constantly people are saying" I can't believe what those teens did to that cat" I can. This is what happens when you are no longer allowed to disipline your children. Yes i do believe that the parents hsould be held responsible. One of then is in violation of their probation for previously setting a sibling on fire. " what the hell is wrong with these kids" better yet what is wrong with their parents? and as for the other two begging them to stop. Have you ever heard of a plug in or a cord. you just go and pull it out of the wall. voila no more power. They could have stopped the torture and killing of that innocent cat if they wanted to. when are people going to wake up and realize that teens need more than just smack on the wrist.

What a dope.

Everyone knows that cat must be cook with Wok and stir-fry vegetables like water chestnut, broccoli, bok choy and mushroom.

Microwave very bad for cat meat. Make no good for eat.

The posting above says it all. The three other boys could have run for help, called 911, stopped him physically....after all two of the other three were the same age, 15 yrs. And they could have plulled the plug from the wall, as suggested above. They are just as guilty. They should all be put in a mental hospital for life. As soon as I read it I said that if they'd do that to a cat today, they'll do it to a kid tomorrow. Sure enough, this morning's paper....the boy had set a sibling on fire a few days earlier. Why was he even free to walk the streets.To those who suggest "it was only a cat"...shame on you. Torture is torture, and torture on a helpless, passive creature, animal or human, is the ultimate sick, sick , sick.
I've had nightmares every night since reading this. What must it be like for the family who owned the cat, cared for and loved it. Its not as much the cat dying as how it died. It makes my stomach churn.
What a sick society today, that not only do kids do these things and get away with it, but that some people would dare to say "it was only a cat"

Jail is to good for them. We need the death penalty in this country. And lets do away with this young offender crap. Old enough to do the crime, old enough to do the time. And their parents should also be charged. These kids are sick. If one has already set a sibling on fire and now a cat how long are you gonna let this go on. Until he is Canada's next Robert Pickton. Their parents are obviosly very irresponsible and so is the justice system. My condolences to the family who lost their little family member.

Next to the Jamie Bulgar incindent in Great Britain, these are the most disgusting and depraved kids I've heard of. And their parents obviously haven't being paying attention and should share in the blame. As usual, the kids will get a slap on the wrist and told not to do it again because next time we might slap their wrist a little harder! To me, people get so upset and vengeful because they know the kids will get away with it. We see it time and time again. We lose faith in our system of law and order.

Unbelieveably, this morning on a local Edmonton radio station, Magic 99, the morning announcers said the owners of the cat should share the blame because they didn't have an alarm system and left the cat in the house when they left! Gimme a break. Blame the victim.

We often hear the legal system talk about "community standards" when it suits them. Why not let the community deal with this with their "standard", what ever that might be;)

Perhaps the two boys who asked the other two to stop what they were doing and took to the basement were afraid to leave the house for fear of reprisal from the other two. It's hard to know what was going through their minds - they could have been in shock at the very thought of what was taking place or could take place. Clearly this is a horrible situation however until the facts come out in court as to who did or failed to do and why, I think we should refrain from passing judgment. I've had the privilege of having pets for the better part of my life and I've spoken out on behalf of other people's pets knowing I would be in hot water for doing so. But I've always believed that since animals cannot speak for themselves caring individuals must speak for them. By the same token, I don't believe in passing judgment on anyone until I know all the facts.

I know enough about the facts to make a judgement, thanks. These are not kids, in my eyes. If they think they're big enough to torture and kill any living thing, let alone one who/that can't stand up for themselves, they are big enough to be considered adults. As with all crimes, I feel the perpetrator should suffer the same way the victim suffered. The electric chair would be too fast. Bring back the death penalty with a new twist! Microwave the so-and-sos!

Donna...I hope you don't have kids! That is an incredibly lame excuse! Perhaps they hid in the basement??? I have children. My eldest was involved, though she claims as an obvserver, in an incident that was a far cry from causing physical harm to a living being. It was still guilt by association!! She was there and did nothing to stop it, therefore she was still guilty! I stood by her, but I still enforced the decision of her community service and made darn sure she did every hour of it.
The courts are obviously unable to punish minors who commit crimes thanks to the blessed young offenders act. Heaven forbid that minors, or their parents, should accept responsibility for their actions!! The teens involved in this incident will undoubtedly continue on their path. Had it been an infant they put in the microwave would you feel differently? It would have been just as defenseless as a cat. Would that make it more appalling to you? Out of curiosity, where do YOU draw the line? When should a person be held accountable for their actions whether they are a minor or not?

Char - clearly you missed the point. I wasn`t aware there was section in the Criminal Code dealing with ``Guilt by association``.

Mike, I hope you never reproduce. I'll bet you're inbred and live in a shitty house with dial-up. I also hope you don't have pets because you do not deserve them. You deserve to die alone.

Also, my apologies for the dial-up remark. Not to Mike, just to anyone who might be on dial-up who got offended by that.

yeah - you sound exactly like one of my next door neighbours who is more worried about my husky playing outside in the snow in winter, which she loves, and whats going on in her neighbours backyards, instead of spending time teaching her grade 3 kid how to count out pennies, quarters, nickels, dimes, loonies and toonies, which i did.

have we met?
