Vick Indicted on Virginia State Charges

Written by PETA | September 25, 2007

As you may have heard by now, Michael Vick and his three co-defendants were indicted today by a grand jury, and charged with one count of beating or killing a dog in addition to one count of engaging in and promoting dogfighting. The next step is for the prosecuting attorney, Gerald Poindexter, to actually charge these guys. This is PETA’s official statement on the new indictment:

“PETA believes, as most Americans do, that the best way to safeguard animals is for anyone who participates in dogfighting to spend time behind bars and be banned from owning animals for life. Given that dogs who did not perform to the defendants’ satisfaction were intentionally killed by electrocution, drowning, hanging, shooting, and being repeatedly slammed to the ground, state felony cruelty-to-animals charges and state felony dogfighting charges are clearly warranted in this case. The federal authorities prosecuted the crimes under their jurisdiction with due diligence, and we look forward to seeing Commonwealth Attorney Gerald Poindexter do the same.”

    STL STEVE First of all Peyton Manning did not fight the dogs and brutally kill them for not being good enough. Killing them more brutal then we do our convicted murderers and rapist. Sheesh we put them to sleep peacefully. However Michael Vick Did this putting him on the Hot Seat and he happens to be Black. We cant put a white person there unless he does this or gets caught at it and I am certain there are whites that do this. I would love to see them caught and prosecuted too. However any time that a high profile black gets caught at something illegal anyone that is against them is racist. To me the people calling them racist is the actual person being racist. My self I believe that all people are created equal under god. It is how they handle themselves through life is what is important. I myself do not care too much for the Deer Hunting either however since the beginning of time man has had to kill for food. I cant much tell you that I agree with that and I dont care for deer meat. I have always had a compassion for the short life of cows too however I do eat meat. I have however stood up against these veal farmers which are white for the cruelty to calves. You call this urban I call this choices. America is a land of opportunity all it takes is action and one can change their lifestyles. Those who choose to get their ego from being Urban as you call it. By dealing drugs killing each other running prostitution that is the choice they made. If I dont agree with it does not make me racist because these are not only blacks they are all races combined and I do not care to have anything to do with any of them. The Bottom line is if you do the crime you must be able to do the time. Now you tell me that you would want your kids to look up to someone Like Vick now. My Grandson idolized him until this. What an example he set for America youth. Pro Athletes get paid a lot of money to be professionals they need to start acting like a profession on and off the field. They are the ones who made the choice to be professional and in the lime light. Being paid millions is not the only responsibility of professional athletes they are role models and should conduct themselves in that matter. They can make a difference in generations to come. The NFL and NBA need to get like NASCAR These athletes which they are are forced to own up for their actions on or off the track. They will get a major fine just for saying a four letter word. Nascar knows that these drivers are in the limelight. Just thought I should vent a little about all this.

  • Judy says:

    I dont get why nobody is seeing the BIGGER PICTURE here. This seems to be about one bad celebrity guy and that automatically lumps the felony in with entertainment. I tried to find statistics on how many people have been indicted and charged with the same grievous actions… still searching….

    I hope the real tuff guys in jail have some fun with Vick. Let’s just see who’s stocking is getting stuffed for Christmas this year. I am an NFL lover and attend the Church of the NFL on most Sundays but not this year since the NFL has not yet given him the never come back boot in the

  • Danny Totten says:

    Well this has not just started. Dog fighting has been going on for years. The movie “White Fang” was just a sypnosis of this type of immoral behavior. As far as the prosecutor goes he is just trying to make a name for himself. In the latest news sheriff Frank Casell White who was an ex state trooper was charged with racketeering operating an illegal drug operation conspiracy and Fraud. He put confiscated drugs from drug busts back in the community and had half of the sheriff department of Henry County Va involved. However my point is this They gave him 8 months in a federal prison and the State of Virginia did not even press Charges. I guess he was one of the good old boys. In contrast Micheal Vick is a young man with his whole future ahead of him and people want him to lose everything he got over a Dog! What is this world coming too? I wonder how many lives were lost behind drugs last year or how many drug dealers got busted that got more than eight years vs eight months after sheriff Frank Cassel and his boys arrested them. I tell you what happened the vast majority of them was Black and they got the key thrown away at them. I say Vick should be punished but not finished.

    When men are most sure and arrogant they are commonly most mistaken giving views to passion without that proper deliberation which alone can secure them from the grossest absurdities David Hume Your evidence is inaccurate substandard and widely rejected. Your writers continue to propagate assertions myths and rumors with the aim of inciting others to distrust and hate Michael Vick and people of color. And so much for being intelligent most of the posters think politics are separate from animal issues. They think they can save and help animals without politics. Unfortunately they would be wrong. Policy is how we get things done in a democracy. So if you refuse to acknowledge policy youre essentially refusing to help animals and further enabling the forces that threaten animals. I consider revenge to be the hurting of a person physically or mentally for the purpose of only satisfying a want. I think this is wrong. This is not intended as a personal attack on PETA but I encourage you to seek therapy rather then revenge. I would rather have society set up therapy centers than electrocutions to help people through their bouts of negative reciprocity. “those wellmeaning people the same who preach hate and harm???? Give me a break!

  • 007 says:

    tony tony tony tony TONY! a little altruistic consideration here please. basic mediation and dispute resolution rules of engagement do not necessarily apply to wellmeaning people sharing opinions and information which is generally the case here in this type of forum and you know it. hypocritically your real intent in bringing that up was in itself a personal attack to discredit those wellmeaning people and you know it. so save the sarcasm for the trolls who litter these files with their vile invectives and ignorant rants. oh re “not an english class” are you kidding me?! your sarcasm speaks volumes and yet you expect others to appreciate your “positions”? I for one can’t get past your arrogance! so spare us the lame excuses for your incoherent grammatically slaughtered ramblings. facts are good credibility best. FYI if you would take the time to read the many posts throughout the archives you would already know the positions of the very people you are attacking for not making their positions known.

  • tony316 says:

    number one this is a blog not english class. basic mediation and dispute resolution rules state individuals with no real position will attempt personal attacks. Do you think Mike Vick is a good person? i dont know michael vick personally to make a fair judgement. i’m aware of his foundation doing work in va. and ga. over $80000 between jan. june of 2006 his personal donation during va.tech incident rural area kids being offered reason after school opportunities and some work in third world countries. Do you think it’s okay to use dogs for fighting? no i do not Do you think it’s okay to use marijuana and I am not talking about using it for medicinal purposes? i’m against the use of any illegal substances. Do you think Mike Vick is the kind of person children should be using as a role model? no my heroes were my parents and throughout life that has never changed. vick is a player in a pro sport that does not make him everyones role model. parents should guide childern not individuals they have never met. Do you think people who have been convicted of serious crimes should get off with a light sentence? vick has sentencing guideline and should be treated like anyone else in the same situation. vick or anyone should not be punished beyond what is written max 5 yrs and $250000 fine. Now answer my questions. Do you think Revenge is a form of hate? What would you like to see Vick get in this case?

  • Michele says:

    tony316 I cannot even understand your post because you apparently do not know how to use punctuation or even basic grammatical structure. Do you think Mike Vick is a good person? Do you think it’s okay to use dogs for fighting? Do you think it’s okay to use marijuana and I am not talking about using it for medicinal purposes? Do you think Mike Vick is the kind of person children should be using as a role model? Do you think people who have been convicted of serious crimes should get off with a light sentence? When you answer tony316 please endeavour to use complete sentences so that we have at least a remote idea of what you are attempting to impart to us.

  • Lisa Carter says:

    I hope they make an example out of Michael Vick and he gets the maximum sentence and is banned for LIFE from playing football! He is scum and that’s all there is to it! He is already in so much trouble with the law and then he fails the drug test?? How stupid is he?? And I don’t want to hear him whining about how he had a tough childhood boo hoo! A lot of people have it tough and they don’t go around abusing animals and acting like a common thug so spare me! He deserves to have everything taken away and destroyed! Also to some of the posters here please either use spell check or proof your post! Your errors really show your intelligence level!

  • tony316 says:

    okay kibbles and bits fans.. majority is beyond 6 examples just read some of your foolishness..Revenge is hate and Vestagirl live beyond the trailer park. SAT score grammar try getting out of the mindset that you are smart..haha Because you aren’t.. keep writing so we can read more HATE mail. Go ahead call me the “n” word.. i know you want too. don’t jump off your trailer when Vick does not get death row..hahaha

  • Michele says:

    I seem to recall several posts over the past few months regarding Mike Vick and how he would basically get what he deserved karma etc. Well today I just learned that a Canadian bank is suing him for defaulting on a 2.5 million dollar loan. Ha ha! So now he will be looking forward to at least some jail time he cannot play his beloved football he has to deal with his latest dog fighting charges and there will be more I am certain of it he has to deal with being caught using marijuana and now he is being squeezed financially and somehow I think this is also just the beginning of his financial woes. He has got to be one of the biggest losers of all time and now he is definitely getting what has been coming to him for some time. Jerk!

  • Mike Quinoa says:

    Tony 316 said “No direct data to support your theory violent against animal relates to violent against humans.” Arson and cruelty to animals are two of three childhood warning signs regarding the potential to be a serial killer. John Douglas profiler of serial killers for the FBI. The FBI documented the connection between cruelty to animals and serial murder following a study of 35 imprisoned serial murderers… More than half of the serial murderers admitted to hurting or torturing animals as children and adolescents. A study by the International Journal for the Study of Animal Problems found that 83 percent of households with animal cruelty also have violence against people. This is not activity to be taken lightly. Famous animal abusers include Jeffrey Dahmer Ted Bundy Son of Sam the Boston Strangler Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold.

  • VestaGirl says:

    tony316 … we’re still waiting for your SAT score! Perhaps you can google the meaning of SAT… As ever your ramblings are not only moronic but amusing. Esp. your last sentence “As everyone can see no supportive data just repeating junk someone else told them” … uh looks like you’re doing exactly that visavis your plagiaristic ooh big word sorry! ramblings comprising the bulk of your post. Yawn. As an aside as ever please consider enrolling in a basic English grammar classes… you could learn a lot and it will help you communicate more effectively with your parole officer too. And save your sermons blahblahblah for your dogfighting friends. Now then why don’t you just fly to the moon or something ’cause you’re an astronaut too right?!?! Let’s designate sad little tony316 as persona non grata don’t worry he won’t know what that means! What an ignorant loser. Kudos to all AntiDogfighters posting here. All of us know that Michael Vick is a sadistic criminal who committed horrendous acts of violence against innocent animals. And now he has to face the legal consequences. This is indeed a victory. Keep up the fantastic work PETA!

  • Tony316 says:

    In 1800s the Staffordshire Bull terrier was developed and modern dogfighting was born. The dog was brought to America in 1817 and dog fighting became part of American culture. The sport was endorsed by the United Kennel Club which actually formulated rules and sanctioned referees. Although dog fighting had become illegal in most states by the 1860s it continued to flourish as an American pastime through the early twentieth century. It was so popular in fact that in 1881 the Ohio and Mississippi railroads advertised special fares to a dogfight in Louisville between Lloyds Pilot owned by Cockney Charlie’ Lloyd and Crib owned by Louis Krieger. Public forums such as Kit Burns Tavern The Sportsmans Hall at 273 Water Street in Manhattan regularly hosted matches and the sadistic culture became immortalized in the annals of American history and folklore. By the 1930s and 1940s the blood sport had been driven further underground as high profile organizations such as the United Kennel Club withdrew their endorsement. Although dog fighting was outlawed in all the states by 1976 it did not begin to receive serious law enforcement attention until recently. Today Dog fighting occurs all over the United States and throughout the world. In 2003 the city of Chicago alone recorded and responded to 1093 animal fighting complaints. The culture of dog fighting is as diverse as America itself. Dogfighters come from virtually all walks of life and engage in the blood sport at vastly different levels. Some fighters operate on a national or even international level within highly clandestine networks. These fighters are professionals that breed generations of skilled game dogs” take a great deal of pride in the lineage of their dogs and charge tremendous stud fees to breed their champions. The majority of recorded Murders were crime of passion. No direct data to support your theory violent against animal relates to violent against humans. As I said before and your comments echo this is about hate. I hope you dont have children so the breed of this type of foolish can stop with you. As everyone can see no supportive data just repeating junk someone else told them.

  • Norma S. says:

    TO TONY316 I DIDN’T SAY ATLANTA WAS VICK’S BIRTHPLACE. IT IS WHERE HE PLAYED PROFFESSIONAL FOOTBALL FOR 6 YEARS SO HE IS ASSOCIATED WITH ATLANTA. EVERYTHING I SAID ABOUT WHY VICK HAD MANY SUPPORTERS IN THAT TOWNHALL MEETING IS ACCURATE. QUIT MAKING EXCUSES FOR HIM. HOW DO I KNOW WHERE DOGFIGHTING IS MORE ACCEPTED IN CERTAIN PARTS OF THE SOUTH YOU ASK? A FRIEND OF MINE AND HIS FAMILY MOVED FROM THAT CERTAIN COMMUNITY A FEW YEARS AGO. RESEARCH THAT I DID BACKS THAT UP AS WELL. LOOK IT UP YOU’LL SEE. WHERE IS MY PROOF OF THE ANIMALHUMAN ABUSE LINK? THE PSYCHIATRY EVALUATIONS OF MURDERERSHUMAN TORTURERS ETC. LOOK THAT UP AS WELL. TONY316I WILL NEVER SEE YOUR RESPONSE BECAUSE I WILL NEVER LOG INTO THIS BLOG AGAIN. EYE FOR AN EYE… KARMA!!! I HOPE A REAL FALCON CLAWS OUT MICHAEL VICK’S EYES. SUPPORT PETA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • tony316 says:

    All jokes aside Murder is the illegal killing of one human being by another. What you doing here is expressing hate but you can not see it. Revenge also vengeance retribution or vendetta amongst others consists primarily of retaliation against a person or group in response to a perceived wrongdoing. Although many aspects of revenge resemble or echo the concept of justice revenge usually has a more injurious than harmonious goal. The goal of revenge usually consists of forcing the perceived wrongdoer to suffer the same pain that was originally inflicted. Nowforgiveness is your unilateral decision to let go of the hate. Reconciliation is a step beyond forgiveness and it requires a change within someone else reconciliation must be bilateral. Reconciliation requires that both sides agree on the facts the hurt and the motivation so that each can understand the other’s point of view. Maybe one day you will see my point. My layover is over now it’s back to the real world. Good Luck and God Bless.

    Where is Vicks dog named “Jane?” You know the pretty girl that won him and his thugs lots of money on her great fights….Well she is in a morgue dead at the hands of these people….However keep your eyes open as someone is missing 2 digits to their finger….We know its not Vick as he has proceeded to flip off the American People a few times…. Think of the cruelty “Jane” suffered as the vet said her stomach showed in an xray 2 digits to someones fingers which most likely happened as she was being murdered…..She was so afraid of who was killing her that she fought back…..good for her!! Maybe she was one of the dogs that survived the hanging to be brutally murdered so bit a finger off of someone….whatever happened to her was traumatic as dogs who are loved don’t do this. The least this azzhole could have done was keep his winning dog alive as geez it kept his thug friends having an income……Real sick individuals and remember “Jane” she was a true “Grand Champion!”

  • Norma S. says:

    Tony 316 This is not about how many TD passes Vick threw or his time and date of birth this is about the consequences of his actions. The only reason Vick would draw a crowd now is so fans could protest and boo him. Vick’s Nike shoe and 1 jersey only sold because people did not know the truth about him. People now know what kind of murderer he is and won’t ever support him. PETA does not need to help a billion dollar organization the NFL like you said when that organization doesn’t have anything to do with animal rights. For those of you who say that instead of worrying about dogs we should worry about kids being molestedwomen getting rapedand humans being murdered . Well haven’t you stopped to think that the ones doing these horrible crimes to humans are very likely the very same ones who started their crimes w poor defenseless animals?!? I will never stop pointing out the very strong connection between animal abusers and human killers!!

  • tony316 says:

    Michele..sorry but Vick holds a NFL record for most yards rushing by a QB what does this mean he will always be remember. norma.. you write I do strongly agree with the factual connection between human abusers and animal abusers.This is a proven fact. you sound like someone with alot of experience.. also you write I don’t care if anyone gets offended by that fact. where is your proof?

  • RobinF says:

    To Tony316. If you do not wish to be direspected then do not attack others. You continue to feel the need to let us know you were a pilot in the Air Force. If its true may I commend you for serving your country. However it does not take a college degree or even GED to understand the crime committed by your Falcons hero. Keep in mind that along with him there are many other NFL and pro sports players who are involved with professional dog fighting and yes I PRAY that every one of them white black whatever they may be are brought out by this. No one in Gods name has the right to inflict pain torture and death on these creatures. They bring us comfort and great joy. The sad reality here is that you just can’t understand. So I will not address any more comments to you. And FYI I am not fat in fact I am a personal trainer and am happily married. Still think its okay for you to stereotype others?? Remember that most of us here have been deeply disturbed by this cowards behavior. He has been given every opportunity in life more than he deserves more than most people will ever get. If anything good comes out of this it is the hope that now some dogs will be spared this pain. I think your on here because you’ve got nothing better to do. Take the time to go back and read your comments. Really READ your comments. Get it?

  • Norma S. says:

    I feel the need to write this again… To those who were wondering why did the Atlanta townhall meeting have so many Vick supporters it is because he played in that city. Simple as that!!! I have followed this story since it first came out and have found that dogfighting is more accepted in lower class noneducated communities. I don’t care if anyone gets offended by that fact.That’s the reality about it and I’m sticking to it!! Thanks to everyone who has written your letters and made your phone calls toas Peta saysSACK VICK!!!!!!!! Posted from someone who is an animal rights activist. Oh yeah by the way you can be for animals rights as well as for human rights at the same time! Just because someone is passionate about defending those that can’t defend themselvesanimals does not mean they are not also involved in childrendomestic abuse causes as well. I am writing this to you Lashaun Easley. AnywayPeta supporters keep up the fight for animals!!!

  • tony316 says:

    norma.. Atlanta is not Vick’s hometown. Just for your important Vick’s jersey was the number one sold jersey for 5 yrs. Vick generated the most sellout over the last 5 years. Vick sneakers guess what number one. So to say elsewhere he would be booed is incorrect.The Georgia Dome season tix holders 80 of 72000 are people of color. If we don’t show up the Dome is empty. I don’t see PETA helping the Falcons only running them out of town.

  • Karen says:

    I am not here to demean anyone’s military service IQ race education culture or right to hold an opinion. Sniping at each other about ebonics and trailers doesn’t seem productive. I am here to discuss Vick’s actions and the consequences of those actions. This is a PETA board. I don’t lose ferver for what I believe in because someone else tells me that other causes are more important. This is the cause of my heart. I can’t take up every cause and be effective and I choose this one with apologies to no one. Please take up the causes of humanitarian rights that are important to you and work hard to affect change! I don’t care if the Atlanta Falcons “go anywhere” but I don’t do hitandruns on your football discussion boards. Vick tortured and killed sentient beings for socalled amusement not by having a vet put them down which would be awful enough but with his own hands using a variety of horrendous methods. He belongs in jail. He is a dangerous man who lacks respect for life. I don’t trust Vick’s contrition at this point. I am sure he wishes he hadn’t messed up his career but I don’t believe that a person who recently slammed an innocent dog to the ground over and over has made such a dramatic turnaround already. The best measure of future behavior is past behavior. So he made statements condemning cruelty to kids especially actions speak louder than words. I think the action of jailing Vick would speak pretty loudly about refusal to tolerate cruelty.

  • Norma S. says:

    Vick tested positive on Sept.13thwhat an idiotfor marijuana use. Regardless of social issues such as marijuana being illegal dogfighting unfortunately is more accepted in lower class non educated communities. Vick knew dogfighting was illegal because he denied being involved wit in any way. If he had no idea about it being illegal he would have admitted his wrong doings right away when he was first questioned by the Falcons owner and the NFL commissioner. He cannot use the”I didn’t know” excuse. When the horrendous truth broke out in the media about his premeditated dogfighting torture operation he said in a egotistical way and this is him speaking”Michael Vick will always be supported no matter what he does.The world loves Vick. He can do no wrong.” Apparently he thought he was invincible which is pretty funny because his $130million contract he had w the Falcons was taken away. Nike dropped himthe Falcons owner who once esteemed Vick has no respect for him and so on. I really do hope he gets what he deserves. In order for this to happen letters need to be written emails need to be sent phonecalls need to be made. Thank you Marge for putting up the address where letters need to be written to the judge who will be sentencing Vick in December.

  • norma s. says:

    In the Atlanta townhall meeting that was aired on ESPNunfortunately Michael Vick had so many supporters because he is from Atlanta. Barry Bondsan alleged steroid userhas many supporters in San Francisco where he playsbut he is booed everywhere outside of his hometown.Vick will have many supporters in Atlanta but outside of his city he is known as the cowardly murderous convicted felon that he is. And I do strongly agree with the factual connection between human abusers and animal abusers.This is a proven fact.

    RobinF I think “Tony 316″‘s SAT score was 316 or perhaps I am overestimating his abilities Mike RobinF VestaGirl Judith Brandon Susannah S Nancy Dana kelly BullyDawg Kerry H Veronica Soto etc etc etc. You all rock! So does PETA for its continued pressure on all of the individuals and companies who were payingendorsing Vick or silently allowing his activities to continue. Vick is a pathetic excuse for a human being. In 5 10 or 20 years no one will remember him for his athletic abilities he will always be known as that loser who tortured animals.

    to tony316 i agree with you why did you fight in the desert storm i wouldn’t fight for this country the usa if they put george the evil bush on the front line. this has nothing to do with a vicous breed of dogs it has to do with m. vick being a black man leading a football team in the south where they dont want a black man to be anything but a uncle tom n. to marga and mel who needs vick? i know the atlanta falcons need him if they think they are going to go anywhere with what they got. believe it i hope that all of you that wants to see m. vick fall i hope whatever you wish on him happens to you triplefold.

  • Ashley Robnett says:

    I totally agree with brandon I was upset with the fact that they only held one count indictment against vick but it truley has opened the eyes of the public and to the NFL. They should never let him play again and i do think that he should get up to 10 yrs at least. Dogs or any kind animal for that matter should always be looked at as a joy to this earth. There are so many beautiful creatures that rome the world that are now becoming closer and closer to extinction bc of the human race.It truley is a very sad thought.
