Letter: Forum throws mud on athleteHaving just returned from the Fargodome with my husband, two young sons and their friend from an amazing North Dakota State University Football Camp that was put on with style and professionalism, I am catching up on a few days’ reading in The Forum. How sad it is that The Forum was so quick to throw mud on an outstanding young athlete as the city was to file charges against him. Even now, with assault charges having been dismissed, and Cass County State’s Attorney Birch Burdick back-pedaling to explain why his office moved so quickly and didn’t take time to investigate before filing charges.
The Forum seems to continue to want to publicly humiliate Travis Beck and have posted the video of his time in the squad car. It is tragic when we have the city newspaper looking more like a tabloid.
Instead, Travis, hold your head high. I would be proud to have you, the 2011 FCS Most Valuable Player, teach football to my sons at next year’s camp.
