Should Michael Vic Be Allowed to Have a Pet Dog?
Who do you think of when you think animal cruelty, particularly dog fighting?
Michael Vic, the NFL star convicted of nothing other than dog fighting.
As ironic as this may sound, Michael Vic wants to get a pet dog.
Let me repeat.
Michael Vic WANTS A PET DOG.
Notice, the interviewer asks him
I’ve heard that you’re someone who loves animals. Can you describe the mindset is like of someone who loves dogs still allows them to be treated in that way?
Michael vic’s response:
I hate to use the culture as an excuse but, um, it is what it is and that’s what happened and that’s what I thought about it when I was growing up.
According to Mr.Vic’s rationale, if I go rob a store, I can just say “it is what it is” and blame my “culture” and my “parents” for all my wrong doings.
Ok, cynicism aside..
Sure, Michael Vic did wrong. For his own PROFIT and entertainment, he let dogs fight, suffer, and die. But we have to admit, that Michael Vic voluntarily pleaded guilty and admitted guilt in front of everyone on national television.
Now, you be the judge..
Is he a reformed man and should we, as society, be forgetting and forgiving, and allow Mr.Vic to have a dog to reform his ways?
Is he still a criminal should stay from any animals as far away as possible?
