Deranged kid attempts dog murder
Hoboken411 reader Rob ‘shopped this image together of “Superdog” zapping the rock-wielding kid to oblivion!
Here’s a horrible example of how screwed up some children can become without appropriate parenting.
From Hoboken411 reader Susan:
“I was at Church Square Park this past weekend. Sometime between 4 and 4:30 I saw someone’s dog, a white, cropped small dog looking a little like a large Havanese or Llaso Apso. The dog was tied up beside a stroller, right inside the 4th and Park entrance, by the chess tables. The owner was nowhere to be seen. The animal was still there at 5 when I left.
A boy of about 9 came over to aggravate the dog. He had a rock the size of his fist in his hand and three separate times he approached the dog to hit it with the rock. He was not playing–he’d hit a bird with the rock earlier. The only reason this psychopathic brat stopped was that the dog barked and growled and jumped at him to scare him off–and it worked. This wasn’t a vicious animal–he did nothing when other dogs, kids and adults went past–he just understood that this boy intended to harm him. The dog was tied on a short leash and could not have gotten away.
To answer the inevitable question, I was too far away to do anything, and I couldn’t leave the area I was in unless I wanted to take my young child with me.
The point is that this charmer of a child isn’t alone. There are all kinds of people in Hoboken, and a few are more than happy to taunt, tease and injure helpless animals. Please don’t tie your dogs where you can’t see them and come to their defense if needed.”
Giving a kid a “lesson” (if you know what I mean) used to be an acceptable form of discipline and an appropriate right of passage to adulthood back in the day.
Nowadays, you look at someone funny, and off to jail you go. This kid needs discipline, and all it seems he’s gonna get ia ass-kissing and special treatment. Start the “jail” count-down timer now.
