Being drunk is no excuse for bad behavior. That's his choice to get drunk, the poor hamster had no choice. Stupid jackass.

I have no sympathy for this jerk. There is no legal punishment high enough that would satisfy justice in a case like this.

9 weeks??? what can anyone learn in nine weeks. he was already unemployed, so he didn't lose his job. in fact, he probably wasn't paying his bills and welcomed the bonanza of free room and board.
