U.S.: The Supreme Court tackles a case only Michael Vick could love

  • Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia • Discussing a law that bans the sale and marketing of videos that show dog fighting or other forms of animal cruelty. Justice Samuel Alito sarcastically refuted: “What about people who like to see human sacrifices? Suppose that is legally taking place someplace in the world. I mean, people here would probably love to see it.” We plan to redesign our Web site based on Mr. Alito’s suggestion. Hanging in the balance is the fate of Pittsville, Virginia, Robert Stevens, who sold a series of videos depicting animal cruelty. • source
