Reno had an opportunity to make an example of this man, and the judge dropped the ball. Jail time is fine, he needed to be fined financially.

only 4 months are you frigging kidding me? Thats a joke not even a slap on the wrist like Allan said teh judge had an opportunity to make an example out of this degenerate now the only message that judge sent to everone in Reno is that you can pretty much toss a dog to its death with little to no worry about reprecutions disgusting and shameful thanks Kelly fo rposting
