More Commentary on Michael Vick
The hilarious dog blog, Life With Dogs, has a commentary on Michael Vick’s 60 Minutes interview with James Brown over the weekend. We at Frankie the Law Dog couldn’t agree more with their assessment.
Meanwhile, Sports Illustrated is reporting that James Brown has one regret about an unasked question during the interview. Vick indicated that he “allowed” things to happen to the dogs. Brown regrets that he did not follow up on that with additional questions, seeing as how Vick actually killed dogs with his own hands.
Suggesting that he “allowed” things to “happen” to the dogs is a cop-out and not an acknowledgment of responsibility. It certainly is not an indication of remorse. Apparently, Vick is still reluctant to fully acknowledge that he personally – with his own hands – tortured, maimed and killed dogs.
Mason Lerner of thefastertimes.com says he believes (or wants to believe – Lerner admits he’s skeptical) that Vick’s statement “I could have put a stop to it” amounts to putting “all the blame squarely where it belongs.” In other words, Lerner believes that statement is a full acknowledgment of responsibility.
Judge for yourself. The entire interview is embedded into the article.
