Kaine Comments on Vick

Governor Tim Kaine has a few words about the federal dog fighting charges against Atlanta Falcons Quarterback Michael Vick.

Vick is scheduled to be arraigned in Richmond Federal Court Thursday afternoon.

In his monthly call-in show Thursday morning on the Virginia News Network, Kaine called the allegations "an outrageous, outrageous offense if it's true."

The governor said some of the details in the federal indictment about the alleged killing of dogs "will make your blood run cold." Federal prosecutors claim that Vick and three others accused in the case ran a dog fighting operation and killed dogs or had knowledge of their execution.

Charged along with Vick are 35-year-old Purnell Peace of Virginia Beach; 28-year-old Quanis Phillips of Atlanta; and 34-year-old Tony Taylor of Hampton.

Kaine says he doesn't have any sympathy for anyone who is convicted of such a crime.
