Michael Vick and Dog Fighting

I was browsing the internet today, and came across this disturbing story:

Let me first say that I'm not completely against dog fighting, per se. While I'm not a fighter, myself, I'm not one to tell another dog he can't earn a living. But this seems just seems like wanton exploitation of my brethren and I don't think these dogs wanted to fight, but were made to. This Michael Vick is a bad person:

"Vick himself participated in the killings of eight dogs in April, according
to the indictment. The animals were killed "by various methods, including
hanging, drowning and slamming at least one dog's body to the ground," the
indictment said."

Look at the picture. I think I see some cockapoos in the cage. That's just not right. We cockapoos aren't fighters; we're much better at being house dogs, sleeping, being chased, eating, and maybe a little light wrestling for fun.

I don't want you doing any fighting. I worry about you. If you see that Michael Vick coming, RUN the other way.

Hey dude, you look like a strong, healthy cockapoo. I'd like for you to come live with me, here in southern Virginia. How would you like to belong to a famous football player?

Your pal,
Michael Vick

Those there dogs mentioned in the article, boo hoo hoo, I'm cryin over dem - NOT. They's a bunch a sissies dat got chewed up good by real dogs like me. Notin but fair fights, Michael Vick give us a chance to show what we got. I love it here and Michael done got a bad rap.

If you was a real dog, tommy, you'd come down here and go a couple a rounds wit me.
