Michael Vick: 'I would love to get another dog in the future'
Yahoo Sports ^ | 12-15-10 | Chris Chase

Posted on 12/15/2010 7:57:46 PM PST by Justaham

Michael Vick(notes) wants another dog. He told this to NBC News in an interview set to air Wednesday:

"I would love to get another dog in the future. I think it would be a big step for me in the rehabilitation process.

"I think just to have a pet in my household and to show people that I genuinely care, and my love and my passion for animals; I think it would be outstanding. If I ever have the opportunity again I will never take it for granted. I miss having a dog right now. I wish I could. My daughters miss having one, and that's the hardest thing: telling them that we can't have one because of my actions."

Too soon, Michael. Too soon.

I say let him have a dog. He’s already done the time for his crime. Does anybody think he’d be so stupid as to abuse a dog again? Actually having a dog as a pet will likely make him regret his previous actions all the more.

No, the hardest thing is that they will figure out that you are a sadistic creep.

Give him a few of his former objects of abuse. Lock them in a room.

At the end of the day, it was only friggen dogs. While Ray Lewis merely kills a person and there is no outrage about that.

People’s sensibilities are seriously screwed up. Arf!

He had a lot of dogs already, what difference would one more make? How many dogs....dead, live, and maimed did they recover from his place. That's how many chances he had to love even one dog. He failed. One more dog will not change that.

I agree. He screwed up bad. But he did his time, and is outwardly trying hard to make amends. If he gets a dog, that’ll probably be the best treated animal you’ve ever seen. But some ninnies will insist on 50 years of punishment.

The key is if he has really repented. If he has, it’s stupid and useless to insist he keep being punished. Treated fairly, he could be a good advocate to help stop that culture he was involved in.

About Vick? maybe, I’m not a sadist. About Lewis? No. Murder is a huge accusation. He was acquitted. I’ve been in the wrong place at the wrong time personally.

“One more dog will not change that”

It very likely could. People every day deeply regret their terrible behavior at work, in marriages, in friendships, in war, etc. Many many of those people take wonderful advantage of another chance at something they’ve failed at.

I always find it odd when someone stubbornly refuses to accept someones clear attempt at righting a serious wrong in their life.

That's my take on the situation as well.

It's always been a pet peeve of mine to see how ex-cons are treated in our society. It's no wonder that the recidivism rate is so high once they get out of jail. Despite the fact that they did their time, nobody seems to want to give them a fair shake.

Now I'm no bleeding heart - if a person is deemed unfit to live in society, than throw away the key and let them rot in prison for life. But if we are going to let the rest of them out at some point, I believe we are obliged to let them return to society with full rights. That means they should be able to vote, own guns, and do anything else a regular citizen can do. Otherwise, why let them out at all?

Im with you 100% too. I would ask, can anyone, point to a single bad thing he has done SINCE what happened? I can’t find any,,but he has been quietly doing a lot of anti-dogfighting appearances. Even the humane society recently remarked on it in a positive manner.

I’ll say this,, my mom is the biggest Dallas fan you’ve ever seen. And last Sunday she told me that she’s starting to think Vick is finlly acting right.

You would need to know my mom to understand the gravity of this statement.

Really? Since, obviously, you don't know me, you have a lot more substantiated information about Vic that you do me. His actions speaks volumes compared to the two or three lines of my post that you find "odd".

Second, you have no way of knowing if this is a "clear attempt at righting a serious wrong". At stake is not his ranking in the animal kingdom, but his fortune in his career. The guy said he wanted a dog; he's already had LOTS of dogs. What did he do with them? He proved himself already. Why does he need one more dog? That's like giving a child molester a pass to the playground to prove he loves kids. Of course he does; that's why he was arrested. I'd give Vic a pass if he never went near another dog in his life. That's the only way he could prove he cares about dogs is to make sure none were in his possession again.

The writer of the article of the article is a fan of his, and he agreed with you. Opined that it was a in the future for him, but still a bit too early to broach the topic.

“I say, let’s see how Vick does when he has nothing to lose.”

Which in a big irony,, is precisely when you really need a dog. A dog stays loyal to the end.

BS 1: He fought the dogs, basically to the death. 2: If they didn’t die or didn’t fight well he killed them in extremely cruel ways. There isn’t any cure for these things as far as I know. He hasn’t had a come to Jesus moment. He’s had a contract come to me moment. I’m suprised he was ever let back in the league but then the what are we basically reflecting on at this site? The death of the species through a lack of any ethics, morals or sense.

Exactly, if it was just dog fighting, I would cut him a break, but it’s what he did to the losing dogs that will always make him a scumbag in my eyes.

And oh yeah, that whole Ron Mexico thing, and all those women he gave herpes to.

This freak tortures animals to death, and the NFL lets him back into the league. Rush is an outspoken conservative, so the NFL bars him from team ownership. What a bunch of idiots.

Baptist press,, Michael Vick, good read. No matter what he says,, some will act childish about it. But there are plenty of sports stars who get in trouble and never try this hard. It appears it would really dissappoint some people, if he indeed found Christ and was trying to live right.

"I say let him have a dog. He’s already done the time for his crime."

Using the same logic, it must follow then that all child molesters who've done their time should be allowed to work as baby sitters.

If someone commits domestic violence, are they allowed to remarry? And as much as I love dogs,, comparing his treatment of fighting pit-bulls, to child molestation,,is a stretch.

That’s a leftist thing, recognizing no difference. A rat is a pig, is a dog, is a boy. Child molestation is several orders of magnitude worse than abusing a dog. Thats why it’s different.

I don't think anybody here would equate the two. But it still doesn't diminish the heinous nature of his actions.
