Default Feds search Vick's property in Virginia..

http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/news?slu...v=ap&type=lgns

SURRY, Va. (AP) -- Federal agents investigating possible dogfighting searched property owned by Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick on Friday.

Portsmouth's WAVY-TV broadcast video of investigators working under a blue tarp on a portion of Vick's wooded property in southeastern Virginia. They were sifting dirt collected in white buckets and clearing brush. Some wore T-shirts with the wording "POLICE."

early indications show that Vick's name is not mentioned in the court filings that were filed. to me that bodes quite well for Vick. maybe he is already cooperating with the Feds in their greater/national investigations and sting operations. if he is, I say kudos to him and not letting the snitch mentality blind him from what is really the ethical and moral thing to do.

Some of this just makes me want to puke. If I see Vicks mug again in my lifetime, it will be too soon.


Feds detail Vick allegations

SURRY, Va. (AP) A property owned by Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick was used as the "main staging area for housing and training the pit bills involved" in an alleged dogfighting operation, according to court documents.
The papers, filed by federal authorities Monday in U.S. District Court in Richmond and obtained Friday by the Associated Press, contain the address of the Vick property that has been the center of the investigation. Vick is not named in the documents.

On Friday, federal agents again searched the property. They finished their work at about 4:30 p.m. and declined to answer reporters' questions as they left.

According to the documents, dog fights have been sponsored by "Bad Newz Kennels" at the property since at least 2002. For the events, participants and dogs traveled from South Carolina, North Carolina, Maryland, New York, Texas and other states.

Members of the venture also knowingly transported, delivered and received dogs for animal fighting, the documents state.

Fifty-four animals were recovered from the property during searches in April, along with a "rape stand," used to hold dogs in place for mating; an electric treadmill modified for dogs; and a bloodied piece of carpeting, the documents said.

The documents said the fights usually occurred late at night or in the early morning and would last several hours. The winning dog would win from "100's up to 1,000's of dollars," and participants and spectators also would place bets on the fight.

Before fights, the participating dogs of the same sex would be weighed and bathed, according to the filings. Opposing dogs would be washed to remove any poison or narcotic placed on the dog's coat that could affect the other dog's performance. Sometimes participants would not feed a dog before the fight to "make it more hungry for the other dog," the documents said.

Fights would end when one dog died or with the surrender of the losing dog, which was sometimes put to death by drowning, strangulation, hanging, gun shot, electrocution or some other method, according to the documents.

During a June search of the property, investigators uncovered the graves of seven pit bulls that were killed by members of "Bad Newz Kennels" following sessions to test whether dogs would be good fighters, the documents said.

The article contains more for those who wish to view all of it.....

If Tank Johnson gets released from the Bears for speeding at 3:00 A.M, then Vick should be banned from the NFL for life..

There is no way Vick didn't know this was happening.

Has anyone read ANYTHING at all about what the NFL is doing about this? Are they conducting their own investigation, or do you think they are just praying it will all go away so they dont have to face the fall out from not only MVs involvement, but, numerous other players as well. Does Auther Blank have some sort of power within the NFL, other than TONS of money? Something just does NOT seem right about this investigation.

They are sitting around with their thumb up there butts waiting for the investigation to get done.
