Don't get me wrong, he got exactly what he deserved.

However....

"“If you hurt a child or hurt an animal in Tallapoosa County, you are going to prison,” Lewis said. “It’s that simple."

If that were the case they would all be vegan in Tallapoosa County, wouldn't they? 

Unless exploiting and killing doesn't fall under the category of hurting....Thinking

This stuff bothers me way more than they should I guess. He definitely deserves 99 years in prison but honestly, how can people not see how far more damage the meat (and other animal products) industries does than one man hurting a few dogs?

Remember that most people have grown up with and have been taught that it is good and natural to eat meat. That's not so easy to change. Convince us one at a time.

#2 Of course. Both me and be vegan have been raised that way too. I've only been vegan for like 1,5 years - before that I ate meat and consumed animals on a daily basis. Trying to inform non-vegans and help them to make a kinder choice is one of the mail goals with this site.

#4 do you mean that you don't eat any animal products or that you eat milk and egg? If I can ask :)

#2 It's not as difficult to change as you might think. Have you tried? Glad

I am living proof that you can change after 50 years and my mom is living proof that you can change after 88 years. You just have to come to understand that it is the morally right thing to do.

It's a matter of fundamental justice.

#8: I prefer good vegetarian food over good animalistic food. We are eating less and less meat and fish.
