Dog Murder Double Standards

As should be expected, not only the blogosphere is abuzz over the sadistic murder of a whimpering puppy, allegedly by Marine David Motari, but so is the corporate media. As for the latter, we get lame excuses, for instance from shrinks employed by ABC News.David Spiegel, professor and associate chairman of psychiatry and behavioral sciences at the Stanford University School of Medicine, and thus supposedly an expert on these sort of things, tells us Motari was confronting "the fear of being wounded or killed and one of the ways to confront that may be by showing you're the one that renders other creatures helpless," in other words, by sadistically murdering puppies and, we can only imagine, possibly other innocents unable to offer defense.
