50 years for decapitating a pig

CHESAPEAKE, Va. (CBS Washington) – A Portsmouth woman faces up to 50 years in prison after pleading guilty to beheading her boyfriend’s piglet.

According to court documents, Ashley Fowler, 22, was breaking up with the piglet’s owner Zach Sawyer and wanted to play a prank first.

Sawyer’s mother told the Virginian-Pilot last year that the piglet’s head freaked her out when she let her puppy outside early one morning last February and saw it staring back at her.

“For somebody to come and do something like this was unbelievably sick,” Janie Sawyer told the paper.
Okay, it is sick, but 50 years in prison? Your local grocery store is stocked with meat from slaughtered pigs.

Conrad Murray killed Michael Jackson, and he faces a maximum sentence of only 4 years. Our society is unbelievably sick when it values a piglet more than the King of Pop.
