Man oh man, the hatred and vitriol has been spewing from Philadelphia ever since the Eagles announced they signed Michael Vick.
I was certainly upset when Vick was caught running a dog fighting ring and killing dogs. I love dogs, and I think we humans have a responsibility not to harm domesticated animals.
However, Vick did 2 years of prison, pretty much lost all of his money, and seems to have really reformed himself.
Doesn’t everyone deserve a second chance?
Donte Stallworth got drunk and killed a pedestrian… got 30 days in jail and a one year suspension from the NFL. Where was the outrage about that? Vick does 2 years for killing dogs, and Stallworth gets one month. I didn’t hear ONE person aside from myself having an issue with that…
Vick deserves his second chance. If he screws up again, then screw him.
Would you want to pay for a mistake for the rest of your life, or would you want another chance? I think you’d feel differently if it were people he killed instead of dogs… but hey, I might just be jaded.
