Michael Vick, Dog Fighter, Indicted

NFL star Michael Vick was indicted by a federal grand jury Tuesday on charges of sponsoring a dogfighting operation so grisly the losers either died in the pit or sometimes were electrocuted, drowned, hanged or shot. The Atlanta Falcons quarterback and three others were charged with competitive dogfighting, procuring and training pit bulls for fighting and conducting the enterprise across state lines. If convicted, Vick and the others — Purnell A. Peace, Quanis L. Phillips and Tony Taylor — could face up to six years in prison, $350,000 in fines and restitution.
Dog fighting. Why would someone risk a lucrative career in the NFL for illegal activity like that? I just don't understand some people.

i've been following this since i first heard of it.
there was always something about vick that rubbed me the wrong way.
this just confirms my instincts.
this has the potential to ruin his nfl career and personally i hope it does.
he never possessed the leadership qualities it takes to lead a nfl team, and this explains alot.

You can take the thug out of the hood, but you can't take the hood out of the thug.

Enjoy prison Mike.
