So many sick people in this world. We don't need them. Hope a vigilantes comes along and does the same to this teen. Is it just me or does there seem to be a lot of horrendous cruelty to animals in Tennessee, Kentucky, Carolina's and Virginia?

this punk thug needs to be put for life or at least in a mental institution for what he did, sick people do this to animals wait until he tries to do it to a person, god forbids, don't wait until then he needs help to be put away or give him time in jail, where are the parents, don't they know about his bizarre behavior i am sure this was before he did this maybe, he tried it in smaller creatures never know. evil and cruel.

"The informant told the Fairfax County Police, the teen became angry when the horse threw him and in a rage hit the white horse as well as the other horses and then slashed the animals with his 22 inch machete which he allegedly always carried."

Another out of control kid. I hope he gets everything they can throw at him. But I was certainly surprised, well not really surprised more like, wtf, at people in Virginia being allowed to carry around 22 inch machetes. I know they've got a crazy legislature and governor, but this is a felony in most civilized states, all by itself. No one noticed this fool and his machete before this? I'd have thought the Zorro outfit a dead giveaway. Not in VA I guess. Just a normal run of the mill armed teen felon wandering the streets with a freaking sword. I mean, really, just what do they expect him to do with that? Trim his nails? This world gets more insane by the day...

What a scum-bag to do something this horrible. Sounds like somebody needs anger management. You know that this this teenager was looking for trouble, by carrying a machete around. A normal person would not do this. I hope this teenager is punished severely for what he did to these poor animals!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I would have liked to petition for a stiff penalty and show public support for bringing justice for animals.

I sure as hell would like to personally escort him to his court date.
What parent allows their psycho kid to stroll around with a machete? Knife throwers that work in a circus? Taliban beheading squad?
This is not normal behavior. I hope the judge throws the book and more than a few horse shoes at this kid.

What too many people don't recognize is that animal cruelty is a public safety issue. I'm repulsed by any animal cruelty but on a practical level, unchecked animal cruelty escalates to cruelty against other helpless creatures like children, the elderly, the homeless and gets worse from there. Serious action should be taken to protect the community from this teenager.

I don't know about anyone else but I weep for what the human species are becoming, there is no compassion or pity anymore. I am sorry to say I am 1 that weeps at a beauty and the beast film, can you imagine the horror I go through on a daily basis when reading about some of the things that a human can do to our animal friends. When will it end?
