Vick to Be Released Wednesday

Michael Vick is set to be released from Federal prison on Wednesday and will serve the remainder of his time in home confinement. There is already talk about him returning to the NFL. Yes, that's just what the NFL needs is a man who, according to his indictment:
In or about April 2007 Peace, Phillips and Vick executed approximately 8 dogs that did not perform well in testing sessions at 1915 Moonlight Road by various methods, including hanging, drowning and slamming at least one dog's body to the ground.
I don't care how sorry he is, or how many PETA public service announcements he tapes, he doesn't deserve to play in the NFL. What kind of sick mind stands there watching a dog hanging there gasping and kicking for his or her life? Seriously. That's not just making a mistake or falling in with the wrong crowd. That's just evil.

Mbarky,

I agree.

Even if he is released from prison, he should not be allowed to play in the NFL.

For professional sportspeople, criminal actions often have consequences which extend beyond the immediate criminal punishment, and in a case like this, it would be completely inappropriate for him to be allowed to return to professional football.
