I never made a comment before but this got me really upset!!!! I don't even have cats but not only was this a cruel act but someone could have easily been injured. What parents let their kids pack rifles in their cars? These families should think about movin out of town cause they are gonna be well known in a humiliating way!!! Hope this judge nails then and parents should be held responsible also!!!!

Yes, they are cats and not human beings, but these were cruel acts by teenagers. Most of these cat owners love their pets, and sometimes pets can be like "fur kids" to their owners. The thought of these cats suffering, and teens taking pleasure in killing them is really sick.
Most serial killers start out with killing and torturing animals, and then move on to humans. It was good that these kids were caught before they moved onto other "prey". I hope they are held accountable and get help.
The teenagers should be held accountable for their actions. I hope to the fullest extent the law allows.

They say it starts with animal cruelty....and then what - they advance to livestock near the roads and then what - bicycle riders on the road or children???
Anyone who says that "it was just a cat", isn't looking at where it could have ended if they hadn't been stopped. Also, what would the "just a cat" people have thought if these little Hellions had injured or killed one of their pets ?????
