Vick is Sick! Dog fighting to the death is just wrong.

Mike Vick is one sick puppy. ESPN - Source: Vick a 'heavyweight' in dogfighting - NFL Killing dogs for sport is just unforgivable. Nfl: Michael Vick Likes To Watch Dogs Kill Each Other - Deadspin The hopefully ex-Quarterback for the Atlanta Falcons is lying low nowadays and rightfully so. There is no justification for his behavior, and it seems many knew of his actions for years. Listening to sports talk radio, there have been some apologists believe it or not. One of the excuses being used is the excuse that the black community do not look at dogs in the same way as whites. What?

Check out this big shout out in support for Vick that came out from none other than Deion Sanders in the form of an article. The News-Press, news-press.com, Sports, Deion column: Don't be too quick to judge Vick

Wow, this time and era just sometimes amazes me with it's warped priorities and decadence. And I grew up in the 60's!

If the allegations are proven in a court of law, then the punishment should be that Vick has to go into the ring to fight a pack of big mean starving pit bulls to the death.

I so agree with you, Richard.

I have been following this case closely. I have Sirius Satellite Radio, which has an NFL channel. Whenver I tuned in last week it was all about Vick and his federal indictment.

The allegations contained in the indictment would disgust even a marginal animal lover. You can read the indictment online at www.thesmokinggun.com.

This is turning into a public relations nightmare for the NFL. Not only is one of their most recognizable athletes charged with gruesome crimes that to many are just a step below from serial killing, current and former stars such as Sanders, Emmitt Smith and Clinton Portis are further demonstrating the depth of debauchery among NFL players.

I do fret somewhat that the outcry against Vick, and even my own diatribe above, could be labeled as racist because all the players I mention above are black. But that should not get in the way of prosecuting this crime and putting a stop to this horrid "sport" nationwide.

I doubt Vick will ever play another down in the NFL. Not unless the feds totally screwed up their investigation, which is doubtful. Already his co-defendants, his friends, are beginning to roll.

I admit that being the San Diego Chargers fan that I am, Vick's demise gives me an excuse to pound my chest over the Chargers' decision to pass on drafting Vick in 2001. But torturing and killing dogs for sport and business would turn my stomach no matter who was involved.

This is not a black thing. I've heard there are dogfighting rings in Del Norte. Don't agree Vick is sick, just a criminal. Lock him up, throw away the key.

Had neighbors who have now sold their house that had pit bulls in their garage in cages with ears cut off. This is usually the sign of fighting dogs. Some of them had scars. They also bred pit bulls and let some of them roam the neighborhood. Glad when they went.

Well Nick Bravo has completely lost his mind. Now he's calling for the assassination of local journalists. Are any of you doogooders lifting a finger? I thought not. Besides its fun to watch insanity in progress from a safe distance.

When did it become permissible to criticize black people?

Be wary when someone tells you "it's ok to fight dogs" because it's part of black culture."

These are the type of people who will say "wife-beating is acceptable in some parts of America" because "wife-beating is a culturally-accepted part" of this or that group's character.

People who advise such attitudes are no friends of American Freedom. In our country, we pass laws that pertain to people across the boards. Just because the country you came from accepts female genital mutilation, we do NOT accept it here, so don't even try it! No special exceptions for YOU.

Same with dog fighting. Maybe in some foreign country a long time ago, dog fighting was the sport of kings. Well, pal, we are in America and we don't much care for kings. And we sure as hell don't care for savage, merciless, lawbreaking scum who treat dogs the way those dogs were treated at the property allegedly owned by Michael Vick.

The court will decide if Vick is guilty. With luck, all the low scum who engaged in this torture will be convicted and sentenced to long stretches in "the Pen."

Nick, no one believes your claims of victimhood anymore, and you'd have to be high on Bravo's meds to believe Douglas or any other reporter is going to hire a goon squad just to chase you around behind the bars.

Are you leaving Nick? Please do. And quit stalking the locals before you go. Hell, you might even think about apologizing, not just to Charles but to Kevin, Harmony and all the other people you terrorize.

Nick can't get respect so he's going for fear. Maybe we should all be glad that Nick isn't the monster we claim he is because then we'd actually have something to worry about. Maybe when we hear nothing from him that's when we should worry.

Today's newspapers say three or four of Michael Vick's fellow African-Americans just pulled off a home invasion on Main Street in Fortuna.

No word yet on whether anyone there was tortured, raped, or mutilated. Certain aspects of the case are being kept quiet, according to law enforcement officials.

Today's papers carried not one word about the Home Invasion in Fortuna.

The public probably should not be informed about crimes anyway. It just upsets the cattle (us) and interferes with our work efficiency. Better for us to keep our noses to the grindstone and pretend that what happens to our neighbors will never happen to us. Mooo!

If we don't like kings in America, then why do is George Bush still our president?

Anonymous said...

We in America don't like kings.

But even more than that, we don't like studying civics or going to city council meetings or teaching our kids how to stand up be counted.

We like to bitch and moan about things we don't like when we talk with our neighbors across the back fence, but we almost never do that in the office of an elected official.

We are pretty poor examples of a self-governing people.

Oh, yeah! And we complain about our fellow-citizens way too much.
