Let’s think about this logically. You are a person that is upset that Michael Vick engaged in a dog fighting ring, that murdered animals, so the way you express your frustration is by threatening to kill someone’s family. Now you tell me who is worst person? Joe Bartolo told me this afternoon the signing was postponed after he claims death threats were made against him, his wife Jamie — the owners of JJ Cards N Toys — and their family for organizing Vick’s appearance in October at a local Buffalo Wild Wings restaurant. Those making the threats were upset the Bartolos would bring Vick to the area. Vick served 18 months in federal prison for running an illegal dogfighting ring. Bartolo told me thousands of threats were coming in from all the country. He even had to shut down the store’s Facebook page. This is getting ridiculous, you don’t have to like Mike Vick, but threatening to kill anyone’s family because he is signing some autographs, make your a sicker person than Vick ever was.

  • I don't condone the death threats...but at least they were forewarned and were able to cancel the signing for his safety. The dogs however, never knew what hit them. One of the best stories I have heard in relation to what he did is how many of the dogs were rescued and are now in loving and caring homes where they are fed and taken care of. Not used like pawns in a barbaric sport where all human participants should rot in hell when they leave this world. I do agree however that those making the death threats are wrong and hopefully are caught and punished.
