of course this is just a hypothetical. i think it would be quickly moved with the reasonning he couldnt (or the state couldnt) get a fair trial either way.
Vick would not be convicted by an Atlanta jury, but I do not think he would be acquitted either. The jury would hang on racial/socioeconomic lines. Mr. Mexico ain't a hero to everyone in these parts.

Race is still the flash point for a lot of what goes in Atlanta, with a thriving black community in one of the most Republican/conservative states in the nation. Our current judicial soap opera is the defendant who, as a 17 year old black high school athlete, had consensual oral sex with a 15 year old girl (how do we know it was consensual? - it was videotaped!). Under Georgia law, that got him a conviction for statutory rape and a mandatory 10 year prison sentence. Al Sharpton has been a recent visitor here to express his disappointment regarding the conviction.

Vick's indictment will just add napalm to such ATL debates.

lol. well if a jury of his peers meant 12 people who were worth more than $100,000,000 i think he would be convicted before a drop of evidence was heard just for being a punk, thug, dumbass.

.
i saw a special on tv about that a while back. i was pretty appaled and felt sorry for the kid. ive done the exact same "crime", although i dont believe 17 and 15 is punishable in this state. regarless i doubt many teenagers are checking local statutes in the heat of the moment, before receiving a consensual hummer .

no offense, but besides the humidity, the racial tensions and this type of BS that still exists is what will keep me from ever doing more than a brief visit to the dirty south, if i have any say about it.

I believe the kid was released not to long ago. I think the state dropped the sentence.

Anyways maybe he can go visit vick in the slammer.

Regardless of what we all think, I wonder how Crumpler is going to feel being Dante's #1 target?

No way Vick walks. Prez Busch passed a bill in early may regarding animal fighting. This is the perfect situation to set an example. Vick may plea-bargain at best. Lets see how much he talks and if there are any other repercussions in the leaque. Gamblings could be a big issue as well regarding players.

ROTFL... Thank you for showing respect to the president... by calling him by his title (something that should be done with ALL presidents), but I can tell your a Pittsburgher... cause he isn't associated with the beer! Busch... Actually, it is BUsh!

LOLOLOL... I know, it was probably just a typo, but it was too good to pass up!

LOL - welcome to the forum Brother.

The Patriots didn't bother with swagger to start this NFL season; they went straight to defiant. Either you're one of them or you're about to get crushed.
