Tell the NFL that Vick needs psychological testing

In Animal News on February 6, 2009 at 5:38 pm

In light of Michael Vick’s imminent release from prison, and his consequent readmittance into the NFL and life in the spotlight, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) is asking animal lovers to urge the NFL to require Vick to undergo psychological testing for anti-social personality disorder (ASPD), or psychopathy. ASPD is characterized by a charismatic personality combined with behavior that includes lying, manipulation, taking pleasure in others’ suffering, and aggression, all of which Vick has displayed. The danger presented by people with ASPD is that they appear incapable of true remorse and therefore are dangerously susceptible to repeating anti-social behavior displayed in the past. By clicking here, you can send an automatic letter directly to the NFL requesting that Vick be administered the test for ASPD before taking the field.
