Michael Vick was reinstated to the NFL today, although he has not been selected by a team, and there are conditions.

I don't believe any conditions are acceptable to his being reinstated. This is an outrage, that anyone would hire this murderer.

I read the news sometimes, and it amazes me that most people who read Fox Sports, and other sports pages as well, think "he's paid his dues". What if it were humans, children, who he taught to fight and kill each other. They would be up in arms.

Who are humans to place ourselves above any other creation of the Almighty, (God, Universe, Hindu, Buddha, Islam, etc). We don't "own" animals. We are to protect them, respect them, and provide for them. Not use them as possessions, disposable, objects; even though that is the law.

I don't recall the exact words, but there is a famous saying that goes something like this, A country is only as good as it treats its animals. What does this say about us?
