Saluting with misty eyes
While I do not think this type of "sport" or "entertainment" should even be allowed in non-polite circles, I do not believe that the death penalty is any more warranted than if he poisoned the neighbor's chihuahua or shot the parakeet on the other side.
I DO feel that, if convicted, Mr. Vick should be sentenced to the maximum allowed for the state statures for animal cruelty.
One unfortunate side effect to this entire situation, though, is that it is going to more than likely cost a very fine quarterback (and probably one of the best in the game) his career. As bad as it sounds, it would have been better had he been doing drugs in the back of a school bus with a bunch of 17 year olds. That would be more socially acceptable, and would have made him a bigger star.
Welcome to modern America.
What would you attempt to do...if you knew you could not fail?.
