Is a society failing when it gives less jail time for killing a person than for killing an animal?


Throughout history societies have developed all sorts of warped and twisted moral and legal systems based on the ability of some to convince others. Killing an animal for a thrill or for the wrong reasons should be punishable by jail time, but animal rights activists have gone too far with a shrill, aggressive approach to favoring animals over people. Society went over the edge when disturbed people started calling their forcibly enslaved animals "people" and giving them more rights than humans.

    Focus on the intent/psychology of crimes definitely sounds like it would be a much better approach to punishment, but unfortunately I don't think we can do that. It's a lot harder to prove an intention than it is to prove a death.

    What defines one life as being more valuable than another? A lot of bad things in history have happened on that belief.
