30-somethings attack Goth

GOTHIC - A 21-year-old goth girl in Australia was attacked last week in Australia by a 30-something couple who didn't like her clothes.

Gregory Paul Gallagher, 37, and Stacey Louise Hober, 34, both from Parrearra pleaded guilty in Caloundra Magistrates Court last Monday to common assault.

Kelly Owen was out on the town with a younger friend celebrating her 21st birthday with a quiet dinner when she insulted and accosted by the older couple who approached Owen, insulted her choice of clothing and then proceeded to threaten and attack her.

Owen tried to defend herself and fight back but Gregory Gallagher punched her repeatedly in the temple and jaw. Owen suffered bruises and several cuts to her eye.

The attackers were fined a sum of $450 Australian dollars.

Gothic Kittens

In other news... a different couple in Pennsylvania has been charged with six counts of cruelty to animals and three counts of criminal conspiracy for trying to sell pierced "gothic" kittens on eBay.

The black kittens that were mutilated and then auctioned for hundreds of dollars online as “gothic” cried in pain each time they were pierced with 14-gauge jewelry, yet their marketers were eager “to get this aspect of their business up and running,” according to charges filed this week.

Holly Crawford, 34, and William Blansett, 37, operators of a grooming business known as Pawside Parlor in Pennsylvania bragged they would put "a rubber band tightly around the base of the tail to stop circulation to the tail, which eventually falls off" and said "the kittens cried when she pierced them, but seemed fine afterward."

Evidently people need to learn restraint when it comes to hurting both people and animals. Cruelty to animals is one of the first signs of mental instability.
