More from the Humane Society of the United States... HSUS

The following quote is from a newsletter I received from the Humane Society of the United States... HSUS... on the subject of dogfighting.

"The outrage is unprecedented, and for good reason: Two days after a federal grand jury indicted NFL star quarterback Michael Vick and three cohorts on felony dogfighting charges, more than 150,000 people have called on the NFL to suspend Vick immediately."

Should the fact that someone is in the public eye, in a position of trust and where youngsters look up to them influence the way they are treated in a case like this? What messaage is this sending out to youngsters?

Cruelty is cruelty no matter who perpetrates it... though someone who influences [though maybe, it might be claimed, not by choice] the thoughts of the young generation, [it could be argued] should act in a far more responsible manner than an ordinary member of public who hasn't got the same degree of influence.

For your copy, and to see the full details and what the furore is about, click on the Dogfighting link NOW.
