Mike Vick was set to embark on a book tour this week, promoting his new book “Finally Free”, but some people want him dead. The book tour, that was covering New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Georgia, was cancelled because of death threats.

According to the New York Daily News:

A person with knowledge of the situation, speaking on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the situation, told The Associated Press the signings were scrapped because of threats against Vick and store employees. Vick served 18 months in federal prison for his role in running the dogfighting ring. According to court papers in the cases of Vick and his codefendants, Vick bankrolled the operation and joined others in killing dogs that didn’t perform well.

Byron Williamson, president of Worthy Publishing, tells Phillymag.com that “we cannot knowingly put anyone in harm’s way, and therefore we must announce the cancellation of Mr. Vick’s book-signing appearances.” Williamson says the threats of violence have been reported to the police.

Can a man live?

By no means am I defending Vick’s previous issue with dogs, but the notion of  “kill a human, save an animal”, just doesn’t sit well with me.  I guess people don’t realize death threats are crimes that are punishable as well and don’t always end up being anonymous.

    People who threaten to harm/kill children are bad people. People who threaten lives of workers they don’t even know based on the fact that their shift falls when Vick is going to be there are stupid and bad people (bad combination). These are not people with bad behaviors, but plain old BAD PEOPLE. Where do they do that at?

    I wonder if ( white) people will treat that South African sprinter the way they are treating Mike and Ray Lewis?

      I am. I think they are all pieces of crap. Dog killer is sub human. Man killer is sub human. Woman killer is sub human. And none of them has any “excuse” for the behavior. They are all grown men. They are all successful. They are all wealthy. And they should all be in prison.

  • This is ridiculous, hunt down these pet goons and lock them up in dog cages.
