I was actually being serious:

Sheriff raids DMX' home, seizes dogs

Sat Aug 25, 12:42 PM ET

PHOENIX - Sheriff's deputies raided the home of rapper DMX on Friday, seizing several pit bulls and finding the remains of three other dogs but making no arrests. tip more than a week ago about dogs being kept in inhumane conditions at the Phoenix-area home, said Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

Detectives visited the home and then called one of the rapper's lawyers and told him that the conditions for the animals at the property needed to be improved or deputies would take action, Arpaio said. The dogs were not being fed or given water.

Authorities returned to the home Friday.

The 36-year-old musician and actor, whose real name is Earl Simmons, was not at home during the raid.

Simmons' lawyer, Murray Richman, said Simmons hasn't been in Arizona for at least two months and was "extremely disturbed" to hear the animals weren't being cared for properly.

"We had a caretaker that wasn't taking care, that's what happened," Richman said. "He loves dogs — he loves these animals. Those dogs are practically his family."

Richman said he hadn't been notified of problems at the property until he learned of the raid Friday. Sheriff's officials said they had contacted another lawyer who works for DMX.

Arpaio said the deputies who served a search warrant at the home Friday seized 12 pit bulls tied up on the property and took them to an old jail that has been converted into an animal shelter.

Deputies found the buried dogs when they dug up the back yard. One had apparently been burned and the cause of death on the others was unknown because the bodies were decomposing.

Deputies also found a variety of firearms, Arpaio said. Authorities sought additional warrants so they could check the guns to determine if they were legal.

DMX's albums include "It's Dark and Hell Is Hot" and "Flesh of My Flesh, Blood of My Blood" and "Year of the Dog ... Again."

Did Vick drop DMX's name?

I just read a quote where Vick said that what he did was immature and he needs to grow up. Yeah Mike, that's why people are sickened by this. I know that if I were to hear about an 18 year old running a dog fighting ring I'd think "eh, no big deal...he's just a kid". No, what you didn't wasn't wrong at all. Just immature. Christ almighty.

I didnt post it before, but i saw this "finding Jesus" thing comin' last week from a mile away.

The kendall link thread is a riot.

Yeah, "finding Jesus" is pretty much SOP. Like a get-out-of-jail-free card. Mayor Berry pioneered and perfected the art of confessing, rehab and finding Jesus as a way to get off the hook for just about anything.

the naacp is backing Vick as well. they are asking that Vick's judge go easy on him. It wasn't Al or Jesse that I saw on the news though.

I see Arthur Blanc is asking for about 20 mil signing bonus $$$$ back as well.

from king of the world to pushing fries overnight.
