You know, Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson and the NAACP are right. We need to stop rushing to judge people before all the facts are presented. Everyone deserves a second chance (except Don Imus) and it is our responsibility to forgive Poor Michael Vick.

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) -- A federal judge placed tighter restrictions on Michael Vick on Wednesday after the Atlanta Falcons quarterback tested positive for marijuana.

Because of the result, U.S. District Judge Henry Hudson placed special conditions on Vick's release, including restricting him to his home between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m. with electronic monitoring and ordering him to submit to random drug testing.

Because Vick violated the conditions of his release, Hudson could take that into consideration during sentencing, said Linda Malone, a criminal procedure expert and Marshall-Wythe Foundation professor of law at the College of William and Mary.

"Every judge considers pretty seriously if they feel that the defendant has flaunted the conditions for release," Malone said.

"It's certainly not a smart thing to do."

On Tuesday, Vick also was indicted on state charges of beating or killing or causing dogs to fight other dogs and engaging in or promoting dogfighting. Each felony is punishable by up to five years in prison.

Well, 80% of the time they speak, they've become FOS.

Don Imus...puhleeze, an employer has a right to fire someone. It's one of the few times I agreed with the previous opinionaters. dog wishes he'd hang. He was scum before, and he just keeps digging the hole deeper. Good for him.

Maybe he can tell OJ in the huddle to do a swing route. Doubt OJ would catch the pass. He'll be too busy looking for the ball in Florida on a golf course.
