There is no question that criminals often think that they have a superiority complex. They literally seem to think that they know better than everyone else. The latest individual to fit this profile would be a Kentucky man named Zachary Gross.
This man was originally arrested because he was accused of scalping his girlfriend and ordering Capone, his pet pit bull, to go ahead and attack her and finish the job. The Kentucky Enquirer also reported that 31-year-old Zachary Gross had continued to maintain at sentencing that his dog “Capone” alone was responsible for the injuries of his now ex-girlfriend, Marilyn Stanley.
Gross continued his charade, telling Boone County Judge Rick Brueggemann that he feels “horrible” that all of this happened to his ex-girlfriend. However, he continued to deny responsibility. Here is the piece de resistance of Gross’ behavior in front of the judge: he allegedly told this judge that he was “not asking for your mercy. Just give me the 20. I don’t need a lecture.”
Despite Gross’ lack of remorse, that doesn’t change the fact that Stanley faced a long recovery ahead of her. She said she needed a half-dozen surgeries and permanent nerve damage. Indeed, there was a trauma expert who testified during the trial that the cuts to her head were actually MORE CONSISTENT with the use of a sharp knife and not dog bites. Could it be that this thug actually scalped his significant other and blamed it on his dog?
Several years have come and gone since this original offense occurred, but the victim of this monster has now COME FORWARD, and she said that the whole ordeal began after the wrong person tagged her on a Facebook post. This woman recounted how this insanely jealous beast not only beat her unconscious but then when she awoke handed her a bag of her bloody hair.
In all honesty, it’s hard to tell who is worse: the man, or his dog! Either way, when this person, in his supreme arrogance, literally TOLD the judge that he wanted 20 years, the jurist was more than happy to oblige.
