Embattled football star Michael Vick, who pleaded guilty to federal charges last month, faces more legal trouble after the prosecutor in the rural Virginia county where his dogfighting took place said he will seek to indict the former Atlanta Falcon quarterback, authorities said yesterday.

“Most of the matters that I’m presenting have already been admitted in sworn statements authored by the defendants in the federal proceedings,” said Surry County Commonwealth’s Attorney Gerald Poindexter.

Vick pleaded guilty to conspiracy charges Aug. 27 in a Virginia federal court growing out of his involvement in a dogfighting business. Vick, who faces up to five years behind bars, will be sentenced Dec. 10 on the federal charges. Poindexter did not detail the charges in the indictments he plans to pursue, but said his investigation and the federal probe are focused on different crimes.

Michael Vick chose the proper name for his dogfighting business venture “Bad Newz Kennels”, because since this whole thing started it has been a straight downward slope. He might be locked up for a minute. SMH.

    We still talking about this Vick sh*t? So what if they are new charges? Still same old Michael Vick. Moved on to other stories…Senator Larry Craig trying to pick men in bathroom stalls, OJ Simpson gets arrested, Britney ups herself on the stupidity quotient… just no interest in hearing about Michael Vick.

    Go screw yourself thats my opinion and if you don’t like stick your head up your booty and holla with your dumb ass!

    Another black man about to lose everything he worked hard for because he made a stupid mistake. Stop taking the bait.

    You know what, I don’t agree with dogfighting (and the grown-ass men who are participating in it should be shamed…damn invest your money and stop trying to come-up) BUT when is enough just that…enough?

    What do they want? Mike to serve life in prison. You know what saddens me the most about this entire situation? The fact that the American people will go into an outrage about an animal being abused, however, if it wasn’t for mostly Black blogs you would have barely heard about the young West VA woman who was tortured.

    Why aren’t people in an uproar about that? And what about the people (besides cute white kids) that come up missing everyday…why aren’t people upset over that? Or the three college kids who were executed for nothing…why aren’t people still talking about that case?

    Its a damn shame that people in this country care more about animal rights then human beings…fyck Mick Vick and dogfighting the United States has more urgent problems to be addressed. Real criminals get slaps on the wrist for child molestation, torture, murder, aduction and rape…but these fools in the USA are worried about some damn Michael Vick.SMH:-(

    If I offended someone…my apologies but people we have soldiers in Iraq losing their lives for nothing. I just think all the media and justice system are trying to get the American public to focus on Vick’s case to take focus off of the more serious matters going on in this country.

    We have an Administration in the White House right now that are constantly breaking laws and have distinguished Government Officials taking the stand lying under oath for them. Yet we are focused on this shyt…c’mon now, “WE” can’t be serious.

    @ Mz_Magnificent1

    You are so right. You know the media isn’t going to put the spotlight on that young woman because she is african american and upper lower to lower middle class. I love animals but God put Man above the animals

    I mean well DAYUM! just throw the whole bookcase at him! geez, he’s gonna pay for what he’s done, white folks aint happy till he’s str8t crucified. gosh they love them pets!

    my dude/friend that got locked up said the judge wanted to make an example out of him, Vic a black male celebrity athlete that’s actually in the wrong!!??.. GOODNIGHT. they lovin makin this “national example”…give it a rest. I dont ever wanna have to go to court I swear, not even for tickets..

  • DW

    Abuse and torture is abuse and torture and its all the same sickness regardless of whether it happens to people or to animals and whether its done by some idiot pro athlete, a redneck, a gangsta the US Military or a group of hired Blackwater thugs. Trying to run the whole sordid history of race and racial prejudice up the flag pole again over the likes of Michael Vick is just not going to help anything.

    @DW

    I assume all of you who are condemning Michael Vick are vegetarians?

  • JillyBean819

    I am absolutely sick as to how people can say ‘it’s only a dog’ or ‘who cares if a few dogs die’. Do you think that animals don’t feel pain or something? I can’t imagine harming an animal. I practically cry when I come close to hitting a squirrel…and they annoy the hell out me.

  • nahnah

    jillybean819 must be a vegetarian.

  • Abiyah

    “Whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.” Therefore, judge not, that ye be not judged. For the same judgement you pass on your fellow man, you shall be judged accordingly. I am sure that there are things in your life that you are not proud of…things that are a crime and punishable by law…things that you deserve to suffer for…secret things…destestable and pervesrse things…things that would tear your world apart if anyone found out. Remember this, just because your filth was not presented to the grand jury and made public on the national stage doesn’t make you any less guilty. For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God. We are all subject to fall, lest you forget. Wishing bad things to befall someone only causes the universe to pour misfortune into your own life. “Death and life are in the power of the tongue”. Speak life!

    Horrors inflicted at our bidding

    NFL player Michael Vick has pleaded guilty to federal dogfighting charges. Subjecting animals to any kind of abuse is evil and cowardly. The majority of persons who are judging Michael Vick are nothing more than hypocrites.

    Millions of animals are slaughtered in factory farms each year. Not only are they forced to live in deplorable, inhumane conditions, they are drugged, tortured, maimed, slaughtered, boiled and skinned alive while fully conscious. Anyone who eats meat, cheese, eggs or drinks a glass of milk is directly responsible for the premeditated murder, torture and abuse of an innocent animal.

    People who eat or use animal products are in effect paying slaughterhouse worker “hitmen” and “hired guns” to abuse and kill animals for them so they can wolf down a hot dog in five minutes. I have asked many self-proclaimed “dog/animal lovers” to view videos on the Web sites of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, all-creatures.org and Humane Farming Association, and the majority refuse because they don’t want to know or get upset. Hypocrites!

    @nahnah

    lolololol u r funny

  • nahnah

    natalia,

    you must be a vegetarian.

    you must not eat innocent chickens who are packed together in factory farms, choked to death, for selfish human enjoyment.

    you must not eat innocent cows who are packed together, injected with a bunch of hormones, and murdered brutually for your own enjoyment.

    you must not eat pigs who are tortured and murdered for your own enjoyment.

    if you do, then you’re no different than michel vick.

    the only difference between the dogs michael vick killed and the innocent animal you had on your plate earlier is that michael vick didn’t eat them.

    animal torturing is rampant in america. millioins of animals are killed just to please humans, make us fat and give us cholesterol and blood pressure problems.

    there’s no reason for a mcdonald’s in every corner.

    there’s no reason for a kfc in every corner.

    but there is!

    because we as a society.

    enjoy torturing animals.

    hunting is a big sport in america, and it’s LEGAL. killing innocent animals for the hell of it is WRONG regardless of how it’s done.

    corporate america kill millions of animals in the name of PROFIT. humans don’t need to consume so much meat, but we do anyway for our own ENJOYMENT.

    Michael Vick should not be treated any differntly from those who own factor famering or those who fish and/or hunt as a hobby. KILLING IS KILLING.

  • Kizz My Azz

    Mike might as well take a Dirt Nap…Because he is dead…and buried…

  • Nikki

    if you do the crime, do the damn time!

  • Delta Diva

    Ok, Vick has been punished, not only will he probably not play in the NFL again but he will spend a couple of years in prison. The point I think most of you are trying to make is that the system is using Vick as an example. I’ve seen people who have murdered HUMANS get off with less time. I don’t condone what Vick did b/c it was wrong and he should be punished however, this prosecuter in VA is just trying to make a name for hisself. Plain and simple.

    If we are going to put people in jail for killing dogs, that make duck hunting or turkey hunting or deer hunting-Are those animals any less important! Let’s also put people in jail for drinking and driving while intoxciated with other drugs such as Coke- America has a double standard…period. We try to justify one act by giving punishment but when a crime is much worse like molestation of children or murder, we give them a slap on the wrist.

  • brwnbarbie

    I can’t believe VA is pressing charges too!!! It seemed unlikely that they would since the feds have the case, but I should have known they would want a piece of the action too. Good grief…

    ^^^^@ Common sense–

    I can understand your feelings as far as the “my family was never harrassed, probably because…” However– I’d like for YOU to try any of the following and get back with me. I’d like to know how things turned out–

    1. Hail a cab in Midtown Manhattan in the evening hours. Note how many will pass you before one actually STOPS!

    2. Watch how women will clutch their purse, briefcase or, personal effects closer to them as you approach and pass.

    3. Notice how (this is the best one) your change from a purchase is sometimes “placed” on the counter instead of in your hand!

    4. If you should visit a department store, take notice of how you’re given “preferred treatment and attention” by the cutsomer service associate(s).

    5. In this day and age where check writing has become all but obsolete, if you STILL write them–turn one of your cancelled checks over and examine it v-e-r-y careful. I’m almost positive there is a “code” which someone has written if you are a BM or BF. This is normally done when presenting the check for purchases.

    My point is–to some, no matter how well spoken you are, your education, your income potential and or level, at the end of the day YOU ARE BLACK! We are not separated by social status or being–we are almost ALWAYS grouped. And when we are–the outcome or opinion is usually not positive!

    Thanks—

    BTW–

    Things like that happen to “light skinned” blacks, too!

    Again, Thanks!!
