NAACP: Let Vick Play Again After Sentence

How I manage to hone in on the most infuriating headlines/stories is, well,
beyond me. This is hot off MSN today. I'm sure if you read it you will easily see why it angers me. And then of course, I tell you all about it below, if you weren't sure. :)

NAACP: Let Vick Play Again After Sentence

ATLANTA (AP) - An NAACP leader said Michael Vick should be
allowed to return to the NFL, preferably the Atlanta Falcons, after serving his
sentence for his role in a dogfighting operation.
"As a society, we
should
aid in his rehabilitation and welcome a new Michael Vick back into the
community without a permanent loss of his career in football," said R.L.
White,
president of the NAACP's Atlanta chapter. "We further ask the NFL, Falcons, and the sponsors not
to permanently ban Mr. Vick from his ability to bring hours of enjoyment to
fans
all over this country."
White said the Falcons quarterback made a
mistake and should be allowed to prove he has learned from that mistake. On
Monday, Vick said through a lawyer that he will plead guilty to a federal
charge
of conspiracy to travel in interstate commerce in aid of unlawful
activities and
conspiracy to sponsor a dog in an animal fighting venture.
Three Vick associates have pleaded guilty to the conspiracy charge and say
Vick provided nearly all the gambling and operating funds for the "Bad Newz
Kennels" dogfighting enterprise. Two of them also said Vick participated in
executing at least eight underperforming dogs, raising the possibility of
the
animal cruelty charges.
Last month, state and local leaders of the
National
Association for the Advancement of Colored People urged the public
not to rush
to judgment in the Vick case. The civil rights organization said
animal rights
groups, talk radio and the news media were vilifying the
embattled athlete, and
that his team and corporate sponsors were prematurely
punishing Vick.
White
said the Atlanta chapter supports Vick's decision
to accept a plea bargain if
it's in his best interest, but he questioned the
credibility of Vick's
co-defendants, saying an admission of guilt might be
more about cutting losses
than the truth.
"At this point, you're not
looking at guilt or innocence,"
White said, referring to the possible
harsher sentence Vick could have received
had he taken his case to trial and
been found guilty. "You're thinking, 'What I
better do is cut my losses and
take a plea.' But if he saw this as the best
thing to do at this point for
his future, then I think he made the correct
choice."
White said he
regretted that the plea deal will mean all the facts
of the case might never
be known.
"Some have said things to save their own
necks," White said.
"Michael Vick has received more negative press than if he
had killed a human
being."
White said he does not support dogfighting and
that he considers
it as bad as hunting.
"His crime is, it was a dog," White
said.



I got somethin' to saa-ay - I'm skewering Mr. Vick to-daa-ay:

Poor Mr. Vick, obviously a victim of his co-torturers and their need to dump on his sorry near-blameless self. He should not be banned, he should be embraced. And when are we going to hear about his torried youth, the animals that terrified his dreams? Why I'm sure psychologically, Mr. Vick did not even realize that he was violently using animals and completely destroying them for his own pleasure - perhaps its some Odipus complex and he was just taking out 'issues' from way back when!

So you see, it’s no big deal because he only tortured ‘a dog’ or several. May I remind, that Jeffrey Dahlmer tortured animals before going for ‘bigger game,’ as well did many of our other most repulsive offenders. Well we can HARDLY compare the two, because while Mr. Dahlmer had nothing better to do than eat young men, Mr. Vick clearly has a day job! We cannot compare, because he just did it for FUN, blowing off steam, its so hard being one of the boys, or WHATever the reason, which by the way, he has not disclosed to you or I, John and Jo-Jo Public!! Which gives me no reason but to forgive....uh...uh....'cause WHY??

I’ve made it clear that here in JungleTart land, we couldn’t care less about football or any of its entirely overpaid players, many of which in my humble opinion have an attitude problem right about the time they are paid millions to play a game once a week, endorse products that children are interested in, somehow becoming heroes to them and the armchair, beer-drinking warriors that sired them: they make more money than is justifiable. Period.

In other words, call me a freak, but Mr. Vick has not provided me with one second of enjoyment, let alone an hour or more. Watching him fry or suffer greatly would help that situation, but let’s be real. Apparently it’s all no big deal to these NAACP normies, so WHAT do I know? Let's just let him off the hook (silly ol' dogs. Doesn't everybody abuse the f_k out of their animals? This is ridiculous.)

For football players, and other ‘players’ of their ilk, they become suddenly better than the rest of us (as rich people inherently are) and the rules don’t apply: not with drinking, drugs, the laws of gravity, and in this vile case, FOR FUN, because you can’t tell me the asshole needed the money, they tortured both dogs and cats. A person who even derives enjoyment out of such things should probably be locked up just for being a psychological deviant and no, I’m not talking good ol every day mental illness, I mean criminal evil.

Apparently, he hasn’t even been charged with the animal cruelty. Since this is all the media ever talks about, I thought that’s what this was all about. What are they afraid of? Charge him! What a country of plea-deals and whining, something is going on when we can’t hear him say he was guilty for it too. Yes, I think he is. I’m not sure how you commit half a crime and not all of it. Whatever.

This is a country with over-flowing ‘shelters,’ that must euthanize millions of cats and dogs every year, where you need a TV host to remind people to spay and neuter their animals because this simple information has not sunk into the American psyche.


Where abuse of animals is about on the same level as abusing children in most people’s minds, unless you ask them to say something out loud: it doesn’t matter and we don’t want to hear it. I say: that’s right they are both the same: reprehensible – keep your filthy enraged perverted hands off the puppy and off the baby. How hard? Judging on the daily, every day American outcomes, real hard, very hard, near impossible.

Why care if animals are hurt? They're silent, make no difference in your life, and unless you hurt and provoke them, no one's ever gonna know the difference. Unless you get caught. Damn it. And isn't it about the same for children? Oh, but this has NOthing to do with that. People give me crap for not having kids, but at least I can properly and completely take care of my furbabies, even with a mental illness. Um....NOT GETTING WHY ITS SO HARD, unless there's just more mental challenges for some people than formerly thought.

Why on Earth would the NAACP promote Vick? I am just enraged that some idiot has the nerve to tell us all to forgive him and could he please have his job back and could all those sponsors he had give him his job (money) back. No! No, no, no, no! I’m trying to imagine the kind of person that would electrocute, strangle, drown, and God knows what else to a dog. I know I can’t wait to invite him to my next shindig. He has not expressed one bit of remorse. Now, if he’s bowed b4 his maker and done so, I’m glad his conscience is so clean. He’s never asked me, Jo-Jo Public to do so, so gee I’m not feelin’ it. Un-ban him, and I say PETA lovers pour red paint on every pair of Nike’d feet they see. I’d like to see the SOB terrorized by a couple of pit bulls and throw some clawing cats his way. After all, its only a dog, only a cat.
