Michael Vick is confronted by a man who adopted one of his dogs

There's a you tube video of a man in Dallas who adopted one of the Vick dogs - Mel - and he went to a ceremony where Michael Vick was presented with a key to the city - and he confronted Vick - asking if he wanted to see a photo of his dog Mel and maybe talk about how Mel was doing - and it's a must see video.

Everyone is talking about how unrepentant Vick seems - but to me, Vick looks almost scared - it's weird - like he's being pushed away by his people - I really hate to say it, but at the end of the video for one split second I almost feel bad for Vick - for one split second - and then I am back to normal.

Because of course - nothing happened - and nothing has happened since.

Except that the actual Mayor of Dallas has asked to have the key of Dallas returned back to him - because it was the acting Mayor who gave the key to Vick - and he wasn't actually authorized to do it. SNAP!! haha!

The article saying that is below the video.

Has Dallas Mayor Insulted Michael Vick?

This weekend, a top Dallas official gave the Philadelphia Eagles' Michael Vick the key to his city. On Monday, the city's mayor demanded the key back from Vick.

The center of the controversy involves Dallas Mayor Pro Tem Dwaine Caraway, who awarded Vick the city's highest honor at a dinner on Saturday night. Caraway is effectively the vice mayor of the city that hosted the Super Bowl.

On Monday, Dallas Mayor Tom Leppert said Caraway didn't have the power to honor Vick.

"The action taken was not sanctioned by my office and was not an official ceremonial honor on behalf of the City of Dallas," he said in a statement. "Official Keys to the City are presented by the Mayor, or an elected official designated by the Mayor, and reserved, on a limited basis, for an elected official of international status. Clearly, this was not the case in this situation and done without my knowledge or approval."

A local radio reporter, who adopted one of Vick's dogs, filmed the event and posted the video on You Tube.

Leppert said he wants to make sure an incident like that doesn't happen again.

"Given these circumstances I have requested the City Manager propose guidelines to prevent this situation in the future."

But Caraway then issued his own statement, saying Vick deserved the honor and he had the power to award the key.

"Since making some bad choices, Michael Vick has devoted time to speaking to children about staying in school, staying away from drugs, making positive choices about picking friends, and the importance of education. That was the focus of the event," he said.
Caraway also said he is a pet owner.
