Clearly, Judge Scarpellino's reaction to several penned letters from various State Legislators pleading the highest animal cruelty charges be brought against this individual were an obvious nuisance to him, and was openly annoyed in court,

Judges are suppose to be not predjucial but this one evidently is, he will not listen to any issues regarding the horrendous cruelty inflicted on this poor dog, nor is he going to provide appropriate punishment to the abuser.

The case against Alexander Bernard, the New Haven man accused of stabbing his pit bull mix 29 times because no one in his family "liked her," was continued again Tuesday to Sept. 6.

The case also prompted several state legislators to pen a letter to Scarpellino, asking him to impose serious punishment on Bernard if he were to be found guilty of the animal cruelty charges.

Scarpellino was not happy with the letter and said so in court, which has prompted a group of animal advocates to issue a plea to the judge to recuse himself from the case. They feel that because of the letter and the judge's reaction, he cannot be impartial.

Oh no the poor judge had letters written to him, what a tradegy. GIve the case to someone who cares enough to not decide its just a dog and not worth his time.
