  1. What if...

    Vick will not see the field this year. The advisors around him, worried that they are going to lose their cash cow, will advise Vick he needs to start rehabilitating his image right now. That means he will stike a deal with the Feds quickly. He will see some prison time, but not much, in exchange for his cooperation. He will go on probation, and a condition of which will be comunity service, which he will fulfill by doing public service announcements about cruelty to animals, but which will be as much about painting him as contrite. He will have a public religious epiphany. Possibly this will come with a name change to signify his rebirth and to get away from the damaged brand that is the name "Micheal Vick". All of this will take him through next year. Sometime next year he will start working out as a W.R. Why? No team will trust him for the face of their franchise, but some team will still covet his athletic gifts. He will float trial ballons on this possibility, but things will still be too raw for him to come back. He may, demonstrate his skills in Canada as much to allow the final public vitriol to be spent as to truly showcase his skills. In 2009 he will make an NFL roster under his new name as a W.R./K.R. He will do well at that. America loves a redemption story. We also love humbling our heros and watching them dance. Mike Vick is going to learn to dance.
  2. Vick Indicted

    If only this were predictable from the information known weeks ago. Had we only been able to extrapolate the future from the known facts we might have seen this coming. Too bad no one had the foresight to break down that information, analysis it as a criminal case, and predict this. Of course who could have done such a thing? Had it been done I am certain no one would have continued to blindly sniff Vick jock or to have taken refuge, insultingly, in cliche`s about presumption of innocence or the like.

    Please cite one instance of a team not honoring a contract. It's never happened. When a team signs a player they pay a bonus. They also negotiate for yearly salaries for a specific number of years should they still believe the player to be worth those salaries. The bonus secures for the team the unilateral right to have the players services should the team so desire. When a team cuts a player they have prepaid the player for the right to do so. The palyer has no contractual right to continue with the team. They only have the right to the agreed upon salary if the team wishes their services at that price. If any NFL team ever failed to live up to the contract don't you think you would have seem law suits by cut players? It never happens because the player has no rights and the teams have already honored the contract upon the payment of the signing bonus.

    I have always been in the Honor Your Contract camp, always. I don't believe in the concept of outplaying ones contract. That said K.C. is endangering this guys health and future at the rate they have been running him into the ground. They have crossed into new territory with him. Under these relatively unprecedented circumstances were I he, I would not risk my future giving the production of nearly two players for the pay of one backup.
  5. Bears' Harris wants Donovan as Chi-town starter

    You are forgetting perhaps the scintillating play of Bobby Douglas? What about Avellini, the poor man's Bob Griese?

    If they work for goats as well I may need to make up with BS1 so I can get one of those at cost.
  8. Vick is all done

    Some implication that he might be in his use of the phrase "fellow prosecutor". Yet the phrase was used ambiguously enough in context that he may have only been referring to me and to Poindexter, and not himself.
  9. Vick is all done

    career prosecutor Also generally used to refer to one with 20+ years experience in a prosecutor's office. When Big Score tries to put stink on the term in an attempt to get my goat (for what one might wonder) it only pleases me more.
  10. Vick is all done

    I note that Bronco Billy, who has no legal training as far as I know, was able to correctly use the term burglary to describe what happened to Vick's house, so many say robbery instead. I note that Big Score 1 is unaware of the distinction between libel and slander. I counterpose the two for my own amusement.
  11. Vick is all done

    Poindexter is not my peer. If anything my comments were libleous, not slanderous. 9Any first year law student or any peson with a dictionary would get this distinction correct.) I do not insist on suggesting racial animus by Poindexter. I note that he raised the topic unprodded as to the feds, and I find that beyond irresponsible. He gave the eventual defense, should it come to that, ammunition, and he did so out of picque and hubris. I have taught law. Actually and more to the point criminal procedure. The professor's comments were strange indeed. You are missing the import of those comments. The unmistakable implication of those comments are that the feds have reason to believe Poindexter is incompetent or dirty. If the feds were merely seeking glory they could have investigated cooperatively and charged federal violations seperately. You are clearly not even worth bantering with as your level of acumen is on a par with Vick's cousin.
  12. Shaun Rogers accused of sexual assault

    Can she describe the weapon? Would she recognize it if she saw it again? God I hope there is a lineup in our future. We have not had a good dick lineup since the days of Michael Jackson giving the Thriller to young boys.
  13. Vick is all done

    Checked with our people who handle animal matters. Dr. Merck was consulted by our office in regards to a string of cat mutalations a few years back, and was also consulted in regard to defense of an ordinance seeking to ban pit bulls.
  14. Vick is all done

    A good, but ultimately incredibly untimely move by Poindexter. This is akin to closing the barn door after the horses have already escaped. One wonders what this top forensic expert will examine since the crime scene was not secured, since evidence was lost to theft. Yes she may be able to give him valuable insight from the items they did secure during the initial siezure. Unfortunately those items may get tossed in an exclusionary hearing, which hearing will then, of course, seek to limit her testimony as being fruit of that oh so poisonous tree. While she is there the feds may want to secure her services to analysis the evidence they secured under their warrant. I think it possible she may have insight if her credentials are as presented, and I have no reason to believe otherwise.

    So Poindexter was in the process of executing a correctly worded warrant, at least according to his statements. I'm more than a little shocked at the extremely lengthy amount of time this went on. It does not take days or weeks to write a properly worded warrant. One also does not allow evanescent evidence to be under the control of the suspect while one seeks such a warrant. Yes one crosses ones "t's" and dots ones "i's", but not to the extent of allowing evidence to disappear. One relies on one's best efforts, the imprimatuer of the court who authorizes the warrant, and the officers good faith in executing the same to both secure the evidence and to give one a solid legal argument if an exclusionary hearing arises. As to what was siezed under the first warrant I have concerns. The first warrant did not authorize the police to look for evidence of dog fighting. When they saw animals in distress they were not required to ignore that. They were free to secure those animals, but then their obligation was to go no further in their search in that regard. They could complete their search for matters related to drug dealing or manufacturing, but then they needed to leave, secure the premises, and seek another warrant related to their then existing probable cause to believe that a separate illegal activity was taking place on the property. I have real concerns that the tread mills, carpets, and other items will get excluded. As for arguing the semantics of calling an item a rape stand verses a breeding stand I take this as what it is, an off point argument meant to distract. A rose by any other name springs to mind. So does you say potato I say you're a dumb ass. As to what their forensic people were prepared to look for I know our crime lab people go out with fully equiped trucks. I also know that they are instructed to limit themselves to the scope of the warrant before going in, though obviously they take caution to not contaminate other potential evidence. In a drug raid absent allegations that violent crime took place this means that collecting and testing for blood would exceed the scope of the initial warrant. My guys would have, in accord with their training, secured the premises and sought a new warrant before proceeding. As for my bona fides as a prosecutor you have no real idea. Your analysis of this matter thus far does, however, give me an idea as to your bona fides. Lastly when it conmes to throwing a fellow prosecutor under the bus I agree I may have knocked Poindexter there in my rush to save the prosecutors he threw under the bus by suggesting racial animus in their pursuit of the truth. I have no trouble damaging the rep of someone who struck the first such blow. Poindexter's behavior in this matter has been nothing short of outrageous and I will not stand in solidarity with him. If you choose to do so that is your choice.
