Letters: Vick case vs. justice down through our history

Posted: September 04, 2009

MICHAEL VICK served over a year and a half in prison for fighting and killing dogs. America's forefathers didn't serve one day for killing Native Americans, nor did any of the racist hate-mongers in the Southern states for 400-plus years of slavery.

Vick has fulfilled what the commonwealth of Virginia has deemed a reasonable punishment, so everyone else should just back off.

I would bet that if your son was arrested and jailed for rape and murder and released from prison, you would want him to get a second chance. Well, charity starts within, and Vick deserves a chance to feed his family just as would your son.

Michael J. Pope Sr., Philadelphia
