Some one should have a crack at beating him

I really can’t understand the mentality of someone who would beat 32 seals to death with a club.

The NZ Herald reports:

The second man convicted for his part in beating 23 fur seals to death on the Kaikoura Coast has been sentenced to eight months’ home detention.

Jemaal Peter Roy Large, 38, was sentenced in Blenheim District Court today on two charges of wilful ill-treatment of animals. He will also serve 200 hours’ community service.

The seals were beaten to death with a galvanised steel pipe at the Ohau Point seal colony in 2010. 

Another man, Jason Trevor Godsiff, pleaded guilty in 2011 and was convicted and sentenced to two years’ imprisonment, reduced on appeal to eight months’ home detention.

Department of Conservation spokesperson Dave Hayes said he was pleased the two men had been held to account for their actions.

They haven’t been held to account at all. I mean what is the rationale behind killing seals? Apart from psychopathic behaviour.

Psychopaths like this often go on to beat and kill humans such is their lack of empathy or remorse.

Community service and/or home detention isn’t enough.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.
