Protestors: Vick's Sick

7/21/2007 5:07 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Animal rights protesters are angry over Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick's alleged involvement with an illegal dogfighting ring. Vick was indicted on Tuesday for federal dogfighting charges.

Around 75 animal-loving members of the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals demonstrated in front of the NFL's New York offices on Friday calling for Vick's suspension, reported the Daily News. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has yet to rule on Vick's status.

The Humane Society of the United States held a similar protest at Nike's Portland, Oregon, headquarters. Nike recently decided not to release its newest Vick shoe, though it has seven other Vick-related items in production.

Too bad the headline didn't read "Micheal Vick Mauled to Death in Dog-fighting Accident"
That would have been justice,
in a perfect world.

truth be told    

TO all the IDIOTS who say WHO Cares or They are just dogs obviously does not know that people who abuse animals ALSO abuse other humans. ABUSING Animals is one of the first signs that leads to other Horrendous crimes in this world! Including murder.. the sooner we stop this, the better for society! Hopefully, this will bring attention to such a despicable crime and FINALLY we will be able to stop it!

I don't believe for a second Michael Vick didn't know about or participate in the activities. Loosers in life like that can't keep their mouth shut and had to strut and brag.
We will learn of his involvement because they also are not loyal unlike the animals they massacred, They will turn on Vick for reduced sentences.Just the fact that he is related to them is enough for me to stay clear of any association with the family tree.

They sould take him, rub pork fat all over his body and lock him in a room with 25 hungry pitbulls. About 24 hours should do it. Yup, should do it just right.

Will Vick himself play the race card or will Al Sharpton or will Isiah Washington give him a few pointers. Just don't go on the Al Sharpton show and apologize as it won't get you anywhere execpt to feed Sharptons ego and then you're done..... oh wait.... you're not white so you can do that.

The NFL should suspend him now and if he is found guilty, ban him from the sport forever - he's nothing that any kid should ever look up to or want to be like. This is not the image of a sports hero - never was and hopefully never will be.

This issue has nothing to do with race, it has to do with the humanity or lack of humanity of us as a species - the whole concept of what makes us a civilation - it is something deep inside us - far below the tint of anyone's skin - deep inside where we are all the same color called: human.

The topic is not aids, abortion rights nor world hunger but the torture and massacre of innocent animals by human beings. Some of you people are dense and unable to focus. There are blogs for other issues, they will welcome you.

THE PIT BULL IS THE MOST GENTLE, LOYAL, DEVOTED, WANTS-TO-PLEASE-YOU DOG YOU CAN OWN, AND VICIOUS, HEARTLESS HUMANS TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THAT DEVOTION. YEAH, THAT MAKES THIS ANIMAL STUPID, I.E., IF YOU ARE AN SOB.

Hey, quickly, squirt some Raid on "smiles are free" - and we'll be forever free off this pest.

Your reducing animals as far below yourself in importance when they are not. There have been controversy's on the subjects you mention in your post also, Apparently you are unable to open your narrow mind to the fact that people care about a wide range of subjects. My feeling is your wanting all the subjects to be about you. Another example of someone blogging just to type and press enter.No thought needing intelligence just un original heard that before blabber

TO I.A and everyone else that doesnt think of this as a BIG DEAL or saying why arent you so upset about the other topics! I am but this is not about that! do you have no heart?? This or innocent animals who dont want to do ANYTHING but please there owners. PEOPLE like that are just plain SICK and CRAZY! dog are mans and womans best friend and to get your pleasure off on seeing them kill eachother and torturing them and drowning them is just not NORMAL! ofcourse no one wants war or world hunger! and there are things going on to help and prevent that, but nothing goes on to really try and prevent this! Dogs dont have a voice to be heard so I will be that voice and if you dont want to hear about it then your on the wrong blog so GET OUT!
