Today during lunch out with my mother and SIL we saw on TV the story of Michael Vick getting back on a pro-football team. For those that may not know, he was convicted of numerous charges associated with dog fighting. He was convicted and served his time in prison. So anyway, my SIL was saying he should not be able to play football anymore, I asked why, she said he was a felon.
Now let me start off with I am a police wife and was a daughter of a police officer, so I am not soft on crime, just the opposite to be exact, but this man served his time...the old adage, "you do the crime, you do the time", and he did.
So what are your thoughts? I guess I would feel differently if it was a different type of job...laywer, doctor, and if they were convicted of something dealing with their profession. I suppose I had not taken into account that he is a 'idol' to some kids, and it may give them...oh I don't know....I don't think football players should be idols to begin with but that is another debate. So what are your thoughts about him returning to his 'job'?
