Kind of harsh. Yes, he was insanely cruel, but violence doesn't justify violence.
Tucker Carlson, a Fox News political pundit, didn't hold back recently when discussing Eagles quarterback Michael Vick on his program.
The conversation started out about how President Barack Obama commended Eagles owner Jeffrey Laurie for allowing Vick back on the team after serving 18 months in prision for dogfighting and racketeering. But Tucker didn't seem to agree with either the President or Mr. Laurie that Vick is a rehabilitated man. Along with calling him a "creepy, overpaid football player," Tucker got downright mean, exclaiming to his viewers:
"I'm a Christian, I've made mistakes myself, I believe fervently in second chances. But Michael Vick killed dogs, and he did [it] in a heartless and cruel way. And I think, personally, he should've been executed for that. He wasn't, but the idea that the president of the United States would be getting behind someone who murdered dogs?"
