  1. Clearly, he’s a psycho (along with his laughing accomplice) — they belong in rubber rooms – they belong in jail for a very long time! Where’s the cat? I pray and hope that this sweetie will make it wherever he or she is — when found, i pray that someone caring and loving will adopt her or him. I hope there’s an update on this sad piece of news!

    1. I am glad they arrested him.
      It was so funny to kick a cat twenty feet ( and the cat probably suffered internal injuries).
      What’s next for this guy, kicking babies for laughs?
      Burning toddlers with his joint for bigger laughs.

      He should be kicked out of this housing complex.
      Violent people have no business being around defenseless animals or children.

  2. You can find him on Facebook. He goes by the name Andre TooRude Robinson. The shirt he is wearing on the video of kicking the cat is the same he is wearing in one of his pictures. He is a real piece of crap. Hope someone kicks his mother in the face. All his pictures appear that he is smoking weed.
