Michael Vick’s pet rock

On Piers Morgan, the other night, Michael Vick once again expressed his desire to have a pet for his kids. Not a pit bull, he said. There are rumors that he has already bought a beagle. God forbid. (There was a fake World News report last December that said he had gotten a beagle but the article was FAKE). It is important to remember that Vick put his own pet dog Champagne into the dog fighting ring as bait and laughed at the dog getting hurt. He thought it was all fun and jolly to kill dogs in the most horrific ways possible… poor innocent animals who did not perform well.  He killed at least 12 dogs in six years.

Don’t believe me? Look at page 4 of the 2008 USDA report that details him torturing his kids family dogs, for his own amusement and that of his friends.

but hey Vick says someone else made him kill and torture dogs, oh really… buy that and I’ve got a bridge to sell you.

Intentionally maiming and then killing dogs is no mistake and NO ONE can make you BE A SADIST. It is a calculated and callous crime. Vick not only funded a dog fighting operation, he also engaged first hand in the cruelty for six years. He personally violated dogs using electrical wire and then threw them into a pool so they were electrocuted. He also executed approximately 8 dogs that did not perform well in ‘testing’ sessions” and killed using various methods, including hanging, drowning, and slamming at least one dog’s body to the ground.

please vote NO, this poll now says 81% think vick should get a dog, http://www.tmz.com/2012/07/18/michael-vick-dogs-piers-morgan/

In another article, Vick says he does not have to answer any questions about dog fighting anymore. We DISAGREE.  He has NEVER answered the questions honestly.   Psychopaths/sociopaths are all alike… (Like Mitt Romney and his taxes, they think the rules do not apply to them)…

http://offthebench.nbcsports.com/2012/07/30/michael-vick-on-his-dogfighting-past-im-never-answering-these-questions-again/

Below are a few well written responses to this idea. Vick does not deserve a pet rock, in my humble opinion and that of many of us who have gotten to know and love the dogs that were formerly his at the Bad Newz Kennels… Ginger, Stella, Hector, Cherry, Handsome Dan, Little Red, Squeaky Jean, and many others, some who have passed. And in memory of those who were killed at Vick’s hands such as the little red dog in The Lost Dogs book by Jim Gorant. It is unbearable to consider such a possibility when the above named and unnamed dogs are still suffering, and Vick has shown absolutely NO remorse whatsoever for the damage he did to them and the others found dead on his property.  Three times Vick was offered an opportunity to meet with Best Friends, Bad Rap and Richard Hunter, pet guardian of Mel, who lost his bark and suffers immensely from anxiety. And Vick refused each time.

When a person refuses to FACE THEIR PAST WRONGDOINGS how can one possibly move forward?  Vick says he paid his debt. Truth is he got a sweetheart plea deal and should still be in prison for the ANIMAL CRUELTY charges that he was never charged with. He only went to jail for the federal charges of “Conspiracy to Travel in Interstate Commerce in Aid of Unlawful Activities and to Sponsor a Dog in an Animal Fighting Venture.” (explained below in Chris Durant’s blog post). Animal abuse and dog serial killing is a precursor to people abuse. A homicidal maniac is a homicidal maniac is a homicidal maniac. It makes me ill to think of Vick being allowed near another animal ever again in this life.

Michael Vick’s dog adoption app

“Best Friends is often asked if we think Vick should be allowed to own another dog. While his eligibility for dog ownership is a matter of law, imagine, if you would, what it would be like reading through a potential dog adoption application from Michael Vick:

  • Have you had a dog before? Yes
  • If yes, how many? Lots
  • Do you still have a dog(s)? No
  • If you have had dogs in the past, please let us know their current disposition. Dead or confiscated by federal authorities.
  • If you no longer have other dogs, please let us know what happened to them. Some I sold to dog fighters, some I had my cousin electrocute or shoot, some I personally strangled, drowned or body-slammed to death.
  • Why do you want to get a dog at this time? Because I served my time and kids want a dog.

OK, thank you, Michael. We’ll get back to you on your application.”

http://blogs.bestfriends.org/index.php/2012/07/20/michael-vick-dog-adoption-app/

“Sure, let Michael Vick get a sweet, furry, little four-legged friend; While we are at it, let’s just have convicted serial child molester Jerry Sandusky open a daycare or head a children’s charity of some sort.”

http://dfw.cbslocal.com/2012/07/19/michael-vick-future-dog-owner-no-way/

“Michael Vick says maybe he’ll get a dog.

“And, worse yet, at the end of this month — when the no-dog clause of his sentence for dogfighting expires — he legally can.”

http://www.ohmidog.com/2012/07/18/michael-vick-says-maybe-hell-get-a-dog

 “Between 2001 and 2007 Michael Vick sponsored dogs in eleven fights. Additionally, he traveled to four states to purchase eleven dogs. Again, could this not be construed as 22 counts? Even with Vick’s meager sentencing this would have equated to 396 months or 33 YEARS!! And even at an absolute minimum, why was he not charged with four counts of the incredibly weak “Conspiracy…”?

“But better yet, if he had been truly tried according to Virginia’s Animal Cruelty Laws he could have been tried for twenty dog fights and nine executions. SIXTY FIVE YEARS! Instead, he was again allowed to plead out (while serving out his Federal sentence) to ONE count of dog fighting (the single Animal Cruelty charge was dropped as a part of the plea agreement) and received a three year suspended sentence for time served on the Federal charges. The prosecutor (Virginia’s Surry County Commonwealth Attorney General – Gerald G. Poindexter) didn’t feel that the costs associated with transporting Vick to Virginia from Leavenworth penitentiary in Kansas was worth it. There was also another $2,500 fine which was suspended as well. Nice job, Poindexter. I am sure the good people of Surry County think you’re a real legal eagle, huh?

“Another side note: Five of the surviving dogs rescued from Vick’s compound had to be put down. He was not held accountable for those either. But, according to Virginia law, he absolutely should have been. That would have brought the potential charge count up to 34 and another $12,500 for Mr. Poindexter’s ridiculous transportation fund.”

Look into the innocent eyes of the dogs, some still haunted, some still suffering from fears and anxieties and tell the world, please, does Vick deserve to own another dog???

And sign this petition if you think that the dogs and Jim Gorant, author of the Lost Dogs book deserve equal air time on CNN and Piers Morgan…

How to make a pet rock

http://familycrafts.about.com/od/stoneandrock/ss/petrocks.htm

Send Michael Vick Some Balls

perhaps we should send him rocks or balls with dogs names on them to jog his memory and conscience (does he have one?) and let him know what he did to those dogs are why he cannot EVER have another pet, no matter if it is legal… let him tell his kids the real reasons (The Lost Dogs) why he can’t EVER have another pet… IF he really had changed and had a shred of integrity, he would… (am not holding my breath)

the dog washing of Michael Vick

Must Read: 

 

when you get over casey anthony I’ll get over vick, hah !!!

https://www.facebook.com/notes/jamie-fitzgerald/when-you-get-over-casey-ill-get-over-mikey/10150332476870359 

 

 

as i sat and listened to patriotic songs on the 4th of july, my heart bled very sad for America…my America… cried and cried… and

what I got is that Michael Vick and Nike are the perfect symbols/ representatives of everything that is wrong with the USA… greed, bottomline idolation, no conscience, violence, no remorse, macho hoopla, hollow, fake religious fervor… perhaps Nike’s soul-less corporate bots are the perfect vehicle for selling Vick’s fake redemption story?

yes, that foul smelling odor coming your way, clouding the very air you breathe that you are holding your nose against is the dog washing of Michael Vick.

we all know how much dogs hate taking baths. well, dog/animal lovers hate getting the same old questions, as if we are the ones who are guilty, yes I am guilty of the crime of pointing out the truth about Michael Vick and his crimes against nature…. so so so very tired tired tired of the sorry excuses, name calling, distractions and  other garbage.  I thought I had it all covered when I wrote Six Wrongs Don’t Make Vick right (I’d say 600 wrongs now)… but apparently there is still more to say on this subject.

Here’s how to deal with the fleas (block, delete, ban, arm yourself with the facts, be polite and show them we got class)…

there really is no defense for the indefensible… so when 200 million pet owners and millions of parents are armed with the facts, what else can Vick’s peeps say?

in the Orwellian world in which we live, where polluters of the most toxic substances routinely greenwash, try to sell consumers on how eco friendly it is to destroy your health, our planet…

Vick’s PR  handlers and Nike bring you the dogwashing of Michael Vick… the washing off the stench of the blood stains with a squeaky clean redemption story… where he talks about lying but still does not confess his lies, lying about lying… the real lies. the meaningful lies. oh yes, he does say that he lied about what he did, professed his innocence when he knew he was guilty. when all of the evidence against him pointed to what he did, he still said no, I’m not guilty. believe him, he is a self-professed liar.

the responses of Vick’s fans have often been puzzling, infuriating and/or tiresome to many animal lovers. Give them the facts and routinely you are called a racist, while they rant about white bitches, told he has paid his dues, made mistakes, we must not judge him/cast stones since we are not without sin, must give him a second chance and we must forgive…on and on and on it goes…  as if we are the ones who committed the crimes he did…instead of we are the ones pointing out the crimes he did that many still do not know about and some refuse to want to hear, denial ain’t just a river in Egypt…

here’s what sticks in our craws:

1. racists calling me a racist is ironic and absurd

yes, I actually voted for Obama, get over it, and defend him even though am not all together happy with all he’s done and not done. There are plenty of deserving black athletes who could / should have gotten the Sportsman of the Year award not Vick. I do not follow sports, esp. not football, all I know about is beach volleyball, go Kerry Walsh and Misty May Treanor !

But race is so NOT NOT NOT the issue. And no, I am not jealous of his success/blood money as it were, either. And I don’t target Vick because he’s famous. Just read my blog posts. Nor do I hate successful black people. I do however despise people getting away with murder just because they’re rich and famous. And tonight when they are miserable lying mothers (Casey Anthony) who many people believe killed her own sweet baby and got a not guilty verdict. Our justice system is so broken.  no, I do NOT condone child abusers, women beaters, or any other criminal or hold a double standard.

2. paid his dues, did his time

when people say ” he did his time!”

Michael Vick “did his time” for Federal Racketeering, he served his prison sentence for Federal Racketeering – ONLY.

The crimes, the heinous acts and crimes of Animal Cruelty – Michael Vick plead “Not Guilty”.

In a brokered Plea Agreement, the charges of Animal Cruelty were dismissed. Thus, unpunished were these crimes, by this man, against humanity.

The known, proven, admitted crimes of murder, rape, and torture of innocent defenseless beings was thrown out – dismissed – in the Plea Agreement.

The crimes in which, Michael Vick, systematically, prepared, planned, participated and executed, repeatedly, against these animals, was left unpunished in the legal justice system.

This is a known public record of fact.

3. he made mistakes… don’t you ever make mistakes? obviously you’re perfect and never make mistakes*

Define mistakes. Of course I make mistakes all the time, every day I make mistakes. However, it has never occurred to me to kill, torture and maim dogs for fun and pleasure and profit.  How many people do you know who have made these kinds of mistakes? And do you want them as neighbors? friends? role models for your children? And do you know that serial killers have long histories of killing animals before killing human beings? Just because Vick has not (yet that we know of) abused or harmed another human, does not mean he should just slide. Why give Vick preferential treatment just because he is rich, famous and can play football? Joe average would still be in jail for a 100 years for Vick’s heinous crimes.

What Vick calls “mistakes” were actually felonies which could have sent him to prison for much longer than the 18 months he spent incarcerated. The fact is, he spent years torturing and killing defenseless animals.

4. must not judge since we are not without sin

so we should just let cannibals do their thing, child abusers molest children, criminals steal our country and it is just fine to allow murderers get away with murder?

5. you don’t believe in second chances?

how many second chances did he give the dogs he murdered for not performing in the ring? NONE.

Love what this guy says:

http://bullmarketfrogs.com/blog/2009/10/hit-vick-feed-a-homeless-pet/

so so so very tired, tired of the ‘Does he deserve a second chance?’ kind of thing,” said Bill Smith, founder and CEO of the shelter, which is near Valley Forge. “Maybe it’s about time that the millions of pit bulls euthanized every year got their second chance.”

“… They’re great dogs,” he said, adding they’ve gotten a terrible stigma “because of people like Michael Vick.”

6.  what about all the good he is doing talking to kids?

He has done nothing other than PR for his image. Nothing more than what he was court ordered to do. And oh yeah, dog fighting has gone up due to him Why? Kids think it is cool to be like him. And hey, he got away with a light sentence, slap on the wrist (I know he thinks it was a rough sentence, pshaaaawww, waa waa waa… close the front door …

 http://whyy.org/cms/news/featured/2010/04/12/raid-shows-the-horror-of-dogfighting/35810

7.  Vick was just a victim of his background, neighborhood, culture, and cultural values.

Uh uh. According to Michael Vick’s father:

more indepth than the other article below, http://www.washingtonpost.com/​wp-dyn/content/article/2007/08​/23/AR2007082302385.html

Michael Vick’s estranged father, in an interview with the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, says he urged his son years ago to quit dogfighting, and dismissed the idea that Vick’s friends were the main instigators of the dogfighting operation.

“I wish people would stop sugarcoating it,” Michael Boddie told the newspaper. “This is Mike’s thing. And he knows it.”

Boddie, 45, who has not talked directly to his son in the last 26½ months, said his son “likes (dogfighting) and he has the capital to have a set up like that.”

Boddie also said in 2001 his son staged dogfights in the garage of the family’s home in Newport News, Va., and kept fighting dogs in the family’s backyard, according to the newspaper.

Boddie told the newspaper he’s speaking out because he’s been hurt by what he says are inaccurate reports that Vick grew up without his father present. “I’ve been drug through the mud,” he said.

He also told the newspaper that federal investigators have not contacted him about dogfighting accusations against his son.

8.  we must forgive him, don’t you believe in forgiveness? (said with holier than thou attitude)…

 and he is redeemed (well, there you have it church, say amen, glory Hallelujah, praise Jesus)

these last two go together. of course, I believe in forgiveness and redemption. But without any admittance of the truth of sins/crimes, there is no remorse. without remorse, no conscience, how can there be anything resembling real redemption/forgiveness???  His PR/handlers are trying to sell this dogwashed story to the public and  gullible fans are eating it up like dogs eat poop. even the reviewers said that his failed 2010 reality show had too much talk of redemption and not enough talk about his crimes. So for people with brains in their heads, the whole/holey angle rings hollow especially since every time Vick opens up his mouth he refutes the redemption story. You can lead a sociopath to pretend he’s sincere but you cannot make him have remorse when he has no conscience. You cannot make him truly redeemable and forgivable.

He says has no regrets except he’s sorry he got caught and he wishes he had gotten a shorter jail sentence…

why parents should boycott Nike:

Intentionally maiming and then killing dogs is not a mistake. It is a calculated and callous crime. Vick not only funded a dog fighting operation, he also engaged first hand in the cruelty for six years.

He also executed approximately 8 dogs that did not perform well in ‘testing’ sessions” and killed using various methods, including hanging, drowning, and slamming at least one dog’s body to the ground.
Is executing animals for profit for six years in a row a mistake?

Now some fans are laughing at us, saying we don’t amount to a hill of beans, we don’t buy Nike products, blah blah blah… meanwhile, grandmothers and mothers and dads buy their kids Nikes… and 200 million pet owners, some have kids, too… never underestimate the power of Truth, Justice, it’s the American Way !
