Michael Vick

Michael Vick the Atlanta Falcons quarterback and all around asshole dog killer agreed to plead guilty to federal conspiracy charges next Monday. Michael face a possible five years prison term and a fine of $250,000 when he is sentence next week. Vick’s attorney Billy Martin issue the following statement:

After consulting with his family over the weekend, Michael Vick asks that I announce today that he has reached an agreement with federal prosecutors regarding the charges pending against him. Mr. Vick has agreed to enter a plea of guilty to those charges and to accept full responsibility for his action and the mistakes he has made. Michael wishes to apologize again to everyone who has been hurt by this matter.

The reason for pleading is to avoid more serious federal charges that would most likely result after the grand jury convene next week. Two of Vick’s partners in the illegal dogfighting ring have said he helped kill dogs that didn’t fight well at his property in Virginia.

It’s time to send this dog killer to prison. If we were able to send Paris Hilton to jail for 20 or so days we should send Vick to prison for five years. And because the NFL is all about money, Vick will still have a job to go to even if it’s with another team. An NFL general manager had the following to say:

Teams may say one thing publicly. But if he gets out of jail, we’ll all be looking at Vick hard. We’re all whores in football. You know the saying. We’d sign an ax murderer if he has ability. He’ll be back. He won’t be back in Atlanta probably but he’ll be back in professional football. You can count on it.

Got to love the NFL, the place that hires people based totally on talent. I bet the NFL would still have hired O.J. Simpson back after that double killing trial he was involved in, if he wasn’t old.
