People who make mistakes and pay for them with jail time and fines deserve to be treated fairly afterwards. What would this society be like if everyone who made a mistake were not given another chance? We have to be fair across the board, we can't continue to punish some and not others. Granted, the nature of the offense dictates using common sense and discernment. We have to leave the emotion and our personal agenda's out of the matter...We all know that men and women of color are judged, sentenced and fined more harshly than others, it's obvious, it's blatant, it's unfair, it's been happening for centuries and it has to stop and by allowing Vick to participate is a step in the right direction. I applaud the NFL for choosing him in the first place and I encourage them to not cave in to the pressure of these groups to sway their wonderful and humane decision to allow him to participate as a Pro Bowl Captain. He's paid his dues professionally, financially and socially and it serves no one to continue to punish him.
