Vick -- Out of the Doghouse "Any Day"

1/30/2009 4:56 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Michael VickMichael Vick is just days away from the sweet smell of freedom -- the kind you find at a half-way house.

Vick's lawyer told a Virginia bankruptcy judge this morning he expects Vick to be released to a halfway house "any day" -- which means he could be out from behind bars several months before the end of his 23-month prison sentence at Leavenworth.

Vick could end up serving the rest of the term in Newport News, Va.

The Federal Bureau of Prisons would not confirm the early release plans, but his lawyer seems pretty damn sure of himself.

Think he has plans for the Super Bowl?

Unlike in 'The Grinch That Stole Christmas' I don't think it is possible to grow a heart - not when you are an ignorant, evil, torturous, sociopath. He wasn't just an extremely talented idiot that spent his time fighting dogs - he tortured and killed the dogs in heinous ways..... All you have to do is read the stories of the rescued dogs that people have taken in to realize what a monster Vick really is. At the very least he was somebody that took a gift from God and shared no good with anyone, he only perpetuated evil. What a waste of a human being.

The sad truth is that a guy can beat up his girlfriend and get less time than Vick did. I think Vick's sentence was just, I'm just saying that there should be tougher sentences for assult on people.

I think Vick should be like any other convicted felon. If he can get a job, she should be able to work, including in the NFL.

Lighten up you fools. Michael Vic should have raw chop meat hung from his testicles and then the cages of his pit bulls animal prison should be opened for feeding time!!!! Let's see how fast the famous QB can run now!! Maybe he'll be able to run faster without his man hood! Somthing should be taken from that animal abuser. People who abuse animals are also known for abusing women and children. Anyone want to fess up??? Let's see how many chics he gets without his MAN BERRIES the fricxkin' loser! I'm sure Mr. Vic was busy doing it doggy style in prison. How ironic is that??? What goes around comes around! On behalf of all his inocent dogs......"YOU REAP WHAT YOU SEW"!

I cannot believe some of the comments on here and I have to agree with the majority GET OFF THE RACE CRAP....he is a sociopath or close to it..and all of you who think it is okay to do what he did and "pay for it" how do you pay for being so uncaring about life (any life) that you think you can kill dogs that under perform..maybe the NFL should have "punishment"for the players who underperform..maybe electrocution or water boarding??? slamming their heads together or against the goal posts or maybe some of you guys have some other suggestions for the "heros or role models" in the sports fields?? What do y'all think??? Killers are killers does it matter who you kill??? This was not a spur of the moment anger issue it is premediatated and color does not make a difference have a great day MV and may you receive everything that is planned for you in the Karmic universe in a timely fashion.

Keep on fighting the dog's!! and i love dog's and animal, and people, but we still hurt each other, like i said people are ignorrant, If you love your dog, then love your dog, If you fight your dog ,then fight your dog, but if you really want to help somebody then help the people on the street that don't have anything!!! you worry about saving the world but you don't do anything but destroy it, we all better find god before he finds us, worry about what we need to be worrying about in stop worrying about somebody else's wrong doing.

Michael is evil and must never step on a professional field ever again. I'm sure PETA will assure that! After He threw harmless dogs into the pits to train pit bulls, instead of giving them to shelters, he killed them. He must be destroyed for killing harmless, loving, animals!

14. Really? Is it just the hateful people that post on these things?? Forgiveness and second chances people.

It's the hateful people that do the things to innocent animals that Vick did. Tell me, how do the dogs he tortured, killed and trained to fight to the death get a second chance. ANYONE who would do what Vick did doesn't deserve a second chance, You know he put a "pet" dog in the fighting ring for his enjoyment of watching the kill, right? He is one sick you know what and he deserves just what he gave his dogs.

Q    

Go ahead Vick---sign with an NFL team...any GM of any Team that shows an interest will be so picketed by PETA they wont know what hit them...they'll show up at their office, their homes, their kids schools, their country clubs, they'll harass the GM until the Vick idea just drifts away and ends up in Canada.

Not wanted here and PETA will bring the pressure...you'll see...aint a GM in the business that will want the publicity or the personal harassment.

post script: #37 de la Juan---seek professional help or English as a Second Language lesson, even if English is supposed to be your first language. Good Grief sir, now that Obama is President it will be fashionable to speak English and make sense.
