Beamer: "Michael Vick's a Good Person"

Frank Beamer was on the LaVar Arrington/Chad Dukes show this week, and, after talking about the Hokies, the inevitable question about Michael Vick was asked.

"I'm pulling for him," Beamer said. "I talked with him a couple weeks ago, and told him once again, and he expressed it, he needs to make better decisions. He needs to get back on his feet and he's working like heck to do that, and that's what I'm pulling for. And I said, 'Look how many kids you could help. Because here you are, you've lived this. You had it all, you had a lot, you've lost a lot, and now you're making better decisions about your life and now you're back on your feet.'

"So I think he could do a lot as far as helping young people with advice to be careful who you're hanging out with and make good decisions. And Michael Vick's a good person. He's made a mistake, made some mistakes, but Michael, to me, is a good person, and I'm pulling for him."

No I am sorry Vick is not a good person. He is a sociopath. This wasn't an act of immaturity or stupidity instead it was a well thought out business plan with employees and documented training methods.

This isn't smoking a little weed or driving drunk and killing someone. This is killing animals for no other reason than they didn't perfrom to Vick's satisfaction.
Normal folks don't go out and get defenseless dogs and use them to train pits and with the end result being the foo foos are dead.

And the terrorists at PETA and HSUS using Vick shows you how much these to organizations really care about dogs. Remember PETA euthanized mre animals in VA than all local animal control facilities.

Vick should be dumped in a pit with pit bulls and shredded.

And Frank beamer is a fool and a moron who only cares about winning as evidenced by his various recruiting classes. Winning is Everthing to Frankie! In VA Tech's adminstration had a set Frankie would be gone!

Does the official VA Tech definition of a good person include those who repeatedly torture and kill helpless animals?

What does anything Vick did have to do with when he was at VT?
