The past is exactly where it should be, behind us
I have written two blogs about Michael Vick. The FIRST one was when he first went to prison, the SECOND was when his people came up with that lame ass idea about how he expects to continue his reign as the top money maker in the NFL upon his release from prison.
This will be my third and and final installment of my Michael Vick saga.
In this post I am not going to bash Mr. Ron Mexico.
I am going to bash all those hypocrites in America that preach all day about redemption and rehabilitation and forgiveness and giving second chances to people that have made mistakes, but forget all that "love thy brother" shit when ever it is not convenient or politically correct for them.
I am going to hit in the head all those motherfuckers that place an animal's life above a humans.
I am going to talk bad about all those hating ass sports commentators that think that just because they know who scored the first touchdown in the first Superbowl, that gives them the right to judge somebody.
Yep all the above mentioned bastards can die a very slow and agonizing death.
All those people that think they have the right to judge a man who has already been judged by a federal judge can kiss by Black Ass.
All those fake ass Christians and religious Zealots that feel the need to pass judgement on people, while they stand by and watch their pastors bilk their congregations out of millions of dollars a year, can go straight to the hottest part of hell.
I am in no way endorsing what Mr. Vick did. I am an avid Dog Lover. In fact my beloved Dog, Snowball, just had to be put down because he had an incurable nerve disorder. That dog was part of my family and I loved him dearly. I think about him everyday, so I think what Mr. Vick did was deplorable.
But, (yes here is the but), Michael Vick did what was required of him by the Federal Government to atone for and pay for his crimes. He passed all the tests that were set before him. He abided by the stipulations that the court placed upon him. He has suffered financially, spiritually and mentally. He has lost "friends", probably some family members and the trust of some people that once depended on him.
However, there are some people in this country that think that he should pay more. They think that he does not deserve to pursue his chosen occupation because of his past crimes. They think that just because he killed dogs, he should be labeled an axe murderer and have to be stigmatized the rest of his life like a convicted sex offender.
There are some organizations that think that Michael Vick should have gotten a harsher sentence than what he got.
I would bet you my next 3 paychecks that if the role were reversed and it was these assholes that are condemning Mr. Vick, and they were the ones that were looking to start over, they would be deathly quiet. They would be begging for public support and they would be screaming about how they have paid their debt to society and they deserve a second chance.
I believe that Mike Vick is a stupid man. I believe that he did what stupid people do, he made stupid choices in friends and he made stupid decisions based on his stupidly.
But he manned up, took the hit and now he wants and needs to move on.
He should be allowed to do so.
At least that is what I think anyway.
