Stupidity Is Also A Crime

NORFOLK, Va. (AP) -- Washington Redskins players Clinton Portis and Chris Samuels defended Michael Vick on Monday by ridiculing the notion that dog fighting is considered a crime.

In an interview with WAVY-TV, Portis said that if the Atlanta Falcons quarterback is charged and convicted of being involved in a dog fighting operation, then authorities would be "putting him behind bars for no reason."

"I don't know if he was fighting dogs or not," Portis said. "But it's his property; it's his dogs. If that's what he wants to do, do it."

Do you numbnuts know how many dog owners there are in this country, and how many of them are football fans? Did you take sculpture as a major in college and sniff a few too many chemicals.

The history of humanity and the dog is an ancient one. We have an emotional tie that binds us together. Throughout the world, people raise dogs for companions, for protection, and as workers who help families survive.

Tossing dogs in a ring to maul one another to death may be amusing to you jackasses, but let's see if it is to the people who buy the tickets that pay your salaries.

The toddler and his pack are not amused.
