"Prosecutors said NTU had provided Chan with psychological counseling, but he still allegedly killed a second cat, which shows that he has deeply ingrained antisocial tendencies and lacks compassion for animal life. Therefore, counseling is insufficient, and Chan should be ordered to undergo psychiatric treatment at NTU Hospital, to stop him from torturing and killing any more cats, prosecutors said.
Why was Chan's case brought before a court in the first place? How was he caught torturing and killing these cats, and why wasn't he sent to a regular hospital with head and facial injuries? Would that prove to be a more or a less effective "psychiatric treatment"?
