These two BASTARDS - Gordon and Dougan - deserve a bullet each between the eyes. THAT would be justice.

Sorry I opted out to see the video, but believe these two need to be brought up on animal cruelty charges. There is no excuse for these actions. One is just as guilty as the other. Our youth are going to hell in a hand basket.

Disgusting sadists. The parents will probably try to rationalize the whole thing by saying," It was just a chicken"- yeah, when your juvenile delinquents are raped in juvie Hall, we will say, "Well, they were just stupid kids...."

I would just love to have my son deal with these two. My son is afflicted with Asperger's Syndrome, also known as high functioning autism. It's called high functioning, because cognitive abilities are usually quite high. The social skills part of the brain simply doesn't work the way it does in most people.

Those with Asperger's develop fixations like you would not believe on certain things. One of my son's fixations is animal cruelty. He has gotten into trouble on a few occasions, for beating the crap out of people who were abusing animals. This is not a good thing, but in the case of these two boys, they might feel more empathy for the animals they so mistreat, if they experienced some of the fear, pain, and helplessness that these poor animals endure.

A naughty fantasy on my part, I know. Violence only begets violence, and solves nothing, but I can always dream, can't I?

Noted Rooibos and I'm sorry but I still can't send you a well deserved star. This wasn't a full grown chicken yet either and that made it even worse. That bloke who threw the poor animal to the ground was too well built. I also got an e-mail this morning saying that they want to make it illegal to photograph a cattle farm or Puppy mill, even if you're not trespassing. If the Republicans get it through it'll carry a 25 yr Prison sentence to take photo's of farms or puppy mills. It'll be seen as a felony 1 I think. What's happening in Florida?????

Want to say something about those two bastards? Here is the information:

Hawthorne Middle / High School
21403 Southeast 69th Avenue
Hawthorne, Florida 32640

This school and the teachers have terrible reviews made by the parents who have their kids attending school there.
This is the link where we can all leave a message of what we think, so it is really up to us to let the authorities in that school to know, what is going on with these two idiots. We can attach the link of the video to our message:

I note the perpetrator is wearing a cross which seems somewhat ironic and against the teachings of Jesua to deliberately inflict pain on a chicken for some sort of gratitous enjoyment!

This was done at a high school!!! Where was the princepal or the teachers? They should all be arrested for this cruelty! Those boys deserve a good flogging on thier butts so they can't sit for awhile. Personally I'd like to see them thrashed good, but thats against the law.

I am with William R. We liberals brought this on ourselves with our intolerance of parents disciplining their children through physical means. Unfortunately; this type of behavior will continue unless we put parents back in control of their children. A few sore butts would correct this behavior pretty quickly.

OMG the school needs to be shut down for allowing this type of behavior, the teacher must be fired as he is no better than the ignorant stupid students; the students involved need serious help. This teaches nothing but violence and cruielty. Of course I signed and shared. "This activity teaches violence and cruelty. This must be investigated and those involved severely dealt with. This is inexcusable behavior and must be stopped immediately".

Once again, those kids show me just how far the human race has sunk into the pit of inhumanity. To think, scum like those two, are the future. I expect their parents are sooo proud of them.

Public outcry can and will make a difference. We all must call and email the principal and the school board and demand punishment for all those involved in this sickness and abuse. These kids are sick and found glee in killing this defenseless chicken in a horrific manner.

This is horrible.
I hope the kids don't have younger siblings... I dread think what their relationships with them would be...

Could not get to the petition, but if a link comes later will gladly sign. The girl in the background that sounds like she didn't know what was going on sure doesn't care who she hangs around. Maybe her next boyfriend will treat her like that chicken and she might come to the realization that she needs to get a clue. As far as the morons who did this, they should be body slammed a few times until they're flopping around on the ground.

Does anyone know the legal status of this case? I can tell from the few reports I could find that an investigation was started back when this happened, but what happened after that? Is it in the courts or was nothing done?

COULD NOT watch the video. Things like animal abuse stay with me forever and cause me no end of grief, anger and depression. The intentional torture of a living creature, one that's desperately seeking to escape, crying out however it can, obviously in pain and agony.... the intentional torture of such a being, and ENJOYING it, is a definite sign of mental illness. Unfortunately this world is getting crazier by the minute.
