Petition Goes Viral for Sadistic Abusers’ Light Sentence

A shopper found the SD card containing this video on the floor of a grocery store in February of 2016. They recognized the brothers and notified police.

3.30.16 - Rotten Animal Abusers Petition Reaches 100,000 Signatures1



UK residents were completely outraged when a pair of evil brothers were given a slap on the wrist for the egregious abuse of their bulldog, Baby.  Andrew Frankish repeatedly hurled her down a flight of stairs while his brother Daniel filmed him.  Now a petition against their measly punishment has garnered well over 100,000 signatures, and may even reach Parliament.

The video is heart-wrenching to watch.  It is two and a half minutes of perverse pleasure taken in abusing a helpless dog.  Andrew, 22, repeatedly throws Baby down a long flight of stairs and sends her smashing into a gate.  He also swings her around, pile-drives her, and stomps on her head.

His 18- or 19-year-old brother Daniel can be heard saying, “See if we can make it scream any more.  We should throw it down the stairs by its ears.”

Poor Baby barely made a sound, and didn’t even attempt to fight back against her “family” members.  Because of this torture, she became paralyzed from the waist down.  Three months later she was put to sleep.

The abuse took place in October of 2013, but shopper found the SD card containing this video on the floor of a grocery store in February of 2016

Britain is notorious for their paltry sentences, despite their national affection for dogs.  The Frankishes were given only 21 weeks in prison, suspended for two years, a tagged curfew for six months, a small fine, and a life ban on pets.

This punishment is not nearly severe enough to be of any consequence to these monsters, and people are understandably incensed.  A petition addressed to Prime Minister David Cameron was started asking to reconsider the charges against the brothers.  So far, over 130,000 people have signed.

Parliament will respond to petitions drawing over 10,000 signatures of British citizens, and will consider bringing up for debate any that reach over 100,000.  However, these are petitions created on the specific government page (found here).  It is unknown whether or not they will consider a petition from an ordinary site, but hopefully they will recognize the importance of addressing this issue.

In addition to creating the petition, Alex Richardson-Lee also started a fundraiser.  The proceeds will go to the ASPCA to help other abused dogs so at least some good will come of Baby’s suffering.  A Facebook page has also been created to keep people aware of news on this matter.

Apparently police were called in by residents of the Southampton Street, Redcar area who became concerned that the young men were in danger from vigilantes, but unfortunately, no harm has come to them thus far.

      1. This is horrific and these two need to be put away for a very long time. Just sick…that they would take pleasure in this kind of torture.

    1. Someone screwed up with this petition as you had to hunt for the petition to actually sign!! These two psychopaths absolutely need to be incarcerated for a very long time. If for no reason (anyone out there who doesn’t care about animal welfare) than that they pose a threat to other human beings.

    2. If I see those guys, I kill them on the spot! Authorities come and get me, arrest me, kill me if you must, but NOTHING excuses such incomprehensible behavior to ANY living creature let alone a family PET!!!

      I’d kill them and GLADLY take any punishment the law prescribed. And if G-d exists, and I was brought before him to answer for my double murder, I’d tell him proudly “Lord, I’d do it again without hesitation.”

    3. I hope everybody that encounters these two punches them or pushes them down stairs every day for the rest of their lives.

    1. IT states that the dog ended up paralyzed from the waist down and was put to sleep a few months later.

    2. From what I’ve read, they paralyzed her back 2 legs & had to be put down 3 months later. I hope they’ve not gotten any new pets since then.

      1. I don’t understand how she was euthanized three months later when it was three years earlier that the torture took place according to the sd card, was she living that way with them for that long?

  1. Everything they did to the dog should be done to them. Prison in this country is a joke, it’s a life of luxury rather than serving time.

  2. 100% agreed. It seems like the headline should read ‘against’ light sentence and not ‘for’ light sentence. I was a bit confused at first.

  3. After reading the story I cannot get myself to press the play button. This is really saddening to know what people do to innocent living creatures. This kind of abuse towards animals needs to stop and very harsh punishments should be allowed to animal abusers. ? 🙁

    1. Well they on tag so they will be at home, proberbly got more pets as well. Justice is a joke, get more for shop lifting

  4. All any of us need is five minutes alone in a locked room with these fucktards. Some wall-to-wall counseling would do them some good.

  5. People who hurt animals like these scum of the earth, usually turn out to be serial killers! They probably are!! POS, low life f——–g bastards! I hope Karma gets them and gets them good!

  6. I can’t read it. I can’t believe that people can be so cruel to innocent animals. I’d like to throw them repeatedly down a flight of stairs. A**holes!!

    1. I would cut off their fingers puncture their kidneys and lungs. So they can be reminded every day of their life

  7. Someone care to find out their details? I live in the UK and I’ll happily cut these little boys open and hang them by their insides…. never forget to add salt and lemon to the cut

    1. Andrew and Daniel Frankish Southampton street, Redcar Hartlepool , that’s where the scum are, think they will have police protection now, more waste of tax payers money, court waste of time too

  8. They’ll be in jail again…after they’ve moved on to torturing and killing humans. There is no punishment that the court could give them that would be enough for these horrible monsters.

  9. Throw the assholes in jail (after throwing them down the stairs, and find a nice home for the poor pup! BTW – if they go to jail, let’s tell all the animal lover inmates about their crimes! HA!

  10. In true sense they should hang till can a human can do this type of things with a gentle dog who couldnot have the power to stop them.

  11. Fuck jail!! Someone find these 2, get a bat and go to town !!! Pure evil. If hey can do that to their own dog, they can do it to a human being!!

  12. As the world gets more fucked up so does the people who live in it and the justice system keeps fucking up the punishment so why are we surprised these fuckers got away with it ?

  13. You sadistic pieces of shit – you deserve to be in prison the rest of your lives – an American prison, where fellow inmates would treat you the same way you treated that poor pup. I am disgusted.

  14. Give me 2 minutes. He will be begging for his life! If my husband sees this he won’t be able to beg for his life. My hubby is a lot stronger than me!

  15. Not reading the article nor viewing the photos especially the video. Someone please post the link of the petition so I can sign it. Thanks.

  16. I’m scared to hit the play button. I am fed up with the cruelty and joy of that cruelty that humans get from hurting, injuring, or killing an innoncent, trusting loving animal. SO ANGERED, my words would be banned and censored!! I hope the two of you get the living shit beat out if you and hurled down a flight of stairs and someone videotapes it so we csn all laugh while yiu suffer in agony. May HELL treat you BOTH as you BOTH deserve, and that’s being nice!!!???

  17. I can’t watch it either . Poor baby! People who abuse animals are sociopaths and sociopaths can’t be cured. They’ll get another animal and do the same. They should have been euthanized in a inhumane way

  18. 2 week ago when the video appears, I dont watch it, I wrote to PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) to ask Facebook members, who recognize this man … What a happiness what I read here…the correction of these bastards go on …..

  19. Is like to hurl their asses down a few fucken things. How fucken disgusting. I hope you disgusting creatures never pro create

  20. What the heck? I get on the web and I see about 10 stories like this. It’s getting ridiculous. Give harsher sentences. Let’s fix this

  21. If I could have five minutes with these sub humans, I would appreciate it. I need 4.45 minutes for them to see me coming and .15 for them both to kiss their behind goodbye!!

  22. Pick the two of the up and throw them down a flight of stair a few times, you know, like the one’s in the empire state building!
