FBI to File Animal Cruelty Crimes as ‘Group A’ Felony to Prevent Future Violence: A/P LOS ANGELES: Young people who torture and kill animals are prone to violence against people (serial killers) later in life if it goes unchecked, studies have shown. A new federal category for animal cruelty crimes will help root out those pet abusers before their behavior worsens and give a boost to prosecutions, an animal welfare group says. For years, the FBI has filed animal abuse under the label “other” along with a variety of lesser crimes, making cruelty hard to find, hard to count and hard to track. The bureau announced this month that it would make animal cruelty a Group A felony with its own category — the same way crimes like homicide, arson and assault are listed.
FBI studies show that serial killers like Dahmer impaled the heads of dogs, frogs and cats on sticks; David Berkowitz, known as the “Son of Sam,” poisoned his mother’s parakeet; and Albert DeSalvo, aka the “Boston Strangler,” trapped cats and dogs in wooden crates and killed them by shooting arrows through the boxes. The FBI’s category will track crimes nationwide and is bound to give animal cruelty laws in all 50 states more clout. Many states are seeing more of those convicted of animal cruelty being sentenced to prison, in marked contrast to years past.

Acts of cruelty to animals are not mere indications of a minor personality flaw in the abuser (Stacy Sean Glover); they are symptomatic of a deep mental disturbance. Research in psychology and criminology shows that people who commit acts of cruelty to animals don’t stop there—many of them move on to their fellow humans (Stacy Sean Glover also strangled his wife until she passed out from the physical abuse). “Murderers-Serial Killers” … very often start out by killing and torturing animals,” says Robert K. Ressler, who developed profiles of serial killers for the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). Sociopath: Many serial killers kill to control others’ lives, small animals are the only lives they have the power to control. Cannibalistic serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer would bike around the woods as a child, collecting dead animals to dissect. Dahmer even killed and dismembered his own puppy.
