    There is a big difference between a fighting dog and a pet. Some of these guys probably don't make a distinction but I would be willing to some do. Some in their own twisted way I am sure love their dogs. They put them in there to win not to die. And I am sure there are a lot of twisted, cruel people fighting dogs that are sociopaths. Vick impresses me as someone who can make the distinction and be a pet owner. I could be wrong. Just my opinion.

    So Jet. Then, apparently, you eat dog?

    Yuck.

    I would imagine that most of the breeds of dogs we have today are the result of similar practices. If Vick has a "serious character flaw" it's that he was doing something he knew was socially unacceptable/reprehensible. People have been killing unwanted animals and even their own babies for 1000's of years.

    people get their panties in a wad because some guy kills a few dogs, but fully support a woman's choice to kill her own baby/fetus

    Kelzie, we all do dumb things whether we're young or not. Most of us have demonstrated some form of cruelty to another sentient being before, be it human or not. Most of us could barely escape a day without doing at least one dumb thing.

    Sometimes, we actually plan to do something stupid. This is especially possible when you're in a group. Your boundaries of surreal stupidity suddenly expand when you're in a wealthy group where disposable income is practically insurmountable. All members of the group have been completely desensitized to pain, empathy, sympathy, regret, or any of those apparently alien concepts. Why? Because you're a football player! You're a gladiator! You're a warrior who has been trained to destroy, maim, injure, devastate, and defeat your oppenent by any means necessary and is legal. Legal means, you don't get caught! How many years did Vick hear the words destroy, defeat, kill, hurt, or even the word "murder". Since junior high school these words were the theme of each day.
    These words, no doubt, had some psychological impact upon Vick, as well as the sport itself. A sport based upon violence and the lack of empathy.

    I'm not certain that Vick wasn't unduly exposed to this sickness many years ago. The same type of sickness that helped to make him a success both in high school and the NFL. Vick saw himself as a warrior! Aggression and violence were integral components of his character.

    He just went a bit too far!

    PS.

    Then again, what about wealthy hunters who kill for sport?

    They're certainly not killing for food!

    Do they deserve felonious records, prison time, and eternal negative stigmas attached to their names, as well?

    So what did you do, break out the calculator and extrapolate on a graph?

    Point is, you don't know how many! So don't speculate or extrapolate, it just becomes numerical conjecture...
