On one hand, you could argue that the difference is intent and malice. On the other hand, my story on Mike Vick some time ago (where I said that most of us don't have the standing to condemn him, I think I made the same comparison to Leonard Little, another DUI killer, and wondered if race played a part of our reaction) got the most negative feedback of anything I have ever wrote. People care about animals more than they care about adult humans.
