Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Michael Vick - should he stay or should he go now?:

Comments

Julie Pippert

I don't trust fair trials for celebrities, especially sports stars.

But I think he ought to be taken down...like one of his dogs.

Izzy

If he is, in fact, guilty, I hope he goes to prison and gets some abuse of his own, DAILY, for the length of his sentence. Animal abuse is something I cannot abide under ANY circumstances.

Wendy

It is a disgusting story and you were right about that rape stand. It is hard to believe that even legitmate breeders (according to the article) would use it. When he is found guilty he should be expelled from the NFL permantly and dropped from his endorsments. It needs to be shown that just because you are high profile that you dont get away with crimes. And dogfighting and aniumal abuse are illegal.

However, I have to agree with Julie that I dont trust our legal system when money and fame are involved. It appears that here in America you can buy your way out of just about anything.

Katie

Oh, I feel the same way you do. I, too, literally felt sick to my stomach when I read about the atrocities that he put those dogs through. He's a cruel man and deserves to feel every pain that he inflicted on those poor helpless animals.

Given what little I know of it, I feel that there's no way he could have been ignorant of the goings on and he did nothing to stop it. That's the BEST case scenario from what I can see. Even best case scenario he doesn't get to play in the NFL ever again. In my opinion he should never be allowed to do anything he loves ever again and his money should be distributed to no kill shelters all over the country, even the money he may be giving to family members so he gets a taste of what collateral damage is like.

My husband has gone on an email campaign to every company associated with Vick (Coca Cola, Nike, etc.) and called for them to terminate their contracts with him. Of course, that won't happen because they could just get sued for terminating contracts. The legal system will continue to protect him, as well as the money he has, which will allow him to hire a flashy lawyer. He'll get a slap on the wrist and it will be an absolute disgrace. He is a monster.

Ah yes. I've been following this because it's in my neck of the woods where the Vicks are practically considered gods & excused for all sorts of bad behavior. But even here everyone thinks this is disgusting.

I have to caution the innocent until proven guilty thing. You know, because I'm a lawyer and all, but still.... If he's convicted (not holding my breath here) he should never play for the NFL again.

I first heard about this on NPR while driving around with the boy. I think it was a coach, or past coach speaking. It sortof went along the lines of: oh dear - he's just not the nice kid we knew, must be that bad crowd he runs with. he just needs some guidance...

Personally, I think they should suspend now, and if convicted, the NFL should sever ties. FOREVER.

It's even more horrifying how widespread this is.

A dear friend's boyfriend's brother was murdered most likely by people involved in a fighting ring. He had advertised his litter of Boxer puppies in the paper, someone came by and asked if they were aggressive. The last thing this breed is. He called his brother saying these crazy guys had come around to look at the litter and were probably looking for dogs to fight. Shortly thereafter they returned, shot him in the face, killing him and took the dogs.

Hmmm... Just read the full indictment... It's incredibly detailed...

Conviction? I think there may be some hope. After all, this country did have laws to protect the rights of animals before it had laws protecting the rights of children...

Rusti

I think he definitely should have been suspended - and if he is convicted of the deeds he allegedly had part in - I'm praying for the maximum sentence... the whole thing just makes me sick. What kind of sick, twisted individuals could do that to an animal? There must be something off in their head... it's just wrong. Sick & wrong. He should be kicked out of the NFL permanently - theres no way he didn't have any knowledge of what was happening. Thats a load of crap.
