You’d think that if you were one of the highest paid NFL players in the country you wouldn’t get your jollies from watching two dogs kill each other, but I guess you never know.  Michael Vick was recently sentenced to a 23 month jail sentence for his involvement in an underground dogfighting ring.

Although Vick had some hard-hitting supporters in his corner, such as Hank Aaron, Atlanta Mayor Shirley Franklin and the pastor of his church,  US. District Judge Henry E. Hudson still had little sympathy. During the sentencing Judge Hudson stated, “I’m convinced it was not a momentary lack of judgment on your part. You were a full partner.” And when Vick apologized to the court and his family, the judge shot back, “You need to apologize also to the millions of young people who look up to you.”

Although he could have been sentenced to up to five years, the Federal sentencing guidelines recommended a sentence of 12 to 18 months, so all in all Vick received a pretty firm sentence. 

You know, I usually close out my posts with something witty and light, but there are no witty or light comments to be made here. One can only hope that this helps put a stop to the horrific “sport” that is dogfighting, and teaches Michael Vick a lesson he won’t ever forget.
