A Grayslake-area man accused of shooting a stray dog outside his house in January has been sentenced to 20 months in prison.
Now, I'm all for strict sentencing for gun violence and I love animals as much as the next guy, but this is ridiculous. Unless this guy has a long history of misusing his firearms, I say the jail time is excessive. He qualifies for my one-strike-your-out rule, but that should be it.
What's your opinion? Isn't the judge being a bit melodramatic in saying the crime "is not easily forgiven by society?"
