Prosecuting Michael Vick For Dog Fighting, Thank The Federal Prosecutors

Sep 6, 2007
It is no longer a secret that Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick is facing some serious trouble for his role in a dog fighting ring at one of his houses. Also, being connected to dog breeding are likely of very little concern to the Atlanta Falcons.

In fact, when asked about the report that fighting dogs were found on one of Vick's homes, Falcons coach Bobby Petrino only commented about his quarterback's off-season workout regimen. There are many issues involved with dog fighting, and most fans are curious about what the law says about it and exactly what kind of trouble Vick faces.

This is not to make light of a reckless situation, if Vick is indeed found to be involved, but at this point, there's very little evidence that he has any knowledge of this situation. Petrino and the Falcons, though, do need to remain squarely focused on improving the performance of Vick. The athletic quarterback is light years away from living up to expectations that had him doing everything short of donning a cape and flying 100 yards into the end zone every Sunday, when Vick entered the NFL as the first player taken in 2001.

With all that happened in the past few months Michael Vick has pleaded guilty to federal dog fighting charges. What drove this leading NFL quarterbacks to engage in illegal behavior- dog fighting- is beyond the comprehension of most people in the US. What's even more horrific is that he (and others) tortured the "underachieving" (meaning less than super aggressive) dogs to death via drowning, beating and electrocution.

Just the thought of it makes me shudder in disbelief that Vick was revered as a star athlete. Now the NFL has banned him. The Atlanta Falcons and Nike are suing him for the money paid in advance for endorsements and signing with the team. Plus he has only one year to serve in federal prison. While Vick states below that he will redeem himself, it sounds like way too little and way too late.

Now the Humane Society of the United States is thanking the federal prosecutors for their magnificent job, if you agree that these prosecutors did a magnificent job and wish to thank them, you can! You can act in concert with the Humane Society of the United States an online thank you note to these prosecutors through the Humane Society thank you note.

Join countless people in sending a note of appreciation to the prosecutors and let us help the Humane Society of the United States eliminate dog fighting here in the US!!
