A year in jail for Cheyenne Cherry the kitten-killer

You will undoubtedly remember that horrible story about the young teenage girl who threw a little kitten in a stove to burn to death just as a "joke" to someone whose room she and a friend were ransacking. Kids these days have all the best ideas when it comes to pranks, don't they?

Well, we finally have a little bit of good news: the heartless bitch is being thrown in jail for a year for her inhumane crime, while the accomplice, who is supposedly the one who actually locked the kitten in the stove, is facing serious charges without us knowing what her sentencing will be.

A heartless kitty killer hissed angrily at animal rights activists Wednesday, grinning widely as she took credit for stuffing the helpless pet into a 500-degree oven.

"It's dead, bitch!" snapped an unrepentant Cheyenne Cherry, sticking her tongue out after a plea bargain that will put her behind bars for a year in the May 6 killing of tiny Tiger Lily.

Cherry, 17, was confronted after her guilty plea in Bronx Supreme Court to charges of animal cruelty and attempted burglary in the May 6 killing at her former roommate's apartment.

Tiger Lily was left to die inside the blistering oven after Cherry and a 14-year-old friend trashed the apartment of Valerie Hernandez, destroying furniture before stealing DVDs and food.

After her arrest, Cherry told police the cat killing was "just a joke."

Yes, how hilarious. An innocent creature suffered an unbelievably cruel death, just because amoral teenagers decided to have their fun by ransacking someone's home. And then the bitch had the gall to taunt and flaunt her vile act at the face of those who had assembled there ... Truly incredible.

I don't customarily agree with journalists' labeling of crooks in their news pieces, but calling Cherry a "heartless kitty killer" is something I'd even applaud. It's certainly the best thing she'll be called, I bet, compared to a few choice words other may have in store for her.

The article mentions how Cherry is now prohibited from owning a pet for a pathetic little three years. There's a poll:

Kitten killer Cheyenne Cherry can't own a pet for three years. Is that long enough?

• No, she should be banned from ever owning a pet, period.

• Yes, by then perhaps she'll learn to have compassion for animals.

NOTE – There seems to be a glitch with the poll; the original question asks whether her being banned from owning a pet for three years is long enough, but the poll's results are from the question "Does Cheyenne Cherry deserve more than one year in prison for the brutal death of a kitten?" (which she does at any rate).

I do think she needs to be kept in jail for more than a single year, and she should be prohibited from coming anywhere near animals for a decade at the very least. I don't discount the possibility (however remote) that she may change her ways of thinking, but until then, she's a complete psychopath and a danger to any innocent creatures around her.

I fail to imagine what would happen – literally – if someone did something like that to my little Kaylee, and then was fucking stupid enough to taunt me about it.

    Actually, she's the one who sent me the news in the first place. She's just as disgusted by this as anyone else is – she may be gung-ho about animal overpopulation, but inhumane acts of cruelty such as this rile her up as much as you or me.

  • BuffaloWilder

     I'll believe it when I see it.

     The juxtaposition of that nice photo of her and the cute kitten is remarkably cruel. And, a little funny.

  • Joé McKen

    Cruel? In which way? Those are the pics from the article itself; more pics equals more multmedia, which is proven to attract more readers than mere text, which is why I include whichever pics I find in source articles.

    Mel may be a bit crazy at times, but one thing I can safely say is she isn't downright heartless. Just <span style="text-decoration: underline;">very</span> opinionated.

  • Joé McKen

    Oh, and thought you should know she's now calling you a "monkey". And thinks we're talking behind her back, so *shhht!*


  • BuffaloWilder

     Aren't we all monkeys, though?

     Tell her I think she should stop crossing her eyes. It's very unbecoming.

  • Joé McKen

    Actually, we're all primates, not monkeys. Big difference few people seem to grasp. I'd go all nerdy on your ass and start detailing differences but I'll spare you ... this time. ;)

    ^ Lame-ass smilies alert. Err.

    The only thing I see her crossing is her arms. (And our names from her "people to be nice to" list, possibly.)

  • Joé McKen

    No, course you didn't. *Walks away whistling*

  • BuffaloWilder

    "Actually, we're all primates, not monkeys. Big difference few people seem to grasp. I'd go all nerdy on your ass and start detailing differences but I'll spare you ... this time."

     I was simplifying for the sake of a cohesive joke, Roman. Jeesh.  ;)

  • Joé McKen

    Who you callin' Roman, eh? And there's a DIFFERENCE between a SIMPLIFICATION and CREATIONIST-LEVEL MISCONCEPTIONS!!!

  • BuffaloWilder

    >>Who you callin' Roman, eh?

     You, Roman.

    Porn star: Can I have a vodka red bull?

    Roman: Live long and prosper.

    Porn star: Hey… are you into sci-fi?

    Roman: Yeah. Are you into sci-fi?

    Porn star: Yeah, totally. I even did a sci-fi movie once. This alien did me with his tentacle arms. It was cool.

    Roman: It sounds cool. I haven’t seen that one. What’s your name?

    Porn star: Cramsy. Lisa, actually.

    Roman: I’m Roman. I’m a writer. I write movies and books. I have a blog. It’s pretty cool. So what kind of stuff are you in to?

    Porn star: All of it. What I really like is dragons.

    Romans: Dragons? sigh. Dragons are fantasy. If there’s magical talismans or a magic sword or wizards or fucking crazy not-real animals…. all these basic things that break laws of reality: that shit’s all fantasy. I’m into hard sci-fi. Fantasy is bullshit.

     Oh, I love Party Down. It truly is the best comedy series on TV, right now.

  • Joé McKen

    ... You do know whatever reference that was supposed to be to is utterly lost on me, right?

  • Joé McKen

    A, that was a joke. B, that's still the lamest pun I've heard. It's embarrassing.

  • BuffaloWilder

     Well, it would be pretty lame as a pun I imagine, not being a pun and all.

  • BuffaloWilder

     Watch more tv.

  • BuffaloWilder

     Oh, wait. Her. Okay.

  • Joé McKen

    I watch plenty, just apparently not whatever that is supposed to be. And as for comedy, little gets even close to Frasier in my book. Though not so much for the later seasons, post-7th.

  • Joé McKen

    Heh. I chose a commenting platform with nesting enabled for a reason. ;)

  • Joé McKen

    That's 'cause anything stupid I say probably is a joke. Hence it being stupid.

  • BuffaloWilder

     You need Party Down. I feel it will become your bible.

  • Joé McKen

    Well I'll check it out then.
