Satan reserves a special place in hell for abusers who target kids, old people, and animals.
One more reservation came up this week on the waiting list.
Some soulless incarnation of evil apparently lighted a puppy on fire and, according to the police report, might have run over the suffering canine as well.
A driver spotted the dog in Oak Cliff, Dallas Fire-Rescue extinguished the flames, but the puppy perished, cementing Belial’s return to the underworld.
Until he or she gets there, though, we have a budding Ted Bundy in our midst, and oh, good for us. Psychological studies of serial killers and sociopaths show a typical escalation of abuse against insects and small mammals before moving up the food chain to humans.
One commenter on Frontburner stated the issue quite well, I think, when he wrote that abusers such was this “are degenerate monsters whose impotence as a person is glaring.”
Lacking a little in the boy-bits category, perhaps.
Abuser, party of one, your table is ready.
