What bothers me the most about the whole issue is that there are people out there who:

1 - Don't care and feel he is being given a "raw deal" and he should be allowed to just play football

2 - There are some who are trying to make this a race issue because he's black. C'mon people, it's about torturing and killing animals here, it has nothing to with the color of his skin...

Idiots.

Dog fighting is much more prevalent than people realize, there is info available on the HSUS web site. Vick is just a high profile case-but anyone who would do such things to animals/know it was going on and do nothing and support such things financially needs to be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. Torturing and killing animals in such a heinous way is not a sport. Many serial killers started out by torturing and killing animals when they were kids. At least people can attempt to defend themselves, animals are defenseless. Especially when tied to a "rape rack", for example.

And I think it's pathetic to inject race into this, my feelings about him have nothing whatsoever to do with his race. I will wait until all the facts come out in court or wherever, but yes I did sign the HSUS petitions to the NFL and Nike and I am proud to say that I did.

Yeah, unfortunately, you're going to get those people who cry foul every time a Black person gets his or her hand slapped for screwing up. It's pitiful, but there it is. Some Black people believe they should never, ever, EVER get in trouble because 'We are an oppressed people! It's not our fault!'. I have to roll my eyes and sigh, as a Black person, and go, "But when do we grow up and take responsibility for ourselves? Yes, life is tough because of our skin color - the KKK and its ilk is still out there - but why make it worse by deliberately hanging on to ignorance?' But then, I'm a strange duck by all accounts. Don't mind me.

Same with a lot of dogs that are stolen. They're used as bait. Same with a lot of the pit bulls themselves that don't end up "tough enough"

part of the problem here is that the Vick bros have let celebrity get to their heads and they think they are above everyone else and can get away with doing whatever they want.

If what he says in court is true, which he said only his brother did it, he should still definently be going to jail, no doubt about it, because he still knew it was going on and did absolutely nothing about it.

No way hes going to get out of this and if he does this will be a huge problem around the world...

Well if he does get about it, lets just hope that he doesnt write a book about it

It's sad, but no.
And probably he will only have to pay a fine if it turns out he isn't involved in itbesides of knowing. I don't know if there would even be a jail sentence in a kiss of illegal dog fighting, maybe someone can clear that up?

I believe the penalty is up to 6 years of imprisonment.

If dogs had better communication skills they probably would not resort to violence.

Vick is allegedly in negotiations for a plea bargain today, so he will never serve any time. The others were all getting pleas in exchange for giving the information about his involvement.

Yeah, but his NFL career is almost certainly over.

I wouldn't be so certain about that.

The person posting here was rather offensive in many ways.

I've been googling the story and it sounds repulsive.
Woah, nice memory, Angie. I remember Quick Vick being quite the... conservative.

Based on the IPs that member posted from, I doubt it could possibly be the same person. Michael Vick isn't a particularly unusual name.
