"The First Amendment says that you can say whatever you want. However, decency and common sense require that one carefully consider their words and ideas before opening their mouth (or hitting that keyboard). There are too many people in America who think the First Amendment is a license to simply be outrageous." -- Michael Rivero

On Friday, trans-identified male Scarlet Blake, 26, was found guilty by the Oxford Crown Court of murdering Jorge Martin Carreno, 30, in July 2021.

According to Sky News, Blake live streamed himself skinning a cat and placing it in a blender after watching the Netflix documentary "Don't F*** With Cats just four months before he killed Carreno.

During the trial, prosecutor Alison Morgan said that Blake had a "disturbing interest in what it would be like to harm a living creature." They added, "She [Blake] described herself to others as being someone who derived sexual gratification from the thought of violence and the thought of death."

In the CCTV footage of the killing, Blake is seen walking up to Carreno wearing a mask before hitting him over the head and strangling him. The investigation was launched after Blake's former partner Aslynn Bell reported to detectives that he had confessed to the murder and used a homemade garrote to do it.

"He died because he encountered the defendant on that night," Morgan told the jury. "He died because he met a person who had a fixation with violence and with knowing what it would feel like to kill someone."

Blake confessed to the killing of the cat but, claimed that Carreno was still alive after the assault and that he made up the details to impress Bell. "I told Ashlynn that I killed that person, I made up the details in a dramatic way," he said.
