In for Five

This morning, local news sources reported about a woman and her daughter in Roseville who were burgled, and during the course of the burglary, some piece of crap (or possible pieces of crap) killed the family kitten by putting the kitten in the washing machine and turning it on. The Michigan Humane Society has offered $2,000 as a reward for the case, and I'm not sure the right way to do this or if it will actually mean anything, but I am going to figure out how to add $500 of my money to the reward. I'll call the Humane Society tomorrow to figure it out. I'm not a rich man, but this is the kind of B.S. that is above and beyond unacceptable. There are so many things in our lives that are completely out of our control, crap like this that we can control just cannot happen. On top of all this, many a study shows that people who torture and kill pets are those who are most likely to become sociopaths and murderers.

Somewhere out in the world, a terrible person is bragging to a friend about a successful burglary, and maybe with some luck and enough financial prodding, that friend will rat out their friend. On The Free Press website someone commented that financial incentives aren't helpful and that the police should be left to do their job, and I agree with the second part of the thought, but shit like this can't fly.
