    Jones planned to mutilate, maim and kill one of the dogs.

    Jeffrey Dahmer started out this way also. It's one thing to be facinated with one's internal organs as a child. This guy is 18, I wonder what's going on in his mind? Odd the type of dog he chose to steal and torture. Most pit bulls I know wouldn't give in so easily to such treatment willingly, regardless of how proper they were raised by their owners.

    Now here is a perfect example where someone should step in IMMEDIATLY and work with this child! He obviously has some problems and if he's not helped he will be BACK on the news for killing a human being!

    It's really hard for me to understand the pure EVIL that would drive someone to want to do this!

    Yeah, he should be tried right along side with those kids that beat another child and taped the brutal beating. What is happening to the children??

    This young man has some problems and serious ones. Why would you want to steal them and then kill the puppies. That is crazy to me. He needs jail time and the judge should order him to spend time and help out at an animal shelter.

    Is this some kind of NFL tryout?

    Isn't it true that people who abuse animals are also prone to abusing their spouses and children? This young man needs to be watched CAREFULLY. Lord knows we don't need people like him walking the streets.
