Dog beating just horrible

Published in the Rockland County Journal News, 6/30/05

(Original publication: June 30, 2005)

I recently was horrified to read the story of the West Nyack man who was charged with beating his girlfriend's dog so severely that it had to be put to sleep.

I was pleased, though, to learn that this type of crime is a felony under state law.

We must put pressure on our lawmakers to enact even stronger laws that would be commensurate with these acts (such as mandatory fingerprinting of the perpetrators), if there even can be anything that could compensate for violence so horrible. We must continue to speak for those who have no voice.
