Remember the guy who tossed the dog into traffic?

  1. http://www.cnn.com/2003/US/West/07/2...eut/index.html

    Andrew Burnett, who threw a dog into traffic in a fit of road rage after a fender-bender with the dog's owner, had his 3 year prison sentence upheld by the California Supreme Court yesterday.

    I don't know that more jail time is gonna help this guy's anger management problem or not. Maybe he'll think next time before he acts.

    Nurse Ratched...yep...I remember that story very well. I also remember seeing that woman on Barbara Walters....so sad. I don't think he would like to meet me....I just adore animals.

    I certainly hope he thinks before he acts the next time...because I am afraid the pet lovers in the world will throw him out of a car!

    I know a Doberman that would like to meet him. She would like to help educate him on why he should not be cruel to animals.

    I think they ought to paint him up as a firehydrant and stand him on the street corner for three years instead.

    I gotta agree that this guy needs something, but I think it's sad that a guy who hurts a dog gets more punishment that the sick b******s that molest children. I don't care how nice of a priest you are. You mess with kids, they ought to give you to this sicko who will throw you out in the traffic.

    Other foot.

    Thanks Stevielynn!

    I love my animals,- I've got more than 20- But, I see so many rapists and child molestors get off scott free, I have a hard time seeing the justice.

    The jerk deserves whatever he gets.

    I think the sentence is excessive.
    WE are the ones (or at least californians are) who will have to pay to support him in prison.
    Surely there is a better way to punish him than sending him to the pen.
    I'd like to see some more creative sentencing out there.
