It is hard to feel sympathetic towards a guy like Michael Vick if you're a dog lover.
But violence against violence is NOT the answer!
Vick recently had to cancel stops on his book tour because he was reportedly receiving death threats from anonymous people who still hate his guts.
But Vick is undeterred and will continue his tour.
Although he is confused why some people he's never met are threatening his life.
"Why would you continue to bash somebody who's trying to help make the world a better place? A lot of people are sick and tired of hearing about my past, because there are so many other problems that are going on in this world that need to have attention drawn to them. People are dying every day, children are being killed, going to jail. Not to say I overlook what I’ve done, but I try to do outreach as a positive. That’s my responsibility. That’s what I’m going to continue to do. That’s what’s important. Those people are not important.”
We agree with him, but to be honest the only reason he's involved in his outreach is because of the horrendous ways he abused dogs.
So, no, we don't blame people for being upset at the guy.
On the other hand - one user wrote on Vick's wall:
"I would go there to slit your throat knowing how you treat animals."
And that is NOT okay!
Writing stuff like that is just plain wrong.
