Two co-defendants in the Michael Vick dogfighting case pleaded guilty to a conspiracy charge Friday in federal district court and agreed to "fully cooperate" with prosecutors building a case against Vick, the Atlanta Falcons quarterback.The walls are closing in on Michael Vick as they should. Anyone who could participate in the sadistic cruelty outlined in these chagres does not deserve to walk free among us.
Purnell Peace of Virginia Beach and Quanis Phillips of Atlanta become the third co-defendants to plead guilty of conspiracy to travel interstate commerce in aid of unlawful activities and conspiring to sponsor a dog in an animal fighting venture.
In April 2007, according to Phillips's statement, he, along with Peace and Vick, "tested" dogs by "putting the dogs through fighting sessions . . . to determine which animals were good fighters."Real justice would be to put Mr. Vick in the ring with a pack of these dogs and see what happens. He didn't need the money so you have to wonder why he would take such a risk. It would appear that he is a sadistic low life. I hope the prosecutors will throw the book at him. I would love to see a plea deal fall apart and have him face a lengthly prison sentence.
The three men "executed approximately eight dogs that did not perform well."
The dogs were killed "by various methods including hanging and drowning," according to the documents.
His NFL contract should be cancelled and he should never grace the playing field again. It is the only response that should be accepted from the NFL.
