According to experts, the three indicators of a psychopathic child are bedwetting, cruelty to animals and firestarting.
According to the father of Philadelphia Eagles star quarterback, Michael Vick, his son showed a passion for abusing animals at an early age.
Now that Vick has led the Eagles to an impressive 10-4 record, everyone — including the president of the United States — has forgotten about the victims of this psychopath.
The Internet is buzzing about a phone call that Obama placed to Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie praising him for giving the ex-convict a second chance.
Did Obama also place a phone call to the homes of those caring individuals who took in 47 of Vick’s surviving victims, giving them a second chance?
I’m not surprised that Obama — a narcissist — is quick to jump on the Vick bandwagon. Everyone loves a winner — even if that winner is a sociopath who took pleasure in electrocuting, hanging and drowning dogs who didn’t live up to his expectations.
If you care about animals like I do, please read the LA Times’ touching story about Mel, one of Vick’s surviving victims who still suffers from the abuse he endured at the hands of Michael Vick.
Mel (pictured above left) is one of the unfortunate dogs who didn’t measure up to Vick’s brutal standards. Vick beat Mel daily to toughen him up. But Mel failed to display that killer instinct in the ring. As a result, he was mauled nearly to death by the other dogs.
Instead of nursing the injured Mel back to health, Vick threw the terrified animal back into the ring with ferocious dogs to be used as bait — a sort of sparring partner for the tougher dogs. Mel was sometimes even muzzled so he wouldn’t fight back.
While Michael Vick was screaming toward the sky, a black pit bull named Mel was standing quietly by a door.
On this night, like many other nights, Mel was waiting for his owners to take him outside, but he couldn’t alert them with a bark. He doesn’t bark. He won’t bark. The bark has been beaten out of him.
While Michael Vick was running for glory, Mel was cowering toward a wall.
Every time the 4-year-old dog meets a stranger, he goes into convulsions. He staggers back into a wall for protection. He lowers his face and tries to hide. New faces are not new friends, but old terrors.
While Michael Vick was officially outracing his past Monday night, one of the dogs he abused cannot.
“Some people wonder, are we ever going to let Michael Vick get beyond all this?” said Richard Hunter, who owns Mel. “I tell them, let’s let Mel decide that. When he stops shaking, maybe then we can talk.”
