That is the headline for an article I just came across. Here is an a bit of it:

Michael Vick can't ever own another dog, banned by the judge who sentenced him on dogfighting charges. But as Vick continues his redemption tour, turning public sentiment back on his side while leading the Eagles toward the playoffs and garnering MVP talk, he says he misses being a dog owner.

"I would love to get another dog in the future," he said in an interview. "I think it would be a big step for me in the rehabilitation process. I think just to have a pet in my household and to show people that I genuinely care, and my love, and my passion for animals."


Give me a break!!! I just can't stand this guy and had to share, just made me so mad to read!!!! :angry: Thank goodness he isn't actually allowed to own a dog again!!!

He has also said he would still be involved in dog fighting if he hadnt been caught. I cant believe anyone can support such a cruel, selfish, horrible human being. I do NOT care how well he can throw a ball. His punishment did NOT fit the crime and now people act like he deserves a second chance!!!!!!! Someone actually had the nerve to say that to me. :angry: So I sent him a video of what these dogs go through. I received an email shortly after stating he had no idea what was really involved in what Vick was doing and that he was so sorry. Maybe thats what people who support this piece of :poo: should have to watch.

I think the thing that really gets me about the Michael Vick thing is that all the sports writers - I've read some articles from ESPN and Sports Illustrated - keep saying it's time we forgive Vick because he's served his time and spends time advocating for dogs now however I think this is really about Vick getting hot in football again and publications wanting to be able to cover and celebrate his football accomplishments, without guilt.

That said, I am happy to see all of the time, attention, and money pit bull and other animal groups are getting as a result of Vick's heinous acts. Like everyone else, I just wish all those dogs didn't have to be tortured and died for that to happen.

If anyone has ever read what exactly happened during his dog fighting days, how cruel and disgusting this man really is they should assume it speaks volumes about him as a person in general. To me its terrifying to know a person is capible of such cruelty. I shared this article with everyone on EBN back in June when it came out, the first part made me cry my eyes out but it really is a good article. I can't see why even people that aren't concerned with animal rights don't DEMAND higher sentences for people guilty of animal cruelty crimes, this kind of behavior should be a cause for concern for EVERYONE!!!!!!

People are trying to get strict animal rights laws passed. I dont live in OH, but you better believe I have emailed (5 times) and called (6 times) their law makers to support Nitro's Law.
