Michael Vicks was against district attorneys

Donte Stallworth was able to offer a large amount of money to the family to drop the charges.

Money talks.

The guy he hit crossing the highway was jay-walking a super busy highway here in miami. The old man crossing the street was risking his life regardless.

Well the difference here is that this guy stopped the car and called the police, and admitted to everything, and though he was drunk driving, it seems like a legit accident. Now, michael vick was holding dog fights. He knew he was doing something illegal and still tried to fight it. Ive lost tons of respect for michael vick due to that. Im a MEGA dog lover. Cant help it.

So taking a dogs life is more of a crime than being drunk, running into a person and killing them? I don't see how him jaywalking justifies someone being drunk and hitting him.

I love dogs too, I have 2 of them, but in no way is having illegal dog fighting the same as driving drunk and killing someone. There's no comparison. 30 days or should I say 24 days in jail is pathetic. Hell Keifer Sutherland did that for just a DUI case and he didn't kill anyone and he has plenty of money.

You still gotta consider how the situation was handled.
You got one guy that manned up knowing good and damn well what could happen to him, and you got another who was all "Dog fighting? Me? Nawww."
Plus the jay walking thing would have a LITTLE bit to do with it. Laws are laws, and judges are always gonna look at it that way.

Im gonna try that then. I'm gonna run someone over and kill them and then I'll man up and say my bad. And in my defense I'll say, well you know, the guy was jay walking so he kinda deserved it. I'll take my 30 days and continue on with my life while the other guy lays in a 6' grave.

I never remember Mike lying to the cops about the situation. He never had the chance. He lied to Rodger Goodell. He plead guilty because the cops had persuaded his 2 punk *** cousins to snitch on him and it was no way he could beat two snitches

**Clears throat.** In best Ziggy Impression: "F^ckin' thugs."

Michael Vick is a Piece of trash that lied about what he was doing then flipped and pled guilty because his lawyers knew that the prossecuters would throw him under the jail if he didn't.

I'd be willing to bet that there were a lot of different things happening in this situation.. The guy that he hit was probably an illegal.. blah blah blah. You also notice that it doesn't mention what his blood/alcohol level was, so he may have been "drinking but not legally drunk."

I think he should have got more than 30 days too. This is the way the legal system is though. The family is supposedly happy with the sentence and i am sure the money they settled on. While the money should not be a factor at all since this was a criminal case and the settlement was so there would nit be a civil case i am sure the Judge took that into account and also the family. The prosecuter agreed to this plea deal and i am sure he got the families input on it. this is what happens when they agree to the plea deal it goes to the judge and if the judge wants they can up the jail time but usually they follow what the agreement suggests.

30 days in jail, 2 years house arrest, 8 years probation, he has to report to a probation officer twice a week for the next 10 years,license is suspended for the rest of his life. 1,000 community service hours. He has to do classes educating the public on the dangers of drunk driving. Not to mention the millions he paid the family. I honestly think thats pretty fair. 10 years or reporting to a probation officer is a long time.


Michael vicks knew what he was doing.

Stallworth went out to a lounge drinking and he didn't even leave right away, he stayed there waiting to sober up and left at like 7am-8am when he thought he was sober. im sure 75% of the people on this forum are guilty of that, lots of us go to bars drinking, and once were done with out last drink we wait around for a long time waiting to sober up.

He left the beach traffic fine without hitting someone, he hit someone jay walking on a ******* 5 lane highway which cars hitting 60-70mph at the crack of dawn with poor visibility. Thats something that someone with poor vision could of done.

yeah they both did. But Stallworth punishment is fair.

and Stallworth is far from being financially ruined. 37 million dollar contract and a 4.5 million bonus the day before he killed the guy.

I would take probation over jail anytime. Yeah Im sure it sucks having to report to someone twice a week, but it beats getting your *** tickled in prison. I still don't feel 30 days was long enough. The probation is fine, but he should serve more jail time. I'm sure the guy was an illegal and his family probably could care less that he's dead consider the nice chunk of change they just got. Still doesn't seem right.

He wasn't saying he is finacially ruined, just that he should be. Yeah he has a nice contract, but that could be taken away very easily. Look at Vick, what does he have now? Nothing, I believe he still owes the Falcons money. These football players that get into trouble usually get into trouble more than once, so lets see if this one major event taught him a lesson.

Not thugs, celebrities.

Any regular black person caught jay walking gets a min of 25 to life. I cant imagine DUI manslaughter.

Vick should still be in prison.

Stallworth should have received a healthy penalty for manslaughter. That was someone's family member.

my man u need to watch the way you are throwing thug out like that
so not cool no matter how you feel
he was not selling dope to kids or killing people
he was fighting DOGS
not a thug at all
he was getting illegal entertainment
pretty sure you have downloaded a movie offline
ILLEGAL!!!!

michael vick was a guinea pig
dog fighting is hard to stop being that it is so underground
so lets lock up the highest paid nfl player and let people know we are serious about stopping dog fighting or at least pretend to be
SOME people stopped fighting dogs when vick went to jail bc no one wants to spend a year in jail for something so minor and nor do they have the money to fight the case so they will prob spend more time than that
its how the legal system works
there is no lets stop dog fighting task team
its not worth our tax dollars
we are not going to stop every crime

stallworth case has a million variables
they are really not comparable

I can't really justify calling this guy a thug.. (I know that I did jokingly earlier) I mean, he did stop, admitted guilt and was willing to accept the consequences of his actions. He got lucky, the person that he hit was obviously not that important, he probably paid some illegal family $300k and they didn't file suit.

The jail time doesn't really fit, but I think all that they were "charging" him with was DUI. So, 30 days plus the lifetime loss of his license with no right to appeal for 5 years, plus years of probation and I think it was over 1000 hours of community service is a lot of punishment in itself. I don't consider the house arrest punishment because the guy is loaded, he can have anything he wants in his house or brought to it.

They are by no means thugs... I can show you some thugs so you can see what the real meaning of the word is... i think the punishment for vick was way 2 firm and stallworth is getting off EXTREMELY lucky... oh well... money talks in stallworths case....and i agree with 10507158.. thats why Plaxico is going to get messed up... people want to set examples

Just cause a family lives in miami dosn't mean they are illegal. Thats like me calling you a redneck because your white.
