Why the Rush to Forgive Michael Vick?

I just don't understand it. Even some people who think he behaved horribly want to give him a second chance. They say it's the only fair thing to do, everyone makes mistakes, he's served his time, it's only the "Christian" thing to do, blah, blah, blah.

What if, instead of hanging and drowning dogs, Sick Vick were involved in hanging and drowning people? Would we be in such a hurry to forgive and forget? Following that logic, why were we so quick to condemn Jeffrey Dahmer? He did some sick things, but the poor guy couldn't help himself! Perhaps he deserved a second chance. Wouldn't it have been Christian to just release him and hope he could redeem himself through a high-profile, lucrative contract? Perhaps he just needed a mentor or, even better, a hug!

Of course not. We can't compare the two. Because he killed humans and only humans matter in this world remember?

Has he really done any worse than humans who confine, torture, murder and eat sentient animals every day?
