A little background
OP's friend's parents broke into her house and killed her pet snake
OP called the cops and got the culprit arrested
Here’s how the Reddit community reacted to the story:
“Seriously, how can you even deal with that madness? I'd be on the revenge path.”
“Jesus Christ, these people deserve to be in prison.”
OP’s friends parents might be facing a 10-year-sentence
“Structured religion is true evil and it proves that every minute of everyday.“
Pets are also considered property, so it won’t be surprising if they get charged with more that just Breaking & Entering
Perhaps OP can throw in a charge on animal cruelty
“That's just insane. I can't even grasp the concept of why they would consider a snake evil.”
“That's crazy! They actually broke into your house just to kill your pet.”
According to this Redditor, OP’s parents are not overly religious, they just use religion as an excuse for terrible behavior
The Reddit community rallied around to console OP for the loss of her snake. Thankfully, the culprit was arrested and would face the consequences of their crime.
The commenters also advised OP to press charges for animal cruelty, along with the other charges.
In addition, one Redditor pointed out that such an act isn’t a sign of being overly religious. Rather, it shows how people use religion as an excuse to be terrible humans.
