Absolutely. They are entitled to it.

Following up on the decision of the SCLC to discredit its past achievements by giving Vick a community service award, the NAACP chops away at its heritage of public service with these insightful comments:

The president of the Atlanta chapter of the NAACP criticized the prosecution of Vick at a news conference Monday morning. Dr. R.L. White, Jr., accused the government of "piling on."

"There's a penalty in football for piling on," White told reporters. "After a player has been tackled and somebody piles on, they're penalized for unnecessary roughness. Today, the NAACP blows the whistle and warns the powers that be that you are piling on."


http://www.cnn.com/2007/US/law/07/30...ing/index.html

"Piling on"??!!

On the basis of what; the feds should leave #7 alone after he already has been subjected to the sifting investigation of local DA Poindexter?

What next - a defense of dogfighting as just another hobby?

Attached is a link to the "statement of facts" to which Vick's former co-defendant, Tony Taylor, will testify.

http://alt.cimedia.com/ajc/pdf/vicktaylor0730.pdf

Apparently the real action is in winner take all jousts between 2 dogs, with each owner putting up 50% of the pot.

Taylor left the operation in the fall of 2004 (IMO Vick's cuz has flipped and will put Vick in the middle of events through 2007) but definitely puts Vick in a position as more than a passive investor. Vick's defense will focus on beating up 'T" and the as yet unidentified CWs.

My bet is the superseding indictment that is in the works may add RICO and/or money laundering counts, which definitely juices up the potential sentence.

After the last 3-4 weeks, Arthur Blank's gonna think Tony Stewart's a choir boy. At least Smoke doesn't have the Feds crawling all over him like Michael Vick does.
