Michael Vick Should Not Be Reinstated by the NFL

The NFL Should NOT Reinstate Michael Vick

Former Atlanta Falcons Quarterback Michael Vick’s federal prison sentence for running a brutal dog fighting ring ends Monday, July 20.  Now, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell must decide whether to lift Vick’s suspension and allow him to resume a sports career that not only rewards Vick mightily with money, but also necessarily places him in the position of role model to young people.

And sports stars cannot just disclaim that role model status.  We all know kids look up to sports stars.  They just do.

Please Petition the NFL to Keep Michael Vick Out

Now is the time to let Mr. Goodell know that you think Michael Vick is not fit to resume a career as a sports star.  What he personally did to the animals in his dog fighting operation is unconscionable.  Michael Vick personally tortured and killed numerous dogs.  For SPORT.  For his AMUSEMENT.  And for MONETARY GAIN.  Look what he and his cohorts did to his victims.  But be warned that these photos graphically illustrate Vick’s brutality.

His actions mark him as an inhumane individual who has forfeited any right to be placed on the pedestal to which our society elevates sports stars.

Please take the time to let Mr. Goodell and the NFL know that Michael Vick should not be reinstated by the NFL. Please sign the following petitions:
