Tucker Carlson on Michael Vick: Execute Him!

by at . Comments

Many football fans, including President Barack Obama, are happy about Michael Vick getting a second chance from the Philadelphia Eagles.

Fox News' Tucker Carlson is not one of those people.

We know it's a 24-hour news world, and Fox anchors are mandated to embrace the opposite view of anything Obama says, but listen to this:

“I’m a Christian, I’ve made mistakes myself, I believe fervently in second chances,” Carlson said. “But Michael Vick killed dogs, and he did in a cruel, heartless way. Personally, I think he should’ve been executed for that."

"He wasn't, but the idea that the President of the United States is getting behind someone who murdered dogs? Kind of beyond the pale."

So ... the Christian thing to do is execute Michael Vick?

What if he can truly be rehabilitated and people can learn from his example? Michael Vick loves animals now. What more do you want?

For its part, the White House reiterated that Obama condemns his crimes (running a dogfighting ring) but believes convicts should get a chance to contribute to society when they are released from prison (Vick served nearly two years).

Tell us, was Michael Vick's sentence fair?

Honestly, the law is if you commit that crime, your punishment is 2 years in prison. He served his time in prison, which was rough and not pleasant. The crimes he committed were awful, but once you've served your prison sentence you've paid your debt to society. I think Vick's come out of his prison sentence a humbled man. If you look at his interviews and his conduct on and off the field, he's behaving like a respectable professional. Furthermore, everything he does now is scrutinized, he can't possibly get involved in dog fighting again because he's being watched. For every dollar he makes, some of that is going to the humane society and other animal charities. The guy now has to fund raise for these charities, and that's a good thing because they're getting more funding. Look at it this way, he can't ever do it again, and for as long as he lives some of his money will go towards animal welfare... It's better for animal rights advocates if he gets to work.

Isnt' the deal with Catholics that you can kill someone but then they come back to life? So what's the big deal? Execute Vick and then bring him back to life for a big dinner or something. If god wants him dead, he'll stay dead. Worked in Salem and America NEEDS to get back to our traditional values!
