Why are the Feds on Vick’s trail?
Federal authorities seem to be zoning in on Michael Vick’s involvement in a dogfighting ring, and I’m sure there’s ample legal grounds for staying after the Falcons quarterback.But should the feds be on this case?Dogfighting is an abominable practice that rightfully is outlawed. But should our federal agents be policing dogfighting? Isn’t this a state issue?Some state attorneys question why the feds are so determined to bring down Vick. Is it his celebrity? His attitude? His race?Seems like federal authorities could be tackling more important issues. Corporate fraud. Civil rights violations. Organized crime. Good old-fashioned lawbreaking like kidnapping, bank robbery and murder.I’m no fan of dogfighting and I’m no fan of Vick. But if he claims harassment, I’m not so sure he’s off base.Vick has imperiled his status with the Falcons and maybe his entire NFL career. By all accounts, he’s a knucklehead. But that doesn’t mean the federal authorities should be on his trail.
