April Murder May Link to Vick Dogfighting Ring

As if already going to prision is not enough, Falcons QB Michael Vick’s “Bad Newz Kennels” dogfighting operation is now being linked to the murder of a breeder in North Carolina.  38-year-old Roy Thomas Melton was found murdered by a friend in mid-April, and now after finding a large amoun of money and drugs, authrorites have also found records that link dogs that Melton had back to the kennel that Vick ran.

The investigation found 33 pit bulls on the property of Melton, and those were euthanized.  County sheriff David Huffman said it was clear that the dogs on the property were bred and trained for dogfighting.  As of right now all Huffman is saying is that they will meet with federal authorities soon and they will compare if the dogs on Melton’s property truly came from Vick’s kennels in Virgina.  At that point they will decide if to question anyone from Vick’s dogfighting operation.

    What Michael Vick did I do not find right. It is a disquisting sport and is sickening. However, I still do not believe he did anythign wrong no matter how disquisting it may be. I dont belive there should be a penalty for dog fighting. It is no worse than shooting a duck. Michael Vick is just being used as a scapegoat by all those redneck southern republicans. Truely, not only should vick not be awarded he should be praised. He admitted he was wrong. Truely, I would now love to see dog fighting become the National american sport. I love dogs, they are my favorite animals. But I think all the people against Vick should shut the F*** up.
