Vick

Scores with PETA

10/2/2007 4:59 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


1002_michael_vick_getty-1PETA announced today that Michael Vick, the embattled Atlanta Falcons quarterback who plead guilty to dog fighting charges, completed an eight-hour class in empathy and animal protection. A little late, no?

Vick took the course at PETA's Norfolk, Virginia headquarters on September 18, was given home study materials, and came back a third time to take a test. PETA is asking the NFL to make empathy training mandatory for all players.

If you would like to repair your public image following an embarrassing federal trial, you can find all the materials at PETA.org.

You know I didn't like what Mike did, but I'm gonna give him props for trying to fix it.

Some of you are just stupid. Jump on the bad black man. Nothing he did directly affected the NFL. Now cheating affects the outcome of games but who cares about that. Or that six white adults raped and tourchered a black woman in WV for six days, and that still has been kept quiet. Get over Vick, He made a mistake paying for it, and is trying to get past it. Mr
Charlie won't let it go.

He is a lazy, joint toking, racist jerk - plus a C quarterback @ best - no arm, far too many INT's.

Dadi, I think you are the stupid one. A mistake is leaving your keys in the car. A mistake is putting milk in your coffee instead of cream.

Running an illegal dog fighting operation for SIX years is NOT a mistake. That's a way of life.

PETA makes it clear that they did this to educate a high-profile person and that they still want him to receive a long time in jail and never go near any animals. I'm glad they are proving themselves to be rationale instead of the overly-aggressive, crazy group they are often labeled as.

Just so that we're clear dadi, there is a code of ethics in the NFL and Vick violated them. He also lied directly to the commissioner and the owner of the Falcons. He's sick, demented and stupid.

Just goes to show your intelligence level Dadi. You've put the same message up 3 or 4 times now. Obviously you have nothing worthwhile to say, just keep repeating the same drivel over and over and over and over again.
