Rap mogul and strong animal rights supporter, Russell Simmons, is urging those around Michael Vick to stop supporting the star quarterback. The embattled quarterback was recently indicted on charges of housing a dog fighting ring on his property.
According to the indictment, dogs that didn’t show enough fighting spirit, or that lost matches, were put to death by a variety of methods, including shooting, drowning, hanging and electrocution. Prosecutors allege that on one occasion earlier this year, Vick participated in killing eight dogs.

And by the way, I don’t need to hear anymore facts in the case – Vick owns the property and is tight with the people living on the property. If he actually didn’t know what was going on he should be sent to prison for twice as long as he might already be for being so naive. So if I was you I’d really just close my ears when it comes to any commentators looking to make a name for themselves by sticking up for Vick or anyone on his team too – he’s great guy, blah, blah, blah and everyone makes mistakes, right? True, everyone does make mistakes but when the mistakes are this pathetic you need to pay dearly for them…..and possibly for the rest of your life.
