Four Chandler Boys Arrested After Kitten Is Tortured and Killed

Chandler trailer-park playground where four young boys tortured and killed a kitten.
Four Chandler boys are in juvenile jail this morning, accused of torturing and killing a kitten.

The boys, ages 8 to 12, were caught by their trailer park's surveillance video kicking the two-month-old kitten repeatedly before tossing its "limp and lifeless" body into a pool, Chandler police say.


A fifth boy, 7, who participated in the act "is too young to face charges," and a six observed what was going on but didn't take part in it, says Chandler Sergeant Joe Favazzo.

We didn't see the video and didn't request it, though it's available at Chandler PD headquarters on CD. Don't worry, it'll probably turn up soon on some perverted animal-snuffing website, in case your life just won't be complete without seeing it.

On October 14, Favazzo says, the surveillance camera at the Sunshine Valley mobile home park, 1650 South Arizona Avenue, caught the group of boys playing with a small dog and a kitten at park's small playground. Cops learned later that one of the boys had found the kitten under his trailer and sold it to another boy for $3. The boys learned that it was a female -- cops believe it was about two months old.

The playing went along innocently enough until the boys get the idea to push the dog on the slide into the kitten, Favazzo says the video shows. This sparks the idea to push a soccer ball into the kitten, then slide down themselves into the kitten, kicking it and watching it fly off the end. The kitten tries to escape several times, but can't. Finally, it's thrown onto the ground by a boy. The group checks out the body, and one of the boys throws it over a fence and into the pool.

After a two-week investigation, police arrested the four older boys on Sunday morning. They were booked into a Mesa juvenile lockup but likely were released to their parents the next day, Favazzo says.

Serial killers always start with animals. Then they move on to murdering people.

This is terrifying behavior. Institutionalize those boys in the appropriate mental health facility for at least a year before asking for a release recommendation from a psychiatrist. They are on the fast track to becoming full grown monsters.

The parents are just as bad as the kids if you watched the interview.....personally my son and I feel it's time for a road trip.....maybe see how tough these little mother fuckers really are! I can't even imagine what that little kitten went thru! It tried to get away SEVERAL times and these MONSTERS chased it down, caught it again and again, and just kept terrorizing it. Makes me SICK to my stomach! Treat them as the murderers and terrorists that they are and put em away for their miserable little lives!

Really sick children. Seriously sick bastards. I went to elementary school with kids who did things like this, and guess what---they are all in jail now.

The little dog needs to be seized from this family. I am calling the humane society tomorrow to do just that. They were just as abusive to the dog. Sick, sick children. I am sure they will be very popular when they go back to school tomorrow. Wonder why adults weren't supervising these 7-12 year old kids???? BTW, the dad...saw you on the news tonight commenting on this. Do you really think this is just "they need to learn what's right and wrong?" Your kid is a future murderer. Must be the way you raised him. Normal kids don't act like that

Really sick children. I am sure they will be beaten by the tough kid at school who happens to like cats

they say animal torture or cruelty is usually followed by arson and precluded by bed wetting and that falls into the sociopath, or serial killer profile makeup. (but i am sure these kids parents think their little ones are angels or being set up, right?)

Those little motherfuckers should be more than just flogged. Do you hear me, parents of those little motherfuckers?

These little **** need to receive some serious punishment and maybe they'll get an idea what that little kitten went through and never do something like that again. It can't be a good sign when they are aleady doing something like this and they are only 7-12 yrs old.

@marinemom Hey Marinemom stop by Atlanta, GA and pick me up on the way I'll be glad to help.  There are enough shit bags in this world without the need for more. I'll abort them at their current age.

@marinemom I agree with you the parents are sick creatures, raising sociopaths, and we in the educations system deal with these deranged creatures all the time - at tax payers expense.  It is a shame tax payer money is used to support these individuals.  They should  ship them off. Or as someone is a hunter said, if they kill they should be forced too eat it - let the punishment fit their crime.  Some posted the address to the trailer park these psychos are from - and supposedly this is not the first kitten / animal they have done this too, but since they were caught NOW their parents are getting involved, saying their children are not horrendous creatures. Before the parents looked away.  Apparently the place is gang ridden, infested with illegals who are not for the betterment of themselves just freeloaders on tax payers income.  It is a shame they exist and these are precisely the ones that should be deported.  Not the ones that have earned and achieved a good education, are pillars of excellent citizenship, dignified and conduct themselves with the utmost respect for all.  They don't go around brutalizing torturing anyone much less a defenseless creatures.  These children are the scum that should not be allowed to stay in the US.  They should deport the parents while the child remains in custody - to feel how it is to be the victim of a defenseless act.  They should feel real good, providing someone the joy they felt while torturing the small kitten.

@danzigsdaddy Who is they?  How is that tinfoil hat fitting you?  Been watching too many police propaganda shows I see.

@MEOW @danzigsdaddy 

MEOW, you must be extremely ignorant, a sociopath, or were a failure of  psychiatric treatment.  Children (humans) who show no compassion, inflict hurts, and derive pleasure from hurting a defenseless creature or human do grow-up to be killers.  As a school counselor I have seen children like this - they are so young, whether it was gang related (gangs use this as a way to show the younger kids how to be tough). Strength is not about brutality, and if these youths end-up in the legal system - what future do they have?  If they are minority, illegal, they are the scum that is ruining it for so many *superb* students who are part of the Dreamers and trying to emphasize the good they have accomplished though they started as young illegals.  It only takes a few idiots like this (parents and their deranged children) to ruin it for the immensely good people.  I believe like so many it is this type of illegals are the ones that should be thrown out the US, and while they thrown out, let the children do their time in prison - see how it feels to suffer.  They rejoiced in hurting a defenseless animal, then bring some joy to their parents, in letting them know someone is beating some sense into their defenseless child.   They are all about having joy - let them supply joy to someone who would enjoy beating them - in prison.  The parents who don't see wrong with this ALSO need to learn the path their child is living, but I hear many of those types of parents believe in raising a *tough* child - I hope they enjoy the toughness their child will someday endure in prison.  Their act for brutality is a path to prison.

@MEOW @danzigsdaddyWhy does that comment earn a tinfoil hat?  "They" is the American Psychiatric Association, among others.  Animal cruelty is often a precursor to other more heinous acts.  The World Health Organizations recognizes certain behaviors occurring before the age of 15 as symptoms of one or more antisocial personality disorders.  

These include a pervasive pattern of disregard for, and violation of, the rights and safety of others, aggression to people AND ANIMALS, destruction of property, deceitfulness or theft, serious violations of rules or laws. Children who exhibit these symptoms often move on to fulfill the requirements of the Hare Psychopathy Checklist as adults.

These children from Chandler need serious therapy, not incarceration.

@MEOW  Are you one of these kids' parents? Why are you defending these boys killing an innocent animal? How is arresting these boys somehow part of a police conspiracy? The boys who did this need help. As someone mentioned above, they need therapy. This is a sick and sad act of cruelty.

MEOW, you are an asshole. maybe we that disagree with you should meet you somewhere have you sign a waiver that you won't cry and press charges and then just start kicking the shit out of you, slam you down a few times then throw you on the curb, then I want to hear you say wawawa, asshole

@jbunny 1 child maybe, all 4? I don't think so.  This is more of a case of 1 kid peer pressuring 3 other kids into killing a cat.  You crime and punishment bastards are the sick ones.  Now that all 4 are being put into the system, you are right, all 4 have an opportunity at a fucked up life.  Well played mob mentality, well played.

@JaJaJaJaJaaaaa So are you saying that kids who kill innocent animals have zero chance of growing up to be violent? Just wondering where you're coming from--it's kind of common knowledge that serial killers, rapists, and murderers start out with animals when they're young. Even without research to back it up (and there are plenty of data out there to support this, from neuroscientists who specialize in child development), it's not much of a stretch. It's a pretty logical stepping stone, so I'm not sure why you're opposed to the idea that killing animals when you're as young as 7, is maybe, just maybe, an indicator of future violence.

A night with my women and she would be throwing rocks at you telling you to get your sorry ass off, so I will save her time. Thanks though. I am sure sister and mom enjoy being your bitches

@JaJaJaJaJaaaaa Moron. Almost every serial killer you ever read of started with torturing animals.

Get your carer to do a few searches for you, while your counting your thumbs, hoping for that elusive even number.

@JaJaJaJaJaaaaa It's not necessarily the loss of the cat, it's the fact that these young boys so violently killed it for no apparent reason. There's no reason to condone that kind of violent behavior in anyone, much less a young child. It shows a lack of empathy and lack of respect for life at a very early age, which overall is not good for our society. Can you explain why you think it's ok for kids to behave this way?

First off do me a favor and fuck off and secondly you can probably relate to over population as degenerate's like you tend to do the same thing. I noticed your language is limited.... GED? I find it hard to believe you don't live in a trailer park or under a rock.....because that is what your head is full of ROCKS!

Nope, you pathetic slaves crying over a cat, an overpopulated mutant of an animal that is not missed!  Eat sh*t and die!
