nitro’s law

A bill in the Ohio House, sponsored by state Reps. Ron Gerberry of Austintown, D-59th, and Robert F. Hagan of Youngstown, D-60th, would amend sections of the Ohio Revised Code to “specifically prohibit an owner, manager, or employee of a kennel of dogs from committing cruel treatment of a companion animal, to give a prosecutor who prosecutes an owner, manager, or employee of a kennel of dogs who commits cruel treatment of a companion animal discretion in prosecuting the owner, manager, or employee for the offense, and to remove certain language regarding the negligent treatment of companion animals.”

The proposed legislation, which allows such cruel treatment to be charged as a fifth-degree felony, is named for Nitro, one of the dogs that died in 2008 while at a the High Caliber K-9 in Coitsville.

Yes! The animal mistreatment is bad. But I think the mistreatment of our children is even worse. The lack of school funding that Gerberry and Hagan refuse to do anything about or even discuss. This needs fixed first. Where are their priorities?

Suggest removal:

Um, don't blame Gerberry or Hagen about school funding. Blame Kasich , the republican dominated state legislature AND obviously uninformed voters like yourself instead.

Suggest removal:
