Take a good look at this woman. This is 23-year old Cassandra Danielle Lauderdale and she ranks among the lowest of the low – the scum of the earth. What did she do to deserve these harsh words? She’s a cold-blooded murderer, but you won’t see her on trial anytime soon.
Lauderdale, has been charged with cruelty to animals after she brutally stabbed her dog to death in her bathtub as a house full of people listened in horror as the dog squealed in pain as it died a slow, painful death. A sheriff’s deputy was quoted as saying, Lauderdale said she killed the dog because “she had the right to kill [it] and it was no one’s business.”
These are the words and actions of a severely disturbed individual.
This poor, defenseless animal suffered intense pain at the hands of a woman who could very possibly become one of the nation’s next serial killers. Research has shown that people who abuse, torture and kill animals eventually “graduate” to doing these heinous actions on people. Lauderdale is probably next.
The sad part of this whole situation is obviously the death of the dog, but what’s even sadder is the fact that this degenerate has only been charged with cruelty to animals and been fined $2,500. I am a firm believer that in cases like this, the punishment fits the crime.
If you are pitiful enough to inflict torture and murder another living creature, you deserve to be met with the same fate. I certainly can’t be alone in my thinking. If you look at the newspaper’s website where this story is reported, nearly 100 readers have commented and expressed similar feelings.
Lauderdale is going to be given a slap on the wrist, a night or two in jail, and a fine which she probably can’t even afford to pay. In the mean time a dog is dead and a neighborhood may be harboring the next Jeffrey Dahmer.
