A hearing is scheduled for Aug. 5 on whether to revoke Vickís suspended sentence, which could land him in jail, according to the Virginian-Pilot.

He is accused of not complying with provisions of an alcohol safety and awareness program. Vick pleaded guilty in October to driving drunk, eluding a police officer and driving on the wrong side of the road.

A judge suspended a one-year jail sentence, fined Vick $530 and took away his driverís license for a year. Marcus Vick was released by the Miami Dolphins in 2007."

Something tells me these
two did not have proper parenting.

And, never mind the sad scenario
of I lived in a bad neighborhood;
it is all too common of an excuse
and useless in this day & age.

These kind of adults set very
bad examples to the younger

Plant trees for life......

I think you are so right in that assessment..and I also agree it is no excuse..none whatsoever..
As adults we have to take responsibility for our actions and not blame anyone or anything else for it..
Thanks B. M.

Ah yes, the family that offends together stays together. As far as taking responsibility, I think someone needs to define the word for those to jackasses.

Oops, I meant those TWO jackasses.

It always worth a try. But he should be sentenced severely for violating his probation.

Absolutely agree.. Winefred..he needs to be punished for the violation..and a very serious one at that..Drunk driving kills way too many people..
Not sure what good forgiving would do..I have seen very loving caring families..all willing to forgive..yet..they seem to go right back out and repeat the wrongs..
