Sometimes I just wanna..WHAM.
Let's keep on eye out for the well-being of innocent creatures. If you see animal abuse, report it.
What also may help is knowing that the majority of serial killers and other violent criminals began with torturing animals first.
I DO want to point out that the hammer is metaphorical. Violence only begets more violence. O-o I would never ACTUALLY nail someone with a hammer. If it were an animal, I would wrestle it away or call 911. However, if it was a child with his/her life on the line and it was happening RIGHT THEN... Ehhh....well then I may actually want to use a giant hammer. Or at least my fists. But only to defend and separate. Then I call the cops and get me and the child the heck out of there.
**EDIT: Once again, I want to make clear that the hammer is metaphorical, and not an actual hammer. The hammer represents justice, the police, and the court system. It's symbolism. To me, justice is a hammer. It should come swiftly and strongly. (I don't have to point out that the hammer SAYS justice, do I?)
I do not encourage the actual beating with a blunt or sharp object of any sort.
And even if the hammer was real, as I may have slightly imagined it in my head as I watched police dig a buried-alive dog out of the ground that was wrapped in barbed wire and covered with gunshot wounds, there is a big difference between thought and action.
If you've hit someone with a hammer, I suggest therapy. :V You should really get a hold on that anger problem. Next time just call the cops.
I want to note that if I watched an animal being beaten, the ONLY person getting hurt would be me. Because I would use my body as a human shield to separate the dog from the abuser. The only thing the abuser would get from me is a shove. He can sue me if he wants. I can live with that. C:
