Animal Lovers Create “Convick” Shirt

Vick

A dog loving couple have created a t-shirt they say advocates prison for Michael Vick for his alleged crime. They plan to sell the t-shirts online and give half of the proceeds to animal charities.

“We are dedicated to spreading the word that cruelty to animals is unacceptable,” says the couple. “People found guilty of this crime should be punished to the fullest extent of the law. We created these shirts for sports fans, Michael Vick opponents and animal lovers opposed to animal cruelty.”

    OK, I know this is going to get me a lot of flack, but you know, there hasn’t been a trial yet. I know there’s a lot of evidence and the crime is atrocious, but we do have something know as “innocent until proven guiltiy… by a court of law.” I’m started to feel like the firing squad has already been ordered for him, and personally, it gives me a queasy feeling. And yes, I do know that with his money and his celebrity, that conviction may be difficult, too. Still…

    I’d be concerned about Vick coming back at the couple for defamation of character or some other such charge. Legally, he’s still innocent.

    i’m wondering why they are only giving half of the profits to animal charities . . .

  4. bengals says:

    good question straybaby…. it doesn’t cost much at all to make the shirts…

    Elderta — I agree with you. After my initial emotional reaction (i.e., hang the guy), I’ve come to realize he has been indited but not convicted and despite the horrible charges, he deserves his day in court. What I am hoping is that this case will focus attention on dog/animal fighting across the nation. But this tee-shirt goes too far. (And, I agree with all. Why aren’t all the profits going to animal welfare groups.)

    Good points from all, I don’t know how expensive printing shirts and shipping etc is, I can see needing to cover costs. Perhaps an anti dog fighting shirt would be better rather than singling out one person? Or pro compassion design, it boggles the mind that we’re faced with ‘marketing’ empathy and compassion to make it appealing. You’d think it should come naturally…

    I believed in innocent until proven guilty…. until I read the indictment. It’s remarkably detailed.

    Were you speaking to me with that s*** a** comment? It was a joke you idiot! ..l.
    I will buy one and wear it proudly. The guy has 20+ Pit Bulls at his house, a ring filled with blood etc etc……… and he didnt know? Give me a break.

    I agree with Anonymous & John. There has also been people on ABC & CNN who said he has been fighting dogs since school and lots of people knew it. They said their are also other football players who have kennels but wouldn’t say who. Imo, I think the fed got him. Imo, I think he will plea bargain. Imo, if he gets away with it (I don’t think he will) it will only be because of his money and his pr guys. Pr people arn’t going to change my mind when I see pictures of that house & read that indictment & know the feds brought the charges.

    Way to go then, Anonymous! Take a serious discussion and turn it into a joke. Why don’t we just turn this entire thing into a joke? Would that make you feel better or be apropos? Oh wait, that was just a joke! Seriously, sometimes it’s best to keep jokes to ourselves.

    Where do I buy one is all I said and you turn around and call me an idiot? Your the joke Anonymous #2 (#2 Literally) and you are the idiot. Your comment was totally inappropriate and uncalled for. It’s obvious you are nothing but a hateful POS who runs around the boards to stir up trouble. Go buy yourself a can of chili and beans and CHILL. Here are a few you may like to try out. http://www.castleberrys.com/news_productrecall.asp
