Firefighters kill kittens...
I can not believe Firefighters would do this.
This is really twisted, sick and sad. I hope
these clowns get the maximum sentence and
share a cell with "Bubba". And I hope Bubba
gets some pay back. And these f-ers need to
be fined and employment terminated.
Just playing the Devils Advocate
If these were rats they killed, would people be reacting differently?
Could these animals have been considered rodents or pests if they were in the firehouse trash cans?
If you had a rat in your rat trap, and it was still alive, how would you finish it? (I use a hammer)
Or would you leave it to suffer in the trap? Afterall it is just a dirty rat.
Have you ever killed a spider just because it was there?
Look deep inside yourself, if a cat has rights, so does any other living creature.
The story does not give enough details to make any conclusions of guilt. Be the americans you claim to be and wait until a jury decides their fate before you condemn them.
These two have serious psychological issues!
As I read this story, my 7 month old Siamese was sitting quietly on my monitor. I read and I looked at him wondering how anyone could kill such a sweet, little animal and in a fashion that was described. You see pictures all the time of firefighters administering O2 to pets and even doing CPR on some. It makes you proud.
But this atrocious, barbaric act is sickening and at the same time puzzling.
firemangeorge; you're reading too much into it. You're trying to give their actions the benefit of doubt. Take it for what it is; a heinous crime against a species that could not defend itself from blow after sickening blow of a hammer. These two first need a good attorney and then some serious counselling.
Chalk up yet another black eye for the fire service.
I am an animal lover. Though I don't believe that they should have the right to vote, I believe that they have a right to life.
IMACOJ-have your pets spayed and neutered.

Sorry Bro, more like a solid *** kicking and I want to

be the first in line. I just think this incident is
horrible. I am not some PETA person, but to do this
with a hammer?!?! Makes me sick...
This is not the first time
When I was only a second year firefighter, I and my partner watched in horror as our Captain and Senior Engineer proceeded to torcher our little baby kitten we had only a couple of weeks earlier adopted around the firhouse.
While holding down the kitten the Captain would whip the kitten with a large branch while the Engineer held down the front and back legs. Well, the kitten in self defense got a paw lose and swiped at one of them and that infurated them, they proceeded to jump on the litten with thier duty boots until it was lifeless.
They put the kitten in a trash bag and tossed it into a nearby stream, to thier horror, the bag landed on a rock in the stream and did not get washed away. The Captain then waited out to the bag where he picked it up and repeatedly pounced to bag with the kitty in it on the rock until the carcass was totally pulverised.
Well, we could not take letting them get away with that so we turned them in and they lost their jobs over it. Or at least I know the Captain had to take a retirement offer and I am unsure what became of the Engineer.
Pretty sad when people hurt little creatures I think.
Steppin out in that Limb...
Well I reckon I am going to have to step out on a limb and disagree with most all of you. All of the facts were not mentioned about this article, everything was not clear. Either way these are still firefighters, and still part of the brotherhood. They are INNOCENT until proven GUILTY, and not Guilty until Innocent. We should no be picking apart their every move until we know what their every move was. Ladies and Gentlemen, that was my two cents worth...and there will be no charge for that!
UTFFEMT- that situation definitely sounds like they needed to lose their job!!
