Human Life < Dog Life

Today, Donte Stallworth, a wide receiver for the Cleveland Browns, was released from prison after serving only 24 days. He'll now serve 2 years of house arrest. Stallworth was in prison for killing a pedestrian with his car.

Meanwhile, just this past May form Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick was released from prison after his 23 month sentence for dogfighting charges.

So, let's get this straight.

Michael Vick fights and kills dogs and gets nearly two years.
Donte Stallworth kills a human being and only gets 24 days?!

What's wrong with this picture?

Apparently to our judicial system and our penal system a human life is worth far less than the life of a dog.
