A brain damaged beast who enjoyed the screaming pains of Georgia while her teeth were being extracted. I can't in my wildest imagination think of the horrendous pain she suffered but thank God, she survived this torture and is able to function as best as she can.To do this to an innocent and helpless animal indicates the evil,vile,and sadistic nature of Vick which adds up to zoosadism.
Amen!

Why does Michael Vick deserve a pass?
If he was the greatest player to ever take the field it would just be wrong to reinstate him no matter how much time he has served for his crime.
To allow him to play in the NFL would be a mistake with many repercussions.
No, I am not saying that Michael Vick will start torturing and killing humans, but allowing him to be a respected player in the NFL would be sending the wrong message to our children and the rest of the world.
Football players are not gods. They do not deserve anything above what an ordinary person does.
You can not preach goodness to children and let an example of pure evil become an American idol as a NFL player.
Would you have your children worship the devil because he says he has changed his ways?
Evil is still evil, you can't put a NFL jersey on it to dress it up and let it assume a heroic status.
The youth of America need good role models.
No one would let John Gacy or Jeffry Dahmer play in the NFL and make millions no matter how well they could play.
Why should Michael Vick be any different?
Please consider it an act of mercy that he was apprehended and punished the way he was. He has a chance to turn his life around and better himself, but does not deserve to do it on a national stage in the presence of impressionable young people.
Good point./ And what they DON'T seem to see that it it better in the LONG run if Goodell stops allowing these players to get away with bad behavior. It could save their careers and their lives along with the countless lives of the people who idolize them

PLEASE SEND THE RIGHT MESSAGE TO THE FOOTBALL WORLD THAT WE WILL NOT TOLERATE ANIMAL ABUSERS. WE WILL NOT REWARD THEM WITH FORTUNE AND FAME. WE WILL NOT ALLOW THEM TO FORGET WHAT THEY'VE DONE. THE CHILDREN OF OUR COUNTRY NEED TO KNOW THAT ABUSE OF THIS KIND IS NOT ONLY ILLEGAL BUT IMMORAL AND NOT TO BE TOLERATED.

Vick was given a sweet deal for helping. Helping himself. Betrayal must sting to his friends.

It's time to send a message that No One is allowed to abuse animals. While I realize that Michael Vick has been penalized, it has not been enough. Perhaps if abusers were forced to endure the type of treatment they have handed out, this cruelty would stop.

You are right Adam. I really fear for our youth that honor professional sports because their parentswill tell them this behavior is ok. was there not enough to fear already?
