Why shouldn’t he own a dog?

@mncrk09: oh wow…I think it’s unnessary and don’t think the ban should be lifted, personally.

@Belle2Be:  I take it you don’t know who Michael Vick is or his history?  He was tried and found guilty of operating a dog fighting facility and of multiple acts of cruelty to animals. 

In my opinion, he should still be in jail let alone allowed to own an animal.

No, No, and No! 

I used to be an Eagles fan, but I can not condone a team that would allow him to be on it.  I can’t forgive him for what he did to those poor dogs.  I would honesly hope no one would allow him to own a dog ever.

@lisa105: I know he ran it, but I wasn’t under the impression it was his own dog. And I’ve also heard that he did his “time” and has been reformed, so to say. I don’t see a problem with him having a dog, it might help him.

I don’t see a problem with him owning a dog as a PET. I think having an emotional attachment to another animal may help him understand why so many people were up in arms by something that he, and a whole lot of other people, saw as “just the way things are done”.

Being born and raised in the South, I can say that having animals fight for cash happens quite regularly and is normally treated with a slap on the wrist. I have no doubt that had Mike Vick not been Mike Vick, he probably would have gotten a slap on the wrist as well. That’s not to say that dogfighting and cockfighting are RIGHT, just that it’s pretty common. Maybe seeing Mike Vick serve time and come out and make strides to turn his life around, including owning a pet, may help others see the light about their own activities.

@Belle2Be: …….seriously? You don’t see the problem with letting someone who financially backed and oversaw a torurous dog fighting (fighting to the death) entertainment business own dogs again.

…….no, seriously?

NO, NO, and NOOO!!! I’m sorry, but a dog is unable to be a willing participant in his “rehabilitation”, so it was absolutely right for him to receive a lifetime ban.

And in my oppinion, the NFL and other sports leagues should set MUCH higher standards for their players. If they break a law and are convicted, they should be kicked out of the league. Maybe then our kids would actually have idols and heros to be proud of and that would motivate our kids to do well in school, work hard, be honest, and follow th law.

Personally if the guy who was convicted of raping me and only got 5 years (and served only 2) is roaming free on the streets and able to get a girlfriend, I see no problem with Micheal Vick having a dog.
