Michael Vick Indicted in Dogfighting case!!

Aroooo!!! Some good news! The Washington Post reported this morning that a federal grand jury in Richmond indicted Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick and three other men yesterday on charges related to their alleged operation of a dogfighting ring based at a property Vick owns in southeastern Virginia.

If convicted, Vick could face a total of up to six years in prison and $350,000 in fines. He could face additional discipline by the NFL, even if he is not convicted.Vick's associates, Purnell Peace, Quanis Phillips and Tony Taylor, were indicted on the same charges.

Dogfighting is a felony in Virginia and 47 other states. Transporting dogs over state lines for dogfighting is a federal crime.

I think they should force Michael Vick to provide the amount of all his earnings from betting he ever made off of this horrible act and donate that amount to the Humane Society.

Shame on him!
