The Southern Christian Leadership Conference president
President, Alabama Senator Charles Steele
recently announced during a news conference that the group will find a way to honor Atlanta Falcons
former quarterback Michael Vick
during its national convention that starts today in Atlanta.
Now, as I understand it, the SCLC is a civil rights group. In my opinion, Mr. Steele has very bad standards when it comes to honoring "upstanding citizens".
"We will recognize Vick for being an outstanding human being," said Steele. "We will work with anyone who opens their heart and arms to us."
Hmmm, perhaps Vick donated money to the SCLC to get some positive press to offset his misbehavin recently.
The 27-year-old Vick has pleaded not guilty to charges of sponsoring a dogfighting operation. His trial begins November 26.
Co-defendant Tony Taylor changed his plea to guilty earlier this week in a deal with prosecutors. He is expected to testify against Vick.
Just "sponsoring dog fights" is bad enough. But this sick puppy abused the dogs
thru shooting them, drowning them or even electrocuting them.
I'd like to understand how this "civil rights" organization considers sick Vick and outstanding human being. I'd say their values are a little tainted.
