    Sad story although I have a 10 lb Chihuahau that would love to meet him in a dark alley. Photograph of the individual charged seems to tell the overstory story pretty well

    What a chump! Someone needs to do the same thing to him that he did to that dog. Like it was the dogs fault that he couldn't step up and be a man and end the argument. No, he had to prove his point by killing a 3 pound dog. Some people aren't worth the air they suck into their worthless lungs.
