Letter: It’s animal ‘murder’

I am very dismayed to hear that the Deputy DA Tony Hershey has already decided that this teen is not going to prison. Many will say it was only a dog that was shot and killed, but it could have easily been a child or an adult.

This 13-year-old has very serious problems and should be removed from society.  Animal “cruelty” is not the correct term to use, it is animal murder. I urge the DA’s office and the judge that will hear this case, to inflict the toughest and most severe punishment allowed for all crimes committed by this disturbed individual.
