WARNING: Don't scroll down if you are sensitive. GRAPHIC CONTENT
I saw part of the torture video on Instagram last night, posted by a lawyer. I immediately blocked the lawyer (regardless of his intentions, I was so traumatized by the 2 seconds I saw; without even knowing what would happen next, that I have no intention of associating myself with the person who would post it).
Life In Kuwait blog has the full story (Link Here) without the graphic video, thank God. Pictures however, are pretty graphic. I cropped the torturer's photo, but he looks like a rabid dog (no insult to dogs) with the rabbit's blood covering his face.
My theory is this: If this man is finding joy in torturing an animal, he is also finding joy in doing it to his own children, children in his neighborhood, weaker people. His wife? He should be sent in immediately for psychiatric evaluation. Get him OUT of our community!!!

I am not posting this to encourage him or his followers. I am posting this because I would like to see him arrested for the safety of animals and humans in our area!
Mariam Al-Kharafi: I commend you for immediately stepping forward to take legal action. You are an outstanding member of this society!
The below was circulated on Facebook. He obviously has no fear of repercussion as he posts his full, un-edited Civil ID card (Kuwaiti national identity card). I can't read the name... It sounds like a subconscious plead for help; that he really does want to be caught. I hope that happens - and soon.
I will keep you posted as I hear more about this horrific story.
In my 18 years in Kuwait, this is the 2nd-most-awful story I've heard (and I had the distinct misfortune to see part of this one). One would think that I would be desensitized to a lot of the things I've seen in my life, but something like this just makes my blood boil to the point that I want to commit homicide against the perpetrator....
