Thread Name: BS: Michael Vick, dog-fighter, is an Eagle
Subject: RE: BS: Michael Vick, dog-fighter, is an Eagle
Agreed, irishenglish, except that the fluff interview is coming this Sunday evening on the "60 Minutes" TV program and, judging from the previews, it's no tearjerker. In fact, Vick looks absolutely devoid of emotion when he says he should have stopped the dogfighting operation and that he didn't "step up".
Problem is, he not only didn't stop it but he participated in it gleefully, according to reports, laughing as he tortured the dogs.
Vick is certainly going through the motions of remorse, but so far he seems to be a really bad actor. Let's not forget that he didn't change his plea from "not guilty" to "guilty" in 2007 until all three of his dog-fighting-business partners changed their pleas and implicated him; until then he was lyin' and denyin'. I think he is still in denial about what he did and about how evil it was.
Maybe, just maybe, he'll finally get it when he has to look some kid in the face while signing autographs, and hear that kid ask him why he hurt all those dogs.
