Animal Abuser Michael Vick Wants to Get a Dog

Megan Van Schaick

michael vickMichael Vick seems to think that we are all stupid enough to forget those itty bitty wittle atrocities he committed. The rape and torture of dogs, brutal training -- and don't forget the horrid fights he orchestrated and profited off of.

There are only two other reasons I can think of that he would actually come out and say he wants a dog:

1. He's just that clueless about what he did -- in which case, he should be left to rot until it sinks in.

2. He is so arrogant that he really believes he can convince the world that owning a dog would be even the remotest of options.

But Vick's own reason for wanting a dog is the best of all ...

He believes the pet will help him rehabilitate.

Vick must have caught a few episodes of Pit Bulls and ParoleesHe says, "I think just to have a pet in my household and to show people that I genuinely care, and my love and my passion for animals; I think it would be outstanding. If I ever have the opportunity again I will never take it for granted. I miss having a dog right now. I wish I could."

Is he freaking insane?!

This is like setting a fresh kill in front of Jeffrey Dahmer. Like offering a gaggle of kids to a pedophile. People who commit such atrocities don't change.

Allowing him to have a dog is tantamount to letting him win -- he's already gotten the swank football contract back and now he wants to see if he can get the one thing expressly forbidden to him. It's not a touchy-feely warmness that fills Vick's heart at the thought of owning a dog, it's the thrill of winning and pulling one over on the system.
