Hide Your Pets: Michael Vick Let Out of Prison

by at . Comments

Former NFL star and convicted dog-fighter Michael Vick is officially out of federal prison after 19 months. He was released several months early and will now take up a job doing construction work until his sentence is completed this summer.

In his work-release program, Vick will work at WM Jordan Construction near his home in Virginia. He will remain under federal surveillance while earning $10 an hour.

A tad under the $10 million a year he said his earning potential would be.

He is not allowed to work on any government sites because he's a felon.

Vick, who turns 29 next month, his fiancée, Kijafa Frink (see pics below), and several members of a security team left for a 19-hour drive home to Virginia.

A newly-freed Michael Vick is all smiles.

In an effort to construct a new image as well as houses, the disgraced star met in person (while in prison) with Humane Society President Wayne Pacelle to discuss his working on a program aimed at eradicating dogfighting among urban teenagers.

“He said this experience has been a trauma and he’s changed forever. He said he wants to show the American public that he is committed to helping combat this problem. He asked for an opportunity to help," Pacelle wrote on the Humane Society’s website.

Pacelle called dogfighting a “culturally complex problem” prevalent among black urban teens and said Michael Vick could be valuable in combating the problem.

“It’s not about Michael Vick and providing endless punitive treatment. It’s about stopping other young people from going down the road Vick took,” he said.

Michael Vick's fiancee, Kijafa Frink (right), stood by him throughout his year and a half in federal prison and was there to greet him upon his release this week.

I say Michael Vick has NOT paid his debt to society!!! 2 years is not punishment enough for the agonies that he inflicted on many animals whilst participating in his barbaric pastime (which he enjoyed very much and earned a lot of money from!) Michael Vick is SUBHUMAN SCUM and I am praying for a FOOTBALL ACCIDENT - a nice broken back will do for now! As for the commenters here who refer to us as "animal wacko's", LOL don't even go there bitches! it reveals a lot more about you than us! You are uncivilised, unevolved, ignorant humans who are devoid of pity for other people too, not just animals. As for paedophilia, the first child rescue organisation over here in UK was founded by an ANIMAL RESCUER! NSPCC was founded by the very man who also founded the RSPCA so shut the fuck up! DAMN MICHAEL VICK TO HELL!!!! STUFF THE RACE CARD UP YOUR ARSE, NOT ALL BLACK MEN ARE VIOLENT SAVAGES LIKE YOU!

I'm white and think that Michael Vick NEVER should have gone to jail. The punishment was way too severe and he lost millions. Thank God he gets to go back into the NFL. They were even trying to rehabilitate these pitbulls and made him do community service. Pitbulls are a worthless breed and you can't rehabilitate them. Animal wackos have made this a bigger crime that anything a pediophile could do. Every white person I've talked to thinks the whole thing was stupid too. We got "white" elitists scamming billions off the American public and they get away with it. I am really happy for you, Michael!
