Innocent until proven guilty doesn't work here. Vick has gotten out of drug and weapons charges due to his fame, and it is time it stopped. He should be charged and jailed for all of it, but that would only happen in a near-perfect society, not ours.
He's scum, simply put, and doesn't deserve more than a 'fair' trial.
I express myself through body modification and loud opinions. Please step aside.
The laws are made to protect the crooks, and no goods of our society. Thats the sad part. They get by with just about anything. One thing is for sure in the end they will get theirs. Justice will reign in the end. I hope they get all thats coming to them.
This is the indictment presented to the Grand Jury. It's apparent it's enough to file charges. I love the last page, page 18, that states he is proven guilty and that he will loose all the possessons acquired through dog fighting. That would be his house, contents, cars, and all his bling. But it's 18 pages of horrific allegations.
When my 12 year old son heard about this, HE threw away all his Vick stuff - his jersey and football. I happily replaced them with Peyton Manning, his new favorite. What kind of career is this guy going to have now when 12 year olds, who used to idolize him, don't even like him anymore?
I was disgusted with this guy. I didn't think his punishment sounded that great. Only a year of jail I read. They said something about a 100 million dollar fine though.. I thought that sounded a little better. I'll try to sign the petition but i'm not sure if my computer will let me.

I signed the petition several days ago as well. Sadly this is an all too common in the dog fighting & Greyhound racing industry...starve, drown, shoot, hang etc. There is a special place in Hell for these scum bags!
Can't stand the heat?.....Don't tickle the Dragon!
There is no excuse for treating a living creature like that, as humans we should be more evolved at this point. I have been and will continue to protest anything that he endorses or is part of. If one of those starving pit bulls would have gotten out on the street, it would have killed a person. As far as I'm concerned, he is a MURDERER!
Dogfighting is pretty disgusting and it's even more disgusting that these dogs would still be looking at Vick with those puppy dog eyes and he still is able to torture them to death. I say no to my dog and then she looks at me with her sweet eyes and I give in. My brother and his wife went to the Phillipines and saw dogfighting there and said that it was kind of cool. Their excuse was that they need it to make money. At that moment, I wrote them off. We have enough humans fighting and killing each other and it's been claimed that we differ from the animal world by our ability to rationalize and make choices; we don't need to see dogs do it to each other. But only a dog will take a whack from a human and still love them unconditionally. Vick may be innocent until proven guilty and I suppose this whole thing will turn out to be another O.J. thing where he becomes so desperate that he plays the race card, but dogfighting, in and of itself is wrong. Well all I can say is what goes around comes around. If he is proven guilty, I hope he loses all he treasures, most of all his money and fame. I'm not trying to sound vindictive but sometimes it takes losing what you love to understand how much of an a** you are...
Unfortunately, (or should I say...fortunately) the Feds on this case have a conviction record of 100% for these types of cases....sooooooooo, I'm thinking they've got something pretty solid on him or they wouldn't have made their move yet.
