There are those who can forgive Michael Vick for his sins.

There are those who are struggling to do so.

And then there are those like FOX News commentator Tucker Carlson.

Yesterday, Carlson released the following statement while guest-hosting Sean Hannity's show:

"I'm a Christian," Carlson said. "I've made mistakes myself. I believe fervently in second chances. But Michael Vick killed dogs and he did in a heartless and cruel way. I think personally he should have been executed for that. He wasn't."

Carlson also had an issue with President Barack Obama, who called the Eagles' front office on Saturday night to praise the Eagles for giving Vick a second chance.

Carlson said it was "beyond the pale" for the President of the United States to be "getting behind someone who murdered dogs."
