The suspended Atlanta Falcons quarterback could have been sentenced up to five years by District Judge Henry E. Hudson. Vick was dressed in a black-and-white striped prison suit and apologized to the court and his family.
Hudson responded, "You need to apologize to the millions of young people who looked up to you."
"Yes, sir," Vick said.
Vick acknowledged he used "poor judgment" and added, "I'm willing to deal with the consequences and accept responsibility for my actions."
Is that all he GETS? To me this is outrageous and hopefully all the animal organizations will protest this sentence.
I don't see any fines set upon him. WTF? He should have received 23 months for each innocent dog that was killed or injured beneath his armpits of violence.
What's with the word "suspended" from the Atlanta Falcons? The word should be "TERMINATED" without any future benefits from the NFL. What's up with that? Vick TERMINATED the lives of God's creatures, time to TERMINATE Vick from the pleasure of being in the NFL. Hello NFL!
Vick needs to be sentenced to any Pit Bull Rescue Agency and care for each of those precious animals as they are rescued from homes of cruelty. Perhaps Vick's meals need to be served in a dog dish and he is on all "fours" eating his dinner.
This judge DID NOT help the situation with this sentence. Heck, Vick gets to serve probably half of the 23 months anyway. Most of the people who treat animals this way ... they figure "what the heck, the sentence is light!"
Pit Bulls are a wonderful breed of animal. They love to be loved and play like another other breed. Their hearts are warm and their licks can cover an entire face. They may look intimidating, but so does Vick!
