Mike Vick Sentenced to 23 Months for Dogfighting

What a bunch of bullshit! First, I want to preface everything by saying I'm a dog lover. Pac has been my homie ever since he came into our life. If anything happened to him, I don't know what I would do. He's the perfect dog. He's loyal, obedient, playful, too smart for his own good, charismatic and good looking. He's treated like he's our child. We feed him only organic dog food and snacks and give him filtered water to drink (btw....just purchased this and I luuuuv it (click here - Can I get some advertisement sponsorship?....went through 5 gal. between me, babe and pac in a week!). And most of all, we give him love. Having said that, I think it's a dirty game and it sickens me that Mike Vick is serving a mandatory 19.5 months in slavery for dogfighting. I'll be the first to say I'm not a fan of pit bulls although physically I think they are stunning (especially the "blue" ones). This is what the owners say about their breed,
"THE GOLDEN RULE OF PIT BULL OWNERSHIP - NEVER TRUST YOUR PIT BULL NOT TO FIGHT! This breed is descended from pit dogs one way or another, and, given the right circumstances, most Pit Bulls will fight and against any other breed. The breeding of dogs with bad temperaments is one of the largest problems the breed faces today and fuels the fire of breed specific legislation. A dog that was previously non-dog aggressive may "turn-on" and suddenly doesn't like other dogs of the same sex, or, for that matter, any dogs at all, even house mates they have been raised with. Adult Pit Bulls should NEVER be left alone with other dogs and require proper supervision. Pit Bulls may exhibit intense "prey drive", leading them to "stalk" small animals such as cats, rats, chickens, livestock, or other pets."
There is no coincidence that dog fighters choose pit bulls to fight. These same dogs have dominated the news from mauling human beings. They've killed numerous children (click here). They are outlawed in many cities (click here). My point is, Vick let these dogs do what they do naturally. Yea, killing a dog because it's not a good fighter is absolutely wrong and some legal consequence is justified (even though hunters can kill deer for the "sport" of it). Sending Mike for 2 years to federal prison is BULLSHIT! I don't even want to start on PETA (click here). This hugely contributing member of society is caged when Mary Winkler is free. For those that don't know, this mother murdered her well loved Church Pastor husband in cold blood, shooting him in the back with a shot gun while he was sleeping because he was critical of her (keep in mind she was convicted of money scams). She said,
"He criticized her hair and wanted her to watch porn and have "unnatural" sex afterwards, and she just wanted him not to be mean. She didn't pull the trigger but something suddenly went off - boom - and he was dead"
... and fled with their children, pleaded not guilty and served a whopping 67 days and was released? Something is seriously wrong with our judicial system. Vick is in prison while Dubya is walking around free facing no cases for his illegal war which has resulted in thousands of people dead??? Come on now. The crime simply does not justify the punishment.

UPDATE: Just read this sickening news today; Snitch Co-Defendent who faced the SAME
charges as Vick gets 2 months.....yes 2 months (click here).
"He was the most significant source of information in this case," Gill (Prosecutor) told U.S. District Judge Henry Hudson. "He did not hesitate in any way." Gill said it would have taken the government significantly longer to build a case against Vick and his three co-defendants had it not been for Taylor."
