It Was Wrong

"I let myself down, not being out on the football field, being in a prison bed, in a prison bunk, writing letters home, you know. That wasn't my life. That wasn't the way that things was supposed to be. And all because the so-called culture that I thought was right, that I thought it was cool. and I thought it was fun, and it was exciting at the time. It all led to me laying in a prison bunk by myself with no one to talk to but myself."

"And regardless of what it was - and why I was driven, you know, by what was going on, whether it was because of the competition or whatever it may have been, it was wrong,"

Oh please, let me cry for this animal killer.....

The NFL and the Eagles are now synonymous with "Cruelty to Animals." It's official. Track the Vick supporters to locate the sociopaths. The NFL is a sick and twisted place, knee-deep in the undiluted toxic trash of greed, for which there can be NO rehabilitation.

Humans wield incredible power of animals. They can choose to be benevolent or cruel. Cruelty to animals reveals a corrupt soul, one who victimizes the weak and shows no compassion. It is hard for me to forgive someone like Michael Vick because I believe deep down he is a corrupt soul who tortures the weak.

There are those who like animals and those who do not. That's not what this is about. It is about the treatment of the powerless by the powerful. Michael Vick abused that power in the worst possible way.
