Dear Vickey (that’s our little joke),
Now I know some people would like to believe your public statement was just done in hopes of getting a lighter sentence. They’re saying things like ‘showing no remorse would probably result in longer jail time’ or ‘he did that in hopes that they’ll let him play football when he gets out of prison’ or even ‘sure, he’s only remorseful that he got caught.’
Don’t worry, I don’t believe them. I mean, can’t a man simply say he’s sorry and that be enough for everyone?
I mean, I remember one time when I was seven that I stole a pack of gum from the store. It was super-tasty and my palate thanked me many times for the sugary treat. I enjoyed it greatly. But then my Mom found out and, after that (or after the fact if you please), I was filled with remorse… just like you.
And as I said, I was seven. So, when you say you have some growing up to do, I know where you are coming from.
But I said I was sorry and why wasn’t that enough? Okay, yeah, the facts remain that I stole, which is illegal, and I couldn’t replace the damage I’d done because the item was ruined, but still… did I really have to go back into the store, apologize and pay for the gum I had stolen? I already said I was sorry!
And I can’t believe people don’t believe you when you said you did not bet on the dogfights and only funded the operation and killed dogs. Many celebrities give money without expecting anything return. Given, most donate to things like charity, but nonetheless. Why can’t they accept that it wasn’t an investment but yet, the simple gift of monies that charitable men do… just this time it was for the training and brutal killings of dogs.
So, when they send you to jail, know there are people who care. And don’t you worry about getting out early for good behavior… nothing says that like an apology.
After the fact…
After getting caught in order to stop the behavior…
After pleading guilty once everyone you worked pled guilty and agreed to testify against you for reduced sentences…
PS. Do they really give out soap on a rope for the showers now? What’s that about!?
