___I ran across this photograph yesterday, and the first thing that it brought to my mind. Was the controversial dog fighting case against Michael Vick. And the fact that justice still has not rein true in that case. For the facts are that Mr. Vick was banned from ever owning a dog again, ever means never. And yet today he has a dog for his child. __Vick says that his son, should not have to pay the price for, his abuse against these animals. And the way I see it, is that maybe Vick should have thought of that. Before he started a dog fighting ring, and also murdered his dogs at his whim. And what bothers me is that there are people, who to this day say so what to him owning a dog. ___ButI think people that think it is o.k. for him to have a dog. Are people who would love to, watch his pitbull fighting ring. Nor could they careless that he murdered his dog's at will. This condition people have of allowing violent perpetrators, to get away with things. In the name of, well he served his time, and punishment. Well I ask this, to them how about the animals he killed, were they allow to be loved, and serve their time here. And the answer is an astounding, hell no they didn't! ___So as the title states, will there ever be real justice for, anyonethat may be being abused. With the attitude of well they did their time, I don't see that ever happening. And I also would add that, before long if Mr. Vick is allowed to have one dog. How long before he thinks he can have 2, or 3,or 4. Well you get the idea, and before long I see him as going back to his old ways of hiding his dogs. ___Then I will ask this too, how long befor e he is murdering these poor animals again. Once you are a violent perpetrator, that never goes away. I'm not saying that you can never change, but with that kind of behavior. Well it is never easy to stop being a violent person. Unless you are able to resolve the issues that made you that way in the first place. But that is hard for some big shots to do. ___What I am trying to say is, that never ever, ever should Michael Vick be allowed to posess a living animal again. And he should be held accountable for violating his court ordered sentence. If his son when he gets old enough to be on his own, wants a dog. Then God Bless him, and he can get one on his own.
