Can you imagine the national outcry of man's cruelty if we caught on camera on network news, a person throwing a tiny puppy off a bridge. The resultant statement would be that he felt he simply couldn't care for the puppy. "You beast!" the public would cry. Thousands across the country will say, "I would have taken the puppy. You didn't have to kill it!" "He should be thrown off the bridge himself!" some would scream. Our national priorities are sometimes confounding.
