This action alert expires on Oct 1, 2006!<br><br><br><br><br><br>
Two Atlanta brothers are in custody at the Fulton County jail charged with the torture death of a five-month old puppy and trashing a local apartment complex.<br><br><br><br>
Seventeen-year old Joshua Molder and 18-year old Justin Molder are being held without bond.<br><br><br><br>
The Molder brothers stand accused of covering a puppy with paint, hog tying it, trying to set it on fire and when that didn't work, baking the puppy to death in an oven.<br><br><br><br>
As you may know, the connection between animal cruelty and interpersonal violence has been established for many years. FBI Supervisory Special Agent Allen Brantley was quoted as saying "Animal cruelty... is not a harmless venting of emotion in a healthy individual; this is a warning sign." Joshua and Justin Molder's actions in this case meet several of the factors that are considered high-risk for future violence against humans, as outlined by Dr. Randall Lockwood.<br><br><br><br>
Please help ensure that justice is served in this unthinkably cruel case. Take a moment to send a polite letter to the prosecutor in this case, asking for vigorous prosecution, as well as the maximum jail time, a heavy fine and mandatory psychological counseling if the Molders are convicted.<br><br><br><br><br><br><span style="color:#FF0000;">Please write to this District Attorney urging him to seek a tougher sentence for these teens. What they did to that Five month old puppy was just heartless.</span><br><br><br><br><br><br>

I read about this & signed the petition a while back. (I also posted it as a bulletin on MySpace in hopes of getting my animal-loving friends to sign, as well.)<br><br><br><br>
It's horrific to believe that anyone could be so cruel. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/bigcry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":cry:"> That poor, poor little puppy... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/bigcry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":cry:">

I dunno why but this quote bugs me, it's almost like he's saying it would just be a "harmless venting of emotion" if they ONLY did it to non-human animals and didn't move on to harm humans too, and the only reason people should be worried about it is because it's a warning that they may go on to harm humans.<br><br><br><br>
Well either way I signed the petition and hope these sickos get the maximum punishment possible for such a twisted crime.
