I used to be very upset towards animal abusers, but now when I hear about dogs getting their ears lobbed off by crazies I'm disappointed, but not angry like other people online who want to kill and torture them.
Is something wrong with me? How do I fix it? Why do I feel bothered by how angered they are?

Probably due to seeing it so much you're becoming more desensitized to it. It's not that you don't think it's fucked up, just that you've seen it before. It's not as gut-churning or anger inducing as it was before because it's not as much of a shock to you that it happens. It's the same as not laughing as much at a joke even if it's still funny, or not crying at funerals even if they are sad. It's not a big deal. A lot of people display this and it's not really a problem.

I don't think you're wrong. Personally I get a little uncomfortable when I see people ganging up and expressing hatred and a wish to harm and torture other people, no matter what it is the person has done to supposedly deserve it, be it animal abuse or some other serious crime. I think the people getting upset and calling for their blood don't really always realize what they're saying, and how inhumane their ideas they're expressing can be, and can't separate their emotional biases from a true sense of morality. Don't get me wrong, I still believe that some form of punishment should be meted in the name of justice when a crime is committed, just that it's wrong to inflict anything cruel of unusual.

The other day, I saw a friend on facebook express happiness and like an article about that kid that shot up a church, Dylan Roof I think it was. The article announced that he's been sentenced to death. And I believe that the crime he committed was very wrong and very hateful and cruel, and I sort of don't even want to question the legal system's decision on his sentence. Yet it still makes me uneasy to see my friend reveling and celebrating the announcement that a 21 year old man will be put to death. That's like public execution by guillotine levels of bloodthirsty, only even less impersonal because she expressed this over social media.

congratulations, you stopped virtue signalling and caring for others opinions

Because most people who really get into that kind of mob-mentality, vigilante justice type of thing are just hateful little twerps misdirecting the anger they've built up in their own personal lives. All talk and no action, always in search of a "deserving" target to air out their own evils

Why expend so much energy on being mad :( It doesn't do any good, just makes your day worse.
