At least three suspects are in custody after footage of the brutal murder of a cat emerged online. The nerve-wrecking video shows several men attaching a powerful firecracker to the cat and blowing it up. While the feline died, the assailants may escape punishment. The video which was uploaded to YouTube earlier this week showed at least two men catching a cat, duct-taping its paws together and then attaching a firecracker to it. The animal did not survive.

The facts are hard to fathom: a mother alone with her 3-year-old son in a playground for two days straight, pushing him in a swing until he died of dehydration and low body temperature; pushing him even after he died until finally sheriff’s deputies came to investigate. To Vontasha Simms, whose daughter Romechia Simms is now charged with manslaughter, the facts are a clear indication that Romechia Simms was suffering from mental illness so severe that a criminal prosecution is misplaced. Vontasha Simms said she was “totally flabbergasted” by prosecutors’ announcement Monday that they were charging her 24-year-old daughter with child abuse, manslaughter and child neglect.

Here’s s sickening description from the annals of man’s dark history:
Diodorus also relates that relatives were forbidden to weep and that when Agathocles defeated Carthage, the Carthaginian nobles believed they had displeased the gods by substituting low-born children for their own children. They attempted to make amends by sacrificing 200 children of the best families at once, and in their enthusiasm actually sacrificed 300 children.
In the book The History of Sicily from the Earliest Times the author recounts the tale slightly differently. He states that the Carthaginian nobles had actually acquired and raised children not of their own for the express purpose of sacrificing them to the god. The author states that during the siege, the 200 high-born children were sacrificed in addition to another 300 children who were initially saved from the fire by the sacrifice of these acquired substitutes.
Plutarch wrote in De Superstitione 171:
… but with full knowledge and understanding they themselves offered up their own children, and those who had no children would buy little ones from poor people and cut their throats as if they were so many lambs or young birds; meanwhile the mother stood by without a tear or moan; but should she utter a single moan or let fall a single tear, she had to forfeit the money, and her child was sacrificed nevertheless; and the whole area before the statue was filled with a loud noise of flutes and drums took the cries of wailing should not reach the ears of the people.
Jewish rabbinic commentary
Tophet is Moloch, which was made of brass; and they heated him from his lower parts; and his hands being stretched out, and made hot, they put the child between his hands, and it was burnt; when it vehemently cried out; but the priests beat a drum, that the father might not hear the voice of his son, and his heart might not be moved.
A rabbinical tradition attributed to the Yalkout of Rabbi Simeon, says that the idol was hollow and was divided into seven compartments, in one of which they put flour, in the second turtle-doves, in the third a ewe, in the fourth a ram, in the fifth a calf, in the sixth an ox, and in the seventh a child, which were all burned together by heating the statue inside.

Police say the two met at the El Sol Brillante Apartments at 6401 Sierra Blanca on Monday, June 29. While they were talking, the victim says Davis made a phone call, saying to the person on the other end that she was at the bottom of the stairwell.
Just then, the victim says two light-skinned black men who were armed with pistols approached and demanded money.
The victim says the two men searched him, but found no money and began to argue with Davis.
