    22:54 mark of the video starts to talk about Vick's direct involvement.

    t wasn't just his property and he claimed he was unaware. That was his initial claim, however....

    A legal court document(State of Facts) accusing him of his direct involvement, and presence, of the torture and killing of 6-8 dogs via hanging, drowning, and slamming to death, he signed to be true and correct. These were the dogs that lost, not that it makes a difference. And these are the only ones and methods he admitted guilt to.

    Can you imagine, an already beat up bloodied dog that just fought trying everything in it's power to please you, only to lose, and then have it's master hang you, or slam you on hard pavement, or hold you under water until life is gone? A dog's eyes, looking at yours, with tears in his own eyes, as the last thing it see's?



    Remember these details about Michael Vick. I don't go on rants often, but seeing him on tv and get praise has never sat well with me. There's no video of what he admitted to, but there is video of Ray Rice and not to condone or downplay what Ray Rice did, but what he did in my opinion, isn't nearly as bad as what Michael Vick did. But hey, Ray Rice wasn't nearly as captivating as Michael Vick was at qb, so perhaps that is the difference.

    Being able to entertain overrides all. We have rapists, abusers, and worse in all forms of entertainment that are praised to no end with all sins forgiven.

    Should he not be able to make a living? He did more for animal rights by getting caught than anyone else ever. Before him no one had a clue how rampant dog fighting is in this country.

    I'm just stating what he is not what he's entitled too.. and saying he did more animal rights is like saying a Dopehead snitch is doing the lord's work..If you're a fan of his that's fine but the dude made plenty of money playing.. Pete Rose got blackballed from baseball and HOF and i'm surprised he didn't get the same treatment from the NFL...

    The NFL is morally bankrupt.

    i think if Vick was caught today, he'd get the same treatment.

    But I do agree with @HEATH VON DOOM@HEATH VON DOOM, that Vick can know the error of his ways and never offend again, which means he should be permitted to earn a living. The fact that he's able to do that in 'entertainment' is a reflection on us and our society. But the guy has been nothing but venial in his words and actions on the matter. So if it's possible that Michael Vick is a reformed man, it's possible that he deserves our forgiveness.

    Chances are he would still be doing it today and would have killed countless dogs if he were not caught.

    and in that alternate universe, I hope he gets caught and gang-raped in dog prison.

    But in the here and now, he was caught, paid the price, reformed, and is back to contributing to society.
    I try not to waste my emotional reservoir on things that aren't actually things.
