EVEN if he was "raised" to not think it is bad.... they do it undercover for ONE REASON, because they know it is illegal.
That is where the thrill comes from. At least part of it. So, no, they were not UNAWARE of the seriousness of the charges. Unless one can be "unaware" of the seriousness of any charges, like, murder, for example.

I agree kdubbs27. They know the difference between right and wrong. Because something may be more prevalent in certain states, it does not give anyone the right to commit crimes there. Dog fighting is wrong, no matter which state it is happening in. And ignorance is no excuse for breaking the law.
If you are a dog and your owner suggests that you wear a sweater, suggest that he wear a tail.
Last winter Michael Vick tried to sneak marijuana on a plane on his water bottle. The dude isn't too bright and he doesn't appear to respect most laws.
I don't know though I think for what ever reasons people are harder on Vick than they were for Michael Jackson molesting kids. Vick is going to prison, Jackson is in another country still molesting kids.
Boxers are like cookies you can't have just one :)
I saw the show today, and was appalled at her comments. I have send an email to Bill Getty regarding her statements. I also told them that wearing white sheets and burning crosses on lawns to was a southern cultural thing, but is really not acceptable behavoir. And that Vick and his associates were fully aware that what they were doing was illegal.
He's your friend,your partner,your defender your dog.You are his life,his love,his leader. He will be yours faithful and true to the last beat of his heart.You owe it to him to worthy of such devotion
It must not be that common of a practice down there, on the News they showed an interview with an older gentleman from his family and he just kept saying it didn't sound like the little boy he has known all his life.
He just kept repeating "dog fighting" with disbelief.
How's this for rationalizing? I don't care where you are brought up, if you can sit there and not only watch, but arrange for animals rip each other to pieces, no doubt you are scum of the earth and it's a matter of time before you push the limits and end up in jail anyhow because you are missing an important emotion and judgement that makes you decent human.
I was really taken a back with the old interview they played from when he first became a big deal. The interviewer asked Vick the question; "What are three things nobody knows about Michael Vick..." and his first response, "I am an animal lover."
A drug person can learn to cope with things like seeing their dead grandmother crawling up their leg with a knife in her teeth. But no one should be asked to handle this trip.
Well, I am from the south. In a small little town full of red necks. And I couldn't even tell you where to find a dog fighting place. It is such a cop out to say that just because he is from the south, he doesn't know any better.
Just because we talk slow, doesn't mean we are slow.
Everyone has a photographic memory. Some just don't have any film.
