im sure this has been gone over hundreds of times here before so i dont want to start anything, and dont get me wrong i love my dogs, but the guy has lost millions and millions of dollars and has had serious damage done to his reputation because he killed some dogs and helped finance a dog fighting ring. Donte Stallworth killed a guy while driving drunk and I have not seen any real national news source spending serious time on the story... Vick's punishment did not fit the crime.

Vick's punishment absolutely fitted the crime, and I hope to god Stallworth is punished properly for his crime too. Vick's case was a bigger story in the media because he was a mega-star, the face of a franchise, and a major face in the new NFL. Stallworth is a talented football player, but his similarity with Vick ends there. Is vehicular homicide worse that animal cruelty? Of course. That doesn't make what Vick did any less disgusting, they are two totally separate cases.

I agree Met, 2 completely separate cases. Honestly I dont think it is important for a case to get media attention. I don't care if the story comes up on every news show in America, as long as justice is served.
