    Animals are pets that have feelings same as humans. Animals deserve to be loved, not abused. People that abuse animals should not be allowed to own animal ever again, which a registery for animal cruelty should be allowed just like a sex offender registery is allowed to protect children. Give animals a voice and protect animals like would protect any memeber of family, friend and United States.

    There is no negative about passing laws that punish more severely the abusers of animals. Only positive. Respect life.

    Mr President, please, make this compassionate voice be heard, for so many dogs, cats and the like, who go unheard, with the suffering by the hands of evildoers. Please extend the righteousness, that they souch deserve, to make our nation great, we must protect our warriors, as true animals in war, as well as humanistic saviors of emotional, and physical healing, for all peoples. To our veterans, our leaders, and to you, and I graced by the, unconditional love of a animal. Far too long, has this travesty, unacceptable mark of distasteful treatment of abuse animal, gone traunethically, unpunished, in the fullest capacity of the laws!!

Laws as mentioned here, above written, with, strength, dignity, and compassion, for truth, please Mr obama or trump hear, their voices** sincerely casper, lilly, lolita!!

    This is a disgrace that people can abuse animals and suffer no consequences. People who post these acts online and Facebook should be charged and immediately put into jail!!!

    Just because they are animals does not mean they don't feel pain. Just because they are animals should not mean they don't deserve to be protected. The people who abuse/torture animals should be held accountable. Sadly, in most states, the law simply regards these creatures as "PROPERTY" when in fact they are our companions, our confidantes, our therapists- our FRIENDS! They have no voice- they depend on us to protect them! Help us hold those who abuse animals accountable for their actions--BE THEIR VOICE!!

    In the following petition, 9 judges were thanked for maximum sentencing in the cases of abuse, all abuse cases were horrific and some were multiple occurrences. We have people in jail for less aggressive and dangerous crimes and yet these were the maximum sentences. I am alarmed and frightened and ask that more is done to protect the American people against these terrible and dangerous people. We applaud the actions of the following Judges and would like to say ?Thank You? to: 1) State Court Honorable Judge Alvin Wong sentenced Aaron Lewis to the maximum sentence of one-year in prison. Lewis locked his pit bull in a closet and left her to die. The tortured dog has left deep claw marks around the door in an attempt to release herself before dying a slow and agonizing death.Continue reading: Examiner.com http://www.examiner.com/pet-rescue-in-national/dekalb-county-man-sentenced-to-prison-after-locking-dog-closet-to-die?CID=examiner_alerts_article#ixzz1rV2UaUeX 2) Honorable Judge Mary Barglund sentenced Nicholas Michael Leisner, 18, and Peter John Sauve, 17 to two to four years in prison for pleading guilty to three counts of torturing/killing an animal for beating three purebred Angus cattle. For more information: Teens get prison for cattle torture - http://bit.ly/I6ZNVx 3) Circuit Judge Honorable David Hansher sentenced Michael Puerling to 6 months in jail for brutally killing a stray cat. Puerling swung the cat by its tail, then smashed the animal into a concrete slab five times, then threw it into a garbage cart. "The cat is a living human animal and doesn't deserve to be basically murdered, which is what happened in this case," Judge Hansher said.

Chiapparelli sentenced Ethan Phillip Weibman to 90 days in prison for killing a short-haired cat named Lucy and the beating of another cat named Lola. Both cats were adopted to Weibman. Court documents say Weibman is suspected of having killed five more cats and kittens.

    Anyone that could hurt an innocent animal is clearly psychopathic and is not a safe person in society. This shouldn't even be an argument, all life is precious!
