I have been struggling some with the whole Michael Vick (MV) thing for a few reasons.
1. There will never be "justice" for those dogs. What could you do to MV? Some say kill him. That would still not get justice. It would send a heck of a message though.
2. Technically speaking of course, he did play his debt. He served his time and has also publicly apologized many times. Now don't get all mad at me, I know he hasn't paid his debt to those dogs but you know what I mean.
3. He has apologized. He has at least apologized. I know that doesn't mean much to the dogs that were harmed/killed/tortured but his apology does mean something. Some people do evil things and never apologize.
Mom listens to Howard Stern and he has discussed MV a few times. Most recently this week. MV is going to be on this weeks edition of 60 minutes. Howard called him a scum bag and said he's just trying to improve his image. Then a discussion occurred. Should any NFL teams hire him after what he's done. Howard said no, Robin said he has a right to earn a living. Howard said then he can go drive a bus. More discussion but what was funny was Howard asked Robin, if you had a pro team would you hire him? Robin responded "HELL NO"
What I am struggling with is this; Does he deserve a chance to change or should I continue to wish he had the same torture done to him that he inflicted on the dogs?
I just don't know. Sometimes people deserve a second chance? Sometimes people don't. I don't have the answer but it's really gotten me thinking lately. It should be interesting after MV is on 60 minutes. Honestly I don't know if I want to watch. This will more than likely humanize Michael Vick and I am not sure I want to see him as human. To me he is a monster.
I am closing with a picture of a Pit Bull Momma and her pups. A happy picture.
