“I’m shocked, shocked to find that there is dog fighting going on here!”

From the Richmond Times-Dispatch: Vick indicted in dogfighting case:

NFL quarterback Michael Vick and three others were indicted this afternoon by a federal grand jury in Richmond on charges of interstate conspiracy to sponsor a dogfighting venture, authorities said.

The others named in the indictment are Purnell A. Peace, Quanis L. Phillips and Tony Taylor.

The indictment comes as part of a federal investigation into alleged dogfighting activities at a property owned by Vick in Surry County.

The investigation began more than two months ago when a cousin of Vick’s was arrested on a drug charge in Hampton. The cousin gave as his address a house owned by Vick in rural Surry.

Well, obviously it is just because he’s black as Vick’s attorney has previously pointed out. Or maybe because you can get a grand jury to “indict a ham sandwich”?
