This is the first post I'm making on this unfortunate situation. I'm sure you ask any defendent and they'll all say they are innocent, but I admit, that my actions caused the death of an animal, but those who know me, know that I am one of the biggest animal lovers around. I grew up with several cats, dogs, even squirrels and raccoons in my house. I come from a very loving family who have always had a big heart for animals. And what happend was certainly not intentional. I lost my temper and had no idea the cat would be hurt by my actions. Its something that I have to live with the rest of my life. If people out there think that I meant to do what I did, your wrong, not only did I loose someone who is so dear to my, and her family who I cared about so much, but I wake up every single night with nightmares and have to carry such sin. And I'm still young so I didn't know how the media can portray a story so "one-sided". They make me out to be a monster. It's true that accident or not, I did a terrible thing, but I am getting the help I need with my anger, and I enlisted in the Navy. I can't stand to see in the papers it says "the cat wouldn't play so he got angry and killed it". First of all, that is 100% false. Who says that?! I lost my temper and kicked a bed. I had NO intension of hurting the cats, truth is I didn't even think of them being under there. I lost my temper and I was wrong, I didnt "attack" or intend on hurting them. So before everyone is so quick to judge, find out both sides of the story. And jail was the best thing for me. I didn't just sit and rot, I attended church everyweek and became much closer to God, and went for anger management, and I worked. It was a real eye opening experience. It's what you make of it, it's a place I will never see again, but a good experience. Well I hope my message has told another side to the story. I am very conscious of my appearence and I hate to think people think bad of me, what I did was an accident and I couldn't be farther from who I really am. I'm not a bad person, I just make bad decisions sometimes, but I learn from my mistakes and I don't make them again. And please dont talk badly about Sara. I still talk to her all the time and we dont need people who don't know us, acting like they do and passing judgement. Thank you and I hope my message is well recieved.

So let me get this straight: they had you for throwing the two cats and seriously injuring them but let YOU PLEAD TO A MISDEMEANOR so the girlfriend won't have to testify? What a load of nonsense! And now you want to parlay that into an enlistment in the Navy. You piece of trash! And arrogant! I doubt anyone with any sense of right and wrong is talking badly ABOUT SARA. You're the problem here, pal. Don't get me started on why you have AOL access in prison.

Wow.......I understand how the media can make a story very one sided and I do believe you are sorry. I mean...who wouldnt be? Its normal for a mentally stable and healthy individual to feel guilt. What you did was disgusting and it ruined my day actually after I read the story. I dont believe your story though..but I believe you are sorry. Who kicks a bed hard enough to kill a cat...without breaking a foot????
