Vick Codefendant Pleads Guilty …

Written by PETA | July 30, 2007

… but first, here’s a comic from the wonderful Dan Piraro that I think just about sums it up:

One of Michael Vick’s codefendants, Tony Taylor, changed his plea to guilty today. Taylor admitted to the court that he helped buy pit bulls and puppies and executed animals who didn’t do well in performance tests by shooting and electrocution.

PETA is offering up to $1,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of anyone suspected of dogfighting.

    Hey “Michael Vick” I suggest that you don’t blog here until you learn how to spell. You obviously lack an education. Anyone who can’t sympathize with animal abuse deserves to burn in hell. Michael Vick isn’t sorry for what he did he is only sorry he got caught.

  • Maya says:

    Ronald you crack me up. I thought I made it clear an animal that injures or kills any person should be destroyed. But the situation I am asking about is if someone takes a kind friendly family pet and kills it why is that any better than killing a human? Do you have a logical answer?

  • Ronald Hopkins says:

    Maya let me ask you this question what do we do to the dog that hurt the little girl. What do we do to the shark that attacks the innocent swimmer. What do we do to the crock that attacks the little girl riding the bike. The fact of the matter is is that do the shark the dog or the crock think we are equal. NO they don’t this isn’t about if you shoulden’t feel sad if a animal dies you said that a animals life and a humans life are equal. Why is it that they feel diffenent then you do. I have a idea why don’t you go up to a lion and tell him that you two are equal and then wait or his answer. Lets see if he agrees with you.

  • victor nalli says:

    This is not I REPEAT NOT A RACIAL ISSUE. The man is a high profile figure and he needs to be made an example of so others dont partake in this. No dog should be treated like this and if he pleads guilty he should never play football again.

  • Maya says:

    Dan I totally agree with just about everything you said. I’m headed into a graduate program for conservation biology so I will be devoting a good part of my life to protecting the Earth even though my focus will be habitat loss. I probably shouldn’t have said “gansta” but I should have said “criminal” Whether it be a black person white person cop politician whoever to me if one of them commits murder the law should be completely blind and punish them all equally. Which brings me to Vick. I don’t know the guy. Never met him. So I cannot judge him and again your idea of forgiveness is a good one. But he allegedly bred pit bulls to tear each other to shreds. It’s brutal and scary and violent. The dogs can and do harm and kill children. It’s not his character but his actions that disturb me. It is a terrible shame that his charity will suffer. But to me he made a choice to do something he knew was illegal. He knew it could hurt the charity when he did it and he did it anyway. I also wish PETA could focus on all animal abusers equally. Sadly there are literally HUNDREDS of other animal rights and eco groups but ONLY the radical ones get attention. The NRDC Alley Cat Allies the SCSPCA Nature Canada CPAWS Being Caribou The Wolverine Foundation all great groups. But they get totally ignored because they’re too “boring” for us ADHD Americans. PETA focuses on Vick and guess what thousands of hits. The other groups go completely peaceful and noncelebrity focused and they get blown off. Oh well. But as long as we give all our attention to PETA negative or positive for focusing on Vick they’ll keep doing it. Pax. Maya

  • Dan T. says:

    Maya and here is my response to all of your things to me. 1. Dog fighters are not just people who do those things they come from all walks of life. I won’t go into detail because i said who else does it on the message above. 2. The northeastern study thing. Thats about as an effective study as saying people with adhd will be more active and harder to control than your average person. A violent person tends to do violent things. I’m not saying its good to be violent I’m saying that study was a waste of time if it took more than 10 seconds to study. 3. I’ve was attacked by a dog when I was younger the dog was not a dog fighting dog. Alot of people are attacked by dogs. There is an explanation for it some times instincts can not be surpressed dogs are just wolves that have been attempted to have the agression bredded out of them over along period of time. Just like bulls who are supposed to be steers will sometimes stay a bull and be agressive as hell. It’s nature you can not stop that. And aren’t pitbulls bred to be mean? 4. If peta has targeted dog fighters before and had no success at stopping it maybe they should find a new approach to stop it instead of harassing the people who allegedly do it. Peta obvisouly isn’t this great loving and understanding organazation. They take their donations to harass Vick who has not been proven guilty their members are hypocrites Vick allegedly killed dogs so he should be put to death? I’ve read some people say that. Look at the name of this part of the site… The PETAfiles? They joke around about a child rapist but heres an idea… get a bunch of people to wear vick jerseys and have em play with a dog pinyata outside one of the leaders of petas house and just see if they are people who like to make light of the situation which they do with the “petafiles” or they are just screwed up in the head and put animals above humans. I’d have a feeling they’d freak out.

  • Dan T says:

    Maya You are obvisouly a compassionate person which is cool. I don’t want to insult you or anything but take a look at whats going on. 1. Mike Vick going to jail. What would that do? What i see is a man with alotta money and with charities being put in a place where his rights will be taken away. That’ll fuck his charity outta alot of money. His charity is to do what you want. Get gangstas off the street. You say put them in jail his way is more constructive his charity provides them with activities to keep them away from gangs. 2. It’s not just “gangstas” that do it. Its cops and politians and hicks and just about every kinda walk of life. 3. Dog fighting is not good but it is not the worse problem in america. We are human and human problems should come before animals problems. I know that sounds cruel I mean I love animals I really do Dogs above all animals. I am not just saying that I promise. Our biggest problems are 1. Global Warming which our government paid scientist to say it wasn’t happening 2. The War which our government said there was WMD and there wasn’t 3. Those who still suffer from 911 mainly firefighters who need medical services but are denied them and what about the homeless you say these gangstas steal from… i doubt vick stole from a homeless man i would put money on it he doesn’t. And they didnt steal the mans house. What about the katrinia victims and rebuilding new orleans what about medical research i believe all of these things are more important than catching a single dog fighter. 4. What about Osama Bin Laden shouldn’t he be the most hated man in America? Why did our attention switch off of him he was supposedly behind 911 correct? Why isn’t our government putting every last dime of money and every second into finding him. How can you have a country focus their hate on a man who allegedly killed 50 dogs max or something liek that than a man who killed thousands of Americans? And the people who said he killed these dogs first are the same people who lied to you abut iraq lied to you about pat tillman lied to you about global warming deny firefighters who were heros in 911 medical care and all these things. Yet when they say Mike Vick did something you blindly believe them. You have no videos no pictures you have witness testimony which is flawed if you don’t believe so i recommend the book the innocent man. I am sorry i don’t think this is being handled the right way and i don’t think Americans tax dollars should be spent on the government teaching a rich black athlete a lesson rather than to help and protect Americans.

  • Maya says:

    Dan 1. Among people who fight dogs are gang members wife beaters people who steal from the homeless and people who lure kids to drop out of school. So there you go. Putting these “ganstas” in jail solves all your gripes. 2. Northeastern University did a study which shows that people who abuse animals are more violent and will commit more crimes. You should read it. 3. I’m a certified veterinary nurse and I’ve seen these dogs attack people. Some of them have mauled children. Some of them have killed children. So there again is your answer. They are being bred for their aggression. 4. PETA has always targeted dogfighters but it never gets media attention as is evidenced by your answer. No one notices until a celebrity is targeted. 5. Your answer about forgiveness was very cool. I wish more people would think that way. Peace.

  • Michele says:

    So all of you “innocent until proven guilty” people would probably also leave your young children in the care of Michael Jackson since he was acquitted of his child sexual abuse charges. And do not say that I am being racist because Michael Jackson is whiter than I am!

  • Steven says:

    The thing is a lot of peta people are attacking vicks dignity WITHOUT proof if he did it then yes you have a reason like protesting selling fur someone killed those animals and its proven but vick has not been found guilty in court of anything i support vick as does anyone who has any clue about the court of law some people dont believe in due process.

  • Dan T says:

    and to all of you who are for convicting Vick and talk about Jesus… he spoke of forgiveness… try it sometime you hypocrites

  • Dan T says:

    Yal are dumb. Most of you aren’t antidog fighting your antivick. And that’s the truth if it was some average joe dog fighting you’d be like thats too bad and forget about it the next day. Your either racist or just against Vick. Than some of you are saying dumb shit like my tax money is well spent if Vick gets convicted… your fucking dumb have you forgot what the feds should be doing? For over five and a half years we’ve been looking for Bin Laden your not even the bit pissed to find out that they are spending time and money to get ONE black man on dog fighting when there are how many dog fighters in the world instead of them getting bin laden and how much money have they already spent on trying to find him to not finish the job is wasting who knows how much money. So no your tax money is not well spent dog fighting is not the biggest problem in the country. What about the homeless what about the domestic violence what about education what about gangs what about these things? Why is our tax money not being spent more on that instead of the war or trying to convict one black athlete on dog fighting charges? And don’t preach about how your about love talking about giving Vick the electric chair? what the fuck? hows that solve anything… you speak about love but you don’t know forgiveness and where is the greater good in putting vick behind bars what about his charity how much money are you gonna fuck them outta? For what? i mean i love dogs but i am a human. So tell me why putting Vick behind bars would solve anything? Anything relevent to this situation. You can’t. You wanna fuck kids outta money to keep them off the street the mike vick foundation you wanna spend your tax money on putting Vick behind bars instead of spending money on finding bin laden or rebuilding new orleans or anything that makes fucking sense… go watch tapes of 911 or katrinia and pleeeeaaassseee tell me where are money and time should be concentrated.

  • Honey says:

    I’m a big supporter of animals and I would rather get into a car accident than hit one no matter how small meaning a butterfly. Instead of spreading the he say she say of someone that is known to be guilty so he will say anything to save his own butt to the known fact that while PETA is actively pursuing Michael Vick where are the pictures or tape proving that he was at any of those events and I really hate if if a date given is wrong and he was playing football in Greenbay I hope that Mr. Roger Goodell doesn’t put PETA out of business for slandering someones name without proof because the lawsuit is going to damage another hope for animals you have all this money to advertise against Vick how about putting some of that energy into the shelters that help animals and have to close from lack of support and funds if you really want to help animal rights wait until the guilty verdict before you try pin a gulity verdict on someone if Michael Vick wins his case PETA and Mr. Goodell I can see you losing most of your supporters because you hype up your cause to save animals what animals are being saved when you are focusing most of your energy one one man Michael Vick. I donate to animal shelters and other causes for animals so you can count me out for support if Michael Vick wins because I can now see where my money is going it is being used for personal attacks on people careers instead of saving animals.

  • Kevin says:

    You see my opinion is that no one is truly looking at the facts here. Our country was built on the foundation that you are innocent UNTIL proven guilty. Vick could be innocent or guilty in my eyes. I honestly cant make a decision because I do not have all the facts of the entire situation just like all of you. We have what the media has told us and we all must remember the media is just trying to sell a story. I feel that going around and boycotting Nike for sponsoring Vick with only alleged crimes is utterly ridiculous. Now if these allegations are true then I agree Vick should serve time not be put to death because even convicted killers aren’t put to death. However I plan to boycott Nike for the rest of my life if he is found innocent. Vick is the center of a media storm right now and it will be impossible for him to get a fair trial…and yes he does deserve a fair trial. If he is convicted he has a lot of explaining to do but if he is found innocent a lot of people owe him an apology.

  • Maya says:

    Ronald that is the most simplistic hairbrained answer I’ve ever heard. If that pitbull had been a HUMAN attacking the little girl I’d say lock him in jail forever. Just like the pitbull lock the dog up or euthanize it so it won’t attack anyone else. But what if a person attacks a nice friendly dog? What if they beat it or kill it? Why is the dog’s life trivial? It’s not. If you’re talking about an emergency situation where either the dog animal or the human is aggressive and attacks the other of course the aggressor needs to have consequences for its actions. But why is killing a cat or a squid LESS abhorable than killing a little girl? It’s not a competition just tell me why we shouldn’t feel sad when an animal dies.

  • Ronald Hopkins says:

    I am from wisconsin the other day I was at the park with my little girl. Then out of no where this pitbull came to the park and attack this litle girl and three other people. I tried to do everything I could to get this monster off the little girl. If I had a knife I would have slit that monsters thorat. How can some of you people say that a animal like that has a life that is equal to that little girls life by the way the owner was around and her excuss was that “they are friendly animals and she does not know why it did that”. After seeing what I just saw I hate those monsters and to all of you who say that animal is equal to me and my little girl you are SICK poeple.

  • M F Power says:

    The codefendant is just trying to save his own ass. I’ve said it before and I will say it again…. Go Vick!!!!! We support you.

  • Anonymous says:

    Dear Mike Could you make any less sense? Really most everything you question has been thoroughly and intelligently addressed in these posts. Please read them if you are sincerely interested in answers. However I will remind you that the dogs were TORTURED!!! TORTURED! Any person capable of such barbaric treatment to any animal for any reason is a menace to society and deserves to be punished to the fullest extent of the law. Personally I am sorry for him and do NOT hate him. Yes one is considered innocent until proven guilty but people are NOT stupid as the few MVick’s diehard supporters would like to think they are which is why the court of public opinion has spoken loud and clear in the face of mounds of incriminating and horrific evidence! IMHO I think MVick would be better off if he repents of and owns up to his despicable deeds because it may be the only way to save face no matter the consequences rather than try to beat the rap and trying to reinstate the hero status he once enjoyed. WHO ARE THESE PEOPLE KIDDING?! Mike PETA’s focus is the ethical treatment of animals. That’s what they do! Other campaigns re other problems have their own focus. The weak argument that there are more important problems to deal with in the world is nothing more than a copycat diversionary tactic used as a means to an end by hatemongers animal abusers and animal abuser supporters. I pray you are not one.

  • Anonymous says:

    Mike Your attempt at civility is refreshing and indeed one is entitled to their own opinion. However TORTURE IS TORTURE AND UNACCEPTABLE ON EVERY LEVEL AND IN EVERY ASPECT OF ALL LIFE! To ignore this fact and just say its just an animal etc. is callous and ignorant. If you need to eat a hamburger so be it. But forget about trying to justify doing so here! For Mike and Tony and all others who thrive on the torturing of animals they’re just plain SICK and SICKENING and we can only pray that God has mercy on their EVIL souls! Fact The perpetuation of ignorance lame comparisons UNtrue facts and sick mindsets continues to result in the horrific tortuous deaths of millions of animals who feel and experience emotional and physical pain and suffering! Fact A campaign dedicated to save animals does NOT mean it does NOT care about human problems! Any comment to the contrary is merely a diversionary tactic to justify an ignorant rant! Anyone with any intelligence knows there IS a direct correlation of animal abuse and psychotic human behavior thus PETA’s agenda does affect many human lives for the better.

  • mike barrot says:

    Okay so heres how I feel… What Vick did was indeed wrong but lets face it the world has bigger problems. Basically I think that you people should worry about more important issues like war racism drugs and other much more important current events. Instead of taking all this energy and wasting it on protecting animals PETA should put its numbers towards a greater cause. Animals are just that animals and humans are animals with much more capability then any other animal thats ever been on the planet. So work on protecting US! Id rather you save one human life than save a million dogs. Also while I have your attention I would like to ask a question. Do you the people of PETA feed your animals meat? Well if you do then dont you see the problem here? Most animals were created to instinctivly eat meat so if I want a burger I will have one. I understand the choice to eat meat is a personal one and I respect peopels decisions not to do it but please dont try and make me feel bad about having a steak your wasting your breathe. As for dog fighting yes it’s cruel and wrong but I would much rather have a dog fighting another dog then a dog fighting me. As for Vick he hasnt been proved guilty of anything other then being guilty of charity work in underpriviliged cities. So instead of trying to make him look like the horrible person that he isnt prase him for the person that hes been in the past and for once try using your power for a REAL cause.

    IN LIGHT OF RECENT EVENTS I NOW SUPPORT AND GIVE THANKS TO PETA AND AND THE MANY OTHER ANIMAL RIGHTS AND RESCUE ORGANIZATIONS PAST PRESENT AND FUTURE AND APPLAUD ALL WHO SUPPORT THEM AND ALL WHO ACTIVELY PARTICIPATE IN THEM! I AGREE WITH ANDREA’s 730 POST IN THAT WHAT TONY TAYLOR DID TO THOSE POOR DOGS IS DESPICABLE BUT HE IS NOW DOING THE RIGHT THING BY OWNING UP TO AND TELLING THE TRUTH! MICHAEL VICK NEEDS TO DO THE SAME. YES MV WILL HAVE HIS DAY IN COURT WITH HIS BATTERY OF LAWYERS AND WISHFUL THINKING TO BEAT THE SYSTEM IN THE FACE OF HORRIFIC OVERWHELMING EVIDENCE! WHATEVER THE VERDICT IT WILL FOREVER PALE IN COMPARISON TO THE COURT OF PUBLIC OPINION AND RIGHTLY SO.

  • Maya says:

    Thank you greatly Michele! smiles

  • Michele says:

    Darcy that is NOT Maya who made those statements. I think you may be referring to “msboss” maybe Maya had a comment posted underneath msboss’s name and you are reading it incorrectly. Maya is a very articulate proanimal individual who would never even consider using the kind of language that msboss has done.

  • David Risley says:

    Hi Nonetheless You shouldn’t be asking what PETA is doing about the hunters rodeos and circus animals you should be asking what YOU can be doing. As Jack pointed out PETA is doing plenty on these topics and more. Search the website you will find answers to your questions not in a forum dedicated to dog fighting. This is not to minimize your contribution as those topics are all relevant and welcome but it just seems a little out of left field as if trying to lessen the impact of the current topic of dogfighting. Yes there are so many animal horrors out there to fight but instead of the overwhelming concept of addressing them all at once take it one at a time make your choice and make a difference with it while others make a difference with other topics. Cheers.

  • Maya says:

    Oh I get it. Darcy the commenter’s name appears below their comment not above. The comment you’re referring to was ms boss. Common mistake.

  • Maya says:

    Hi there Darcy. I think you were referring to someone else’s post LOL. I’m quite sure I never said such things. Good for a laugh though.

  • Darcy says:

    Maya…what in the world makes you believe you can call any of us who are against animal cruelty and dog fighting “fake ass dog lovers?” Where do you get your information? Have you not seen any of the videos online depicting these horrible offenses? Do you own a dog? dear Lord I hope the answer is no Also myself being a Woman of Color I can say to you…stop with the excuse of slavery for your inadequacy and ignorance. Your rambling makesnosense post evokes one emotion in me…pity. I feel sorry for you. How dare you use the name of our Savior Jesus Christ in your vulgar post. Shame on you.

  • Ariel says:

    Hi Maya! Oh yes I’m very “guilty” too of trying to explain to these people about animal rights’…and yes it wouldn’t do much to sing to the choir. very good for learning more from each other though. However I was thinking along the lines of the trolls who are so hardcore nasty like the one who TRIED to insult Ana and others in similar situations. Their persistent ignorance thrives on attention and wastes our time. So they continually fail to understand that their nastiness and obscenities do NOT affect us. But ya know I just realized something it shows to other antianimal activists just how much we are able to withstand and have it slide off our backs. It proves that we have the utmost strength and virtues that we carry forward in our beliefs for a VERY worthy cause…and what a fantastic way to show the intense importance of our cause! So as we continue with our educational animal activism “classes” perhaps not now at least we may have planted the seeds in the somewhat for lack of a better description “half decent” minds who will get the drift some day hopefully.

  • ann says:

    hinonetheless here is my answer to u PETA has limited source to cover everything re cruelty to animals. bull fighting is terrible but that is in spain do u think PETA can go to spainmexico philippineall over the world to speak for the voiceless animals? may be the billionaire bill gates can do it i ll certainly remind him when i see him next time we need to clean house at home firstmay be with a little helping hands from ” u ” too ? hope i hv answered ur question. as for those people complain about PETA is not working for all the abused children homeless peopledomestic violencewater pollution greenhouse effect global warming …etc. i suggest u check ur local yellow page under ” charity organization ” so u can put some helping hands for ur favorite charitys. for me i love animals so that is why i am here besides donate to my local humane society and PETA every yr. againPETA is the organization speaks for the voiceless animals don’t get confused pls.

  • Maya says:

    Hi Ariel! Yes the only real answer is that an animal’s life is just as valuable as a human’s. Ask PETA haters that question and you wiil see them hurl insults as a desperate distraction because obviously there is no logical rebuttal. A person’s life is not more valuable than a human’s. I so agree that we should ignore trolls. But sadly most posters myself included sometimes can’t help but respond to these nasty comments which as you said should be ignored. I do though think if someone respectfully challenges animal rights we should respond and kindly. If we’re just preaching to the choir after all we’re not getting anywhere productive. Blessings

  • Maya says:

    Hi Sam! What you’re talking about is an emergency situation. Now I don’t know if you’ve ever been in one of those situations but I’m a veterinary nurse and I have. It’s very different than a philisophical situation. For example if I saw a person being attacked by an animal I do think that it is vital to save the person’s life even if it means killing the animal. Absolutely. But what I am asking is tell me why PETA people should drop their animal rights work and “go help people”. I see no reason why a cat or a lobster deserves our help any less than a person. That’s philisophical. Humans and animals deserve life equally. But if you’re talking about a crisis that’s a different discussion entirely. I’ve been in lifethreatening situations and it’s something that in reality takes a lot of thought.

  • Ariel says:

    It is VERY clear that you antianimal activists do not have a reading comprehension ability and retention capability. Over and over again animal rights’ activists have repeatedly clearly and patiently explained to you that this org. is about animal rights…not about racism not about solving the world’s problems not about enforcing the law and not about every other unrelated subject or examples that any of you raise. With your responses you people have repeatedly proven that you are incapable of comprehending anything from the most simple animal rights’ comments to the most detailed comments to the most varied comments that any normal 3rd grader could fully understand. So please do yourselves a favor enroll yourselves in a reading comprehension course then get a wellrounded education then learn about compassion and try to absorb it…because obviously you are not capable of absorbing anything educational or anticruelty that has been presented to you here. Otherwise remain in your ignorance and take it elsewhere among your own type. Honestly we animal activists are amazed at your stubborn ignorance and your narrow minds that present such pointless and baseless views.
