Arrest made in animal cruelty case

Six live kittens were sealed into a block wall at a local apartment complex.
Police have arrested Richard Lee Carter. He was a maintenance man at a local apartment complex.
Police say he sealed the five week old kittens inside a the wall using insulation which quickly hardens. One of them had to be put to sleep. Carter is now facing several charges of animal cruelty.
The cats were rescued after someone tipped off volunteers from an animal sanctuary. Although there is an open investigation with Las Vegas Animal Control, many say the punishment may not fit the crime.

Ok...I haven't even opened the video link and already it upsets me.
People who are cruel (to animals, children and the elderly) should be punished.
This guy will burn in hell.

Are you freaking kidding me!!!!
How do you think this could be done unintentionally???
You are out of your mind just as much as he is for thinking that.
Watch the video the insulation was practically sprayed right on them and they are meowing. You mean to tell me he couldn't SEE or HEAR 6 KITTENS!!! I am furious! I happen to be doing a speech/research paper on animal cruelty and I am amazed at how sick some individuals can be. Animals are supposed to be protected by us just like we protect our families, children and elderly. I agree with mad izatie. Justice will be served when the time is right.

Richard is my brother in-law and you have not heard his side of the story. He loves animals and would never hurt one.

I used to work with Rich as his Manager and I know first hand he would NEVER do anything like this intentially. He is a good guy, why dont you try to hear all sides of the story before assuming someone is guilty. Whatever happened to innocent until proven guilty?

You know after reading and researching more it seems looking at the video if the holes were at the bottom and he couldn't see that they were in the back this could've been unintentional. BUT the problem is how did someone else even know about it to turn anyone in?? I just hope whatever the case innocent or guilty the truth should surface. I am a HUGE animal lover and went off the first time because of the shock of what happens to poor innocent animals. Only 2 people know what really happened and that is the person involved and the man upstairs. May God Bless everyone involved. God rest that kittens soul.
