The Old Empire is rapidly becoming the primier authoritarian regime.

If he will be punished for this then should no parents with obese children also feel the States' Just Wrath?

Absolute maddness... Bet you Brits wish you had made tour king sign a Bill of Rights when you still had your knife to his throat eh? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs)

This sounds right! everyday you see people that treat their pets either just like humans or better than humans. I have heard of several cases just like this one where people have had too many animals and they end up shitting all over the place and no one wants to take care of them anymore and eventually they get impounded. Its ok to have an animal but just learn to take care of them. --Ub3rst4r (talk) 04:03, 14 May 2009 (UTC)

If you actually read the article, the dog was smearing shit all through the house and nothing changed through several inspections. He was given a fair chance, and he blew it. There are legitimate situations to have an obese dog; mine came to me with a weight problem (prob. not obese but overweight) that I don't think actually bothered him, and is on a vet-improved diet making great progress!

The dog being obese and he is charged neglect it dos not ad up but the shit part makes sense. It seem the cops mixed up the charges.-- (talk) 12:16, 14 May 2009 (UTC)

Who cares about a stupid fat dog. 6-months of possible prison! Are you joking me! Someone just gas the fat bastard and the whole issue will be done.

tell that to PETA.-- (talk) 01:00, 15 May 2009 (UTC)

perhaps the court could have recommended an in home remedy like an dog exercise wheel or treadmill.

We need stricter animal welfare laws anyway, ups to the Pommies on this one!--Part Time Security (talk) 03:58, 27 June 2009 (UTC) (talk)
