I saw a article today talking about how Michael Vick should never be allowed to play football again. Really? Did he not serve his time in jail for his conviction? Did he not lose enough money already due to his past actions? It's amazing to me the attention he got for his dogfighting ring. It is a horrible crime that he got swift and just punishment for. Why cant people just let it go now. It's still amazing me to that Leonard Little played in the NFL after a manslaughter DUI. People didnt protest his games afterwards, radio shows phone lines werent tied up for days about his case. He killed 2 HUMAN BEINGS. But his name wasnt on the back of people's jerseys, so he didnt get much attention. He wasnt a anti establishment QB who alot of people were on the fence about. Mike Vick did horrible things and he paid dearly for it. Isnt the point of corrections to "correct" the behaviors that got the person in there to begin with. Just because the person who needed the help happened to be rich doesnt make him a worse person. We always try to crucify those who have more than us worse because we are jealous of the things they have or had. We hate Mike Vick because he had a ton of talent and money and threw it away, but does that make his crime worse? Because he's black and famous does that mean he is a horrible person who cant ever again do what he's good at?
And PETA people deep down I want you to actually stop and logically think about this question would you protest Mike Vick working again if he had never played in the NFL? Would you protest him say if he were a trash man going back to his life? Or a plumber? Or a janitor? Would you protest a person convicted of the same crimes as Mike Vick if that person were going back to work as a Janitor? If the answer is no leave Vick alone you HYPOCRITE jerks because your cause no longer is about the animals its about getting yourself noticed.
People need to get a serious reality check(PETA)
