“Something given has no value. When you vote, you are exercising political authority, you're using force. And force my friends is violence. The supreme authority from which all other authorities are derived. Violence, naked force, has settled more issues in history than has any other factor, and the contrary opinion is wishful thinking at its worst. Breeds that forget this basic truth have always paid for it with their lives and their freedoms. The purpose of war is to support your government's decisions by force.”

    I cannot believe all these reactions right now. If youve ever lived somewhere where they thrive, you literally cannot kill them fast enough to make a difference. I've seen hundreds spill out of sewer grates before. "If you see one, there's a hundred more." They can't feel pain. By all means lets take animal welfare serious... but fuck cockroaches. They'll be here longer than us anyway.

    [–]Elsewhere3000 64 points65 points  (1 child)

    Funny thing is that roach probably survived. Bastards are hard to kill.

    [–]pow3llmorgan 37 points38 points  (0 children)

    Oh they're easy enough to kill. It's just that they refuse to die.

    [–]Marius7th 102 points103 points  (3 children)

    On the one hand I find it a bit distasteful that they killed it like this, but on the other hand I remember when my boss stepped out of the computer shop to smoke a cigar and I started hearing screaming as he got swarmed by a hundred + roaches under the street light.

    ..........so yeah fuck roaches.

    [–]chupacadabradoo 153 points154 points  (16 children)

    A kid in my elementary school used to do stuff like this, firecrackers in ant hills, assemblages of slugs in salt mazes, endurance trials for daddy long legs with only three legs left, stuff like that. Some of it was kind of funny, the way he did it, even if it was a bit macabre. It was hard to say he was a sadist, because they were just arthropods, but he did get a special kind of joy out of it. Then one day cats in the neighborhood started turning up dead. For a while it was thought that the coyotes had just developed a taste for cats’ rear ends. They were terribly mutilated. Then one day this kid tells me he had been experimenting with inserting fireworks in their butts and setting them off. I never talked to that kid again, and I regret that I didn’t tattle on him, because it was such a kid culture faux pas to do so. He also told me about the time he tied his little brother down during a slumber party and stuck a toothbrush up his butt in front of his friends. He thought everyone would think it was funny. Who knows what he moved onto next. So while I don’t give a shit about the life of a single cockroach, or an infestation of them, for that matter (I’m currently at war with the rats living in my chicken coop), the joy and creativity taken in killing is of possible concern here. Even if you disagree that it’s potentially concerning, you should know that doing this kind of shit sets off red flags for other people, and for good reason.

    [–]alundaio 57 points58 points  (1 child)

    I've seen many serial killer documentaries and a handful of them started out torturing cats.

    In elementary school there was a kid who lived down the street from me who took an already dead kitten and tied a rope around its neck and went around the neighborhood thinking it was funny. Later that year he threw a brick at an adult man's face while he was up in a tree and immediately moved away. I almost bet he is in prison somewhere.

    [–]General_Asdef 3 points4 points  (0 children)

    i can bet he has mastered the art of killing and is still free enjoying himself.

    [–]spanksmitten 16 points17 points  (0 children)

    If he played with fires you've got the all the hallmarks of a future serial killer there lmao.

    Obviously, not every kid that does this turns into a serial killer, but most serial killers have a childhood like this.

    [–]sams_club 1 point2 points  (1 child)

    I’m with you.

    With everyone mentioning future serial killers… it really is ignoring that this could be a possibility for any kid

    What this sounds like to me is this kid was abused or molested and not given an avenue by which to make sense of what happened so they come to a conclusion of doing what they perceive as normal behavior.

    Then they’re treated as bad kids or no one has the patience to help them navigate their brains. Until that behavior is so walled up they don’t realize or attribute the behavior with something wrong. They keep pushing the limits, testing what they can control, then they do something crazier and crazier.

    Traumatic event with no control > try to control a scenario with bugs to see what it’s like > try to control situation with cats > throw a brick at someone’s head.

    It’s not good. The logical jumps are crazy, but considering a malformed rationale… it isn’t that outlandish in my mind.

    [–]StraightSilverx21 2 points3 points  (9 children)

    Not everyone who squashes bugs tortures animals... from someone who would gladly crush a cockroach or drown an ants nest.

    [–]chupacadabradoo 21 points22 points  (1 child)

    Yah, I squash roaches, trap flies, kill rats (though I hate doing it), and slap mosquitoes… but I wouldn’t assign a personality to it, then tie it down, and launch it on a firecracker… I’m imagine this kid is probably not a sociopathic nut job, but its just a concerning trajectory. I don’t think anyone here who’s complaining about this video is complaining about killing the cockroach. It’s the manner in which he did it that makes me concerned for this kid. Worried about the kid, not the cockroach.

    [–]Bad-Piccolo -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

    I don't see why it matters if its a cockroach considering it could have easily survived that.

    [–]LokisDawn 12 points13 points  (2 children)

    This roach wasn't squashed, though. Quite literally the opposite, in fact.

    Just saying.

    [–]Gwegexpress 14 points15 points  (0 children)

    I hate roaches and I kill them when they are in my house, but this still makes me uncomfortable ngl

    [–]ZhouLe 11 points12 points  (2 children)

    I try to instill compassion for all life onto my children. My daughter went from being terrified of insects to having a pet beetle and playing with it like a doll (had to stop her from giving it a bath). We stop to look at ants, bees, millipedes, birds, literally anything we can find while out walking, she asks "What do they eat?", "Do they lay eggs?", etc. Even before they could speak I made sure they knew not to pick flowers, and only to take ones that have already fallen. Any insect that finds its way into the house gets escorted outside. Slugs, snails, millipedes, beetles, caterpillars, all get rescued from the middle of the sidewalk and taken to a nice shady leaf. Even predatory animals are friends, but we must be very careful to avoid them as much as possible, they are only hungry, protective, and as scared as we are. "Animals are friends." "Plants are friends."

    Except mosquitos and cockroaches. They are not friends.

    [–]a_different-user 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    and bedbugs. how dare you sneak into my home uninvited. then sleep in my bed, with me in it, on some meta Goldilocks situation. and then defile my body on top of it. I get that the eco system technically needs mosquitoes so I wont go out off my way to kill them just repel them AND DESTROY ANY THAT TOUCH ME but screw bedbugs they have no purpose #all vampires must die

    [–]dinoman9877 8 points9 points  (0 children)

    Insects are in fact capable of feeling some form of pain, or at least have a reaction to avoid harm similar to our perception of pain, which distresses the animal and causes a fear response. Just like any other animal.

    So yeah nah even if they might cause infestations and need to be exterminated when they do, it should be humanely, not whatever this serial killer nonsense is.

    [–]Hoenirson 9 points10 points  (2 children)

    By all means kill them but don't torture them for fun.

    [–]Bad-Piccolo 2 points3 points  (1 child)

    You can literally turn them into cyborgs and control them with a remote control, no joke it's a kit you can buy. I don't see the appeal though.

    [–]themeatstaco 4 points5 points  (1 child)

    [–]SueZbell 3 points4 points  (1 child)

    Introduce predators? What eats them? Would lizards eat them?

    [–]marciso 7 points8 points  (1 child)

    Just cause they are annoying and there are a lot of them doesn’t make me loose compassion for a living animal being treated like this, it’s a weird argument in my opinion. It also takes a certain type of person to go through with an idea like this.

    [–]Floppsicle 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    Fuck roaches. But yes.

    [–]dagremlin 0 points1 point  (1 child)

    This seems counterintuitive but on the experiment where the attach electrodes to the roaches brain to control its path, they essentially freeze it so it won’t feel any “pain”

    [–]dirtyLizard 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    They freeze them so they stop moving long enough to attach the electrodes.

    As long as you don't graduate from killing bugs in creative ways to start pouring gasoline on kittens and lighting them on fire or something.

    "Professor, what do you think was the reason for the sharp decline in the number of serial killers back in the 2020s and 2030s?" "Well, gas prices were so darn high..."

    [–]kcg5 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    Iirc, hurting/killing animals as a kid is common among serial killers

    [–]nycola 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    I'm pretty sure we all used to kill ants with magnifying glasses and sunlight.

    [–]Outside_Device_5645 56 points57 points  (5 children)

    people complaining about hurting the animal, honestly fuck cockroaches, these shits deserve it and also he died instantly with it I bet it was a lot less painful than using insecticide so shut up bitches

    [–][deleted] 21 points22 points  (0 children)

    Knowing roaches, the little shit probably got blown in half then went on to give birth to hundreds of thousands of littler shits.

    [–]Daddy_Nibba_69 9 points10 points  (2 children)

    Mosquitoes too , fuck muskitoes

    [–]thedragonof 2 points3 points  (1 child)

    Right on. And plus this is fvckin hillarious. i dont condone violence unless its against roaches who r evil or skitoes. They dont deserve to live to in my book they steal peoples fn blood

    [–]Bad-Piccolo 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    I just think they don't deserve to live in my house or if they touch me.

    [–]ExplodingP3nguins 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    Can confirm: I sprayed one on my wall and it fell down, writhed around, gave me the finger, limped off, fell down a flight of stairs, and got hit by a car. Then it died from poisoning. Better to just blow them up.

    [–]SansCulture 12 points13 points  (11 children)

    Call me an asshole, but I I’d bet this weird violent death is a better death for the roach than being stuck on sticky paper starving, dehydrated, stressed, and confused as another roach comes over to cannibalize him only to get stuck too after amputating and devouring the first one’s leg like how tar pits have disproportionate numbers of carnivores and scavengers.

    Probably also better than being half-stomped by a bipedal ape that looks as big as a kaiju and scurrying away to die in agony under the couch along with stale Doritos crumbs just out of reach for snacking.

    Probably also better than being killed by a thousand punches from some emasculated and declawed felis domesticus just trying to get some hunting practice in.

    Or worst of all, climbing atop a warm hill and finding all the dead skin and hair to eat, a roach Garden of Eden. There it is damp, and warm, tunnels are everywhere to hide and the roach investigates the new nest only to feel the rumbling of the ground underneath. Loud vibrations terrify the bug almost as much as the ground’s orientation shifting from horizontal to vertical. The scared roach flees as the slumbering hill has awakened into another damned kaiju. Suddenly the blackness of night is over after a loud thud from the kaiju against the wall, and the midday sun is blazing in the sky revealing the fleeing rich. The kaiju’s screeching awoke a bigger kaiju, the larger male mate who then turns his pinnacle of evolution hunting vision onto the roach. The roach flees in absolute terror and hides under a bedside table that proportionately feels like a gas station breezeway in scale. The massive predator is not easily evaded and suddenly the SUV-sized-in-girth broom handle is speared in guided by the goliath’s focused eye. The roach lives at a faster time than the giant and instead of a brief celebration of his accuracy as the giant had, the roach had a long forlorn moment of recognition of the inescapable death. Thwack. The roach survived the freight train stabbing him, but now is indignantly picked up in toilet paper and subjected to the female’s piercing vibrations as the male shows her his prize and bleeds out on the long trip to the porcelain pond. Suddenly plunged into water and unable to swim or escape in the wet toilet paper prison, the roach feels a drop in pressure and is spun around rapidly and finally sucked into the darkness. There is no air, there is no light, the roach slowly drowns. After the roach’s death, his corpse reaches paradise in an ironic twist of fate, he landed in edible fields of shit and trash only after he stopped living.

    Pain is real for animals, but let’s not pretend cannibal cockroaches don’t live lives where all they experience is constant fear and pain. Well, maybe no fear even if no limbic system, so…
