Michael Vick Should Be Banned For Life

Very fast and elusive, but mediocre quarterback, Michael Vick has been indicted for running a dog-fighting pit out of his property in Virginia. -Vick signed a $100 million contract with the NFL and makes tens of millions of dollars with various endorsement endeavors.

ABC News) Atlanta Falcons star quarterback Michael Vick has been indicted by a federal grand jury for allegedly participating in a dogfighting ring.

The indictment, filed in Richmond, Va., Tuesday afternoon, alleges Vick and three other defendants violated federal laws barring competitive dogfighting, and obtained and trained pit bulls for the purpose of fighting...

Dog owners reportedly brought their animals from the Carolinas, Maryland, New York, Texas, Alabama and other states to compete in the illegal matches. The owner of the winning dog would receive a cash prize. Those purses ranged from hundreds to thousands of dollars. Spectators and other dog owners were also allowed to bet on the fights.

But the dogs involved did not receive prize fighter treatment. Prosecutors alleged that the losing dogs were sometimes executed -- drowned, hanged, shot or electrocuted.

I love dogs, and for the most part, I hate people. So, when I hear about super-rich athletes fighting, and then killing dogs just for the fun of it, I get very upset. Especially, when it happens to be Vick because he has always rubbed me the wrong way. His face alone, is enough to get me to shake my head. He is inconsiderate; he’s ungrateful; and he’s a wanna-be thug wasting God-given talent because he’s more interested in the “niggah” lifestyle.

I hope he gets convicted and sent to prison so he can have some time to figure out that karma is a bitch. And the NFL has no choice, if the allegations pan out, but to ban Vick from the NFL for life.
