Mike Vick's Home Confinement -- One Lucky Dog

5/28/2009 9:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

With the sun poking gently through the clouds, a calm lake glistening in the background, and majestic trees swaying in the breeze, Michael Vick is somehow finding a way to ride out his nightmarish "home confinement" sentence at his sprawling Virginia estate.

Michael Vick -- launch photos

TMZ obtained several photos of Vick -- who was found guilty of charges related to brutally slaughtering innocent dogs in 2007 -- enjoying a Memorial Day weekend BBQ in his personal waterfront detention center. Among the festivities, the ankle-bracelet sportin' prisoner found time to steal a sunset smooch with one of his baby mamas.

Vick still has to serve two more months of this hell. At least he gets conjugal visits...

Not only did he FINANCE a dog fighting ring-he PARTICIPATED in the killing of dogs-he admitted that. So time will tell if he's turned his life around. He didn't make a MISTAKE as people like to say-he knowingly participated in a brutal, lowlife, illegal operation. And WHY did he do that? For money? NO-he didn't need any money-he did it because he's got some sick sense of 'entertainment'. He didn't LOSE his career-he THREW his career away. He did 1 1/2 years in prison and I'm glad-he deserved every bit of that time.

He needs to be living in the same conditions as those dogs did - and for years not months! He also needs to be neutered!

Give me a break people! It is a sad thing what he did to those dogs, BUT he got more time than people who abuse children or rape women! Not to mention the preacher's wife who murdered her husband and spent 6 months in jail - this is insanity!

I'm all for giving people 2nd chances. However, how does a person file for bankruptcy and still get to keep his "sprawling Virginia estate" on the water? Guess who paid his debts and still are paying his debts? Taxpayers. Every time someone defaults on a debt the company in question writes it off as bad debt and gets a tax credit. Eventually someone pays for it through bank bailouts, increased fees, higher taxes, etc. That's what I have a problem with. If he had a conscience (which as far as I'm concerned he doesn't until I see him prove otherwise) he wouldn't live in his sprawling Virginia estate. He would sell everything he could and do his best to repay what he can and do something meaningful. When I see him act like a human being, I'll consider him to be one.

Vick is a disgusting piece of crap. And so are those who have done, and are continuing to do, the same. Including those who watch such vile "sports".

I wouldn't mind the home-confinement if he was at the end of a chain staked into the ground and was just out of reach of food and water.

My vote is for Mr. Vick to spend 2 -3 years, ON A DAILY BASIS, in an animal shelter, watching the abused, unkempt, animals come in through the front door, and not even have a chance for a better life, instead, leaving through the back door in a black plastic bag, and dumped in the nearest land fill. Perhaps when he sees this isn't "SPORT", then he'll realize his past was more than a "mistake".

Until then, he should be banned from football. Period.

Do you think Michael Vick truly cares about what any of you think? I know I don't. That's one thing I admire about him, is the fact that he seems unfazed by the enormity of the situation. He served his time, now he's being given a second chance. I hope he makes the most of it. I can't wait to see him back in the NFL.

As an aside, Michael, if you have the urge to partake in any activites that may be deemed "questionable" by the public, please do so in a sub rosa manner. You will be under a microscope from this day forward, so just know that people are waiting for you to make a mistake. Do not do anything that may imperil your freedom, and be discreet with the choices that you make. Good luck!
