Another turn in the Vick case

Posted on: June 29, 2010 10:09 pm
 
The news continues to be not-so-good for Eagles QB Michael Vick. Remember how Vick apparently had left the restaurant where his birthday party was held long before one of his former dog-fighting associates was shot last week?

Well, it might not have happened exactly like that.

According to the Hampton Roads Daily Press , Vick’s entourage left the Guadalajara restaurant at 2:07 a.m., three minutes before gunshots rang out. This, according to the surveillance video the restaurant turned over to police Tuesday.

Vick attorney, Larry Woodward, did not sound pleased with the apparent confliction of the video and what he had claimed earlier.

"I stand by what I said, that Michael was long gone before the shooting, does not know who did the shooting and had nothing to do with the shooting," Woodward told the newspaper. "Anyone who says any different better be very careful."

Another turn in the Vick case

Not A Vick fan but cmon now, he should never leave his house? It was his Birthday party! I'm sure he is allowed to go just like any of us would have. It
I know what you're trying to say, but no he can't.  He doesn't have the right to do what we do and never will.

That would be like saying Michael Vick should be able to roam the streets and not be bothered.  That would be like saying the paparazzi shouldn't bother celebrities and they should have the freedom you and I have.  SHOULD it  be that way technically? Yeah, ok.  But realistically it will never be that way...

What Vick does have the right to do though is make millions of dollars to potentially be sitting on a bench once a week with a headset on and a playbook in his hand....  you and I don't have that right, do we?

He's out on parole and almost lost his entire life, all his money, his reputation and everything else that goes along with it.

He got a second chance to play in the NFL and not just at minimum wage either.. for millions.   He also got to keep a huge house, a car and some money as well.....  most of us get drained in a bankruptcy and can't negotiate with top notch lawyers like he could...

So yes, he has plenty of advantages you and I will never have and the same works the other way... he'll never have the privacy..... that's just how it is.

Have a catered bday party AT HOME..... it can be really nice... some good music.... entertainment.... whatever... but no bars at 2am.. sorry

You are what is wrong with everything in this country
Fortunately I don't live in your country.  And second of all, since you believe that a person in a chat room blogging about a sports athlete is solely responsible for everything that's wrong in YOUR country then you sir are the moron.... nobody else.

absurd post  the article clearly states 3 minutes BEFORE the gunsgots were heard.  Now as you say he possibly coulve been a mile or two away OR he couldve been getting into an argument and in the middle of this gunshot mess and THEN drove away.  Your making a lot of positives assumptions about a guy that clearly isnt deserving of the benefit of the doubt at this point.

Three minutes ? This is after the gunshots ? Was that 3 minutes before leaving the table he was sitting at or the valet area where he would've gotten into the car to drive away ? And that's assuming the restaurant had valet and he and his entourage didn't go into a parking lot ? But I would figure Vick pays someone to fetch his car ? Regardless, if Vick is gone for 3 minutes, let's say he does a posted speed limit of 35 mph, in 3 minutes he's 1.75 miles away. Can you even see the restaurant or car from either 17 1/2 blocks away ? And in that case, 3 minutes, 10 minutes, what's the difference, he got far enough away from the problem ?

If he is found to be lying or even worse, do people listen to Tony Dungy the next time he speaks up for some other thug and their hard luck story?
