    and conducted inhumane treatment of animals and should be punished for it.

    However, I think what is more to the point of our morality is whether we will ever see the people responsible for all of our recent military atrocities punished in a like manner.

    It is well and good to punish a couple of enlisted men for Abu Ghraib for example, but what of the officers responsible for it?
    What of the politicos who structured Guantanamo?
    What of the daily abuses of human rights that we are responsible for?

    Vick deserves punishment, but our morality is in even worse shape than his case indicates.

      see those responsible for military atrocities being tried unless forced and even then it would be softened. I would like to find out the truth about Tillman. Someone knows the awful truth but we don't.
