PETA to Vick: “No Profiting From Murderous Deeds…Like Our Show Does”

Vick is shopping around an apology book. The book is detailing the events that have taken him here. Well the PETA president is not having it:

Jailed dog-fighter Michael Vick is looking for a book deal, we hear. The former Atlanta Falcons star, now serving 23 months for taking part in a dog-fighting ring, is said to have literary agent Scott Waxman shopping a proposal for a memoir. And People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals is howling. “What will he call his book, ‘Vick: One Lucky Dog’?” asks PETA founder Ingrid Newkirk. “If Vick has started writing this book while in jail, the proceeds should fall under the rule that says a felon can’t profit from his murderous deeds.”

Waxman didn’t return calls, but no doubt Vick’s book would tell the saga of his rise from poverty to being the highest-paid player in the NFL. Vick, who is now in bankruptcy proceedings, has been told by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell that his chances of playing football again depend on whether he demonstrates sufficient remorse. So no doubt the book will be a big mea culpa.

Still, Newkirk argues, “Shame and contrition mean keeping a low profile and letting time tell that you’ve reformed, not angling for … a return to stardom and a book deal.” Since his victims were dogs, it may be unlikely that Vick’s book would be subject to the “Son of Sam Law,” named for David Berkowitz, the killer who took his commands from a dog named Sam. “The dogs don’t get their lives back,” snarls Newkirk. “They were kept in pens longer than he was.

Dammit PETA! Leave this man alone and let him live! You wont let him write a book on his wrong doings, but you will benefit from the dogs with the show you produced on Animal Planet?

  • Your Lust is Decomposing

    The man lost everything, served his time and now he is trying to do something commendable yet he is still condemed? Talk about Mark of the beast and the world not willing to forgive a convict. He didn’t torture dogs he was surrounding by fools and got to BIG in his own head. That’s right, lock em up for life let em all die! Nobody ever changes. Society, and some of the sick inhabitants. Let him LIVE!

  • Frankie says holla

    Why would anyone listen to that nutcase Ingrid Newkirk? This woman is mentally ill. She thinks animals and humans should be treated as equals. While I don’t agree with what Michael Vick did, everyone at PETA should be committed or put in jail too.

  • Spewin truth

    It is truly unfortunate that these people care more about their pets than they will ever care about a black man. He was wrong for mistreating animals but damn, they act like they want him to just die.

  • yessir

    “The man lost everything,”

    You say that as if we should take pity on him. He mismanaged 16 million dollars. Most blacks will never see that kind of money. Why are we pitying some who had it and blew it.

    “served his time and now he is trying to do something commendable yet he is still condemed? ”

    He has not finished his sentence yet and under the law you can not profit from your crime. Why should Michael Vick be exempt from the law? the law applies to me, you, and everyone else. why is it that you feel Vick should get special treatment

    “Talk about Mark of the beast and the world not willing to forgive a convict.”

    Why should we forgive convicts? You’re telling me if someone did something to your mom you should be expected to forgive him.

    “He didn’t torture dogs”

    drowning, hanging, and beating to death IS TORTURE. all things he admits to doing

    Peta should leave the man alone. He served his time in prison and repaid his debt. He has every right to earn a living. Peta has no right to speak about his impending book deal. Michael Vick is a famous NFL player. Many athlets have written autobiographies. Michael Vick is doing the same.

    Peta should sit down and be quite. DOGS ARE NOT PEOPLE. The rockafellar laws were written for humans. PETAS behavior is more dispicable than the people that they are persecuting for not being supporters of their madness.

  • Tisha

    Peta has a vendetta against Michael Vick. They should utilize their time wisely and go after those white males who take up deer hunting for sport. Those docile animals are in their natural habitat not bothering anybody and they are killed for entertainment. This is horrific. I am getting the notion that This vendetta has more to do with a once rich black athlete who PETA wants to persecute and be at their mercy. Vick was wrong for killing these vicious pitbulls for sport and served his time for it, but PETA is wrong in their actions.

  • yessir

    “He has every right to earn a living”

    He can not profit from his crime under the law. You can not make money how ever you please.

    “Peta has no right to speak about his impending book deal. ”

    They have every right as citizens of this country .

  • yessir

    “I don’t even think it is a racial issue with PETA.”

    It’s not. they go hard on all regardless of color.

  • Tisha

    @YESSIR

    Michael Vick was an NFL football star. He can write an autobiography about his life like any other athlete who has. His stint in jail can be a small chapter. That is not profiting from a crime. PETA and the rest of the critics should mind their business. He has every right to make money like any other american citizen.

  • yessir

    “. He can write an autobiography about his life like any other athlete who has. ”

    You can not profit from your crime. People who commit a crime and then write a book about it can not collect those profits. If he writes about killing and torturing the dogs in his book he can not collect the profits. That would be against the law.

    “He has every right to make money like any other american citizen.”

    He has no right to profit from his crime neither does any american. You can make money in the way that that the law allows you to.

    “PETA and the rest of the critics should mind their business. ”

    Should the NAACP mind their business about issues of race? Then why should PETA mind their business on issues regarding cruelty to animals.

    @YESSIR

    I don’t what part is it that you don’t understand. He is not writing a book detailing his crimes. He had stardom before the crimes. He can write about his childhood up until now. That is not profiting from a crime. He did not become famous by a killing spree. That does not fall under the Rockafellar Law. do your homework. Your retorts to everyones comments are annoying.

    Everyone does not take too kindly to PETA persecuting a man who has repaid his debt and served time for his crimes

  • yessir

    “He is not writing a book detailing his crimes. ”

    LOL that’s bullshit. the point of the book is to show remorse. how can he do that if he leaves out what he’s showing remorse for.

    “Everyone does not take too kindly to PETA persecuting a man”

    How is he being persecuted? By having to follow the law. then everyone’s being persecuted if that’s the standard.

  • Tisha

    Jennifer hudsons bro in law can’t profit from his crimes. The unabomber can’t profit form his crimes. The son of sam can’t profit from his crimes. Michael Vick can write a book about childhood, and his fame as an NFl player. That is not against the law. He can use that money to pay off his debts until he resigns with another team and starts training. It is ridiculous how people thrive off of seeing someone elses downfall.

  • Your Lust is Decomposing

    @Yessir,

    He finished his sentence hence he is out of JAIL. Your hatred is eating you alive it seems. If a person committed a crime against my mother and finished their time I would not follow them around to kill them. People like YOU will do it for me. Hatred in the heart is destructive just like the tongue of rage. Again we’re speaking in terms of what IF, not it did HAPPEN. He served his time and now he is TRYING to pay for his crimes. A convict doesn’t deserve street justice. the MARK of having a prison record wasn’t created to dehumanize I thought it was created to warn US of what we all are capable of BEING. He/She deserves to be rehabilitated if that is possible. What does further suffering solve? Spitting on him won’t bring any of the dead dogs back. I could go on, but it seems you have enough insults to keep your tormented mind busy for awhile. The conscentious is extremly powerful only sociopaths escape guilt, not really.

  • Tisha

    @ YESSIR

    He is being persecuted because even though Vick has served his time PETA is trying to dictate what he should do upon his release. They have written letters to the NFL saying that he shouldn’t be reinstated. They want him to be analyzed by a shrink. PETA is an activist group who should not be interfering with a mans ability to make a living, after his release. I don’t see PETA interfering with the senseless killings of deers.

  • yessir

    “He finished his sentence hence he is out of JAIL.”

    He is still incarcerated. He has not finished his sentence. He was transported a couple days ago to a different facility but he is still incarcerated serving his sentence.

    “Your hatred is eating you alive it seems.”

    LOL i don’t hate anyone.

  • deesac

    Goodwell and PETA told him to do a public debt to show he’s sorry. And now PETA wants to make a be deal out of that. Black folk please please please wake up this is nothing but modern day racism like I said before white folks making money off of black folks. What they want him to do is make a profit and turn the money over to the PETA after he already gave 21 million to the dogs, they should be ashamed of there selfs but the government let them get away with it. I think black folks should protest but I forgot we don’t stick together.

  • yessir

    “He is being persecuted because even though Vick has served his time PETA is trying to dictate what he should do upon his release.”

    The Law dictates what he can do upon release. and profiting from his crime is not allowed.

    “They have written letters to the NFL saying that he shouldn’t be reinstated. ”

    They have that write as american citizens. Just like other american citizens who wrote Don Imus’ boss.

    “PETA is an activist group who should not be interfering with a mans ability to make a living, ”

    The law dictates how someone can make a living. PETA didn’t invent the law. Second black activists groups do the same exact thing all the time. Black activists interfered with Don Imus’ ability to make a living and he committed no crime.

  • Tisha

    @ YESSIR

    Don Imus was a racist buffoon who was using his public forum to make derrogatory comments about black people. There is no correlation to the two events. As long as Vick still has his atletic skills Vick can still earn a living. People are using him as a scapegoat for their hatred of rich black athletes. Whenever they mess up they are lynched by the media. Those vicious pitbulls are trained to attack. I am not saying they deserved to die. Vick was wrong for killing them. People treat humas with disdain and fondness for a vicious animal.

  • yessir

    “I see, you’re attempting to equate people and animals. ”

    Not at all.

  • yessir

    “Don Imus was a racist buffoon who was using his public forum to make derrogatory comments about black people. ”

    So if you don’t like what someone said you can impede on their ability to make a living But not if you don’t like what’s someone doing. criminal acts in Vicks case
