SORT BY Relevancy
Tonight we are hosting a potentially volatile show, asking: Does the punishment fit the crime?
In human terms, a murder means life in prison, so why is it so very different in the case of animal cruelty? Is it possible to tighten up the laws regarding sentencing and punishment for people who commit these terrible acts against our furry (and feathery) friends?
Please join the show with your opinions. We want to hear from you, but we also want you to respect the opinions of others.

Since the suspension of professional football player Adrian Peterson stemming from charges that he abused his four year old son by whipping him with a tree switch, the debate has been ongoing as to the fairness of this decision. Proponents of corporal punishment say it is a cultural misunderstanding; being "disciplined" with a "switch" is a common southern practice, and most black families, it is argued, use this method of punishment all the time. Others call it child abuse. Asadah Kirkland, author of Beating Black kids, examines whether corporal punishment of any kind is emotionally healthy for children or does it only create violent adults?
Tune-in to calendar announcements for current awareness-activism entitled, "Take it Out, John Kline!" (http://youtu.be/BoKK5HcygE8) for having the success of "Ending Corporal Punishment in Schools Act," HR 5005, federal "legislative protection" for American sons and daughters while they are on USA school property in the hands of US government-funded employees.
This event will last from December 1-December 19, 2014, one day for each of the 19 US states where taking a wooden board* to strike American school age sons and daughter remains "legal."

The pending child abuse case against Minnesota Viking Adrian Peterson has brought spanking, a common form of child discipline used by parents, back into public scrutiny.
"By the the time they reach adolescence, 85 percent of the nation's children will have been, at one point or another, spanked," Dr. Alan Kazdin, a psychologist at Yale University told ABC News.
