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."

    SIMPLE SOLUTION... coax Gil Grissom out of retirement for the case thus insuring we will discover exactly what occurred and when.  Besides, three minutes at 60 mph could put Vick over 15,000 feet from the scene.  That's a long way even for the best of sharp shooters!
    In all seriousness, the only conclusion of certainty at this time can be Michael Vick doesn't always make the soundest of choices.  the rest should wait until after a thorough investigation by competent professionals.

You sound stupid. Just because you're on probation doesn't mean you can't have birthday party for yourself. I don't care how many mins he left before the shooting he wasn't there when it happened thats all that matters.

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 was an open party meaning anyone can go, he can't be responsible for everyone that was there. There is no evidence to this point that he had anything to do with the shooting so I can let the investigators do their thing without adding fuel to the speculation fire.

Another turn in the Vick case

You know what? I was a HUGE Michael Vick backer during the time he was getting trashed on these boards.  I said that hey, the guy committed a crime and served his time... 2 years in the penitentiary is a pretty severe penalty for hurting dogs.   And yes, I have a dog (that just cost me money at the vet dammit) and I love my dog but 2 year terms for a first conviction is a little steep.

That being said, If he was really out that late at 2am this soon after all of his troubles and if the shooting really happened minutes after he left and if the guy that was shot was involved in Vick's dog fighting operation then he should be out of the league now and forever.

Only a stupid,,,  STUPID,, MORON would put themselves in that position again.

That would be like Big Ben in Pittsburgh having bathroom sex again in the next few months....

Stupid.. flat out stupid ....

I am sure is was coincidental.  Michael Vick would never be involved in something..........after all he learned his lesson.  He must have because Roger Goodel told us that he was............what a frigging joke. Kick him out of the NFL for life.  Send a message to the rest of the league.

Wow, threaten people who, like, you know, present facts and evidence. I love how he can still stick to the script even after video evidence surfaces. Only a lawyer. Bye bye Mike Vick.

Again, with all of his money - why didn't he CATER his birthday party????

Wrong time, wrong place would not be a player if he catered it.  Why is he even at a bar that late at night?

The guy just needs to go AWAY!
