Mo, in a rare, still moment, pauses long enough to receive some love from Sarah Jo.
This little dog's owner was witnessed beating him and was subsequently charged with misdemeanor cruelty. The case went to trial, but the jury hung (6-6). The District Attorney's Office initially made the decision to refile, but then abruptly dismissed the case.
We don't know why. We don't know why little Mo will be going back to the same owner. The futility and sorrow we feel cannot be measured.
The correlation between animal cruelty and cruelty towards human beings has been sadly and profoundly documented. When will we learn what justice for all means? Mo is just one little dog, but he counts. Everybeing does.
