Michael Vick valiantly volunteered to begin serving his manufactured prison sentence earlier than required, his sentencing isn't officially until December 10th.
We've read optimistic reports of Vick possibly being released from this objectionable holding in less than a year. Maybe even being out and back in pads dazzling his youthful fans before the end of next season.
However, news this morning might extinguish the optimism, and certainly put a damper on those hoping to see Vick's rights - though violated - be restored.
Two of Vick's 'co-defendants' (read: pawns of the prosecution) received 18 and 21 month sentences.
This does not bode well for Vick, as these men received these sentences after working hand in hand with the government to effectively mangle Vick's life and destroy his reputation.
Certainly, if the courts hand nearly two year sentences to the men that made Vick's incarceration possible; Vick is in for a longer stay in the white man's guest cottage than anticipated.
And, let this be a lesson to future willing government conspirators. Certainly these men were promised drive through service. But, as our Native American brethren can attest to, the albino government serpent speaks with a forked tongue.
