"Vick is the league’s highest profile felon. He just finished a 19-month federal prison stint and is currently on house arrest in Virginia. His crime was funding and operating a barbaric dog fighting organization. His case attracted massive media attention and well organized protests.
Stallworth is just beginning a month long stay in a Florida jail – he’ll be eligible for release in as few as 24 days – for DUI manslaughter, an incident that didn’t garner widespread coverage until he received such a light sentence." (By Dan Wetzel, Yahoo! Sports)
I just don't get it? I don't understand why we put so very little value on human life.. why we are not all so very outraged at each and every senseless, needless death.. but no we just let it go.. then find ourselves in an uproar over something stupid.. a political affair, a questionable jockey, a crooked basketball player. What is wrong with us?
Oh well I am sure something will come along to distract us again from the value of human life.. I just wish it were not so.. for me, don't get me wrong I like dogs.. I have even owned some that were part of the family but I think human life is more precious.
