You kill a dog, you go to prison. You kill a Black Man, you go free. Worse even, you kill a million innocent Iraqi men, women and children, you get a Congressional Medal of Honor.
When I heard what they did to Mike, I immediately thought of the case of Martin Lee Anderson in Panama City Florida, where eight former boot camp workers were acquitted in October of manslaughter in the death of the 14-year-old inmate who was videotaped being punched and kicked.
Hunters in this country murder thousands of defenseless animals each year by shooting them through the brain with high powered rifles and that's legal. Why? Because the hunters are the same hypocrites who make the laws. PETA doesn't seem to mind either. I'll even bet that the Judge, who is described as an avid "outdoorsman" (code word for maniac hunter), even throws a few suds back when he goes out with the good ole boys shooting Bambi and her does.....and we all know that alcohol and prescription drugs are the most abused drugs in the world. But their legal too.
They really piled it on Mike. They don't want him ever stepping on a football field ever again. While the COMMISH was ordering the destruction of the evidence against Bill BeliCHEAT and the Pats and giving them a slap on the wrists for destroying the integrity of America's Game, he was also on the phone with the Falcons owner and the judge, making sure Vick would be crucified for financing the fighting of vicious, killer Pitbulls.
I understand though It was really upsetting to many that he was the highest paid player in the NFL. It was also alarming to the NFL that high school and college QBs across this land, all wanted to wear number 7 and "be like Mike". Was he that frightening to the NFL establishment and future of the white traditional pocket passer that they had to get rid of him and **** worse than a violent repeat offender? Perhaps his dark skin played a part in all of this.
Well Mike, you were the baddest mf to ever lace up cleats....but for now, your one man human highlight show has come to a close. Good thing I Tivo'd all of your great games. I turn them on during Sunday afternoons and watch them whenever the matchups are between 2 boring to watch, slow and immobile, lumbering pocket passers.
Hold your head Mike.....We're gonna break you outta there!!
