Seems as if not everyone is happy with the New York Jets acquiring Michael Vick.

The NY Daily News reports:

A petition with over 1,500 signatures is calling to ban Jets quarterback Michael Vick from SUNY Cortland’s campus, where the team will hold its training camp this summer. The petition, hosted on the website Change.org, is addressed to Erik J. Bitterbaum, the school’s president.

Last month it was reported that the Jets will return to Cortland, where they have held training camp every season since 2009 except for the lockout year in 2011, again this summer.

Vick pleaded guilty to a federal dog fighting conspiracy charge in 2007, for which he served 19 months in prison.

What do you think? Is the petition warranted or should people just get over it?

  1. He should get a job at the jail, where he needs to be till he’s deceased. No shame from me when you threaten an animal’s life! I guess whoever gets off on defending a person like this is has issues. Serious one’s. An animal’s life is just as important as a child thru my eyes. Nor black white or mixed. As far as any type of abuse, yes there needs to be multiple laws for humans and animals. But, the country is messed up and the majority are are weirdo’s, so the wrong outweighs the right!

    Who ever begin the petition and the 1,500 people that signed it need to move on and get some business. Black life is not worth the ground we walk on but let something happen to a dog and all hell break loose. Michael Vick has paid more than enough to society; Zimmerman killed an unarmed teenager and is still acting as if he was the victim; Dunn lie his way thru court proceeding and was found not guilty of murdering a teenager over music . They are both liars and should be bury under the jail. LEAVE MICHAEL VICK ALONE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. Hopefully, the 1500 signatures will be ignored and Mr. Vick can go on about his business. And people, I would urge you to not make the mistake of thinking that all of the signatures belong to white people.

  4. George Zimmerman gets off for deliberately killing a young– innocent– Black American teenager (Travon Martin, who I believe was the victim) for walking in the neighbor with skittles and soda… but Michael Vick will never be forgiven for allowing dogs to fight, simply because his skin is darker than Zimmerman’s…*smh

  5. It’s been 7 years and white folk are still “Doggin” (pun intended) Michael Vick out. He served his time and has moved on, but they just don’t want to let it go. White’s who commit crimes are NEVER harassed as much as black people. As Yvonne said, black people seem to be worth less than animals and this is so unacceptable, but yet we live in land that has “liberty and justice for all”…NOT

    In a “Christian” country where we are supposed to allow people to pay their debt to society and then forgive them. It never seems to happen for Black folks

    Not only is it okay to kill us walking down the sidewalk or playing loud music, but when we actually commit a crime, it would appear that we can never finish serving our time, never vote again, never be forgiven. No petitions against George Zimmerman, I see. Our children are worth less than our dogs to these good citizens.

      I was thinking the same thing Yvonne. And on top of it PitBulls that have been terrorizing and killing people left and right. Double standard and a different set of justice principles for our people.
      It’s sickening!!!
