Don't get me wrong, I'm a dog lover. I've been my entire life, and I can't understand how anyone could bring themselves to treat such innocent animals that way...

But the fact is, the point of the penal system is to rehabilitate, not to brand and to give people who deserve it a second chance. The man served his time and apparently now sees the error of his ways.

But people are innocent until proven guilty. And if he is guilty, he should serve the time, but if he's not then its unfair to label him as something when none of us really know the details. People have to realize that people make mistakes. Not everyone can be as perfect you'd like them to be. people can and do change.
Totally agree with all of this!
