Protesting Outside the Michael Vick Hearing
I’m sure you already know that Michael Vick, star of the Atlanta Falcons, will be on trial this Fall for charges related to dogfighting. It’s insane that a guy who makes millions of dollars a year would get himself anywhere near the horrifying world of dogfights, but the indictment does seem to suggest a link between his property and this horrifying, illegal activity. I wonder why watching animals fight is more appealing than a real physical challenge like, oh, say cage fighting.
So yesterday, PETA protesters (including several peta2 Street Teamers) and hundreds of members of the public stood outside the U.S. District Court in Richmond, Virginia, to support vigorous prosecution of Michael Vick and the three other men charged in this horrific dogfighting case.
