so i was definatly at a resturants today, and a news story about fuck face was on, and some guy said “i don’t think the government should protect animals at all” i really wanted to slap the ass like wtf?!
There is only one punishment for this kind of moron. Dress him up like a dog, put him in a pit with his animals and have them tear his ass to shreds. Let’s see if we can create a sport out like this. I’d be the first in attendance.
you people need to grow up and get a life
put you in a room with him for what?? so you could wet your pants??
number 1.you people value animals more than ur families
number 2.neither of you are god or police to decide michael vick fate
number 3.grow up!!!
Oh fuck off Vegans. By that logic it’s ok to hurt dogs because dogs are carnivores. Your no better then Vick & the other morons here. You all think your better then animals. Let me dispel lie’s you sheep like to spread. Humans have an herbivores digestive system. Wrong, there is no omnivore’s digestive system. All omnivore either have a modified carnivore system (bears), or a modified herbivores digestive system (like humans). On another note our closest relative the chimp also eats meat, & I don’t mean bugs they kill, & eat monkeys & other small animals. On the topic of our k9 teeth. Gorillas only eat vegetables & there k9’s are huge. Ours are small because we don’t need them for defense. We have been omnivores for 3-4 evolutionary stages. The fact that you choose to live differently then your nature suggests a feeling of superiority to animals. It doesn’t take much for logic like that to become like Vicks. Although I do not eat red meat or in fact any fowl or mammal, I do eat fish, I also love cheese & drink milk. Eggs have too much fat so I only bake with them. The only reason I do this is I feel the way animals is slaughtered is wrong. If you eat meat you should earn it you’re self, & buying it doesn’t count. Also I do not value animals above my family, but I do value my animals as family. Also Vegans if you have dogs or cats. Then you are either hypocrites or animals abusers. Those animals are carnivores, it is wrong & un-healthy to make them eat differently. Cats don’t produce taurine without meat or meat based food they WILL go blind. On another note where do you get your vegetables? If it is famed then guess what more animals die for your salad then a steak. Farming harnesses & alters the land. It takes land animals NEED to survive, also much food is imported from countries where they practice slash & burn. Even if you food is organic & grown in some hippies back yard, that back yard was forest at one time. On another note soy reduces testosterone levels, & increases estrogen levels. So if you want to stop being wimps stop eating the shit. I am an animal first, & a human second! Signed, Biologist
Also to you morons who think he did nothing wrong. Even if you don’t care for the life of animals like god says to. The fact is as a professional athlete he signed something saying he would not have anything to do with illegal gambling. So even if he gets off he still can’t play foot ball again. Also a great man said a nation should be judged by how it treats it’s animals. Studies also show that people who can torture & kill animals ruthlessly are 90% more likely to be capable of doing the same thing to people. So it is our business. Also it is against the law, so he should be punished. I am not Buddhist, but I believe according to there beliefs if you are mean to animals intentionally for your own enjoyment you spend your after life being hurt by those animals. Basically ate alive for all eternity. But I digress according to the bible: Proverbs 12:10 – Man should care for the life of his beast, but the compassion of the wicked is cruel. So if you are a Christian, then you must admit if he doesn’t repent he will go to hell. P.S. Sorry for the second post!
Hey atheist vegan, your point is easily refutable. Farm animals are euthenized humanely on most farms, they’re strictly regulated and there are ordnances that keep them in check. Those animals aren’t ripped apart while alive then electrocuted
to death or hung like MV did. Moreover, those animals are eaten, not thrown into a dumpster after people profit from gambling from it. I would say you have really bad logic if you couldn’t figure this out and decided to post before really putting together a good argument. Go to college, buddy you’re an idiot.
Hey jackman, it’s not the value of animals it’s how they die. Getting beaten to death or died through lethal injection, there’s a huge difference. Dogs do have a more highly adaptive cognitive level than do chickens or cows. And you could probably say that more goes on in their head as they’re getting ripped apart. Everything feels pain, but crushing a bug or beating a dog to death is entirely different.
By the way, the law is deciding michael vick’s legal fate. What he did is against the law. People don’t value their animals more than their families, but take a poll and most people love animals because they do have enduring value.
I like your comment jackman, people should mind their own business. No, more like people should look out for other people or say an animal that can’t speak for itself. If you applied that logic then all those “to catch a predator” segments with pedophiles were a bad idea. We should just let people do what they want. Mind your own business, right?
Eating meat and dog fighting are two completely different things. While the killing an animal, particularly if what you say is true (which I doubt), is a sad thing in general, at least it’s being eaten. The dogs probably just got thrown in a pit somewhere, fed to eachother, or a dumpster in a trash bag.
On top of which, the killing of perfectly innocent and good dogs just because they aren’t “worthy of the pit”.
So what if someone values animals more than their own family? At least humans have the law completely on their side, there are way more of them, and if they are killed, I’m sure a baby somewhere just replaced ‘em. We’ve gutted our poor planet, so there is plenty of sense in defending what is left of it and it’s inhabitants.
No need to read your blog atheistvegan to realize that you are a compassionless, pseudo-intellectual idiot. There are different magnitudes of torture from petite psychological to something so extreme that the associated evil is incomprehensible. I’d like to blow up the picture at the top of this page and make you stare at it until some slight sense of sympathy quivers in your proud-to-be an-atheist (pretty dumb in itself) ass.
If I had a 150 million dollar contract, I’d use it to help end torture and pain to creatures of any kind. I have a pitbull that I scraped off a busy street, emaciated and scarred from fighting. No creature human or otherwise has given me so much gratitude, joy and understanding. He loves to play with everybody and every creature. He has mastered the art of forgiveness, which to me makes him more highly evolved than any human I’ve ever known. He lives up to his name …Spirit.
Have I made you sick to your stomach yet with all this gushy stuff vegan atheist? I hope so. Get a heart and a brain.
i dont think any thing should happen to vick cause hes the fastest QB in the NFL. i wouldnt care what he did if i was the owner of the falcons cause he is multy talented. and fuck the rest of yall who dont agree. i will always be a fan of vick
Plain and simple, we are all Gods creatures and deserve tp be respected. I am not a vegan, but i do respect their beliefs. No human or animal should be intentially treated with cruelty. I do beleive in the “do unto others” motto and i dont think this Vick person would appreciate the same inhumane treatment. Unfortunatley, evil such as this has no fear and he probably would not be phased with the same anguish. Very sad for him. He has no soul.
Vick IS a great athlete but he was never a good QB. He was never a GREAT human being.
No matter how many dogs he killed he’s still a great athlete and a shitty human being. He is now also an admitted felon and his actions have cost him his NFL career and proven without a doubt what a shitty human being he is.
There are a lot of great athletes that aren’t QB’s and a lot of great athletes in prison and a lot of shitty human beings in prison. Vick is all of those and will join them in prison.
I hope he enjoys playing football for his prison yard team for cigarettes and buttfucks cause he’s done in the NFL…..and I am so thankful.
FUCK YOU Vick, you are shit and we as football fans and human beings are better off without you.
Ok, this is a stupid website. If ppl think what Vick did was in any way, cool, good or something i would do, u r simply deluding urselves. I’m not the greatest fan of sports, i don’t really care if the NFL loses a good QB or not. But if Vick, after admitting his guilt, is not convicted, what lesson will be taught to all his young fans?? That killing dogs in inhumane dog-fight is a good thing and while you might be in the news for a while, you will go unpunished?? I love my family and friends above animals but i value my animals as family, if u can’t do that, then you are not worth animals. For sure, i will save a dying person before i save a dying animal, but i will not ever condone torturing an animal. Nor will i ever condone killing an animal for no reason. The same as with huans actually. I do not believe it is right to hurt a human, nor to kill one without a good reason, however if there is a good reason, i might not like it, but i can at least accept it. Humans are not better than animals, we are animals… we have simply evovled differently so that we are smarter and blah blah… i don’t really care. If u put a human against any animal that is a natural predator we would lose because they evolved to hunt, we evolved to think, so put ur brains to work and go do something useful rather than criticizing an idiot where u have no say in what happens to him.
I think it’s pathetic that people think this guy deserves to die because he supported dog fighting, yet none of you are taking to the streets to help the homeless in your neighborhood, or the starving in Asia, or the genocide in Sudan, or men you work with who beat their wives. It’s sick. While I love animals and value all life, I would sooner see a dog roasted alive than see human lives being sent to their deaths with the silent approval of society. Get your priorities straight, people.
I think that professional athletes are always let off the hook. Sould Michael Vick being going through all this? No, the media is blowing this out of the water. What about the professional athletes that are abusing the humans? I dont hear about them much anymore and quite a few have gone back to play in their professional careers. Michael Vick should have some sort of punishment but not losing his job. If there not going to take the wife beaters and sexual predators out of the leagues they should leave Michael Vick alone.
use r all a bunch of wankas who cares michael vicks a mad kunt and to that vegan fag fuk off u loser stop tryna make every 1 a retarted vegie like u meat sooooooooooooooo yummy i could live only off it
uh,agree he doesnt look nice, but out of the zillions of assholes, etc. etc. why americans always put in jail only black celebrities – simpson, jackson, vick, tyson? Never seen a Je* from wall street on trial not to say a white athlete, i wonder…
Wow. Michael Vick? I hope that dude gets raped up the ass and wakes up in a puddle of blood with a dollar pinned to his shirt. Then maybe he’ll feel REAL good about the rape posts he had in his basement. I hope he gets splashed with a bucket of AIDS and gets pegged with a side of Syphilis. Fucking ass. I wish that I could tie this dude down, dress his lil package up to look like a cat a tell three dogs to sick him. The guy is sucha piece.
to the joshua person, would you still be a fan if vick killed the closest person to you in your life? and if he was a regular person with no phyisical quarter back capabilities whatsoever, would you still think the same way?
to eeks (and the people who don’t believe that they cut animals while they are still alive) visit this website:
(Warning-this video contains graphic images depicting animal violence in slaughterhouses-not for the faint of heart)
The thing that no one is realizing here is A) Eating meat and killing dogs are 2 completely different topics. Slaughter houses put down the animals in a humaine way so that they do not suffer. The animals feel no pain whatsoever, and plus, eating meat is good for you and should not be looked past due to moral values. Are you really going to keep a cow or sheep as a pet ??? I don’t think so. and B) No matter dog, cat, animal, or human, that is fighting like this, it should be frowned upon. The fact that he did this to these poor animals is disgusting. It’s as bad a Bush sending young kids to Irag to die. But that is for a reason i guess. But my point is that killing and abusing and hurting something else in a way to benefit yourself, is wrong, plain wrong ! The reason these dogs fight one another is cause Mike assnuts gives them no choice. You put 2 pit bulls in a ring togther and they will go at it, plain and simple. Just look at that poor dog up at the top of this page. He will never have a normal life again. He will have problems until he dies. He looks so sad. I don’t know if everyone on this posting site realizes this, but dogs feel too, just like people. In my opinion, killing a dog is almost on the same level as killing a person. You should go to jail if you kill an animal and you should go to jail if you kill a person. Both can love, both feel, both need attention and care, and both deserve to live and not have that taken away from them for no reason. So to Michael Vick, clearly you weren’t held as a baby and you need to seek professional help. You make us all sick to our stomachs and you should be ashamed of yourself. If there is a hell Mike, your going there a.s.a.p. Hope you sleep well at night, you sick FUCK !
i dont kno wat the fuk u all r talking about the animals r killed in a humane way. most of u have never even been to slaughter houses. my family have been getting their meat directly from the farms since i was a baby and wen u select ur animal (goat, pig, w/e) dey wrestle it down right in front of you, take a knife, and slit its throat while it screams for their lives…. they are still screaming for at least 20 minutes after a cut throat. then if its unlucky, it’ll still be alive as u burn it with flamethrowers so that all the insects and germs on the skin will be killed. i’ve witnessed this numerous amounts of times and everytime i felt sympathy, but wtf r u supposed to do about it if its legal. so i reely dont see no difference in wat micheal vik’s doing. u ppl talk about “o at least we eat it, not throw it way lik vick”. Well do u reely think the animal gives a shit whether its body will be thrown carelessly away or cherished by being eaten by ppl with decaying amounts of fruits n vegetables in their fridge?!?! No! It jus doesnt want to die either way. u all r’nt thinking logically at all! jus on wat society thinks of morality and society’s love for dogs. i bet if micheal vick were setting up cow fights, ppl would not be calling him “piece of shit” or wanting to punch his face out for dat! Shit he could go hunting, inhumanely cut off a deer’s head, put it on his living room wall, throw away the body in a lake sumwhere, and everybody wouldn’t care as much (except maybe vegans and PETA). well u kno wat FUK IT!
@james: im very imperessed by your text…I am from germany and I heard about Michael Vick…I am just speechless…These dogs are too beat-up to live on….you can just kill them cause they are mentally disordered…pitbulls are an overbreeding..just a construct of human beeing..I can’t keep faith with it…and U are right..if there is a hell, michael vick is going there! My problem really is,that I want to help..but I would go bust..I can’t abort my feelings…I feel bad about it..
@lu: That’s bullshit !!! you’re not up to date..look at lou pearlman for example..he has to stay in prison for 30 years,just because of insurance fraud or sth….Michael Vick killed more than 100 LIFES…and has to stay in prison for less than 2 years….black or white doesn’t matter…but his punishment is too low!
Just because Vick mistreated those Dogs doesn’t make it right for him to be kilked or tortured etc. As Ghandi said “An eye for an makes us all blind”
I am a huge Vick fan but I still know what he did was unforgiveable.
From a fan point of view I hope he can play again as he was the most exciting player I have ever seen.
HAHA,what? some of you people have to be fucking kidding.. AM I BEING PUNKED?!
I love how since hes a QB,its suddenly OK. I love how since hes famous,its ok.
And i also love how someone brought up the fact that hes black,as if that has anything to do with killing living creatures in a brutal and sadistic fashion.
Look,retard,if a white qb,or a white COMMON PERSON,did that,id infact feel the exact amount of disgust towards that person.
Im pretty much shocked that some of you people think “wez jus haturs”. No,we actually are worried that if this dude isnt made example of,there could be a serious violent outbreak in animal abuse,which is already extremely common,sadly. It doesnt matter who this douchebag is,is only matters what he did. And also,its apparent it was a “lapse in judgement” or a “mistake” the dude did it for a prolonged period of time,a mistake would be once or twice,but not over and over and over again.
Its also alarming that this sort of violence doesnt worry some of you people. Like someone already stated,its proven that a person that abuses animals is WAY more likely to abuse humans. That should worry someone of you “fans”. He also didnt just make them fight,he executed the dogs that werent up to HIS standards. WOAH..RED FLAG.
And,to the person who said some shit about making thousands of dollars,and if we wanted that money,we’d do it too.
First off,no.. I infact would LOVE to have a few thousand bucks,but i certainly wouldnt even CONSIDER killing something to gain that money. I know most people who would love to have that kind of money,yet i also know,NONE of them would ever go to violent sadistic lengths to get it.
I cant believe some people can actually look at that picture,and bullshit the fact that is ok,because hes in the nfl. Right,because sports players are above the law. His rank and status have nothing to do with the actual violence hes caused. No,he shouldnt be killed. But yes,he should be punished,he should do time,because he did BREAK THE LAW,AND HE DID VIOLENTLY KILL MANY DOGS IN A SADISTIC,UNFORGIVING MANNER,OVER AND OVER AND OVER AGAIN,TO GAIN PROFIT AND ENTERTAINMENT. shit..
Yea, he shudn’t of dun it. Fair point. But he’s in prison serving his time, maybe its not long enough, fair point.
But all you pricks that continuously say “burn in hell”, “I wud like to torture him” and “I’m a Vegan” are just as bad as him. Ill think you find that in the peinal code section 48 states that it is a federal crime threaten another human being. The fact of the matter is that a dogs life is not worth a humans.
Wens the last time u saw a dog write a symphony or create a spectacular work of art. Dogs are not worthless and dont deserve the cruelty he put them through but, the person who sed that he took 100 lives (are you saying that your life isn’t worth more than a mere dog?) but he shudn’t serve that much more that he has been sentenced to serve.
P.s. I am a dog lover and i work in a dogs home in England.
FUCK ALL U PIECES OF SHIT YOU WOULD NEVER DO SHIT TO VICK IN PERSON ONE BECAUSE HE WOULD SLAP THE TITIES OFF OF YOU
AMY YOUR PROBABLY TO FAT TO MAKE IT OUT OF THE HOUSE
SAM I HOPE U GO TO HELL
DOGS ARE FUCKIN DELICIOUS SO WHAT IF THEY FIGHT A LITTLE
ITS IN THEIR BLOOD THATS WHAT THEY WERE BORN TO DO
HES A FOOTBALL PLAYER THIS SHIT SHOULD HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH HIM PLAYING
AND VICK HATER “LEAVE U ALONE IN A ROOM WITH VICK FOR A MINUTE” HAHAH WHAT IS UR ASS GONNA DO U GOT TO GET OUT OF THE HOUSE AND QUIT MASTURBATING FIRST AND YOU AND I BOTH KNOW THATS NEVER GONNA HAPPEN
FUCK ALL THE HATERS VICKS THE MAN
FREE MICHAEL VICK
PS. YOU GUYS GUY BLOW
disclaimer: please read this without being the narrow minded assholes that you are. first off i have a dog and love it and would never fight it. do i agree with dogfighting…no. but the difference between me and you people hating on vick is that you guys are fucking hypocrits. not only do you guys eat slaughtered animals but have you ever fished before. dont say no you piece of shit every person has fished before. youre right stabbing a needle through a living animal in order to catch another animal and killing it by suffocating it and slitting its throat(that would be the fish) is totally not on the level of dogfighting. now youre probably saying that a fish and worm are not equal to a a dog but in that case that means you are a piece of shit who are trying to say they are not equal animals to lie to yourself because that exposes your hypocracy and proves that youre point is dumb. also you think michael vick should die. i totally understand your logic that since michael vick locked up animals, fought them, and killed them, that michael vick should be put in jail (hey kind of like a dog cage) and killed and put in hell. no that totally makes sense and really shows how you guys make alot of sense. get the fuck off michael vicks back.
What Michael Vick did is disgusting, and he deserves to be in jail (and should have gotten a much more severe sentence, but didn’t, since nonhumans are viewed as property by the law). However, I must say that for those who say what Michael Vick did was wrong, so is consuming animal products. Dog fighting and consuming animal products are both unnecessary for human survival, both exploit and cause violence to the nonhuman victims, and both are done for the gain of human pleasure.
The court only gave Vick the sentence they did (again, it was a very light sentence, trivializing his actions) because dog fighting isn’t a socially accepted institutional use of nonhuman animals, and the manner in which the dogs were used “wasted” the animal property, and was therefore deemed “unnecessary.” Whereas, the exploitation and slaughter of nonhumans for food is a socially accepted practice, and even though it violates the nonhuman animals’ interests, it is justified as being “necessary” because the exploitation and violence committed against these animals is required in order to facilitate their use for food. If you’d like to learn more about nonhumans as property by law and how that interferes with their humane treatment, read professor of law, Gary Francione’s books, “Animal Rights: Your Child or the Dog?” or “Animals, Property, and the Law”.
As for those saying that we vegans–who are simply pointing out that animal exploitation and violence is much broader than dog fighting–don’t care about nonhuman animals and don’t support exploitation and violence towards them just so we can feel we are “better” (whatever that means) than them, that is an astoundingly ridiculous thing to say. We are no more vegans to feel superior to nonhumans than are people against child exploitation to feel superior to children. It is NOT about feeling superior, but about having compassion for the vulnerable and affording equal consideration to all sentient beings, human and nonhuman. Should we exploit and be violent towards children or the severely mentally disabled because they cannot create symphonies or fantastic pieces of art? Is it worse when a child prodigy dies than when an average child dies? When a child is abused or murdered, do we ask if they were talented first to decide the severity of the abuser’s or murderer’s sentence? OF COURSE NOT. All that matters is that children and the mentally disabled are sentient. When we mourn a person’s death, it’s not because their IQ or talent was at a certain level, it is because they were sentient and could have experiences in life that they will no longer get to have. We may not accord children and the severely mentally disabled the right to vote or drive a car since those rights would be useless to them, but we still recognize them as having inherent value, and accord them the basic right not to be treated as a means to an ends–not to be treated as things. Similarly, nonhumans are sentient beings, and while the right to vote or drive a car would be useless to them, they deserve the basic right not to be treated as things.
Humans do not need to consume animal products in order to survive. While cave people sometimes depended on hunting for survival for food and warmth, that is not true for the overwhelming population of people today. People are omnivores, which means that we have the ability to obtain nutrients from either plant or animal sources, but it does not mean that we MUST consume animal products in order to survive. So why harm someone when you don’t need to? In regards to chimps “eating” monkeys, that was an observation by Jane Goodall in the 60’s in Gombe, and is a pattern more suggestive of social and territorial competition than of true predation, and possibly an aberration due to human presence or some other stress (considering this behavior is only evident in Gombe). Primatologists such as Geza Teleki, has calculated that even that only amounts to 1 to 4 percent of the Gombe chimps’ diet. Note that chimpanzee fangs are much larger than human “canine” teeth, yet they still eat mostly a vegetarian diet. Humans have also during times of war in our history, cannibalized their enemies as a method of displaying power, or as a way to “consume” the enemy’s “power.” An interesting book that covers this is “An Unnatural Order”.
Irregardless, there are carnivorous animals, omnivorous animals (whose diets have evolved to be more flexible and adaptable to their habitat), and herbivorous animals. The point is not what the rest of the animal kingdom has evolved to eat, but what food humans are able to survive on. We can be vegan and not compromise our health (providing one is not living off junk food like chips and soda). So, the compassionate thing for humankind to do is not exploit and slaughter nonhumans by the tens of billions annually, worldwide for pleasure.

Throughout history, poverty is the normal condition of man. Advances which permit this norm to be exceeded — here and there, now and then — are the work of an extremely small minority, frequently despised, often condemned, and almost always opposed by all right-thinking people. Whenever this tiny minority is kept from creating, or (as sometimes happens) is driven out of a society, the people then slip back into abject poverty.
