Let's hope that these high sentences continue. Thank you to Judge Hudson for punishing the true criminals in this case.

It is most appropriate to write letters to encourage the maximum penalty for Vick. You can write to:
Please write letters to:

Important points to remember about Vick-

State Case: "The two state charges — beating or killing or causing dogs to fight other dogs, and engaging in or promoting dogfighting — also are punishable by up to five years in prison each."

Federal Case:
"In an Aug. 27 plea agreement, Vick admitted bankrolling a dogfighting enterprise and providing gambling money, as well as helping to kill six to eight dogs."

Thank you,

Thank you. Thank you, Your Honor, for upholding the law and not discriminating against our breed.

You'll see. The dogs will prove your decision was not foolhardy...they'll prove PETA and the HSUS wrong...for ALL pit bulls out there.

Thanks BR for all of the sleepless nights and sweat and tears that have surely gone into this project. I honestly believe this couldn't have happened without your pit bull-like determination.
