Oh but it's sooooo racist... Give me a freakin' break!

'Oh oh but he didnt knoooow they were doing all that stuff in his house!'

Bullshit.  :shithappens:

Vick - 'hey, what's all them crates full of dogs in the yard about?'
relative/friend - 'huh, oh, I don't see no crates... go play football or somethin'
Vick - 'hey what's all that noise, sounds like cheering people and some crazy dogs fighting...'
relative/friend - 'huh, naw man, I don't hear nothin... here's a roll of money... go play football, everything is fine here man.'
Vick - 'oh... ookay! *runs off to play football all happy leave it to beaver like*...

This is what happened right? Yup... And I'm the fucking king of spain.

"What he needs to do when he comes out is to call a press conference and explain where a young man making 130 million dollars would get caught up in something like that,” Rose said.

Fans at Playmakers Barber Shop in Midtown said they still support Vick, because they feel he is innocent, and that he is a victim of a racist judicial system.

"It's bad. I don't condone it at all, but the punishment is too severe, (they’re ruining) a man's career," said barber Dontrell Mapp.


Oh right, the poor baby... he's obviously gotten himself caught up in something he had NO control in and NO SAY in whatsoever... the poor poor baby, oh such a horrible tragedy that this obvious victim's career is now going to be in shambles due to a CHOICE he had noooo part of....

What a load of crock. Vick supporters must come as easy as Bush supporters by the handful.

Yes. yes... As part of our civil rights, we should have the right to be a bunch of abusive thugs that have no respect for living things whatsoever... OMG, what was I thinking!

Jeebus.

*Update*

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) -- Michael Vick apologized to the NFL and his Atlanta Falcons teammates Monday for "using bad judgment and making bad decisions" and vowed to redeem himself of charges in a dogfighting case.

Shortly before making his first public statements, the star quarterback pleaded guilty to a federal dogfighting charge and awaited a Dec. 10 sentencing date that likely will send him to prison.

"First I want to apologize for all the things that I've done and that I have allowed to happen," Vick said at a news conference following his appearance in U.S. District Court.

"I made a mistake in using bad judgment and making bad decisions," he said. "Dogfighting is a terrible thing."

He concluded by saying, "I offer my deepest apologies to everyone. And I will redeem myself. I have to."


Wow. he stepped up to the plate... He made bad DECISIONS, and ALLOWED things to happen... At least he's fessing up to this... GOOD.

I think I'll quote someone elses comment in response to the update...

"With all the positive changes you had the funds and visibility to make happen in the world--youth mentoring, scholarships, philanthropic endeavors, and instead you chose this inhumane, cruel and vicious industry. It defies belief how anyone can derive any measure of satisfaction from the acts you have committed. I really hope you have found Jesus. Hopefully you will have a lot of time for quality communication with him while you are in prison."

I think a lot of people are really missing the point still... it's not JUST that this guy did this terrible thing. This was not some underprivileged young man with no prospects stuck in a cycle of violence with only despair of a life filled with hardness and poverty before him... this was a young man who made millions of dollars, who had every possible opportunity, and who CHOSE despite all of that to torture and kill animals... FOR FUN. This is a man who has already earned in his short life more money than most of us will ever come close to earning in our entire lives. It makes what he's done even worse, because he HAD a choice to enrich himself and others around effortlessly. I can only hope as a best case resolution for this that he seriously changes his life. The sad thing is, he wouldn't have done if it had not been for being caught (If he wasn't able to realize "I'm doing something horrific" the first time he was involved in torturing one of those dogs, he wasn't going to stop) so quite frankly, it makes his apologys and gestures of remorse pretty meaningless.

Karma will have it's way though, so whatever happens to him and whatever choices and actions he takes, he'll be punished still further. Perhaps his next life will be a regression of incarnation and he'll be an animal or human who is used and tortured for the amusement of the morally bankrupt.

:nod:

Yeah.

I don't get that whole... 'well you all act like you're better than him, like you've never done anything wrong' blah blah blah...

Ok. That's stupid. I don't and never have run around torturing animals for fun or for profit. I don't think the person that said that gets the point... that's like saying that in defense of anyone! Child molester? PFF dont act so shocked, you're no better, its not like you've never done anything wrong before... Rapist? murderer? wife beater? Cmon... give me a fucking break... People should know better by now, people should know by now what is what... if they wanna tempt fate by "trying to get away with it", that doesnt make it ok. "Oh but I'll just say sorry and stuff"... no, sorry, no deal.

GARGH.

And then there's idiots that would say this:

"For his involvement Mr. Vick is going to serve time of up to 12-18 months, but Lindsey Lohan, Paris Hilton and many other celebreties of the caucasian race can drive drunk, admit to drug use, walk around with no under wear on, drive while holding their kids in car seats, etc.. "

Ok... strike 1 - Race card... strike 2 - I dont think those 'caucasian' celebrities ran around behaving in murderous and cruel ways just for kicks, just for fun, just for profit... unless you're telling me Paris Hilton ran around murdering kittens everyday just after getting out of bed etc. Strike 3 - this person is a MORON! ... ...

*end rant*

Thanks love, :heart:

I just hope they also make him do some community service in animal rescue, or something of the like... Perhaps that might open his glazed lil eyes some.

And of course he would say that... either by advise of his legal peeps, or to save face. Doesn't change the facts.

At least he was man enough to admit he fucked up and to admit that he allowed shit to happen without being man enough to stop it.

People... pff!

that would be a bit of over compensation too, wouldn't it?

Kinda like a priest opening a molestation prevention center or a YMCA :snicker:

This has been a very strong debate concerning race ever since they made the accusations/arrest. Regardless of what color you are, dogfighting, cockfighting, or the pitting of two animals against one another for sheer entertainment is morally and physically wrong. People argue that Boxing is no different...if dogs could talk I'm sure they wouldn't have any desire to fight one another. Humans have a choice. Dogs don't.

I can see the point people make about Vick being responsible. He's innocent of the actual fighting itself. It's not illegal to own property, it is illegal to make that property avalible for illegal purposes. It's like someone renting a house, the tenants sell drugs out of it and get busted for it, and then they (the police) turn around and arrest the landlord of the house. It sickens me to see that he knew this was going on and he was obviously ok about it. Race shouldn't even play a factor, it annoys the hell out of me that whenever a person of color gets arrested for something on this scale, the NAACP or others are quick to pull the race card. If the guy was white, I'm sure all the white people would be shouting the same thing. It's rediculous. Frankly, I hope they jerk his entire cashflow from him, and make him donate it to an animal shelter. I hope he gets community service at those same shelters to see what it's like to have to deal with that every day. And I hope he loses every single endorsement he has, and never plays football (or any other sport) again.

At any rate...if he was so innocent, and he had nothing to do with it...why did he plead guilty? The local R&B radio station here said nothing about a plea bargain, just that he pleaded guilty. The first step to proving your innocence is to plead as such, or has the justice system changed somehow?

although...

"Court documents released last week showed that two of Vick's alleged partners said he helped kill dogs that didn't fight well and that the three men "executed approximately eight dogs" in ways that included hanging and drowning."

& furthermore...

"In the court documents, Peace and Phillips said that the money behind the Bad Newz Kennels dogfighting operation came "almost exclusively" from Vick, and they told prosecutors that other accusations in the 18-page indictment are true."

Not sure which is worse... if he would've actually been involved in the fighting, or not involved in the fighting as you've said, and only in the killing of the 'weaker' dogs...

Yes, yes, and yes.

And the justice system... what a convoluted mess that has become huh?

And yeah, the whole race issue here is completely MOOT. What a load of crock...

*really sick of people like this*

Thanks for the input DB!
