    Animal cruelty is now against the law here in the great land of Arkansas. Those who cannot take care of their pets should be 'taken care of' so-to-speak. Ever read about how many small children are left in cars to suffer and die in the heat? I'm just saying........................some folks are only alive because it's illegal to put them out of our misery.

    Now this:

    Richmond SPCA CEO's dog dies in hot car | HamptonRoads.com | PilotOnline.com

    RICHMOND

    A 16-year-old deaf and blind dog belonging to the CEO of the Richmond SPCA died after being left alone in a hot car for four hours.

    Robin Starr and her husband, Ed, discussed the dog's death in an interview with the Richmond Times-Dispatch. Ed Starr said he put the dog, named Louie, in his wife's car as she prepared for work last Wednesday.

    Robin Starr did not realize the dog was in the car until noon. She took the dog to two clinics, but it died of kidney failure.

    The National Weather Service says the temperature had reached 91 degrees by noon that day.

    The board of the SPCA says it still supports Starr, who does not plan to resign.

    Paramedic: the Starr's case has been posted all over rescues throughout the US tonight, it's an awful story! Same as the one in the OP here.

    To say that this angers/sickens me is an understatement. Crimes against those who can not speak for/defend themselves, such as children, the elderly and infirm, and animals...that's the top of my list right there. I want to go hug my dogs after reading this, but they're at the dog sitter's till Monday. :(

    This is a great post. Note the disparity in the treatment accorded Mr. Starr and the guy the original post was about. Note too the willingness of the SPCA folks to be a bit forgiving.

    Stuff happens. Not all bad things that happen need to be crimes or need to be prosecuted even if they are crimes.

    It really wasn't that many years back that this sort of incident was nothing more than an "accident" which at most merited one line in the local rag and a few shakes of the head ---but was in no way considered criminal.

    I'm not endorsing what was done, but I do not think this merits much of a punishment.

    There have been rare incidents where parents accidentally left kids in cars and were not prosecuted. In one I recall, a man drove to work with a baby in the car and forgot that he was supposed to take him to child care. The circumstances were such that there was no prosecution.

    Dogs (much as we love them) are dogs. They are not people.
    Why am I not surprised at your lack of empathy and distorted views that often border infuriating. It's seems you have a very cavalier attitude about children being abused as well as animals.

    I sure hope that for animals everywhere you do not have any, you are not worthy of an animal that would lay down it's life for your sorry a@@.

    Great movie reference!

    I place the value of human life far above that of any animal. I have three dogs. I am responsible for their care, and I meet that responsibility. Lots of people view animals as disposable, I don't. However, lots of people view children as disposable too.

    We have dominion over the animals. At least that is how I view it. With that comes responsibility too. Sadly, many people do not measure up to the responsibility they have been entrusted with.
    This is as close to my view as I have read in this thread.

    I think there should be laws against animal cruelty, especially animals that, in our culture, are revered. Slaughter a cow in India and I imagine you would get one reaction. Eat a dog in Korea and I imagine a completely different reaction. Dogs are a treasure in our culture and to neglect their care should be a punishable offense.

    The real problem I have with the comments is the comparison with human children. The fact is that ANY human deserves and is entitled to more consideration that ANY dog. And the fact that some who claim to understand the difference are indifferent to killing children before they are left in the hot car is particularly disturbing.

    In my opinion, they are both morons and should be prosecuted for this.
