He was immediately suspended by the NFL without pay and he lost his endorsement deals, eventually leading himself to bankruptcy. Mike was originally sentenced to 5 years in prison, which was a harsher sentence than usual, but was released after 23 months. The question still remains; did Mike Vick’s “harsher” treatment offend the rule of law? I would have to say that the rule of law was not offended in this case because in all honesty, Mike Vick got what he deserved. No one is above the law, and although Vick was given an unusual sentence, a message was needed to be sent to other high-profile figures and celebrities.

The idea of the university athletic department could have been made to pay financial restitution to the victims instead of taking away games. The family of Jerry Sandusky could have been charged with defamation of character on the university by his actions. Removing the statue of Joe Peterno should have never occurred because he earned that title as well as those young men who won the games. The outcome is still the same in regard that no matter how much you fine or punish this university the actions taken upon these victims can never be taken back. The outcome by the NCAA has sent a message to other universities and colleges to prove that punishments are far worse than could ever be expected.

Greg Griego, the teenager’s father and a former gang member, worked as a pastor and volunteered with inmates at the Metropolitan Detention Center. The teenager told police he shot his mother, the first victim in his rampage, because he was “frustrated” with her, Houston said. Police said that after shooting his brother and two sisters, Griego then waited five hours for his father to return from work and ambushed him with an AR-15 assault rifle - the same type of weapon used in the Newton, Connecticut, elementary school shootings. “It’s the first time I’ve been to a crime scene with so much destruction in one home,” Houston said, describing the scene as “horrific.” The dead have been identified as 51-year-old Greg Griego, his 40-year-old wife, Sarah Griego, and three of their children: a 9-year-old boy and two girls, ages 5 and 2. The couple had 10 children in all, including from a former marriage.
