I reported last month about the case of a 4-month-old puppy that was doused in lighter fluid and set afire in South Dallas apartment complex. The animal suffered severe burns over 70% of his body and died 4 days after the incident. Police named him “Justice” and sought information about the perpetrator. A woman who lived in the complex and witnessed the attack finally came forward to identify 18-year-old Darius Ewing as the perpetrator. Ewing turned in himself shortly afterwards. A judge set Ewing’s bond at $100,000, but at a hearing this morning in Dallas County, the amount was reduced to $50,000. Ewing’s mother testified that her son is not a flight risk and complained that the bond was too high because he didn’t kill a person. Despite his age, Ewing already has an extensive juvenile criminal record going back 4 years. He’s been charged previously with assault and has gang ties.
His mother’s comment pisses me off. Stupid bitch! I don’t care that her precious baby didn’t kill a person. Just because she doesn’t seem to view him far removed from Pampers doesn’t mean he’s not a danger to society as a whole. I’ve noticed a lot of these punks have mothers who appear clueless. If Ewing set a dog on fire, who’s to say he wouldn’t do the same to a human? A child? An elderly person? Gang members have no soul and therefore, deserve no sympathy or compassion – no matter how badly their mothers cry. I’ll keep everyone updated, as this case strikes a personal chord with this animal lover.
