spared, then I'm sure that there'll be at least one or two animal lovers out there, just waiting to "welcome him" back into society. If all else fails, then finally justice will be served, because NOBODY escapes awaiting Karma; not even you Brent Connors. Trust that you shall feel every painful blow and the utter fear, that you so very heartlessly doled out to your helpless innocent victim.

Noted. Thank you, Kim.

While the six month sentence was the longest in B.C. history for animal cruelty, it was not the maximum sentence allowed which, according to the article, would have been 18 months.

"In 2008, the federal government sharply increased the maximum sentences for causing pain and suffering to an animal. The maximum sentence Connors could have received was 18 months in jail."

Connors now will only have to serve five months since Judge Ernie Quantz sentenced him to six months in jail, less one month for time already served since his arrest. In my opinion, the judge should have sentenced him to the 18 month maximum. Even that would have been far too little for his horrific crime.

Glad to see he will be probation for two years, and cannot own or live with any animals or birds for ten years. He has a problem that goes deep which needs therapy and wonder if steroids contributed to his aggression.
This is a win, and eventually the sentences may come to be greater. It is a foot in the door and a good example, although they say jail is often not a deterrent to crime. People who disregard life and start with animals and progress to humans have a deeper problem. How they can identify which ones are likely to accelerate would be tough, but there are often indicators in their relationships with people.

What really concerns me is that animal abusers get such lenient punishments (I use that term loosely) , but it is widely believed crimes against animals are gateway crimes to much worse crimes against humans that many times target children and the elderly first.

6 months jail is the maximum sentence for beating and killing a puppy? What a joke! Certainly the law needs to be change to catch up with the extreme animal cruelty we are experiencing in the world. Somebody in jail should give him a little taste of what Bandit suffered, that will bring justice closer to Bandit and his family.

However I have seen another young man who took these and turned into such a ticking time bomb that he lost his job and landed up being charged with making threats.

To Sue M. I agree with you 10000% - I think he will most definately experience inmate justice !!!! I have seen programmes on TV about the interaction between inmates and animals - and it brought tears to my eyes every time - to see these huge guys (a LOT of them were totally hardened criminals) with tattoos everywhere being brought to their knees by the lick of a dog. I think the HUGE majority of inmates feel the same about crimes against children and animals - and I think this moron is going to pay the price, even though that price is FAR too lenient !!! I think he is going to be the bitch - for sure !!

So glad he got the maximum sentence, though it is not of course sufficient. What he really needs, for us to be anywhere near seeing justice done, is the same treatment he gave to that puppy, and that would be too good for him!!! Rest in peace sweet little puppy Bandit, and know there are many of us who fight people like your murderer, and we are slowly but surely, redressing the balance. I think there will be more justice seen to be done, whilst this piece of human filth is in jail!!! Rosi Caswell Animal Whisperer, Animal/Human Therapist

What goes around comes around. At least he got the stiffest sentence ever handed out. We all know that people who abuse animals in this way - generally will turn their violent tendencies against humans. When you consider Mr. Vick only got 2 years for all the horrendous acts he committed - at least now - maybe more people will think twice about torturing and murdering animals.

I truely believe in an eye for an eye in cases where EVIL MONSTERS torture & kill innocents ~ Some may think me not "civilized" for feeling this way but TRUELY the only REAL justice would be doing to them EXACTLY to the death what they do to harm helpless souls . If there was a law like that that when proved 100% gulty then they would suffer the SAME fate THEY did to a helpless one then they surely would think TWICE before commiting the act ~ But our country is to civilized for that~ even though the killers are not in any way "civilized" ~ our laws would rather let the murderers & torturers of helpless animals get away with it with MAYBE a slap on the wrist so they can go on commiting EVIL until a human is killed THEN they MIGHT get some sort of punishement ~ To me a Precious animals life is just as important as a humans and animals are far better than a lot of humans ~ I just hope someone will make him pay for what he did in jail !

Yes, he should be serving the full 18 months! Much, much more, if it were possible. This is where judges are needed who are more sympathetic themselves toward animals. Ones who know what this kind of monster is and is next capable of. Not one who just goes by what the public wants in as little capacity as they have to, just to appease them. One who thinks for himself, has a heart, and sentences to the fullest extent that is within their power, these sick idiots. If this guy appeared sad for what he had done-BS-he was only thinking about what might could happen to him now behind bars. If judges would slam the book and beyond at them, then some of these animal abusers/murderers might do a little more thinking, and not acting out their sick thoughts.

Bandit is lost forever.

The laws are still too lenient but at least some custodial sentencing is now being applied. I can't see it being much of a deterrant though, can you? People commit human murders knowing they will be executed and they still do it. Impulse control should be taught from primary school upwards.

I really appreciate the update. Thanks very much!

Are these people aliens or are they really part of the human race? If either, they should be brutally beaten to death themselves, or spend the rest of their disgusting, horrid, evil lives in prison!

there is no amount of money that could place value on the life of a sweet innocent pup like bandit, let the sentencing reflect that. 6 months is nothing. what will his excuse be when he kills again, next time a human? I think killing a puppy is worse because they are more vulnerable and depend on us humans to look after them. Their love is also unconditional, they love you no matter what. There is no excuse in brutally harming one of these. he needs to know what he made bandit suffer

THE MONSTER RECEIVED FIVE MONTHS IN JAIL, A PROBATION PERIOD, AND A TEN YEAR PROHIBITION FROM OWNING OR OBTAINING AN ANIMAL. IN COMPARISON TO WHAT THE BASTARD WHO BEAT KARLEY TO DEATH WITH A ROCK IN RIVERSIDE, CALIFORNIA, SOUNDS PRETTY GOOD TO ME. IN THE STATES, WE GIVE A SLAP ON THE WRIST AND SEND JUVENILES AND ADULTS ON THEIR MERRY WAY SO THEY CAN COMMIT MORE CRIMES AGAINST ANIMALS, VIDEO TAPE THEM, AND POST THEM ON YOUTUBE AND FACEBOOK. VICTORIA SHOULD BE APPLAUDED FOR THIS DECISION. IT'S A STEP IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION. AS FOR THE MAN WHO BEAT THIS PUPPY TO DEATH NEW YEAR'S DAY AT A HOTEL, WELL, GOD HELP THE NEXT STRAY ANIMAL THAT HAS THE DIRE MISFORTUNE OF CROSSING HIS PATH. HE IS A SOCIOPATH AND SHOULD NOT BE ON THE STREET IN ANY JURISDICTION. WHAT WE NEED IS A CROSS BORDER ANIMAL CRUELTY REGISTRY SO THESE WALKING HORROR STORIES CAN BE TRACKED, MONITORED, AND STOPPED BEFORE THEY HAVE THE CHANCE TO KILL, AND KILL AGAIN. BECAUSE, AS SURE AS I'M SITTING HERE, HE WILL KILL THE NEXT OPPORTUNITY HE GETS. HE'S SORRY? HE'S SORRY HE GOT CAUGHT, ALA MICHAEL VICK. THEY ARE ANIMAL TERRORISTS, AND NEED TO BE TAKEN SERIOUSLY BY MORE CIVILIZED GOVERNMENTS. WHAT A FRIGHTENING WORLD.

Not so long ago animal murders got away with it. The stories even did not make it to the news. This is an amazing step forwards. Still not enough but I am happy with anything being done to stop and scare people off of doings nasty, cruelty to any animal. This is good news. Lets hope animals will be protect, just as if they were humans, soon.

It's a small victory but no less a victory. Hope it sends a message to those horribly inclined or they will just have to keep increasing the sentence until jerks figure out we will not let these things go unpunished to the limits...

it's great he was actually charged, but the penalty he got is so typical... But it's great that our efforts paid off anyway...!

Noted. Glad that something has been done to punish this murderer, even if I think it is not enough.

He's getting more than a slap on the wrist & jail time will not be a picnic for him. Thanks Kim.

"10 years prohibition of owning or coming in contact with animals AND birds" - this should have been LIFE - hope Karma gets to him sooner rather than later. He must beware, I think the 'jail population' is more pro-animals than any other level of humanity and once they know, they're gonna make him pay dearly. The judge did show guts in doing this, lots of kudos to him! And yes, thankful that it's a step in the right direction by the judicial system.
