Everyone charged with Vick has now turned on him, and copped a plea. Meaning, when the government takes their case to court, everyone charged with him, will now be singing the government's tune, and they will be in line to help them convict Michael Vick. I guess someone skipped the ' no snitching' info session with them....too bad for Vick.
It is said that Vick has been offered a plea deal that expires Friday. I believe he should read the tea leaves and take the plea. There's no such thing as rolling the dice when the government has turned all of your ' co-conspirators'. Just doesn't happen that way; not for White folk, and especially not for Black folk.
While I do not know if Michael Vick is guilty of what he's accused of, I will say that he IS guilty of bad judgment. Of not being bright enough to know that keeping 'Michael Vick, Inc.', going for as long as possible and without the taint of scandal, SHOULD be his bottomline.
Mr. Vick seems to be under the illusion that he can be around folk that skate the law, and nobody will convince me that, as long as they say he's known this bunch of folks, he didn't know what they were up to. Maybe his parents never told him what mine told me: "choose your associates very carefully, because if they're into something wrong, guess what, the police aren't going to ask questions to determine which one of you is the guilty party. You will ALL be assumed guilty, and then you'll be scrambling trying to disassociate yourself from MESS."
But, I guess nobody informed Mr. Vick that this is the case in general, and if you are a high-profile African-American, in particular. If he didn't care enough about the Michael Vick brand to stay on top of it, and make sure that it stayed profitable for as long as possible, then why should I care? He brought this upon himself.
