RICHMOND, Va – Vick, made his appearance in court today and as expected pleaded guilty. As he stood before Judge Hudson he citied what I would call the normal scripted apology with the exception of adding his own ignorant remarks.
Stating his actions were inmature and he needed to grow up [how ignorant is that statement? What actions would he have done if he felt he was mature? He made it sound like dog fighting was a childish game, how thought provoking is that as a role model….fg2]
Stating dog fighting is a terrible thing [stating dog fighting is a terrible thing but has yet to admit that it is cruel and inhumane and unconscionable but bless his heart he didn’t participate in the gambling and betting so does that mean he feels that justifies his actions in helping to kill the dogs that were not fit for fighting….fg2]
Vick also repeatedly apologized to his young football fans, saying his behavior was “immature.”
“I apologize to the young kids for my immature acts,” Vick said. “What I did was immature and I need to grow up,” he said.
Asking for “forgiveness and understanding,” Vick said he would “turn my life over to God. That’s the right thing to do right now.”
“Dogfighting is a terrible thing and I reject it,” he said. [and the only reason he has made these statements is because he was caught, not because he knew or felt it was wrong to begin with……. at this point I am siging off any further posts regarding Michael Vick. I think everything that can be said has been said and his sentence isn’t until December. I realize there will be ongoing events regarding his career, his salary, etc but that would entail daily posts which at this point would be ludicrous….. flagranny2]
