Judge called the case an isolated case and he got off free. Police said he walked out of the court smirking at her. She also said that she as heard that this was not the first time he commited acts of cruely on cats.

Our laws say exactly what we think/feel about animals.
I agree. What makes an animal's life less valuable than a human life? I'm sorry, but it's a life, and nobody had the right to take a life.
There are only two rules at my house: House rule #1. Cats rule. House rule #2. See rule #1.
