Please, your point is well taken about the meat industry but do you have to make Vick out to be a victim of the justice system? He has absolutely no remorse for his behavior, he's only sorry he was caught. He'd still be doing it if it hadn't ALMOST cost him his career. 2 wrongs do not make a right. All innocent and helpless animals need to be protected. The answer is educating people about the facts of animal cruelty in and out of the meat industry, not vindication for Vick.

Have you seen any interview with Vick? He's gone from an arrogant, ghetto, disrespectful pissant to a humble, respectful, appreciative, and even thoughtful man. He deserves a second chance. He, at least, served his time.

It's sick to me that some of you would defend Roman Polansky, and then heap such hatred on Vick. Maybe if Vick had fled to France would it all be OK. Or maybe shown no remorse for his crime. I dunno. It's good to see in some circles child rape is forgivable, and dog fighting is not.

Oh BS! People judge other people all the time. You are judging people that eat meat and condemn Vick.

Why don't you just break out some classics about people without sin or living in glass houses throwing stones?

And I hate to be the one to break it to you but there is a huge difference between meat industry supplying food and fighting and torturing dogs for amusement.

Food is good. Meat is good. PETA sucks.
Careful, or you might also get skewered.

D. Sweeney says:
What I find is sad is that it seems more people are apt to condemn (and not forgive) someone like Vick for abusing animals than they would had he beaten his wife or girlfriend...And as far as the hypocrisy, it seems just a tiny bit hypocritical to judge all the terrible "Meat Eaters" by implying that eating meat is an indicator that a person supports animal abuse. Now, I have seen those under cover videos of people kicking chickens or throwing them around while they're still alive and agree that it really isn't correct behavior by these individuals. And they're just that, INDIVIDUALS. Meat companies don't want a bunch of foolishness like this; it cuts down on production. However, I don't believe that killing an animal for food consumption is in any way wrong or abusive - I wouldn't prolong an animal's suffering for my own or anyone else's pleasure, but I don't have any qualms about the reasonably efficient slaughter of cows, pigs, etc. It's not pretty, but it's life.

Mike Vick is a sick, sick, individual. He didn't make "A mistake" as he put it. For YEARS he systematically set up the dog fighting ring at a house he purchased in the country for the express purpose of being hidden from public view.

Over a period of years, he tortured, electrocuted, smashed, hung, and drowned animals that didn't perform to his expectations.

What he set up was a mini-Aushwitz for dogs. A guy like this doesn't feel remorse. Everything he says in public is just for public relations purposes. Most serial killers started out by killing animals, then worked their way up to humans.

This man should not be representing the NFL, he's human garbage, and not a very good QB at that.

No I'm not a vegan, but a lacto-ovo vegetarian. I eat animal products, but not any that died to provide the food. However, I do have some leather shoes, but don't lump me into the same category as Michael Vick.
