When I turned two years of age, I got a puppy.
Her name was Betsy. She was a faithful friend and companion for twenty-two years. When she died of old age in the shade of her favorite tree, I tried to look back on her life with happiness.
It was very hard to do. Reflecting on the good times is always hard when you’re miserable.
Animal cruelty is no laughing matter and people who torture and kill helpless pets are absolute monsters. I rank them a half-step below lint on the evolutionary ladder, in fact.
So when I heard about a couple who tied a loyal service dog to a tree and shot it five times, all the while LAUGHING about it, I hoped they hadn’t gotten away with it. I hoped for swift and brutal justice.
And while I wouldn’t call this especially “brutal,” it does qualify as justice.
(By the way, you can view the horrifying video by clicking the link below, but I’d rather post the following heartwarming vid in honor of service dogs everywhere)
Via Right Wing News:
“Marinna Rollins is a veteran who was given a medical discharge from the military due to PTSD. She was assigned a service dog named Camboui, who she called Cam.
Her boyfriend, Jarren Heng, is still on active duty. And together, the two of them committed an awful crime.
They took Cam, a grey and white pitbull, to a wooded area, where they tied him to a tree. Rollins then shot him five times, laughing with Heng, as they took turns filming the brutal crime.
On the video, Heng can be heard saying, ‘Let me hit him once’, while Rollins shot the dog. Rollins can likewise be heard saying, ‘It’s been real … I love you, you’re my puppy, you’re a good puppy, but…’, and after the dog was dead, Rollins can be seen dragging the poor dog’s body around.”
Worse yet, it seems text messages and various posts on social media prove the couple actually planned this.
Thankfully, the authorities have stepped in; Rollins is currently being held on $25,000 bail and has been charged with animal cruelty and conspiracy. Let’s hope Heng gets a similar punishment.
