Patrick’s Law

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.

Latest news:

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)…

Have you heard about Patrick? My guess is probably not.Patrick was starved, for who knows how long. News reports have said that Patrick was left for an entire week, unattended, with nothing to eat. Patrick had been stepped over, and stepped around on a staircase in an apartment while those around him ate. Patrick suffered and is still suffering. He became a skeleton of a dog. His bones began to protrude, his ribcage completely visible. Now resembling a corpse, he was placed in a trash bag, and thrown down a garbage chute, nearly 22 stories.But this was not the end for Patrick. On March 16, 2011 as luck would have it, with his last bit of strength, he rustled that garbage bag and a maintenance man who was picking up the trash heard the bag move. Patrick was alive, barely, but he was alive; still clinging onto the hope that someone would feed him, love him, hold him.Patrick wasn’t expected to live through the night. Miraculously, he did. Miraculously, he is still here, getting better, gaining weight. That, in itself, is a miracle.

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.

Thank you,

Go team Patrick !!!
