Michael Vick--NFL Monster

Please go to Woman Honor Thyself and read her article on NFL "super star" Michael Vick. On April 26th 2007, police raided his house where they found evidence of dog fighting. The officers took 66 dogs (numbers differ) from the property,  and  mounds of earth where dogs had been buried. At the time, Michael Vick was  the starting quarterback for the Atlanta Falcons and one of the highest paid players in the NFL (10 years = $130 million). He didn't need the money, so one is forced to ask why he would engage in such cruelty.
He served 21 months in prison, followed by two months in home confinement for his  confessed involvement in dog fighting over a five year period. Redskins Clinton Portis was quoted as saying "I don't know if he was fighting dogs or not, but it was his property. It was his dogs. If that's what he wants to do, do it. What people do behind closed doors." Oh, yes Portis also said Vick was a "positive role model". Think about it--these guys are being paid millions of dollars to chase a ball around a field.

Many people will never get over Vick's own admissions of unthinkable cruelty to his own dogs--the strangling, the drowning, the electrocutions, the removal of all the teeth of females who would fight back during mating--and don't forget, dog fights go on for hours because it is "to the death".
These are only 2 of his victims. The one on the left is Gypsy, I could not find a name for the other.  Vick did say he was sorry--yeah--sorry that he got caught. The NFL took him back and all is forgiven--because, after all, they were only dogs and he is such a great quarterback. 
 For all of you who look up to Michael Vick as an amazing football player--Please read Angel's post and tell your kids the real truth about this sick  piece of garbage.
