Why Michael Vick will beat the case

1. He's rich and the justice system tends to bend to the will of the rich. Black or white. Ask The Juice (sorry).

2. All the info we have been getting is from the dude who just copped a plea. Just keep that in mind. Don't rule out sour grapes from a Turtle who got kicked out of the Vick Entourage. Two years ago Vick kicked this snitch out of the crib.

3. They need more than a snitch to connect Vick to criminal activity on his property. More witnesses, photos, something. Just because you own a crib doesn't mean you are responsible or lible for criminal activities on said property.

4. Witnesses can be bought. Indirectly, additional snitches will be bought out. Or they 'will get their stories straight' like Alberto Gonzalez and a DOJ aide.

5.Snitches are easy to discredit. Unless a smoking gun comes out I see reasonable doubt all over this. No matter what public opinion says the burden is on the prosecution.

6. If Ray Ray can beat a homocide charge and Kobe can beat a rape charge Vick can beat a dog fighting charge.

At the end of the day I want Vick to beat it. Because this shit ain't right. I own a dog so I hate the images conjured up. But keep the fake outrage. PETA - ok, that's what you do, but the rest of you be outraged at the Katrina survivors still living in squalor. Be outraged about childhood obesity. Or the diabetes eidemic in the Black community. Be outraged at the lack of gun control. Don't front like dog fighting keeps you up at night. Be honest you want to see Michael go down.

Corn row wearing, middle finger giving, can't stay in the pocket, changing the QB position, protecting your wild younger brother, Hip-Hop generation, filthy rich, unapologetic nigga. Yeah I said it.

Don't front. The system hates Michael Vick. And they are a lot of wicked people who hate him for his swagor. Black and white people who want to see him taken down a notch.

Not me. For all the right reasons and some wrong.

DO you view everything through a hip hop lens? Although I agree with a lot of what you say, you cannot take away the fact that if he is in fact involved he is a basic savage, yeah, the same neighborhood killing, school terrorizing, purse snatching, drug dealing, criminal from the streets... that white people wrongly equate to hip hop, he can just throw a ball. It is unfortunate that he is black but if you konw anything about the south, the black folks are usually the ones that are into this dogfightitng shit. And although it is certainly not as bad as th eother examples you showed it still is what it is. A rich savage showing his true colors. Why was he (allegedly) doing this? For the money? Entertainment? What? I dont get it. You proping him up is wrong, just because you want to paint him as a "Corn row wearing, middle finger giving, can't stay in the pocket, changing the QB position, protecting your wild younger brother, Hip-Hop generation, filthy rich, unapologetic nigga." Does not make the it right...if he is in fact guilty.

Ray Ray and Kobe weren't federal cases. All it takes is two people to say that Vick did something and he's charged. Biggie said it best, "shit's official, only, the feds i fear".

I do view everything through a hip-hop lens. for better or worse. How about yourself?

not sure how I was 'propping him up' but read my forst point. I need more info to make sure this story is true. There is literally only one voice speaking.

and 'he can only throw a ball' is like saying all Skaespeare do was write or all Denzel can do is act. Trivializing a bit for your own argument

he put himself in this situation and will have to deal with it.

To the second cat, yeah these are the feds but homicide is a more serious charge as it were

We'll just have to wait and see about this one. I agree with you Wes that more info/evidence is needed.

But no matter the outcome, the lesson is clear:

You don't fu*k around with people's pets in this country.

Wes -

What I can't stand is the feeling that he's guilty just because there is an indictment. The prosecution still needs to prove its case and if they can't do that, then Vick isn't guilty no matter what people THINK he did or WANT TO BELIEVE he did. So I'm reserving judgment until the case is over. We don't need another Duke lacrosse case on our hands - and where was the outrage in the white community after those indictments were handed down?
