Letter: To the Silt dog thieves

This letter is for the people who stole my friend’s dog out of its own yard in broad daylight. You’re pretty smug now aren’t you? Smug that you have the power to take someone’s pride and joy, or better yet, a life from someone. After all, pets are family, right? Thinking that you did the right thing, feeling righteous that you are above the law, above religion perhaps? I’ll hazard a guess that you’ve done this sort of thing before.

I’ve got news for you: Karma is real, very real, and you might want to be very afraid of it. One little slip-up is all it will take to expose you.

I know this letter won’t bring the dog back or it won’t make you feel guilty or remorseful, or even sorry for what you did. My intent is to shame you and maybe embarrass you, knowing several thousand people will read this letter and those several thousand people now know what you did with an innocent little dog that has no idea why its life has been turned upside down.
