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?

Listen if you can do those kind of things to animals, the next step is a human being. He needs to serve a whole hell of a lot more time in jail. I say he should get what he gave, put him in a ring and make him fight for his life.

People keep saying they wish Vick was put in a ring or a pit with a bunch of dogs and see who comes out alive.

LOL, he has been in many pits and rings with vicious dogs bred for fighting. He is the only one left standing.

he will be in the NFL before the next season....as a starting QUARTERBACK!!

A guy from Vick's Neighborhood    

Mike Vick had a great family when he grew up. His parent's are caring people and Mike's action does not reflect his rearing as child. The man made a hugh mistake and lost everything so back off and let the man live. And for the animal lover's, I love animals too but people need love too. How can you care so much for an animal but will walk pass a human hungry and dying in the street and don't. I support your cause 100% but care for your fellow man too. Mike Vick will be home soon and support him in his comeback because he has family and kids that need his support. The entire East End of Newport News has his back. Love animals but love people too.

Just keep in mind that this man and his friends killed at least one losing dog by repeatedly slamming it head-first into the ground. Seriously. And he was already a MILLIONAIRE. Heaven help us all.

#72 Do you own any animals?????? Animals to some are like children. If you don't own animals then I guess you wouldn't understand and if you do own animals then how would you feel if that was your dog?

Let me remind those who don't know or don't remember puhleese:

VICK killed dogs that could not fight and DERIVED EXTREME PLEASURE, (according to his cohorts in crime) in watching dogs get injured and/or killed.

As I understand it VICK hung approximately three dogs that did poorly in a rolling session, which lets you know if a dog is ready to be in combat. VICK and his accomplices hung the dogs by placing a nylon cord over a 2 X 4 that was nailed to two trees located next to the big shed. They, (VICK included) also drowned approximately three dogs by putting the dogs heads in a five gallon bucket of water and elaborately electrocuted one. It is also my understanding that Michael Vick placed family pet dogs into the ring with his trained pit bulls and laughed as the dogs caused major injury to the pets at Bad Newz Kennels.

Vick does not deserve to get into the NFL. What Michael Vick did id unconscionable; however he is WITHOUT CONSCIENCE. He did not just take part in Dog Fighting, but he enjoyed the torturing of animals! There is nothing fixable or redeeming about Michael Vick.

People are so stupid an they know so much, first of all he was not fight ing any dog's all he was doing was giving one of his friends money who was protecting his estate, his friend got caught up in they took vick down with them. Vick got the worst of it because of his celebrity status I know vick personally and he's still that good kid that he's allway's been calm in quiet and love the game of football just like his cusin arron brooks, In the rest of his family they are all good people downtown newport news evreryday all day we use to play football, all day in our youth day's at the boys club. So you know what it is if anybody that reads this that know Vick, we know the real truht in we know what it is.The media will ruin anybody's life especially with celebrity status it does'nt matter what color you are.

Max, I can't watch that ASPCA commercial either. That commercial speaks valumes for Animal Cruelty. People that support VIck please know that he has hurt animals everywhere with what he has done. Also please understand that there was a headline recently on MSNBC that read "Dog Attacks push Cities to ban Pit Bulls." It is because of people like Michael Vick that have no regard for animals. Vick is in a monstrous category of his own. Vick definitely trained and had his dogs trained to kill other dogs. As mentioned before, he and people like him are also responsible for the bad name on pits! Ban the Vicks of the world and make the penalties against fighting dogs etc. stricter. The retarded PEOPLE who are in it to make money and have no concern for the dogs or other people. In addition the laws against Dog fighting are not tough enough. This crime in itself breeds bad owners, so something needs to be done more than is being done today In my opinion, Vick got a slap on the wrist for the Animal Cruelty he inflicted to include torture and killing of innocent dogs! He was a role model for so many kids as well. What an offense! Please know that anyone that thinks he deserves to be back in the NFL is basically laughing in the face of Animal Cruelty.
