Sports Illustrated poll on Michael Vick

I've been wanting to post something about the Michael Vick indictment but have been angry and disgusted on too many levels to be able to write coherently (or even rant). Thanks to my sister, Annie, I can at least give you this link to a Sports Illustrated opinion poll.

I really have been knitting and promise to post some pictures this week.

Cate, I was just appalled when the story broke about Vick. Dog fighting is a sick, vicious thing, and I just can't believe people will still do that. I've never liked pitbulls, but abusing them this way is awful. People who watch this need therapy, and the people who profit from it need jail.

Well, I like to give people the benefit of the doubt before assuming they're guilty, but the story is starting to look pretty damning.

I'll bet folks in Blacksburg wish the rest of the country had never heard of Virginia Tech, for a couple of reasons....

Cate, I read the long article in SI about this a few weeks back and one of the things I found most disturbing was the scope of this perverted behavior. Apparently, it is taking place on a much larger scale among pro athletes than anyone was aware of before this indictment. I can't discuss it rationally either, it sickens me so much. I have some ideas for punishment of the perpetrators

I'm glad to see America feels the same way I do about this case. I wish they would give the guilty parties the same treatment as the dogs were given!

I think part of his sentence should include community service at a dog pound. A LOT of community service. With a large shovel

He needs more than community service - he needs to suffer.

dog fighting is one of the worst most awful things i ever ever worked on when i worked with the Humane Society in Texas years ago...i cannot tell you the number of scumbags involved...and now that it has spilled into some of the profootball players (and other professionals) I'mjust appalled that public figures and somewhat educated individuals could even think that this was something TO awfully inhuman...what are people turning into?

I am inflamed, angry, upset, and outraged and planning to take part in a major local protest should he travel with the Falcons when they play the Bucs.

The indictment is sickening. I wish everyone would read it and see the kind of evidence they have on him.
