    People who do such things do have some truly scummy mental issues. Fact is everyone pays the price for what they do here so that special place is reserved right here in the world that is the valley of Jehosaphat.

    People who do things like that are often seriously mentally ill. They may be born without a capacity for empathy.

    They need to be stopped. I think it's interesting that we only hear the platitude, 'hate the sin, love the sinner' when it comes to homosexuality. Why do we not have a similar view when it comes to those who committ acts of violence and cruelty toward others? Hate the violence and cruelty--love the purity of being underneath it.

    It comes down to whether we consider human beings to be essentially flawed or whether we think all beings have an essence of divinity within them, regardless of their actions.

    The attitude we have toward people who are this damaged says a great deal about who we are, and how far from their cruelty we have progressed.

    Almost all serial killers start off first by torturing animals.

    I'm aware of that. That's why we have to stop them before they progress any further. Torturing animals is a sign of severe mental illness.

    Yes they do. What do you suggest? Why couldn't mankind stop the Ted Bundy's, Jeffery Dahmer's, John Wayne Gacy's of our time? We can put a man on the moon, build massive weapons and machines, but get inside a humans mind to try to make them not do evil, hmmmmmmmmmmm........................

    I'd have to disagree a bit with the "all who torture animals/people" are going to turn into serial killers. I have a bit of personal experience in seeing such persons in action. (Not willing to go into all the exact details on here about it.)

    I look at those same people today more than forty years later and I see the forty years of pain and stress they have lived and live daily. I would not trade them any portions of their lives.
