From the Pent House to the Dog House to the Big House … Michael Vick to Plead Guilty to Dog Fighting Charges


No apology needed Michael, please do not waste our time or insult our intelligence. Just go away and never come back. We are a forgiving society; however, you are only sorry you were caught. Why should you ever be given a second chance? The dogs you murdered didn’t get one.

Atlanta Falcons QB Michael Vick will plead guilty to federal dog fighting charges Michael_Vick_Dog5according to his attorney, Billy Martin. So much for Vick telling Falcon owner, Arthur Blank, and NFL commissioner, Roger Goodell, that he was innocent. LIAR! Vick had no other choice but to plead guilty as first one co-defendant and then two more pleaded guilty in exchange for evidence again Michael Vick.

In the statement by attorney Billy Martin, Vick agreed to plead guilty and accept a plea deal and will “accept full responsibility for his actions and the mistakes he has made,” ESPN and Fox News reported Monday.

Vick is expected to be sentenced next Monday at US District Court here. He could face up to five years in prison and fines of more than 250,000 dollars as a result of the charges, although a lesser sentence is likely from the deal.

“After consulting with his family over the weekend, Michael Vick asked that I announce today that he has reached an agreement with federal prosecutors regarding the charges pending against him,” Martin’s statement said. (Breitbart)

Next Michael Vick will have to face the wrath of the NFL commissioner who will most likely ban Vick for a year. Unfortunately it will not be for life for the absolute heinous acts that this man did. This is not a matter of making a single mistake or an error in judgement. The dog fighting charges and the inhuman acts by Vick are beyond comprehension. They show such a character flaw than any NFL team would be insane to hire Vick. We do not care to hear of Michael Vick’s apologies, they ring rather hollow.


(You best do better than saying you’re sorry. This goes way beyond an apology)

“Mr. Vick has agreed to enter a plea of guilty to those charges and to accept full responsibility for his actions and the mistakes he has made.”

“Michael wishes to apologizes again to everyone who has been hurt by this matter.”

Michael Vick had all of what life could ever offer him and more and he still could not behave like a human. Vick is only sorry that he was caught, nothing more. Funny how Vick has not really even addressed the gambling charges against him which is what will be his undoing when it comes to an NFL suspension.

Update I: Exit question from Hot Air: Lifetime suspension? I can’t believe they’d torpedo one of the top two or three talents in the league. Then again, if the fallout’s already this bad

      What the author fails to mention is that these are violent dogs that enjoy the fight. They are responsible for countless attacks against human beings, most of them children. They are put to sleep more than any other dog because of attacks upon other dogs, which usually result in death.

      Sure, Vick deserves to serve time for what he did, but throwing him in jail is not going to stop the violence that this particular breed of dog unleashes on the unknowing public, the most innocent of all being children.

      These dogs are banned in many parts of the U.S. and Canada and for that there is a very good reason. Vick has a personality flaw, but so do these animals that have been bred to fight to the death. Vick will step aside and be out of the picture, but there will be someone else to replace him. While the animals are only partly to blame, banning them will help to discontinue the way that these dogs are exploited.

      We ban all kinds of things in the interest of public safety and the pit bull should be one of them. I know that there are going to be those that say that it’s all in the way you raise them; but if you take the time to talk to or review the statements made by pit bull owners that have attacked children, you will find that they all say that it was out of their pets character.

      This is an animal that was bred by man for no other reason other than fighting and no matter how well you raise them, they still have that instinct to attack and fight that may come out at anytime. We have enough breeds of dogs that don’t have that flaw to choose from.

      Vick says he’s sorry, but is it possible for the pits that kill children, tiny children, to say they’re sorry? And, if so, could their “sorry” ever be enough?

      I say no… no to dog fighting as a sport and no to the dogs bred for no other purpose than to fight until they die in the ring. The LAST place they belong is in an unsuspecting pet lover’s home, much less on our streets, in our neighborhoods and within our communites. When it comes to public safety, saying you’re sorry is never enough, either.

      Remember the saying that a donkey will never run
      like a thoroughbred? A pit bull will never act
      like a rin-tin-tin or a fi-fi-fluff. We need to
      stop exploiting them and expecting them to be
      something that they’re not. They are fighting dogs (period) nothing more, nothing less.

      Vick was not indicted for dog fighting.

      Read the indictment.

      Please stop reporting the MSM as you see fit.
      SM: I just read it and it looks like he is to me? (klaasend)

      Big NFL fan here and I never want to see Vick take another snap in Pro Football. Vick helped in killing dogs that did not perform and that including hanging them and drowning them. He most likely helped in killing other animals and god knows what other crimes he committed against helpless animals.

      They train these dogs by attacking smaller dogs and letting them rip them to shreds. There is a reason why this sport is illegal and its sickening to see what these Dogs go through. I hope to see them collect every dime of bonus money they paid him and he gets the maximum sentence under federal law.

      Sorry, will never ever be enough for what these persons did to those poor dogs. I hope you all one day feel the same kind of pain you inflicted upon these poor defenseless animals. Too bad they all did not turn on you people.

    7. Donnar2015 on August 21st, 2007 10:16 am

      Another thing, all of those participating in this horrible act need to be charged with animal cruelty also. One count of animal cruelty for each dog. Vick you can now wipe that smurky smile off your face. You were never sorry you are just sorry you got caught. I hope you all get what is coming to you.

      Very good article from
      July 26 AOL Sports about the gambling issue that is also in the mix or being left out of it.

      We will have to wait and see and send our thoughts to the NFL.

      let’s hope Vick spills the beans and the FBI can start rounding up all these killers including the rednecks that have been interviewed on television.
      seems that the pit bull is popular with thugs, athletes, and rednecks. shouldn’t be hard to round up a few more . judging from all i’ve read in the last few days, the dog fighting world is scared to death right now because the say that Vick will talk. they consider Vick a super heavy weight in the dog fighting circles sometimes betting as much as $40,000.00 on fights.

      Vick is an ignorant loser. We as humans have destroyed this breed of dog. Ban the Pitbull and lets go back to slavery for the blacks. They have done nothing productive since slavery was abolished, and to tell you the truth my shoes are getting all scuffed up with no one to shine them.

    13. Disgraced Dog Fighting Michael Vick Signs with the NFL’s Philadelphia Eagles … Why? | Scared Monkeys on August 14th, 2009 2:41 pm

      [...] A long with that contract comes the distraction and most likely backlash and protests from PETA for Vick’s past involvement with dog fighting and cruelty to animal. However, more so than that comes the acceptance of the Philly fans, who as everyone knows are tough to win over. Let’s hope for Vick’s sake he does a better job than Santa Claus. Then there are the away games where in every city there will be protests and fans in the stands holding up Milk Bone dog biscuit boxes with Vick’s likeness on it. However, the real issue is how will most fans look at Vick and his actions after he has served prison time for dog fighting? [...]
