In Response To: Is Michael Vick a Psychopath?

I do not know a lot about PETA, but it seems the organization is one that requires occasional celebrity cases to promote its cause and to keep itself in the news. It is slanderous for PETA to assert publicly that Michael Vick's "behavior seems to fit the established profile of antisocial personality disorder." The short story is, Mr. Vick's mental health is simply none of PETA's business.

I am concerned by the Post's question: "Is Vick a psychopath?" I ask rhetorically: What reader can answer this with any authority?

A more appropriate question might be: Should the Commissioner of the NFL allow Michael Vick the opportunity to resume his NFL career? This gets closer to the heart of whether "time served" in this circumstance should suffice. If Mr. Vick has violated an NFL ethics policy by his actions, then I think he's relinquished his privilege to play in the NFL.
