Michael Vick Kills Pit Bulls? by Eric Nielsen 7.18.07
After reading the indictment I think Vick's career may be over if convicted (and the feds have a 95% conviction rate). It seems like the mass media is glossing over some of the harsher details of the indicment so here are some stats that go beyond the headbands and t-shirts created for Bad Newz Kennels.
The indictment says Vick developed the animal fighting venture's pool of pit bulls by testing the fighting prowess of dogs within the venture, and destroying or otherwise disposing of dogs not selected to stay with the ongoing animal fighting venture. It's noted that Vick was a participant in killing 8 dogs that did not do well in testing. They were killed by various methods, including hanging, drowning, and slamming at least one dog's body to the ground. The indictment also states that Vick's partners killed numerous other dogs by electrocution and shooting. Jesus was treated better on the cross.
The indictment also alleges that Vick was at about 23 dog fights with purses up to $26,000. It's hard to root for someone on the field knowing that this stuff is a persons hobby. The Falcon
