Disgraced NFL quarterback Michael Vick is about to be let out of prison.
Now before your hackles get raised, keep in mind that this decision, based on my understanding of the law, is consistent with what other criminals would receive in similar cases. In other words, Vick is not getting any preferential treatment.
Vick is about to do his time for the dogfighting conspiracy charges that led to his imprisonment, but I still read with more than a bit of disgust the potential opportunities that could await him in the NFL. Vick will soon have completed the penalty he owes the law, but I suspect that the public is going to take more time to forgive him for what he did. And teams such as the San Francisco 49ers and Minnesota Vikings are risking a backlash if they bring Vick to their teams.
