I don't know whether to believe that or not. If Stallworth had gotten drunk and then started waving a loaded gun around, and it went off and killed someone ... something tells me there'd be a little more outrage. I don't know why, but for some reason, people act like it's less bad to kill someone by running them over than to kill them some other way. But it's still the same idea; he got drunk and did something dangerous that everyone knows you're not supposed to do.
I can't believe anyone would even think of comparing this to what Vick did. Someone is dead because of this.
