Why Sign Vick?

To The Editor:

While Michael Vick is a talented football player, he has been cruel to animals. There was no reason at all for him to be involved in illegal activities, involving dog fighting, which resulted in the death and injury of these innocent animals. It is an absolute abomination that this man has now been signed by the Jets for the upcoming football season. Fans should boycott the games and also not watch them on television. How can Mr. Vick live with himself, after what he did to those poor animals? What kind of a person is he? Certainly not one with compassion and care for animals!
