First the NFL gave convicted felon Michael Vick the Presidential Suite at the Pro Bowl hotel in Hawaii. Now the Mayor Pro-Tem of the Dallas, Texas has presented Vick with a Key to the City. Wow, Vick must really be a changed man.
The “old” Michael Vick was known for torturing and killing helpless animals. “Dog fighting” does not begin to address his atrocities. That term omits the dogs he used as jump ropes or the females that had their teeth filed down to nubs or yanked out so they could not possibly fight back when being restrained in the breeding pens. Vick and his pals, needed a ready supply of more and more pups to raise so they could cheer as those dogs had their throats ripped out while “dog fighting”.
The “new” Michael Vick has done what was ordered by the courts, the NFL or his PR machine, which is working overtime to make him palatable to society. His bankruptcy included a $90,000 car for his girlfriend (not his wife) that his creditors had to eat. Now, he is back making millions playing NFL football.
Many of you may be impressed that Vick has apologized to his team and the rest of us on 60 Minutes. But he has never apologized to his victims. Some that survived his cruelty and sadism are alive today. They are crippled, traumatized and living with the physical and emotional scars he inflicted. Vick was given the chance to apologize in Dallas on Friday. Long time Dallas radio personality, Richard Hunter, who adopted one of Vick’s dogs, comforted Vick after he received his honor from the City of Dallas. Watch how he and his posse handled it.
Of course you are free to forgive, forget, kiss the feet of, idolize, elevate to hero status and cheer on this degenerate. I question your humanity, but it’s a free country. Many of you still admire OJ Simpson.
Richard Hunter possesses something that is missing in Michael Vick. Something that Vick will never have, because Vick is what he is, an evil sociopath who was welcomed by many Philadelphia and now by the Mayor Pro-Tem of Dallas.
