I discarded my vote because any time served in prison is dangerous. While I am disappointed with Michael Vick's choice of so-called friends, he still is responsible for his actions. However, I take no pleasure in another man's downfall. All of us, at one time or another have made a bad choice in life. If you have not then may GOD continue to bless you.

    This is not a state case its Federal. Im not trying to condone what has happened here but I highly

    doubt Mike himself is the one that put the dogs to rest. He is the ring leader for most of this would

    not be possible without his finances but he is not a monster. When dogs fight they sustain injuries

    that make the quality of life miserable, similar to when a horse breaks his leg and they shoot him

    with no problem and justify it by saying he is better off dead. The dogs that were put to rest was done

    in a similar fashion. Its not like he is breeding dogs just to find ways to kill them off. Dog fighting has

    been around for years people and on top of that if you pay attention most if not all of the dogs involved

    were Pitt Bulls, the most hated dogs by most of society. These dogs are killers by nature so dont

    hang the man. Most people could care less about a damn Pitt Bull, we have alot more important issues

    He DID kill dogs himself -- hanging them and drowning them.  It's in the court papers, which are available online:

    http://www.thesmokinggun.com/archive/years/2007/0817071vick1.html

    It has been going on for at least 6 years.  They found over 50 pit bulls on his property.

    This guy is not what you think.  He's involved in the worst kind of animal cruelty, and I do not think he will get off lightly, especially after the public is made aware of everything in more detail.

    It is important to be sure that people are given a fair shake, especially in light of today's mainstream media, which is more interested in destroying lives for ratings than honest reporting.  However, when it comes to light that the person being investigated is truly doing evil things, like Vick apparently is, it is equally important to be intellectually honest and say call a monster a monster, even if you previously thought highly of him or enjoy watching him throw a football.

    The dogs he personally killed were not like a horse that needs to be put down.  They were killed because they did not fight well enough for him.  That is evil.

      His actions speaks louder than words!! 

      This is from Fox Sports on MSN.

      As part of the plea agreements, Phillips and Peace signed statements that said Vick joined in executing at least eight dogs that didn't do well in test fights by various methods, including hanging and drowning.

      "Peace, Phillips and Vick executed approximately 8 dogs that did not perform well in 'testing' sessions at 1915 Moonlight Road by various methods, including hanging and drowning. All three participated in executing the dogs. Peace agrees and stipulates that these dogs all died as a result of the collective efforts of Peace, Phillips and Vick," Peace's statement said.

      Vick also posed for a photo with three co-defendants and a pit bull they were about to sponsor in a dogfight in North Carolina four years ago, according to Peace's statement of facts.

       

       

       

      This is after the FEDS are finished with him.

       

      Michael Vick's legal problems won't end with the federal case being brought against him.

       

      Virginia Commonwealth Attorney Gerald Poindexter said Friday afternoon that the state intended to pursue a case against Vick and others on possible animal cruelty and dogfighting charges.

      "Yes, indeed, we will prosecute," Poindexter told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution on Friday.

      Poindexter said he was likely to submit his case to the grand jury that is scheduled to convene September 25, the newspaper reported.

      Poindexter admitted that he did not yet know what charges he would bring, but he did say he would use evidence gathered and testimony given during the federal case to help support his prosecution effort.

      "The execution of these animals — and the manner in which they were executed — is startlingly offensive and demanding of prosecution," Poindexter said, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

      In Virginia, animal cruelty charges hold penalties of up to five years in jail for each animal killed

          There is way too much evidence for him to be acquitted, but I believe he will get a light sentence.  I just hope people realize this case isn't about football, and it isn't about race and it isn't about money.  The victims here are the helpless animals who were drowned, electrocuted and hanged by a sadistic person who turned cruelty into a profitable business.  He's a successful athlete who lives in a mansion.  So this was about power and greed, and our society has got to take a stand and remember what Ghandi said:

          The greatness of a nation can be judged by the way its animals are treated.

          You hit the nail right on the head!

              due to him being as huge a star as he is in football and him having money i say he gets a light sentence,hefty fines and suspension from pro football for one year.after this one year the falcons will have already dropped him.look for mike vick to play in 2008 for either of these teams below......

              1-detroit lions

              2-tampa bay bucs

              3-jacksonville jags

              tho the lions can be a pathetic bunch on the field, they do not usually sign people with character issues.....and Vick has sone serious ones.

              Vick make cop a plea...but I really don't think he is going to get off too lightly....everyone is watching this case and will jump all over ther legal system if they go too easy. I really believe his troubles are just starting, and as far as football... I think he is toast!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

                  Vick will be back!  Why?  He sells tickets....period!!

                  Personnally I think he's a creep...always have. Especially after he defended his brother during his troubles while in college!

                  Arthur Blank was duped?  No, men like Blank are blinded by the money.

                    I feel personally that he should have to do some time maybe not much but when these athletes get in the public eye, they need to leave all of that "garbage" behind.  His mother or dad should have whipped his ass one more time.  They need to learn "how to act"..It is sad to say, but it is the truth.

                      If you want a little more info on the sub-human sub culture called dogfighting, there is a good story on Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel on HBO.

                              I was going to ask Todd to add an emoticon with an "I disagree" sign  but I suppose this will do.  LOL

                              No No

                              Ms Pat, Michael Vick is not the "sacrificial lamb" in this case.  Sure, sometime people are scapegoats, but he committed a crime and should pay for it.  This so-called "sport" has been investigated for many years and law enforcement raids are common.  Miami-Dade County got so frustrated that it banned owning pit bulls, even by responsible pet owners, because of all the illegal activities. Perhaps the reason you feel this way is that dogfighting has only recently been brought to your attention by all the attention this case has brought to the public eye.

                              Dogfighting is ILLEGAL and in most states is a FELONY.  I don't know how anyone can say that, just because he is a sports figure, he is being singled out as a poster child.  That is like saying that Mel Gibson and Paris Hilton, who were both caught driving drunk, were prosecuted only because of their fame.  Maybe it's about time that rich, famous people stop getting their hands slapped when they commit crimes that most of us would get arrested and convicted for, because we can't afford the best attorneys or play football. 

                              The only "good" that is coming from this situation is that people who were otherwise unaware of this terrible form of animal cruelty, are better informed.
