Lucky kids don’t have Vick as a mentor

It’s should be no surprise that Vick is back in the news today. Some of the headlines read:

Michael Vick is giving the doubters a reason to doubt – Philadelphia Inquirer
Michael Vick fails to show for charity event in Philadelphia – Sporting News
Eagles QB Fighting for Forgiveness Not Doing Himself Any Favors– Bleacher Report

So apparently Vick missed a charity event in Philly yesterday. He was supposed be a part of an event for a group called, “What It Takes,” who provides mentors to kids who are at risk of dropping out of school.

I think this group got off lucky. Who would want Vick as a mentor? He’s a self absorbed scumbag who had the talent to earn millions of dollars, but decided to spend his free time torturing animals. He would rip out the teeth of his female dogs so that they couldn’t defend themselves as they were strapped to the rape stand for breeding. He even threw his family pets into the dog fighting ring and laughed as they would be ripped apart. Those kids should consider themselves lucky.

Conflicting reports have Vick either simply not showing or canceling at the last minute for a personal conflict which required his appearance in Virginia. Either way there were 200 kids asking asking, “Where is Michael Vick?”

The Philly Inquirer goes on to say, “He has canceled two scheduled appearances that we know of this offseason: The Oprah Winfrey Show and now What It Takes. Is it a trend or an unfortunate coincidence? It is impossible to know.”

Impossible to know… just like it’s impossible to know if Vick is really rehabilitated or just playing the part. Now that he is back in some peoples good graces, I wouldn’t be surprised to see Vick canceling more and more charity events.

As the site the Ecorazzi puts it, “He’s a man who enjoyed watching dogs rip each other’s throats out while he laughed with his friends. He then went to prison for his illegal activities, got out and snagged a multi-million dollar contract. Not exactly the stuff heroes are made from.” We couldn’t agree more. He shouldn’t be a roll model or a mentor.

    IT IS A SHAME TO TALK ABOUT SOMEONE LIKE YOU HAVE JUST DID TO MV.HAVE YOU ASKED YOURSELF THE QUESTIION THAT THEIR MAYBE A REASON WHY HE CANCELLED .EVEN FOR OPRAH. AND THE THING OF IT IS IF PEOPLE ARE GOING TO KEEP CRITIZING HIM FOR WHAT HE HAS DONE AND WHAT HE HASN”T DONE . HE JUST MIGHT BE SAYING WHY SHOULD I BE TALKING TO TESE KIDS OR OTHER PEOPLE ARE THEY REALLY LISTING TO ME OR AM I JUST MAKING A FOOL OF MYSELF. REMEBER T.I. WHEN HE WENT TO MENTOR? I”m SURE HE HAD GOOD REASONS FOR CANCELLING HIS ENGAGEMENTS.LOVE HIM OR HATE HIM HE”S STILL A HUMAN BEING. SYLVIA

      I think it’s obvious that he canceled the event with Oprah because she was going to revisit this dog fighting operation, and it would have done more harm to his reputation than good. It’s better for him to keep a low profile, and not be in the public spot light. His PR people know this, and the Eagles know this. That is why Oprah was canceled.

      Also comparing Vick to T.I. is like comparing apples to oranges. T.I. went to jail for illegally hording guns. Vick was put in jail for fighting and torturing animals. T.I. cooperated with the authorities, and he’s expressed real remorse. Vick lied to cops, failed a lie detector test and tested positive for drugs all before he was sentenced, and the community service that Vick is doing now is court ordered.

      In Vick’s case, you should look at the laundry list of things he’s done. Like the steroid allegation and him knowingly giving STDs to his sexual partners. He has had so many problems off the field that when he was playing pro football in Atlanta, he was known as a “coach killer”. He just isn’t a good person. He’s a scumbag.

      According to a November 2008 ESPN.com news story, a report prepared by the USDA’s inspector general-investigations division revealed that Vick, Purnell Peace, Quanis Phillips and Tony Taylor also put family pet dogs into the ring with trained pit bulls.
      The report, dated Aug. 28, 2008, says, “Vick, Peace and Phillips thought it was funny to watch the pit bull dogs belonging to [Vick’s] Bad Newz Kennels injure or kill the other dogs.”

      Still a human being? Not quite Sylvia. Michael Vick is a full blown psychopath. Psychopaths get their kicks by inflicting tremendous pain on others. Psychopaths do not change and cannot be rehabilitated, they only become more clever at disguising their pathology.

    Cancelling out appearances?
    Not the least bit surprised.
    We all know his faux “rehabilitation” was bought an paid for:

    ” Best Friends took 22 of Vick’s 48 seized dogs and the only contact we’ve received from Vick or his representatives was by way of some overtures from his agent, one of his attorneys and a PR firm specializing in reputation rehabilitation. They were interested in some public glad handing that would put Vick in a favorable light with the NFL, which at the time was still considering whether or not to reinstate him. We declined.
    Best Friends has never heard from Michael Vick or any of his representatives inquiring after the health or well being of any of the 22 dogs that we received from his fighting ring.”
