Vick’s Letters Begging Leniency

Former NFL star Michael Vick and some of his supporters (such as his mom, Hank Aaron, Warrick Dunn, and George Foreman) wrote letters to U.S. District Judge Henry E. Hudson asking the judge to be lenient when sentencing Vick for financing dogfighting and helping to kill animals.

You can read the letters here.  I found it very interesting and moving reading Vick’s letter to the judge.  I’m trying to put myself in the situation of begging for freedom.  I know of his guilt and understand he needs to be punished regarding the laws of our land, but there is something about a man being on top of the world regarding fame and wealth and now begging for freedom.

One Response to Vick’s Letters Begging Leniency

    And so would you have the same amount of sympathy if it was Bubba, from the trailer park, who had brutally killed many dogs and financed the death of many animals?

    I think Vick is probably a decent guy who got wrapped up with scum. But the judicial system doesn’t care. They are there to assess guilt, levy judgement, and punish the wrong doers. Any letters from people looking to get back to their job should be weighed with equal consequence, regardless of their previous income.
