OUTRAGE.Vick apologists deserve condemnation!
I wasn't planning on posting any more about Vick--until maybe when he gets sentenced.But I am SO outraged at a story I read tonight at work.
The Atlanta NAACP said that Vick should be allowed back in the NFL after he does his time. They feel his co-defendants were COERCED into ratting on him. They feel, therefore they think its fact. The FACT is that it is common in any case when multiple criminals are involved to tell them that if they cooperate and name the bigger fish (like the bank roller and owner of property) that they will get lighter punishment. THAT is the legal system.
They also went on about how everyone deserves a second chance and that people reacted worse over dogs than if he had KILLED someone. Trying to change the subject and compare apples to oranges.
I am so sick when the subject is CHANGED and taken away from the brutality of what he was involved in and the fact that it was a FELONY!
But think of Don Imus. He uttered three words that offended, and rightly so. Did the NAACP say that HE learned his lesson and HE deserved a second chance? NO. He got banned. He lost his show, his job, his income and support for his ranch for kids with cancer.
Look what happened to Bill Mahr too. He said the 911 terrorists weren't cowards and lost his show in the uproar. HE didn't say they were HEROES, he simply pointed out that their act might have been crazy and deranged, but it wasn't cowardly.
Yet VICK, who is a felon, tortured dogs, committed vile acts and was involved in dogfighting is treated like he was some poor VICTIM?
I urge you all to write to the NFL, Falcons and anyone else you can think of and share your outrage over the NAACPs double standard.
There, I vented and I feel somewhat better. But we animal lovers can't let the subject be changed from what it should be: the exploitation, abuse and torture of innocent creatures for perverts who get pleasure out of pain.
Vick deserves NO sympathy from anyone, PERIOD. I am posting again the photo of one of Vick's victims. A real VICTIM, not a spoiled, depraved millionaire who should never play football again.
