    Michael Vick has legally payed his debt to society for electrocuting, torturing and drowning dogs. He is know free to walk the streets. The next step for him is to find the best job he can. Vick chose to leave Virginia Tech University after his red shirt sophomore year and not pursue a college degree, so his options are limited. Given his immense physical gifts his best opportunity to become a contributing member to society is to play in the NFL.

    Now its time to let this beautiful thing called capitalism do its work. If Michael Vick's employment field (the NFL) wants him back and an employer (NFL team) wants to pay him, then its only fair that he is allowed to play. The team that pays him is assuming the biggest risk. Fans could decide to boycott the team, advertisers could pull millions of dollars away and protesters could stop any future fans from supporting that NFL franchise.

    Lets not forget every citizen in this country has the right to pursue life, liberty and happiness. That is all Michael Vick is doing and if some owner wants to fund that pursuit then they will bear the consequences.
