What is this, every body deserves a second chance, except Mike Vick…
Philadelphia Eagles Quarterback Michael Vick recently had a book signing scheduled for this comming Saturday to promote his new book “Michael Vick: Finally Free” at an Atlanta Barnes and Noble, Unfortunately the event had to be cancelled following multiple threats of violence to Vick, his family, store employees and store property. There were actually a total of three locations scheduled New Jersey and Exton, Pa., they both have been were cancelled as well. An official statement was released in regards to the cancellations…
“While we stand by Michael Vick’s right to free speech and the retailers’ right to free commerce, we cannot knowingly put anyone in harm’s way, and therefore we must announce the cancellation of Mr. Vick’s book-signing appearances,” said Byron Williamson, president of Worthy Publishing. “We’ve been assured these threats of violence, which have been reported to the police, are being taken very seriously by local authorities.”
According to Birds 24/7: “…There has been a recent uptick in what a source close to Vick calls “credible threats of violence” directed toward the Eagles quarterback and his family…The bookstore’s Facebook page has been flooded with comments protesting the appearances. The same is true for Vick’s fan page. In many instances, it goes well beyond protesting. Vick and his family have been threatened on a number of occasions.
Some recent examples of the threats: “I would go there to slit your throat knowing how you treat animals.” “hope your kids don’t fall in a pool with a battery.” “I would snap your neck if I met you, your [sic] a piece of trash.” Click here to read full story from>>> Birds 24/7.
Those people seem like their issues are a little bit deeper than just Mike Vick, he’s just the target. We hope he is able to promote his book soon seems like it may be interesting…
“I want to be remembered as a guy who never gave up, whether with my family, out on the football field, in a prison cell, or playing one-on-one basketball with somebody in the neighborhood. Standing firm in God always, pushing through, even in my darkest moments.”
We’ll buy the book and we have been pit bull owners for over 20 years everybody deserves a second chance .
