@kate169:  The two discussions are not necessarily related and if you look back at all the other times this has been discussed the threads always try to link other crimes to this one to show how we shouldn’t care.  The point of this threat IMO is to show what abuse did to this one puppy.  Once again, for the record, people can care about dogs and still eat meat.  It is possible.  That is my point.

ETA:  Yes I know about the slaughters of farm animals.  If you would like to discuss that in further detail maybe we can start another thread as that is not part of the OPs thread and may be considered threadjacking.

@Miss Tattoo:from your posts, i’m guessing you don’t have a dog. would you still feel that way if he abused a child?

my dog is my child, and a lot of dog owners feel the same way. so no, i would not be able to “let it go” if i knew my dog had been abused, and i don’t know why i would be expected to just “get over it.”

@Miss Tattoo:  I think that people can’t let it go for a few reasons.

 – The people that have adopted these dogs see everyday the damage that he has caused to these dogs.  Is it fair that he spent little time in jail when these dogs will be affected for the rest of their lives?

– He was in the news the other day wanting to own a dog.  That will get people talking again.  He brought this upon himself.

@Lovebird724: Then why are you buying your 8 year old a Vick jersy? When do the parents become responsible for their children?

@Lovebird724: but that 8 year old didn’t buy the jersey…his PARENTS did…and THAT’S the problem. Stop teaching your kids to view sports figures, actors, actresses, or any other celebrity for that matter, as heroes simply b/c they are able to throw a ball, act in a movie, dance, sing…whatever. Teach them the meaning of what a real hero is. It’s not Mike Vick’s fault that kids idolize him….parents have to bear the brunt of that.

@Miss Tattoo: woahhhh i never said it was my 8 year old!  i said it meaning a random child

 

eta – i think i misunderstood at first – agreed, but that doesnt stop the fact that society idolizes football, sports, and moviestars – and the man doesnt deserve to be idolized

to add to this…cows are slaughtered to be EATEN…these dogs were tortured and killed, etc. because they lost a fight/wouldn’t fight. BIG BIG BIG difference. I think Vick is a POS and shouldn’t have been allowed back in the NFL. I honestly don’t care what ever happens to him whether he dies or lives….and I know where he WON’T be going when he dies.

Not everyone loves aniamls. Some people don’t care about dogs. Cruelty and torture or not its not a big deal b/c they don’t care its not a person, its just a dog so thats why I think theres a huge gap in opinions.

@Lovebird724: I took your comments to mean being in the NFL makes someone a hero.  If that was not your point, I withdraw.  Nonetheless, it is your opinion that he does or doesn’t have the right to be a hero (though I still disagree that he can qualify for that honor solely based on his job).  Other (like that little kid) may and do hold different opinions.

I still am confused though.  What job would you have him take where he would be restricted from being inspirational or heroic?  Do we really want a person like that to go into less than admirable positions, or would we rather have them aspire to more?

Le sigh…Michael Vick. I’m very happy that the Eagles are doing well, and I hope he continues to succeed. I don’t like football at all, but all th edouble standards left right and centre really piss me off, and I am not convinced that Michael Vick should be scapegoated any further. Quite frankly his finances are and will continue to be in an awful state, big payday or not. I’m pleased to see that he didn’t take the easy way out of this situation and will have to pay his debts. If he does that by playing fantastic football, so be it.

Dog fighting is absolutely awful.

I feel like this whole Michael Vick thing and all of the arguments about it have been hashed out on other threads at at this point we’re all *cough* beating a dead horse.
