He has spent 23 months in prison for dogfighting, former Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick is out and will be working with The Humane Society of the US on their campaign against dogfighting. This exceptionally cruel dog murderer who originally pleaded "Not Guilty" to animal cruelty apparently showed remorse! REALLY? Remorse or sorry that he got caught? Or is he sorry that he went from revered athlete to convicted felon! I am sorry - I don't believe his remorse. Isn't it true that many serial killers start with killing animals.
I want to quote something from "Donna at BADRAP" who worked extensively with some of the rescued "Vick Dogs" and was involved with the case shortly after Vick was arrested.
"Everyone we worked with was deeply affected by the case. The details that got to me then and stay with me today involve the swimming pool that was used to kill some of the dogs. Jumper cables were clipped onto the ears of underperforming dogs, then, just like with a car, the cables were connected to the terminals of car batteries before lifting and tossing the shamed dogs into the water. Most of Vick's dogs were small - 40lbs or so - so tossing them in would've been fast and easy work for thick athlete arms. We don't know how many suffered this premeditated murder, but the damage to the pool walls tells a story. It seems that while they were scrambling to escape, they scratched and clawed at the pool liner and bit at the dented aluminum sides like a hungry dog on a tin can.
I wear some pretty thick skin during our work with dogs, but I can't shake my minds-eye image of a little black dog splashing frantically in bloody water ... screaming in pain and terror ... brown eyes saucer wide and tiny black white-toed feet clawing at anything, desperate to get ahold. This death did not come quickly. The rescuer in me keeps trying to think of a way to go back in time and somehow stop this torture and pull the little dog to safety. I think I'll be looking for ways to pull that dog out for the rest of my life."
Unfortunately this was just one of his methods of murdering his animals.
I am sickened and disappointed that the HSUS are thinking of using him, I am sorry to me its just a marketing ploy by 'Vick's people' to get him back in the NFL. For me I hope that the NFL will turn his back on him. There are so many great quarterbacks out there - I hope they don't invite him back.
