STOP THE DECONSTRUCTION OF MICHAEL VICK

THIS PETITION WILL FIND ITS WAY TO: THE NFL, ATLANTA FALCONS, NEWS MEDIA, NIKE, PETA, ASPCA AND THE HUMANE SOCIETY LEADERSHIP. DUE PROCESS IS A RIGHT OF EVERY CITIZEN OF THE U.S. AND PETA, HUMANE SOCIETY, ASPCA HAVE BECOME JUDGE AND JURY IN THE MATTER OF MICHAEL VICK AND HIS RIGHT TO A JUST PROCESS AND FUTURE RECOVERY OF HIS LIFE. THEY ARE CREATING A VIRTUAL LYNCH MOB MENTALITY WITH NO REGARD FOR THE FUTURE OF A POTENTIALLY GOOD HUMAN BEING WHO AT WORSE HAS EXCERCISED POOR JUDGEMENT AND WILL BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE. WE MUST MOVE AGGRESSIVELY TO ASSURE THAT WHAT HAS ALLEGEDELY HAPPENED IS PRESENTED TO US (THE PUBLIC) IN FACT AS WELL AS IN A COURT OF LAW! REMEMBER DUKE! THESE ORGANIZATIONS ARE ASKING FOR THE DECONSTRUCTION OF A YOUNG LIFE AND YES AN AFRICAN AMERICAN YOUNG MALE WHO EVERY DAY HAS TO PROVE HE IS WORTHY OF DUE PROCESS AND REDEMPTION. I AM AN ANIMAL RIGHTS SUPPORTER! I LOVE DOGS! NOW THAT CLEARLY STATED, I AM AN ADAMANT SUPPORTER OF HUMAN RIGHTS AND DUE PROCESS. THE CURRENT SITUATION OF PREMIER ATHELETE, 27 YEAR OLD MICHAEL VICK IS A SAD COMMENTARY ON HOW THOSE ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE JOURNALISTIC AXIS CAN SYSTEMATICALLY AND IRRESPONSIBLY SHAPE PUBLIC OPINION INTO BOTH JUDGE AND JURY AND CREATE A VIRTUAL LYNCH MOB MENTALITY. WITH TWENTY-FOUR HOUR REAL TIME NEWS IT IS A HUGE RESPONSIBLITY BALANCING FAIR AND INFORMED REPORTING. IT REQUIRES EXCEPTIONAL CARE AND COURAGE. UNFORTUNATELY, THE REPORTING OF THIS CIRCUMSTANCE HAS MOVED FAR TO THE LEFT OF RESPONSIBLE OR COURAGEOUS. THE ACCOUNTS OF MICHAEL\'S INDICTMENT ARE FRAMED IN SUCH A MANNER THAT IT CONNECTS HIS ALLEGED BEHAVIOR TO A GLOBAL UNDERGROUND CONSPIRACY OF DOGFIGHTS AND ILLEGAL GAMES AND THEN ALMOST PARENTHETICALLY MAKES A STATEMENT ABOUT THE ALLEGED CHARGES AND HIS RIGHT TO DUE PROCESS (AFTER 30-40 PARAGRAPHS OF GRAPHIC DETAIL REGARDING THIS CRUEL "SPORT".) DOGS HAVE BEEN BRED FOR CENTURIES (OVER A THOUSAND YEARS) TO DO BATTLE TO THE DEATH IN AN ARENA CREATED ESPECIALLY FOR THE ROYALS OF THE TIMES. THIS IS NOT A NEW GAME IN TOWN BUT IT IS ILLEGAL. IF THESE ALLEGATIONS ARE TRUE PEOPLE SHOULD BE HELD ACCOUNTALBE. ANIMALS SHOULD BE RESPECTED AND CARED FOR INSIDE OF THEIR NATURE WITHIN THE FRAMEWORK OF CARING FOR OUR SOCIETY AND ITS ENVIRONMENT. WHAT THEN OF HUMAN BEINGS. MICHAEL IS YOUNG AND HAS BEEN THROWN INTO A RING OF FIRE SINCE THE EARLY AGE OF 20. ENORMOUS WEALTH, ENORMOUS RESPONSIBILITY AND VERY LITTLE GUIDANCE. IF WE ALLOW HIS CHARACTER TO BE ASSASSINATED AT THE BEGINNING OF HIS LIFETIME WHAT CAN WE EXPECT FROM SOMEONE WITH SUCH GREAT HUMAN POTENTIAL IN THE AFTERMATH. WHAT IF WE ARE WRONG HOW WILL HE BE RECOVERED HUMAN LIFE DOG LIFE. THERE ARE THREE SIDES TO EVERY STORY. YOURS, MINE AND THE TRUTH. SHOW THESE ORGANIZATIONS THAT THERE IS SUPPORT FOR DUE PROCESS AND MICHAEL\'S RIGHTS AND LEND YOUR SIGNATURE. PASS TO YOUR LISTS AND GET INVOLVED.

    7 years ago Comments: American people let's not forget what America stands for. That is Democracy! In a Democracy there is due process which has not happen in the case with Mr. Micheal Vick. Then there is the process of rehabilatation which he is entitle to. Then there is " IN GOD WE TRUST" which is symbloic in many ways, and is related to many issues pertaining to the Mr. Micheal Vicks circumstances. "IN GOD WE TRUST" is what we hope that America will forgive Mr. Vicks of poor judgement. "IN GOD WE TRUST" that white America will not continue to seek out a method of lynching our young black men without due process. Let's end the curse of the hanging tree. Cut the black man down from it that he will be free in what GOD has given to him in Amercia and that is DEMOCRACY
