Your red herrings are comical, but sad. It appears you are grasping at straws to try and prove your point.<quoted text>
Animal cruelty is not an indicator of a behavior disorder. It is a symptom for 1 specific disorder. It appears you do not understand diagnostic manuals. Lying is a symptom of anti-social personality disorder and yet, it is not an indicator of anti-social personality disorder. Lack of planning/impulsivity is also an symptom of anti-social personality disorder but not an indicator. Anxiety is a symptom of all anxiety disorder but everybody experiences anxiety. Similarly, animal abuse is a symptom of conduct disorder and yet is not an indicator of conduct disorder. Everything that I have mentioned in this paragraph is something that every single person that is walking on the face of the earth has either willingly performed or experienced. You don't know what you are talking about when it comes to diagnostic manuals and until you do, you would do a service to society if you would stop talking about it.
"The lady doth protest too much, methinks." It seems you are trying hard to disprove a proven correlation because acknowledging it would be counterproductive to you because you are an animal abuser. No, again I'm not talking about stepping on ants (unless you go out of your way to do it and receive gratification). The same for rodents, and snakes. How many bunnies, kittens, and puppies have you tortured in your life for no other reason than you wanted to? This is why you don't see animal abuse or cruelty as having implications on society, or as an indicator that the person is 'mentally messed up'. And it is also why you don't believe animal cruelty or abuse deserves jail time, because you don't want to go to jail.
I really wish you were as smart as you think you are. Hopefully you are not employed in a position where you have influence and control over human or non-human animals, for if you are, that state has serious issues with its screening policies and procedures.
