    It's bad, but people should be given a second chance, and from everything I've heard of Vick, he seems to have learned his lesson, and is becoming a good role model for kids.
    Plus, he is exciting to watch
    But isn't there some things you should not get a second chance on?

    For some things I would agree, what Vick did though. Yes, someone should get a second chance.

    There are ways of putting a pet down with the least of suffering then there were the way Vick did it including drowning. Maybe things are different in your parts but I don't find anything entertaining about drowning a dog.
    Hey listen, most guys have done something in the past of which they are ashamed. It could be anything from participation in gang fights, jumping somebody, vandalism, inflicting pain upon another living being for pleasure, wife-beating (girlfriend-beating) slapping, theft, or whatever.

    Heck! We even get brainwashed into joining the military so that we can go into someone else's land to kill all of the available folks we see. However, when you get back home, if you try to do that same crap again after you get pissed at group of drunks cursing your name from across the street, they call it mass murder. You then don't get medals for heroism. You do however, get to go to prison for life!

    So life is full of twists turns and surprises. People can be rehabilitated believe it or not. People change daily. People switch political parties. People change their minds all of the time. We can go from radicals as adolescents to ultra-conservatives at the age of forty.

    When I was an adolescent, I did some pretty stupid things. Most of the bad things that I did involved vandalism. Some of the things that I did back then makes me shiver at how blatantly stupid they were. I would never do anything like that again. There are things that I've done at 13, that you couldn't pay me to do at 18 years of age. There are things that I've done at 18, that I would absolutely refuse to do at the age of 25 years. There are things that I did at 25, that I would feel quite stupid doing at the age of 40 years.

    I've known guys who've fought dogs before. They would usually end the conversation with, "Damn man! That's too bad about Bullet. That was a really good dog, though!" Eventually, they mature and they stop fighting dogs on their own. I think Vick, just like all the rest of those fools in the NFL. He just had too much money and too much time on his hands. When you add those features to a slice of immaturity and a slice of adventurism, you've got a pretty stupid-looking sandwich.

    It's not like Vick was convicted of child abuse or child molestation or something and now he wants to start a nursery school for kids.

    He most probably really does like dogs and just wants to prove to both himself and society, that he's not the monster the press portayed him to be.

    Let the man have a dog! His dog will most probably eat better than any of us do, today!

    We don't let convicted sex offenders be in the company of children, why would we let a man convicted of what this man did EVER have another dog.....it makes zero sense.

    Absolutely...I'm all for second chances. However, it doesn't mean that he should ever be given a second chance to torture and kill like he did before. Give him a chance to get his life back...give him another shot at football....but absolutely do not ever give this man another dog.

If they did, he'd have no reason to fight dogs... he'd just abuse them fresh off the trucks (or however the dogs were transported to his property). I believe the way losing/unable dogs were dealt with were a result of what he's been shown... and rehabilitation isn't an impossible task. Surely someone in his position should understand the backlash behind his sentiments, but I believe he could curtail some of it by allowing an organization like the humane society to make random visits to ensure proper care of the animal is being met.
    Are you serious? Vick ABSOLUTELY used and abused those dogs for his own pleasure. What do you think dog fighting is about?

    Re: Vick says he would like a pet dog; anger follows

    I understand the outrage but I wonder if anyone bothered to read the article. He has done his service...he still goes above and beyond. He works with the Humane Society and does speaking engagements by choice. He acknowledges his past and the mistakes he has made. He was responding to a question...one he probably gets all too often. He felt that in addition to work that he has done a family pet would be a positive thing for him in his rehab process.

    Take him at his word or dont. Agree or disagree. But at least read and understand the context of the response.

    Nice dig at the military. Right up there with Obama's "air raiding villages and bombing civilians" comment.

    Do you even realize how many assumptions you're having to make in order to believe your ridiculous claim that Vick actually likes dogs?

    You obviously didn't READ my post. I said I don't care for cock or dog fighting. I noted that gamecocks are fighters by nature... I didn't say they put themselves in the ring.

    I just said I didn't think it should be a FELONY. Perhaps you have heard of "misdemeanors". These are also crimes...and can involve incarceration... they don't remove your civil rights forever like felonies.

    This is my point. Animals are not people. Comparing dog-fighting to child molestation is, IMO, ridiculous and shows how upside-down we are as a society.
