ACT sentencing gone to the dogs

By weeziepops 3 December 2009 24

I was disappointed to see yet another piss-weak “sentence” in relation to a conviction for animal cruelty. 

The CT reports (here: man-deserved-harsher-penalty-rspca) that Saron Youn has got off with community service and a good behaviour bond for neglecting his two dogs to a point where they were attempting to eat dirt in order to survive.  

Mr Youn should be banned from owning another pet and given a custodial sentence.  The idea that he should spend those hours of community service in an animal shelter is an insult to the staff and volunteers who work there.

I am sorry for Mr Youn’s circumstances, but also feel he has failed the creatures in his care in the worst possible way.

No – there is no excuse for this. None. He could have taken the dogs to the pound, where at least they would have had a daily walk and a decent feed. He could have asked a decent human being to care for his dogs. It would have been kinder to put the dogs down at the vet, rather than let them suffer like this. There is no excuse for this – NONE. There are no other sides to this story.

Looking after animals that you’re responsible for isn’t negotiable and using some piss-poor excuse like ‘relationship problems’ is simply pathetic. The courts will do what the courts will do, but the world now knows what a complete and utter douche-bag Saron Youn really is.

You are obviously a dear friend of his – why didn’t you check on the dogs? Idiot.

Maybe asking a friend who isn’t an incompetent imbecile to feed the dogs would’ve been a better option then. Taking the dogs to professionals to look after would’ve been a better option.

+1.

SmatrerThanYou and qwerty00, obviously everybody who commented did not know the other side of the story and gave their opinions on the situation and story that weeziepops found in the CT. How were they meant to know? Plus, “Mr. Youn” should of checked that the person incharge of the dogs was feeding them.

All of you are idiots, the guy arranged with a friend to look after the dogs while the owner was in sydney because of relationship problems. Do the world a favour and **** yourself.

Honest to God, you only look at one side of the story and not the other, try thinking for once instead of being blinded by one side of the story.

I can’t help but wonder if his relationship problems weren’t caused by being a self-centred, selfish, irresponsible a-hole????

I bet he also couldn’t care for these poor creatures because he had a headache, a stubbed toe, a nasty cough, a runny nose, a bad case of gastro and a sore leg – but, he has got a note from his mummy to explain it all?

They were HIS dogs. He was responsible for making sure they were cared for. He should have put them in the care of someone trustworthy AND checked in from time to time. These dogs suffered for a long time. You are obviously a dear friend of his – why didn’t you check on the dogs? Idiot.

I went through relationship problems once. I managed to avoid harming any animals or people during that time and, yes, even took responsibility for my life and circumstances. I saw one of those dogs when he was seized – the media couldn’t lie about that. I judge this person for starving animals which he was responsible for. I wish the ACT court system had judged more harshly.

And yet the guy didn’t know that his friend wasn’t feeding the dogs, so it’s impossible for him to have done anything at the time

You people focus too much on what the media tells you. You people know nothing of the real story behind this. Did you people never think that fact that this man may of had problems and he just couldn’t take care of his dogs properly? The world isn’t always going to happy and unfortunately things happen and we can’t control that fact. All you people read is “This man neglected his dogs” That’s it, you don’t see the reason why. You people make think, “That’s no excuse for what he did.” If you had to choose between your family or your pets, ultimately, you know you would have to choose your family. You people don’t take into account circumstances that might occur, like financial issues or other personal circumstances.

Learn to be more open minded about situations and circumstances. Don’t judge someone because of something that’s been portayed by the media, the media doesn’t get their facts straight all the time. You people are blinded by your own biased jugdement and you all should be ashamed of yourselves. All these comments make me sick, there is no regard for what it takes to be a human being, to say all these things and not taking into account any situations outside the box.

been reading riot act for a while now have kept quiet on most items however i am 24 and my family jus lost a dog that has been with me since i was 7 that was sad and made me realize that animals truly are just as important a companion as a human can b theyre lives shouldent be valued under anyones and how people can let this happen is beyond me.. i hope to god this jerk never has kids..

prhhcd 3:50 pm 04 Dec 09

deezagood – you’re probably right. Animals are generally too nice …

Tooks 2:43 pm 04 Dec 09

It’s difficult enough getting a custodial sentence for harming another human, let alone an animal.

deezagood 10:57 am 04 Dec 09

unfortunately the dogs would probably be too nice to serve justice prhhcd. Most animals are so trusting and loyal – and this is how they are repayed by their f’ing owner. Bastard. These dogs were starved for WAY longer than 6 days.

Buzz2600 10:55 am 04 Dec 09

*IF* the guy turns up and actually performs his community service sentence, the staff and other volunteers at the animal shelter will probably embrace the chance to imbrue him with an overhelmingly different perspective on the care and treatment of animals. I’m guessing his days will start with shoveling piles of dog and cat $h*t from morning to night … very appropriate.

Hold on folks, there might be a glimer of light here.

At least those keen on mob justice now know exactly were to find him.

While I would in no way support such actions, there are those that do and I hope this prick is sweating because of it.

good point.
And most people working in animal shelters would probably be the type to not like psychopaths like this. If I was working in that animal shelter, I’d be watching him like a hawk. I doubt he’d do a very good job.
let’s hope they read the Riotact, or google Saron Youn

prhhcd 9:36 am 04 Dec 09

Very angry! This just follows on from the ferret sentencing last year – the guys are also out, walking the streets. I’m all for mob justice.
The sentence for neglect here is just ludicrous. Can’t we throw him to the dogs?

toriness 9:33 am 04 Dec 09

bloody disgusting.

Friska 9:31 am 04 Dec 09

Disgusting!!
