MICHAEL VICK will go to prison because he was involved with fighting pitbulls. I do not agree with Mr. Vick and he should be punished to the fullest extent of the law. GET REAL PEOPLE. THESE ARE DOGS BUT WHERE IS THE PUBLIC OUTCRY FOR ALL THE DEATHS CAUSED BY DRUNK DRIVERS????? WELL, IT SEEMS OUR CULTURE HAS GOT TO THE POINT THAT PITBULL DOGS ARE MORE IMPORTANT THAN PEOPLE'S LIVES............
BIG, BIG, BIG QUESTIONS?????
True, the pitbull dogs were treated wrong, even tortured or killed. BUT, WHAT ABOUT THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE WHO DIED BECAUSE OF A DRUNK DRIVERS IN 2006??? Murder by drunk drivers is on the rise. Oh, you say, I am being to harsh. Am I? Let it happen to your family or a close friend, and you will be changed on how you classify DRUNK DRIVERS.

WHAT ABOUT THE TRAGIC DEATHS AND WHAT THE DRUNK DRIVER HAS DONE TO DESTROY FAMILIES, LEAVE PEOPLE COMPLETELY BROKEN, CRIPPLED AND RUINED FOR LIFE. LET ALONE THE COSTS INVOLVED???
But geee, we kill over 40,000 people a year on our highways and the dog fighting case with MR. VICK gets the most coveage and loudest screams from petlovers and others who read about death on the highways, but we have just accepted this as a part of our lives.
When was the last time someone got up or a group (other than MADD) stood up and cried out about this senless killings from drunk drivers. I am sure there are groups that have stood up and wanted something done about the plaque of drunk driving, but do you see them protesting at the liquor stores or at your favorite mini-store that sells wine and beer?? Not hardley.
LABOR DAY will be upon us in less than 2 weeks. How many innocent people, (babies, young people, parents and grandparents will die because of a serious car accident that involves a drunk driver.
If you are partying over LABOR DAY, DO NOT LET SOMEONE THAT HAS DRANK TOO MUCH, DRIVE A VEHICLE. STOP THEM, TAKE EM HOME OR GET A CAB.
IF A PERSON IS ALLOWED TO DRUNK DRIVE AND PEOPLE KNOW THEY ARE DRUNK AND LET THEM DRIVE, PLEASE STOP THEM FROM GETTING BEHIND THE WHEEL. IF THE DRUNK PERSON DRIVES, AND YOU KNOW THEY ARE DRUNK AND HAVE AN ACCIDENT,
THE PERSON(S) WHO LET THAT PERSON DRIVE SHOULD BE ARRESTED AND CHARGED AS AN ACCESSORY. THINK ABOUT THIS. STOP A DRUNK FROM DRIVING AND YOU MAY SAVE SOMEONE'S LIFE.
I was in a serious car wreck my senior year in high school. The driver of a flat bed truck was weaving all over the road and jacked knife the trailer in a large curve. He had been drinking. The family driving in the other lane that hit the end of the trailer did not know the truck driver had been drinking and a father and infant died because a guy wanted a drink and then drove. I was creamed in our car when the other car hit us head on and we were sitting still. I had to suffer through a long summer with lost teeth, broken bones and plenty of pain, but my suffering was nothing compared to the mother and 3 other children that lost a sibbling, father/husband that day. To top off the anquish and hurt, the sister OF THE killed father was in the emegency room at the hospital when they brought him and the baby to the emergency room. The sister was an emergency room nurse on duty that day. Terrible ordeal to endure. Lord, how would you know how that feels until you have walked in their shoes.
