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...

Enjoying a BBQ? Hopefully, it wasn't dog meat.

Who Cares?    

He killed some stupid dogs, who cares? Could they score touchdowns? Could they run a 4.2 40 yard dash? i don't think so. People treat dogs like humans when they aren't, they are just animals.

Stuiped this has nothing to bo with GWB or the war. You go protest. So it makes it ok just cause there is a war. Also, what woman would want an animal killer.

HE IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE HORRIBLE TORTURE AND KILLING OF INNOCENT DOGS! WE ALL HAVE PETS THAT WE CONSIDER OUR "FRIENDS" "BABIES" AND "MEMBERS OF OUR FAMILIES" HOW CAN ANY OF US ALLOW HIM TO BE REWARDED WITH OUR ATTENDANCE AT ANY OF HIS FUTURE GAMES? THE WORLD IS FILLED WITH SO MUCH PAIN AND SUFFERING BUT I ABSOLUTELY DRAW THE LINE AT WHAT THIS ------------ANIMAL-------------NAMED MICHAEL VICK HAS DONE. HE IS ALLOWED TO WAKE UP ,BREATHE, AND HAVE A LIFE EVERY DAY WHICH HE DOES NOT DESERVE TO DO. DO YOU NOT THINK THAT ALL OF THOSE DEAD DOGS WOULD NOT LIKE TO BE ABLE TO BE DOING THE SAME?

Mr Ick would still be killing and torturing innocent dog's if he did get caught. He should not be allowed to be within 100 miles of any dog.

yeah no    

a) I would hardly call his house in Suffolk, VA "sprawling". It's a McMansion at best. It's no bigger than a lot of the other upper middle class homes around the Tidewater area. The neighbor’s house is actually pretty close to his on the cul de sac.

b) To "Enough is Enough" PETA has not pursued Vick any further. In fact, according to my friends in the local news, there was only one protester outside Vick's home the day he was set to return, and that lone protester was a Bible thumper... not an animal rights activist. Of course, it's not surprising to find the completely uninformed in the TMZ comment section (and yes I realize the irony before you start flame-balling me).

When will this poor man's debt be paid? I've seen murderers OF PEOPLE get better treatment than this man. I love animals, too and hate for them to be harmed or brutalized. But this is becoming old, now. Get off the man's back. You ruined his career and everything else over the dogs. What more do you want the guy to do - commit suicide? Would that make you people happy?

YES! LET THE PIECE OF CRAP COMMIT SUICIDE---AT LEAST HE WOULD BE ABLE TO DETERMINE HOW HIS LIFE WOULD END AND I AM SURE HE WOULD DO IT QUICKLY AND WOULD NOT SUFFER. HE MADE A MISTAKE? HE MADE IT MANY TIMES OVER MORE THAN ONCE. THE ONLY MISTAKE WAS THAT HE WAS EVER BORN--HE HAS CONTRIBUTED NOTHING GOOD TO SOCIETY AND NEVER WILL. IF HE TRIES TO REDEEM HIMSELF IT IS ONLY SO ---------HE----------------BENEFITS----------NOT BECAUSE HE HAS A CONSCIENCE. IF HE HAD ONE HE NEVER WHAT HAVE DONE WHAT HE DID!

To the idiot who wanted to know if a bunch of "dumb dogs" could score touchdowns or run the 40 in 4.2 seconds-

Actually, I'm sure you could train them to do exactly that and you wouldn't have to pay them as much. Service animals do even more extraordinary things like being the eyes and ears of their owners. Dogs have rescued people from fires. I seriously hope that when you are getting the stuffing beaten out of you someday someone decides not to help you because they have a football game to watch and want to see their teams "score touchdowns" and run fast. They'll decide you're just an idiot and your life has no value anyway so it's OK to let the person torture you to death because football is more important.
