OK, stop right there. Number one, this ain't Afghanistan. Number two, dogfighting = animal cruelty, which has been against the law for years. People have gone to jail for far less than Vick has done, and you think this isn't a big deal?

It all comes down to one thing: racism.
Ah HA! If a black man gets caught breaking the law, and he gets punished for breaking said law, it MUST be racism.

Sorry, no. Being black DOES NOT give you a free pass to break the law.

If Vick were a white guy the feds wouldn't even look at him.


If Vick were white, he'd STILL be going to prison, because you see, the Feds do not discriminate when it comes to indictments and prosecutions.

It's not like he was killing people.
Please, enough. I'm SO sick and tired of people making excuses for people who break the law. I'm especially sick and tired of black people making excuses for other black people who break the law. And you wonder why we still have a problem with real racism in this country?

Vick engaged in illegal activity, therefore he should pay the price. Case closed.

Thanks for playing.

Vick was indicted by the federal government. It's no secret that the feds hate black people. Why else would they pursue Vick for a simple dogfighting ring? People do it all the time. Vick is a target of racial profiling, and he's famous. As for what he did, he has been doing it since he was a kid. Someone had to introduce him to dogfighting. Maybe it was something that was popular where he was growing up. If that is the case we shouldn't be blaming Vick. we should blame society.

People shoot and kill other people all the time - I guess murder should be made legal too? Oh, that's right, it was "just dogs" - my bad. The feds hate black people? Right. I guess that explains why during my 13 years of employment with the federal government, as a caucasian, I was frequently passed over for promotions by lesser-qualified non-caucasians (namely blacks) in the name of "diversity," right? Oh, that's right, that was just "tokenism." My bad again.

That excuse is already taken by the bungals. Besides vick doesn't no what the laws are? He doesn't know its illegal to fight dogs? BS. He did it to himself and deserves everything he gets from not knowing better.

I could give you a million examples showing that that's a load of hooey, but why waste the bandwidth? Besides, you know that's complete bullshit, and are just using it to try to defend the indefensible.

Quote:

Um, maybe because it's ILLEGAL? Oh wait, you don't believe that people should be punished for breaking the law. My mistake.

Quote:

That may be, but so far they haven't been stupid enough to get caught, unlike Vick. But I bet you because of the fact that he was stupid enough to get caught, that a LOT more of these rings will be uncovered and busted up. It's the one and only thing in this whole affair that we owe Vick a debt of gratitude for.

Quote:

No, he isn't. Saying it a million times will not make it so. He's a target because he was engaged in illegal activity. The color of his skin has absolutely nothing to do with it.

The racism card is played out. It won't work anymore. Vick broke the law, and Vick should pay the price. Period.

Quote:
and he's famous.
That gets you one dollar. Would you care to try for two?

Quote:

So he's been a criminal most of his life? Somehow, I'm not surprised.

Quote:

So if someone told you to jump off a bridge...naked...in the Arctic...would you do it? I thought not.

Vick had the choice of not getting involved in dogfighting. He did, and now he's dealing with the consequences of that decision. He has no one to blame but himself.

Society did not screw Michael Vick. The Feds did not screw Michael Vick. Michael Vick screwed Michael Vick, plain and simple. It's about time you and the rest of his apologists realized that and stopped the pathetic excuses.

It's no secret that law enforcement hates black people. I don't understand why the feds got involved when the local law enforcement was handling the case just fine. Maybe it's because Vick is rich, black, and famous?

Look what happened to O.J. Simpson. He was set up and framed by racist cops. I'm just glad he had some good lawyers. Vick has also done a lot for his community, he has given a lot back. Don't be so hard on Vick. Remember what the Bible says, judge not lest ye be judged.

Mmmm, no - it has something to do with the "innocent" little dogfighting ring operating over several state lines, which makes it a federal rap. And please, drop the race card - that one has been (over)played to death. And OJ was as guilty as the day is long and anybody with two brain cells to rub together knows it.

Mr. Socks - is your tongue planted firmly in your cheek or is your foot stuck in your mouth?

I am going back and forth on my opinion on that - if I did not live in Atlanta I would have to assume you are joking and that nobody would seriously have your take on the recent rough patch in Senor Mexico's life. However, since I live in Atlanta I recognize it is possible you are serious.

Please share and discuss your motivation.
