Why should Mike Vick be trusted with any more dogs?

In a recent interview, Mike Vick repeated his apology for his cruelty to dogs and expressed a wish to own another dog. However, he is forbidden to do so, I think, for good reason. What if he cannot overcome a temptation to abuse the animal and perhaps hits or beats that dog?  He reminds me of a wife beater who keeps apologizing for his misdeed and promises that he will never, ever do it again.

But unfortunately, he does. And just as unfortunately, it will happen again and again until the animal, in Mike Vick's case, winds up dead. Mike Vick has lost his credibility as far as his possible ownership is concerned. He should not be trusted owning any animal. He's better off with a stuffed dog.
