What Does an Abuser Look Like?

August 1, 2010

Here are just a few abusers, their victims and their stories. I included their addresses in case someone might want to harass them. They have no heart or soul. They deserve justice, but the law doesn’t allow for the justice they deserve. Maybe this is the beginning of a registry of the hundreds of thousands of abusers that need to be removed from society before they abuse another animal or human. Maybe you can help by sending ones you know of in the comments section below.


These two men were arrested  after they took turns shooting a German shepherd while he howled in his cage.

An Ohio dog warden says a German shepherd named Sarge is one tough pup after surviving six gunshots to his head, neck and chest. The bullets remain lodged inside Sarge but he needs only painkillers and antibiotics. The dog was up and around, eating and drinking the day after the incident.

Lawrence Mick, the dog’s owner, was charged with a third degree felony for using the weapon, and if convicted, he could be sentenced to one to five years in prison and a $10,000 fine. The other charges he faces in connection with the incident, including cruelty to animals, are all misdemeanors. Mick has a drug conviction and is prohibited from using a firearm. Mick and Adam Collins are accused of taking turns shooting the captive dog with a 25-caliber pistol in Mick’s backyard.


A man who said he was sick and tired of taking care of a 9-week-old puppy was accused of trying to set the dog on fire. Tony Brian Knolle was arrested at his home and charged with animal cruelty, a felony. Bail was set at only $3,000.

The pit bull pup, named Red, was taken into protective custody and needs a good home.

”He wants you to cuddle him. He’s a baby,” said sheriff’s spokeswoman Debbie Tanna. ”He’s a sweet pea.”

Knolle’s wife, Miacarla, flagged down a deputy and told him that her husband had tried to set a puppy on fire. The couple had been fighting. The deputy followed Mrs. Knolle back to the house and took the puppy to the Sheriff’s Office. The dog had a singe mark and blisters on its torso and some cuts on a back leg. Red was taken to a veterinarian and then to county Animal Services, where he will stay until a home can be found, Tanna said.


The plight of a dog set on fire and left to die spurred an effort to make sure that people convicted of animal cruelty in North Carolina can spend time in jail.

Susie’s Law reclassifies the “malicious abuse, torture or killing” of an animal as a Class H felony. That increases the penalties for animal cruelty to a maximum 10-month jail sentence.

The law is named after Susie, now a 1-year-old pit bull-shepherd mix. As a puppy, Susie was beaten, set on fire and left to die. Susie survived, was rescued and has been adopted. She lost her ears, though, and still bears the scars.

Lashawn Whitehead, 21, of Greensboro, was convicted of felony cruelty to animals and sentenced to probation. Advocates of Susie’s Law said they were outraged that state law allowed Whitehead to be sentenced only to probation. “This is a serious offense,” said Mondy Lamb, spokeswoman for the SPCA of Wake County. “Beating animals, kicking animals, starving animals to the point of death or beyond should be punished by more than just a slap on the wrist.”

Whitehead did receive a two-year prison sentence after being convicted of indecent liberties with a minor and burning personal property, according to state Department of Corrections records. Gov. Bev Perdue has signed Susie’s Law and it will take effect Dec. 1, 2010.


This guy is the star of the ubiquitous video that is available elsewhere on this blog. The animal-rights organization Mercy For Animals released the video that was shot at Conklin Farms showing employees, primarily Gregg, beating cows with metal rods, stabbing them with pitchforks, punching calves in the face and head,  and slamming calves to the ground.  The video also shows workers holding down newborn calves and stomping on their heads. It shows one worker wiring a cow’s nose to a metal bar near the ground and repeatedly beating it with another bar while it bleeds. These animals are in a small pen with nowhere to run to escape the torture. Gregg and his co-workers then bragged and laughed about what they had done.

Gregg was charged with 12 counts of cruelty to animals. Each count he faces has a maximum penalty of 90 days in jail and a $750 fine.  He was also charged with one count of improper handling of a firearm in a motor vehicle, a fourth-degree felony, when a loaded handgun was discovered in Gregg’s vehicle at the dairy after he was fired and subsequently arrested for the animal abuse.  The maximum possible combined sentence for everything is only 18 months. 

Conklin Dairy Farms is located at 12939 US Highway 42 N Plain City, Ohio 43064-8748 (telephone number 614-873-8024)
