Nils Lofgren (Bruce Springsteen / E Street Band) Hits Out at ‘Chilling’ Dog Fighter Vick

Nils Lofgren, acclaimed singer, songwriter and guitarist in Bruce Springsteen's E Street Band, has written an impassioned call for balance in the recent media coverage of shamed NFL footballer and convicted dog fighter, Michael Vick.

Lofgren – writing for ESPN – says Vick's attitude toward his animal abuse was 'chilling'.

Lofgren writes:

"I do not know what is in Michael Vick's head or heart. But in a recent ESPN interview, and elsewhere, he stated that while he was committing these heinous acts of cruelty, it never occurred to him that he was doing anything wrong.

What a chilling, telling statement.

In Vick's case, I believe his second chance should certainly allow him to be free and to love and raise his family.

I think he should make speeches about the error of his ways and help animal groups. I understand that he is doing some of these things and I applaud that. He's also admitted to being haunted by his dogfighting days. That growth is welcome and necessary, but comes too late for me and those dogs."
