How much is that doggie in the window
I know this opinion isn't very popular, but...
I think the Michael Vick dogfighting thing is a bit overblown. I don't think you should get 2 yrs in jail for killing a few dogs.
I know animal cruelty is a huge issue for a lot of people. And I don't believe in deliberate wanton cruelty either. I just don't place it near as high on the priority scale as most people.
I envision the following conversation:
Angry Animal Person: I think it's absolutely horrible what those men did to those dogs. Two years isn't enough!
Bryan: Well, with children being abused and going hungry and poor people in need of medical care and homeless people needing psychiatric treatment, and disabled vets not getting limbs and about a million other things, I think the fact that they spent thousands of dollars pursing and executing this case is absurd and disgusting. Also dogfighting is crazy scary cool. Whaddaya think about that?
