A famous sports figure was arrested for taking part in a dog fighting ring and he faces federal charges.
Dog fighting has become popular again as a form of entertainment. And some of the dog owners are children who live in urban areas. Gambling is also involved.
Some popular rap artists gloryify the "sport" in thier rap videos, which is an influence on those getting involved.
Animal rights groups want the sports hero to be made an example of and so he was suspended from his contract as a football star. He could face up to 6 years in jail if convicted, he pleaded "not guilty".
Football entertainment, rap entertainment, and dog fighting entertainment all seem to be connected to the advocation of violence.
