Michael Vick

My Kids DESERVE

a New Dog

NFL star Michael Vick wants to own a dog again -- and five years after his conviction for illegal dog fighting, he can legally get one -- but the question is ... should he?

The Philadelphia Eagles QB was on Piers Morgan's show last night, and said he would like to get a dog for his kids.

After Vick served 19 months in federal prison ... he was banned from owning dogs for 3 years. That ban is about to expire, and Vick thinks having a dog could be "therapeutic" ... for his children. He told Piers, "I can't take that dream away from them. That's selfish on my behalf."

One positive? Vick says he won't let his kids get a pit bull.

Still, we gotta ask ...

Yes he did his time, but that does not mean that we need to say he is a good person and deserves anything. He and his thug gangstas used to torture ie set on fire, electrocute , drown , hang a live dog on a rope so the others could attack it , starve them.....ect...Mind you now this is a guy who is a multi millionaire. THIS WAS HIS HOBBIE!!!!!!! WHAT KIND OF A PERSON DOES THAT AS A FN HOBBIE!!!!! he got caught is the only reason he stopped. Vick is a evil vile POS!

Depends on the type of dog. If it is not a breed suited for fighting, I see no wrong with it. ****zu, ****erspaniel, whatever-the-hell-pari******on-has.

You do NOT deserve the love of a dog! 3 Years was not long enough. If you cared so little about dogs when you were being grossly abusive what makes people think you have changed, if your new puppy has an accident in your house I can only imagine what you would do to the poor thing. You do not care about animals so do not get one.

He would still be torturing and killing animals to this day if he hadn't got caught!

Animal abusers have no souls. They are dead inside.

He should never be allowed to own any animals, EVER!!!
