12-year-old Florida girl takes video of father torturing cat, mom gives it to the cops | World issues | Scoop.it

PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. -- Shocking video shot by a 12-year-old girl shows her father abusing the family cat, police say, with allegations of much worse off camera.

 

James Fiengo was arrested Tuesday for hurting the family cat, Joey. Fiengo, of 400 Airoso Blvd., also is accused of abusing Daisy, a female German shepherd, according to a Port St. Lucie police report.

 

Port St. Lucie Animal Control learned of the abuse from Fiengo's wife, who showed animal control the video taken by their 12-year-old daughter. Fiengo is seen squeezing the cat's head and twisting and pulling the cat's ear...

you deserve a life sentence in jail. oh wait  no. you should live your life in jail and being tortured like how you tortured the animals . you dont deserve any pity

Aritra's curator insight, November 27, 2014 10:22 PM

this article writes about how father i PORT ST. LUCIE, starts psychically abusing his pet cat. from watching the video, the father was cussing at the cat for pooping in the garage. The father was squeezing the cats throat, holding the cat by its neck and smacking its face while holding it by its tail. the family also had a pet German shepherd that the father was also accused of abusing. this man was charged for animal abuse and was later arrested. i personally think that the consequence was a bit too light for what he has done. the video is very disturbing.

NH couple wanted for child abuse captured at Universal Studios Florida (VIDEO) | World issues | Scoop.it

ORLANDO, Fla. — A man and woman wanted for child abuse in New Hampshire were put behind bars in Orlando on Wednesday. 

 

Investigators said the two were found at Universal Orlando, after police searched for several weeks.

 

Roland Dow and Jessica Linscott face felony charges, including child abuse and fleeing charges. They will not make an appearance at the Orange County Courthouse, but will soon be extradited to New Hampshire.

 

Investigators say the couple severely beat a 3-year-old boy -- Linscott's son.

 

The child’s grandmother said the boy’s hands were burned and that he needed brain surgery because of injuries to his head.

 

The couple apparently dropped the boy off at a hospital and fled, according to investigators...

Child abuse must stop! They deserve NO mercy for crimes of the helpless.  Every assault should be punished with the same assault to them.  Burn for burn-An eye for an eye. NO xgild should ever be beaten or abused.

Weather is one of the most tangible ways in which the physical environment impacts society.  We depend on sunlight and rainfall, we adapt our behaviors to harsh conditions and we are constantly modifying the our environments by heating and cooling our buildings.  This Henry David Thoreau quote reminds us to acknowledge the powerful influence of the environment and to recognize that technological fixes have their limitations.  “Live in each season as it passes...and resign yourself to the influence of the earth.” --Henry David Thoreau


Question to Ponder: In what ways does the weather shape and influence culture and spatial patterns in your region?  How can we make our communities more handicap accessible during winter storms and other extreme conditions?

Not to mention the snow drifts up to 10-12 feet!

Evan Margiotta's curator insight, March 21, 2015 6:39 PM

Human/Environment Interaction is one of the principles of Geography. Weather is about the simplest form of Human/Environment action there is. Weather and climate effect humans in may ways. Both of these have direct impact on agriculture and because of this the rise of civilization in the fertile crescent. But weather doesn't just dictate the rise of agriculture and civilization it effects us everyday. The picture shows Boston covered in record breaking snow fall. This altered many peoples schedules, closed businesses, canceled sporting events, forced people to spend time shoveling snow, gave work for snow plowers, and all in all effected the entirety of Boston.
