Unbelievable,REGARDLESS of what he did to any dogs he's a human being.We take away 2 years of his life(actually ruin it I'm sure)for crimes aganst dogs? That's crazy. Remember when Bobby Grundy murdered Mike Smith here in Decatur? There were at least 4 witnesses. I think he did 6or8 years in state prison. For KILLING a human being. Barry will you explain this to us-please?
Barry, I respectfully would like to know your reasoning. At time of the offense dog fighting was outlawed in 49 states, and after, Louisiana joined as the 50th. Dog fighting is big business. Dog fighting is especially terrible as those monsters look for stray dogs, cut their ears and tails off and use them for practice fights. This is a horrible practice and someone has to protect our defenseless friends, these dogs who love us and overlook all our flaws when we befriend them.If evading arrest carries a maximum offense of 24 months, then 23 months months for practice of illegal gambling, slaughtering and torturing animals pales in comparison.
Sorry. I meant it should have been a State prosecution instead of a Federal prosecution. (And to confuse matters, the State has a case pending against Vick, too.) The Federal Government shouldn't be in the business of prosecuting crimes which have historically been handled by the State DA.
But how many months will he actually serve?
Perhaps the professional athletes (maybe even including big time college athletes) have dug their own hole on stuff like this. They have historically received easier treatment in the courts over their crimes because of1. the large amounts of money they have,2. the large amounts of money they can earn for their team owners and sponsors, and3. their celebrity status.It's just a guess on my part, but I hear alot about guys getting arrested engaging in various types of criminal behavior from driving while intoxicated to shooting a gun in a strip club to actually killing or injuring another human being.Maybe this Judge felt that Vick needed to be an example for others who take obeying the law and living free in decent society lightly.Just something to think about as one point of view.
They should have tacked on "and build Wise County a dog pound" while they were at it.
Oh Barry, c'mon. It's a high-profile case with near-perfect evidence, with a "sympathetic victims" aspect to it. The prosecutor comes out looking like Superman conquering the villain.They found the "interstate commerce" angle to justify the federal prosecution. Funny how prosecutors can choose to prosecute whatever they want to achieve their own goals (see "Ronnie Earle.")
Maybe he should have had an abortion, Then he would not be in trouble at all!
How can anything our government legal system does amaze you? For over 30 years that government has legalized, authorized, and susidized the genocide of thousands of innocent lives a year in the name of "choice", allows a death penalty in the name of "justice", yet agressively prosecutes offenders of animal "rights". The beginning of the end for all great societies has been when the obscene became what that society accepted and even expected.
Vick doesn't deserve all this attention despite the horrible things he did. Let him rot for the full sentence.
