I understand he made a mistake but if i had made this kind of mistake i would spend a large portion of my life in prison and never again find a reputable job.
Don't blame the legal system...blame the victim's family. Apparently they didn't want him to do much time. I wonder why that could be? I am guessing he wrote them an apology note with heartfelt condolences and signed it XOXO.

Like you said, A month in jail and 10 years probation? Seriously? What the ****. Id be in jail until I was forty and im in my 20's. This country revolves so much around money its horrible. It is sad very sad.
And what does Vick have to do with this exactly? Is it because they are football players? The crimes are completely different. One is a federal crime and federal judges are much closer to the vest on sentencing.
Vick ran and funded an organized crime ring that involved gambling, dog fights, dog killing, and money laundering for 7 years. He is lucky his sentence was only as short as it was once his co-criminals turned on him.
