A UP student killed a cat and blogged it. He wrote on his blog how he felt when he slammed the cat like a pro wrestler. Though he didn’t perosnally see the cat die, he was still the one responsible for the cat’s death. So what’s eating our time on a topic like this if there are even missing people and unjustified deaths?
Simply, I sympathize with JC. I know he killed a cat and I think he deserves a reprimand from the responsible people. Killing a cat may serve as a start for his more barbaric doings, and it is dangerous breeding a person like him – tolerating his violence. But upon reading the post on multiply and some other blogs, I just can’t take that there are people who actually bash humans for animals.
I’m not saying that he does not deserve to be corrected, but his reputation and dignity are affected. In effect, his social and psychological being are also affected. The people may not be killing JC, but the excruciating words are almost enough to kill him.
JC slammed the cat, he didn’t see it die. The people bashed him, they do not have an idea how JC may react with those negative remarks.
First, if the purpose is to correct him, why would a person post his picture along with a blog on the internet? So the public may know and be more aware of the issue? I cannot accept this reasoning. The blog post asked the people to scrutinize him and tell him that he did something wrong. Bandwagon! This is too much just for a public information.
Second, why would you call him a psycho? I was his dormmate in Kalai, and as far as I am knowledgeable, he is not psycho in Philippine norm. Because he is enjoying cats’ deaths? That is his problem/character. I do not like cats, but I pay them respect because I believe in ecology. His satisfaction on killing cats is not enough to call him a psycho. So if you watch gore movies and you actually enjoy watching it, do I also have the right to call you a psycho?
Third, how can you actually want an 18-year-old Physics student to get kicked out of the school? He is young. He has many dreams. He has not yet spent the lime time of his life. He is studying in UP. This is sacrificing whatever is ahead of him for killing a cat. This is too much. As a support, he is taking Applied Physics. The country highly needs Physics-people and you’re rubbing him off the National Institute of Physics.
Lastly, how can you actually destroy a person? The “people” should have sued him first and let him learn his lesson. Are we equating the importance of cats to JC, a human? “No.” But it’s as if these people do.
Bottomline, kung may karapatan ang mga pusa, may karapatan din si JC bilang isang tao.
I do not like what JC did, but I value him as a member of the society. They used JC as an example of violence to animals, I am using the “people who underestimated the effect of their statements” as an example of VIOLENCE TO HUMANS.
