Great. Now urban baby thugs who look up to him will see dog fighting and dog murder as nothing more than “immature” behavior. That’s not exactly “taking responsibility for his actions”. I wonder if his new God friend told him to say that? What a scumbag. You can take the homie out of the ghetto but...
I can't question the sincerity of Vick's apology because I don’t know him. That being said, the most impressive aspect of his apology was that he took the time to memorize the talking points his attorneys must have provided - asking kids to learn from his errors, rejecting dog-fighting and begging for forgiveness. ... If nothing else, Vick finally seems to grasp that his actions, beyond being illegal, were considered heinous by most Americans. The only part of the apology that rang hollow for me was when he claimed that he had always "accepted responsibility" for his actions. When the story first broke, Vick tried to pin everything on his friends, claiming he didn't know what they'd been doing with his money. That was not just wrong, but stupid. When Vick's buddies saw that he was going to let them take the entire rap, they turned state's evidence.
There’s nothing respectable about any of his words or actions. He was not sincere. Like most scumbags, he only regrets getting caught. The only grasping he did was at forgiveness in hopes of saving his career.
