I was just wondering why does animal cruelty hold a longer sentence than domestic violence. Now, don't get me wrong I know animal cruelty is wrong in so many ways, but I've always wondered why is it that men who go around constantly beating women always in most cases get off, but in Michaels Vick's case he got 2 years. Is it because the animal can't defend and remove themselves from the situation? However, if a woman defends herself and shoots the man...she's going to jail. I just don't understand it. I know people love animals and I understand that, but don't we love human beings more? We are the one's that kept life going and keep this country running. This question isn't to come down on anyone that owns animals because Dh has a dog himself and I would hate to see something happen to the dog, but the whole concept is just confusing.

Women and children are limited by what is available and what they have access to. Restraining orders are issued only if the judge is sympathetic, shelters can only hold so many occupants, most shelters don't accept male children over the age of 10/12. Are you really going to leave your son behind but take everyone else? A mother would rarely do that. Leave her baby to be beat in her place. Yeah right. Most women do not press charges because when the man says they will kill you if you do - they are serious. Police can only protect you so much. They can't be your bodyguard. I once worked with a woman who was shot and killed in the parking lot of the police station surrounded by officers. These women know the score. They know they can't leave until they have a plan and can put it into action. cont....

Well, yes he was famous, BUT his case was so horrific, and (the most important part) he was running a huge dog fighting empire. Dog fighting is illegal. He deserves every second he gets behind bars.
