Quote:
Papers, filed earlier this month by federal authorities in U.S. District Court in Richmond, noted that dog fights have been sponsored by "Bad Newz Kennels" at the property since at least 2002.

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.

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.

Vick has claimed he rarely visits the Surry County home and was unaware of any criminal enterprise.

Default Michael Vick Indicted on Dog Fighting Charges

From MSNBC...

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/19814494/

"RICHMOND, Va. - A federal grand jury in Virginia indicted Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick on Tuesday in its investigation of illegal dog fighting.
Vick and three others are charged with violating federal laws against competitive dog fighting, procuring and training pit bulls for it and conducting the enterprise across state lines."

I guess they really wish they didn't let Schaub go!

"poor Vick"??? You gotta be kidding me. If, and it looks more certain now, he was involved in dogfighting, I hope they bury this jerk alive.

Cruelty to animals....what a jackoff.

Check out what this Poindexter cat is saying. I'm beginning to really dislike this Poindexter guy. IMO, the feds should look into him and the direction of his investigation before they took over.

Quote:
"What is foreign to me is the federal government getting into a dogfighting case," Poindexter said. "I know it's been done, but what's driving this? Is it this boy's celebrity? Would they have done this if it wasn't Michael Vick?"

Ted, I think you meen poor starving puppies that this deranged thug of a football player owned. Scoot over packman.

I can have no sympathy for a man who makes his kind of jack and does something this illegal.

He will be showering with some different teamates. Don't drop the soap.

Here's a link to the actual indictment paperwork. There's some pretty nasty details included in there. Executing dogs by means of hanging, strangulation, and electrocution? Seriously now.

Unfortunately, Vick will get off rather light compaired to the horrific nature of his crime.

Under Federal Sentencing Guidelines he gets a maximum 6 years in the federal pen and a $350,000.00 fine.

Too bad they can't bring the "rape stand" to his cell there at Club Fed and give eveyone in cellblock a chance to ride him...

Default Re: Breaking News: Vick Indicted

I have never understood folks who are in Vick's situation, with so much to lose, to leave themselves exposed like this, nor the folks who love it when a name of record may serve some time and, consequently, get into a Deliverance frenzy bordering on voyeuristic fantasy.

In my opinion this is the straw that broke Vick's back and has assured himself a ban for the year. He has destroyed his brand name and has damaged the NFL's brand name as this is news even if it were not Vick. I may have to go visit the Falcons board.
