Unbelievable this sentence got reduced

Oh man, I'm pissed off. This guy, Matthew Staines, lit a 10 week old kitten on fire just for the hell of it. The kitten was found with 2nd degree burns and later died. The guy was sentenced to a minimum eight months in jail. He appealed and they have now reduced the sentence to 100 hours of community service.

I truly believe this guy belongs in prison. He tortured a helpless kitten. The RSPCA and other groups are rightfully outraged. What sort of message is this sending to the community? There's no mention of this guy seeing a psychiatrist or anything, surely burning an animal alive is an indicator of some sort of mental disease.
