Robin brought up Michael Vick again and told Charlie that Vick was in that same kind of situation and he still went back and did what he did to dogs even though he had gotten out of that neighborhood. Charlie said that the whole dog fighting thing is bigger than Michael Vick. He said that it’s a big industry and it’s not just Vick who was doing it. He said if people are really against Vick and the dog fighting then they should be actively involved in trying to stop dog fighting.
