Would you have arrested this juvenile? (see inside).
Fire Department received a call on a hung cat in a tree. I was close and curious and stopped by the location. The cat was not in the tree, but had jumped down and went back into the owners house. Their son, age 13, stated he hated that cat and wished that it were dead.
He not only made his wish, but he followed through with it. You guessed it…..he nuked the hated cat in the kitchen microwave. That was a mess. Son was arrested for animal cruelty and taken to juvenile detention. Question: should this child have been simply arrested or taken for physcological examination?
