Dear Judge Lively and County Attorney Henkes,

I have learned of an extremely disturbing and malicious cases of animal cruelty in which Mr. Randy Klatt deliberately caused the suffering and death of two dogs which were companions to his neighbors and hung one outside on a school bus route for children to witness. These alleged incidents occurred in March and September 2011. I am writing today to pursue you to make use of every possible route available to investigating this hideous crime in order to effectively charge and prosecute Mr. Klatt and sentence him to the harshest penalty. This sadistic crime to the voiceless animals causing unimaginable agony, fear, and death is incomprehensible. Simply imagine the distress & endangerment in children and adults who witnessed the tortured animal on display.

When I try to comprehend such motive animal abusers use to subject defenseless animal victims to such malicious, heinous acts of brutality, I fail on all counts. To voluntarily engage in such cruelty suggests sadistic tendencies, and this personís actions, causing death lacks morality regarding other living beings and a gross disrespect for the law. In fact, a person who shows such a remarkable lack of compassion towards non-human animals has the ability to show such indifference towards human animals. This link between animal and human abuse has been established, and if society excuses Mr. Klattís criminal behavior, or agrees to a lesser punishment, we only harm ourselves by unjustly nullifying cruelty as acceptable behavior.

Please respect the victims by penalizing the guilty; doing so will demonstrate your commitment to justice, responsibility, and integrity, attributes unquestionably necessary in a legal setting: rejecting cruelty by maintaining an unyielding position towards it would be a model for all community members and would serve to characterize this type of behavior as both impermissible and punishable.

I know your time is limited and I thank you for your attention to this urgent issue. Thank you.

Henriette Matthijssen, Canada,

PS. I could not force myself to watch the video, I just could not. I am sure it would have been way too distressing. The picture and description are both eloquent (and distressing) enough...
