Too bad he didn't get more years, and I hope he never gets out early.

So Vick gets 23 months for dog-fighting, and this dude gets 6 years.

Guess he needed to get better attorneys.

Where's everybody? All those who thought Vick got too much time and was unfairly treated, blah, blah, blah. Let's see what they say about this one.

They already "overlooked" the people who recently got over 100 years.

They are sending a dogfighter to prison for being in a dogfight? No wonder the military is having trouble recruiting. How can a fighter pilot be expected to do their job if they cannot get into a dogfight? This is messed up. Maybe I should have read the article so I would understand...

No doubt we can thank vick and his singing like a canary to save his own ass for this bust. There are probably more in the process of having a case built against them thanks to vick's loud mouth.

As much as I'd like to think Vick was responsible for snitching, apparently this bust went down in March 2007 - before Bad Newz Kennels was raided.

Vick was indicted in July 2007. He very well could have been running his mouth trying to avoid jail a few months before his actual indictment. As a matter of fact wasn't he lying about his involvement for quite some time prior to his arrest?

Yeah, a lot! He wasn't there, i was his family's fault, nothing was REALLY going on, it was all vicious gossip....

He also bragged that he'd beat the charges, because "The feds can't prove anything against me." Then, they had to bring in TRUCKS to take away all he evidence.

The Surry bust was on 4-25-07(the Cincinnati bust was 3-2007). From that point, until he plead, he maintained that he wasn't involved. I really don't think he snitched on the guy from OH.

Too bad, I might develop sympathy if he told on other dogfighters.

Any IDIOT knows this was nothing but a set up to bring Michael down. It was nothing more than a devious federal conspiracy mixed in with a healthy dose of institutional racism.

I had not heard anything about this person who was recently convicted and sentenced for dogfighting, who is he and what did he get convicted of besides the dogfighting, and how does it relate to Vick.?
