Michael Vick Then and Now.

Anyone not living in a cave 2007/2008 will remember the story of Michael Vick. Many people have said that he has paid his debt to society and should be allowed to move on. Well for those individuals I will say this, in my book, paying a debt to society, means a lot more than sitting on your ass in jail crying the blues to any fellow inmate that will listen. Lets keep in mind, to most of the prison population he is a sports hero, so I don’t imagine that life was all that hard for dear Mr. Vick, but that’s just my opinion. As I understand the facts, Vick was convicted of, and did time for, federal charges of bankrolling a dog fighting operation. Later, in the fall of 2008, he pled guilty to one count of dog fighting which made him eligible for a reduced jail sentence. He has never pled guilty to charges of animal abuse and has never served time for cruelty to or killing animals. Thanks (Pitbulls are not bad dogs the just have bad owners 2) for the info, anyone should feel free to correct me if I am wrong. Now lets review shall we, he got caught, was charged, did not own up to all he had done, instead opted for a plea agreement, which got him reduced time, well that sure sounds like paying a debt to me! How about you? How soon we forget! here is a charming photo of the boy wonder himself. 

 In happier times I’m sure. Back when he was making big bucks off hurling a pig skin and off the blood, sweat, torture, abuse, and death of this noble breed. So still think he’s a “Hero?” Here are some images of the destruction he left in the wake of his quest for even more cash, like he didn’t get enough from being a “Sports Hero!” I will add that these images (some) not all are Michael Vick dogs the point is to show the results of dog fighting, and baiting, however if we dug deep enough on his case this is the type of thing you would find, I’m sure. (again just an opinion).

 Do you think a hero does that? I don’t! This (Ahem!) man was making millions! Being a member of the NFL is a privilege not a right! He should have been refused the right to return, and the same should go for any sports figure that breaks the law! Privilege revoked! Some have been charged with violent acts, drugs, gang affiliations etc., I repeat they should never have been allowed to return! But they did! and Why? For the simple reason that they represent millions to very influential people. The same people that bankroll his sports career, his “Project” and Pros VS Joes I’m sure, once again for legalities, (just an opinion) The average working man in a blue-collar job, if caught in an indiscretion, *sometimes there are even behavioral clauses in their employment agreements* will be fired. An yet he this “Hero” to some was not!  Below you will see a photo of a Pitbull, this is how a pitbull is supposed to look:

Happy, as if they are smiling, head up, tail wagging, secure! not crouched down, belly on the floor, tail tucked in with a look on their faces like they are about to be slapped! BET and SPIKE networks should both be ashamed of themselves! To give any credence to him as a “great athlete” or a hero to many (including children), disgusts me to the point of literally feeling sick! No one is saying he should not be allowed to move on with this life, what I am saying is why was he allowed to simply pick up where he left off? This turd crawled his way out of obscurity, to stardom, only to piss in the faces of the people who gave him the chances and the opportunity for something more, and yet here he is forgiven, on “The Michael Vick Project” talking as though he had read a script, not from the heart, not meaning one single solitary word, He is not sorry, he is only sorry he got caught! Then we go to “Pro’s VS Joes” where he acts like a king among men, for all those adoring fans! (Barf). Is abuse, torture and the murder of innocent life, all of a sudden OK because it is a dog? Obviously it isn’t! Do dogs not have the capacity to feel pain? obviously they do! One cannot distance themselves by saying “They” had no idea or control over what was going on there. Please! If anyone believes that, than you are truly living in the dark, why not move to a cave and call it a day. I realize you may think I have strong opinions on this, I do, not doubt! Michael Vick and every filthy low life, cowardly dog fighter out there, are the main reasons why these dogs have become loathed and feared, instead of embraced and loved! A man that wants to feel  “Macho” should do this, Not this,  I am now, and always will be a stead fast supporter of this breed, and someone striving to get them back to being an icon for loyalty and bravery! If you take anything away from this article, take this…, Educate yourself, read all you can on the breed and decide for yourself before you agree to BSL, stand up and be counted ask for the right laws, just laws, laws that are fair not discriminatory, or ones that basically support canine genocide. Thank you for listening.

About apitome

I am a mother, a pit bull advocate, but mostly I am just like any of you, I am passionate about politics, the environment and dog advocacy. I want possitive changes within the judicial system as well. I want my children to grow up in a country where we are not told what breed of dog we can own. I want to see BSL put in the trash where it belongs! I want to see the constitution protected but not manipulated *see anything on the mosque near ground zero (USA) or changing Merry Christmas to Happy Holidays (Canada)* I am not racist in any way shape or form against any ethnic group, I do however have prejudices against bad behavior! If you abuse our laws, kids, the elderly, or animals, If you move to a new country and then demand that country to change everything about it's laws & way of life to suit your own agenda, If you blatantly break those laws with no regard and show no repect for them, if you engage in dog fighting or any other forms of animal abuse, torture or neglect, or if you are a pedophile, Than yes! You are on my radar for sure, and I will do EVERYTHING within my power to see you stopped and brought to justice! Furthering that goal, I have no qualms about publishing the names and faces of convicted abusers. I am not trying to change the world, I simply want to see things improve not backslide, Mostly for my children and these wonderful dogs futures! I may say things you agree with, and I may say things that you won't agree with, I may anger you, challenge you, or just plain piss you off, but in my book that's ok as long as long as it inspires some form of action on your part. This is not a popularity contest, If I have said anything about a group or person that you don't agree with please feel free to leave a comment or simply don't come back. If You have been mentioned in my blog it is for one of two reasons, you are either an advocate or you are an abuser loser, if you are the latter I could care less what you think! I value the opinions of trash about as much as I do that of a slug! Everything in print here is a matter of public record, or came from a trusted source, with that said, I am certainly willing to print both sides of any story, in an effort to be fair and always print the truth!
