If I got my hands on the sick pig who perpetrated this, I might forget that I am a non-violent person!

We are living in a society of "sickos". I'm like you Cate, if I ever met up with these murderers I would become one myself. What a sad Christmas for this family all because of three b _ _t _ _ds!

Noted. Pointless. Cruel. Killing for the "joy" of killing? Retribution to the family to whom the goose belonged? What is driving this seemingly epidemic worldwide of killing of animals, raping babies, smashing people's heads in. Is it the water supply? Some sort of hate elixir released in the air? The world is insane and evil and I just cannot believe that there isn't some logical explanation for this. There are endless speculations, but no scientific explanation. An epidemic of this scale and so violent and occurring at the same time has my hackles up? Maybe GWB has contracted this virus and that would explain why he is so irrational. We cannot incarcerate everyone and nothing undoes the loss or the pain. But I would have put the goose before them on a plate, just as they left it, and there would be no food or drink until these idiots ate that which they so savagely killed. If it took days and turned rancid. Now isn't that a jolly way for me to feel because of this endless stream of vile acts.

I guess it's the "trickle down" theory of torture:

"Shock Doctrine" Applied to Autistic and Retarded Kids

. . . . .

In recent incident, a resident was awakened and shocked 77 times:

While the staff claim that the shocks feel no worse than "a bee sting," Mother Jones' reporter Jennifer Gonnerman subjected herself to the shock and said "it felt like a horde of wasps attacking me all at once. Two seconds never felt so long."

Six kids have died at the Rotenberg school.

Eliot Spitzer is trying to get New York kids out of there, but a judge's order has temporarily kept the State of New York from doing so. This "normalization" of torture, whether against prisoners at Abu Ghraib or disturbed children, is a moral outrage -- and I really don't want to think that this is who we've become.

My heart goes out to the family and when they catch the little heathens I hope they don't get off like the boys in Seguin Tx. I know everyone always says the world has gone mad but each and every day there is more proof.

My heart goes out to these poor people may they find the guilty respondible and if they dont face punishment on Earth may they find their judgement fitting by the hands of the Lord. I agree with everyone who have mentioned the sick-o's are just coming out of the woodwork. No one seems to care anymore about animals or children everywhere you read or watch on the news they are killing killing killing its so upsetting I have gotten to the point I really dont want to watch the news any longer. because everynight its the same thing and its so upsetting to the spirit to see these things.

The parents of these abusers must be forced to pay restitution to the family of the pet they killed and these teens must be made to do public service for 1+ years.

Huckabee's Horrific Son

Well, Mike Huckabee may be a "amn of god", but his kid is a MONSTER. Not only was he implicated in the hanging of a dog while a teenager but he was arrested an airport with a gun even more

Did I miss where the cops are doing anything about this?
They need to offer that reward to the conviction of those boys.
One thing is true, kids talk.

I really hope they catch the lowlife scum who did this,and that they are dealt with immediately and severely.
And I also hope that the boys and the parents are made to face,and recompense Lily's family,although nothing can make up to them for what happened.
I know - as after visiting my brother interstate last year,I returned to find that 5 of my beloved chooks,and Daffy,my little crippled duck,had been stolen (and subjected to I can't bear to think what!) I do know who took them,but without proof,of course nothing could be done.

Why, why, why??? What is the matter with some people. I am so sorry for the poor animal and for the kind hearted, caring people who adopted her as a family pet, I can really feel for them. It would make my Xmas to have a few minutes with each of the gutless pieces of s**t that did this, give them a chance to prove just how tough they really are. Let's hope they get their comeuppance one way or another!!!

Thanks Cate...SADLY noted. PLEASE Lord; Bring these Insolent CREEPS to JUSTICE! A GOOSE? BEATEN to DEATH? DO PEOPLE have nothing better to do...? No Living or Breathing INNOCENT CREATURE DESERVES to be HARMED "just BECAUSE...." Thanks for the SAD, yet sorry TRUTH.... These GOOSE-BEATERS need HELP; IF this is what give them "JOLLIES" ......Doubt this is a Native Practice, or Light Wiccan...Just Demented Souls...Black Holes...Sorry, Just my Opinion.

Thank you Cate. I am so sorry for the family. What a very sad way to start the Holiday Season.

Pam F., My condolences to you also, as well as the knowledge that knowing who did it, without proof, can be so frustrating that sometimes it might be better not to know.

Good point, Blue....I read about Huckabee's son. When you think about what these NeoCons do for pleasure, like driving up and shooting farm-raised, neurotic quail, to shooting people in the face, to water-boarding,what can we expect? None of them served their "beloved" country, and their kids don't either. They are vicious cowards and the worst kind of bullies, their children have a lot to overcome.

There is so much human on animal violence - it seems to be escalating. I believe it's the stress and pressure of living in a pressure cooker that this society has become for many people who have financial difficulties, job problems w/uncaring employers, or health issues because of the unthinking unfeeling and second rated health care system in this country. So many humans are snapping, cracking and taking out their frustration on animals, their family, or humans they don't know - a country that is boiling over w/lies and misplaced values, crumbling ethics - everyone knows something is very wrong w/the government and yet everyone tries so hard to be in denial - no wonder people are cracking w/all the above. People need to remember there is more to life than money, shopping, escaping truth, avoiding aging and death, and dancing faster and faster til they collapse. It's right under their noses-its called family - and love....that's all that matters in the having purpose in life outside of oneself. Noted

Noted with sadness. A senseless act of cruelty. I hope they catch them and make them pay dearly. To those who mentioned Huckabee's son, the one that killed the dog and was arrested at the airport with a gun? Well I worked in that state. Are you aware that the entire family carries concealed weapons? Huckabee lost a lot of weight and then went on a crusade to have the body fat measured on all school children. Take a look at his own family. When I hear people say, they are going to vote for him, I tell them "talk to an Arkansan". My husband was born and raised there. There are 463 ethics violations associated with Huckabee. His answer" well I was never convicted." I wondered why the people would elect such a person as governor but he is a smooth talker. I personally think if you have a calling to be a minister, stay out of politics. Oh by the way, I believe that he is not a minister anymore. Imagine from a story about a tragedy involving a family pet to a small part of who Mike Huckabee is. LOL By the way, some of the republicans who served in the legislature are touring the country and speaking against Huckabee. Now that would certainly make me think twice but then I am not of that persuation so I would never vote for him in the first place.
