Several studies show that most serial killers start their lives as sociopaths by torturing or killing pets. For years, the FBI has filed animal cruelty crimes with a variety of others under the heading of other, making them hard to find, hard to count and hard to track. That s changing. The FBI announced this month it would make animal cruelty a Group A felony with its own category, the same way crimes like homicide, arson and assault are listed in the agency s Uniform Crime Report Program.

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.

Sarasota: Miniature Dachshund Puppy Athena Tortured to Death by Stacy Sean Glover he Choked Out Wife in Prior Incident, This is Serial Killer 101. SARASOTA FL: The story of a sweet, tiny pup named Athena has gone worldwide. The precious miniature dachshund died a horrible death, spending her final moments, sadly, in fear and pain. Athena’s heartbreaking murder was captured on surveillance video. A man dog sitting Athena is seen on camera, deputies say, punching the 12-pound puppy repeatedly. Stacy Sean Glover was supposed to be caring for the pup, but is instead accused of a savage crime – beating Athena to death.

At the beginning of the video, Glover can also be seen, detectives tell us, throwing the puppy out the door. Athena then desperately runs for cover, trying to hide anywhere she can. But, she is found and grabbed quickly, then beaten over and over again. The man in the video then picks up Athena by the neck as the helpless pup’s lifeless body dangles from the killer’s fierce grip.
News Channel 8 was at the Sarasota County courthouse Friday morning as supporters of Athena showed up for a court hearing. Glover’s attorney entered a not-guilty plea on behalf of her client, who was not present. Those supporting the puppy and her owner, Jessie Anderson, wore pink shirts in honor of Athena. People were heartbroken, knowing how the tiny dog suffered. Info from Public Records of Sarasota County Sheriff Dept: Stacy Glover, DOB 07/05/90, last known address 1721 Bayshore Road, Nokomis Fl, was arrested August 27th, 2014 on four felony counts of Aggravated Cruelty to an Animal and one felony count of Tampering with Evidence, see http://www.sarasotasheriff.org/news/news-releases/item/nokomis-man-arrested-for-animal-cruelty.html
One supporter, Mary Merkel, cried after the court proceeding. “It’s horrible, the behavior of that man is despicable and shouldn’t be tolerated in any form.” She added, “It’s important that everybody see this face (Stacy Sean Glover). And everyone understand horrific nature.” Glover has a criminal past and was arrested earlier this year. Cops say he strangled his wife until she passed out from the physical abuse. The arrest report said on Tuesday, Jan. 21st, 2014, at about 8:30 p.m., Stacy Glover and his victim, Alivia Glover got into a verbal argument at a residence located at 8254 Longbay Blvd., in South Manatee County. The argument turned physical when Stacy threw Alivia onto a bed. As Alivia reached to defend herself, Stacy pushed her against the bed and choked her from behind until she could not breathe. Alivia called law enforcement and Stacy left the residence. He then returned to the scene and was arrested. He was charged with Domestic Battery by Strangulation. He was released from the Manatee County Jail on his own recognizance, supervised.

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.
