Tucker Carlson: Michael Vick ‘should have been executed’ for dogfighting

Cable news host Tucker Carlson on Tuesday took issue with President Obama‘s support of quarterback Michael Vick‘s stunning turnaround, saying that he thought Vick “should have been executed” for his crimes.

Carlson, who is guest-hosting the Fox News program “Hannity” this week, made the remark during a discussion about Obama’s call to Eagles‘ owner Jeffrey Lurie in which the President said he was happy the team gave the troubled quarterback a second chance after he was convicted of running a dog fighting ring.

“I’m a Christian, I’ve made mistakes myself, I believe fervently in second chances, but Michael Vick killed dogs, and he did [it] in a heartless and cruel way,” Carlson said. “And I think personally he should have been executed for that. He wasn’t.”

“But the idea that the President of the United States would be getting behind someone who murdered dogs [is] kind of beyond the pale,” he said.

During Obama’s call, which was first reported by Sports Illustrated‘s Peter King and confirmed by the White House, Obama condemned Vick’s crimes but praised the Eagles for showing faith in the idea of giving someone a second chance.
