Squaddie orders dog to kill pussy
A SICKO soldier has been banned from keeping animals after telling his pet pitbull to “kill” a cat.
Squaddie Howard Jones, 22, told his dog Enzo to attack a white tabby screaming: “Kill it! Kill it! Get it! Get it!”
The cat, called Squea, received horrific injuries and later had to be put down.
Jones, of Llandudno, North Wales, admitted possessing the dangerous dog and causing unnecessary suffering to the cat.
But his dog was allowed to live.
Jones received an 18-month community order and was fined £100.
He was also ordered to pay £300 costs, £240 compensation and a £15 victim surcharge by Llandudno magistrates. dead in January 1993 as he queued for a takeaway in Moss Side.
When he was killed community leaders responded and launched the ‘Enough is Enough’ campaign with posters and an orgainised campaign to keep youngsters out of gangs.

One resident of the Ordsall Estate, who does not want to be named for fear of reprisals, said: “This will never end.

“They get respect, power and money – it’s irresistible to them.”
After the lull following Benji’s death violence broke out again, and at its height in the late 90s the wars between the Gooch, Doddington, and two other gangs – the Longsight Crew and the Pitt Bill Crew – alone left 27 dead and 250 wounded over a blood-soaked five years.
But police reacted strongly and they have scored huge successes with many of the gang leaders from the late 1990s now in jail or dead.
of the Doddington Gang was Ian Mcleod, who is currently serving 21 years for his part in an attempted assassination at the Brass Handles pub in Salford in 2006.
The 46-year-old ruled his patch with an iron fist during the long running turf war with the Gooch Close Gang and he was described by a judge as the “leader of the pack”.
He was caught when the hit on a Gooch Close member he’d organised backfired and his own two gunmen were killed.
