    They are racists. They just hate him because he is black.

    3. Vick's victims were 100% innocent. Yes, they were dogs, but 100% innocent just the same.
    4. Stallworth's victim ran into the street and in front of Stallworth's car to catch a bus. People who run into the street are generally seen as contributing to their injuries, regardless of whether the person who hit them is drunk (i.e. if he was not in the street he would not have gotten hit).

    To make your silly comparison work Donte would have had to string an innocent person up and electrocute him, then get a 30-day sentence. Do you imagine he would get 30 days or do you think his sentence would have been worse than Vick's? Thanks for playing.

    I don't care. Stallworth ran over guy while drunk, and killed him. He got 30 DAYS IN JAIL. Michael Vick killed pit bulls and got a year in jail. I'm not condoning dog fighting, I'm just saying how can we value a dog's life over that of a human being. Thousands of people die every year due to DUI related incidents but I don't see the same type of public backlash against Stallworth or Jim Leyritz or the thousands of people who kill every year by driving drunk that Vick has been getting. CA is finally getting it right by charging the clown who killed Nick Adenhart (22 year old Angels pitcher killed in April) with first-degree murder and the possibility of life in jail. I understand they are two different sets of circumstances, but how you can say killing dogs is worse than driving drunk and killing a man because the guy was running to get a bus is beyond me. What kind of sick human being (or PETA member) are you????? I'm sorry buddy, but killing a person is worse than killing a dog in this country. So, enjoy you're little PETA-educated, nonsense filled world, while I live in sane-ville. Thanks for playing!!!!!

    Which I explained. Not sure what's so complicated about it. The law, quite rightly, recognizes both intentionality and the actions of the victim when determining charges and punishment. Had Stallworth gotten drunk, then aimed his vehicle at the guy standing on the sidewalk, run him down, then flee, he would not have gotten 30 days. He'd be in jail for a long time.

    Michael Vick killed pit bulls and got a year in jail. I'm not condoning dog fighting, I'm just saying how can we value a dog's life over that of a human being.
    That's what you have wrong. We don't. Not even close. Had Stallworth done the EXACT SAME THING that Vick did with a person he'd be in jail for life. So you are as factually wrong as is possible here. Unless you would like to argue that stringing a person up and killing him would lead to a lesser sentence than doing it to a dog, you need to think about deleting your post so you don't sound so stupid. Or, in the alternative, maybe you could show how getting drunk and running over a dog would lead to 30 days. You really make this too easy.

    CA is finally getting it right by charging the clown who killed Nick Adenhart (22 year old Angels pitcher killed in April) with first-degree murder and the possibility of life in jail.

    I didn't say anything about "which is worse". You invented that position out of thin air. I was merely making a factual statement regarding how the law treats the actions of defendants and pointing out, quite correctly, that the two incidents are not related in any way and making the comparison is logically stupid. Which I'm learning is your M.O.

    What kind of sick human being (or PETA member) are you????? I'm sorry buddy, but killing a person is worse than killing a dog in this country.
    We already went over that.

    So, enjoy you're little PETA-educated, nonsense filled world, while I live in sane-ville. Thanks for playing!!!!!
    And totally pwning you.... Like fish in a barrel.

    Sorry for the typo, didn't think that it would make you unable to understand what I was talking about. Let's test your integrity now that we know your reading comprehension is apparently zero.

    Are you going to boycott the Cleveland Browns?

    We already went over that.

    And getting totally pwned....
    Ok I understand the law is different for DUI and animal cruelty cases, I'm saying that DUI murder/manslaughter should carry a much much more severe penalty than animal cruelty cases. Yes, stringing up people and electrocuting them would get you at least life in prison. But aside from Jeffrey Dahmer, not sure too many people in this country are doing that. According to MADD, 18,000 people died in alcohol realted auto-accidents in 2008. And, since alcohol inhibits judgement, if somebody were to argue intentionality of action about someone under the influence of alcohol, a good defense could have a field day making an argument about inability to make sound judgement while under the influence. It shouldn't matter if you aimed at a person or not, if you kill someone while driving under the influence you should get a hell of a lot more than 30 days in jail. So please, don't lecture me or make condescending remarks about how I don't know that the situations are different and the law says blah blah....because the comparison is not "logically stupid"(what?? ok oxyMORON), it actually makes quite a bit of sense if you actually paid attention to what I'm saying instead of trying to pick about my argument with irrelevant points. I'm sorry, who got pwned????
