Adell Ziegler is a deplorable human being.

He bragged about burning a Jack Russell terrier puppy in 2012 after his arrest, and received the maximum sentence for his crime without showing any sincere signs of remorse for his brutality.

As a result, I’m having a hard time getting too upset over his recent shooting.

Adell Ziegler, 21, who served a brief state prison term for setting fire to a Jack Russell terrier that came to be known as Phoenix, was hospitalized after being shot Monday morning on Humboldt Parkway, two Buffalo police officials confirmed for The Buffalo News.

Ziegler was shot at 9:10 a.m. while in the 600 block of Humboldt. He was taken to Erie County Medical Center for treatment of gunshot wounds to his groin and buttocks. He was listed in stable condition at the hospital.

As of late Monday afternoon, no arrests had been made in the shooting.

With any luck, Ziegler was neutered by the groin shot.

Witnesses have not been forthcoming, but there is a rumor that the shooter has been described as being mostly white, wearing a black mask, and was about 2’1″ tall.
