WARNING: Kirk's royally pissed off. Foul language ahead. Upsetting photo, as well. You've been warned.
The atrocities committed by that repugnant halfwit Michael Vick have consequences that are as heartbreaking as they are ironic. It would seem that the solution as to what to do with all the dogs Vick was torturing – the ones that escaped being killed – is to…
…wait for it…
You read that right. The rigors Vick put the pit bulls through have turned them into vicious animals incapable of being rehabilitated and will likely result in the dogs being put down. The Associated Press reports:
RICHMOND, Va. – More than 50 pit bulls seized from Michael Vick's property face a Thursday deadline to be claimed. If no one comes forward, they could be euthanized.
Federal prosecutors filed court documents last month to condemn 53 pit bulls seized in April as part of the investigation into dogfighting on the Vick's property…
Though [U.S. District Judge Henry E.] Hudson, who also is handling Vick's criminal case, will determine what becomes of the pit bulls, [PETA spokeswoman Daphna] Nachminovitch said that it's likely that they will be euthanized because they're not adoptable as pets.
"These dogs are a ticking time bomb," she said. "Rehabilitating fighting dogs is not in the cards. It's widely accepted that euthanasia is the most humane thing for them.”
I understand the logic. I do. And while I can’t find adequate justification for having Vick “euthanized” (even though he, too, is a ticking time bomb), I do feel that the public would be best served keeping a guy like him in prison for life.
Now before you go rolling your eyes right out of your head at the audacity of that opinion, consider the statistics concerning animal cruelty as a precursor to serial killing. Now consider the calculated manner in which Vick tormented these dogs and the inhuman lack of compassion it signifies. I'm not suggesting Vick is a strangled puppy away from becoming the next Son of Sam, but the way I see it, society has absolutely no use for a guy whose only skills are torturing animals and throwing a stupid fucking ball.*
*sigh* The best I can hope for is that during the short time he is in jail, some other psychopath will shove a sharpened pipe through his spleen. After sodomizing him, of course. He definitely deserves to be royally corn-holed before he bleeds out.
