building momentum…and then went bust…??? people don’t let ego and control get in the way, please…
please see my new post about Patricks law/movement split…
and the info about serial cyberbullies…
beautiful Progress Report on Patrick on Life with Dogs and there is a must watch video.
ok, am confused, this from the Patrick’s Law facebook page…people are/were excited and want to do something, chomping at the bit and she put them all out to dry??? why???
I have removed and banned the Patricks Law Movement pages. If anyone posts a link to them, they will similarly be deleted and banned. I have no time for nonsense. Anyone whose efforts are counter-productive, ego-based and selfish, and NOT focused on the big picture, are not welcome here.
clearly tying a dog up for a week or more hoping someone will come along and take care of it is a pathetic excuse. Patrick was clearly starved for more than a week, too.
Write letters to the media, to our legislators, make phone calls. Phone calls made to the NJ Prosecutor and Mayor of Newark Cory Booker (go like his facebook page and speak up) resulted in upping Kisha Curtis’ charges from disorderly to torture and torment doubling her possible sentencing… not enough but she’s still in jail on another warrant from doing some other criminal act.
Do it for Patrick to honor Patrick to honor all the other dogs who have been and are being abused. Do it for your children because you want them to live in a place that punishes criminals like Curtis. Do it for yourself and your world. Because you want to live in a world where animals and people and this planet are no longer treated like garbage !!!
Here’s a sample letter: (I edited it a bit)…
This is when Patrick’s life, my life, and the lives of 50,000+ people worldwide changed.
Now you would think, Patrick’s abuser would receive severe jail-time for the malicious neglect that Patrick received that almost ended his life. Patrick’s abuser faces a MAXIMUM of 18 months in prison and a fine of $3,000.00. While this offense happened in New Jersey, Pennsylvania offers even less time and fines for those who abuse and neglect.
“Cruelty to animals is defined as: “wantonly or cruelly illtreats, overloads, beats, otherwise abuses any animal, or neglects any animal as to which he has a duty of care, whether belonging to himself or otherwise, or abandons any animal, or deprives any animal of necessary sustenance, drink, shelter or veterinary care, or access to clean and sanitary shelter which will protect the animal against inclement weather and preserve the animal’s body heat and keep it dry.” This is a summary offense with a fine of $50-750 and/or imprisonment up to 90 days. “
Oh, didn’t I tell you? Patrick is a dog. A pitbull who is around one year of age, a puppy, a baby.
There is a movement happening across the United States. We NEED to change these laws. Over 50,000 people have banned together in Patrick’s name and vowed to change animal cruelty laws. If someone can starve a puppy and throw him down a trash chute, what will they do with their children? Law enforcement and ASPA has well documented that people that abuse animals often abuse people, too.
Sadly, Patrick is not the only one. There are animals being abused in every corner of the world, and this continues to happen because there is no real punishment for the abusers. Pearson, Hope, Lancelot, and Sprout are other dogs who have been severely abused by ways of neglect and physical abuse. Help our voices be heard.
Go team Patrick !!!
