So much for Respect for Life

Posted on October 4, 2014 at 9:40 AM

 

Reaction to article on the front page of the New York Times, 9/30/2014, “He Kicked a Stray Cat and Activists Growled.”

 

Andre Robinson, age 22, who kicked a stray cat and then posted a video of it in FaceBook, doesn’t look like a bad guy and the cat is a beautiful animal, so what went wrong? The Indians, who lived here first, certainly had respect for life and for nature, and would apologize to a tree when they had to cut it. What happened to our so-called culture? Do we really believe that Andre would benefit from going to jail, to a hell-hole like Rikers Island? What would he learn? Nothing. I think he deserves the following:

Work doing community service with animals, and learning to love and respect a

wonderful stray cat who’d eat thousands of rodents in a life time

Donate any money he’d make from the profits of his publicity stunt to organizations

that protect animals

Read “The Life of Pi” and see the film – the story of a teenager from India who has to

survive a boatride on the ocean with a tiger.
