COLUMBUS, Ga. -- A Muscogee County grand jury has indicted the man accused of grabbing his son’s 6-week-old puppy by the hind legs and tail on Oct. 17 and slamming it three times to the pavement, breaking its neck.

The Columbus Ledger-Enquirer reported Devon Scott Bell, 22, was indicted for aggravated cruelty to animals, obstruction of a police officer and terroristic threats, according to court records. Reports of what he did to the dog while arguing with his child’s mother sparked outrage last year.

Bell, who had just turned 22 two days before, got into a dispute with the woman at a Winifred Drive home because he felt she wasn’t adequately caring for his 3-year-old son, police said. Witnesses said he started cursing and threatening to kill all the animals in the yard.

This one's hard. Hard because

This one's hard. Hard because I've said on other post not to judge someone before a trial. But if, and "if" seems to be unnecessary, this waste of life killed a puppy as described in the article, he should thank his lucky stars I'm not the judge.

Thoughts of a "super race" of people was Hitler's excuse. What in God's name would cause someone to kill a defenseless animal? No excuse for this idiot to take up oxygen.

There's something seriously wrong with a person who would hurt a defenseless animal.

Ummm, he has the nerve to say

Ummm, he has the nerve to say that his child's mother wasn’t "adequately" caring for his 3-year-old son, yet his reaction to slam a puppy 3 times on the pavement and threaten to kill all the animals seemed like the "adequate" thing to do, to him?
