Why aren't the parents or teachers saying anything to these disgusting children? I would kick their ass, if they were mine! Great adult supervision! Yes it's ok to taunt another living thing. What do you expect in this world we live in today?

Karma is finally catching up to this scum animal abuser.
A federal judge in New York has tossed rapper DMX's bankruptcy filing, making him fair game for creditors.
The Journal News reports that a bankruptcy judge in White Plains dismissed the 42-year-old rapper's July 29 Chapter 11 filing on Friday.
The hip-hop star's real name is Earl Simmons. The judge's move means he could lose his possessions including his share in a home in suburban Mount Kisko.
Simmons' biggest debt is $1.3 million in child support owed to some of the 10 children he has fathered.
U.S. Trustee Tracy Hope Davis said Simmons failed to provide trustworthy information in his bankruptcy filing.

What compels people get a dog only to keep it isolated outside, away from the family?
The experts say many of these dogs will never really bond with owners who interact with them so little.When the puppy is no longer cute and the children grow tired of the care they promised to provide, when the destructiveness escalates or the neighbors complain about the noise, it's often just easier to dump the dog than solve the problem.
I have always had difficulty understanding why people want to keep dogs outside. If keeping a beautiful house and yard are of the utmost importance to you, then don't get a dog. If you know someone in your family can't abide a dog in the house, for whatever reason, then don't get a dog. If you can't let a dog be part of your family, then don't get a dog.
You don't get the benefits of companionship from a dog you see so little. You don't even get much in the way of protection from the pet who has no access to the house. And don't count on outdoor dogs as an early warning system. These animals often become such indiscriminate barkers that you couldn't tell from their sound whether the dogs are barking at a prowler or at a toddler riding a tricycle down the street. Besides, people who keep outdoor dogs seem to become quite good at ignoring the noise they make, as any angry neighbor can vouch.
Outdoor dogs often become a problem to their owners. Bored and lonely, these animals develop any number of bad habits. They dig craters in the yard. They bark endlessly day and night. They become chewers of outdoor furniture, sprinkler heads and siding. And sometimes, without the socialization all dogs need, they become aggressive, ready to bite anyone who comes into their territory.
If you're considering getting a puppy or dog with the intent of keeping him exclusively outside, please reconsider -- for the animal's sake as well as your own and your neighbors'. For those who love pets, a pristine home is nothing compared to the pleasures of living with an animal who's really bonded to you.
If you have a dog who has been banished because of behavior problems, find someone to help you turn the situation around. Ask your veterinarian for a referral to a behaviorist or trainer who can show you how to overcome the things that are driving you crazy, whether it's house-soiling, uncontrolled chewing or just the ill-mannered exuberance of a dog who doesn't know any better.
Allergies are a tad trickier, but an allergist may be able to help, along with attention to keeping the house and pets cleaner, using air cleaners and turning bedrooms into no-pet zones for allergy-free sleep.
It's worth the effort. Once you have a dog you can welcome into your home and your heart, you'll start to reap the benefits of a relationship that's finally being realized to its fullest potential. And that's good news for you both.

Imagine you arrived home today to find your beloved pet missing?
That’s exactly what happened to Nayou in Bangladesh. The nine-year-old boy came home from school and his precious dog Tommy was gone.
Nayou was frantic because unsuspecting dogs in countries like Bali, Bangladesh and the Philippines are needlessly being killed to halt the spread of rabies.
It doesn't have to be this way
In the time you’ve taken to read this email, more dogs will have lost their lives to the same cruel death Tommy did.
Innocent dogs are caught with tongs and injected with a lethal dose of poison, their deaths would be agonising. People believe that by killing dogs they will stop rabies. They won’t.
We are showing governments that there are proven humane and effective solutions.

On the Kabak Koyu beach in southwestern Turkey, a woman is throwing a ball for the dog while her child crawls around in the sand. Small children are, of course, artful escapees, and suddenly the child is going full-bore straight at the ocean. The spaniel, dropping playtime immediately, races down to the surf and plops down in the sand between the child and the waves, drawing the family's attention just as the adventurous youngster is about to hit the water. One commenter wrote, "Face it. Dogs are better than humans." After seeing this video, it's hard to disagree.

Now this is one death threat I can handle!
Michael Vick has been back in the NFL for four seasons since the dog-fighting scandal that derailed his life and career.
Apparently, some people have not forgotten.
The Eagles quarterback was supposed to appear at an autograph signing at Buffalo Wild Wings in York, Pa., but it looks like the owner received death threats and was forced to cancel the event.
NOT SO BRIGHT
Find out who tops our list of the most stupid athletes in sports.
From the CBS 21 website:
Joe Bartolo told me this afternoon the signing was postponed after he claims death threats were made against him, his wife Jamie -- the owners of JJ Cards N Toys -- and their family for organizing Vick's appearance in October at a local Buffalo Wild Wings restaurant.
Those making the threats were upset the Bartolos would bring Vick to the area. Vick served 18 months in federal prison for running an illegal dogfighting ring. Bartolo told me thousands of threats were coming in from all the country. He even had to shut down the store's Facebook page.
This isn’t the first time Vick has been forced to cancel public appearances because of death threats. In March, he canceled a book signing in Atlanta (where he used to play) and Philadelphia (where he plays now).
Last October, Vick admitted to owning a dog, and got similar backlash about it. Here was his statement at the time:
"I understand the strong emotions by some people about our family's decision to care for a pet. As a father, it is important to make sure my children develop a healthy relationship with animals. I want to ensure that my children establish a loving bond and treat all of God's creatures with kindness and respect. Our pet is well cared for and loved as a member of our family. This is an opportunity to break the cycle. To that end, I will continue to honor my commitment to animal welfare and be an instrument of positive change."

When Eldad Hagar from Los Angeles-based Hope for Paws came across Cadence in a dark alley, she was covered with bloody wounds. Because of the extent of her injuries and their various stages of healing, veterinarians believed the pit bull had been used as a dogfighting bait dog. They cleaned and stitched her up, and within 24 hours the resilient cutie was kissing volunteers. Watch this uplifting video of Cadence's recovery, a transformation which could be seen as a testament to the power of kindness and second chances. Cadence is now waiting for someone to adopt her and take her to her forever home.

We defeated Christine Quinn and she won't be in the runoff. 85% of New York City Democrats voted for Anybody But Quinn.
Quinn was the clear front-runner and pundits were talking about how she might win the primary without a runoff. We didn't give up then.
Instead, we changed the narrative about Quinn. We made sure voters knew she was she was no friend to animals. We got that out there thanks to you and the results last night show just how much humane voters mattered.
That's a big victory for us and for all animal heroes in New Yorkers and on behalf of the whole Anybody But Quinn coalition, I can't thank you enough for how you contributed to this.
