1. She covered my dog in gasoline and set him on fire.

“She came over to my house when I was at work and covered my dog in gasoline and set him on fire. I found him when I got home from work several hours later, he was still alive. He died on the way to the animal hospital. She admitted to everything and was convicted of animal abuse. She got few months in counseling, but otherwise got off without punishment. R.I.P Lando.

To a few of you wondering how my ex got off with such a light sentence. Her father is a big time player in local business and politics. In addition to spending tens of thousands of dollars for her legal defense, he called in every favor he possibly could. She was originally facing felony arson and animal abuse, but a plea deal dropped the arson charge and amended the felony animal abuse to a misdemeanor (if I’m remembering it correctly).”


2. She threatened to cut off my dog’s dick.

“She threatened to cut off my dog’s dick. So yeah.”
