Special Comment! Michael Vick.

Okay!  I have basically had it up to here with white people.  Once again, they want to change the rules as to the way things work.  O.J. Simpson got acquitted of murder and the predominately black jury was criticized as being stupid and uniformed.  George W. Bush and Dick Cheney invaded Iraq, perhaps killing millions of innocent civilians.  Yet, they walk around as free men.  Idiots to most, heroes to some.  They still need to be brought to justice for their crimes against humanity.  Sarah Palin shoots wolves from helicopters and thinks that polar bears are the new niggers of Alaska but where is the outrage?  I am mad as hell right now and white people and PETA can suck my meat eating dick!

I want to be perfectly clear here!  What Michael Vick did was wrong and vile.  But he paid his debt to society and thus, should be offered all of the rights and privileges of a free man.  Yesterday, Vick signed a two year contract with the Philadelphia Eagles and white folks and PETA have lost their fucking minds (not for the first time).  Here is PETA’s statement concerning the signing of Michael Vick:

PETA and millions of decent football fans around the world are disappointed that the Philadelphia Eagles have chosen to sign a man who hanged dogs from trees, electrocuted them with jumper cables, held them underwater until they drowned in his swimming pool, and even threw his own family dogs into the fighting pit to be torn to shreds while he laughed. What sort of message does this send to young fans who care about animals and don’t want to see them be harmed?

PETA certainly hopes that Vick has learned his lesson and feels truly remorseful for his crimes—but since he’s given no public indication that that’s the case, only time will tell. At this point, all Eagles fans can do is cross their fingers and hope that they won’t ever have to explain to their sons and daughters what a “rape rack” is and why their favorite player was using one, as Falcons fans once had to.

Please pay particular attention to the language in the PETA statement!  How in the hell can Peta speak for the millions of “decent” football fans across the country?  Does that make those of us who want to see the American dream realized indecent?  Keep in mind that a few weeks ago, PETA was calling for Michael Vick to undergo a brain scan to see if he was truly remorseful.  That’s akin to giving George W. Bush a brain scan to search for intelligence.  The very concept in and of itself is ridiculous.  I have nothing against advocacy groups but PETA would rather you be eaten alive by mosquitoes than have a truck come by and spray their blood sucking asses back to the swamp.

My point is this!  In America, we live by a systems of laws.  If you break the law, you suffer the consequences!  Michael Vick suffered the consequences by spending nearly two years in a federal penitentiary.  Most convicted felons on average, will never command a six figure salary upon their release.  Should Vick be penalized because he can run fast and throw a ball?  I don’t think so!  Two time Super Bowl champ Ben Roethlisberger is accused of raping a woman and I don’t hear anybody calling for him to be banned from playing football or being forced to undergo a brain scan!  Could it be that because he is a white man and his victim was not a dog that nobody gives a damn?

Post Script:  I normally do not approve of using the “N” word but thought that it was appropriate for emphasis for this comment.

    Vick served his damn time! He satisfied the system of justice we have in America. PETA is not above our constitution or our laws, so he shouldn’t have to answer to them at all! PETA needs to move to another subject, because this one is dead. They say Vick was a model inmate. That is all that was required.

    You are so right Vaughn! It amazes me that they are always trying to change the rules or make examples out of black people.

    I am certainly apauled by our society and our legal system and their justification of what’s right and what is wrong. As I sit in my office talking to two white staff members debating on the point of Vic’s reinstatement back into the NFL and them arguing that they feel if you are charged with a crime, you do not deserve to be given a chance back into society or into th NFL. Then I put a twist to it, and said what if it was you and then they sat with their mouths open without a response and then I said my point exactly. Tyson should have never served time for a crime he did not commit. Let me think you are in my hotel room at 3 am. What more could they have been doing in that hotel room, but to have sex. I am confused. I certainly don’t think they were having a bible session or playing scrabble. I would have charged the women with slander. OJ was aquitted but yet because we have this so called double jeopardy law, so in retrospect they charged him with a civil suit. Like saying he was guilty by association. Get the hell out of here…and I sit and watch numerous court cases and can’t understand how we can put 12 people on a jury to determine someones fait after day in and day deliberating…duh..the system is not flawless and we all know that..if you are going to charge someone with a crime with regards to atheletes, at least make it consistant to the crime..like Michael Phelps…this guy get’s a slap on the hand for smoking marijuana..picture is clear as day…Marion Barry smokes crack and he is chastized, and criticized..come on people “let’s all just try to get along”, as the old quote heard around the world..

    There is a lot on injustices in this world. But the jury system that we have in place is the best method I’ve seen yet, as long as it is a jury of your peers.

    If I remember correctly Phelps did receive a six month suspension; like it really has an effect on him. As for Tyson, that girl should not have been in his room under any circumstances.

    As far as Berry is concerned, he deserved everything he got. The mayor (at the time) should not have allowed himself to be setup the way he was.

  5. Juries, like the voters, are often bamboozled by the defense or prosecution, both of which do not care one bit about “justice” but about “winning.”

    I do not believe in grabbing someone off the street and making them a juror, any more than I believe they should vote. Heck you take a test to drive a car! But you can vote or be a juror, with much more important consequences if you screw those up, with minimal restrictions.

    In Europe, there are “professional” jurors, who understand the law, etc and are less impressionable when either the defense of prosecution try to pull some BS on them.

    Couple of things, anyone defending OJ has some serious developmental flaws. It is common to have a civil suit follow on the heels of a criminal one. Lets talk about “If I Did It?” And the rights of the Vics.

    Michael Vick and his brother Marcus have demonstrated a serious lack of responsibility. The issue is about them, endorsements, role models,not the societal prejudices that may or may not pertain. They have acted like thugs .

    Mike Tyson is a joke how many people did he assult? I lost track.

    Michael Phelps smoked grass, how is this like Murder, assult and abuse of public office?

    Anarchist we have professionals in our jury system they are called “retired citizens” everyone else dodges it.

    • > we have professionals in our jury system they
      > are called “retired citizens” everyone else
      > dodges it.

      What? I’ll have to be a juror when I retire?

      I’ve never “dodged” service. But..they just won’t seat me. Sometimes it’s ’cause my bro is a federal law enforcement officer. Or, maybe I answer those questions “wrong” and they decide I’m a clear and present danger.

      Last time I was called they had free doughnuts and coffee! Can I can serve *everyday* when I retire? LOL! As long as I get those doughnuts and coffee first and then they throw me off, I’m OK! Oh..and free parking too!

    I am not defending O.J. Simpson or the Vicks. But Ojay was found not guilty in the criminal case. Sure, he pretty much screwed up his life after that but that’s O.J.

    My point is that even though Vick has committed vile acts, he has paid his debt to society. You of all people, truth, justice, and the American way should not begrudge the man a second chance at life.

    As for Phelps, I don’t give a damn about anyone smoking weed, I was pointing out that The Steeler’s quarterback is accused of rape and their is no outrage. Innocent until proven guilty seems to work for only a certain segment of the population.
