Dear TheRealMIA: My sister was hit and left by the side of the road to die. The guy that hit her got 12-years of which he served 2. I completely understand. I forgave the guy. I think the difference here is intent.. and it's not the necessarily the value of the dog's life vs. human life. I think people want to punish of the soulessness of the act.They want to kill the monster inside, It is easy to say such things because, in light of his acts, he is no longer viewed AS human. That's my take on it anyway.

PAHairston wties: In general, white folks have always loved their animals more than they love black folks.

Oh stop. And what facts do you base that on? Are you standing outside on a corner conducting an impromptu White People Poll? Just exactly how many White People did you interview to arrive at this indictment of the White Race?

@ NotJustanothername
I'm a thug for believing in something called fairness? Take a trip out to a slaughterhouse and see how those animals are treated. Go watch someone hunt or travel to some parts of Africa where people poach and do heinous things to animals for money, or how about some places in Asia where dog meat is eaten. Until you go to any of those places shut ya mouth. Mike Vick served 2 years nearly over some animals while there are people who molest children that get only 8 months and get out in 6. Mike Vick shouldn't of been in jail to begin with. Prison is for actual criminals not petty crimes. He made a mistake, so what. Where any humans or children harmed...NO then prison time isn't warranted. Another thing are you retarded, how do you misspell my name when its on the screen, do you have trouble reading?

I believe he has paid his debt and hopefully learned a lesson. He should never be allowed to play professional football again. He is not someone I would want my child to look up to. Mike go back to the ghetto. You blew the only chance you had to get out. Do you know how many college football players would have loved the opportunities you had and be good role models? Just go away.

JUST WANTED TO SAY THAT I DO NOT WANT TO SEE THIS PUCK IN THE NFL OR ANY PROFESSIONAL HIGHLIGHTED POSITION. HE IS NO LONGER DESERVANT OF ANY PRIVALEDGE. HE HAS BEEN GIVEN A SLAP ON THE WRIST, WHICH IS SICKENING WITHIN ITSELF, AND SHOULD BE MADE AN EXAMPLE OF FOR EVERYONE WHO PARTICIPATES IN THIS PRACTICE AND BEHAVIOR. ASPCA NEEDS TO PUT THE HAMMER, AND I MEAN HAMMER, TO THESE PUCKS OF THE WORLD.

No second changes for dog killer Vick, not in football anyway. Show your remorse by working at a shelter cleaning up dog crap. You no good piece of sh.t. Hope someone beats the hell out of you.

Seriously, I do not understand these people... they pay so much money to eat their precious meat and if you have not noticed those animals are tortured for you people to eat them and then Vick goes and did this terrible thing and he goes to jail paid for what he did.. which I thought it was ridiculous for him to spend all that time in jail is not that he killed a human being. I love animals and they should not be treated bad, but Why do you want him to be dead???? He is human and humans make mistakes + he has a family...What is wrong with you people???

WELCOME HOME MR. VICK!! YOUR FANS & THE NFL AWAIT YOUR RETURN!!!

p.s. how many children's lives were potentially saved from these pitbull attacks? i'd say he did these children a favor, there are less pitbulls in VA to attack/maul/kill innocent little chilren! Get over it!

Are you stupid, slow or retarded? Why don't you take your own advice, clearly homeschooling was not your parents best choice! Point being: "for those of you that don't care about NO dogs", stupid is as stupid does!!

I'm in full support of this partially eductaed felon getting back to work. There are plenty of panhandling positions available at the downtown Atlanta Greyhound station. He'll be able to find it. All his equally stupid friends work there now.
