Keep Michael Vick as Honorary Pro Bowl Captain 2020

Michael Vick has served his time of 18 months in federal prison for his dog fighting organizing and has paid his debt to society. He is a changed man and deserves to be honorary Pro Bowl Captain in 2020!

Though regrettable and unfair, many pro ball players who have abused or assaulted women are frequently given second and third chances and the privilege of continuing to play ball without cessation of any kind. Clearly this unjust practice needs to be changed with ensuing consequences and rehabilitation. Coversely, in society we often find instances where the lives of animals are valued  more highly than human beings. While animals definitely should be cared for and treated with respect, the lives of women and human beings should be valued and regarded more highly - without neglecting the good treatment of our beloved animals.

Not only has Vick paid his debt to society via his 18 month federal prison sentence, but he has also had a change of heart dilligently working with the Humane Society, described as the nation’s largest and most effective animal protection organization, to help with his rehabilition. Additionally, Vick
advocated for the passing of H. R. 2492 (112): Animal Fighting Spectator Prohibition Act of 2011.

Michael Vick does not deserve to be punished for the rest of his life for something he has paid his debt to society for.

Let's do the right thing and allow the changed man with a changed heart that Michael Vick has become to be free to shine through and honored for the amazing talent that he has been!

We support you Micheal Vick as Pro Bowl Captain 2020! Congratulations!!!
