I like the premise, but the drawing lacks a bit of clarity. When I first looked at it, I wasn't sure if the dog had stepped in something or had had its foot burned/electrocuted. It's a sad commentary when that's actually my first thought, but in light of the media coverage, more people may be confused by this cartoon.

On Tuesday, I was at a restaurant in eastern Kentucky eating a late lunch and avoiding the rain (remember that...rain?) before heading back to Cincinnati. A couple of tables over, a younger (maybe 20-ish) African American male was proudly wearing his new looking Michael Vick Falcons jersey. Sitting with this person were five other people of different ages (toddler to adult) - all white. A couple of guys walk in after a just sat down to eat and notice the jersey. Long story short, there was a argument that got out of hand, the police were called and people were hauled off.
With America being a pet-loving (especially dogs) nation, you had to see this coming. What Vick and his "friends" did was lower than low. A huge part of me wants to have him thrown into a barbed wire wresting ring against hard-core convicts with brass knuckles, crazed on drugs, and loaded with cheap booze. I'll give him three minutes, tops.

I just want to say Micheal Vick is the first celebrity in a long long time that fessed up to what he did and did the apology right. It is hard to tell how sincere someone is but Micheal Vick seemed quite sincere and humble when he apologized. And yes he started out claiming innocence but once the facts were out there he quickly did the right thing pleaded guilty and will take the punishment that is handed to him.

I am still appalled by what he did but I hope he truly becomes a changed man and matures because of these crimes.

NFL: Week 3
Vick may face more charges
Local prosecutor pursuing the case

The prosecutor in the rural county where Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick has admitted to bankrolling a dogfighting operation plans to present "a host of bills of indictment" regarding the case to a grand jury today.

Moonlight Road is the address of the two-story home on 15 acres that has been host to the operation known as "Bad Newz Kennels" since 2001, and where dogs have been trained, executed, and fought.

"Most of the matters that I'm presenting have already been admitted in sworn statements authored by the defendants in the federal proceedings," Poindexter said.

He couldn't detail the exact indictments he will pursue, but said the local investigation and the federal investigation largely focused on different crimes.

"The killing of dogs is one of those statutory prohibitions. Dogfighting is a crime, the mistreatment of animals is a crime, so you could take your pick, or take them all," Poindexter said before cutting the conversation short. "I don't have anything else to say about it. I'm through with it. Hopefully it's coming to an end."

Vick, his codefendants, and lawyers will not attend the closed proceeding.

Efforts to reach Vick's lawyers were not immediately successful.

Vick and three codefendants already have pleaded guilty to conspiracy charges in the case, and all are awaiting sentencing in federal court before the end of the year.

Vick, who faces up to five years in prison, also has been indefinitely suspended without pay by the NFL and been dropped by all his major sponsors, including Nike.

In his written plea, Vick admitted helping kill 6-8 pit bulls and supplying money for gambling on the fights. He said he did not personally place any bets or share in any winnings, but gave his three co-defendants all those proceeds.
