From the New York Daily News:
A Staten Island man was charged Friday with beating his wife’s small dog to death because it pooped in their apartment, authorities said.
A law enforcement source said Nashbert Smith “repeatedly swung the dog by its leash against a wall, then choked it to death” on Wednesday afternoon.
In case you have any doubt (I’m sure you don’t) about what type of person does such a thing, the Daily News gives a little background on Smith:
Smith, 28, is a registered sex offender with several assault and drug convictions, said a law enforcement source.
Of course he is. Can anyone think of a reason why Nashbert Smith ever should be released from prison?
