    Most killers, and serial killers start out by killing animals.

  2. What is wrong w/ these parents!!…… these kids are not right in the head!!

    1. I agree with you. What’s wrong with the boy begin with the parents Was he being abused? Was it out of frustration? Only head doctor can determine that.

  3. Clearly this is a sick individual. If he is not “handled” now, he’ll become a husband & father from hell, for sure. Most, criminals have this skeleton in their closets. Just like child pornography is a crime & to post online is a crime, so too should anything like this evil. Needs to be tougher laws & penalties for posting these types of videos online.

  4. That kid must be sick in doing stuff like that. All serial killers start with torturing and killing animals. Look at Ted Bundy and other killers.
