Fox host Tucker Carlson: Michael Vick should have been executed
Fox host Tucker Carlson: 'Vick should have been executed'
I was an original critic of Vic! Though I thought once again Obama has overstepped his bounds by commending the NFL for giving him a second chance I think the system has worked right in this case. The idea is supposed to be to make people pay for their crime, reform them if they deserve it, and return them to society as productive members. He is married and has children and I think at this point he is remorseful and has stepped up. I am sure his children have played a big role in him being embarrassed and stepping up.
I was not forgiving at first so let me give you a brush up: Originally I asked' What does Vick's vicious stupidity say of our Overall Morality? What should happen to him? Can his case help society? I now believe it is one of the first horrible offenses and resultant prison terms and fines paid largely due to the character Vick has since portrayed that has been a character builder for our society.
I have been caught up with our crumbling infrastructure, our financial disaster, crumbling lifestyle, and our crumbling leadership and degrading environmental conditions around the world but particularly America. I have been following the sick case of Michael Vick particularly wondering what could make a person of his stature be so inhuman and with so much to lose? Then I started gathering information that is out there because I started as usual to think of the big picture, that being the state of American morality.
When I first started writing I was motivated to write about life in the Trenches of Society and it encompassed a history of American Morality and how we must regain it to succeed into the 21st century. This unbelievable behavior by Vick and sadly numerous instances today shows our morality is an indication that our society as a whole is racing towards the demise of the Roman Empire.
I posed the question can we use this outrageous example of inhumanity to help our society? How do you think this should have panned out? How do you think this will pan out? Should they let him have a dog? Let's review what is known and tell me what you think!
If you need a brush up as to the specifics behind his horrible crimes,and conviction and how strongly I felt about what he did, the story and the links are Here
I hope you read the awful truth at the link. I am not a Michael Vick or an Atlanta Falcons fan. I am all about Tom Brady and the Patriots but as you know, I do stand for honesty and the right thing done regardless of how I personally feel or am affected. That said, I understand how well Vick is playing but that matters not to me. He has shown remorse and great concern to do the right thing and be a leading example.
He will be watched daily of course but I think it is right for him to have a dog. It would be interesting to see what he picks for his kids. It is typical Fox news insanity but saying he should have been executed even no is a bit harsh.He did the crime and did the time. It is time to move on. I think he has been a fine example of how our legal system should work but most often does not. What say you?
